About Us

DJ Dr. Data

DJ/MC Entertainer

Paul Milnes (DJ Dr. Data), has been performing on and off as a DJ for more than 30 years. Starting in high school doing parties and school dances, he eventually paid his way through college DJing parties, wedding receptions, corporate events, and any other occasion that required music with a professional entertainer.

Paul’s love for music and high-end audio equipment has carried over into his personal life. Over the years, Paul has become an avid audiophile, with a love for not only music but also high-quality sound equipment. He loves to buy, sell, repair, and refurbish high quality and vintage audio equipment. He is constantly tweaking things to make them sound better, not only in the Center Stage music system but also throughout his home.

Nancy Sawyer

Ceremony Officiant and Graphic Designer

Nancy works closely with couples to create a unique wedding ceremony that truly captures the love of the individual couple. Nancy respects the backgrounds of each couple and customizes the ceremony according to their beliefs and customs, whether they be non-denominational, non-religious, secular, or spiritual.

Her most recent clients, Amy and Stephanie, capture her work best in their testimonial:

"Nancy is the most wonderful officiant we could have imagined. It was such a pleasure to work with her, from the planning stages to the big day itself! Throughout the process, we were confident that we were in the most capable of hands. Nancy really took the time to get to know us, and her warmth and calm made what could have been a potentially stressful and overwhelming experience one that was not only comfortable, but meaningful and joyful! She was thoughtful, open-minded and responsive, and perfectly captured what was important to us on our wedding day.

"Nancy listened carefully to our views about marriage and ideas for the ceremony, as well as our story and feelings about each other, and then spun these into an eloquent reflection that was incredibly meaningful to us. On our big day, she beautifully captured and expressed the sentiments that we value most. Working with Nancy also helped us clarify our own ideas about our wedding, and marriage in general! Her grace, eloquence, insight and poise were truly a gift. We would recommend her most highly to any couple! We are so grateful to Nancy for making our wedding day so incredibly special!"
