Meritage Entertainment-A new approach for the modern couple.

"To say they were awesome is an understatement! They were PERFECTION! So professional, so fun and so amazingly great at what they do!"- Jennifer Orlando

James & Liz DiNanno started Meritage Entertainment with one vision...offering couples highly personalized entertainment. Couples notice the difference immediately in professionalism, passion, and expertise. Meritage offers unique DJ and Uplighting services to make weddings and events unforgettable.

With over ten years of experience, and a degree in the field, their entertainers maintain an energetic, yet classy appearance throughout each event. Flawless formalities, polished speaking skills, club like-mixing, and a passion for what they do is evident at every wedding.

Meritage Entertainment specializes in making memories that last a lifetime. Understanding that no wedding is exactly the same, they adapt to the desires of each client's event. With a pioneering style, customized uplighting, and the perfect music at the perfect moments, all party attendees leave reflecting on what a wonderful time they had together.

The company has won the "Bride's Choice Award" 3 times!
