3 Cord Weddings

3 Cord Weddings is a small DJ & Photography company with a unique history. Our story began when two successful wedding vendors said their vows and combined their DJ & Photography businesses to create 3 Cord Weddings in Sioux Falls SD.

Working together as a husband & wife team has a few amazing advantages. Not only are we able to work together, but as a small company, we can take the time to personally focus on each one of our couples to ensure their wedding day is exactly what they want it to be.

Being a married team of professionals means our level of communication allows us to work together to create little moments that capture your attention, craft those moments into cherished memories and capture them with beautiful photography.

When you hire 3 Cord Weddings DJ & Photography, you’re hiring two of the best wedding professionals to ensure that your wedding is exciting, seamless, and fun. We look forward to serving you.

Music is a powerful tool for creating the day of your dreams. A slow song in the right moment can pull two people close together. But it takes more than just music to create lifelong memories. It takes the experience to know what will keep your guests having fun, and engaging with your guests to have everyone raving about your reception.


Pictures have the unique ability to throw you back to a unique time in our lives. Our goal is that no matter where life takes you, you’ll always be able to remember how special you felt on your wedding day. We think it’s important that your entire wedding day is documented and that’s why we only offer All-Day photography rather than an hourly package.  We’re here to help you remember your special day, forever.

Simply Awesome.

We’re a husband & wife DJ/Photography team. We’re down to earth, easy to work with, and we’re here to serve. Our goal is to take the pressure and stress of a wedding away. We want you to trust that you’ve found the right people to take care of your day. Most of all, we want your day to be awesome.

When my husband and I found out about 3 Cord Weddings we changed our wedding date just so we could work with them! Erin and Drysen are wonderful to work with. Leading up to the wedding day, they were so hopeful with our timeline and ideas to help our day run smooth. On our wedding day, Erin and Drysen made everything go off without a hitch. Erin was with my girls and the guys all day. She never missed a beat. She even dealt with our wild wedding party and crazy puppy! When we got to the reception Drysen was out front waiting for us! From the moment our reception started to the very end Drysen kept the mood of the night going. The couple works wonderfully together and are extremely professional. I would recommend them to any! Absolutely love them!

There aren't many cases where there aren't enough stars to accurately rate a service but 3 Cord is VERY different in that Erin & Drysen are more than just a service/business, they are people, friends, and an outstanding couple running a top notch business. The quality of service is beyond what I could have ever imagined, from our first meeting when they drove in less than ideal winter conditions nearly an hour to come speak with unknown potential customers, to delivering our final products on our wedding day (and shortly after for our pictures). They were always easily accessible when we needed questions answered and their professionalism was unmatched but informal enough to feel like long time friends. The value 3 Cord Weddings provides was unbelievable (to the point we were skeptical at first) but the services and products provided were equal to the best we could have found in separate DJ and photographers. The greatest benefit however was that with Erin an Drysen there was no gap in communication which made for A LOT less stress for my wife and I. Drysen handled virtually all of the orchestration of the event for us on our wedding day which made everything flow smoothly throughout the night and helped make our wedding the BEST day of our lives. Thank you 3 Cord Weddings!!
