You don’t always get to work with a Bride & Groom that you click with, but somehow this weekend I had two in a row!!
Saturday – Kirsten & J.R. – Neshanic Valley Golf Course in Branchburg, NJ
Kirsten & J.R., are two of the most down to earth people you will ever meet. They are so friendly and fun to be around and both always have a smile on their face. DJing their wedding at Neshanic Valley Golf Course was so much fun.
They had a beautiful day, and were able to take full advantage of the deck and their guests loved it. They also had a photo booth which for most of the night had a line out the door with people wanting to take pictures in it. Kirsten treated all the guests to Ice cold bottles of Stewarts Root Beer, which was so perfect on a summer’s day. Kirsten is an Alumnus of the Virginia Tech Hokies, so she and her fellow Hokies performed the “Hokey Pokey” of the guests. J.R.’s Groomsmen were able to arrange for the township’s Fire Department to bring one of the Fire Trucks down to the banquet hall in order for the Kirsten & J.R. and their Bridal Party to take pictures on.
Kirsten & J.R. also did something special for some of their married friends & family, we would play those particular guests Wedding Song and have the couple come up and dance to it.
Some of the special dedications were:
“Unforgettable” – Nat King Cole for Lindsay and Sean Dugan’s Wedding Song
“Dig” – Incubus for Chris and Morgan Misiur’s Wedding Song
“At Last” – Etta James for Karen and Gabe Adam’s Wedding Song
“You Are The Best Thing” – Ray LaMontagne for Steve and Katie Gillberg’s Wedding Song
“Love Can Make You Happy” – Mercy for Kirsten’s Parent’s Wedding Song
“Lucky” – Jason Mraz & Colbie Caillat for Heather and Mike Mastroserio’s Wedding Song
“You Are The Sunshine Of My Life” – Stevie Wonder for the Moran’s Wedding Song
There were lots of great moments throughout the evening as well as lots of fun, laughter, and dancing. All of the guests including myself and Jim Wilson, our music mixer for the wedding, had an awesome time.
Sunday – Amelia & Greg – The Palace in Somerset, NJ
Amelia & Greg are two very loving people, which was more than evident at their Wedding Reception due to way their Friends and Family just gravitated to them through the night. To top it off they are both music lovers, which I saw first hand when I met them at their home and saw their immense Vinyl collection. (May have been bigger than mine!!) We had a lot of fun discussing music and planning out the play lists for the evening, and their guests enjoyed the music selections and danced the night away.
One thing that I thought was impressive was that Greg’s Best Man was his Grandfather, and he really was Greg’s best friend, it showed a lot of character and was very touching. We had lots of time to dance, and the guests took advantage of every second.
Some of the fun songs we partied to were:
“Do I Do” – Stevie Wonder
“Never Too Much” – Luther Vandross
“Wobble” – VIC
“Show Me Love” – Steve Angello & Laidback Luke ft Robin S
“Pump Up the Jam” – Technotronic
As well as a plethora of dance songs both fast and slow. Greg and Amelia shared a few special dedications to each other and their parents. They also had tons of college friends from Rutgers (Greg) and Trenton State (Amelia) who partied with them to some classics from when they were in school.
The Maitre’ D Josh and the staff at The Palace put on an impressive Cocktail Hour, Dinner, and Venetian Dessert as they always do. I also had the pleasure of working with Matt the Photographer for the second week in a row, and my personal favorite, my brother Steven as my music mixer.
