It was a weird Labor Day Weekend weather-wise. How weird? you ask. Good question. When I met with Joe and Dawn, whose wedding I was DJing and MCing the Friday night of Labor Day weekend at The Grain House at The Olde Mill Inn in Basking Ridge, they told me I’d be set up outside the dining room under a tent. My first thought, and remember this was a month or so before the wedding, was “ hope it’s not too hot and humid of a night.” The week of the wedding Dawn called to make sure we’d be ok “out in the cold.” That’s the kind of night it was, unseasonably cool for early September. As it turned out we were fine and her guests were able to dance the night away outdoors and not melt from being too hot. The weather was perfect!
What stands out most about Dawn and Joe’s wedding is a set I played about halfway through the night. One of their guests asked me to play some “freestyle” so I worked Stevie B’s “Spring Love” in. The dance floor immediately doubled and Dawn and her friends were dancing with a renewed energy. Hmm, I thought, funny that she didn’t tell me she wanted free style. But ok, let me see if they love the whole genre or did I just get lucky with this one song. I played TKA’s “Maria” next. Same reaction! I was clearly bringing this group back to their clubbing days and they were eating it up. I played a few more from that same era and it wound up being one of the best sets of the night. I’ve uploaded that set to my Sound Cloud page and you can hear it here.
Dawn and Joe had also hired Elite Digital Images to shoot their wedding. I got to work with Cyndi and Jen and I’m sharing some of their pictures in this blog. To see even more of their work be sure to follow our studio on Facebook.
Congratulations Dawn and Joe!
