Friday, June 22, 2012 Harriet and Nicholas at the Oyster Point Hotel in Red Bank
Harriet and Nick were super fun to work with. They had lots of ideas and questions, and they really looked for my input to help create a unique structure for the wedding. Living on the other side of the country in California, I used the BrideLive
to my advantage during the sales and party planning process and it helped out tremendously. I did have an opportunity to meet with Nick and Harriet one time before the wedding and that’s very important to me as an entertainer.
I know of other companies around the country where the client books the company and they just sends a DJ, whereas I want to meet my brides and grooms. I want to be able to work with them one-on-one to find out what they’re looking for and really build a rapport with them. For me, being able to sit down with Nick and Harriet really meant a lot to me because I got to see the vision they had for their big day.
Nick and Harriet had lots of little things that added to the day. Harriet did three changes throughout the course of the evening. She wore three different dresses and we introduced them into the room to a TI song. they actually dance their first dance to Trey Song’s version of Use Somebody by Kings of Leon
. But for me, as a DJ loving music, where I had the most fun was putting their cocktail and dinner mixes together. Harriet and Nick wanted a mix of 90s alternative rock which took me back to my middle school and early high school days. I got to play some great tracks during dinner like Lenny Kravitz “Are You Gonna Go My Way”
, “Semi-Charmed Kind of Life” by Third Eye Blind
, and “One Headlight” by The Wallflowers
. This made me feel nostalgic and brought me back in time. It’s not everyday that you get to put a special touch on somebody’s day that also touches your emotions as well. It was a lot of fun and I look forward to working with more couples like this in the future.
