I knew right from the beginning that this was a special couple and that it was going to be an amazing night! I’ve been working as a DJ/Emcee for 12 years now and I’ve done my fair share of weddings. Because I’ve met with so many couples over the years, I tend to notice when a bride/groom has the “It” factor. Gina & Eric are the couple that everyone can’t get enough of. Both super kind, funny, and just know how to have a great time. We had a great time alright!
Ceremony was held in the beautiful gardens behind English Manor. If you’ve never been to the English Manor I highly recommend you visit if you’re shopping for a venue. From the manicured grounds, the amazing dining and service, this one wedding house and its superb staff are a winner every time. Back to Eric & Gina, I never met these two in person. I took care of all their details on BrideLive.com. This made the planning process much more convenient and stress free since they lived over an hour from our offices.
My first time actually meeting them was while they walked back down the aisle as husband & wife. They both looked fantastic, gleaming smiles, while family & friends erupted in applause. You could feel the magic in the air and I knew from the pulse of the evening we were just getting started.
Everyone made their way to cocktail hour while Eric & Gina and the bridal party finished up photos in the gardens with AbellaStudios.com who also had their skilled videographers on hand. The Elite team moved inside where Dave from Elite Extreme was just putting the finishing touches on the intelligent lighting package. Man these lights are incredible! We can change the environment of the room at anytime. Nicole and I on the other hand warmed up our singing voices to perform for dinner. I was very lucky to have Nicole on the event with me as she is an exceptional talent who can sing Adele to Aretha Franklin and everything in between. Together we can sing our butts off! It’s a real treat to work with her.
Introductions were crazy good with the Bridal Party dancing in to “All I Do is Win” and Eric & Gina charging into the room to some heavy beats. During their 1st dance everyone stood and watched as if William & Kate were dancing outside Kensington Palace. Again, magic was in the air! After the formalities, it didn’t take long for the dance floor to pack up and it literally stayed that way all night long!! One of the highlights of the evening was a surprise dedication to Gina from Eric. With his cousin singing backups, watch now, Eric busts out “Nothing on You” by B.O.B. This boy is a playa lol The whole place went crazy! Gina was mesmerized by his performance. It just about put the icing on top of what was already an amazing evening with these two and their friends & family. It was an honor to be there and I can tell you the Elite team had just as much fun as the guests did! Enjoy you lives together Gina & Eric!
