This past weekend, I had the pleasure of DJing my first same sex wedding.
When I found out I was going to share such an incredible moment with Holly and Gail, I couldn’t contain myself. I drove out to Ringoes, NJ on a rainy Saturday to the beautifully rustic Unionville Vineyards. If you’ve ever been to the venue Perona Farms, it is very similar.
Once the ceremony was over, it was time for cocktail hour. The drinks were flowing and the room was filled with music by the Vitamin String Quartet. As the guests made their way from cocktail hour to the reception, you could sense everyone was happy and excited for this new chapter for Holly and Gail. The rock n’ roll and country couple shared their first dance to a great slow song “Thank You” by Led Zeppelin.
Dinner was served and then the party really started. One of the best moments from the night is when Holly gave the party her best “Shoop” Lip Sync.
As the evening went on, we played the “Thunderstruck” drinking game. I told everyone to get into a circle with a full drink in their hands. I then started the song “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC. One person started drinking until they heard the lyrics, “Thunder”, and then the next person started to drink and so on and so forth.
It was honor to DJ for Holly and Gail. I wish them nothing but happiness. I also wish Holly the best of luck on her next tour in the Coast Guard.
