I had the pleasure of providing the music and MCing for Linda and Andy at the Crystal Point. As I prepared for the reception I got very excited seeing their music list. It was filled with some cool and obscure requests and heavy on 80s (which was such an awesome decade for party music.) I am happy to report the wedding was great and Linda and Andy and their family and friends danced the night away to everything I played.
Part of the joy of doing what I do is the great people I get to work with. I was in Ian’s room at the Crystal Point and he runs a great wedding. He’s loose and carefree and let’s the night evolve organically and he also knows that a great party makes everything else about the night better. Ian kept giving me the thumbs up all night and he genuinely seemed to enjoy the soundtrack, specifically because most of what I was playing was not standard wedding fare. As an example, here’s a set I spun for Linda and Andy right before dinner. It’s filled with songs I don’t normally play at weddings and it worked! The dance floor was packed through this whole set
I also had the chance to work with photographer Ashley Meyer from Meyer Photo + Video for the first time. At one point I saw Ashley laying on the ground to get a great shot of Linda and Andy which made smile – she obviously cares about what she does and wants nothing but the best for her clients. I hope to have the chance to work with her again and I thank her for letting me use some of her images in this blog.
Congratulations Andy and Linda!
