My first meeting with Mark and Noelle was in February of this year. They contacted the office about possibly having us DJ their wedding which was going to take place in their backyard in Point Pleasant and so I drove down to meet with them at their house and see what they had planned. As soon as we met we connected and started sharing ideas about how to make their reception different and unique. I was able to offer some suggestions that they loved and adopted, specifically altering the traditional timeline and having a cocktail hour before the ceremony. It’s something my wife and I did at our wedding 4 years ago and Mark and Noelle loved the idea. By the time we were done chatting they asked me to draw up a contract. I was thrilled because I really wanted to be a part of their wedding!
As the day approached I was keeping an eye on the weather and wouldn’t you know Mother Nature was being a little coy. Would there be thunder showers in the afternoon or evening? The forecast kept changing! Mark let me know I needn’t worry about my gear because he’d made sure I’d be set up under a tent but still, a good soaking can clear any dance floor. Well, I’ll skip the drama and just report, other than a little drizzle towards the end of the night the evening was perfect.
And by perfect I mean everything. They had hired Reverend Ben Hickey for the ceremony and he was great as always. Funny and personable! And when it came time to dance, Mark and Noelle’s family and friends were there to party! Because of the unique timeline (and overtime booked in advance) I had about 3 1/2 total hours of dance time. That can be extreme for some crowds but not Mark and Noelle’s. By 11pm the dance floor was still jammed and we ended the night on a high!
I’ll remember Mark and Noelle’s wedding for a long time now. They were a fun and unique couple to work with and I was so happy that their night ended up being, well, perfect!
Thanks Mark for leaving me this AWESOME review!
