It’s always a cool thing when I get to work with a couple and it’s my own referral. So not only do they know what to expect, but to a degree I do as well. But what always amazes me is sometime show far back that referral train goes.
So last weekend I celebrated with Shawn Rank & Brian Kermizian as they celebrated their wedding at beautiful Mountain Creek in Vernon, NJ. Side note- it also amazes me how beautiful some parts of our state are and the Vernon/Hamburg area is just incredible this time of year. But anywho, so I DJ’d Brian’s sister’s wedding last year- Leigh married her husband Eddie at the Berkeley in Asbury Park. But prior to that I did Brian & Leigh’s cousin Mark’s wedding to his wife Kirstin in 2012. Then I did Kirstin’s sister Kerrin’s wedding to her hubby Jonathan in 2013. And next year I’m doing Mark’s sister Kelly’s wedding to her fiance John…The family lines get a little confusing lol, but it’s just so cool when one event can create memories at so many others.
So Shawn & Brian had their ceremony right at the bottom of one of the slopes at Mountain Creek and it made for a stunning backdrop. After that we moved inside for cocktail and began the celebration for the bride and groom. We got the party started immediately upon Shawn & Brian entering the room. They decided to come into the ballroom to “Lady” by Lionel Richie and there’s some meaning behind it: Brian and Shawn have been together for quite a while but he never liked the term “girlfriend”, so he would always refer to Shawn as his “lady” or his “special lady friend”. From there I mixed right into “On The Floor” by Pitbull & J-Lo and the party was on!
Another amazing night with amazing people and congrats again to Brian and his lady Shawn!
