Tiffany blue is a pretty universal and identifying color isn’t it? It signifies elegance and high quality. It’s no wonder then that Brenda and John had that as their color scheme. From the bridesmaids dresses to the centerpieces to the wedding cake, that striking blue color was splashed throughout their reception.
When I first met with Brenda and John to review their plans for their wedding I was very impressed with the music list they handed me. With about 40 songs on it, they touched on about every genre of music you could think of. They had some wedding standards (We Are Family and Celebration) some audience participation (Electric Slide and YMCA) some country (Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy and Red Solo Cup) some 80s (Jessie’s Girl and Don’t Stop Believing) some Old School (This Is How We Do it and Still Not A Player) and some new dance music (We Found Love and I Gotta a Feeling). One of my goals at a wedding is to play a wide range of music in an effort to try to make every guest happy (I know they say you can’t please all the people all the time but you can’t blame a DJ for trying!). So playing Brenda and John’s requests would accomplish just that.
The reception was held at The Channel Club which is definitely one of my favorite places to work. The views of the marina are stunning, the food is always great and the staff is as friendly and accommodating as there is in this business (starting with the General Manager Fred who is as nice a guy as you’ll ever meet). One of the things I love about the Channel Club is they have some shelves over by the bar area and they encourage brides and grooms to bring some family pictures to put on those shelves. It almost makes it seem like the party is taking place in someone’s private mansion on the inlet. Not only did Brenda and John bring some photos but apparently John’s family owns a bakery so when it was dessert time they also put out a tray of their very own Italian cookies in that area. Talk about personalization!
The party itself was very good. Brenda and John’s family and friends responded well to the music they had selected and the dance floor was packed most of the night. Brenda and John had also come up with a unique idea that went over well. As I mentioned they asked me to play Red Solo Cup (which has become a fun little sing-along this year) but they also wanted me to hand out, what else, red solo cups to all the guests. It was a pretty funny dichotomy to see a room full of formally dressed wedding guests (surrounded by this elegant tiffany blue atmosphere) holding up these red, plastic cups while shouting out the lyrics: “Let’s have a party!”
Brenda and John were heading off to San Diego for their honeymoon. I couldn’t be happier for them and I wish this wonderful couple a lifetime of elegant tiffany blue moments (with just enough red solo cups to keep it real!)
