On August 12, 2017, I DJed and hosted a gorgeous wedding at Mr. C Hotel in Beverly Hills for Alex and Clelia. We expected a crowd of about 110 people with French, Armenian, and American backgrounds. People flew from different parts of the world to celebrate Alex and Clelia's big day.
This was my first time DJing at the hotel and the whole process went smoothly. I set up an appointment to visit the venue a few weeks before the wedding, and the hotel representative gave me a thorough walkthrough of the place. Since the ceremony, cocktail, and reception sites were at 3 different locations within the property, it was good for me to check the place out beforehand. I had a pleasant experience with the hotel and its staff.
On the day of the wedding, I arrived early with my assistant, Chris, to set up. Fortunately, the hotel had WOVA (World of Video & Audio) on site to have the ceremony sound already set up, and I just had to plug in my audio source to play the music for the ceremony. For the cocktail hour, we set up 1 speaker inside Mr. C's lobby to play some Italian standards music when guests enter. The reception took place on the upper floor which had a great view of Los Angeles from the building's outdoor patio. Inside the reception room, we placed uplights around the walls to create the vibe the bride and groom were going for. For sound during the reception, I had a basic sound system to match their intimate wedding theme.
For the rest of the night, everything went smoothly from the grand entrance, first dance, dinner, speeches, parent dances, and dancing. I had a fun chance to play some French and Armenian music to please both sides of the families and mixed in American music to bring everybody together. The DJ's job is read the crowd and play the right music at the right time, and I believe I did my job really well.
I'm so happy for Alex and Clelia and am glad that they had an amazing time with their family, friends, and loved ones. I had a blast being their DJ and host and I hope to work at Mr. C Hotel again soon.
