DJed a Destination Wedding at Highland Dell Lodge in Monte Rio, California for my childhood friend's wedding!
On August 26, 2017, I had a great opportunity to DJ one of my childhood friend's wedding up in Monte Rio, California. We knew each other since we were kids and glad we reconnected when she asked me to be a part of her wedding.
Since this was my second destination wedding, I already had an idea what to expect and what I would need to perform at the wedding. I connected with the venue manager at Highland Dell Lodge and communicated what DJs have done in the past and the equipment that they already provide and set up. Fortunately, the venue already provided the sound system, cables, and stage area where I'll be performing. On my travels, I just had to bring my controller, laptop, headphones, laptop stand, wireless microphone, and lights. On the day of the event, Herb, the venue manager, made sure I was up and running well to perform. He was great to work with in making all of this happen.
Sonia and Matt's wedding took place at a beautiful lodge up in Monte Rio, California. This was a destination wedding for most of her friends and family. Their ceremony was held at Riverfront Meadow which was located across the river. It was an outdoor ceremony and Sonia's friends handled the speaker, microphone, and music setup. It was great to attend the ceremony as a guest. After the ceremony, I was able to reconnect with Sonia's family and make new friends with some of the guests along the way.
After the ceremony, we moved the 100 wedding guests to Highland Dell Lodge where the cocktail and reception took place. I played some Italian standards music as guests enjoy catching up with one another over drinks and appetizers. Then I hyped up their guests for the grand entrance. Then we enjoyed a nice dinner with a mix of Bossanova and some Thievery Corporation (album "Saudade") music in the background (Amazing music by the way). Afterwards, we enjoyed some toasts from both fathers of the bride and groom, maid of honor and best man. Then we continued with the first dance, father & daughter dance, mother & son dance, and opened up the dance floor for dancing.
I had an amazing dance set comprising of 70s, 80s, disco, merengue, salsa, 90s, 00s, and hip hop. In this video, you'll hear a sample of songs that I played that night. We had people dancing and singing their hearts out the entire night and everybody had a great time. At the end of the video, our bride, Sonia, gave a quick testimonial of my services which I'm so glad that she and Matt and had an amazing time at the wedding. Thank you, Sonia and Matt, for having me as your DJ!
