North Pavilion | Calamigos Ranch Wedding

This video captures some highlights from Amie & Jose's wedding at the Calamigos Ranch The North Pavilion Room!

On June 24, 2018, I DJed and hosted Amie & Jose's wedding. I was in charge of their ceremony, cocktail, and reception. Since it was my first time to DJ at that particular area, I scouted the venue a couple of weeks before the wedding to figure out my setup.

For the ceremony, I used 2-QSC K8.2 speakers with my Wireless Sennheiser Speaker system to cover the wide seating space. It was a beautiful ceremony and sounded wonderful! Everyone could hear what was happening from both sides of the ceremony and I didn't have to set up a wired XLR to daisy chain the speakers!

For the cocktail hour, I set up 1 RCF EVOX 8 Speaker on the deck. It's super low profile and has a great wide sound coverage.

For the reception, I have a setup crew who put all the trusses, lighting and sound together for me. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to put any speakers underneath the tent due to sound restrictions, so I had my speakers under the building and point my speakers outwards. My assistant was great and he helped me figure out my sound levels so the people in the back can hear me. 

I also had a custom monogram for the client. I used my ADJ Ikon Profile WW and got my gobo done from www.progobo.com

As for entertainment, we started off with a grand entrance, first dance, surprise dance with the bridal party, dinner, speeches, and dancing! While the couple was taking pictures outside, I kept the guests entertained and opened up the dance floor for people to dance. I started playing some jams and later that night cranked up the energy. I mixed a mixture of 80s, 90s, Hip Hop, 00s, and Top 40.

Overall, it was a great night and Amie and Jose had a wonderful time!
Thanks for having me as your DJ!

On June 3, 2018, I had the pleasure to DJ and host Drorit and Ron's wedding. I took care of their ceremony, cocktail, and reception at the Birchwood Room. They were a fun couple who like to have fun and dance! That night, I played a mixture of funk, disco, Top 40, 80s and 90s! We even did the Hora and had their friend sing a bit of karaoke. Overall, the vibe was perfect and they all had a great time.

When a DJ & Band Rocks a Wedding!

On September 17, 2017, I DJed a wonderful wedding at the Birchwood Room in Calamigos Ranch for Danny & Evelyn. They hired me to DJ & MC for their ceremony and reception. At that time, it was my 2nd time DJing at the Birchwood Room and it was a pleasure to be back again. 

Their wedding ceremony took place on the lawn in front of the fountain. I provided a wireless microphone and speaker to play music and for the officiant to speak. Everything went smoothly and the bride's song selection added an elegant and personal touch.

For the cocktail hour, they had a live band play r&b and Motown tracks to set the mood of the night. They were a great addition to add to their wedding and people loved them. 

For the dinner, it took place on the patio of the venue which created a nice, intimate vibe. We had the band play during the 1st half of dinner and I had my chance to spin the 2nd half.

After the wedding formalities, we had the band open up the dance floor playing amazing covers such as September, Uptown Funk, and other dance classics. Then we switched up the vibe when it was my turn to perform. I continued to keep the dance floor by mixing a Latin set that included Suavemente, Danza Kuduro, Baila Esta Cumbia, and other Latin bangers. Everyone danced till the end and had an amazing time. 

Overall, Danny, Evelyn, and their guests had a great time at the wedding. Thank you for having me as your DJ!

Wedding of Christine & Nathan

On March 26, 2017, I DJed and hosted at one of my favorite venues, Calamigos Ranch at the Oaks Room in Malibu, CA. This time it was for the wedding of Christine & Nathan. I was in charge of their wedding ceremony, cocktail, and reception. If you've never been here, it's an amazing place tucked in this hills of Malibu. At this particular venue and room, the ceremony is placed right in front of a beautiful curved waterfall which creates a serene scene as the couple gets married. Shortly after the ceremony, guests enjoyed the cocktail hour outside on the patio. For the reception, I gathered everyone inside and asked to position themselves around the dance floor as we welcomed the wedding party and the newlyweds. It was a fun grand entrance and set the tone of the night. We continued with the first dance, blessing of the meal, dinner, speeches, a slideshow presentation, parents dances, dancing and cake cutting. One of the things I enjoyed that night was mixing in some K-Pop, Korean Pop, music for the bride and her family/friends. I also worked with a great team of vendors who all made the night smooth and fun. Overall, it was an amazingly fun night! Thank you Christine & Nathan for having me as your DJ!
