My 3rd Destination Wedding!

This video captures highlights of a destination wedding I DJed at Pine Hills Lodge in Julian, CA

On January 13, 2018, I traveled down to Julian, CA to DJ Alexis and Jianina's wedding in Pine Hills Lodge. It was an intimate wedding mostly comprising of their family and close friends. 
Fun history fact: Professional boxer, Jack Dempsey, used to train at the lodge when he built a gym there.

That evening I was in charge of their ceremony and reception. Originally, we were supposed to have the ceremony outdoors, but due to recent weather in the area, we kept it indoors. 
For the ceremony, I provided a simple QSC K8.2 speaker setup with a Shure GLXD24/SM58 Mic for the officiant.

For the cocktail hour, everyone went to the lodge's bar area for drinks and appetizers while Jianina and Alexis took pictures. The venue provided music for the cocktail hour using my iPad.

The dinner reception was in the room next over. It was beautifully decorated and I set up my uplights for the extra touch. I used my wireless Ape Labs Maxi with shield covers which were perfect because I didn't have to worry about cables and finding power outlets in the room. I set the color to amber and they added a nice warmth to the lodge/cabin feel of the room.

Once we had everybody seated in the reception area, we continued with the grand entrance, first dance, parent dances, toasts, cake cutting, money dance, and ended it with open dancing. 

Everybody had a great time and I'm glad I got to make it a fun and memorable experience for Jianina and Alexis.

Thanks for having me as your DJ!

Wedding of Shawna & Kevin

On October 8, 2016, I DJed the wedding of Shawna & Kevin at Rancho Sol Del Pacifico in Malibu, California. It was a beautiful wedding as it took place at the top of one of the hills overlooking Malibu and the beach. I worked with an amazing team of vendors such as Vanessa from NessaEvents and Pierre from Pierre's Catering. The energy and vibe from the crowd were phenomenal as they came in with an attitude to celebrate Shawna & Kevin's marriage. As for music, the dance floor was filled throughout the night as I played some classic wedding hits as well as modern dance favorites. Overall, everyone had a great time that night. Congrats Shawna & Kevin! And thank you for having me as your DJ!
