On February 17, 2018, I DJed a destination wedding up in Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa for Katherine & Tyler. That evening I was in charge of the ceremony, cocktail, and reception.

The ceremony was at a beautiful spot with the sight of Lake Arrowhead in the background. I provided sound, music, and microphones for the officiant and the couple. The wedding ceremony was a success, and shortly after, everyone joined the cocktail hour at the resort's lobby. I also provided music as guests enjoyed drinks and appetizers.

Then it was time to welcome the guests into the room for the reception. The room was beautifully arranged and decorated. To lighten up the area, I set up my uplights around the walls of the room and had my DJ setup at the back of the room. The couple had their grand entrance, dinner, toasts, first dance, anniversary dance, bouquet toss, garter removal/toss, cake cutting, father & daughter dance, group photo, and dancing! 

It was an intimate wedding with their close family and friends, and we were so good on time that we had almost 3 hours of dancing! I played music that was fun for all age groups that I got the young and old up on their feet. This was such a fun wedding and I'm glad that Katherine and Tyler had an amazing time.

Destination Wedding at Highland Dell Lodge in Monte Rio, CA

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.

DJ TALK:
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.

WEDDING TALK:
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!

Wedding success!
