This video captures some fun highlights from Mary & Jay's wedding at the Knollwood Country Club!
On September 8, 2018, I had the pleasure to DJ and host Mary and Jay's wedding at the Knollwood Country Club. As one of the preferred vendors at the venue, I can say that this is a great place to host an event. That evening, I was in charge of playing music during the cocktail hour and entertaining their guests during the reception.
As for equipment goes, I used my RCF EVOX 8 speakers with my LED Moving Heads and ADJ Dotz Tpar for lighting. My couple also requested uplights and I set up 18 Ape Labs Maxi uplights around the room. All of my lights are synced to my lighting software SoundSwitch which really created a fun party vibe throughout the room. I was also able to connect my secondary laptop to the venue's in-house TV system, so I played their Proposal video on there, and when it's time to dance, I had my own background dance video that I play.
For the reception itself, we kicked things off with a fun grand entrance. Then we heard a Jonny Z original song called "The Happiest Man" which he performed live for their First Dance. We went through the formalities such as the parent dances, bouquet and garter toss.
There were a few things that really made this wedding popping. One, when it was time for them to do their cake cutting, I had the guests form a tunnel as Mary and Jay go under as they make their way to the cake table. This was spontaneous and was my first time doing this! It worked out really well because instead of guests leaving the dance floor, we had them involved for the cake cutting. Second, Jay and Mary had organized a dance-off and this was something that we discussed earlier during the planning stages. We pulled it off and the dancers showed off their amazing dance moves!
For music, I played a mixture of everything that would get their guests dancing and they mainly left the music up to me. I played music such as Latin, group dances, 90s, 00s, and some EDM!
Overall, this was such a great wedding and a super fun and sweet couple. It was a pleasure being their DJ and MC.
Congrats, Jay & Mary!
