LIT Wedding at Imperial Palace Pasadena

On April 27, 2019, I had the pleasure to DJ and host for Carla & Alain's wedding at the Imperial Palace Banquet Hall in Pasadena, CA. This video captures my DJ gear used, the venue's amazing lighting, and some fun highlights from their special day. #litwedding

This was my first time working at Imperial Palace Banquet Hall and was immediately impressed by the decor and lighting. This place is made for events as it already has lighting built-in to the walls and ceilings and has proper staging areas for the bride and groom and the DJ. I heard that the place was recently renovated and now it looks spectacular!

Today, I was just in charge of their cocktail and reception. For the cocktail hour, I just used my Bose S1 in the lobby and played some background music. For the reception, I used two RCF EVOX 8 speakers and 1 RCF 708asII subwoofer. I also used a wireless transmitter from my mixer to a wireless receiver for my 2nd EVOX 8 speaker to help me save time from running an extra cable. I also used white tape to clean up my cables and to help it blend onto the floor.

Before the grand entrance, we passed out the glow foam sticks for the guests to use when we welcome the people in. As I was announcing the people to come in, the person who was in charge of the lights used an iPad to control the lighting fixtures and made the lights go crazy! Besides the music and announcement, lighting definitely hyped up the entrance and made it feel like a club/concert! Such a fun time.

Then for the First Dance, the venue used a low-lying fog machine to create the dance in the clouds effect. From then on, we proceeded with dinner, pictures, toasts, money dance, and more. For the rest of the night, we got people up and dancing. I mixed in a mixture of Top 40, throwbacks, hip hop, and pop.

For the end of the night, they've chosen a Hawaiian song to close things up which reflects their fond memories and love of Hawaii. Everyone had a great time that evening and finished on a happy, feel-good note. Congrats Carla and Alain! Thank you for having me!

When your couple are the stars of their wedding!

Had the pleasure DJing and hosting Carly & Harry's fun wedding at Mon Amour Banquet in Anaheim, CA! This video captures some amazing times that night.

Carly and I have worked together at 2 previous weddings when she was coordinating and I was the DJ. Now it was her turn to have her love story told and celebrated with her friends and family.

On December 21, 2019, we held Carly & Harry's celebration at Mon Amour Banquet in Anaheim, California. The venue was great at accommodating all 220 guests for their cocktail and reception.

We kicked things off with an energetic grand entrance which set the tone for the night. We then had their first dance, family introductions, champagne toast, delicious dinner, parents dances, toasts, table visits, Joe's Italian Ice (btw, best shaved ice ever!), cake cutting, then we had their special surprise wedding party dance!

The special dance kicked off the party which we jumped into a group photo, then some traditional Khmer/Cambodian dances. After that, it was party mode for the rest of the night!

That evening I was placed on stage to set the vibe and energy of the night. When I played some EDM towards the end of the night, we had Carly and Harry up on the stage with their friends jumping and cheering for them. We made Carly & Harry the stars of the night.

Overall, this was an absolutely fun wedding and Carly & Harry had an amazing time. Thank you for having me as your DJ!

Colony House Wedding for Dean & Josephine!

In this video, I capture some fun highlights from Dean and Josephine's wedding at the Colony House in Anaheim! I wish I had more time to record myself, but I was busy working! Let me know what else you would like me to cover in future videos! Enjoy!

We held their wedding ceremony inside using the venue's speaker setup! Afterward, people enjoyed the cocktail hour at the patio and upstairs area while we transformed the space for the dinner reception. For the reception, we hyped up the bridal party for the grand entrance, led the night's formalities, enjoyed the food, and danced the night away!

I love their music selection as some songs were remixes and covers from today's popular hits. At the venue, we even used their built-in dance floor lights! They recently added some controls for the lights so with a touch of a button, the DJ can set the mood for the evening when it's time to dance.

This was a fun wedding with their family and friends!

Thanks, Jo and Dean, for having me!

There are many factors to consider when choosing a venue to host your event. As a DJ, my goal is to entertain your guests, make sure the event runs smoothly, make my clients happy, and pack the dance floor! It is important to become familiar with the venue space and know any challenges one may face to make it an ideal night.

Everyone will have their own reasons to what makes a venue an ideal place to work or to host an event. From my perspective as a DJ, and after working here 3 times, here are my 5 reasons why the Hummingbird Nest Ranch is great!

1. It has a beautiful, warm, romantic, luxurious personality

2. DJ & bar are near the dance floor!

3. There are options to where you can host your event.

4. You can have a late party! Great for party people!

5. Easy load-in for vendors!

Hope this information is helpful for everyone involved in the event industry to understand what's important to vendors and to help make the client's event a success. By knowing what's important, we can understand and help each other as a team.
