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!

Best Wedding Songs for 2019

Best Wedding Songs.jpg

Music sets the overall mood for your wedding - from ceremony and speeches to getting the party started.

In choosing a wedding song, most, if not all, couples want to pick something that reflects them as a couple.

Here, Easy Weddings surveyed 4100+ couples in their Annual Wedding Industry Report.

Which songs have made it on the top 10 list?

Here’s a clue:

"Romantic ballads are up there with the most popular wedding songs, with every song on this list keeping the tempo slow and steady. Solo artists are also more popular than bands."

If you are getting married this year, you might want to add these songs to your wedding playlist.

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!

Wedding of Madhvi & Daniel

On December 31, 2016, I had the double honor to DJ the wedding of Madhvi & Daniel and host the New Year's Eve celebration for 220 people! It was an amazing time at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City as we kicked off 2017 with bursts of fun! Also, after midnight, there was a surprise appearance of some Star Wars Stormtroopers who came in, performed a dance routine, and continued to party with all the guests. The whole evening was a huge success as I was able to mix music for the Persian, Indian, and American crowd and get them up dancing. Congrats Madhvi and Daniel and to everyone a Happy New Year!

Wedding of Ritu & Matt

On April 2, 2016,
I had a fun time DJing Matt & Ritu's wedding at the Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, CA! Their wedding took place at The Redwood Room, 1 of the 4 beautiful venues at the ranch. There were about 300 guests that evening and it was so great to see so many people excited to be there and celebrate their wedding! I mixed a variety of styles that night such as indie, rock, 80s, 90s, hip hop, house, and even Bollywood music! Everyone was dancing throughout the night and had a blast. I'm happy I was able to play a huge role in Matt & Ritu's wedding, and this video captures the highlights from it. Enjoy!

Wedding of Merijoyce & Hans

On March 14, 2016, I had an amazing opportunity to travel to Maui, Hawaii to DJ my first destination wedding! It was the wedding of my friends, Merijoyce & Hans. The wedding was held at Sugar Beach Events which was perfect since it was right next to the beach! The ceremony was beautiful and during the cocktail hour, we were all able to watch the sunset from where we were. During the reception, there were hula dancers, a singing duet performance, a viral surprise during the garter toss, and dancing all night long! Overall, the wedding turned out to be a fun and memorable night with friends, family & loved ones, and I had a great honor to celebrate and play a huge role in their wedding as their DJ. Thank you, Hans & Merijoyce, and congratulations to the both of you!

Also, special thanks to KCK Entertainment who provided the light and sound at the venue!

The video below is just one of the few videos that I'll be posting which covers my trip to Hawaii. Stay tuned for my upcoming vlogs which will cover my adventures & travels during my stay in Hawaii. Enjoy!
