Well, I promised you something completely different. Imagine this, a guest count around 125 which included people from all over the world. Argentina, Mexico, Sweden, & Peru just to name a few. The Bride and groom (the whole group for that matter) were so good looking it was almost intimidating. Now stage this at the Romantic Castle setting of Eagle Castle Winery, add in a great coordinator (Roxan) and let them go until 2AM. The rain came and went, but everything was perfect for the ceremony. The cocktail hour went smoothly and once the dancing began, it was a huge mix of American top-40, cumbia, banda, salsa, spanish rock, Argentinian cumbia, and did I mention the Bi-lingual DJ who was paid to be there with me had No-showed? This may seem like a recipe for disaster but here's the kicker, it went amazing. I consulted by phone with a good friend "DJ Javier Montez" and he helped me focus on the correct way to set up the music. Needless to say, it worked, tons of dancing and screaming and yelling and drinking...lol They used an area of the Castle (the main foyer) as a nightclub and it was amazing. I haven't been this challenged by a music format ever, I'm really proud of how it went, The Bride and Groom sent a Thank You the very next day. If you want to know what it is that makes a DJ love what he does even after thousands of events, this is it. I'll never forget this one.....

April 16th, a great day for a Wedding on the cliff overlooking Shell Beach. Steven and Desiree are young, hilarious and wanted the incredible diversity in their Family to come through on their Big Day. They decided to book the amazing Ventana Grill event room (and The DJ ...lol) for an extra hour. I have to say, great personalities aside.. this was a Dance party! Loved the space, loved the B&G and had a great time..... :)
