I'm Lucky, I am used to working with great, professional wedding vendors. People who will do whatever it takes for the Bride and Groom. The difference is rarely more evident than when the events are tested by things beyond anyone's control. I'll start with Jenny Mcniece Flower goddess. The wind was blowing and Cold when we all arrived for set up. She has a way of making flowers look like art that is always "WOW"... Wind does not work for WOW.....She and her staff stayed on site, and held it all together with Amy and her crew from Fancy's events. I usually don't spend this much time talking about other vendors but check this list , Fancy's events-coord, Cameron Ingalls - Photo, Epic / Catering Unlimited, Rich Fergueson - (The Entertainer just being his awesome self), and then add Shutter booth ...wrap it up with The Cakery and then Take all of this and put it at Robert Hall Winery.... and you have the makings of one incredible WOW. As a DJ you want every Bride to have this kind of Day. It started with "The Entertainer" at the Cocktail party. With very little pomp and circumstance he simply amazes people, a definite WOW. The dance floor lasted till the very last second under the stars of the Amphitheater. A huge Gobo pattern of light showed their Initials & first names on the dance floor where we placed it give it the theatrical look Brides love these days. Romantic? yes, Class in every detail? yes, Happy B&G ......YES .............WOW!

Holland Ranch,..... Paradise ...., that's what you have to call it. Beautiful hills all around, A lone white horse grazed in the pasture beyond what looked like a movie set of Horse stables surrounded by green grass in the acres of land rolling out below us. The pond of all ponds just asking for a fishing pole and some swim time. Now put a permanent arch looking over the surrounding vista and add a Bride and Groom with 125 +- guests. A very sunny day, with a cool breeze off of the ocean. The style was a very modern, "very class" country vibe. The guests were very fun and rolled with us as we spun Country, Rock, Top 40 and old-school party music. The food was great as PACIFIC HARVEST Catering rocked our second event in a row with them. (their gourmet mac & cheese ohhhhhh-yeeaaaaa.) The Cake was RED VELVET and Carrot from CHRISTINES CAKES. Jamie from Holland Ranch coordinated the whole thing perfectly, The photographers CHRISTIAN PERRERA and crew were just the perfect match for the event ,very easy to work with and an amazing product. I'll say it again, when plans don't go the way you expect, the smile on your face is more important than ever. This Bride was special and when you heard Her new husband talk about her you just new, he gets it. I felt like I was watching the start of a great story, and to say the least a great marriage.

A rainy day, one of the coolest Brides ever and a party which even surprised us. We began the day with a clothes malfunction (ripped the seam out of my pants) but after a quick trip by My Wife Shannon and a lot of jokes .... the event was awesome. The ceremony was warm and happy with tears and a couple who clearly loved each other. Then we began the reception with 100 or so guests and lots of surprises to come. The toast was part hilarious speech and part emotional roller coaster but it was all good. The dancing started with a full dance floor and stayed that way until the end of the night. We really appreciated the positive comments and hugs at the end of the event and went home just feeling awesome. It needs to be said that this Bride could have fallen apart with bad weather and some bumps along the way, but she was all smiles and just as fun and happy as she could be. Take a note future Brides, you can only do so much, then you relax say "I DO" and trust the vendors you hire to make it work. This was a great night for a great couple. Pacific Harvest did a great job on the food and catering, the Pics were done by the very cool Sarah Kathleen Photography. : )
