This is one of the events where there is no good reason for it to be awesome but it just was....lol We were put behind schedule due to circumstances after a very nice ceremony in the gardens at the B&B and which would normally be bad but somehow it didn't matter. The guests just rolled with us throughout the day and when we started the dancing..... It went off!!! The flowers for the day were done by our buddy Jessica from "Flowers to you by Jessica" and her crew.... again.... awesome! Now, here's the part I'm most proud of, The crowd was about 50% spanish speaking and 50% percent english. We played, Mainstream hits, hip hop, Club, Banda, Cumbia, Norteno and even spanish rock. It has been some time since I worked with DJ Javier Montes ( He's is an incredible DJ both in English and Spanish) but I value that time like no other, He taught me the basics of how to play for a Spanish speaking crowd and what to look for when I have a crowd like this, We always take pride in respecting the cultural heritage of the families at our events but this was exceptional. Both Families had a blast and I left there smiling myself. Looking Glass Photography captured the whole thing with their very cool style. This event "Went Off" for no good reason....except the vendors who held it all together ....lol
Crazy Fun, that's how I would describe it from start to finish it was an absolute joy. The funny thing about this one was the number of guests in the crowd who had been our clients in past seasons. I felt all warm and gooshy.....lol Still Waters Vineyards was the setting and once again I absolutely love this venue it is, in a word "Beautiful". They chose a modern classical vibe for the ceremony prelude music playing while guests took their seats overlooking the vineyard. I'm including a photo from their day just to give you an idea how cool this really was. April flowers ( as always ) did another wonderful job with the flowers and Steve Udell was our photographer. Steve, Thank You for doing your thing and being so very easy to work with, I really appreciated your style my friend. The music was a mix of Mainstream top 40, Classic Rock and even a little country. The dancing was insane and fun and I enjoyed it as much as they did...lol This bride and Groom were just awesome people, they both have jobs that show how much they care about people and what comes around came back around to them with a wedding anyone would be proud of. I saw April after the day had ended as we were packing up and she had tears in her eyes, She told me with a hug how they were tears of happiness, I know it's corny but dang I loved that.
