November Rain At Empress Estate Wedding

 
Katie and Chase were married at the historical Empress Estate in Woodland, Washington on Sunday, November 20, 2016. It was a wet late November day and with the ceremony and most of the reception held in a tent adjacent to the main entrance of the main building, we were reminded throughout as the rain fell (hard at times) off and on outside.
 
Ceremony Highlights:

  • Bridal Party Entrance: Amy Hite – Prelude from Cello Suite No. 1, BWV 1007
  • Bride Entrance: Vitamin String Quartet – Yellow
  • Bride/Groom Exit: Chad Brock – Yes!

Following the wedding, all guests were directed inside for cocktails and appetizers as the tent area was turned for the reception, including dinner. The newlyweds requested all Country music for their big day. During dinner I played a mix of background music that featured artists such as Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw and more.
 
Reception Highlights:

  • Grand Entrance: Etta James – At Last
  • Cake Cutting: Billy Currington – Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right
  • Boquet Toss: Little Big Town – Little White Church
  • Garter Toss: Toby Keith – A Little Less Talk And A Lot More Action

The traditional reception events took place inside the main entrance of the estate. The bride and groom wanted their guests standing along the stairwell on each side of the cake table below… this made for a great photo. With no amplification inside, I projected my voice the best I could to coordinate the bouquet and garter toss and it seemed to go perfectly.
 
At the end of the evening, it was a sparkler sendoff as Katie and Chase made their exit out the front doors of the Empress Estate to their waiting guests. Congratulations to you both and thank you for choosing PRO DJs.

Corporate Karaoke Party At Grand Central Bowl

 
PRO DJs had the opportunity to perform at the La Crosse Footwear corporate karaoke party held at Grand Central Bowling Lounge in Portland, Oregon on Friday, November 4, 2016.
 
With bowling, games, photo booth and raffle, their was a lot of competition for attention, but following dinner, many guests found me setup in a side room adjacent to the bar and couldn’t wait to belt out their favorites.

After Chris got us started with Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and Chelsea performed Maroon 5’s ‘Sunday Morning’, we were off to strong start. Before the big raffle, Dave sang Ray Charles ‘Georgia On My Mind’ and John Mellencamp’s ‘Hurt So Good’. Ryan did Prince ‘I Would Die 4 U’ and Eric really fired up the group with Bon Jovi’s ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’.
 
Following the raffle, we had about 30 minutes of time left, and I was able to pack in performances from Joe doing Tom Petty’s ‘American Girl’, Lauren singing the Backstreet Boys ‘Everybody (Backstreets’s Back), Deanna and Molly performing ‘Lady Marmalade’ as done by Christina Aguilera w/Lil’ Kim, Mya & Pink, and Chris wrapped up a wild night with Salt N’ Pepa’s ‘Push it.’

Oregon Wedding DJ At Gray Gables Estate

 
Oregon Wedding DJ Rich Ellis had the opportunity to perform at Krystin and Joel’s wedding and reception on Sunday, October 2, 2016 at Gray Gables Estate in Milwaukie, Oregon.
 
Rain fell most of the day, but cleared up in time for the 6pm ceremony held outside near the Koi Pond where I setup a second sound system.

Oregon Wedding DJ Ceremony Highlights:

  • Wedding Party Entrance: Beatles – Here Comes the Sun
  • Bride Entrance: Ben E. King – Stand By Me
  • Bride/Groom Exit: Ray LaMontagne – You Are the Best Thing

The original plan was to also hold the reception outside in the Large Garden, but with the threat of an occasional shower, the newlyweds decided to move the celebration inside. Krystin and Joel were very involved in the music selection. In fact, they chose all songs played during cocktails and dinner… an eclectic mix that included music from Van Morrison, Lincoln Durham, Ella Fitzgerald, Alabama Shakes and more.
 
Oregon Wedding DJ Reception Highlights:

  • Grand Entrance: Mumford and Sons – I Will Wait
  • Cake Cutting: Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong – Our Love Is Here To Stay
  • First Dance: White Buffalo – Love Song #1
  • Bride and Father Dance: Fleetwood Mac – Landslide (Live, “This is for you, daddy” said at start)
  • Groom and Mother Dance: Tom Petty – Wildflowers
  • Last Dance: Billy Idol – White Wedding

Following the formal dances, I opened the dance floor to all guests with ‘At Last’ from Etta James.  It was a great turnout.

Exciting Night At Boring Backyard Wedding

 
As the calendar flipped to October, the temperature dropped and rain fell off and on outside, but nothing could dampen the love and joy inside the tent at Lora and Leslie’s Boring backyard wedding and reception held on Saturday, October, 1 2016.
 
There were lots of nerves leading up to the ceremony, but those nerves were channeled to positive energy that set the tone for a fun and exciting night to follow.

From the classic hits, such as ‘Respect,’ and ‘Billie Jean’ to recent favorites, ‘Shut Up and Dance’ and ‘Uptown Funk,’ this very large dance floor was filled to capcity most of the evening. 98 percent of songs chosen were uptempo. Once slow dance though was played in the tradition of the 80th minute at Portland Thorns games, ‘Keep On Lovin’ You’ from REO Speedwagon.
