Rain No Damper For Bridal Veil Lakes Wedding

 
Mackenzy and Chase’s Bridal Veil Lakes wedding and reception was held on a wet Saturday, September 18, 2021.
 
With no real rain since May, we certainly needed it. Although it felt like we were getting it all back at once with several major downpours throughout the day, but that wouldn’t stop this celebration.

With every square inch of covered space needed for the reception, the dancing area was moved to the wooden pavillion while guests sat for dinner on the covered patio a short distance away.
 
For cocktails and dinner, the newlyweds requested current popular alternative songs heard on local radio station 94.7 FM. This included selections from Imagine Dragons, Twenty One Pilots, Tame Impala and more.

  • First Dance: Karen O & Ezra Koenig – The Moon Song

With the rain falling and minimal covered space, dancing was off and on throughout the evening, but we really got it going at times with crowd pleasers ‘Cupid Shuffle’ and ‘Uptown Funk’ along with bride and groom requests for The Weeknd and Dua Lipa.

Ponzi Vineyards Wedding Sherwood Oregon

 
It was a perfect late summer day for April and James’ Ponzi Vineyards wedding on Monday, September 6, 2021. Under sunny skies and a comfortable high of 81 degrees, the ceremony was held outside on the lawn overlooking the vineyard.

  • Bride Entrance: Elvis Presley – Can’t Help Falling in Love
  • Bride/Groom Exit: Barry Louis Polisar- All I Want Is You

Following the ceremony, guests gathered inside or on the patio outside for wine and conversation. Background music during the cocktail hour was all Michael Jackson hits, primarily from his early solo catalog (1980-88), as requested by the bride and groom. During this time an artist (Aimee Joy Art) painted the scene from the ceremony earlier. For dinner in the adjoining The Laurelwood room, I played a variety of soft rock hits from artists such as Jack Johnson, Otis Redding, Nora Jones and more.

  • Bride and Father Dance: Tom Petty – Wildflowers
  • Groom and Mother Dance: Don Ho And The Aliis – Tiny Bubbles
  • Last Dance: Rick Astley – Never Gonna Give You Up

It may have been a Monday night with only 20 guests in attendance but judging by the dance floor, it certainly didn’t feel like it. Guests were in the mood for dancing, especially after the sun set. The newlyweds love 90’s Hip Hop and a set that featured hits from MC Hammer, Vanilla Ice, Will Smith, Tag Team and more were well-received.

St Josef Winery Wedding Canby Oregon

 
I had the opportunity to be the DJ at Monica and Matt’s wedding and reception on Sunday, September 5, 2021 at St Josef Winery in Canby, Oregon. Their wedding was originally scheduled for September 2020, but with the pandemic they chose to postpone. Monica and Matt actually booked with me in February 2020 so a lot of time had passed, but we were all thankful this was able to happen now.
 
I provided two sound systems for this wedding, with my main system set-up for the reception just outside the entrance to the winery tasting room overlooking the large cobblestone courtyard with fountain. For the ceremony, I setup a second sound system in the amphitheatre next to Jo-Lilli Pond.

Following the ceremony, the 80+ guests in attendance walked to the reception area for cocktails and eventually dinner while the bride and groom had additional photos taken with family.

St Josef Winery Wedding Reception Highlights:

  • Grand Entrance: Kygo & Whitney Houston – Higher Love
  • Cake Cutting: Hall & Oates – You Make My Dreams Come True
  • First Dance: Ray LaMontagne – I Was Born to Love You
  • Bride and Father Dance: Honorio Flores – Hoy Se Casa Mi Nina

  • Anniversary Dance: Al Green – Let’s Stay Together
  • Bouquet Toss: Destiny’s Child – Jumpin, Jumpin
  • Last Dance: Semisonic – Closing Time

The anniversary dance brought out all of the married couples and after narrowing it down, we learned that Linda and Ed had been married the longest at 61 years. As the sun set, I then spun the first fast dance, the bride and groom’s request for ‘September’ from Earth, Wind & Fire and that packed the floor for that selection and many more to come from the Bee Gees, Walk The Moon, Whitney Houston and more.

This group loves to sing and it didn’t take them long to fill the performance list. The ever-popular “Pour Some Sugar On Me” really got things going and other crowd favorites like “Shout, “Dancing Queen” and “Don’t Stop Believing” made this a night to remember.
