Karaoke Wedding McMenamins Edgefield

 
Jenn and Zach’s karaoke wedding was held Saturday, November 17, 2018 at McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon. Both ceremony and reception were in Blackberry Hall.
 
When I arrived for setup, the normal spot for the DJ near the dance floor had two skirted tables that appeared to be dinner seating for guests. Fortunately, one was my table, but the other was for the photographer. With a full karaoke setup, I was concerned about having enough space for everything, but the venue staff was able to move the photographer table, and even though placement of the speakers was still a challenge, I think I made it work.

Jenn and Zach noted this would be a brunch wedding so they would have guests begin arriving at 11:30am with the ceremony scheduled to begin at 12:30pm. Background music during this time was a mix of requests the newlyweds solicited from everyone ahead of time, and as expected, featured a wide variety of artists from Frank Sinatra and Beyonce to Brad Paisley and Night Ranger. The father of the groom was the officiant.

  • Bride Entrance: Canon In D
  • Bride & Groom Exit: Radiohead – Fake Plastic Trees

After the ceremony, there was no room turnover so guests could remain at their tables or walk around. Zach and Jenn posed for additional photos outside before returning for their grand entrance, first dance, and dances with their parents before the buffet was opened for brunch.
 
Karaoke Wedding Reception Highlights:

  • Grand Entrance: Sugar Ray – Fly
  • First Dance: Chris Stapleton – Tennessee Whiskey
  • Bride and Father Dance: The Hound + The Fox – Baby Mine
  • Groom and Mother Dance: Lee Ann Womack – I Hope You Dance
  • Cake Cutting: Billy Joel – The Longest Time

Jenn and Zach are very artistic and that was evident in the wedding favors they had made for every guest and vendor… a wooden book with each name engaved and filled with items such as a personal dinner name plate, colored pencils with a custom Jenn and Zach coloring book and a red stocking cap that everyone wore for the group photo taken near the end of brunch.

The karaoke was a big hit, so much so, there was not really any time for dancing. Guests signed up to sing everything from “Man In The Mirror” and “Fat Bottomed Girls” to “Wannabe” and “Uptown Funk”. We finished the afternoon with the newlyweds and wedding party leading everyone in Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

October Wedding Camas Meadows Golf Club

 
Nearly 80 guests attended Elyse and Kelby’s wedding Camas Meadows Golf Club on Saturday, October 13, 2018.
 
The weather was absolutely perfect for this time of year… sunshine and around 70 degrees for the ceremony that began at 3pm in the gazebo on the golf course. With my main sound system set-up for the reception, I used a second mixer and cordless lapel microphone to provide music and sound for the wedding.

Between the cake cutting and first dance, Elyse and Kelby played the shoe game. The wedding anniversary dance opened the dance floor to everyone and featured multiple couples married over 40 years. It was still early when the dancing began, so there was some ebb and flow the first 30 minutes or so, but then the bride and groom joined in and the party was under way.

A good mix of favorites from the past like “Brown Eyed Girl” and “In The Mood” along with recent hit songs “Uptown Funk” and “Happy,” plus a request for “Cupid Shuffle” kept things moving.

Union/Pine Portland Wedding And Reception

 
Hosia and Andy’s Union/Pine Portland wedding and reception was held on Friday, September 7, 2018. This venue features a sunken ballroom that serves primarily as the dance floor. However, in this case, it was also used for the ceremony. With my table located near the main pathway, between the bar and overlooking the ballroom, the setup for a DJ is a little awkward, but everything worked out fine.

Just under 100 guests were in attendance and following the wedding, most gathered near the bar for cocktails before moving to an adjacent room for dinner, where I set-up a wireless speaker for dinner music and the toast. Background music requested by the newlyweds was a mix of 20’s, 30’s, 40’s (big band, crooners, etc.), such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and their personal favorite, Billie Holliday.

Summer Wedding Camas Meadows Golf Club

 
It has been one hot summer in the Pacific Northwest with a record 30 days at 90 degrees or warmer and smoke from nearby wildfires making outdoor events not as pleasant as we normally expect this time of year, but for the last week of August into September, the smoke has cleared and temperatures moderated.
 
The best weather of the year so far landed just in time for Aimee and Zach’s wedding and reception held at Camas Meadows Golf Club on Sunday, September 2, 2018.
 
It was picture perfect and a comfortable 78 degrees for the 50+ guests attending when the ceremony began at 5pm in the gazebo on the golf course. With my main sound system set-up for the reception, I used a second mixer and cordless lapel microphone to provide music and sound for the wedding.

The reception followed immediately in the tent above near the parking lot. As guests walked up the hill, I greeted them with a set of oldies as requested by the newlyweds, including music from the Beatles, Four Tops, Beach Boys and more. Immediate family, the wedding party and bride and groom stayed in the gazebo area for photos.

Around 6:40, I cued up their entrance music and announced Aimee and Zach’s arrival. The dinner buffet was opened right away and for background music, I played a set of classic jazz selections as requested by the groom. Champagne was served for the toast about an hour later.

The money dance got this group going and served as the official opening of the dance floor. From there, the classic oldies were especially popular early on, including “Twist & Shout” and “In The Mood.” There were still a few guests that needed a warm-up, so I managed to squeeze in a slow dance before things got too crazy.

For the final hour, we had a great run on the dance floor with most everyone having a fun time dancing to “Can’t Stop The Feeling,” “Uptown Funk,” the “Cupid Shuffle,” “Footloose” and more. The bride’s grandmother also requested “The Hokey Pokey” which I played right before the final slow dance.
