Rain Stays Away For Cornelius Oregon Wedding

 
It has been said that rain on your wedding day brings good luck. It was pouring when I arrived for setup for Megan and Travis’ Cornelius Oregon wedding on Sunday, September 15, 2019. However, a short time later it dried out and stayed that way the rest of the afternoon and evening at Unger Farms store.

Cornelius Oregon Wedding Ceremony Highlights:

  • Wedding Party Entrance: Kina Grannis – Can’t Help Falling In Love (Piano Version)
  • Bride Entrance: Pachelbel – Canon in D (Best Piano Version)
  • Bride/Groom Exit: Florida Georgia Line – Simple

Following the ceremony, guests walked down the grass hill to the store below for drinks and appetizers inside or they could hang out on the deck with view of the water. For this, I setup a separate speaker with background music that included a variety of classic hits and country favorites from artists such as George Strait, Adele, The Beatles and more. I played the same background set from my main system used for the ceremony so music could be heard nearly everywhere on the property.

  • Grand Entrance: Sugarland – Stuck Like Glue
  • Cake Cutting: Ben E King – Stand By Me
  • First Dance: Brad Paisley – Then

With the rain holding off and a reasonable temperature, it turned out to be a pleasant evening and guests hit the grass dance floor right away and kept going strong for the next two hours. They danced to everything from “Stayin’ Alive” and “Footloose” to “Uptown Funk” and Country hits, “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” and recent smash “Git Up…” plus the only request I received from the bride for Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me).”

Dassi’s Bat Mitzvah Party At Treasury Ballroom

 
Dassi’s memorable Bat Mitzvah party took place at the Historic Treasury Ballroom in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, September 14, 2019. I was also the DJ for her sister, Taliana’s Bat Mitzvah in October, 2013.
 
Just like six years before, there was a lot on the itinerary for this event, including games, Havdalah, the chair raising dance to “Hava Nagilah,” Candle Lighting ceremony and Flash Mob dance.

Guests began arriving around 7pm and about 20 minutes later, the kids had a great time playing games, including “Would You Rather?” where beforehand I had Dassi answer some questions… the same questions I asked her sister in 2013, such as “Would you rather live without music or live without the Internet?” or “would you rather always have to say everything on your mind or never speak again?” Her friends on the dance floor had to pick a side of the floor for which answer they thought she chose and we did this until there was one friend left who knew her best 🙂
 
Following the Candle Lighting ceremony, cake cutting and video presentation, Dassi and some of her friends surprised the guests with a Flash Mob dance to “The Greatest Show” from the musical “The Greatest Showman.”

Not surprisingly, there was a lot of energy in the room following the flash mob and the dance floor was hoppin’ all evening to hot hits “Cupid Shuffle” and “Uptown Funk,” plus favorites of the Bat Mitzvah girl, Jonas Brothers, Katy Perry and YouTube tween sensation, JoJo Siwa.

Late Night Bat Mitzvah Party At MJCC Portland

 
Hannah’s late night Bat Mitzvah Party ended at midnight on Saturday, August 31, 2019 at Mittleman Jewish Community Center in Portland. We also DJ’d brother Daniel’s Bar Mitzvah in 2017 also held at MJCC.
 
The ceremony took place in the same room as the celebration and guests gathered in the lobby afterwards while the room was turned. It was a short window, but I had my sound and lights setup quickly and about 25 minutes later, the kids came inside for games with me that featured “Name That Tune,” two rounds of a rockus scavenger hunt and Coke and Pepsi.
 
Next, Hannah introduced and talked about her family and friends during the candle lighting ceremony and then ‘The Hora’ got everyone out of their chairs immediately to begin a fun night on the dance floor.
