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.

  • Wedding Party Entrance: Kenny Chesney – Me & You
  • Bride Entrance: Christina Perri – A Thousand Years
  • Sand Ceremony: George Strait – Cross My Heart
  • Bride/Groom Exit: Hunter Hayes – Wanted

Following the ceremony, guests walked up the hill to the tent near the parking lot for the reception. For background music, I played a variety of songs, that featured mostly country artists, such as Tim McGraw, Lady Antebelum and Zac Brown Band, as requested by the newlyweds. Immediate family, the wedding party and bride and groom stayed in the gazebo area for photos.

Wedding Camas Meadows Golf Club Reception Highlights:

  • Grand Entrance: Stevie Wonder – Signed Sealed Delivered…
  • Cake Cutting: Lonestar – Amazed
  • First Dance: Temptations – My Girl
  • Bride and Father Dance: Tim McGraw – My Little Girl
  • Groom and Mother Dance: The Band Perry – Mother Like Mine
  • Wedding Anniversary Dance: Alan Jackson – Remember When
  • Bouquet Toss: Big & Rich – Save A Horse (Ride A Cowboy)
  • Garter Toss: Maroon 5 – Sugar
  • Last Dance: Blake Shelton – God Gave Me You

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.

Waverley Country Club Milwaukie Wedding

 
It was a perfect early fall day for Kristin and Michael’s Waverley Country Club Milwaukie wedding on Monday, September 24, 2018. Under sunny skies and a comfortable high of 75 degrees, the ceremony was held outside on the lawn overlooking the Willamette River.

  • Wedding Party and Bride Entrance: Train – Marry Me
  • Bride/Groom Exit: Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell – Ain’t No Mountain High Enough

Following the ceremony, most guests gathered on a nearby patio outside, but some made their way to the dining area where I had a second sound system setup for the reception. Background music was a variety of soft rock hits from artists such as Stevie Wonder, Coldplay, and bride and groom favorites, Supertramp, The Lumineers, Frank Sinatra and more.

It may have been a Monday night, but judging by the dance floor, it certainly didn’t feel like it. Guests were in the mood for dancing and the floor filled quickly for the opening slow dance and the fun fast songs that followed, including requests for The Contours “Do You Love Me” and “Boogie Wonderland” from Earth, Wind & Fire.

Bat Mitzvah DJ Shakes Up Neighborhood Bash

 
Zoe and her friends had a blast at her celebration party as Bat Mitzvah DJ Rich Ellis shook up the family home in Southwest Portland on Saturday, September 8, 2018.
 
While the adults enjoyed drinks and conversation in the dining room and back deck, the kids were the stars of this one and pretty much had the dance floor in the living room to themselves from the beginning.

There were also other activities, such as a henna tattoo artist in the basement, but Zoe and her friends would return time and again to dance to their favorite songs, plus play some games, including two insane rounds of “Coke & Pepsi” and the limbo.
 
Bat Mitzvah DJ (9-8-18)
 
The familiar beats couldn’t keep the adults away though and they hung in the foyer, watching the kids and dancing to few tracks. Zoe’s mom wasn’t sure if the chair raising would work (her dad was healing from a broken foot), but we found several strong people to carry the chair as everyone danced “The Hora.”
 
Bat Mitzvah DJ (9-8-18)
 
From there, the kids brought the house down for nearly two hours, dancing and getting crazy to current hits “I Like It” from Cardi B and Drake’s “In My Feelings,” plus recent favorites, “Can’t Hold Us,” “Cupid Shuffle,” “Hand Clap” and more.

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.

Union/Pine Portland Wedding Ceremony Highlights:

  • Wedding Party and Bride Entrance: Stringspace – In My Life
  • Bride & Groom Exit: The Cookies – I Never Dreamed

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.

From there, guests had a great time dancing to music from The Beatles, Temptations, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Hosia’s favorite pop girl groups from the 50’s and 60’s. The newlyweds also requested some 90’s hip hop, Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys and recent hits from Justin Timberlake
