Griffin House Wedding Hood River Oregon

Gemma and Jess’ wedding and reception was held at Griffin House in Hood River, Oregon on Friday, September 2, 2022.
This was my first time as DJ at this venue, a beautiful spot overlooking the majestic Columbia River Gorge with the ceremony lawn providing the best view to exchange vows.

  • Jess Entrance: The Nationals – I Need My Girl
  • Bridal Party Entrance: Rufus du Sol – Next to Me
  • Gemma Entrance: LCD Soundsystem – Oh Baby
  • Newlyweds Exit: Sonny & Cher – I Got You Babe

With the wedding, cocktail hour and dinner/dancing in three separate areas, three sound systems were required to make everything go as smoothly as possible. This included a lapel microphone for the ceremony officiant and handheld cordless microphones for the vows and toasts.
Guests gathered on the Welcome Terrace for cocktails and a welcome toast from the newlyweds before moving to the lawn + tent for dinner and dancing.
Background music was provided to me as Spotify playlists by Gemma and Jess and included a wide variety of selections from Death Cab for Cutie, Beyonce, AC/DC and more.

Griffin House Wedding Reception Highlights:

  • Grand Entrance: Alvvays – Archie, Marry Me
  • First Dance: Kacey Musgraves – Oh, What a World
  • Gemma and Father Dance: Ella Fitzgerald – Cheek To Cheek

This was a fun group and the celebration really took off after the newlyweds returned from their sunset photos and glow sticks were handed out.
The dance floor was packed for nearly two hours with an amazing energy. I played everything from “One More Time” and “Love Shack” to requests for Madonna, Lady Gaga, “Disco Inferno” and more.
