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.

I played a little bit of everything from the classics like “Twist & Shout” and “Dancing Queen” to more recent hit songs such as “Happy” and “Cupid Shuffle”, plus guest requests for “Man! I Feel Like A Woman” and “Gasolina”, the latter led to an impromtu limbo.
