“From the beginning, Rich was very communicative and flexible. He had lots of great suggestions when we met with him and during the reception kept everything moving along smoothly even when I was getting a little stressed about the timeline. Rich has a great ability to read the vibe of the room and really kept the dance floor hopping with all ages.” -Brenna Meyer & Bryan Turner

Sleet And Snow Can’t Stop Portland Wedding

 
Waking up to sleet and snow on your wedding day can be a stressful time. Emarsharae and Bakari were scheduled to get married in Beaverton, Oregon on Saturday, January 13, 2024, but with difficult travel conditions, the wedding and reception were moved to Downtown Portland where most guests had accommodations.
 
I received word of the venue change to The Sentinel about an hour before I was planning to leave for setup. With the ceremony now taking place in the Renaissance Room on the third floor and the reception in Jake’s Grill on the ground floor, I grabbed a second sound system before heading out.
 
Portland Wedding Ceremony Highlights:

  • Wedding Party & Bride Entrance: Brooklyn Duo – Yellow
  • Bride/Groom Exit: Leon Bridges – If It Feels Good (Then It Must Be)

Portland Wedding Sentinel (January 13, 2024)
 
For the reception, guests gathered for cocktails and dinner in the Lewis and Clark room adjacent to Jake’s Grill. I setup my main sound system next door in the Hardy room and the speaker from the ceremony was used for announcments and toasting in the dining area.
 
Portland Wedding Reception Highlights:

  • Grand Entrance: Michael Jackson – You Rock My World
  • Cake Cutting: Stevie Wonder – Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours
  • First Dance: Leon Bridges – Coming Home
  • Father/Daughter Dance: John Legend – Always
  • Mother/Son Dance: Alyssa Falcone – My Wish
  • Bouquet Toss: Beyonce’ – Grown Woman
  • Garter Toss: Miguel – Adorn

Following the toast, I invited all guests to the Hardy room for the cake cutting and the newlywed’s first dance. The room was packed and the dance floor filled immediately. Over the next two hours, guests had a great time dancing to mostly classic and current R&B and Hip Hop hits that included Earth, Wind & Fire, Post Malone, Saweetie, Usher and Bad Bunny.

“Cannot say enough great things about having Rich Ellis for our wedding. From the first phone call to the event of our wedding he was consistently professional, easygoing, flexible and overall has a great personality to work with. We cannot make this up: in the middle of the city shutting down because of a snowstorm on our wedding day and having to switch our wedding venue the day of just hours prior, Rich said he would be there and he showed up on time and ready to go despite all the chaos going on. He showed up and gave it 100%, helping so many of our guests and ourselves have an amazing time. The flow of our wedding and reception was so smooth it was like it was planned at the new venue the whole time. He was so flexible and adapted to the situation with no problem. Despite how the day started with the snowstorm, it was the most wonderful and beautiful wedding and reception that we could ask for. To Rich, we loved you so much! We’ll invite you on our next vacation! You were the PERFECT DJ and we’d definitely book and recommend you for other events too. We appreciate all of your help and guidance during the process for the result of having a truly memorable wedding day for so many reasons. Our advice: Get a phenomenal wedding planner and an amazing DJ.” -Emarsharae Anderson & Bakari Samin

The Foundry at Oswego Pointe Wedding

 
As I was setting up a small sound system on the Promenade overlooking the Willamette River at The Foundry at Oswego Pointe about an hour before Jennie and Brandon’s wedding ceremony on Friday, October 13, 2023, it was cloudy but comfortable outside, really nice, but that changed about 15 minutes before and good thing there were plenty of umbrella’s for the guests.

The Foundry at Oswego Pointe Wedding Ceremony Highlights:

  • Wedding Party & Bride Entrance: TTNG – Elk
  • Bride/Groom Exit: Panic! At The Disco – High Hopes

For the reception, guests gathered for cocktails and dinner inside the Great Hall. The venue has a built-in sound system with speakers directly over the dance floor in the center. With guest tables directly in front of my speakers, I did connect my sound system to the house system for background music and dancing, but used my complete sound system for the karaoke that followed.

  • Grand Entrance: Selena – Bidi Bidi Bom Bom
  • Cake Cutting: Adam Sandler – Grow Old With You
  • First Dance: Ritchie Valens – We Belong Together

It was around 7:30pm when the dancing began, so there was some ebb and flow the first 30 minutes or so, but eventually the dance floor began to define a little more and filled for the fun fast songs that included classic hits along with more recent songs, plus Jennie’s requests for Elvis Crespo’s “Suavemente”, Marc Anthony, Lizzo and more.

At 9pm we switched to karaoke and the bride singing Paramore’s “Still Into You” for her new husband. The maid of honor went next and many other guests followed, bringing an energy that made that part of the night feel like an after party. The groom joined for the last song… Blink 182’s “I Miss You”.

After a week of rain, it was an absolutely perfect early Fall day for Makenna and Kadin’s wedding and reception on Saturday, September 30, 2023 in West Linn, Oregon.
 
The ceremony was held outside a Queen Anne Victorian home under a tall tree that provided shade for most everyone. I setup a second sound system to provide music and microphone for the officiant, as well as music during dinner at this same area of the property.
