On Sunday, September 4th of 2011, I had the opportunity to DJ the wedding of Scott and Jaime. The wedding reception was held at the beautiful Northampton Valley Country Club, located in Richboro, Pennsylvania, a venue I have worked at many times over my sixteen year DJ career, and one of my favorites. I also had the opportunity to work with Artistic Imagery yet again at this wedding, where Nick and the entire crew do an excellent job, and were kind enough to provide some of the images from the wedding for our blog.
The groom and I first met when I was about twelve years old when we attended the same middle and high schools, and playing baseball and soccer together. Even after graduating, we were able to stay in touch. Upon proposing to Jaime, I was the first and only DJ they called. Getting to know my clients is one of the most important parts of my job, and when I already know the client, well, it makes my job a whole lot easier. Even though I already knew the groom, we still had our wrap up meeting and spent a lot of time – weeks and months – prior to the wedding, going over all of the fine details.
The day finally arrived and, like always I was pumped up to rock this party out, but first we had to get through the ceremony. The bride and groom asked me to provide a microphone and all of the music for the ceremony. Since the ceremony was outside and the guest count was over one hundred and fifty, it was a good idea to have a microphone to guarantee everyone – particularly the people sitting in the back row – would hear every vow. Once the ceremony ended, cocktail hour began and again I provided the soundtrack. I covered all eras of music during cocktail from Frank Sinatra to John Mayer, satisfying all ages. When cocktail hour concluded, like most weddings, we started out with our introductions followed by the bride and groom’s first dance. After a few toasts, dinner began and as always, the staff of the Northampton Country Club did an outstanding job of accommodating all guests and providing an excellent dinner. Once everyone was done, we got the party going. Both myself and DJ Jake worked hard to read the crowd, and kept the music going back to back and beat to beat. Since this was a Jewish Wedding, one of the highlights of the night was the Hora, which had everyone out of their seats and on to the dance floor. This was a great crowd and a fun wedding to DJ.
Thank you Scott and Jaime! From myself and the entire staff at Cutting Edge Entertainment, we wish you all the best in the start of your lives together as husband and wife.
