Cutting Edge Entertainment provided Wedding DJ services more weddings in 2011 than ever before. A big part of that is certainly due to the relationships we have with wedding venues, and one place we have a great partnership with is the Loews Hotel Philadelphia. On October 22nd I once again had another opportunity to DJ an awesome wedding at The Loews Philadelphia.
The wedding couple – Gabi and Dean – found Cutting Edge Entertainment through the staff of the Loews Hotel. I met with them months before their wedding, when they decided on having me as their Wedding DJ. In my opinion, getting to know the couple before the wedding is as important as the wedding itself. Not just to go over music and a timeline with the couple, but also to build a rapport and have the bride and groom be comfortable with me as their Wedding DJ. I feel the better they know me, and the more trust I earn, the better they will be able to relax the day of the wedding and just trust in the DJ.
This was an especially fun wedding to DJ. Gabi, Dean, their family and friends were a crazy (‘crazy’ in a good way), party crowd. In fact, I witnessed my first ever ‘Family Pyramid’ (see the photo below). The crowd was up and dancing to everything from Motown, to Funk, to today’s Top 40 dance music. After my last song of the night I was swarmed by guests chanting “One More Song, One More Song”, and with permission from the staff at the Loews Hotel, I happily complied. I also had the chance to work with Shea from Roggio Wedding Photography. He did an awesome job and his images came out looking outstanding. He is a top notch photographer and I look forward to working with him soon in the future.
Like every wedding blog post I write, I can not finish before thanking the bride and groom. Gabi and Dean you’re an awesome couple and it was confirmed to me by meeting all their friends and family that were there to celebrate.
