In November 2013 I was the Wedding DJ for Kristin and Tom’s wedding reception. The party was held at the Manor House at Prophecy Creek, in Ambler, Pennsylvania. The first time I met Kristin and Tom was actually a few months prior at an open house, which the Manor House holds regularly. The property is being run by Robert Fair Catering, and they’ve done an extraordinary job renovating the Manor House and beautifying the landscaping, which looks truly breathtaking. I’ve worked with Robert Fair Catering many times at other venues and I am very happy to have such a good working relationship with their whole staff. Terri does a great job working together with her clients to make certain they have an amazing event, while her husband Kerry can be found in the kitchen, putting together the mouth-watering meal. Their entire staff truly does an amazing job accommodating the guests and seeing to every detail.
When the big day finally came, my assistant DJ and I arrived at Prophecy Creek about two hours before the start of the ceremony. We quickly got set up and settled in, before the roughly one hundred and fifty guests arrived. Being prepared is paramount to success. The ceremony was held on the property, and we were happy to provide a microphone for the officiant and the vows. Sometimes, when having your ceremony outside, it is nice to have a microphone to guarantee everything is heard by all attendees. Following the ceremony we provided music for the cocktail hour, but were very conscious of the volume of our music. Of course we want people to hear the music we are playing, but, at the same time, we don’t want people shouting at each other as they are trying to mix and mingle. Once cocktail hour was over, guests headed to their tables underneath the tent, where we introduced the parents, bridal party, and our bride and groom. Once we introduced Kristin and Tom into the room, we had them begin their first dance.
Kristin and Tom are definitely both party animals, and they really wanted all of their guests to have a great time. They picked the right Wedding DJ for the job, because getting (and keeping) people out on the dance floor happens to be my specialty. I played everything from “Shout” by Otis Day and The Knights to “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke, and everyone had a blast. One thing remained the same… It didn’t hurt that this crowd was ready to go as soon as dinner was over, and did not stop until the reception came to a close.
Now, of course, I can’t take all the credit for the success of the party. I worked together with a great staff at Prophecy Creek, who did a great job and were easy to work with. Great food is a key element to a successful party, and the food at Prophecy Creek was outstanding. I also worked alongside Nicole of Nicole Leigh Photography. She took some great pictures from the party. As always she rocked, and I can’t wait to work with her again.
Thank you again to Kristin and Tom for choosing Cutting Edge Entertainment as your Wedding DJ, and wishing you both all the best life has to offer.
