I am very grateful to get the opportunity to work with so many awesome people – weekend after weekend – just like Valerie and Bill, the bride and groom from this wedding. Valerie and Bill were laid back and their primary concern was with making sure that their friends and family had a great time at their wedding reception. At our wrap up meeting just prior the wedding, we spent a lot of time going over the music for dinner, and dancing. We sat together for a while just listening to music and looking for the perfect grand entrance, cake cutting, and parent dance songs. The best part of my job is getting to know my clients and share in their excitement for their big day, and sitting down with them face to face really gives my the chance to do just that.
This was a great crowd to DJ for, as the dance floor was packed full as soon as dinner ended. I usually start my first dance set with music geared to older guests, and play some oldies, Motown, Disco, and Funk, then later on in the night I segue into the current hits. The reason I do it this way is because older guests are the ones that tend to leave earlier in the night, and I have found that younger people – for the most part – will dance to music from older generations, while many older guests are hesitant to dance to popular music of today. As the Wedding DJ, it is my job to play music and get guests of all generations out there during the course of the reception. Valerie and Bill were dancing most of the night, and their family and friends were right out there with them.
This wedding is the first blog post I’ve had the opportunity to write from a reception I did at the Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, in historic Bucks County Pennsylvania. I have worked at this venue before and I am excited to finally feature it on this post. I also had a great time working with Casual Candids Photography. I want to thank them for letting me feature the images from the wedding on our blog. Most importantly, I want to thank Valerie and Bill for choosing me as their Wedding DJ and allowing me to rock their wedding.
A few weeks after the wedding the bride and groom were nice enough to post the following testimonial on Wedding Wire:
Richie was our DJ for our November 10th wedding at the Michener Art Museum, and we are not only thrilled by how amazing he was, but we are still, a month later, hearing praise from wedding guests about how perfect he was for our event! People were dancing the whole night away, he knew exactly what to play for our crowd, and he made the wedding not only personal to us, but also the best dance party I will ever have in my entire life! We could not be happier with his services, and I would recommend him to anyone!!
