On Friday evening, December 4th of 2015 I had the opportunity once again to MC a wedding at one of my absolute favorite venues, the Cairnwood Mansion in Bryn Athyn, Montgomery County. We have been a part of many wedding celebrations at Cairnwood, and although I have written many other blog posts about wedding receptions at which I have performed as the Wedding DJ there, this wedding ranks among one of my all-time favorites, and for very good reason.
Gina and Patrick – the bride and groom – were out on the dance floor dancing and celebrating nearly the entire night. With the bride and groom on the dance floor and participating in the celebration, it makes my job as a Wedding DJ that much easier. Their energy and joy were contagious, and before I knew it, all of the guests were out there dancing and having a blast! Wedding guests always follow the lead of the bride and groom, and when the bride and groom are at the center of the action, the guests, friends and family members are sure to follow.
My assistant and I had a great time at this reception, however it would not have been as great if not for Bernadette, along with the rest of the terrific staff at Jimmy Duffy Catering. The food was amazing, and put everybody in a great mood. Working together with the caterer and coordinating the time line flawlessly helps to achieve a smooth flow for the reception and make certain all formalities happen how and when the bride and groom choose. The photographer for the night was the very talented Nicole Leigh. Over the past few years I have gotten to know Nicole – an awesome photographer – and someone I consider a good friend.
Shortly after the wedding the bride was nice enough to post the following testimonial on WeddingWire:
I loved Richie with Cutting Edge Entertainment! He was absolutely amazing. I had to do everything from out of town and Richie was beyond accommodating. He kept people on the dance floor, made the day move smoothly and was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. I would highly recommend Richie and Cutting Edge Entertainment to any couple that wants a high energy and fun reception!
This was truly a great wedding, and one of the highlights of my fall wedding schedule for 2015. I thank Gina and Patrick for choosing myself and Cutting Edge as the DJ entertainment for your reception, and I look forward to keeping in touch with you both. Wishing you all the best that your future as husband and wife has to offer.
