I am very grateful to get the opportunity to work with so many awesome people – weekend after weekend – just like Nicole and Mark, the bride and groom from this wedding. Nicole and Mark 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. Nicole and Mark were dancing most of the night, and their family and friends were right out there with them.
I also had a great time working with the Photographer Michelle of Michelle Lynn Weddings. I want to thank them for letting me feature the images from the wedding on our blog. Most importantly, I want to thank Nicole and Mark for choosing me as their Wedding DJ and allowing me to rock their wedding.

DJ Richie and his Cutting Edge team went above and beyond for my wedding. At our backyard farm wedding the dance floor was never empty! My husband and I asked for Soca music when we had our first meeting with Richie. Richie wasn’t too familiar with the genre, but he acclimated himself well! My husband and I along with our family and friends love dancing to the beat of island music and we just knew we needed it incorporated into our wedding day. Richie made sure to play our favorite tunes and there was never a dull moment! We asked Richie to stay later than initially agreed upon and he happily did, keeping our dance floor thriving and the music bumping. The photo booth was a ton of fun and the staff were also amazing with assisting our guests and making sure people got in to take some fun pictures. All in all Richie and the cutting edge team helped make our wedding a successful fun time!!!
