Summer 2014 is here, but before 2013 is forgotten, I wanted to post a blog about a November Wedding I had the opportunity to DJ at the Aldie Mansion in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Brianne and William – the bride and groom – first contacted us after checking out our reviews online. Although looking at reviews online is nice, we recommend to all of our clients that they meet us in person before they make a final decision. Cutting Edge wedding clients have the option of locking in their personnel for no additional fee. It makes sense to us, that if you meet a DJ or see an individual perform at another event, you can lock in that specific Wedding DJ for no additional charge. There is no guessing who you will be matched up with for your wedding, instead, the name of that DJ is on the contract.
I have worked many times in the past at Aldie Mansion, as you may have seen in previous blog posts. It’s important that the DJ is constantly communicating with the catering staff. The goal; to ensure the party is running smoothly avoiding any unnecessary breaks (down time) in the reception. As the entertainer for the wedding, I want to make sure the crowd is either eating, taking in a traditional formality such as the first dance, cake cutting, etc., or of course, dancing. Since I have worked so many times before at Aldie Mansion, I know the party is going to have a nice flow. Brianne and William’s wedding was just that. We transitioned smoothly from cocktail hour to dinner, and then after dinner we went right into dancing. The dance floor was filled with guests the entire night. I played a variety of music from the 60s all the way up to today’s latest hits.
I’m extremely appreciative to Brianne and William for letting me be a part of their special day, and hope all their guests had a great time. I also am grateful to them for sharing these pictures to feature on our blog. I can’t end this post without also thanking the staff at Aldie Mansion. Kim and Shelly of Jeffrey Miller Catering do a fantastic job running the show. All of their maitre d’s, bartenders, and servers are first class, and I look forward to many more events at this historic and elegant venue.
A few weeks after the wedding Brianne and William were kind enough to post the following testimonial on Wedding Wire:
Richie Abrams of Cutting Edge Entertainment was the DJ for our November 16th wedding at Aldie Mansion and he did an excellent job! From the very first time we met Richie, we knew that he was going to be great to work with and would make our wedding so much fun. Richie is very funny and easy to work with and made us feel like he was truly excited to be DJing our wedding. He was completely on top of the process and helped us plan out the events of our reception, which made us feel very at ease. He played the perfect combination of songs that satisfied all the different generations and had everyone on the dance floor. We are so thrilled that we went with him for our reception and would highly recommend his services to anyone that is planning a wedding!
Wishing all the best to Brianne and William in your future together.
– DJ Richie
