Cocktail hour was held on the Outdoor Terrace. To provide sound outside for this, I used my wireless speaker system.
For larger weddings such as Will and Yu Xie’s, dancing is typically held in the Living Room. I set up my equipment on the far side of the dance floor, clean and professional as always.
Dinner was held in the Sunset Room, which is where we also did the Grand Entrance and toasts.
Immediately after the Grand Entrance, we went into dinner, then toasts.
Will and Yu Xie then gave a short speech and thanked their family and guests.
When toasts were completed, I invited all guests to move into the Living Room and began their first dance.

After formal dances were over, we opened the dance floor up for everyone!
After a bit of dancing we took a break for some more formal activities.
Wedding Dancing Part II
For their Grand Exit, I instructed all guests to move downstairs to the entrance, and we did a big send-off as they got into an antique car and left their event.
Before they left the party, I made sure to get my signature post-reception photo with the newlyweds.
Congratulations to Will and Yu Xie and their families, and thanks for choosing The Creative Music DJ for your special day!
I also managed to get a photo with Will, Yu Xie, and Alicia Thorne. Alicia was a pleasure to work with, and at the time of this blog we’ve got another (destination!) wedding planned together. I’m sure it will be incredible also.
