Wedding Reception

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.

Grand Entrance

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.

Grand Exit

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.

Post-Reception

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!

Additional Photos

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.
