In August 2011 I had the pleasure of Djing a wedding at Lomas Santa Fe for Danielle and Pierce. We had a great time, and at the end of that wedding the newlyweds assured me that I would be emphatically recommended to their friends. How right she was. Within the next year, Danielle referred me to Emily and Brandon. Meeting Emily and Brandon was a really enjoyable experience (although just trying to arrange a meeting with them was quite the task). They came fully prepared and even gave me a CD full of songs that they liked, which was an excellent way to get an understanding of their musical tastes (hint hint to all you couples who I haven’t met with yet). Three days after our meeting, they booked.

Emily and Brandon had their wedding ceremony in La Jolla Womans Club’s Front Ceremony Garden. This area can be arranged one of two ways, with the ceremony in front of a European style fountain, or an old English oak tree. They chose the latter. It actually sprinkled a bit on their wedding day, but a little bit of water wasn’t going to stop this couple from using their planned ceremony location!

La Jolla Womans Club DJ
The Clubhouse inside La Jolla Womans Club has a built-in stage which I shared with their large head table. It was quite a cozy setup, to say the least. I set speakers up on each side of the stage to provide proper coverage to the entire room.
After their Grand Entrance, we went directly into Emily and Brandon’s First Dance.

Wedding Dancing I
Once we started dancing, we didn’t stop for anything! As you can see, this was a daytime wedding with a lot of dancing going on!
After such a great afternoon I made sure to get my signature photo with my happy clients.
No review of my services yet, but I’ll be sure to post one here if it happens.
