To Do or Don’t? Song Requests on RSVP

There's been a trend of couples asking their guest to send in a song request along with their RSVPs. Is this helpful? Should you do it? With a little planning, the song request (suggestion) thing can be a great idea. It would be wise to put a disclaimer on the invitation card that their song might not make the list, but that they are helping to create one. Say you have 120 guests with 120 different selections, and they expect to hear their songs for 3 minutes. That would be a program of 360 minutes or … Continue Reading ››

Dove Canyon Country Club Wedding – Dove Canyon, CA [HD VIDEO]

This is a video on a well produced Latino wedding reception I did at the Dove Canyon Country Club in Dove Canyon (adjacent to Coto de Caza / Rancho San Margarita) neighborhood in Orange County, CA

Once the sun went down, the room was perfect! … Continue Reading ››

Yorba Linda Community Center Wedding – Yorba Linda, CA [HD VIDEO]

This is a video from a wedding I DJed at the Yorba Linda Community Center with uplights and wireless satellite speakers (6 total).

The bride and groom were very down to earth, and very community oriented. They had most of their decorations made by family members who apparently have quite a bit of experience in theatrical work (always nice to have resources like that!) but they were clear from the get-go that having a wild dance party was their most important desire for the reception. I'm glad that they showed their satisfaction … Continue Reading ››

Tustin Ranch Golf Club Wedding – Tustin, CA [HD VIDEO]

Super short video on a Reception I DJed at the Tustin Ranch Golf Club, Clubhouse, with uplighting and Cake Spotlighting (Pinspots on this one) services, both look great at this location. It was a very relaxed atmosphere, and the crowd really went for the country line dancing, which is always fun!

This is my company's hometown, Tustin, CA, but I don't find myself there as often as I would like to. The staff is always courteous and helpful there, and the logistics of the location is pretty short and simple. Also, cocktail … Continue Reading ››

Newland Barn Wedding DJ [HD VIDEO]

Short video from a wedding I DJed at Newland Barn / Newland House Museum, in Huntington Beach, Surf City USA. It's a super relaxed private yard with an indoor section inside a bar like structure.

It's a great location that gets tons of sun, and also has a small indoor area to put your buffet in, or in this case, the dance floor. This particular client decided to pipe and drape the room, and had me provide back uplighting in blue, which was incredibly effective (smaller rooms are easier to saturate). They … Continue Reading ››
