A La Jolla Wedding
La Jolla Woman’s Club is an event space that I am on the preferred vendor’s list as a wedding DJ. Auriel runs the event sales and her and I have worked together since she coordinated events at The Garty Pavilion in Mission Bay.
Andrew and Jenna I knew from the San Diego Bar and Club scene. Andrew was a photographer and Jenna did administration and management at multiple places. They reached out to me because I do many industry weddings a year. Most Djs who play bar and clubs don’t like to do weddings. I love them!
Bar and Club Industry Wedding
On this beautiful day as the guests arrived I knew most of them as friends from the industry. When playing for the bar and club industry I am sure to mix the music up from what they are used to hearing at work. I usually stick to standard wedding music because you don’t hear that stuff in the bars and clubs. It sounds weird but most industry staff goes nuts when they hear “Shout” or “Celebration.” You’d think they would want to hear the cool kid music, but it’s usually not the case.
The seating music playlist consisted of acoustic folk music form artists like Ryan Adams, Iron & Wine and Non Iver. During cocktails I played a lot of country drinking music by artists like Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Florida Georgia Line and Zac Brown Band. For dinner I stuck with The Rat Pack until about halfway through when I switched over to 70’s and 80’s soft rock. Once the dance floor was opened up, I played all the wedding classics and we had a blast!
