Kyle and Julie – Bali Hai

Bali Hai Ceremony

Island Vibe Wedding

Bali Hai is located in San Diego on Shelter Island and is surrounded by the scenic views of downtown, Coronado and the harbor. It is a tropical themed restaurant and bar with two reception spaces and a ceremony area. Many of the people that work there have done so for many years which shows in their professionalism and personalities. I average 6-10 weddings a year there and love to work there because it feels like I am on vacation.

Kyle and Julie wanted their wedding to feel like it was a destination wedding and they picked the perfect venue. They also picked the perfect wedding DJ to provide the perfect island vibe soundtrack.

Island Music

The guests arrived to a playlist of island music complete with Ukulele and slide guitars to give that Aloha vibe. Cocktail music was a mix of reggae and acoustic music which I like to call “Beach Style.” As guests entered the reception room, I switched the music up to a jazzy vibe with artists like Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole and Sam Cooke. Once it was time for open dancing, I took a generational approach which is to play older music first and get more contemporary as the night went on.

The night ended on a high note with a sing along of Bohemian Rhapsody. Everyone got in a big circle on the dance floor with Kyle and Julie in the middle. Once the song ended, there was a group huge initiated by high emotion and love.
