I had met Nathan through a group of professional paint ball players in years past and he had seen me at mutiple friend’s weddings. So when it came time for him to marry his number one girl, he reached out to me to make it an evening to remember. The Crossings is gorgeous and every time I do a ceremony there, I take in the deep field view.
I love La V. The views are spectacular, the architecture of the building is classic and the staff is wonderful. I have been on the preferred vendors list here for a few years now and I am very thankful to work with these great people. Eric and Jen were looking for some Ratpack for dinner and then some classics for the dance floor and I supplied them.
Technically I wasn’t the Dj for this, but I did play a big part in it as my brother-in-law John married the love of his life, Kelly. I had another DJ perform at the event while I kicked back with my in-laws and caught up on life. Actually, I didn’t kick back at all. It rained cats and dogs at this wedding and I had to help scramble the guests indoors as the venue switched the ceremony to an inside hall. Let this be a reminder to any couple getting married that rain can happen at any time, so when picking a venue, factor in the rain contingency plan.
The CCC is a venue I get to play at a couple times a year and it is always a good time. On this lovely day, these lids tied the knot on the lawn with the archway to the East, towards the Coronado Bridge. One thing I always enjoy about this place is how they have the projector option complete with a sound system so everyone can hear it.
These two had a destination wedding in San Diego and opted for a classic Mexican influenced wedding in the hart of Old Town at the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Walking into this place sets you back 200 years. My music selections for the ceremony and cocktails were some classic solo guitar rifts that I found online that really set the mood. Then once open dancing came around, it was all fist pumping and sing a longs.
I knew Justin and Danielle separately so when I found out they were going to get married, I was enthralled with the idea of me being their wedding DJ. Secluded Garden Estate is secluded up in the mountains of Temecula. This place is perfect for a folky type wedding with re-purposed decor.
I was so honored to be a party of David and Stacy’s big day as I had been friends with Stact’s family for 20 years. The views form Tam Ham’s are beautiful at the Cermeony as well as in the banquet hall with its large windows looking into San Diego harbor.
Gerald and Kimara was a couple who came from Las Vegas Nevada that wanted to have a fun party for the family but then wanted a high energy after party. What I did was set up my standard reception set up and I took a generational approach to the music, meaning music for all ages, and then had an after party DJ set up with lights in another room. Once the main reception was over, we transitioned to the after party and really cranked it up for the next couple hours. Fun time!
I have to be honest, I do not remember a thing about this wedding. I really don’t. I can say that it was at The Dana, because it says that in my notes. The Dana’s ceremonies with Mission Bay in the background are so beautiful! I just wish I could write more about this one, but I can’t, haha!
John said Kalyn gets what she wants. Kalyn said she wants to dance her ass off. Kalyn got what she wanted.
