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.
I hadn’t heard of this venue because prior to the this wedding, it had never been used for a wedding! From the brain and stomach of Brian Malarkey comes this rustic, reclaimed college campus cafe with a desert landscape, herb garden complete with rattle snakes. You just have to go there to understand what I just wrote.
These two East Coast kids met in San Diego and decided to start their life together here by getting married at Bali Hai. I don’t know if it was the beats I was playing or the stiff Mai Tais but they went nuts!
Yet another wonderful locals only event at Bird’s Surf Shed, but this time it was for Bird’s daughter who I have known for 15+ years. They originally got married in Fiji but had to have a little get together for the friends and family back at the shed.
These two kids wanted to laugh and dance the day into the night as close to the water as possible, which is exactly what they got. The Garty Pavilion is a little gem of a venue tucked away in Mission Bay with the only access through Mission Beach.
On top of a mountain in Temecula is the Gersham Bacchus Winery, a very charming and elegant winery with the staff to match. Stephan and Jennifer wanted R&B, Soul and Hip Hop for most of their wedding and I said thank you. I still use this play list as an example of my ability to cater to a client’s request.
