In The Air Tonight.

Ashley and Nick took dance lessons and choreographed their First Dance. It was the first time that I’ve ever seen the Groom actually pick up the Bride during the First Dance and swing her around. Yes, the Bride was airborne! It was awesome! Photo by Deanna Graham. The 180 guests who came to celebrate at Cinnabar Hills Golf Club in San Jose boogied to 50′s, 60′s, Country, Disco, Motown, and some current stuff as well. Ashley and Nick even requested a few fun Italian songs for everyone. Variety was key and they had a great time.

Wedding – Cinnabar Hills CC

Cinnabar Hills Country Club is one of those places that I love to DJ at in Silicon Valley. The room is nicely-sized with lots of windows looking out to the green and hills. The staff is great and the food is excellent. And bonus, they have a big dance floor.

Almost 200 guests were gathered there today for Alli and Kenny’s reception. Alli and Kenny’s musical tastes were total opposites which was pretty funny. Of course, this is not uncommon among couples. She loves Justin Timberlake and Jennifer Lopez and he is into AC/DC and Guns & Roses. Fortunately the guests loved everything… especially the disco and 70′s. The parents even requested a few songs from their generation. Everyone was happy.First Dance: “What a Wonderful World” – Louis Armstrong
Father-Daughter Dance: “I Love Her First” – Heartland
Groom-Mother Dance: “For Once in My Life” – Tony Bennett and Stevie Wonder
Farewell Dance: “The Way You Look Tonight” – Frank Sinatra

Alli and Kenny are both so much fun and are huge Disney fans so it was no surprise that they had a Mickey Mouse & Minnie Caketop and table names like Buzz Light Year, Space Mountain, Indiana Jones, and my favorite…Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. I love it!

Alli told me last year when they hired me that their friends and family were wild and they were going to party. Uh, yeah, that would be correct! They partied! In fact, they did not want to stop. At the end of the reception, they had me announce that the party would continue at The V Bar at Hotel Valencia in Santana Row.
