Size Doesn’t Matter

Andreea and Robert had only 45 guests at their wedding reception at Palo Alto Hills Country Club. Some people think that it is not necessary to have a DJ for events of this size. I am so glad that Andreea and Robert did not feel that way! (I can’t imagine going to a wedding reception without dancing!) Here is a picture of me with the happy newlyweds at the end of the evening.This was the first Romanian-Scottish reception that I got to DJ and it was such a treat. The guys in the Bridal Party wore the traditional Scottish Kilts. I also had a chance to play music from both countries as well as many of the usual fun dance songs that you would hear at an American Wedding. Here are there special dance selections:

First Dance” “Fly Me To The Moon” by Frank Sinatra
Bouquet Song: “Single Ladies” by Beyonce
Farewell Dance: “Come Away With Me” by Norah Jones

Funny Stuff: The Best Man Christopher gave a very entertaining toast. He started by saying “My toast will be the “Kilt Version” …short enough to keep it interesting…but long enough to cover the important bits”.

You Make Me Wanna Shout!

Okay, this is very short video clip from Erin and Stephen’s Wedding Reception that I DJ’d a couple of weeks ago. I just love it because practically every single person there was on the dance floor.

Erin and Stephen

What a great wedding reception for Erin and Stephen and 140 of their closest friends and family at the Palo Alto Hills Country Club. Erin was ready to dance and party since she just graduated from Stanford. It was so cool introducing them as Mr. Stephen and Doctor Erin Cook. There were many fun guests from Stanford University and UC Santa Barbara who were ready to party too. And they did!Erin and Stephen did a fake first dance with “Truly, Madly, Deeply” from Savage Garden. We had it planned out perfectly. After about a minute of the song, Stephen looked over to me and gave me the “thumbs down” sign so I cut-off the song. Then, I used my tremendous acting skills (lol) and went to the dance floor to ask him what the problem was. He said “This is what I get for letting Erin pick out the music”. Everyone was laughing. I asked him if I should play something else. He said “PLEASE!”. So, I went back and played the real first dance that they chose: “What I like About You” by The Romantics. It was upbeat and fun and the guests absolutely loved it!
What a fun night. Erin’s Dad Rhett and Stephen’s Brother Cameron made a couple of very entertaining toasts that had everyone smiling and laughing. And as you can see by the pictures, they had a great time dancing too. Here are some other special songs they chose:
Bridal Party Introductions: “Beautiful Day” by U2
Father-Daughter Dance: “You Had Me From Hello” by Kenny Chesney
Farewell Dance: “I’ve Had The Time of My Life” (From Dirty Dancing)
