Last night’s reception for John and Jane at Silver Creek Valley Country Club was fun and VERY unique. It was the first time I ever DJ’d a Canadian-Vietnamese Wedding. How cool! What else made it so unique? Over 50% of the guests traveled from out of town to be there! Guests came from Canada, Boston, Norway, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Viet Nam, Las Vegas, Seattle, Rhode Island, Michigan, and Virginia. WOW!If you are into sweets, you would have loved John and Jane’s reception. They had the traditional wedding cake as well as a candy table AND a chocolate fountain with plenty of goodies to go dipping.
First Dance: “From This Moment” by Shania Twain.
Side Note: Obviously John and Jane appreciate photo and video very much because they had 4 Photographers and 2 Videographers documenting their wedding day.
Something very funny happens when I play a song from the Grease Soundtrack at a Wedding Reception. People come alive! It’s as if they were all closet-actors just waiting for the right moment to showcase their acting and singing abilities. I never get tired of watching the transformation and the craziness. Of course, it happened again Sunday evening at Scott and Jillian’s Reception. Here is a great picture of the Bride having fun with a few of the guests during the song “Summer Lovin”.

We are blessed to live in an area filled with wonderful people from all over the world. I think it’s one of the coolest things about the Bay Area. I had the pleasure of experiencing that diversity last night at the Silver Creek Valley Country Club in San Jose.

Farewell Dance: “Let’s Get It On” – Marvin Gaye
Shiva and Steve are world travelers so it was only fitting that their tables were named after places they visited like Capri, Athens, Rome, Puerto Vallarta, Istanbul, along with a few others. They even had a picture of the two of them at each location. Very cool.
Shiva came up to me at the end of the night and gave me the biggest hug. (Even the Groom Steve hugged me!) They were both so sweet. Then Shiva said “You know the guests would have danced until 5am”. I believed her. What a fun night.
