Early Sunday Wedding (Different wedding ideas)

Not every wedding in the same. There is not cookie cutter way to have a wedding. Bride and groom decide what type of wedding they want to share with their guests. 

  I met with a couple that wanted an early Sunday wedding. They let me know they did not want any lights since it was so early.  But I brought one just in case.  It was a cloudy day so it did create a dark room even though they had a lot of windows. 

  They had one of their bridesmaids officiate the wedding. It makes it a nice touch with someone knows the bride/groom officiates the wedding and talks about him or her.

The cocktail hour was held outside separate from the reception. During the cocktail and dinnertime, jazzy music was played so it gave the wedding a classy feel.

 

The grand entrance was only the bride and groom then it lead to the first dance. Soon after then it was the father daughter dance. After those dances, the bride and groom thanked their guests. 

What made this wedding so different was it was not dark outside and it was minus the bouquet toss and garter toss.  A wedding can be any which way. It is a celebration of passage of life and certain traditions do not need to be included. Wedding was a blast.  

The pluses of having an early Sunday Wedding is that guests do not need to leave the event early since it finished at 330. It would give guests an opportunity to get home at a reseaonable time in case they have to go to work the next day.

Dj Equipment Highlight: Numark DJ2FGO2

 

 Every time after an event, I think about what would make it better. Often I would think what other songs would have been appropriate and what equipment would be better to make the set up faster. I like the fact that I believe in having back ups to my back ups. I always bring my main Pioneer controller.  It is a work-horse and I can use it without fail. Earlier this year, I would bring another Pioneer controller just in case. Just in case never happened but it was peace of mind and there was no worry since I had my back up. 

  I learned of a mini controller that would fit on the laptop. Maybe it was too good to be true but I looked into it. Many folks thought it was a nice piece of equipment.  The Numark DJ2GO2 is a matter a fact to go equipment that can be set up in minutes. There was no learning curve and it was easy to mix music. If there is a fear that someone can not mix with it, but one can actually beat-match and throw in a song at the appropriate time.  One of the only downsides is one cannot get down with the scratching on this equipment. It is a simple controller to manage your music. Also if one is going on a trip, he or she can prepare their set since its very mobile. This piece of equipment is a good back up and can rock any party if needed.

Creative and Talented Wedding in Santa Clara October 20th

 Typically at a wedding, I am the only source of music. There are some instances when that is not the case. On October 20th, I did a wedding with talented guests and it was one to remember. I brought my typical equipment plus an extra mixer with cabling. The young musicians delighted the crowd with their vocals and their keyboard and guitar skills. It did not take them long to set up since it was running through my system. For this set up, I included a Mackie 1402 analogue mixer. It had 14 channels  (and it was not complicated to work) so I can easily add 2 more microphones, 2 guitars and 1 keyboard. Also I had my own wireless microphone connected and with my controller was connected to the mixer. From the mixer out, the videographer was able to record everything that took place at the wedding with a recording device. 

   The best man told me he was nervous and wanted to do the second toast after the maid of honor. With that information, I introduced the toast and gave the microphone to the maid of honor. Later I was told that the best man would be doing the toast while a guitar was strummed and I relayed the information to him and he had a shocked look on his face. The best man started serenading the bride and groom and it surprised everyone. In reality, the best man was not nervous but it was an act. He had a good voice and sang a good song. Weddings can be creative especially when you have talented people.
