It was another perfect day in Havre de Grace yesterday as Jamie & Tim became Mr. & Mrs. Janczuck at The Vandiver Inn. I loved working with Photographer James Berglie of Be Photography and of course the stellar staff of The Vandiver. The newlyweds opened their reception with a first dance to “Who I Am With You” by Chris Young. Their family and guests partied and danced like it was a Saturday night. Musical requests ranged from Country to Motown with some Top 40 hits also in the mix. We wrapped up a great Sunday reception with Brantley Gilbert’s “Bottoms Up” and then everyone headed to McGregor’s Restaurant for the after party! What a fun way to wrap up a 3 wedding weekend. Congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Janczuck!
It was a beautiful Saturday in Havre de Grace for Christina & Zach’s wedding and reception at The Vandiver Inn. The ceremony was followed by drinks and hors d’oeuvres and then the party started. Mr. & Mrs. Walsh opened the reception with a first dance to Brad Paisley’s “Then” and that was followed by folks of all ages gravitating to the dance floor for a mix of party songs from all genres. Working along Carrie & Butch Linton of Linton Photography we made sure the bride and groom’s big day was everything they dreamed of. Lady Antebellum’s “When You Got A Good Thing” was the last song of the evening and a great way to end a magical day.
Olivia & Joe became Mr. & Mrs. Stevens last night at the Grand Historic Venue in Baltimore. I worked along side Photographers Bill & Robin Rettberg and watched a magical night unfold. The reception started off with the newlyweds celebrating The Baltimore Ravens and entering to Nelly’s “Hot In Here” with the groom doing his best Ray Lewis “Squirrel Dance”! Olivia & Joe danced their first dance as husband and wife to “My My Love” by Joshua Radin and the party music through the night ranged from Motown hits to 2 Pac! There was a limbo contest and a dance off at one point…just and all around great party. One Republic’s “Good Life” was the last song of the night and a great way to end a super fun celebration. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Stevens!
Kept it in the family last night. I was the DJ/MC for Gina & Jeff Rucci’s reception at The Mansion at Valley Country Club. 2 years ago I had the opportunity to DJ Gina’s sister’s wedding so lots of fun, familiar faces at last night’s celebration. I worked along side the Valley Mansion’s fabulous staff and Photographer Kyle Bergner as we gave it are all to make Gina & Jeff’s big day perfect. Mr. & Mrs. Rucci along with their bridal party made their grand entrance to “Summer” by Calvin Harris and then the newlyweds danced their first dance as a married couple to Adelle’s version of “Make You Feel My Love”. Top 40 hits, mixed with some really fun classics kept folks grooving all night. We ended the evening with Michael Bublé’s cover of “Save The Last Dance For Me”. Good vibes made for lasting memories last night. Congratulations to Gina & Jeff!
Yesterday was a picture perfect day at Swan Harbor Farm in Aberdeen for Sharon and Mike’s wedding and reception. I had the chance to work with Dean and Brown Catering and Jax Photography again and this team made sure the newlyweds had a stress free, super fun wedding day. Following the ceremony and cocktails, the new Mr. and Mrs. Federman opened the reception dancing to “At Last” by Etta James. This crowd of 120 partied like it was a Saturday night grooving to a mix of songs from many different genres. The bride and groom were joined by all couples on the dance floor as we ended the night with Train’s “Marry Me”. After the reception Sharon and Mike totally surprised me with a gift of 4 Jerry Garcia ties! Such a thoughtful gift and awesome couple!
Andrea & John became Mr. & Mrs. Tully last night at Swan Harbor Farm in Aberdeen. Unfortunately, the newlyweds had to say their “I do’s” under the tent as the rain moved through. As I started their recessional song, The Beatles “Good Day Sunshine”, the skies opened up and Andrea & John were able to make their way back down the aisle in the sunshine. Dean and Brown Catering served up hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, followed by a surf and turf meal, while Event Planner Aubrey Canale of Simply Created Events kept the night moving right along. Mr. & Mrs. Tully danced their first dance as a married couple to Ray Lamontagne’s “You Are The Best Thing”. This 6 hour wedding/reception flew by as a party crowd of about 100 people kept the dance floor packed all night. Motown, Funk, Classic Rock and Top 40 hits filled the air and we wrapped up the evening with couples of all ages joining the bride & groom for Frank Sinatra’s “The Way You Look Tonight”. Andrea & John were so easy to work with and super fun. Thanks Mr. & Mrs. Tully!
Saturday night’s wedding reception at The Mansion at Valley Country Club in Baltimore was so much fun! Ellen & Mike celebrated becoming Mr. & Mrs. York with their friends and family and asked me to be their DJ/MC. The newlyweds along with their parents and bridal party were formally introduced into the reception by yours truly while I played Imagine Dragon’s “On Top Of The World”. Mr & Mrs. York danced their first dance as a married couple to a song called “Warm” by The Coronas. The family run staff at The Mansion served up a delicious meal while Art Donovan Jr. served up drinks in his late father’s amazing sports bar filled with classic Baltimore Colts memorabilia. Guests at this wedding danced to everything from hip hop to swing to classic rock. They came to celebrate and what a party it turned out to be. We ended the evening with sing alongs to Billy Joel and Queen songs and finally wrapped it up with The Proclaimer’s “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles). Good vibes, great atmosphere, tasty food, fun music and an energetic crowd made this wedding reception great!
Friday night was a hot one at Swan Harbor Farm in Aberdeen for Jenna & Craig’s big night. Luckily, the breeze off the bay kept the guests cool for the ceremony and reception while Dean and Brown Catering wined and dined them. Mr. & Mrs. Connors danced their first dance as a married couple to “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz. For a warm September at Swan Harbor I worried that people wouldn’t be prone to dance however, these guests proved me wrong. They danced ALL night to a mix of party music from many different genres. A great party wrapped up with Jenna & Craig front and center on the dance floor with their entire bridal party along with 99% of the guests surrounding them to sing and dance to Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue”. Photographer Bill Rettberg captured all the fun and memories. A great wedding to start off the weekend!
Last night’s wedding was so much fun! Jennifer & Jason became Mr. & Mrs. Boye at The Liriodendron Mansion in Bel Air. The rain wasn’t an issue as guests gathered on the portico for the ceremony and Officiant Heather Saul did an amazing job as always leading the bride and groom through the ceremony. Dean and Brown Catering out did themselves with an awesome spread of hors d’oeuvres and a meal that was top notch while Photographer Nicholas Griner captured all the memories. After dinner Jen & Jason danced their first dance as a married couple to one of my favorites, “You & Me” by Dave Matthews Band. Musically the night was filled with requests for lots of 90’s hip hop and R&B mixed with today’s latest hits. We wrapped up an amazing party with The Wanted’s “Glad You Came”. Thanks Jen & Jason for having me as your DJ/MC. I had a blast!
Laurel & Matt’s wedding and reception was my first ever event at Mountain Branch Golf Club in Joppa and it was an amazing experience. This venue is beautiful and the staff is top notch and super friendly! The new Mr. & Mrs. Psczolka danced their first dance as husband and wife to Staind’s “Tangled up in you” followed by dinner and dancing. Lot’s of requests from the crowd for some fun 90’s hip hop as well as hits by today’s Top 40 artists and just a touch of modern country kept the dance floor hopping. Ricky Chung Photography captured the fun as we ended with the entire bridal party and the guests that came to party grooving to Chris Brown’s “Forever”. Laurel, the bride came up to me as the last song ended and told me that this was “the best night of her life”. Those are the magic words that keep this DJ smiling and motivated!
