July was a pretty busy month at Cutting Edge Entertainment, keeping our DJs busy with lots of weddings. On July 9, my own DJ adventures took me to The Independence Seaport Museum in Philadelphia, for the wedding of Thomas and Jenell. I’ve been to the Seaport Museum a few times in the past, but this was my first chance to do a wedding at the venue, and I loved it. The Independence Seaport Museum (or ISM) is located at Penn’s Landing, overlooking the Delaware River and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, whith great views of both the bridge and the city skyline. I would definitely suggest this place for anybody looking to have a reception where you can be both indoors and out. The view was so clear that we were able to see the Philadelphia Phillies firework show from the deck.
Thomas and Jenell wanted to elevate the ambiance in the room for the reception, so they added on both up lighting and our overhead effects lighting. Once the dinner was over and the party was ready begin, the bride and groom wanted to get the partying started right away . We decided to jump right into it, starting off with “Yeah” by Usher, and continuing a high energy hip hop set that packed the floor. We also had lots of request for “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson, which got everyone getting their “moonwalk” on. The bride and groom, along with their guests had an amazing night.
I can’t take all the credit for the success of the event, I had a lot of help. My assistant DJ Justin did a great job (as always), beat mixing all different genres of music together. Our lighting technician for this evening was none other than our CEE production manager Carl, who kept the room glowing brilliantly the whole night. Nancy from Culinary Concepts – who I think is totally awesome – not only did a great job with the event coordination that night but was also was a big help to the bride and groom before the event. Nancy and her team did an excellent job, and I look forward very much to my next party at The Seaport Museum. It was also my first time working with photographer David Zaveloff. The pictures look awesome, and we appreciate your letting us show your work on our blog.
Lastly, a big thanks, and congratulations to the bride and groom, Thomas and Jenell. May your marriage rock as much as your wedding reception. You were a pleasure to work with and I wish you both the best of luck.
