On October 9th of 2010 I had the great honor of being the requested DJ and MC for the wedding reception of Pratima and Omar, held at the beautiful Belle Voir Manor in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Over the years, Cutting Edge Entertainment has been called upon to entertain at celebrations for people of all different cultures and backgrounds, and over the years we have become familiar with all sorts of cultural and ethnic traditions.
Pratima and Omar had a traditional Indian wedding ceremony. We provided sound for those called upon to speak at the hour-long ceremony, using multiple lapel and hand-held microphones for the ceremony’s participants. As always, I am honored to take part in the traditions and ceremonies of different cultures, as it keeps my job interesting and enlightening.
When the ceremony was concluded, all three hundred and fifty guests moved on to enjoy the cocktail hour, during which time we provided music, and a video screen and projector to show a montage that the bride and groom put together for their guests. Once the cocktail hour was over, the guests headed into the ballroom of the Belle Voir Manor for the reception. The couple had a special surprise for everyone when they did their first dance. I played about a minute and a half, of the Elvis Presley classic The Wonder of You then I slammed right into Michael Jackson’s The Way You Make Me Feel. The bride and groom had pre-choreographed a fun dance, which included a moonwalk from Omar. Throughout the night I played both popular American dance music, mixing in a blend of Indian music as well. With over three hundred people on the dance floor it was a wedding I will not soon forget.
The staff at Belle Voir did an excellent job. It was a very large crowd but they handled them with ease. I look forward to doing my next wedding there. I also worked with Siobhan and Darah from Dollface Studio. They took great pictures and I thank them for letting us feature them here on our blog.
Most of all thank you to Pratima and Omar. You both were a blast to work with. I enjoyed meeting all of your friends and family, and had a lot of fun at your wedding out there with the crowd. On behalf of myself, and the staff of Cutting Edge Entertainment, we wish you all the best!!
