October of 2011 was a packed month of weddings, with one of my favorites being the wedding of Leigh Ann and Kurt, with the reception held at the Radisson in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. I first met Leigh Ann a couple months prior to the wedding at our office, and after spending some time getting to know one another, and going over the details of her dream wedding, she decided that Cutting Edge Entertainment was a good fit. Leigh Ann is one of those people who is just so sweet and genuine that I wanted to do everything in my DJ power to give her the best reception possible. A few weeks before the wedding, I met with both Kurt and Leigh Ann, and we had a great time going over all of the details for the party. We spent nearly two hours going over a time line and listening to lots of music to select a perfect grand entrance song. I had a great time and was super psyched to be a part of this celebration.
The day of the wedding had finally arrived and myself and DJ Michael got to the reception site about two hours before the start time. I feel it’s important to get there early to set up, sound check, coordinate with the other event professionals (maitre d’, photographer, party planner, etc), and also give myself a chance to get settled in before guests arrive. This also gave us plenty of time to set up up-lighting, which created a soft purple glow in the room. I provided music for cocktail hour, dinner, and of course, dancing. The crowd was so much fun, and all of the guests – both young and old – made their way out to the dance floor to have a good time. The staff at the Radisson did a superb job, accommodating all of the guests and making sure the flow of the party went smoothly. I also got to work with photographer Chrissy K, along with her assistant Lisa, who did a great job.
A few weeks after the wedding Leigh Ann and Kurt posted the following testimonial on Wedding Wire.
We hired Richie as our DJ for our wedding and we can’t say enough good things about Richie and Cutting Edge! Richie did an amazing job. He was professional, flexible and was also available to meet to discuss the wedding anytime. Since the wedding so many of our guests have told us how much they loved the DJ. Richie really interacted well with our guests, allowing them to have an amazing time. We would highly recommend Cutting Edge and especially Richie!
Thanks so much for the kind words. Congratulations to you both and I look forward to keeping in touch.
