John and Caitlin’s Normandy Farm Wedding
Talking about past events here on our website/blog is a great opportunity to give people who are new to us a little taste of what we’re all about. Writing and featuring pictures and videos from many of the weddings, parties and events that we DJ is something that separates us from most of our competition. Over these past two years I have written somewhere around forty blog posts – mostly from weddings. I write about receptions that I’ve had the pleasure to DJ all over the Philadelphia area at innumerous facilities. This particular blog post is the first about a wedding reception where I was the Wedding DJ at a great venue called Normandy Farms, in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. I have worked at this venue many times before over the past few years, so I am excited to finally feature it here on our website/blog.
I met John and Caitlin months before their wedding date. They are one of those couples that I felt I clicked with instantly. After talking with them for about an hour, going over a timeline, talking about music, and telling them about my approach to my job as a Wedding DJ, they decided to hire me to DJ their wedding reception. Time flew by and before I knew it, it was November 25th, 2011, John and Caitlyn’s big day. My assistant DJ and I got to Normandy Farms about two hours before the ceremony. We quickly got set up and settled in before the over one hundred and fifty guests arrived. Along with playing music for the ceremony, I also provided the microphone for the officiant. All the guests were able to hear everything being spoken clearly, and we played an important role in their ceremony.
Being a DJ is my full time profession and has been for the past eight years. In total, I have been a DJ for over seventeen years, having started at a very young age. Even after a couple thousand gigs, I still work hard to improve my performance. I feel very confident that as long as I get to know the bride and groom, build a rapport and prepare well, I will rock out the reception. I spent hours with John and Caitlin through phone calls, emails, and our nearly two hour wrap up meeting, after which, I was confident and eager to get their guests out there dancing for this wedding. The bride, groom, and their bridal party led the charge to the dance floor, and danced to everything from some older favorites like “Shout” (Otis Day & The Knights), to some current selections like “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO. I had a lot of fun being the DJ for this reception, and working for such great clients.
Thanks and Congratulations to John and Caitlin, I wish you all the best as you start your life together as husband and wife.
