Kristen & Terry’s Raddison Hotel Wedding

Bride and Groom

On April 6th, 2013 I was at Radisson in Freehold, NJ to rock out the wedding reception of Kristen and Terry.  In my line of work, I meet a lot of couples in love. I could tell right away that Kristen and Terry cared very much for each other (and no, I don’t always say that).   In our meetings prior to the wedding, the bride and groom would constantly exchange smiles, winks, and I even caught them playing footsies underneath the conference table. The bride and groom were excited and their eyes lit up as we sat and discussed the dance music we would play during the wedding reception.

Kristen and Terry are definitely both party animals, and they really wanted all of their guests to have a great time. They picked the right DJ for the job, because getting (and keeping) people out on the dance floor happens to be my specialty. I played everything from “Runaround Sue” by Dion & The Belmonts to “Dynamite” by Taio Cruz, and everyone had a blast. One thing remained the same. It didn’t hurt that this crowd was ready to go as soon as dinner was over, and did not stop until the reception came to a close.

Now, of course, I can’t take all the credit for the success of the party.   The staff at the Radisson Hotel did a magnificent job.  There was constant communication between myself and their staff, which enabled us to work together toward the overall success of the event.  I also had the chance to work with photographers Brett and Dawn from Brett Martelli Photography.  They both took amazing pictures and were very kind to let us feature some here on our blog.

In conclusion, everything could not have been without the bride and groom. The wedding was amazing and I was so glad to be a part of it. I wish both Kristen and Terry the best in the start of your new life together, and I hope to see you both at future events. Thank you for choosing Cutting Edge Entertainment.

A few weeks after their wedding the bride and groom posted the following testimonial on Wedding Wire.

Richie Abrams was our DJ for our wedding April 6th. When we first met him right off the bat he was so energetic and genuinely excited to be a part of our day. Richie created a timeline of events for the reception and was a huge help with giving us ideas to make it special and stand out. Also, he followed the timeline exactly as we worked it with him. So many DJs promise you they will do things a certain way, then fall far short of what’s expected. This guy and his company really delivered! Our guests had nothing but great things to say about our event! Any brides that ask me for a DJ I would say Richie from Cutting Edge DJ Entertainment is the one and only choice!!
