Kelly and John’s Aldie Mansion Wedding
So far 2013 has been amazing year for me, and I am so happy to have been a part of so many great wedding receptions. This wedding was held in late May at the Aldie Mansion in Bucks County, and Kelly and John were a fun, outgoing couple, whom I had a blast working with. As a Wedding DJ it’s important to play all sorts of music from all different genres and eras including many diverse artists. Many brides and grooms are concerned with making sure we play a little bit of something for everyone. In my opinion four to five hours is more than enough time to keep everyone happy, whether it be with Big Band, Jazz, Motown, Rock and Roll, or Top 40, I have no problem fitting it all in. This was very important to Kelly and John, simply because as in most wedding receptions, their guests varied in both age and musical taste.
This wedding was a lot of fun to be a part of as the Wedding DJ, and the energy of the bride, groom and all their guests was contagious. I have worked with some brides and grooms in the past that sometime worry that not many guests will dance, because they are shy or just not big dancers – when I hear that I always smile, because most times these couples underestimate their guests. People do not get all dressed up in their fancy suits or dresses to just sit at their table and listen to music; they came to have a great time and because they love you and want to celebrate your special day with you. I feel it is up to me to make sure I create that fun, relaxed environment to allow people to let loose and party hard. Now of course the bartender always helps us out, we will never deny that, and once the party begins it’s the DJ that makes sure all of the guests are out there, whether they are dancing, singing along, or just clapping their hands off to the side, I know they’re having a good time. In my opinion, once the party is over – and days, weeks, months and even years go by, you may forget what you ate, you may forget what you wore, there is even a good chance you may forget what kind of music we played, but you should always be able to remember the great time you had.
As always I enjoyed working with Jenn and Joey of Jennifer Childress Photography, and I look forward to working with them again in the future. They are very talented and were great to work alongside with. Thank you for letting me feature these impressive images for the readers of our blog to see. As always, the staff at Aldie Mansion and Jeffrey Miller Catering did an outstanding job. The entire staff there is amazing and I enjoy working with them. And of course, it is pretty easy to have a good party when you are working with a great couple like Kelly and John. Thank you again for having us be a part of your wedding day, it was my pleasure to be your Wedding DJ!
