The Cairnwood Estate in Montgomery County is like a second home to the staff here at Cutting Edge Entertainment, and I consider myself fortunate to work there on a fairly regular basis. Being intimately familiar with a venue gives the Wedding DJ at a huge advantage to coordinate a party there without a hitch since we are familiar with the logistics of the mansion, especially when the grand tent is used adding another dimension to the venue.
Cairnwood hosted the wedding of Rich and Marly on a spectacular Sunday in October. I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Rich and Marly numerous times before their big day, and they are an awesome couple with as much character and charm as their wedding venue. They had lots of specific requests, and a definite vision of what their day was to be like, which only makes the job of the Wedding DJ that much easier. The job of a good Wedding DJ involves much more than meeting specific music requests, but also following a timeline while communicating and working closely with the other wedding professionals (photographers, caterers, etc). Communicating with these other professionals and working as a team is key to a seamless and successful wedding reception.
This wedding was set to go late into Sunday night, but within the first hour I knew that Rich and Marly’s guests were there to party, and prepared to go all night long. The ceremony took place out in the front of the mansion where we provided music and microphones for the officiant and Rich’s live performance serenading his new wife in front of all of their guests. It was truly unique and added a great personal touch to the ceremony.
The guests moved inside the Cairnwood mansion house to enjoy their cocktail hour of drinks and hors d’oeuvres. During our meetings and planning prior to the wedding reception we selected a playlist for the night that would honor both the backgrounds of Rich and Marly. Opening the dance floor with a traditional Jewish Hora to get the whole family involved and sprinkling in some great latin salsa to get everyone’s heart rates up throughout the night really worked well, and made for a festive and fun reception party. The dancing didn’t stop until the lights came on, and all of the guests participated and had a great time.
The staff of the Cairnwood Estate, Feastivities Catering, Photography by Kevin York, and Cutting Edge Entertainment all came together that night as one big team and insured one of the best nights of Rich and Marly’s lives was a celebration no one will soon forget. Thanks so much Rich and Marly, it was an honor to be your Wedding DJ, and be chosen to be a part of your big day. From myself, and the rest of the team at Cutting Edge. we wish you all the best life has to offer in your lives together as husband and wife.
