In November of 2014, I was the MC/DJ for a wedding at The Merion in Cinnaminson, New Jersey. I have worked there many times in the past, and always enjoy getting to see wedding coordinator extraordinaire and former high school classmate, “The Amazing” Denyse. Nicole and Gary were a laid back bride and groom, and their primary concern was with making sure that their friends and family had a great time at their wedding reception. At our wrap up meeting just prior to the wedding, we spent a lot of time going over the music for the ceremony, dinner, and dancing. We sat together for a while just listening to music and looking for the perfect grand entrance, cake cutting, and parent dance songs. The best part of my job is getting to know my clients and share in their excitement for their big day, and sitting down with them face to face really gives me the chance to do just that!
I was very impressed with the staff at The Merion. It is always great to work with a staff that knows exactly how to keep a party running smoothly. There was never any lull or down time throughout the entire wedding reception. Guests were kept entertained either with watching the wedding formalities like the first dance, parent dances, or cake cutting, and when these were done the crowd was treated to a delicious meal, followed by dancing, dancing, and more dancing. 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.
It was great to work with Denyse and the rest of the crew and The Merion. I hope to be back in the facility soon for more parties. I also had the opportunity to work with Krista and Michael from Michael’s Photography. They always do a wonderful job capturing images for our blog. Nicole and Gary are fantastic, and I enjoyed getting to know them before the wedding and it was awesome to be a part of their celebration. I look forward to staying in touch with them, as they begin their lives together as husband and wife.
A few weeks after the wedding the bride and groom were nice enough to post the following testimonial on Wedding Wire…
Words cannot express how wonderful Richie was to work with. He made the whole experience extremely easy for us. From the very first meeting we knew we had chosen the best company and DJ to work with. My guests are still talking about how much fun they had at our wedding. I missed a couple aspects of the night because I was dancing so much. Richie is absolutely amazing!!! You will not regret hiring him!
