On September 26th of 2015 I traveled to the Villanova University Conference Center in Radnor, PA to rock out the wedding reception of Megan and Derek. In my line of work, I meet a lot of couples in love. 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 Megan and Derek, simply because as in most wedding receptions, their guests varied in both age and musical taste.
This was a wedding that I was anticipating for months, because I knew it was going to be a blast. Once cocktail hour ended, we brought everyone in to the ballroom and began our introductions. The parents, bridal party, and bride and groom each had came out and the guests were cheering so hard it almost overpowered the music. Once the first dance and toasts were finished, everyone enjoyed an amazing meal courtesy of the staff at the Villanova Conference Center. Once dinner ended, we quickly got everyone out on the dance floor. I played everything from “Land of a 1000 Dances” by Wilson Pickett to “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift as well as tons of other great party hits in between. The bride and groom were out on the dance floor nearly the entire night, along with their roughly one hundred and fifty guests. It was a great time for all.
Megan and Derek are amazing, 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. I also had the opportunity to work with Danielle Nowak Photography she did a great job. The pictures came out great and I appreciate Danielle for letting me feature them on our blog.
