Wedding Reception at Royal Fiesta
Crystal and Calvin Edwards celebrated their wedding at the Royal Fiesta Catering in Deerfield Beach, FL on 3/26/2017. The ceremony took place at a nearby church then all of the approximate 100 guests were invited to Royal Fiesta for the cocktail hour and reception. As the guests arrived they were directed to the 2nd floor and were greeted with drinks and appetizers. I played a mix of easy listening/jazzy tunes while everyone mingled and waited for the grand entrance. Crystal chose We Are Family by Sister Sledge for the parents and grand parents entrance, Friends by Whodini for the ushers, Flawless by Beyonce for the bridesmaids, Classic Man by Jidenna for the groomsmen and 24k Magic by Bruno Mars for her and Calvin’s intros. The first dance was to End Of Time Remix by Beyonce and J. Timberlake then Crystal danced with her dad to Isn’t She Lovely by Stevie Wonder and Calvin danced with his mom to A Song For Mama by Boyz II Men. Everyone found their seats then Brittany (maid of honor) and the 2 best men Shawn and Wilson gave the toasts then Jeremy Hayes gave the blessing of the meals. The meals were buffet style so as each table was called one by one I played a mix of R&B classics that everyone enjoyed. Crystal did provide me with a play list that included top 40, R&B, Hip-Hop, Motown and 80s dance hits. After dinner the dance floor was the place to be!! What a great dancing group I had that night. I did take a few requests for some group dances like the Cha Cha Slide and the Wobble along with some Michael Jackson favorites. The happy couple did have a cake cutting ceremony and the garter/bouquet toss as the night progressed but most of the action was on the dance floor. The closing songs for the evening were Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye and Work It Out by Tye Tribbett and that put a cap on an amazing Sunday night wedding. Congrats to Crystal, Calvin and the entire Edwards and Smith families.
Special thanks to the staff at the Royal Fiesta for their attention and professionalism at every event.
80th Birthday Party at Royal Fiesta
Happy 80th Birthday to a person that her family and friends lovingly call “Amazing Grace”!!! That’s right folks approximately 35 close friends and family members arrived at Royal Fiesta in Deerfield Beach, FL and gave Grace a huge surprise welcome when she walked through the doors. Grace’s children Wanda, Hector and Angel put together a birthday celebration for their mom that no one will soon forget. I arrived early to decorate the ballroom with 12 LED, wireless up-lights and our signature “Strike A Pose” photo booth all provided by Eddie B & Company. As the evening progressed and everyone enjoyed a 3 station buffet, I played a mix of classic tunes. Everything from ABBA to ZZ Top!! Everyone was very excited and happy for Grace as we gathered together and sang Happy Birthday to her. Great fun had by all and I hope I get to DJ Grace’s 90th. God Bless You Kid!!!!
