Good Day Bloggers!
DJ Gregg here with this installment of the WEDDING BLOG!
On Saturday, June 22, 2019 I had the privilege of being the DJ entertainment for Julian and Adriana. They were married at the beautiful Pelican Grand Resort in Ft. Lauderdale..
I really enjoy working here, the location is perfect and the staff are always pleasant.
The ceremony was held on the Grand Terrace. It is 12 floors up overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The weather was absolutely perfect and not windy. As the guests gathered in their seats, I played NEO classical tunes by the Vitamin String Quartet. Then the bridal party entered to "Pachabel" by Canon. I played "Here Comes The Bride" for Adriana to walk. The ceremony was very touching with readings by family and friends. Julian and Adriana wrote vows to each other and really expressed their true feeling of love for one another. As the ceremony ended, I played "Wedding Recessional"
The cocktail hour was now in full swing, and everyone was enjoying the tropical sounds provided by Eddie B. & Company.
Once that was over, the guests were asked to go downstairs to the 11th floor ballroom. As they entered, they were taken away with the great ocean view and lavender LED up lights, provided by Eddie B. & Company, of course!. I was playing some cool tunes to set a great mood of fun and festivities.
The bridal party stayed outside to get lined up. I soon started the introductions. First came the parents, Then the bridal party made their entrance. Now it is time for Julian and Adriana to enter. I played "Let's get Loud" by Jennifer Lopez. The room erupted with applause! I then asked them to dance their first dance. "Can't Help Falling In Love" by Elvis Presley. Then Julian and Adriana danced with their parents. "Blessed" by Elton John was used. A perfect song.
Soon after, I had Amanda and Silvana the Maids Of Honor and Daniel the Best Man do their speeches.
During dinner, I kept it light, playing some easy top 40 tunes and some light vocal.
After dinner, we did the cake cutting and bouquet toss. soon after that we really heated up the party and didn't look back!
I was able to play music from all genres and styles. but it was top 40 and 70's-80's that worked the best.
All in all it was a really great party and everyone had a lot of fun!
