Last Friday night we did a wedding reception for an amazing couple, which had truly a very fun group of family and friends.
Reception Location: Borallys
Photographer: Best Image
Entertainment DJ/MC: Selective Sound Entertainment (DJ Christian)
What a refreshing reception. Having the reception in the Villa at
Borallys is truly a treat when you have the 2 levels and only 150-160
guests. T Title he guests were able to all seat on the lower level, while they had the upper level for gathering and desserts.
We worked very closely with Gary and Faye beforehand to ensure every
detail and every request was listened to and carried out. They came up
with a truly fun mix of unique formality dance songs and a very WIDE
variety of requests from the guests.
It all started when the guests came in. We were playing a mix of all
Tropical upbeat music. Everything from Bob Marley, to Jimmy Buffet and
so forth. Real refreshing and different. Gary and Fay chose to have
the head table right below on the1st lower level across from the DJ
GREAT location and it really opened things up. We seated the guests
and blew everyone away with an amazing grand introduction using very
high energy music like Battle without honor and into Battleflag for
the bride and grooms grand intro. We obviously got the clean version
After the toasts and cake cutting were complete we went into dinner
playing an array of Italian and upbeat Mowtown. The guests were even
swaying and dancing in their seats. In addition we did the
names/kissing thing where they gave us all the names of the married
couples at the wedding and everytime someone rang the glasses, we
pulled out a name and when we mentioned it on the microphone, they had
to show the bride and groom how a married couple should kiss. IT was
truly A HIT! Great icebreaker that involves everyone.
After the formal dances which were really a great treat because there
were some Van Morrison songs. Opened the dancefloor with a slow song, not a spot left open after the 1st song and then the fun really began.
The array of
music we played all night was incredible. We did the Tarantella, we
played gitterbugs into Michael Jackson, Paperboy, Counting Crowes,
Friends in low places,, to even Bruce Springsteens, Glory days.
It was truly amazing as we did sing alongs, and had all the guests
dancing till past midnight. Songs from Pour some Sugar on me to Summer of 69. Even through in some Jump around and this was truly a treat.
