Weekend Weddings: June 26th & June 27th

Hello All: Well this past weekend was a huge success. Two weddings, Two amazing parties, both fantastic events. Here's the quick breakdown:

Friday June 26Th: Anna & Anthony @ The Hillbrook Club.

This was definitely one reception I will remember for a long time. Anna and Anthony had around 150 friends and family join them for their wedding ceremony just outside the "Tea House" @ The Hillbrook Club with a crazy vodka filled reception to follow. Anna was born in Russia and only a few close family members made the trip over the pond for the event....with amazingly potent Russian Vodka to share. - Each table had a few bottles of vodka along with a shot glass for each guest and everyone was sure to "toast" during the meal for each of the 3 speakers. - By the time dancing started, it only took 1 song to fill the dance floor and it never let down from there. - It was an exciting night filled with dancing and liquor.

Saturday June 27Th: Alison & Christopher @ The Club at Key Center

Alison & Christopher said their "I-Do's" at the Old Stone Church and then caught up with their guests at one of my favorite venue's in Cleveland: The Club @ Key Center. This facility is top notch and the staff is led by an amazing catering manager: Maureen O'Hanlon. This was an intimate reception of 88 guests (including me) and they danced the night away as if there were 200 guests. The dance floor was packed all night long. (with 88 guests and a full dance floor the tables looked sparse) The night could not have gone any better. Here are a couple of iPhone 3Gs video clips of the evening and set up.

Congrats to Anna & Anthony and Alison & Christopher!

Chan - Wong Wedding @ LaCentre

Hello All: This past weekend was superb. I DJ'ed a very large, classy & fun reception at LaCentre on Saturday June 20th and I also participated in the North Olmsted Relay for Life. (also on the same day)

The wedding reception at LaCentre was for Maria Wong and Daniel Chan. These two were a pure pleasure to work with. They are two of the nicest people I have ever met and were a lot of fun during the planning process. Dan & Maria invited 450 of their closest family, friends and coworkers to LaCentre for a beautiful reception....and boy was in set up.


Take a look at this quick clip:

Oh Yeah, Our Relay For Life Team won a "Silver Medal" for our efforts. I still have to confirm, but we raised between $2500.00 - $4999.00 for this great cause. Go Team! : "Keeping Up With The Jones'".

Delayed Weekend Recovery

Hello All: Okay, so it is now a week after the much anticipated weekend of June 6Th and I am still not fully recovered, or maybe that was the wedding I DJ'ed last night @ The Hyatt? Last weekend was by far one of the best and most entertaining weekends I have had in a very long time. The combination of Mason's first Tee Ball Game, my good buddy's rehearsal dinner, Wedding ceremony & reception and then the most perfect day at the cottage with my bestest friends in the whole world really made for one hell of a tiring weekend. My mind and body are still paying for all the "fun" we had. Here are some pretty quick pics from last weekend. Enjoy! I have to get ready for two more weddings this weekend. Wish me luck! Tonight @ Botanical Gardens and Sunday at the Ritz. - Be sure to party like it's 1999!

Perfect day at Chippewa Lake. (Maddox & Mason)

Weekend Anticipation! I love it!

Hello All: This upcoming weekend is going to be killer. Starting with my best friends (Dan & Rina Luzius) flying in from Seattle on Friday morning @ 6:15am. - Then it's a rehearsal dinner for one of our best friends Adam Pidcock who is marrying to the most perfect girl for Adam! Sara is definitely his match made in heaven. The wedding is on Saturday and I am helping them with their music as a thank you for Adam helping me six years ago at my wedding with the food. (Adam grew up a catering man) Then on Sunday, Denise, Mason, Maddox, Rina & Dan Luzius and I are heading southbound for some summer fun at our cottage on Chippewa Lake. Plus it's mom Mom's birthday! Yay - Cake and Ice Cream! - I love weekends like this...I can't wait. Pics to come for sure, if I remember! Enjoy your weekend everyone!
