Monica + Edlin @ Michaud's

Hello All: This past weekend I was back at it again. This time the reception was on the smaller side, hahaha, 355 guests and a bridal party (with sponsors included) that totaled 42. Monica and Edlin were two of the nicest people I have DJ'ed for. They were laid back, fun and definitely in love. The whole process was a pleasure.

Here are the details of the event:

Date: Saturday April 24Th, 2010
Photographer: Jose Infante
Memorable Moments: As usual, there were a few: First off, the huge bridal party was definitely a test. The introductions included Parents, Sponsors, Juniors, Bridal Party and the Bride & Groom. Second on the list: The line dancing at this reception was insane (see pic below). They sure loved their line dances. Lastly, the father's of the bride & groom also surprised the happy couple with a duet on guitar and vocals. They sang to the bride & groom about life, love, family support and happiness. It was very touching.

Now on to some pics.

Instead of my usual run down of iPhone photo's of the entire night, here is a transitional look at a huge dance floor. Michaud's Grand Ballroom.

The empty dance floor:
The Bridal Party practice: "Cleveland Shuffle"
(1/2 hour prior to the guests arrival)
The full dance floor: "Cupid Shuffle"
Congrats to Monica & Edlin. I wish you all the best!

Webster + House @ Marriott Key Center

Hello All: Okay, now it officially feels like the 2010 wedding season is in full effect. What a way to start 2010....with a bang. I had the pleasure of DJ'ing for a wonderful couple with an amazingly awesome family. The reception stage was set: Marriott Key Center and the guests were ready to party. I couldn't clear the dance floor if I tried. Everything went perfectly, well except for the fact that my iPhone died during their first dance and I could not take any more pics or video for this blog update.

Here are the details of the event:
Date: Saturday April 17Th, 2010.
Florist: Wilhelmy
Photog: Kathy & Tim Heitzman (I think)
DJ: Me, of course! Jerry Bruno Productions
Memorable Moment(s): First off, the dance floor at this reception never failed. I could have played the "C" side to any album and it would have kept the guests moving. Their guests were there to party and celebrate. It made my job easy...and fun. The father of the bride gave a very touching speech and there was also some amazing Irish Dancing thrown down that I wasn't able to capture and share (since my iPhone choked).
Their grand entrance was pretty sweet as well: They used two songs: "A Cab Ride To Kingston" by Gaelic Storm and then for the Bride & Groom only: "I'm Shipping Up To Boston" by The Dropkick Murphy's. (but only the first 46 seconds)

Here are the images I captured before my iPhone failed. Enjoy!
