Story of the Save the Day DJ 4/12/08


Saturday I received a phone call from Steve the brother of Angelica a frantic bride without a DJ.  The Bride and Groom realized this after the ceremony was over and the reception was about to begin. Angelica asked Steve to see if he could find a DJ willing to save the day. Steve called me and I said yes, but before I got off the phone with Steve I had asked him to get a piece of paper to get some information about the day like Bride and Grooms names First Dance Song, Father Daughter Song and any other special songs along with some kind of timeline I loaded my van got into my tux and away I went to the Atascadero Lake Pavilion . I arrived in around 30 minutes and started playing music. It was the first time in all my years of Djing that I have ever experienced this last minute situation. I new I had an early gig on Sunday morning to start at 6am but this is my life. Just to let you know this DJ was from out of the area. I know anyone from Central Coast Wedding Professionals would have done the same thing and it makes me appreciate who we are.

Kyle and Darcy Locke Wed at Beautiful Cambria Pines Lodge


kyle-and-darcy.JPG

I knew this day was going to be special and that the stars were all aligned for Kyle and Darcy Locke. I started to set up the reception sound system, when Rich Peterson of Picture Magic walked into the ballroom to get a trial run on the slide show that Patrick Brady (Father of the Bride) had put together. Rich Peterson said, Penny Beaver (harpist extraordinaire) was getting ready to play. I thought they didn’t tell me Penny was going to be here so I went to find her. Penny told me that she was playing for another small wedding at 4:30 and I knew Kyle and Darcys wedding wasn’t until 5:30 since I was going to play a song by penny anyway I went to Pat and Cathy and asked if they would like to have Penny play, live. They were ecstatic, and the bride as she came down the Isle was surprised and elated. As Darcy came down the Isle her dress from The Bridal Boutique was spectacular, She was definitely the glowing bride.  Marcia and Michael from Wiz Photography had their hands full with all the pictures the families wanted. It was definitely a picture-fest but that is was its all about capturing the moment and families gathering together and spending time and reminiscing. The bridal party entered to Will Smith’s song Gettin Jiggy With It, Anita, Michael, Erin, Lindsey, Mark, Pam, Brianna, Jason, the Matron of Honor Shannon, and The Best Man Zach. Kyle and Darcy (The Bride And Groom) entered to Tim McGraw s Its your love and hit the dance floor for their first dance as Husband and Wife using Elvis Presleys can’t Help Falling In Love. The staff at Cambria Pines Lodge were ready to serve the meal and did an excellent job keeping everyone happy with their great service and wonderful food. Ricardo and Susana of Elegant Details did all the flowers and other decorations for the wedding ceremony and reception and it was incredibly done as in their name Elegant Detail. After dinner the party was on and non-stop with dancing the rest of the night. Thanks again Kyle and Darcy congratulations.

 It was such a beautiful night at the Still Water Vineyard, a fairly new winery with one of the most beautiful settings in the Paso Robles area now world renown for its wines. Ryan and Tessa Betz were married overlooking the vineyard.  Tessa’s Cousin, Brent Pinkin was the Officiant over the ceremony who did an excellent job of telling stories of the two, making it so that family and friends had a better insight of the couples past. We all knew their future was going to be amazing together. Pat Pinkin the Mother of the Bride did all the flowers, and they were so perfectly done. The bridesmaids and Groomsman helped with last minute decorations for the event. I announce the bridal party as the entered to U-2s song Beautiful Day, Andrea, Kelly, Patrick, Emily, Raymond, Coral, Coondo, Jenifer, and Kevin the best man and then Anna, and Brian, Tessa’s sister and brother in-law. Then came the Bride and Groom,Ryan and Tessa.  With the great wines flowing the bridal party was taking pictures all over the grounds including the beautiful vineyards. I can’t wait to see the pictures provided by Ashley and Shelby of  Blake Photography i’m sure they will be stunning. The food tasted great as usual Mark and Bridget out did themselves from Hospitality Catering. It was time for the toasts, and Kevin and Anna shared there past memories, with Anna talking about Her and Tessa’s sisterhood. They have a very close relationship. Ryan and Tessa danced their first dance to 311s Love Song and then Tessa danced with her dad to Heartlands i loved Her First. What a wonderful event to be a part of and such really nice people. They ended the night dancing but I think if they could have the party would have never ended.  It seem everyone had a great time.

Thanks again Ryan and Tessa and God Bless

The caterers were working hard to get the meal prepared while the guests had appetizers and Peachy Canyon Wine’s like Old School House Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon.

 Jeremy and Caroline Nisse were married on May 11th 2007 at the beautiful Edna Valley Vineyards in San Luis Obispo, California at 5pm ceremony preformed by Reverend Charley Reed . The couple were joined by their parent’s friends and loved ones. Tina Hoppe made sure all was perfect as was the look of the venue for their day. Penny Beavers played harp as the processional proceeded down the isle and Del from Entertainment Now provided the sound and family and guest could hear everything that was said. It was a day of pure joy.It’s a lot different when you’re the Father of the Groom instead of just the Disc Jockey for the wedding.After the ceremony we proceeded over to The Embassy Suites Hotel, for the reception, where in the atrium we had hors d’oeurves and they were delicious. We then proceeded in but just after we had the bridal party announced. Not often I get to announce here they are my son and daughter Mr. and Mrs. Well I guess maybe only 3 times in my life but this was the first. After every one was seated I made an introduction toast then dinner was served. The room looked magnificent. The chair covers provide by Taylor Rental Company look great. Taffy and her daughter from All Traditions came and provided the manpower to decorate. Jodie from Bloom N’ Grow did an amazing job and all the flowers from the ceremony and reception. Once again Del and Kevin my best friends from Entertainment Now Disc Jockey Service helped me be at two places at once. I couldn’t have done it with out you guys. Kathy Clark was everywhere taking pictures she is just too much fun. I have known Kathy for over 20 years. Thanks girlfriend. Alex Caballero did a slideshow at dinner for my kids that was just amazing. Showing them from childhood to engagement. Alex and his son from Caballero Video also did an amazing job and were so fun to work with. Time to cut the cake provided by The Cakery, Yarrow Morse out did her self again. And then it was time to party and we did. Thanks guys. I’m tired now I’m going to bed.

It’s been such a wonderful ceremony proceeded by a cocktail hour before dinner. April Wise and her assistant were snapping pictures of everyone but being very discreet not to seem to posed. As the guest entered into the banquet hall to find there seats the bride and groom had request me to play soft rock music as we awaited their arrival. When they arrived and entered they went into their first dance as husband and wife to the sounds of Shania Twain From This Moment and it was a perfect song for this couple. Dinner was superb. Russell the best man started the toasts and did an excellent job along with Rachell and a few others, we cut the cake and got into the dancing and the floor was full all night long. That was a dancing crowd even for a Sunday I was impressed. Good luck guys. Hope to see you soon.
