After a couple of long exhausting weeks , I finally have the chance to update the blog. As any good DJ knows, working back to back weddings can be a lot of work not only the weekend of, but especially the planning and preparation the week leading up to the big weekend. My first thoughts is always "how am I gonna conserve energy enough for both weddings?" As some of you know, this definitely isn't my first back to back, only the first blog I'm writing about it. In the end when its all said and done, its just like anything else...as long as you're prepared and have a game plan, everything works out positive and smoothly. Naturally, its the second wedding that Im always afraid of that Ill be drained for, but I had just the same amount of energy for both. I think what really gets me through tough weekends is knowing and understanding the responsibility that goes along with DJing weddings...knowing that there is 0 room for error....knowing that you are the MC aka master of ceremonies and you are in charge of the timing....knowing the fate of those person's guest having fun and dancing depends 100% on you. Thats how I draw my energy when its been depleted from the night before, from the sheer fact that this is someones most important day of their life and its partially in my hands. Not trying to toot my own whistle by any means, but I feel that what really sets us apart is the pride we take in what we do, our effort to always improve, and the extra mile we're willing to go for our couples.
Michelle and Aaron's wedding went phenomenal! Everything from the weather being perfect, their fathers giving extremely touching welcoming speeches, and the hall being gorgeous made the night unforgettable. Mike and I even got to have an EDM hour(for those that don't know, electronic dance music) at the end which was a hugeeee hit! It was so fun I almost wanted to put the decks on auto-pilot and join the group! We also got to launch confetti cannons which we definitely may need to invest in now...cant wait to put the clips in the new promo video.
The next day I was alone on this one so I knew I had to bring the energy with me downtown. Emily and Nick had their wedding at a cool, hip bar in the west loop that had a private upstairs dining area with a rustic yet very classy feel. Food was 5 star material. This one was another non-stop night.....I was afraid the floor was gonna give, no joke. Couldn't of asked for a better crowd!
So all an all another good week as wedding season slowly begins to wind down but far from over. Again, a big thanks to both my couples for being so nice and for trusting us at RSD to make your wedding great! Over an out
