DJ Danielle Got Married!
Check out the teaser video link below!
It was my turn to be on the other side of the turntables!
I am a wedding DJ and YES I did my own music and introductions!!!
Having been a wedding DJ for 17 years I needed to do something a little
different and my Husband being a concert lighting director was all in
for some fun too!
Baby blue authentic 1970's tuxes.. platform shoes with goldfish in the heels (that glowed)!!! The girls were in gogo
boots and mini
dresses and the guests came in full garb too!! It was SOO much fun!
For the ceremony the guys came in to "Another one bites the dust" and
my dad and I did the bump at the end of the isle to "Heaven must have
sent you". A 10' X 20' backdrop of Studio 54 was at the front of the
room and mirror balls perched on the pillars were our little touches to
have the ceremony fit in with the theme. "We are family" Blared as we
were announced husband and wife and danced back down the isle!
Actual 70's disco 45 records were the table markers. For our
introduction into the reception I did all the announcements from the
hallway with the wireless mic while Barry Whites, "Your my first, my
last my everything" welcomed us into the room. We started our first
dance to "Groovy kind of love" surrounded by our friends and family. My
mother, who is also a DJ, Did all of the other announcements for the
evening making it all the more personal.
For the Father daughter dance I surprised my dad and changed into my
mother's prom dress that she had worn back in 1976. A baby blue satin
slip dress that my grandmother had hand made.
This would be the second
evening that my dad would get to dance with that dress.. "I loved her
first" played as we swayed on the dance floor.
The evening continued on and the genres of music changed from old to
new. I changed one last time into a wedding dress that I happened to
pick up a church tag sale for $1. Yes, a dollar. Some people like that
dress even better than my first. I had not planned on changing but a
guest had spilled red wine down my back of my first dress so I just
threw this other wedding gown on. It all came together perfectly. I
only happened to grab it out of my closet while heading over to the
ceremony site.. (all things happen for a reason!)
People danced and drank and partied right up until the end!
husband and I boogied
"The last dance" closed out the most amazing
evening of my life.
My advice: Make it your day,
do what makes you happy
and don't forget to HAVE FUN!
