|Roe & Regina say "I do"|
I had the pleasure to deejay Roe and Regina's wedding up at the Northstar Overlook Pavilion. Regina was absolutely radiant as were her bridesmaids in different colored bridesmaid dresses. What a cool idea! Roe and his groomsmen were looking pretty stellar as well, and they all had rattan-like shoes on that looked cool and comfortable. I love little touches that brides and grooms do to make their day very much their own. It was a large gathering of friends and family and all were very nice and made me feel very much like a guest instead of a hired hand. They came from all over and I had many great conversations with terrific people even before the ceremony.

Northstar is a destination on it's own, with shops, restaurants and a skating rink, and the Overlook Pavilion sits above the rink but seems like it is in it's own separate area as it borders a beautiful meadow and the treeline just beyond. The meadow is where the ceremony was held, and it is a beautiful backdrop for a couple's vows. Then right beside it is the expansive Pavilion area, with the large tent for dancing and dining and plenty of outdoor space for lots of guests. Roe and Regina welcomed about 200 or so guests and they all had plenty of space and enjoyed the beautiful weather and surroundings. You could probably seat many more than that if necessary. The food was delicious and the service outstanding- the people there are really top-notch. The lighting is gorgeous as night arrives, and they had a fire-ring with s'mores for those guests who still had room after dinner and cake. The whole day and evening was coordinated by Carla from Zella Events. She and her staff were so pleasant to work with! They had a detailed timeline and even coordinated via two-way radios at times. Every little detail was perfect and they were always anticipating events instead of letting events control the tempo. High praise from a DJ who likes to make sure things run smoothly.
Roe is a huge San Jose Sharks fan so we re-created the Sharks entry on the ice with the Grand Entrance. The bridal party entered to the theme from "Jaws" which segued into "Rock & Roll Part 2" by Gary Glitter... Very cool! They danced to Corrine Bailey Rae for their first dance and the dancing never stopped from there! I loved the fact that I played all kinds of different types of music and dance styles- from Salsa to the Electric Slide; from the Cha-Cha to the Cha-Cha slide. Mambos, waltzes and jitterbugs were also in the mix for this very talented crowd of dancers. This crowd came to dance and did they ever! Thanks to Regina & Roe for having me be a part of their amazing day and evening and for making me feel like a part of the family. Congrats you guys!
