Behind the Board: The Unity Sand Ceremony

Behind the Board: The Unity Sand Ceremony

I have had the privilege of performing at MANY ceremonies over the last twelve years. Once the couple of honor have chosen their specific songs, all that’s left is a rehearsal to get a feel for how the ceremony itself will go, followed by the ceremony itself. As the DJ, it’s my job to make sure that the songs are played at the proper time and faded out when necessary. I meet with the officiant performing the ceremony beforehand so that we can discuss cues and the overall flow of the ceremony. I have the officiant test the microphone that will be used and leave it to their discretion as to how loud the microphone will be during the ceremony (often with an assist from any guests within earshot at that time).
