Musings from Behind the Board
I've been in the wedding industry for just over 14 years. Imagine that; 14 years primarily dominated by wedding receptions. When couples are searching for entertainment for their weddings, they're looking for someone that has experience doing weddings. There are...
Your date is set. You’ve chosen your reception site and now, you’ve secured your DJ. Now what?
When you love what you do, you take that challenge and you surround yourself with people who have done it themselves or are currently experiencing the same journey that you’re embarking on. You remind yourself of why you’re doing what you do and you try to remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day. You remind yourself to be patient, yet optimistic.
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).
