Spencer & Christie

Without a doubt, Spencer & Christie’s wedding reception at Union Station in Tacoma, Washington, was the LARGEST reception I’ve ever been a part of! Nearly 400 guests came to celebrate these two getting hitched – just an awesome community these two have surrounded themselves with! – and to see it all come together after months of planning and preparation was beyond worth it. I seriously couldn’t be happier for Spencer & Christie; they had the celebration of a lifetime.

And I’ll never forget this night: hands down, it was the best reception I’ve ever performed at.

Dorwin & Swathy

Dorwin & Swathy couldn’t have timed it better: their Sunday afternoon wedding ceremony just happened to coincide with the first full day of sunshine in Seattle since October 2016. And the welcomed sunshine was a sign of things to come, as Dorwin & Swathy – along with their closest of friends – absolutely rocked the dance floor inside the Marina Ballroom at the Bell Harbor Conference Center in Seattle.

Seriously, check out the video above; my favorite part is around the 3:04 mark. (And I won’t spoil anything, but that clip is definitely going to make the 2017 wrap-up video.)

Tina & Michael | Tony Schwartz: Wedding MC & DJ

Christina & Michael

I’ve had a long-standing belief that the first wedding of the new year sets the tone for the rest of the year. If that’s the case, I couldn’t be more ecstatic to get going on this year’s wedding season, as Christina & Michael’s wedding reception was as good as it gets.

While the outcome of the Seahawks-Falcons playoff game earlier in the day was less than desirable, any disappointment was left at the front door as guests and vendors entered Melrose Market Studios, excited to celebrate Tina & Michael. And from the romantic, intimate ceremony to the group sing-a-long to Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” and Sparkler Send Off, everyone did just that.

Amanda & Stephen

Question: What do you do when “The Storm of the Century” threatens your wedding day?

Answer: Exactly what Amanda & Stephen did: ensure the proper precautions for worst case scenarios are accounted for, put on your wedding attire, smile big, get married, enjoy the company of your family and friends, and celebrate until the night is over!

Jasmine & Delas | Tony Schwartz: Wedding MC & DJ

Jasmine & Delas

From time to time, I get a strong inclination just from the initial consultation meeting that with the right approach, certain wedding receptions have the potential of becoming awesome, unforgettable evenings. And just from my first phone conversation with Jasmine, I knew that if her and Delas selected me as their Master of Ceremonies and DJ, their wedding reception would definitely be one of those nights.

And I’m not going to lie: I may have slightly underestimated my inclination. Jasmine & Delas’ wedding reception wasn’t just an awesome party; it’s a strong candidate for Reception of the Year. And possibly even Reception of the Decade.

Jaclyn & Mark | Tony Schwartz: Wedding MC & DJ

Jaclyn & Mark

It was a spectacularly sunny September Sunday; Jaclyn & Mark couldn’t have asked for better weather at the beautiful Laurel Creek Manor in Sumner, Washington. And I doubt they could have asked for a better celebration amongst their family and friends.

As you look at the photos captured below by the wonderfully talented Melissa Kilner, you see two best friends that are madly in love with each other. Jaclyn and Mark both have infectious smiles, and I don’t think they stopped smiling the entire night. And neither did the dancing, as guests started to find their way to the dance floor during dinner.

Greg & Janet

They met in Chelan on respective bachelor and bachelorette parties. A few months later, they were engaged; and on November 5th, an email from Janet arrived in my email inbox with the tentative wedding details. I couldn’t have been more happier or excited to make the trip all the way to Harmony Meadows, mere minutes from where Greg & Janet first met to DJ their wedding reception.

And what a truly magical, special night it was; there is no way I’ll ever forget it.

Cory & Meghan

Cory & Meghan love to throw parties. And we’re not talking your average, invite-a-few-friends-over party, we’re talking HUGE parties. The kind of parties that required bouncers. So, it was no surprise that they wanted their wedding reception at Alderbrook Resort & Spa in Union, Washington to be the best party they’ve thrown for their family and friends yet.

Mission accomplished.

Coley & Mac

Coley was an Ohio girl. Mac was a starting linebacker for the Penn State Nittany Lions. Together, they make for an awesome pairing who celebrated their wedding reception at one of my favorite destination wedding venues in the Pacific Northwest, Swiftwater Cellars at Suncadia Resort. And if you are a regular reader to the Reception Recaps section of my blog, you know all about all of the awesome wedding celebrations I’ve been a part of out there.

Well, Coley and Mac just added their wedding reception to that list.

Carden & Greg | Tony Schwartz: Wedding MC & DJ

Carden & Greg

There are two absolutely perfect nights to celebrate a wedding: New Year’s Eve and The 4th of July. And if I had to choose, I would go with The 4th of July as my pick for the perfect night for a wedding – mainly for the warm weather and fireworks. Lucky for me, Carden & Greg chose me to be their MC & DJ for their wedding reception at Chambers Bay – and it was a total blast (pun 110% intended!).

And because Greg asked – and because I try to pull out all the stops for my clients that are actively serving/have served – Carden & Greg’s wedding was the debut of my exclusive, brand new white DJ desk. You can see it in one of the photo below – it’s an absolute beauty and I cannot wait to bring it out to as many of my Puget Sound weddings as I can!
