Adam & Rany

Classic. Elegance. Rustic. Those were the three words Adam and Rany used to describe the vision for their wedding reception at The Pickering Barn in Issaquah, Washington. Add in a mix of traditional Cambodian music and contemporary American music, and the result is one heck of a good time that brings two sides together to celebrate as one big giant family!

(And if you’ve never been a part of a Cambodian wedding, you’re missing out! What fun and energy! I can’t wait to see Pixel Dust Productions highlight video!)

You won’t find it in the Musical Selections below, but there was one presentation option that created a very special moment from Adam & Rany. Called Messages From Home, a couple of Adam & Rany’s friends that were unable to make it to the wedding reception had called my voicemail a few days in advance and left a touch message for our guests of honor. I took those recordings and played them back after the formal toasts as a surprise to Adam & Rany. It’s always a great moment and a nice way to include those that can’t make it, despite really wanting to be there.

Congratulations Adam & Rany! Thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding day; it was an honor to serve as your Master of Ceremonies and DJ. You two are kind and very generous, I loved working with you. And thank you for making my first venture with traditional Cambodian music a pleasant one.
