Luke & Monica

What a beautiful Sunday it was for Luke & Monica’s wedding celebration at Willows Lodge in Woodinville, Washington! And let me tell ya: these two were made for each other as both shared a passion for video games, an industry they both work in. Luke is an Australian gentleman from Melbourne, and Monica has such a unique personality; her charisma instantly draws you in.

(Also, Monica comes from a family that has trusted me with serving as the Master of Ceremonies and DJ for two daughters now. And I’m sure when it comes time to plan their son’s wedding, I’ll get the call! Thank you, Greg & Karen!)

And speaking of Greg, he and Monica got the party started with their surprise medley during their Father-Daughter Dance. It was well done, and I’m sure a moment  this Father & Daughter duo will never forget. Greg, you’re a pretty cool dad. And the end of the routine was perfect as it brought guests out of their seats and on to the dance floor, which stayed consistently active for two hours and change on this wonderful Sunday evening. (As I’ve said before, if the DJ knows how to program and keep the energy up, people will dance on a Sunday.)

So, congratulations to Luke & Monica! It was an honor to serve you; thanks for a day of memories I won’t soon forget.
