Casey & Kody

Kody is a tech for a orthotics and prosthetics company, who I clicked with while talking about sports and our favorite pairs of Air Jordans. Casey is his stunningly beautiful bride, who shared some hilarious stories of her experiences as a junior high school teacher, and patiently listened to Kody and me talk sports and Air Jordans. Together, they hosted one of the finest weddings I’ve every been a part of at Laurel Creek Manor in Sumner, Washington – every detail (food, drinks, the Mirror Booth, desserts, dancing, and more!) was designed with their guests enjoyment in mind – capped off with a surprise fireworks show that was kept secret from their family and friends until the very end.

Kyle & Jamie

Kyle & Jamie’s wedding reception last night was absolute MAGIC last night. There’s a moment at every wedding reception where I begin to sense it – in this case, their Wedding Party Introduction sequence which set the tone for the rest of the night – and then there’s the moment where I first feel it. For me, it happened during their First Dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Tenerife Sea”, where the entire room sat still, just watching Kyle & Jamie gracefully glide on the dance floor.

“So in love, so in love.”

I couldn’t help but mouth those lyrics as I watched on from my DJ booth. At that moment, I knew it – despite the July heat that just wouldn’t go away – we were about to have an epic dance floor experience. Which is precisely what Kyle & Jamie desired.

Joe & Audrey

There are some weddings so awesome, so amazing that they leave me with an absolute loss for words when they have came to their conclusion.

And as I sit here and try to come up with the words to describe this wedding, I’m exactly that: at a loss for words. From start to finish, it couldn’t have been any more perfect. (And speaking of finishes, it was absolutely nailed by my team! My lighting designer, Christian, did magic with our four moving head setup; and my video guru, Matt, was in the perfect position to capture the final hurrah for Audrey & Joe. Watch it in the highlight video above; I’ve replayed it more times than I can count – it’s that good.)

Aaron & Kelly

Unique musical selections: that would be the number one thing I loved about Aaron & Kelly’s wedding ceremony and reception at Historic 1625 Place in Tacoma. Not one song on their list of ceremony and reception selections below would be found on a suggestions list for any of the given moments. Yet, they all worked perfectly for the moment they were selected for.

My favorite selection, is without a doubt, their First Dance to Chris Stapleton’s “More of You”, which features the perfectly written chorus lyrics that are so simple, yet so sweet. Which was absolutely perfect for Aaron & Kelly.

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.
