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.

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.

Adina & Mark

After nearly a decade of DJing weddings, one thing has always remained true: I never feel like I’m performing the same wedding twice. I’m fortunate to work with some awesome couples who want to stay away from what is the perceived standard of a wedding reception. Adina & Mark is one such couple, as they heavily, heavily, heavily featured the 80s throughout their wedding reception.

And I’m not going to lie: Adina & Mark’s wedding reception was one of the most refreshing dance floor sets I have DJ’d in a while. I enjoyed myself immensely as we flipped through everything 80s: from Pop to Rock to New Wave, and everything in between. And their guests loved it – most were Adina & Mark’s friends – and the objective was simple: give everyone the perfect date night out, sans the kids.

Mission: Accomplished.

Bryan & Andrea

As I sit here and struggle to put Andrea & Bryan’s wedding reception in words, only one word comes to mind: perfection. And I know, it might seem like a cliché word here on my Real Weddings blog, but I can’t stop thinking about what went down last night, July 4, 2015, at the beautiful Laurel Creek Manor in Sumner, Washington. From start to finish, it was perfection. And while sparkler exits are great, you can’t beat having your own personal fireworks show to end the night. God Bless America.
