As a mobile DJ we get to experience and share in the biggest days of our clients lives. When it comes to Ashley this is true on so many levels. Ten years ago Ashley’s sister Angie was married and I was there. At the time Ashley was just a fourteen year old little girl. When her sister Hope graduated high school I was the DJ for the graduation party. Ashley graduated High School and I was again the DJ. I can still see her and her friends crying as they said goodbye to each other that night. When Ashley was a Maid of Honor in Hope’s wedding last year I was the Disc Jockey and Master of Ceremonies. On November 8th she walked down the aisle no longer a little girl but a beautiful bride.
Needless to say, I was honored to be asked to provide my services for Ashley’s wedding reception. We met to plan their reception at Cheeseburger in Paradise in Eastgate. Jamie lived in St. Louis and while I had heard all about him we had never met. I was impressed with him from the start of the meeting. I could tell quickly how in love he was with Ashley and how he wanted this day to be perfect for them. They were both excited about the big day but a bit tired from all that had gone into planning it. As the plan began to unfold for their reception we were all pumped about the creativity, the flow and for Ashley ….the dancing!
They ceremony and reception were both in The Grand Ballroom of the Madison in Covington KY. I provided sound for musicians from Jamie’s family. They did a great job. “Here comes The Bride” on guitar was unique and fantastic.
After the ceremony concluded Jamie and Ashley were whisked off for pictures by the staff of Images by Daniel Michael. Joyce with Bambino Productions captured all the video footage. The guest enjoyed a classy and upbeat cocktail hour until the bride and groom were ready to party. After a spirited introduction of the wedding party into the room for the reception Jamie took the microphone. That is where the video I captured with my camera begins….enjoy.
