Today we are highlighting Destination Wedding DJ Heidi Jade who recently was our headlining entertainer at the destination wedding of Grace and Danyel. The ceremony and reception took place at the Hilton Sandestin in Destin, FL. When asked what their ideal DJ looked like, their reply was “carefree and fun.” We then had them describe their ultimate wedding reception to which they said “party of a lifetime”.
Assigning their wedding DJ was a no-brainer. We knew Heidi would fit the bill perfectly for this wedding. Her easy-going demeanor and impressive mixing skills would be sure to amaze not only the bride and groom but their 65 guests in attendance as well. We utilized one of our DJ assistants so it would be easy for Heidi to coordinate and get out from behind the decks and into the middle of the deck for the Grand Entrance announcements.
One of the best parts of a destination wedding is that you have your closest family and friends in attendance. This usually means they have no problem letting loose and having a good time. Grace rated her crowd as a 9 on a scale of 1-10 (10 being complete party animals). The love that these guests had for the bride and groom could be felt immediately and they lived up to the party rating.
From the moment the open dancing started, Grace set the tone and danced the entire evening. Her guests followed suit and the party was officially on! With some of their guests coming from New Orleans, Zydeco and Cajun music were on the request list as well as some of the popular line dances like “Cupid Shuffle” and “The Wobble”. These were the formality song choices:
- Grand Entrance (Bridal Party): “I Gotta Feelin” by Black Eyed Peas
- Grand Entrance (Bride/Groom): “Everything” by Michael Bublé
- First Dance: “1000 Years” (Christina Perri Cover) by Boyce Avenue
- Father/Daughter Dance: “Butterfly Kisses” by Bob Carlisle
- Mother/Son Dance: “What A Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong
- Cake Cut: “How Sweet It is” by James Taylor
