Rosemary Beach Town Hall Wedding | Jack & Alex

A Rosemary Beach Town Hall wedding is one of the most intimate weddings available on the Emerald Coast. We’ve seen it laid out in just about every type of configuration. However, for Jack And Alex, they used it a bit uniquely. They started with the cocktail hour indoors and then moved everyone outdoors for dinner. After dinner and toasts, they brought everyone back indoors for dancing.

For cocktail hour, we kept the music to standards/jazz. I rarely get those types of crowds so it was nice change! I moved locations to the lawn for the dinner where the music started mellow and then gradually grew in tempo and energy. Guests were signing along and tapping there toes throughout.

Though this was a very intimate crowd of 60 people, they threw down when it was time to party inside. This venue makes it feel full which was ideal for this wedding. It wasn’t just the young kids partying either. I was actually able to get the father of the bride to do some “fist pumping”. Ha! With the weather nearly perfect, this was one of the prettiest weddings I’ve had all year long. Thanks Jack and Alex for having us!

Top 5 Wedding Toast Tips For Engaged Couples

One of the biggest wedding trends of 2016? Toasts! Lots of toasts!!! We’re seeing couples wanting anywhere from 6-10 toasts at their wedding, whereas in the last few years, we’d average between 2-3 toasters. With that in mind, we wanted to give our engaged couples our Top 5 Wedding Toast Tips to help them navigate the toasting process (remember this toasting story?).

Wedding Toast Tips

Wedding Toast Tips From the Pros

DJ Josh B and DJ Shawn, two of our associate DJs who have performed over a few hundred weddings between them and can offer tons of Wedding Toast Tips, delve into this topic on our latest video blog. Please know that we want to be sensitive to your vision for the big day, while at the same time, allowing you to leverage our years of experience. With that type of collaboration, you’ll be setting yourself up for a fantastic wedding reception. We had a recent wedding where the couple “knew their toasters” and estimated that the 10 they had on the schedule would only take about 5 minutes. We tried to encourage them with some of these tips, but at the end of the day, they wanted to proceed having all 10 in row. After 45 minutes from toaster #1, we had time for 1 dance song. The venue had a strict cut-off time which required us to turn off the amplified sound after that first dance tune. Instead of a nice landing into the Grand Exit, it was a harsh brake. We did our best to hype up the “after party” scheduled to take place at the local bar after the reception but you could see the disappointment on the guests’ faces not to mention the bridal party and our bride/groom. We have put together this video with the hope that no couple or a couples’ crowd has to go through something like that.

Sandestin Beach Club Wedding | Reagan & Robin

There’s a little gem on the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort called the Sandestin Beach Club, and A Sandestin Beach Club Wedding is one of the best ways to tie the knot on the Emerald Coast. It’s a members only club, however, in the Fall/Winter, it can be used for weddings and private events. This is now one of our favorite spots. It has an intimate feel despite the massive property size. For Reagan and Robin’s wedding this past weekend, they had a guest count of about 100 people. The ceremony took place on the beach and the cocktail hour and reception was held on the pool deck. Like clockwork, the weather turned from Summer to Fall the day prior to their wedding so the humidity was dialed back considerably from September’s heatwave.

Cake: Holy Cakes

For this venue, it’s ideal to have two entertainers. Brian (himself a DJ) assisted Josh, allowing him to get out in the crowd for announcements and make the toasts flow a little easier instead of having to run back to the booth to add music. Once the dancing kicked off, the crowd was ready to party! Josh had them dancing to just about everything he played.

Hot New First Dance Wedding Reception Song for Fall 2016

Every year you’re almost guaranteed to have one new track that makes it as that year’s “Hot New First Dance Wedding Reception Song “. As Wedding DJs, we can spot them pretty quickly. I mean, that’s part of the job right?

Hot New First Dance Wedding Reception Song

Usually, it’s almost always after a Grammy performance, which takes place in February, just before the Spring wedding season begins. I can’t prove that theory scientifically but it sure feels like it’s been that way the past few years. In 2014, it was “All Of Me” by John Legend. Last year, it was, without a doubt, Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud”. Up until a few months ago, the top contender for 2016 had been “Die A Happy Man” by Thomas Rhett. This country tune had a lot of the same elements as Ed Sheeran’s track but turned out to have enough crossover appeal that it has been used by a ton of diverse brides and grooms and not relegated to just country music lovers. If you haven’t heard it, check it out below.

But then a song came along that has been slowly gaining momentum over the last month or so. I never saw it coming to be honest. It’s categorized as a “folk” genre track but definitely appeals to the masses. This artist has had a ton of tracks placed in television shows and films like The Loft, Revenge, The Originals, Sleepy Hollow, Reckless, and DaVinci’s Demons (just to name a few). This is her first single to have such mainstream success. Have we kept the suspense going long enough? Well, you’ll have to wait a while longer and get the title/artist through the video below. Let us know if you think this has what it takes to dethrone Thomas Rhett as 2016’s wedding song of the year. Enjoy!

Kelly Green Wedding in Alys Beach | Alexa & Anthony

Kelly Green Wedding: Alys Beach, FL

One of Alys Beach’s more popular spots, Kelly Green is a perfect venue for guest counts of over 100 people. It complements the town of Alys Beach so well. Its well-manicured lawns and semi-hidden location make for a luxurious and private wedding space. This wedding was that and more.

The groom, Anthony (wearing a blue tux and diamond studded shoes), and the bride, Alexa, were stylish themselves and into the details of every aspect of the wedding. From monogrammed everything to the food to the music list to a theatrical and choreographed grand entrance/first dance, their imprint on the event to was very evident for all to see and made it truly “them”. Music-wise, this crowd was into just about everything. The party, really took off, however, when we delved deep into the hip hop genre.

The most memorable part of the reception took place at the Grand Exit. The groom surprised his beautiful bride with her wedding gift – a murdered out Phantom Rolls Royce. I don’t think the bar can be set much higher gentlemen. Her reaction was priceless. She was so shocked, happy and blown away all at once! It was the perfect ending to an amazing night.

A Destination Bud & Alley’s Wedding | Seaside, FL

Bud & Alley’s Wedding in Seaside Florida: Perfect For An Intimate Celebration

This weekend I had the pleasure of being a part of Anthony and Stephanie’s Bud & Alley’s wedding in Seaside, FL. It’s a surprisingly intimate venue, considering it is in the middle of shops on the south side of 30A, which fit the number of guests they had (40).

Venue, Coordination and Catering: Bud & Alley’s
Entertainment: DJ Josh Weck, B-Boy Productions, Inc.

The staff was excellent and very easy to work with. Both Rachel and Kathryn (event coordinators at the restaurant) made sure everything was on point, which can relieve so much stress for not just the wedding couple but the vendors as well. Of course with us being in Florida, there was a threat of rain (what else is new?). However, the permanent tent structure covering the entire outside of the venue ensured that the wedding festivities would go off without a hitch. In my opinion, this is a huge selling point for the venue!

One of the memorable moments was when Stephanie’s brother, Dave, walked in during dinner with a glistening bottle of Moët. I knew then that the night was just getting started. Music ranged from Sinatra to Yelawolf to Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes. Upon the final note of “Home” and my farewell, the guests, along with the Bride and Groom in tow, ventured upstairs to the bar at Bud & Alley’s to continue their festivities. Yet, another selling point of this venue ~ easy walk (just upstairs) for the after-party. Just about any other outside venue requires you shut down at 10PM due to the noise ordinance. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your day Anthony and Stephanie.

If you are looking for an elegant spot on 30A to have your reception, consider this little gem, Fonville Press! Located in Alys Beach, this venue has a lot to offer including super easy access and a unique layout that makes tailoring to taste, a fun task. This particular venue is ideal for an Alys Beach wedding with under 100 guests. We got a chance to debut our new plush, vinyl all-white DJ Facade. This couldn’t have been more perfect to complement the all-white décor that is infamous in Alys Beach.

The heat was out in spades and its ugly second cousin, humidity was presenting itself to be a formidable foe for the hairdos of the day. The sky was the clearest of blue and cloudless, making for a rain-less wedding, which was imperative considering the ceremony /reception area was outdoors with no tent. After a perfect ceremony, we seamlessly moved into an upbeat cocktail that set the tone for the rest of the evening. Great music paired with our romantic café style lights courtesy of B-Boy Rentals and Event Design was the perfect kick off to an intimate reception.

A Destin Emerald Grande Wedding with Erica and Richard

Destin’s Emerald Grande…a great venue for a wedding.

I had been looking forward to Erica and Rich’s Destin Emerald Grande wedding for a long time, and needless to say I was NOT disappointed! From the moment their guests entered the reception ballroom, they were singing and dancing to the music. And speaking of the ballroom, it was decorated gorgeously, according to Rich and Erica’s vision. Partnering with our rental company for up lighting, we were awash in a very gorgeous shade of purple.

Erica’s family requested Chaldean music, a kind of ethnic folk music with Arabic decent, which was a first for me. I had a blast mixing it in with more contemporary dance music. To top it off, Rich & Erica got one of our party packs which consisted of glow wands, beads, and glow glasses for their guests to play with on the dance floor! I was exhausted in the best way possible after all was said and done.

Courtney and Chris |Sandestin Bayview Room

Sandestin Bayview Room: What an Awesome Venue!

I refer to it as one of our second homes – the Sandestin Bayview Room and Terrace is one of the most modular wedding venues on the Emerald Coast and we seem to have an event here just about every weekend. The flexibility that the space offers came in handy this weekend. If you haven’t checked out our venue tours at this property, it may be worth a look. We have Part 1 and Part 2. Hurricane Hermine was looming but never seriously threatened our event. The humidity, however, was intense and with rain slated for later in the evening, Courtney made the final call to move the reception indoors. We still had the ceremony outside and the cocktails were an indoor/outdoor combo. In the Bayview room, we had the entire room set for dancing. The dinner was held in the lobby entry way which worked perfectly for the guest count on hand..

Destination Weddings in Sandestin Florida. What more could a Wedding DJ want?

This crowd may qualify as one of my best of the year. They were ready to dance and had the entire room (minus the cupcakes) allotted for just that. With zero formalities after dinner (no cake cut, bouquet or garter), we got into the dancing very quickly. Being from Kentucky and a large contingent from St. Louis, Courtney and Chris brought two great destination crowds together. Folks from those parts of the country love to have a good time and are really nice people to boot. 90s and 2000s pop, hip hop and R&B went over really well and, of course, with so many being from St. Louis, there were more than a few Nelly tracks played. I even get a chance to show them The Wobble.

The floor was so packed that we went an extra 30 minutes of overtime. Best wishes to Courtney and Chris! Thanks for including us.
