High School Prom DJ, DJ Charles: Crestview High 2017

It’s crazy to think but we’ve been working with Crestview High School for 9 years now.  When B-Boy Productions, Inc decided to add High School Prom DJ services to our repertoire in the Florida Panhandle, they were our very first one. This year’s Prom 2017 dance was held at the Destin Community Center. We had our resident school dance DJ, Charles, there to rock it out while our sister company, B-Boy Rentals and Event Design, handled the lighting. The dance floor immediately filled once “Passionfruit” was played early on. One other big notable track of the night was “Peek A Boo” by Lil Yachty. For the complete playlist, see below.

Baker FL Wedding DJ Brian B | Chelsea and Jesse

When you think of a wedding on the Emerald Coast, a Baker FL wedding probably isn’t one of the first things that comes to mind. But it should. I was honored to be the Baker FL Wedding DJ of choice at Camp Retreat, an amazing venue that features a barn which can fit upwards of 200-300 people. This came in useful since we had over 250+ folks in attendance. Chelsea is the cousin of one of our sales associates and wedding directors, Christen Cowgill, which made the event all the more fun and personal.

Florida Barn Wedding Ceremony

 

The ceremony location was a small walking jaunt from the barn and overlooked a lake that created a stunning look!  They handmade the arbor and brought in old school pews to complete the setting. The weather was perfect — not too hot, not too cold and more importantly VERY LOW humidity. Graeme officiated and knocked it out of the park. Musically, the ceremony choices were eclectic. We used some Bethel Instrumental selections from the album “Without Words” for prelude and family/wedding party entrances. The bride came down the aisle to “A Thousand Years” (Piano Guys version) and the wedding party exited to “Can’t Stop The Feeling” by Justin Timberlake. How about these doors?

Wedding Ceremony Barn Door Decor

Chelsea (the bride) and I had some great discussions about her and Jesse’s (the groom) vision for their reception. They literally gave me the reigns with one directive, “play amazing music”. That was it.  While I am honored with their trust, it always is a bit daunting at a wedding because of the diverse cultures and age ranges not to mention other “day of” factors – family dynamics, weather, etc. From the time the reception started, it was on! The crowd was seriously ready to throw down. I took one look at Chelsea jamming out during dinner and I knew I was on the right track.

Once the dancing started, tit packed out pretty quickly!  I could’ve played the Hokey Pokey and it would’ve gone off (disclaimer: I would never play that song – ha). It was all over the map musically (in one stretch I went from Led Zeplin to Luke Bryan to Mo Money Mo Problems) and the crowd ate every song up.

Wedding at Bud and Alley’s, Seaside with DJ Dan Davis

Brenna and Alexis’ (his name is French, pronounced Alex-see) wedding at Bud and Alley’s, Seaside, FL was an absolute blast and couldn’t have happened on a more perfect Spring day! With both families coming from Alabama and France, there was an awesome mix of cultural heritage and style.

Wedding at Bud and Alley's, Seaside

One of the most memorable moments was when one of Brenna’s friends, Mary-Claire, gave a special acapella vocal performance.  She is a trained opera singer which was a wonderful touch to the already elegant evening. After the sun went down, the party turned up, and the crowd danced until the witching hour!

    • Grand Entrance (Wedding Party): “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars
    • Grand Entrance (Bride/Groom): “The Way You Make Me Feel” by Michael Jackson
    • First Dance: “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne
    • Father/Daughter Dance: “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack

    • Cake Cut: “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz
    • Bouquet Toss: “Somebody To Love” by Queen
    • Last Dance: “Don’t Stop Believin” by Journey

Depending on how my creative planning appointment goes with my clients, I may suggest a somewhat unique ending to the night instead of just playing a last dance song. Brenna and Alexis loved it when I pitched them the idea. Here’s how it went down: I put the bride and groom at the center of the dance floor and had the wedding party, family and friends form a circle around them. I always look to include guests that have not been on the floor all night, assuring them I’m not going to make them do anything embarrassing or cheesy. I told everyone to look to their left, then look to their right, and explained that today there are two families becoming one (which is why we were in one circle with the bride and groom in the center). I asked everybody to link hands, arms, shoulders, whatever. I then asked them two questions: If you could say anything to the bride and groom right now, would you tell them that you love them? (Yes!) Would you tell them you are excited for them to take the first steps of the rest of their lives together? (Yes!) By that time, I had already maneuvered myself back behind the decks and said, “Well, if those answers are true, I am willing to bet that there is one other thing you’d like to tell them,” and I immediately hit play on “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey. The crowd always goes nuts when that happens (and this crowd was no exception). I asked them to sing along. When the end of the song came up, right before “Don’t stop believing / hold on to that feeling,” I prompted everyone that I wanted a big finale, that I wanted everyone to hear them back home where they came from singing, then prompted a cheer for the bride and groom at the end.  For this crowd, it was a perfect way to end the night.

Emerald Coast Top Salon 2017 Fashion Event | #bboygivesback

We’ve been involved with the Emerald Coast Top Salon event since its inception back in 2011. I (Brian B), personally, feel honored to have DJ’d 3 out of the 6 events (including the last 2 consecutive years). It’s a unique event in that they select a handful of local salons to participate and “battle” one another. Each salon has a charity they are supporting. The Emerald Coast Top Salon 2017 battle is fairly simple: Take one person (of the salon’s choosing) and do a complete make-up (hair, make-up, clothing, etc.). The winning salon’s charity is awarded a substantial cash donation.

The 2017 event was held at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort and Spa in the Emerald Ballroom on April 7, 2017. Over 600 people were in attendance to see 14 salons battle it out and see their models walk the runway. Pure and Couture Salon won “Fan Favorite”, Southern Roots Salon and Spa won the “Judges’ Pick award” and the grand prize, the 2017 “Top Salon” was Avantgarde Salon Spa. This was Avantgarde 4th time winning the event and 2nd consecutive win. Their benefiting charity was Others of Destin, Inc.

Emerald Coast Top Salon 2017

Runway tracks were as follows:

  • Volume One Salon: “Get Me Bodied” by Beyonce
  • Traveling Chic: “Confident” by Demi Lovato
  • The Posh Daisy Salon Spa: “Live Like You Are Loved” by Hawk Nelson
  • The Kat House Hair Studio: “Pound The Alarm” by Nicki Minaj
  • The Cutting Room Salon and Spa: “Vivrant Thing” by Q-Tip
  • Spa Lala Day Spa and Salon: “Layla” by Eric Clapton
  • Southern Roots Salon and Spa: “American Woman” by The Guess Who
  • Serenity by the Sea Spa: “Me Too” by Meghan Trainor
  • Pure & Couture Salon: “Something Just Like This (Vanity X Kevin Peels Remix)” – The Chainsmokers & Coldplay
  • project:STYLE salon: “U Got the Look” by Prince
  • Lux Solis Aveda Salon & Spa: “Girl On Fire” by Alicia Keys
  • La Renaissance Salon: “Can’t Stop The Feeling” by Justin Timberlake
  • Avantgarde Salon Spa: “24K” by Bruno Mars
  • As You Like It Salon and Spa: “Finally (Roman Hunter Remix)” by CeCe Peniston

DJ Brian B spun the pre-event music setting a high-energy tone with an open format.  There were 4 intermissions between the 14 salons that became “booty breaks” with attendees jumping on to the catwalk and dancing it up.

This was by far the most successful showcase in this event’s six year history.  Looking forward to including this event in our 2018 #bboygivesback plans.

Spring Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort Wedding Entertainment | DJ Brian B

We Love Providing Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort Wedding Entertainment…especially for great couples.

This past weekend we were back at one of our favorite venues for a Spring Wedding – Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort for Cindy and Chris’ wedding. When you’re providing Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort Wedding entertainment and handling the activities for such a great couple, you want to be sure everything is top notch.

I (Brian B) feel like I have known Cindy forever. We probably chatted at least once a month from the time she booked with us up until the wedding day. I love those types of clients. They actually were already married (Chris is in the military) so this celebration was for family and friends.

Cindy had the complete B-Boy experience. Beyond what Sandestin provides, we covered everything else except for floral and photography. You can’t put a price on having our entire team there. The chemistry with our crew working together is umatched.

When we started the planning process, the collaboration with Cindy and Chris was effortless. They wanted to do as many unique things that we could come up with so we did a LOT of them – from bride and groom trivia, to the anniversary countdown, to the garter switch to a celebrity sighting and grand exit!

New B-Boy Entertainment Option: DJ Furniture

For years, it bothered us. Couples would be spend good money on flowers, linens and other decor items to have a certain aesthetic for the wedding of their dreams.  Then, here we come as the DJ and we’re presented with a 6′ banquet table to set our gear on.  We did our best to mask our cables and gear with a “facade” to present a polished and clean appearance and from the guest point of view, it looked pretty clean but there wasn’t a wow factor.

It also felt much like a kid who hides all their toys under their bed when they know their parents are coming in to do a room inspection or an adult who throws all their clutter in the closet when guests come over. It may appear you’ve pulled one over on them, but inside you know it’s not how you want it to be.  This was the picture (below) that sealed the deal for us that we needed to be better. Making a clean and professional work station is part of what we constantly strive for so now we’ve added it as a New B-Boy Entertainment Option.

New B-Boy Entertainment Option:

The photographer took a picture from our angle of our entertainers and while we love the excitement and look of both of them, we could NEVER use this picture in any of our marketing because it just didn’t sit well with us. It looked messy. Again, the client and guests couldn’t see it from their vantage point but we could. Bottom line, our clients deserved better.

We worked with some designers on some DJ specific furniture to really take our presentation to the next level.  We’ve put together a promo video to showcase it off to you.

Currently, these pieces are only available in our Florida and NYC locations (sorry CA clients). If you’re interesting in ordering a piece for your event, contact us today.  They are in limited supply and booked on a first come, first serve basis.  In our Florida market, we are the only company who offers this.  Have your event stand out from the rest!

Brian B Entertains as Wedding DJ at the Emerald Grande Destin Harborview Room

This year I (Brian B) have been booked more and more as a destination event DJ across the country and abroad while growing our New York City operations. When opportunities now come to perform on the Emerald Coast, I relish them. Saturday was no exception. I got back to our Florida regional office performing as a Wedding DJ at the Emerald Grande Destin in the Harborview Room. The Spring weather was exceptional (very little to no humidity). Paired with the amazing Chris Alvarado who handled the ceremony and cocktail hour music, the entertainment was on another level. For an intimate group of 50 guests, this was an extreme musical treat all night and they were blown away. It’s been a few years since I personally worked at the Emerald Grand. One of the things that impressed me the most about the venue is their “pro” client and vendor approach. Cindy and her team couldn’t have been more nice and accommodating to every request of the vendors and the client. In the event industry, this is something that isn’t as common as one would think. Kudos to the Emerald Grande and their team.

One of the things I now appreciate more than ever is that guests were asked to be “present” and not take any photos at the event. This allowed them to soak in every bit of the wedding experience. I honored their request as well and took my picture pre-event. I brought in our plush white facade which accents that room perfectly. With our clean Bose speaker set-up and production lighting, the event was every bit what the bride and groom, Jenny and Greg, had dreamed it would be and more.

Defining Moments Wedding & Events of 30A

Heather Archdeacon-Williams, owner of Defining Moments Weddings and Events

I (Brian) have known and worked with Heather Archdeacon-Williams, who is the principal owner of the company, for over 10 years now.  Shawn Frady, our Florida General Manager, was able to sit down with her for a little Q&A for you all to get to know her better.

SF: Tell me how you got your start in the private event business and catch us up to present day?

HAW: I graduated from Florida State University, with a BA in Mass Media Communications.  For my entire Senior year, I had the opportunity to intern with the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.  During this time, I worked in Entertainment and then Guest Relations.  As part of my job in Guest Relations, I had the chance to work with Disney Special Activities to schedule VIP Tour Guides and tours.  During this time, I was exposed to special events, working corporate park buy-outs overnight.  Between corporate events and VIP tours, I fell in love with special events and the planning & coordination that went alongside of it.  I knew that special events was where I wanted to be.

After graduating from FSU, I worked for 3 years in ticketing and house management for all sections of fine arts in Tallahassee.  I loved it, but always felt like the ultimate destination for me was in weddings.  I applied for a job at the Cottage Rental Agency in Seaside, FL and was given a job offer as I was in route back to Tallahassee.  Not knowing anyone in this area (but captivated by the area), I picked up my life and moved within 3 weeks and was with them for 7 years as the Director of Weddings & Special Events.  Following my time in Seaside, I started my own wedding and special event planning company.  As of the beginning of April, Defining Moments Wedding & Events just celebrated our 5-year anniversary in business.  I absolutely love it!  I can’t image not being in weddings.

SF: Geographically, what areas do you cover?

HAW: I still do quite a few weddings in the Seaside and surrounding area, but now I work all up and down Highway 30A, as well as into Sandestin and Destin.

SF: Describe your ideal client. What are some characteristics you look for?

HAW: I love clients who can see the bigger picture.  It’s not just one day in their life but starting the rest of their life together. The little details are very important and can help personalize a wedding so much, but I think if a client can experience and enjoy the process, while still seeing the bigger picture, then they are going to enjoy it all so much more. This is the beginning of a new chapter of their life.

SF: What is Defining Moments Wedding & Events’ calling card?  What makes you stand out?

HAW: We are client focused. Everything we do is about them. We’re here to guide them through the entire process in making recommendations, finding things that are going to fit their personality and style because at the end of the day it’s their wedding, not ours. I tell prospective clients all the time, “We are not a “wedding factory” and we limit the amount of clients that we take on annually.  We don’t do multiple full-service bookings on a weekend.  This is so that  we can truly focus on each individual event and give our full attention to that one client.” Our couples should feel like they are the only ones getting married that year for us.

SF: If you had to pick your favorite thing about your job, what would that be?

HAW: Every day is different and unique.  I also love the fact that I get to be a part of an important chapter in this couple’s lives.  Not a lot of people can say that they get this opportunity in their careers.

SF: Do you have any tips you’d give to a bride and groom for a successful wedding?

HAW: Know your venue and asking about any potential challenges with the venue so nothing comes as a surprise (sound ordinance, parking, etc.). Also, I think it’s important to develop a personal relationship with the vendors you are working with because they are going to be locking arms with you for the next several months to make this wedding happen.  You have to be able to get along and trust them. If there’s not a personal connection, they may not be the right vendor for you.  But most importantly, I encourage my clients to take it all in on the wedding day.  It goes by so fast. So try to take time to truly experience it.  It is a very surreal experience. It is important to be able to stop for a moment, look around and realize that you are surrounded by the people you love the most and are closest to you instead of getting caught in all the little things that might come up.

SF: Because we are an entertainment company, I have to ask, what is your favorite wedding dance song?

HAW: Proud Mary by Tina Turner! I love it. I think it’s a classic. It crosses generational boundaries – grandma knows it, mom and her girlfriends are going to absolutely love it, bridesmaids and girls in general are going to get up and dance to that song. It’s got a great build to it and eventually gets everybody out on the dance floor.

SF: What’s an interesting fact that we may not know about you?

HAW: My father was a Radio DJ for country music.  He had a weekday morning show and was in radio from the time he was 15 until the day he died. No joke!  He LOVED what he did for a living (he always said that “it wasn’t work, but fun”) and I always admired that so very much.

——

From a business standpoint, Defining Moments Wedding & Events of 30A with Heather is fantastic to work with. She makes our staff’s lives so easy.  We just need to walk in our lane and do our part and everything falls into place. Personally, Heather is one of the nicest people we know. Her business is a true reflection of who she is. Any bride or groom would be lucky to have a planner like Heather. We are glad to recommend a person who’s company shares some of the same values we place such at a high priority.

Bboy Gives Back for Autism ECAC Golf Tourney | #bboygivesback

 

Did you know that April is National Autism Awareness month? We felt like this was a perfect time to call attention to one of our #bboygivesback non-profit partners, Emerald Coast Autism Center (ECAC). The staff at ECAC have a big job on their hands. Studies indicate that 1 in 68 children in the United States can be diagnosed as having autism spectrum disorder. These children will face innumerable challenges in life that many of us will never fully understand. But the good people at ECAC have put themselves on the frontline to face these challenges right alongside the youngsters they affect. It takes guts. It takes resolve. It takes a big heart. And it takes having a lot of support.

Bboy Gives Back for Autism and honored to do so…

That’s why B-Boy Productions was honored to play a role in the 5th Annual “Hole in ONE” Golf Tournament. The “ONE” in the event’s title is inspired by the “1 in 68” statistic, as a reminder of what — or rather, who — this charity fundraiser is aiming to help. Held at the prestigious Blackstone Golf Course in DeFuniak Springs, FL, the tournament raised funds for ECAC’s Capital Campaign, funding their newly-built facility on the Northwest Florida State College campus in Niceville, FL. This new state-of-the-art therapy center provides ECAC the opportunity to accommodate more students, and to offer them each a better, more effective therapy experience, while also ensuring a more substantial future for the center itself.

Golfers from all over the area, both seasoned and — not so seasoned, came out to support the cause. B-Boy Productions was there, with DJ Josh B. providing audio support and MC duties for the “shot gun start” opening ceremony and announcements. Hours later, as players returned from their rounds to the clubhouse, DJ Josh was there to provide music for the after party. He bolstered the tournament’s award presentations with a soundtrack of victory tunes, and kept a lively mix going throughout the many raffle giveaways.

DJ Josh B #bboygivesback

We also brought some of our B-Boy team to participate as golfers in the tournament. It was obvious by the end of the day that none of our team will be pursuing a golf career.  Our sweet spot is behind the decks and rocking parties. That said, it was a great time for some of our DJs to hang outside of the office and get to know some of the ECAC staff, partners and donors.

Fort Walton Beach Wedding Venue, WaterVue At Brooks Street | Keith & Jennifer

Wedding season is upon us again, and 2017 started off with a BANG for me (DJ Dan Davis) at WaterVue At Brooks St. for Keith & Jennifer Bivins’ wedding. Watervue is such a great Fort Walton Beach Wedding Venue. The weather was absolutely perfect. We had met the bride and groom at a wedding showcase of ours over a year ago at this very location. This venue is one of our favorites in the Fort Walton Beach area and I got a chance to work with an amazing group of vendors (some for the very first time).

I had a career first happen at Jennifer and Keith’s wedding. Keith’s mother, unfortunately, had passed away recently so instead of a traditional Mother and Son formality dance, Keith and his step-daughter, Lydia, shared a dance together to…. “Everything is AWESOME!” from The Lego Movie!” Their crowd had great energy, and it wasn’t long before we were dancing the night away!”
