DJ Charles in the mix for a Hilton Sandestin Weddings | Keith & Erica
I had the pleasure of DJ’ing Keith Holtel and Erica Kleinholz’s wedding this past Summer. They were from Cincinnati, Ohio and picked the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa in Destin, FL as their wedding venue. Their 62 guests came from all over the country.
When the reception started, I could just tell that they were going to be a great crowd. Everything went smoothly and the event had an elegant vibe to it on the Sunset Deck. However, not even 15 minutes after the Grand Entrance, the Florida summer rain decided to make an appearance. We made the decision after dinner to move the reception inside to one of the ballrooms since it continued to sprinkle intermitently. As you can imagine, the delay in having to reset caused the mood to shift a bit. I knew I had to do my best to entertain these people and swing the momentum! I mean, this is one of the biggest days of their lives and there’s no way I was going to let a little rain ruin this beautiful ocassion.
As soon as I got re-set, I instantly threw on some upbeat dance music hits! This proved to be the remedy. From that moment on, they went into full party mode and we kept it slammin’ all night! It was definitely one of the best crowds I’ve ever DJ’d for. Thank you Erica and Keith for letting me be a part of your big day! Best of luck to you both!
We recently received a wedding wire review on this event from the bride. Here’s what she had to say:
“We had a destination wedding in Sandestin so we didn’t really know what to expect. The wedding was beautiful and DJ Charles was right there on the deck for the Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dance. It was great. THEN it started to rain so they moved us inside to another room and everyone’s mood wasn’t the greatest. DJ Charles’ flexibility and professionalism to pack all of his equipment up and move inside was awesome. Once he got set up, DJ Charles got the party started again and the reception turned out to be just as great as the ceremony. Thanks DJ Charles for rocking the house and making it a perfect night.” – Erica Kleinholz, Destin, FL (event date: 6/17/14)
