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!”

Meet DJ Dan Davis | One Of Emerald Coast’s Finest

Continuing in our series of “Meet Your DJ” posts, Meet DJ Dan Davis. He is one of our most senior DJs on our Florida Division staff, having been with B-Boy Productions since 2013. When he first started training with us, it was apparent that he had an aptitude for the music and technical part of DJ’ing. It was his natural, laid back demeanor that had us wondering what his stage presence would be like. Turns out all we needed to do was give him a microphone. Dan is a natural entertainer! Very little coaching was needed as he is acutely aware of what is happening at an event and what is needed to take any event to the next level. His quick wit and ability to read a crowd is such an asset for our clients who want every guest to feel included in the celebration at hand.

Dan has led our team in events worked over the last two years by a wide margin. He’s always the first to raise his hand to be a part of any event where a DJ/MC is needed. This past year Dan helped us build up our local nightlife business with weekly residences at The Red Bar in Grayton Beach, FL and at AJs Seafood & Oyster Bar in Destin, FL which was voted #36 on Nightclub & Bar Magazine’s Top 100 in their most recent list.

In 2017, Dan will continue to play weekly at the Red Bar but he has a renewed desire to focus on our private events. His reviews speak for themselves. If you want a DJ/MC who will put his heart and soul into your event, you can’t go wrong with DJ Dan Davis. Even if it falls outside the realm of what he has been hired to do (he’s been known to help caterers with setting up the food area, wedding planners in wiping down chairs, and holding lighting stands for photographers), Dan is there for you. To read more about Dan and see his reviews, click here.

Dan is booked primarily on 30A in Santa Rosa Beach, Grayton Beach, WaterColor, Alys Beach, Rosemary Beach, Carrilon Beach, Panama City Beach and Destin for the majority of wedding events. To book him today for your event, contact us today.

Eden Gardens Wedding | Keith and Kimberly

What’s not to love about an Eden Gardens Wedding?

If you’re looking for a place in the Florida panhandle that is magical, an Eden Gardens wedding is as close as you’re going to get to it. There are a big couple “ifs”…

  • If it’s not in the summer where there is no air to let the humidity out
  • If it’s not in the winter where you and your guests freeze to death
  • if it’s not raining (which happens 90% of the time in Florida) and you’re walking through a swamp

While the weather forecast changed by the day for Keith and Kimberly (initial reports earlier in the week showed a complete downpour), by the time the wedding day hit, it was perfect. Towards the evening, the temperature dipped slightly but not enough to cause any issues. Wedding attendance for a destination wedding in the panhandle typically averages about 100-125 people. For this one, we had upwards of 180. The wedding venue, however, has plenty of acreage to fit just about any guest count.

All about the details

Kimberly contacted us with less than 2 months before her wedding day. With us (B-Boy Productions) and two of our three sister companies, B-Boy Rentals and Event Design (coordination) and B-Boy Photo Booths, we jumped right into it and helped make this wedding come to life. Kimberly is very much like myself (Brian) in being OCD and into the details. We immediately clicked and worked extremely close between our two insane travel schedules (Kimberly lives in Alaska and commutes weekly all over the country and myself, well, if you know me, then you know that airports are my second home as I perform events across the country). For this event, I put on my coordinator hat (which I love to do) and we made some magic happen.

Seacrest Beach Wedding Celebration with DJ Dan | Matt & Hannah

The weather in Northwest Florida is quite fickle. Indeed, it can change by the minute. Fortunately, for Matt and Hannah Radicz’s wedding, it didn’t stop us from partying the night away!

Seacrest Beach Wedding

Matt and Hannah’s reception was held poolside at The Villas condominiums in luxurious Seacrest Beach, FL. Some severe thunderstorms moved into the area and poured down rain, but they didn’t stay long. Everything had dried off by the time the reception was to be held.

For this event, there was no planner; Matt and Hannah were working with a very tight budget. Situations like these are where I shine, as I truly believe in rolling up my sleeves and getting my hands dirty. While I took the pressure off of the Bride and Groom and let them go enjoy their special day, I made sure to check on the catering food, make sure the cake cutting utensils were all in place, and much more. I love to multitask!

The highlight of the evening for me was the Groom and his brother/Best Man performing John Legend’s “All of Me” for his Bride. Matt had contacted me a few weeks prior and told me he wanted to surprise Hannah with a performance. I was nothing but delighted to help facilitate it! She was very touched by his gesture, and cried tears of joy all throughout.

It takes more than a little black rain cloud to stop B-Boy from keeping the party rolling, and party we did that day! Congratulations, Matt & Hannah!

 

**EDITOR’S NOTE****

We recently received a wedding wire review on this event from the bride.  Here’s what she had to say:

“DJ Dan Davis made our reception so much fun! He was very responsive from day one, met with us at a coffee shop with last minute notice because we were only in town for a day. We planned our wedding from a distance and he was very efficient with communicating via text & calls. It was the least amount of stress compared to planning with other vendors! He played all of the requests that we specified including 2 songs for the father/daughter dance. He was very in touch with us throughout the reception checking with the groom & I to make sure everything was OK and to assure we were happy with his services. He got everyone up & dancing easily. All of our guests, including us, were dancing all night and having a blast! The value was also essential for us being on a tight budget.  Thank you so much Dan Davis for making our reception a success!!!” – Hannah Lee, Panama City Beach, FL (event date: 9/13/14)

A Perfect day for getting married in Sandestin FL | Art & Brittany’s Wedding

It was a perfect day for getting married in Sandestin, FL

It was a perfect day for getting married in Sandestin, FL! As guests started arriving at the Bayview Room and Terrace for cocktail hour, you could see them tapping their feet as they listened to the smooth jams of one our live musicians, Wes Heath, on the guitar and vocals. Everyone was smiling and talking about the beautiful ceremony they had just witnessed.

Once everyone made their way inside for the reception, I knew we had an amazing crowd! They were full of energy which is a key ingredient for an epic party! After introducing myself as the Emcee and my partner in crime for the evening, Dan Davis, as the DJ, we kicked into “Love Never Felt So Good” by Michael Jackson for the bridal party introduction. Each VIP bridal party member danced their way inside the reception hall. After the last of the bridal party made their way in, we shut the doors and I got the crowd ready for our bride and groom. The anticipation was at the apex when those doors finally swung open. The crowd exploded with a deafening roar of cheers for the new Mr. and Mrs. Becker!

The night went flawlessly! People were laughing, dancing and having an all-around good time! Earlier at the ceremony, the grandmother sustained a minor injury and had to go to the hospital. Both her and her husband weren’t able to make the reception early on. After getting word from our coordinator that they would be able to make an appearance later on, I had her cue me when they arrived. I called everyone out to the dance floor with Art and Brittany standing at the front so when the front doors swung open and I announced them in, they went crazy yet again! It gave the party a second wind. Brittany, our bride, got to dance with her Grandfather to “Fly Me to The Moon” by Frank Sinatra. As the music played, you could see a huge smile on the grandmother’s face as she witnessed her first granddaughter dancing with her husband.

As for the dancing, it didn’t take hardly any time to get everyone up and partying. With New Yorkers in the house, we hit them with “Juicy” by Notorious B.I.G. and, of course, they knew all the words. For all the Chicagoans (where the bride and groom live), we dropped “Homecoming” by Kanye West and everyone went nuts. We finished the night with “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey and ended on a high note.

Wedding Djs

We worked with some talented vendors as well to pull off this incredible wedding. Kelli Deary coordinated the event for Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. Patty Bilbo from It’s A Perfect Day provided all the florals and decor. Heidi from Bake My Day made the cake. Last but certainly not least, Sarah Lyn Photography was on hand to capture the day in photos.

This was definitely one of those weddings where I realized I have the greatest job in the world.  I love to DJ weddings and play a part in a couple’s special day! Thanks for having us Art and Brittany! We wish you both the best!

Highlands House Wedding Highlights with DJ Dan Davis | Jenna and Evan

Highlands House Bed and Breakfast is a wedding venue located in Santa Rosa Beach, FL along the world-famous Highway 30-A stretch of the Emerald Coast. B-Boy Productions is the exclusively referred entertainment company for the property. As the B-Boy “resident DJ” for Highlands House, I am there often and their staff and I recognize one another by name and face. We have developed a teamwork dynamic that really helps create a smooth and efficient atmosphere for our clients and guests that really shines. This particular wedding was one of their largest guest-wise. They handled this entire affair with the utmost care and service, better than I’ve ever seen them administrate any event (and that’s saying a lot since they’ve done such a good job with every one that I’ve been a part of!).

For a mid-June wedding, Jenna and Evan Sanders really won the Florida lottery. No, not the one you may be thinking of, but the weather lottery. The chance for precipitation in this state can often times be unpredictable, but I could not imagine a better day to get married. Perfect sky, perfect warmth, and naturally, one the world’s perfect beaches!

This wedding had a few stand-out moments. The first was that the date was Friday, the 13th. If that wasn’t already unique, how about the fact that 5 other couples who were attending their reception as guests were also married on a Friday, the 13th? It was actually a family tradition! Jenna and Evan put together a tribute of which I got the privilege to read through during dinner as we called up each couple who went before them in marriage and honored them. So cool!

The other stand-out moment was the Father/Daughter dance. Jenna had mentioned during our planning session that she had a special edit that she was going to send me. Intrigued, I eagerly awaited to hear what it was going to be and I don’t think anything could have prepared me for what she sent. To an unsuspecting crowd, after an un-announced “wardrobe change”  (Jenna changed into a more “active wear” dress), Jenna and her father began dancing to the wedding staple “My Girl” by The Temptations. Things quickly took a turn when that tale-tell melody of “Thriller” by Michael Jackson began playing, fittingly enough for Friday the 13th. In reality, Jenna and her Father had choreographed a dance number beforehand, and really wowed not only their friends and family, but me as well! The medley concluded, rather surprisingly, with “Bye Bye Bye” by N*Sync.  What a great way to kick off a party!

After a lovely meal and some special toasts, we danced the rest of the night away on the dance floor. After such a special day filled with great memories, it certainly didn’t take a lot of effort to get people out on the floor! What a happy  day! Here’s a quick highlight reel of the night. Enjoy!

Wedding Entertainment with DJ Irving G: Henderson Park Inn, Destin FL | Harris Wedding

With the sugar white sand on the beach, the perfectly clear sky and the turquoise water color on full display, it was another awesome spring day on the Emerald Coast of Florida. Our bride and groom, Justin and Hayley Harris, had assembled an all-star supporting cast of vendors to work with us at Henderson Park Inn in Destin, FL. We had Michael K Photography, Florals by the Sea, Cake Destination and Beach Walk Café. There was no doubt that we were primed for an amazing wedding.

As the guests filed down to the beach, you could just feel the excitement. When Justin saw Hayley walk down that aisle, his face lit up with a huge smile. It was such a beautiful ceremony.

Henderson Park Inn Wedding Ceremony

With the ceremony over, the guests transitioned to the lawn for cocktail hour. They enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while listening to the the smooth Caribbean sounds of our steel drummer extraordinaire, Rudy Applewhite. Drinks in hand and the great company of friends, many of whom had not seen one another for a long time, made for the perfect combo as we got ready for a fun-filled reception.

Henderson Park Inn Wedding Decor

Mr. and Mrs. Justin Harris walked into the reception and the crowd went wild. The first dance was a very appropriate choice with it being a beach wedding. They danced to “Kokomo” by the Beach Boys. The happy couple was just lost in the moment.

Henderson Park Inn Wedding First Dance

The music for the dinner hour was a mixture of laid back reggae, some retro throwbacks and a few current selections mixed in. Guests were singing and clapping along to many of the songs. As we got ready to transition into dancing, we picked up the tempo a bit.

Once we segued into open dancing, it became very apparent that the crowd loved that old time rock and roll. Everything from The Beatles to Jerry Lee Lewis, guests couldn’t get enough. From the very first song, guests were out on the floor!

When the crowd really got down, the white Wayfarer shades came out and the dance floor stayed packed almost the entire night.

I even got on the dance floor and led a few dances with Justin, Hayley and their guests.

How did they end this perfect night? With a glow stick tunnel of course. All of their family and friends cheered them on as Justin and Hayley made their way through it. It was a great send-off and completed an awesome reception.

Weekend DJ Entertainment Recap: Nightclub, Weddings, & Bat Mitzvah

Whew! What a weekend. We are just now recouping from a phenomenal weekend where we had 12 events across Florida and New York. Here’s a little journey through our DJ Entertainment life in pictures.

On Thursday, DJ Brian B kicked off the weekend at McGuire’s Irish Pub of Destin in Destin, FL. It’s Destin’s best Ladies Night and DJ Brian B did not disappoint. He was rocking it along with the band, Grape Drink. It was packed! If this is any indication of what the summer is going to be like, we’re in for a good one. We’re there EVERY Thursday from 10PM – 2AM with a rotation of our DJs and there’s no cover! It even prompted this amazing text from management to Brian B.

Saturday, we had 7 events on the schedule. DJ Dan Davis kicked it off with the wedding of Meagan Blais and Lacey Nivers at a private residence in Navarre, FL. Dan handled the ceremony sound and DJ/Emcee duties. He did so well that it even warranted a kiss from the brides at the end of the night.

Wedding DJ Brian B at Sandestin Beach and Golf Resort – Amber & Mito

Sandestin Ceremony Bubbles Wedding

One thing I always ty to do as a wedding DJ is form a tight bond with my clients. By doing so, your chances of a successful event go way up. You’ll be in tune with what their tastes are musically as well as know exactly how they envision the night turning out. If you are able to catch that vision, it can be a magical and surreal experience the night of the event!

I find it pretty easy for me to make a connection with almost any client but there are those rare few where it goes beyond that…you feel like you’ve known them your whole life or better yet, they are one of those couples you’d have no problem hanging out with after the event is long over. That couldn’t be more the case with my most recent wedding client, Amber and Mito. Not only were they a stunning looking couple, but they were so easy going and laid back, that the planning process felt effortless.

The event took place at the Bayview Room and Terrace which is located inside the Sandestin Beach and Golf Resort.  It had been a while since I personally worked this room so I had forgotten how much I love it.  The location is perfect for intimate weddings.  The ceremony spot is on the back terrace overlooking the Choctawhatchee Bay and is also great for cocktail hour.  The inside ballroom is very private and can really be customized via décor lighting to look quite stunning.

Sandestin First Dance Wedding DJ

I got a chance to work with Lesley Isacks of Lesley Isacks Photography. Our last wedding together was one of my favorites of last year so I had a good feeling we could rekindle the same “event magic”. Amber and Mito were from South Florida so a few of their wedding vendor friends came up to provide wedding services to give it a more personalized touch. The cake maker was Betty from Cakes By Night out of Fort Myers, FL.  Handling the florals were Larry and Kathy Freeman out of Waleska, Georgia.

Sandestin Wedding Cake Wedding DJ

With DJ Dan Davis and myself working this event as a wedding DJ duo, we kicked off the reception with “Turn Down For What” by Lil Jon and DJ Snake as the Grand Entrance song. For the First Dance, they chose what is quickly becoming this season’s wedding song, “All of Me” by John Legend. We went into the meal and then our toasts took place. One  of Mito’s daughters, Breanna, gave one of the most heartfelt toasts I’ve ever heard. She honored her dad and Amber so well. Our Father/Daughter dance soundtrack was “Butterfly Kisses” by Bob Carlisle. Mito, being Puerto Rican, selected “Armor de Madre” by Victor Manuella for him and his mother to dance too.

By the time we got to the open dancing, this crowd was primed and ready! It was on from the first track. Musically, we were all over the place.. We had some retro classics, current top 40 and a good amount of Latin tracks. Mito broke it down with some of the salsa music. I wish I had 1/10 of his rhythmic/dancing ability. Never once did the energy die. We just kept building and building the energy all evening long. There was even a “dance off’!

UPDATE 4/30/14:
This review just came in from Amber and Mito and we are blown away!!
“DJ BRIAN BUONASSISSI WITH B-BOY PRODUCTIONS IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TO WORK WITH, EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL, SUPER HELPFUL, AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON WITH THE GREAT EXPERIENCE MY HUSBAND AND I HAD FOR OUR WEDDING!!! The reception and the FUN part of the wedding was VERY IMPORTANT to us because everyone knows the DJ can either make or break the party, and BRIAN EXCEEDED ALL OF OUR EXPECTATIONS!!! We had an intimate wedding of roughly 60 people in the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, at the Bayview Room and Terrace, and Brian had the dance floor packed from START to FINISH!!! There was NEVER an empty seat in the room…he even had Grandma dancing to Gangnam Style!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DJ BRIAN B TO ANYONE LOOKING TO HAVE NO WORRIES ON THEIR BIG, SPECIAL DAY!! My husband is Puerto Rican, so I was nervous to see who would dance to the Latin music on my side of the family…including myself…LOL…because that requires a certain kind of skill…BUT HE IS A GENIUS BECAUSE THE MUSIC JUST FLOWED BEAUTIFULLY AND IT SERIOUSLY DID NOT MATTER IF YOU WERE YOUNG, OLD, CAN DANCE AMAZING, TERRIBLE DANCER…LOL..THE POINT IS THAT EVERY SINGLE GUEST LEFT WITH A GREAT, AWESOME EXPERIENCE BECAUSE OF BRIAN!! It was scary selecting vendors I have never met and planning a destination wedding is hard, but his reviews, which are why I called him first, were outstanding!!! You cannot teach personality, and understanding or reading a crowd…you can’t train for those things, it really is a gift, and he has that!!! If you are skimming financially on certain things when you are planning for your wedding, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT GO CHEAP ON CHOOSING DJ BRIAN BUONASSISSI!!! You may find cheaper but you seriously will MISS OUT on the quality and this is a ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE!!!! We hope to use DJ BRIAN B for other major events in our future!!!!!”

Sandestn Sunset B-Boy Productions Wedding

Wedding Entertainment with DJ Charles: The Blacharski Wedding at Eglin: – March 29, 2014

The Spring wedding season kicked off for me a little sooner than expected as this event was added to my calendar 2 weeks before this wedding!  Surprises like this are exactly why I love being in the wedding entertainment business! As the Emcee assigned to the event, I got my first impression of our groom, Tony Blacharski, during our planning appointment. He was very laid back and was looking for a relaxed vibe the day of the event. That said, he didn’t want things too loose as he wanted everything to be perfect for his bride, Elaine Cherry, on their special day. Both the wedding ceremony and reception were held at the Officer’s Club Bayview Club on Eglin Air Force Base.

Working with us this day was Kim from Coastal Moments Photography. This was my first time working alongside her on an event and she was every bit as professional as everyone raved about! I hope to work with her again.

We started the event by providing Ceremony Sound inside the facility.  The groom and bride were both smitten with one another as our officiant, Eric Partin, presided over the ceremony.  They picked some instrumental acoustic guitar selections for the processional and the orchestral version of “Canon In D” as she made her way down the aisle.

Wedding Entertainment

For the cocktail hour, they had pre-selected an old school jazz vibe. Songs from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, etc. filled the air as my partner on the event, DJ Dan, mixed the tunes. After cocktail hour concluded, we went straight into the meal. We played a variety of great music.

Following dinner, we went into the cake cut and toasts so we could have a ton of time for open dancing. Tony and Elaine opened the dance floor by having their first dance to the tune of “At Last” by Etta James.  That song is a classic!

Destin Wedding Entertainment

DJ Dan then turned it up a notch as we invited everyone to the dance floor for open dancing.

Bayview Club Wedding Officer's Club Dance

Bayview Club Wedding Officer's Club Slow Dance

For the last song of the night, DJ Dan played a Muppets song called “Life’s A Happy Song” which was specifically requested by Tony. I had my doubts with the selection because songs by the Muppets aren’t usually what we in the wedding entertainment business have in our regular playlists… much less use to pack a dance floor. It was obvious that the song had special meaning because as soon as it started playing, it brought the biggest smile to Elaine’s face as well as filled the dance floor. The ending of this reception was definitely one of the most movie-like endings I’ve ever been a part of.

Bayview Club Wedding Officer's Club Last Dance

This intimate wedding really personified what most people dream of – elegant, great music, lots of dancing and love permeating throughout the day.  Thanks for allowing DJ Dan and myself to share the day with you.  Best of luck to both of you!
