Palazzo Del Sol Beach House | Destin Wedding

Niki and Martin’s Destin wedding was by far my (DJ Josh Weck) favorite wedding to DJ this year! It didn’t hurt that it took place at my favorite beach house venue, the Palazzo Del Sol, located in Destin, FL. The wedding ceremony was held underneath a tent in the backyard, which was fortunate because it was a rather windy day. The musical accompaniment was a violin, played by a friend of the family, Carol.

Once the ceremony ended, the guests transitioned to the front of Palazzo del Sol for lawn games and drinks. The staff hastily flipped what was the ceremony space and turned it into where the reception was held.

My favorite part of a wedding reception is the toasts. This particular event, the groom bestowed the honor of best man on his father, which could leave him in a precarious position considering his father’s undoubted treasure trove of embarrassing stories. But, as most toasts end up, it was very heartfelt, very touching, and full of love: the recipe that makes up a great toast. Now that those formalities were taken care of, it was time to dance!

Niki had very specific songs for both of the dance sets. Usually, I get a bit nervous when the night is overly formatted. But, the songs she picked were GREAT selections and the guests loved them as well. The night was truly Niki and Martin’s. The dance floor filled immediately for the Anniversary Countdown and stayed packed the entire time there was open dancing. Here’s to the Geil’s! May they enjoy many happy years together.

UWF Dance Marathon | #bboygivesback

Sometimes we come across non-profits that just seem to fall in our laps as perfect fits for our #bboygivesback initiative. The UWF Dance Marathon is one of them. Of course, it helps that one of our DJs attends UWF (University of West Florida).

Dance Marathon DJ

Never heard of a Dance Marathon? Colleges across the country have been doing these for years. It is a yearlong philanthropy effort that raises funds for the Children’s Miracle Network. The UWF Dance Marathon, in particular, raises funds through that organization for a local hospital, the Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Sacred Heart in Pensacola. DJ Josh Weck saw a great opportunity for us to do what we do – throw down fantastic music with polished MC’ing. This effort is in its second year at UWF. The first year UWF used a spotify playlist for the entertainment. With a live DJ/MC, this would be a completely different experience for them (in a good way). Josh was up to the 8 hour DJ’ing challenge for the signature event. Students danced from 10:00AM until 8:00PM. Not all danced the entire 8 hours (most came in waves through the 8 hours), but a few did. To keep it from getting stagnant, certain hours were themed by genre or style.

The results? Last year they raised $11,000 and this year they raised over $43,000! Boom!

Interested in being a part of the Dance Marathon? Anyone can get involved – whether it is donating, being on the Executive board, or being a dancer. Follow them on Instagram to learn more. Also, if you are interested in volunteering with the local hospital they do accept volunteers there as well.

Here’s what 2 administrators had to say about our involvement on our 3rd party review site.

Meet DJ Josh Woeckener | Emerald Coast Wedding DJ

Not your typical Emerald Coast Wedding DJ

Josh Woeckener’s path to being a DJ/MC for B-Boy Productions, Inc. was not your typical employment route. We met Josh as a client of B-Boy when he and his wife, Rhoda, got married a few years ago. DJ Irving G was their DJ/MC and in his post event report, he left a little note at the end that said, “Josh would be a great potential DJ/MC for our team.” For most companies, the best hires are typically those that are referred in from current employees. That certainly has been the case for us. We quickly followed up with him and within a few conversations, we had him in for training. One of the many advantages to having Josh as your Emerald Coast Wedding DJ or MC is that he’s been in the client shoes, specifically as a B-Boy Productions client. He easily relates to what they’re going through and in many cases can anticipate exactly what questions/issues clients will want answered, addressed, etc. This puts our clients at ease right away. Josh was in the Air Force for a few years and with that brings extreme attention to detail and fantastic follow-up skills.

Being from the local area and doubling as a sales associate for B-Boy, Josh is very familiar with just about every venue in the area. He networks throughout the week and can speak very confidently about the vendors we work with. So whether it’s something we can offer or not, Josh will be sure to guide you down the right path.

Over the last few years, he’s been working many events outside of weddings and corporates for us by doing some nightlife events as well as playing for fitness/gym workout sessions weekly. As it pertains to weddings, this make a huge difference. Becoming a well-rounded DJ and MC in all event types allows him to bridge the gap with just about any client he works with. The vast amount of sweat equity he put into his craft led to his recent promotion as an Associate level DJ earlier this year. The value of experience can’t be understated.

We hope you’ll strongly consider Josh as your wedding DJ/MC. He’ll not only approach your event as if you’re his only client but he’ll rock the party as well.

Based in the Fort Walton Beach area, Josh is booked there as well as all over the Emerald Coast for his events. To book him for your event, contact us today.

Fonville Press Wedding | Alex & Courtney

Elegant and Casual: A Fonville Press Wedding

If I had to describe a Fonville Press wedding reception, I’d say it’s like throwing an epic party in the nicest backyard you’ve ever seen or been to. There’s a very relaxed yet elegant feel to it. For Alex and Courtney, they articulated their wedding vision as “formal with a casual atmosphere”. This place nails it on all counts.

Their ceremony took place on the beach. Country music was the genre of choice for the prelude to the processional. The new made-for-wedding song “I Get to Love You” by Ruelle ushered in Alex and the Bridal Party. Courtney’s processional march was punctuated by the classic “Canon in D”. The wind calmed as Courtney’s aunt, Sister Barb, presided over the ceremony. After the First Kiss as husband and wife, they greeted their guests to “All You Need Is Love by The Beatles.

Venue & Wedding Coordination: Alys Beach
Officiant: Sister Barbara Ann Zeller
Ceremony Sound Technician & DJ/MC: Josh Weck, B-Boy Productions

Catering: Townsend Catering

The reception was filled with a heartfelt welcome from the Father of the Bride, a taco and queso bar as part of dinner, one written and one off-the-cuff toast, and the sense that everyone was there to celebrate Alex & Courtney. An eclectic assortment of music painted the soundtrack for the night ranging from country to an island/beachy sound to alternative to Top 40 and party classics. The wide range of music ensured that no one attending felt out of place or forgotten. This was the first wedding I’ve (Josh W) done where they wanted to ensure specific slow dances were incorporated in the open dance sets. It truly won over the guests.

DJ Josh W and DJ Irving G Entertain for Sandestin Hilton Wedding | Levi & Andi

The location was the Sandestin Hilton Beach Golf Resort & Spa. We had a full B-Boy team in effect with a ceremony violinist, photographer and 2 person DJ/MC Package. We also got a chance to work with the amazing vendor team of Kiss The Bride Wedding & Event Planning and It’s A Perfect Day Wedding Florist.  What started out as a calm, warm day turned into a very windy affair for Levi Croy and Andi Seward’s wedding.  This, however, did not dampen the joyful atmosphere and despite uncooperative weather conditions, the feeling was warm and loving.

Destin Wedding

This particular Sandestin Hilton Wedding ceremony took place on the beach.  Our violinist set the mood with some beautiful classical selections picked by Levi and Andi.  They wrote their own vows which  were extremely touching and heartfelt.

Destination Wedding

In what was one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen, they incorporated a “dove release” just before they were pronounced husband and wife.

Dove Release

We transitioned into the reception on the Sunrise deck and the table décor and florals absolutely captured the Spring destination feel they were going for with teal and pink colors.

Hilton Sandestin Weddings

With memorable toasts and a real sense of togetherness, you could not tell which of the guests were from the bride’s side and which of the guests were from the groom’s side. My partner for the evening, DJ Irving G, orchestrated a fitting soundtrack as guests danced the night away.  We wish you the best Levi and Andi!
