WaterColor Inn Wedding with DJ Brian B | Catie & Russ
I truly believe that WaterColor Inn is one of the most stunning wedding venues on the planet. Having performed all over the country as a wedding DJ, I say this with extreme conviction. So when Catie called us to inquire about our services and mentioned they had just booked that venue, I was so happy for them. Multiply that excitement by 110% when she asked me personally to perform at her wedding!
Although she was extremely laid back, Catie and I were in contact frequently up to her wedding day. I love it when a bride takes that much interest in the entertainment portion of her wedding. We threw formality song suggestions back and forth many times until we found songs that fit them perfectly.
On the day of the wedding, the weather was stunning. We set up on the lawn for the cocktail hour and reception while the ceremony took place on the beach. With our 2 person DJ/Emcee package, DJ Charles handled the ceremony sound technician duties while one of our guitarists provided the ceremony music.
At the reception, we kicked into “The Wobble” immediately following the first dance and the entire crowd came out onto the dancefloor. Talking about setting a dancing tone right off the back! Wow! They were ready to party.
As I started playing for dinner, a huge cloud formed over us. I tried my “music karma” in getting the sun out there with this Beatles selection.
In true Florida fashion, within all of about 90 seconds, a slight drizzle started. We quickly covered our gear and waited for it to pass. As soon as it did, we went back out and started again. The weather kept threatening and when the wind picked up, it was obvious that Mother Nature had other plans.
We quickly packed up our gear and moved inside one of the ballrooms and carried on with the rest of the night. The crowd was in such a great mood despite the weather ordeal. It was probably one of the best dancing crowds I had all summer long.
What really stood out to me, however, was the love that this family shared. The toast tributes to both the bride and groom were so touching.
It was great sharing this wedding with some of the local area wedding industry all-stars. We had Cheryl from WaterColor coordinating the event, Paul and Mecheal from Paul Johnson Photography, Celia and Danny from Momentus Films, and the crew from Fisher Flowers and Events.
We send out heartfelt best wishes to both Catie and Russ!!! With that, we’ll leave you with this awesome highlight video from Momentus Films.
