Wedding DJ Wedding Package Winners | Des & Basil
Last year we did a wedding package giveaway. It was one of the best contests we’ve ever ran. It came down to the wire but Deserie and Basil (pictured bottom left below) pulled away and won it!
It took over a year to see the wedding come to fruition but wow, what an awesome event. I didn’t get a ton of time to hang out with Des and Basil but you could see the genuine love in their eyes all night. Their crowd was amazing and boy did they love some old school!
This was the first time I’d ever worked at this venue, Plaza De Magdalena, in San Juan Capistrano, CA. From the street, you’d have no idea this hidden gem was there. And a hidden gem it is! The courtyard is downstairs and very private – perfect for ceremonies and cocktail hours. But the crown jewel is the Magdalena Room, which boasts a phenomenal in-house lighting system (complete with decor and monogram/gobo lighting potential) and they have an in-house sound system. Patti, the contact at the venue, was amazing to work with. She was very accommodating and unlike many venue contacts, she stayed until the end (which I very much appreciated).
Des had her friend, Elena Moreno, run the event and she couldn’t have been easier to work with! You’d have thought she had done this for years by the way she was so calm and collected throughout the night. Here are a photos of the evening we snapped.
