Modern love meets retro-cool in the heart of Oakland

I had an absolute blast being a part of Chris and Nicole’s amazingly cool, amazingly fun retro-themed wedding reception this past weekend. Oakland’s skyline created a perfect backdrop for a gorgeous ceremony officiated by one of Chris’ longtime friends.

The warm night air mixed with home-brewed beer and cider made cocktail hour a perfect way to start toasting the newlyweds. My retro cocktail hour playlist included a mixture of classic Motown and dusty gems from the 70s & 80s. Apparently my song selection hit a chord and a few guests stepped onto the dance floor, testing the waters for later in the evening. Always a good sign when that happens!

The evening ended with a giant group hug encircling Chris and Nicole, literally surrounding them with love. They felt it, I felt it and I’m pretty sure the rest of Oakland did too.

Till next time!

Hilltop Party in Pacifica

It doesn’t get much better than DJing with the Pacific ocean as your backdrop.

What a wonderful wedding on a wonderful weekend!

Venue: Shelldance Orchid Gardens

Feels great

to have been a part in such an amazing wedding! 

If I can make a rule can every reception feature a whiskey tasting during cocktail hour from now on?

It’s fun to stay at the YMCA (Camp Campbell specifically)

This was my second time working at Camp Campbell, a YMCA owned camp nestled in the Santa Cruz mountains. Last year’s event was my favorite of 2015 so this go around had some might big shoes to fill. How’d it go? Check out the video and decide for yourself!
