- WRITTEN BY LEAD WEDDING DJ, DAVID VERDE
I never pick favorites, honestly. Each couple I get to work with is amazing in their own way and makes looking forward to the weekend easy and exciting. It's when couples take the time to dig around to find out about me, my DJing style beyond your average wedding (like some of my DJ mixes and mashups floating around the internet somewhere) do things get really exciting. There are a lot of other DJs out there, but from my point of view, when people appreciate everything that is involved with this profession it makes me thankful for what I do for a living.
At any rate, when I met with Zac & Laura at Festival Ballroom inside the Festival Conference & Student Center on the JMU campus in Harrisonburg, I think it was pretty clear we all clicked and DJing their wedding needed to happen. The then, soon to be bride mentioning she just finished working out listening to one of my mixes was just a bonus. What was great is they took advantage of my somewhat regular visits to Harrisonburg to meet several times in person, as well as Video calls to make sure all the details were ready to go come their wedding day. Not that phone calls and email can't do the same thing, but it's always nice to get to know the couple a little bit more that chatting in person offers.
Zac and Laura, both grads of JMU couldn't have picked a more perfect location for their purple painted reception. Even Duke Dog showed up! We provided our largest PA system to fill the large ballroom with as much sound as possible, as well as our full turntable setup Club Wed package to really fill in the space well. What was amazing is the room never once felt too large as Zac and Laura' guests came ready to party and kept the dance floor full all night. It was a splendid evening for sure.
Congrats again, Zac and Laura!!!!
