Christopher & Jeremy's Wedding, Bold Rock, Nellysford, VA

What a wonderful start to the event season! Working with Christopher and Jeremy over several months to plan out their amazing reception was a absolute pleasure and their vision was a wonderful channel for our team to nail, not only the music playlist, but the lighting design we did for the entire (we mean the whole back space there at Bold Rock Cindery) to really set the mood for their wedding day. We also designed and programed a custom light show for their dance floor, such a rare thing for weddings, and a challenge we were ready for! All of the large and small details really showed their personality and made this quite the unique and fun wedding. The pop-pie for food, the food trucks with tacos, fish and chips, and other fair-like food, and the ice cream sandwich toast! It was such a wonderful night of dancing, food, drinks, and love. Congrats you guys!

Zac & Laura's JMU Duke wedding, Festival Ballroom, JMU, Harrisonburg, VA

- 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!!!!

Micheal & Erin's Wedding at The Local in Charlottesville, VA

You couldn't ask for a more wonderfully intimate location than The Local in the Belmont neighborhood in Charlottesville for a small wedding full of your closest friends and family. That is what Michael and Erin chose to do for their beautiful May wedding ceremony and reception. With a white tent doubling as the ceremony location and dinning area, and wine room for dancing, this wedding felt anything but small. The grooms father officiated the ceremony, then later gifted the couple to a song (the man can sing!), it was a wonderful night. Thanks to Micheal and Erin for including us and letting us provide sound, lighting, and DJing for their wedding day, we couldn't have asked for a better way to spend such a beautiful spring day.

Birthday Party Fun, The Local, Charlottesville, VA

Our first official event of the year happened to be located in our main offices new hometown of Charlottesville, VA!

We were at The Local in the Belmont area in their small private party room on the upstairs extended deck. We setup our full turntable club DJ setup along side our new super sleek compact PA system which was perfect for the 40-50 guests that came out to this private brithday party and also put a couple LED uplights around the room just too add some color once dancing began. We were going to put a table cloth around our DJ table but thought the flight cases fit in nicely with the raw materials of the deck.

Interested in having our club setup or CLUB WED for your event? Ask for more details about it when contacting us! 

Thanks to our super fun client and her guests for partying all night!

Stuart and Meredith's House Mountain Inn Wedding. Lexington, VA

It has been some time since Team DV-E made it up the windy road that leads to a hidden gem that his House Mountain Inn, just a few miles outside Historic Lexington, VA back in September. We were onsite to provide uplighting, dance lights, and one of our more rare services requested, "club wed" with full turntable setup. We even managed to light up the cake! This destination wedding for Stuart and Meredith was so beautiful, they couldn't have asked for more perfect weather, and a postcard worthy sunset. Congrats to the newly weds!
