Elisa & Bill's Wedding at Moss Vineyard, Dyke VA

- WRITTEN BY LEAD WEDDING DJ, DAVID VERDE

My team and I have been working weddings every weekend since April and often times when arriving to a venue we've never worked before we ask the question, "who puts a venue at the end of the really long gravel road that leads to nowhere?" Though I promise it's more of a running joke because these gravel roads lead to slices of paradise that you didn't even know could exist. Moss Vineyard is this in every single regard. Owned and operated by Barry and Ellen Moss, their vineyard shares the same property and views as their personal home (and crazy sweet sweet swimming pool I must add). Once getting settled It was not hard to understand why Elisa and Bill chose Moss at the location for the wedding day. Elisa and I have been communicating for well over a year now since they booked me at the start of 2016, so the build up to this day was pretty long, but oh was it worth it. 

I love all weddings, it's why I do what I do and never tire. However there is something sort of wonderful about very small weddings and getting this unadulterated invitation into their life for a day. In my world that is 50 people or less, and in Bill and Elisa's case, that was 38 of their dearest human beings. And oh were they all wonderful. Their ceremony took place at the end of the vines with honestly one of the sweetest ceremonies I've witnessed in my 15 years of working and DJing weddings. From the father of the bride Billy (who is my new favorite person I might add) who sang two songs, including Peter Gabrial's "Book of Love" with all the guests singing along, to their vows to each other to also help make their community better together, to even a little dancing, it was wonderful to watch. The dinner hand toasts from friends, siblings, and both sides parents, then dancing carried everyone into the night. The evening ended with everyone departing on a white school bus, and then all the vendors including the vineyard owners taking a break during breakdown and load out to watch the International Space Station fly over through the night sky. It was basiclly just a perfect day that I was so grateful to be apart of. 

With that, we provided DJ services, our super high output compact PA system and ceremony sound support as well as audio support for the father of the bride who sung and played guitar. 

To Elisa and Bill, their guests, family, and friends. Thank you for letting me be there for every joyous minute. Congrats to the bride and groom. 

PS, if you look at the photos below and see the chef setting up the tables? Yes that is a table measure making each napkin setting the same in every way. Can we can talk about attention to detail? That's the next level love for your clients we love to see from other vendors.

Eric & Lindsay's Gaie Lea wedding, Staunton, VA

After doing our pre-wedding walk through at Gaie Lea, I knew that Eric and Lindsay's wedding was going to be just as stunning as it was going to be fun. Let's just say they did not disappoint. From the amazingly touching poem written by Eric's college friend, to Lindsay's sister the matron of honors 3 minute rap-remix to a instrumental of the Fresh Prince of Belair theme music. Start to finish fully memorized without missing a beat, arguably the most amazing set of speeches I've seen in a very long time. This one October evening was one I'll remember for a while. I can't thank Lindsay and Eric for letting me be apart of their wedding day and helping them have a night to remember. 

Below are some photos from that night, special thanks goes out to the amazing photographer of the night, Emily of Emily Sacra Photography for letting me share some of her amazing work here on my blog.

Pete & Liz's fall wedding at Boars Head Inn, Charlottesville

Pete and Liz's wedding at the Boars Head Inn was small, intimate and full of love from friends and family. You couldn't have asked for a better venue and a better day for them to be joined together. We particularly loved the separate dance room, dinning room, and easy access to the patio over looking the fishing pond outside. What a wonderful day. Congrats to the newly weds!
