We’ve worked a lot of events over the years, but never a wedding ceremony and reception on Halloween where everyone showed up in costume, and we mean EVERYONE! It was kind of amazing and really set the tone for who Erica and Zac are as a couple. Zac was our main point of contact and we couldn’t have asked for a kinder, personable, warm human to help plan their wedding. We went above and beyond to help design and layout a custom large light show for the dancefloor fully fitted with haze so you could see the lights doing their thing. That is a rare opportunity both for couples who want something over the top and different, and a venue that allowed it. Either way, their wedding was a blast! We couldn’t have ask for a better day. Congrats to Erica and Zac.
A little bit of rain wasn’t going to stop this wedding from happening with all the excitement, love, and happiness Tara and Josh and their guests had bottled up, ready to let out at the right moment. And oh did that moment come as soon as they said I do! We were there for their ceremony and reception and helped them ring in their first day together as husband and wife in style. Couldn’t have asked for a better wedding day at a stunning venue. Congrats again!
What a wonderful day was Cody and Mady's wedding day at King Family Vineyard in Crozet. Just a short drive from our home office, this was our first visit to King Family and hopefully not our last. The sky was full of wonderful white fluffy clouds and the bluest skies, and the sunset dropping below the valley in the distance. Picture perfect is a bit cliche but a accurate description. We ran sound for the ceremony as well as DJ'ed and setup lighting in The Carriage House and couldn't ask for a better setting for a evening of amazing food, donuts, wine, and dancing.
We've have several amazing options and layouts for King Family Vineyard already and we put those recommendations to work for Cody and Mady. We set up our large 4 speaker PA system to spread sound throughout the room, a wireless speaker was set up in The North Gallery to feed sound for the cocktail hour as well as the rest of the night as ran sound for the ceremony outside in the back field. What we love about The Carriage House is with the dance floor placed near the center rear of the room, we were able to setup a 4-corner lighting setup which once dancing begun, really brought the party vibe to the room.
Mady and Cody couldn't have asked for a better day and we're so happy to have been there to help them celebrate their wedding day. Congrats!

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.
