Jess & Drew's wedding at Bold Rock Cidery, Nellysford VA

- WRITTEN BY LEAD WEDDING DJ, DAVID VERDE

I always love it when I get to know my wedding couples beyond the landscape of emails. In the modern world you do get to know people pretty well in text form however I had the pleasure to chat with Jess and Drew on the phone a few times, video call as well as meet in person for a venue walk through. With that by the time I arrived to their wedding I wasn't there with just my clients but among friends. The evening started promptly at 6:45pm just as the sun dipped behind the trees casting the most perfectly timed curtain of shade on the ceremony site down by the creek in the field beyond the cidery. Once they said I-Do, everyone made their way up the hill and carried the evening into the night. 

We had another first at Drew and Jess' wedding. We provided our ceremony sound support, but we also provided a mobile generator that is not available for rent to give power at the ceremony site! It's no louder a running car so it was perfect. We also setup up our wireless battery powered LED uplights outside in the reception around adding some lovely light to the stairs of the cidery deck. It was a lovely view both in decor and watching everyone have an amazing time.

Lauren & Jody's Wedding at Wintergreen Resort, Virginia

It's official! The 2017 wedding season has begun for team DV-E and our first wedding of the year took place nearly 3,500ft above sea level at the beautiful Wintergreen Resort in Nelson County, Virginia. It turns out that the groom Jody loves baseball, so when I was thrown a curve ball request (pun intended) to play bluegrass during the cocktail hour, a genre of music that goes far under played at weddings, and one our team listens too quite often when not at events, we knew we were going to have a great night. 

From homages to Texas, Virginia, Ohio, and the Washington Nationals, Jody and Lauren's wedding was full of fun, family, friendship, and love. 

That a look at a few images from their reception below. We hope to share some more images that the ever talented Jared Ladia of Jared Ladia Photography took as well. A few clips from their wedding will be featured in our monthly recap video for the month of May later this month.

Congratulations again! "Remember where you are so you remember where you were."
