San Diego wedding DJ company Positive Energy Productions gives a real wedding recap of an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception at the Admiral Kidd Club. This San Diego wedding venue is located near downtown San Diego and Point Loma. Perfect weather and a great view of the skyline made for a great day. This wedding couple found me through a referral from their friends who used me as their San Diego wedding DJ back in 2007. It was great to bump into them again and speak with them for a few minutes.
When I arrived early to begin setting up equipment it seems that the military bases have all changed their vendor policies. They will only allow vendors to begin setting up equipment one hour prior to the start time of the reception. This makes things very difficult for vendors because it limits what we can do. Today I was also providing ceremony music so one hour before start time of the reception is exactly when I was supposed to start music outside at the ceremony. How am I supposed to set equipment up inside when guests are arriving and I am playing music outside? Doesn’t make sense and doesn’t make things easy for vendors. We will see how long this lasts…
The ceremony was held out on the grass overlooking downtown San Diego. I thought the flowers worked well with an early fall themed wedding. Our couple incorporated a unique wedding idea into the ceremony. At one point in the ceremony they sealed a bottle of wine in an engraved wooden box along with two personal notes. They plan on opening the box and the wine on their 1st anniversary.
Cocktail hour was held outside on the large deck. Guests were treated to a nice sunset before entering the Skyline ballroom. The table centerpieces had some interesting varieties of flowers, fruits, etc. and some rustic lanterns were also spaced out on multiple tables.
After dinner we opened up the dance floor. Guests quickly filled up the space and were ready to turn up the volume.
Dancing continued until the end and the floor was packed. They normally are very strict here about the ending time but guests were having such a good time they allowed me to play for an extra 20 minutes or so. A great way to end the evening!
