Tonight was a rare Thursday night wedding downtown at the W Hotel San Diego. The ceremony and reception were scheduled to be held outside at their “beach” area (with a sand dance floor, fire pits, cabanas, etc.) but two days before the wedding it burnt down. We went into panic mode looking at options to move the venue if they still wanted an outside wedding. The W Hotel offered to close down the majority of their modern lounge style restaurant “RICE” and move the event inside. I think it actually turned out to be a better location because it was a cold evening in San Diego. Guests might not have stayed as long if they were outside.
I was hired to perform as their San Diego wedding DJ, as well as, provide music for the ceremony. The ceremony was held at the top of the stairs with guests gathered around. The candles on the back wall made for a nice backdrop. A great quote from the pastor during the ceremony: “The grass isn’t greener on the other side, it is greener where it gets the most water”. Did you water your relationship today?
Our couple wanted a fun, relaxed, playful wedding. There were a few elements that added to this atmosphere: At the entrance there was a tree with colorful bells on it for the guests to take to be used at the end of the ceremony as the exited. We projected a custom butterfly gobo image onto the ceiling. Their “cake” was actually one of their favorite desserts: a huge cookie. They had a “sexy french fry bar” with various dips and sauces. I used the water effect lights to fill the entire ceiling with moving and rippling water. I kept this set to a nice white light early on until dancing kicked in. Once things got going I switched them over to change color throughout the evening. They only had about 35 guests but they really had an excellent time. I played for about an extra half hour because I was also having a great time and they just kept going…
