Tonight I provided San Diego wedding DJ and lighting services for a wedding at the Inn At The Park Hotel, otherwise known as Park Manor Suites, which is a historic 1926 all-suite boutique hotel and is a San Diego wedding venue that is located near Balboa Park and downtown. The reception space “Top Of The Park Penthouse” is located on the top floor.
There are two nice outdoor patio areas for a ceremony or cocktail hour which can be a perfect setting to enjoy great views of downtown. For some reason there are always amazing sunsets overlooking the water and city when I work here. There is a nice dining area and a permanent bar / dance floor. Jim Harmon is always great to work with. He is always attentive to every detail and truly cares about the outcome of each event.
As you can see in the photo below our bride and groom a made their grand entrance into the hotel from below. One unique wedding idea was to have all of the guests throw flower petals off the seventh floor balcony area as they arrived. It made for some great photos. As their San Diego wedding DJ and MC I then introduced our couple into the ballroom. They made their way directly onto the dance floor and started off immediately dancing (not the first dance) as the mariachi played. They were truly having a great time and I knew it was going to be a fun night!
After cocktail hour guests were seated in the dining area for dinner. As I mentioned earlier I was hired as their San Diego wedding DJ but they also hired me to provide lighting for the reception room. To really set the cake off I spotlighted it from a distance as you can see in the photo at the top. I also set 10 purple uplights throughout the space. After dinner I then invited everyone to gather around the dance floor for the couple’s first dance. This immediately lead into open dancing. They were ready!
It was mainly a Latin group tonight so as their San Diego wedding DJ I was able to play a huge variety of music. I enjoyed going back and forth mixing cumbias into hip-hop and merengue into faster 128 bpm dance music. They enjoyed the variety and it really kept everyone up on the dance floor.
