Carolyn and Scott Rivers were so cute and excited when we sat down for our first consultation January 27 2010, eighteen months before their wedding day. They had seen me perform as a DJ and MC at weddings before and this always poses a challenge for me since I never want my clients to get someone else's wedding. It's not about the music, lights or decor because those are really surface and don't say much about the couple at all. So it has to be about the content and the content has to be about the Bride and Groom. We took hours in consultations solving their issues, designing a two venue itinerary (Sudbury/Copper Cliff) and fantasizing about how the day would go.
While watching wedding videos one night on YouTube (I'm a serious wedding geek) the idea came to me to make a video using the song Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO and to use the making of the video as a thread that runs the entire day. It would become another tool we could use to motivate the guests and create a new atmosphere of creativity. In other words we told everyone to be hams!
I'll save the details for when the video is done but suffice to say this one will be hard to top. The guests had been warned and they came prepared to celebrate! Let's just say the highlights included everyone dancing out of the ceremony, the Father of the Bride mixing behind my console and seeing the Bride on roller skates!
All of the above lead to one of the most amazing reviews I've ever received. "Bill completely surpassed what we thought would be a great wedding day. He made it so much more amazing that it could have possibly been. He helped plan out the entire day and added his own personal charm to everything he did! We did not have to worry about a thing as we knew that we could trust him to make everything perfect! However you want your day to turn out, just say the word; fun, romantic, relaxing and he will make your dreams come true! He truly cares about you both as a couple and wants to make sure that you feel like you are a guest at your own wedding! We can't thank you enough Bill!!!!!
A special thanks to John Robbie of JoRo Photography for capturing my relationship with this couple perfectly.
