The Masters Group was featured on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night during their Twitter #Late Night Hashtag segment. The hashtag was for #FakeJayzLyrics since his new album came out this week. There were thousands of submissions and yours truly, @MastersGroupDJ was selected by Jimmy and performed by Tariq and The Roots.

How cool is that?

One of the best parts of my job as a wedding DJ is that I get to meet all kinds of great people, from all walks of life, at different stages in their journey to getting married. I met with Michelle & Bobby in the summer of 2012 to discuss their vision for their wedding and how The Masters Group works to make it fun, easy to plan, and memorable. I knew when I met the young couple that this would be a fantastic event and I was right!

The color theme was black and white with pink accents to match the bridesmaids. It looked classy and elegant.

The Wedding Ceremony and Reception was held at The Brandywine Manor House Inn in Honeybrook, PA. A beautiful open setting with multiple outdoor and indoor ceremony sites, the spacious main ballroom, and the new Manor House Barn circa 1794. The Masters Group provided music for the ceremony which was held at The Lakeview site. Once the ceremony was over everyone headed indoors to the main ballroom to enjoy butlered hors d’oeuvres and cocktails from the event’s caterer, Sage Catering. I have been lucky enough to work with the team at Sage at many events and I can truly say, they are the best of the best!

After cocktail hour, the large bridal party was introduced and the bride & groom made their entrance. They danced to Bryan Adams – All For Love for their first dance. The toasts followed by the Maid of Honor (sister of the bride who is a wedding planner and helped plan the event) and Best Man (brother of the groom). Both were entertaining, touching, and from the heart. After dinner the dancing begun as I played a mix of great music selected by the bride & groom along with some dance floor faves that I felt would work after reading the crowd. The group was energetic, fun, and everyone had a great time on the dance floor!

The pink uplighting really added a magical touch to the dance floor as the bride & groom and guests danced the night away.

I want to thank Michelle & Bobby for letting me be a part of their wedding. It was an honor and a lot of fun working with them. Also, thanks to Nancy, Gordon, and Dan at BMHI for a wonderful evening. And last, but not least, to Sage Catering for another fantastic event. We love working with Dana, Ed, Greg, Liz and the team at Sage!
