Last Sunday, we had the honor of providing music for a great Sunday wedding, at Mercury Hall, in Austin! For their first dance, Gabriela and Fernando had a close friend, play an acoustic song and sing, live! Wow, he blew us all away with his talent! I couldn't help but wonder if he was actually famous, because he sang so amazing! :) We played a great mix of songs and everyone had a blast! It was great to hear someone at the end of the night come up to us and say "wow, I had so much fun! I had to take my shoes off because I danced so much. I can't even walk!" We hear this, often, and we LOVE it! :)
Below, is a quick video of the bride and groom, during "La Vibora De La Mar" (the Sea Snake). This is a traditional Mexican cultural game for weddings. The bride and groom are in chairs, held by guests, holding the veil, while other guests form a line (snake), and run through the middle area. The tempo of the song gets faster and faster, and the line will bump into the bride or groom, while the guests try to keep them from falling. Traditionally, the bouquet and garter toss are done from the bride or groom on the chairs, after. Here are the videos of the bride and groom, below! It's always fun to see!
This past weekend, we provided DJ services for Mr. and Mrs. David, at The Oasis, off Lake Travis, in Austin, TX. We met with the couple a few weeks before their wedding and discussed their wedding details, in person, as we do with all our clients. They informed us that they would have many traditional Indian customs at their wedding, such as a gift giving ceremony and a tea ceremony. The bride and groom, as well as the wedding party, were all dressed in traditional Indian wedding clothing, which was great to see!
The bride and groom's families were from North and South India, so there was a large mix of cultures, including many of their friends and family from the United States. We played a variety of music, ranging from Top 40, to Country and Pop, as well as popular Indian music, which was a lot of fun for us! Everything looked amazing; we're glad to have been a part of Mr. and Mrs. David's special day!
