Wedding DJ in Gonzales TX
Last Saturday, we had a great time providing a wedding DJ in Gonzales, Texas! We also provided a photo booth rental and uplighting for this great wedding at the Gonzales Mansion. The wedding ceremony and reception were all outdoors for this event. It was definitely a hot day, but the giant shade trees and portable fans sure came in handy! We always bring our own fans, for outdoor events, since we know what to expect! 🙂
The mansion is a very beautiful property, both indoors and outdoors. Though it looks like it’s a small outdoor space, it’s actually rather large and perfect for weddings and events! The couple hired an event team to set up outdoor furniture, an outdoor bar, tables, a dance floor, and everything else that was needed.
It all looked amazing once it was ready to go! It literally looked like a custom-built wedding venue. It’s amazing what event teams can do to make your wedding happen. Kudos to those great vendors and all of the family and friends that helped set up everything!
Wedding Reception Music
For the wedding reception, we spoke with our bride and she really wanted a “different” wedding reception. She did NOT want all the same songs you hear at all weddings, to be played. We completely understood this and agreed to play less of the songs she didn’t want, like Line Dances.
The hard part was that she had a vision of being VERY different from all of the other weddings. She said, “I want to play all of the unknown songs and B sides from all of my favorite artists.” As music professionals, we agree to do exactly this.
However, we cautioned her that playing a lot of the songs that were not hit songs, may not keep the dance floor full. People want to dance to the music they know and love. She said, “no, I will give you a list of all the rare songs I want to be played.” We agreed to do exactly this since we want to fulfill our clients’ vision.
Once we started the wedding, we played the songs she wanted, starting with the ones people may know. After about 30 minutes, we had to play rare songs. No one danced and began requesting music. We checked in with the bride, and she then said “please just play whatever works. I want my guests to have fun.”
As any wedding DJ in Gonzales should be able to do, we took over and played what we knew would work, and it did! The guests danced the night away, along with our bride and groom! This is where experience comes in handy! 🙂
Outdoor Wedding Uplighting
For the outdoor area, our bride wanted uplighting all around the property. We placed uplighting on the trees, around the mansion, and around other key areas. She wanted different colors, so we created a different color scheme, just as she asked for.
At night, the lighting really came to life and the whole property really looked great! Here are some photos, below. Congrats, again, to our newlyweds!
