A Winter Wonderland Wedding

Jessica and Callan chose Laguna Beach's picturesque Canyon Lodge for their December, 2012 ceremony and reception.

The couple spoke their vows as wild deer looked on from the distance. For the ceremony we provided a digital sound system and stashed it away from the line of sight. The Wedding DJ placed a Shure wireless lapel mic on the officiant so all in attendance could hear and participate in the ceremony.

Jessica decided on an amazing piano cover of "Turning Page" by Sleeping at Last (from Twilight) for the wedding party processional. The beautiful bride walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of "Flightless Bird, American Mouth" (Wedding Theme - Breaking Dawn).

Later, at the reception, the newlyweds had some fun making their Grand Entrance to the slightly cheesy but heartfelt "You Make My Dreams Come True" by Hall and Oates. 

Custom Gobo

To help turn their location into a Winter Wonderland, we set up several ultrabright uplights with an ice blue color in strategic places. The custom gobo we provided fitted perfectly over the fireplace mantle! We continued the Winter Wonderland theme with intelligent lighting on the dance floor that simulated falling snow.

To top it off, the guests were dazzled while dancing to our colorful Matrix Touch Screen system. Highlights included "Raindrops" by Basement Jaxx, "Shout" by The Isley Bros. and "I Gotta Feeling" by Black Eyed Peas. The brides' father got so excited he started breakdancing!

Wedding DJ- Hear The "Truth"!

Of the top 20 cinema chains in the USA, 75% use JBL sound. That's the truth. JBL speakers are featured in the majority of Dolby and THX installations. And now you can experience the amazing sound of JBL at your wedding or special event.

The Wedding DJ uses JBL SRX715 speakers. According to JBL, these speakers offer, "the highest level of performance available from a speaker that can be placed on a pole or standard speaker tripod stand."

Performance isn't just based on power. It is sound quality that is most important. To my ears, JBL has the best sound. Not overly bassy or brassy, plenty of warm mid range and clarity. I like them better than Mackie, Cerwin Vega and yes, even Bose (overrated IMHO).

The importance of sound quality at special events cannot be underestimated. After all, this is what your guests will be listening to all night long!

"I've used JBL's professional equipment throughout my career as a recording artist and touring musician. I want my fans to 'Hear the Truth,' and that's what JBL delivers."- Sir Paul McCartney
