I always consider the end of April, beginning of May to be the start of the Spring/Summer Wedding Season. This past weekend I had two great weddings to kick-off Wedding Season 2011.
The first was a Brazilian/Italian wedding for Tania & Felipe at the Italian Cultural Centre on Saturday (where I had a pleasant surprise working again with Jason from Jaylena Photography). It was the most beautiful, sunny day in Vancouver which seems to make everyone even happier than usual. I got to play some Italian standards for the Italian guests and some straight up latin party music for the Brazilian guests. When the Brazilian's dance they always do it with finesse and style, especially as they casually busted out some Capoeira dance moves which was phenomenal. The night ended with some house beats and much to my entertainment, spontaneous U2 karaoke!
On Sunday I was the wedding DJ at one of my favourite wedding venues in Vancouver, Brix Restaurant for Tracy & Sebastien's wedding. The food there is always an absolute treat (see my blog "The best risotto in Vancouver") and working with Steph & Justin from Hyperfocus is always great, definitely some of my favourite photographers to work with. All in all, it was a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to being the wedding DJ for many more amazing couples this year!
