Erika and Jake's Dance Party - Admiral Kidd Catering & Conference Center Wedding

Jake and Erika get married at the Admiral Kidd Club in San Diego, CA. 

Jake and Erika are two friends of mine that I met nearly two years ago. The three of us regularly attended local workout groups like November Project and Lululemon Run Club. They also met each other that way. I got a little fitter and faster. These two fell in love.

It’s always fun DJing parties for friends, especially when that means other friends are guests at the party. Jake and Erika’s party included family and friends from their respective hometowns in Georgia and Iowa, as well as their San Diego friends.

Both the ceremony and reception took place at the Admiral Kidd Catering and Conference Center on September 2, 2016 and it was quite the dance party. It included a sing along to Wilson Phillips’, “Hold On.” And really I can never get enough of that song.

Here’s what else was on the setlist.
