Fabian and Mickela’s wedding included a host of “firsts” for me:

  • First time to DJ a wedding in Palm Springs
  • First time renting a cargo van to haul equipment
  • First time to include a silent disco element at a wedding
  • First time to have a post wedding meal inside a casino (The casino was the best option at 1 a.m. in Palm Springs.)

But more on this wedding. It took place at Casa Cody, a funky inn in Palm Springs (which is probably how all inns are described in Palm Springs) on September 16, 2017. They essentially took over the entire complex, as their ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were held in various places within the venue. The whole event had a cool vibe, with Miho catering, a pour over coffee bar and even a group sing along.

    Oh yeah, the silent disco too. Because of strict noise ordinances in Palm Springs, amplified music is not allowed after 10 p.m. But when we broadcast music to personal headphones to all the attendees, that is no longer an issue … and the party continues till Midnight.

    Here’s a look at the setlist, including the silent disco -- which of naturally has many sing along songs!
