When it comes to DJing weddings I sometimes meet people for the first time on their wedding day. There are times when I meet couples via a mutual friend, before they are engaged and eventually DJ their wedding. And sometimes I meet someone who isn’t even dating anyone and years later, I end up DJing their wedding.

Such is the case with Sheri and how I came to be the DJ of her and Jason’s wedding at the Lodge at Torrey Pines on September 2, 2017.

Sheri and I met at Torrey Pines State Preserve in early 2014. I was attending a run club meet up she was leading in early 2014. Fittingly, three years later, we were just a few miles from that spot, celebrating her and Jason’s wedding at the Lodge.

It was one of those “over the top” beautiful events. An outdoor dining space overlooking the famed Torrey Pines 18th green and then moving inside to a dance space that we dubbed “Club Kimmel.”

And what a dance party it was. While we had a few short dance sets during dinner, it was inside where things cranked up. With just a couple of hours, there was no time to build up, just hit hard with some great dance tracks filled in with plenty of the bride's favorite, Justin Timberblake.
