Ashley and Chad’s Dance Party - Historic Cottage San Clemente Wedding

Chad and Ashley get married at the Historic Cottage at San Clemente State Beach.

San Diego DJ Justin Kanoya with the bride and groom, Ashley and Chad, after their wedding at the Historic Cottage

Chad and Ashley celebrated their wedding day, June 11, 2016 at the Historic Cottage located at San Clemente State Beach. It was my first time there, in fact my first time DJing an event in San Clemente. And now that I’ve gigged between Los Angeles and San Diego, it’s safe I’ve been just about everywhere along the SoCal Coast.

This was a great venue that was perched high up with an amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. It was also conveniently located for the couple's family and friends, a middle point between those that lived in the LA/Orange County and San Diego areas.

But truth be told, Chad insisted on the location because it was as far South from Orange County as the caterer would go … a little-known hamburger joint called In ‘n Out. Yep, it was Double-Doubles, Animal Style all around for their guests. I guess that’s what a Chad and Ashely wedding is all about.

In 'n Out catered the wedding with their famous burgers and fries. 

The night progressed into a fabulous dance party. Here’s a look at the setlist.
