Jaclyn and Dan's Dance Party - San Diego Botanic Garden Wedding

Jaclyn and Dan's first dance during their wedding at the San Diego Botanic Garden.

Jaclyn and Dan's first dance during their wedding at the San Diego Botanic Garden.

Jaclyn and Dan are a couple from the Bay Area that made their way down to San Diego for an amazing wedding with friends and family. Their celebration took place at the San Diego Botanic Garden, a venue I had never worked at wedding at in my 14 years of DJing weddings in San Diego. That all changed the week of their wedding, as I ended up DJing two weddings at the venue in the same week!

This reception also provided an opportunity to mix together a custom first dance for Jaclyn and Dan. They loved the song XO, sung by both John Mayer and Beyonce and had a hard time choosing which version to dance to. So why not both?

I mixed a version that started with Mayer and then segued into the Queen Bey with a little backbeat. Fun times ... as was this whole wedding.

Check out the setlist and photos below:
