Kevin and Denise share a post ceremony moment under a tree at the Lodge at Torrey Pines.

Denise and Kevin celebrated a beautiful wedding at the Lodge at Torrey Pines in San Diego. For their first dance, they choose “Lights Down Low” a sweet pop song that was a perfect start to the evening.

It was clear their guests were ready to dance as soon as dinner wound down, because they actually did just that before the floor was officially opened up. I certainly was not going to stop them.

Yoga Sculpt With Katie B; April 2018 - Corepower Yoga

When I’m scheduled to DJ a yoga sculpt class just a few days after the tragic death of Avicii, then it only makes sense to sing more than a few Avicii tracks during the class.

Here’s a look at what I played with Katie B for April 2018 class.

This was another great class. But this text message I received after the class was even better!

Logan and Crystal’s Ponte Winery Dance Party - Temecula Wedding

Crystal and Logan celebrated their wedding at Ponte Winery in Temecula on April 8, 2018.

Crystal and Logan celebrated their wedding at Ponte Winery in Temecula on April 8, 2018.

Logan + Crystal

Every so often I meet with a prospective wedding couple and the connection is instantaneous. It probably helped that Crystal and Logan are dog people and Crystal is a spin/cycle instructor at a studio that I’ve DJ’d a few ties (as well as the weddings for other instructors).

I greatly anticipated their April 8, 2018 wedding, which took place at Ponte Winery in Temecula. There was no shortage of dancing (Crystal, after all dances on a bike weekly). It even included a spectacular tandem maid of honor toast, which was more of a song and dance performance.

Overall it was a great celebration and I look forward to a continued friendship with them!

Here’s a look at the setlist and be sure to scroll to the bottom to see their wedding highlight film.
