7/7/12 – Peter And Amy Matheny Wedding Reception

Posted in Weddings at 12:12 pm by Administrator

This was an extremly fun wedding. Fun was had by all. This was another wedding at a historic location this time is Sturbridge, MA at the Publik House. I arrived around 4:15pm and did not have to start loading in until 5:00pm. I went inside to take a look around to see the room I was DJing in. It was an old Barn that was done really nicely for events. Very high cellings. I met the DJ who DJed the wedding before mine his name was Jordan Lynch of Connecticut’s DJ Entertainment. He was packing up and I was chatting with him about what he runs for a system and told me his QSC stuff was loaded into his Pathfinder and he just decieded to bring his trailer instead that had his backup gear and extra speakers. He also menchined to me he ran the QSC KLA series with a KW181 Sub for the wedding he just finished and that was something to see. I have always like that line just a bit pricey for me. He also menchined he ran Serato so his rig was small just like mine. After about 20 mins he was packed up and on his way back to Connecticut. I started loading in and talked to Josh the Matre’d and his crew struck the table for me since I use my own that I custom made.

After about 30 mins loading in I starting setting up. Got everything done in an hour and 1/2 taking my time.

Above picture was final setup. This has become my Advanced Package.

I started to hear the string quartet which ment we were close to 8pm when I was going to start. I usually will wear something to setup in so I do not ruin my formal clothing. around 7:45pm Josh opened the doors and I started playing dinner music while the guests entered. around 8:05 I lined up the bridal party which was short only 10 people.

Dinner service was great. The photographers were great to work with as well and to my surprise there was 2. I usually only end up working with one. Normally I put a time line together. I suggest that her and Josh put it together since this was my first time working at the Publik House. I ended up getting a copy which was nice.

After I introduced the bridal party Amys mom Janet got up and gave a very nice welcome speech. Then we had 2 courses served and then we did the cake cutting.  Then we had the main course of Stuffed Baked Chicken or Baked Fish. Shortly there after we had the toast by the Brides Father and then the Best Man. We then proceded into the first dance and the Father/ Daughter Dance. The groom was not fond of doing a Mother/ Son Dance so we ommitted it and he ended up dancing with his mom about half way through Amy and her dads dance which I thought was really nice.

I started the open dancing off with the Bridal Party dance and then went into open dancing. I could tell everyone was ready to have a good time from my introductions cause I did not have to ask there guests to make noise a second time.

Amy also wanted to have a guest last dance and then have all the guests join them for the last dance before the evening ended. The night ended around 11:30pm. I was home by 2:30am so it was a really long day for me.

In the end the  Peter, Amy and there guest had a great time.
