“Last Night a Photographer Saved My Life…”

Kimberly & Jonathan could not have asked for a more beautiful day for their wedding at the Drumore Estate in Pequea, PA. The ceremony was held in the garden on the grounds under a blue sky. The cocktail hour was held on various patios and on a lawn surrounding the estate, with a live duo playing Irish tunes. The guests then make their way into the dining area. That is when someone turned to me and asked “Where is the DJ??. Jonathan said they left numerous messages but had not received any response. Long story short, I pull out my powerbook and start making playlists. I turn to the Irish Band and they contribute their gear and next thing you know, I am now the impromtu DJ on the wheels of steel?. I must say it was quite fun. I had a 70’s & 80’s section, and then a little swing?. But the most important song I happen to have on my computer was their first dance song. Talk about divine intervention! Based on the number of people I had dancing, I think my first gig as a DJ was a hit. I even started taking requests!

So there are two morals to this story. One, meet the actual people/vendors that will be on site the day of your wedding before you hire anyone. Also, don’t be afraid to ask for references from previous brides. All of my clients are family to me, and I love when there are interactions between my previous brides and stories shared. The second moral to the story is: hire me for your wedding and you will have no worries.
