Classic Wedding at the Estate on Second with a Star Wars Surprise

Ceremony in Santa Ana, CA

Mike and Melanie decided to work with Behind the DJ Booth when they were recommended by LanAnh from Mele Amore Events. They wanted someone who could play a great mix of classic rock, funk, 80s, and some pop music.  Melanie especially likes The Beatles and Mike was in a band so Michael was sure to play music that fit both of their interests. 

The wedding had a timeless and classic feel from the venue to Melanie’s dress. The venue was at the Estate on Second in Santa Ana, Orange County, CA. Michael and the wedding planner were able to help Melanie pull off a couple of surprises she had for Mike throughout the day. The first surprise was when she had him play the Star Wars main title song during the grand entrance and then when lightsabers were handed out to guests on the dance floor. Both surprises were pulled off without a hitch and the lightsabers really added a fun element to the dance floor. 

The overall musical theme and vibe Michael created was inspired by classic rock and soul funk music.  Michael made sure to play a lot of bands similar to The Beatles, Commodores, The Isley Brothers, Tuxedo, Prince, mixed in with the classic rock and soul funk music. If the guests wanted to make a request they had to go up a flight of stairs so Michael knew that if they made the trip then that song was important to them. Michael was sure to play the song if it fit the vibe.

If you’re looking for a DJ to cater to the experience you’re wanting for your guests while delivering superior customer service and quality then contact Michael with Behind the DJ Booth for your next event or wedding at Serving Orange County, CA, all of Southern California, and open to travel.


**DJ tips**

For any surprise performances or other surprises, let your wedding coordinator, DJ, and any other vendors involved know as soon as possible to they can prepare for the surprise.  For Melanie and Mike, LanAnh prepared two timelines; one for the vendors to prepare for the surprise and one for Melanie and Mike (which excludes the Star Wars song and light saber surprise).
