Creatively low-key, rustic wedding at Mt. Woodson Castle in San Diego, CA

Jordan and Zach and their rustic outdoor wedding at Mt. Woodson Castle was the perfect fit for us here at Behind the DJ Booth. They wanted a fun, low-key, non-stop dance party vibe for their wedding and that is exactly what we specialize in!

This creative and sweet couple found us on Green Wedding Shoes where we are a preferred vendor. They are Michigan natives who moved to sunny San Diego a few years ago. They love the beaches, the sun, and the laid back vibes of North County San Diego. They invited all of the friends and family from Michigan to their wedding at Mt Woodson Castle in Ramona, California. It was a destination wedding for all of their Michigan friends, family, sorority sisters, and fraternity brothers to enjoy. Their San Diego friends also joined the festivities. 

Both Jordan and Zach are creatives at heart who love the California sun and laid-back vibes. Both wanted a laid back and yet fun wedding that reflected their love for indie rock, 90's hip hop and R&B, and a few pop hits. They hired an acoustic guitarist, Thomas Giglio, who played during the ceremony and cocktail. With that in mind, I played music during dinner that complimented the songs performed earlier by the guitarist but added a more upbeat twist. Some of the artists I played include Alabama Shakes, Passion Pit, Jamie xx, and Chet Faker. When the dancing came, I knew that playing current hits like The Weeknd, Avicii, and Beyonce would get the crowd on the dance floor. I also played a lot of 90 and early 00's hits from artists like Juvenile, Ying Yang Twins, and Missy Elliott. 

The wedding party and all of their guests danced non-stop. We even had a fun moment during the middle of the dance party, when one of Jordan's sorority sisters asked us they could chant their anthem. All the girls chanted and promptly after, Zach's fraternity brothers did their own chant! It was an awesome personal touch right in the middle of their dance party!
