He's able to play all of the songs we are requesting for a price that other DJ's cannot compete with.
It really does help to know people. Because the DJ is good friends with the reception venue owners, and because he has done multiple events there, he was able to cut us a deal. I love me a good deal! We were instantly drawn to his vibrant personality - he's always smiling!
Just to give ya'll an idea of what type of music we're requesting (these are just a few of many on our list)...
As for mine and Hunter's song for our first dance, we will be dancing to the song titled "My Kind of Woman/My Kind of Man" by Vince Gill and Patty Loveless. Do yourself a favor and go listen to the song on YouTube. I grew up listening to Vince Gill and a few years ago, my dad had this particular song playing over our speakers by the pool. Hunter immediately said, "If we get married, I want this to be our song. It's so good!" Little did he know, it is one of my most favorite songs by Vince Gill. It's funny how things work out, isn't it?
We're very excited, and relieved, that this detail is behind us. And that we actually were so blown away by this man's kindness to help us out that we just couldn't say no. So my advice to anybody looking/considering/questioning a DJ?
Find somebody that instantly clicks with you and your fiance. Hunter and I feel like that because we were able to relate on many things with the DJ, because we know mutual people, and because the guy is just a stand-up kind of man, it really helped make our decision easy.
Looks like we can check this task off of our wedding to-do list!
