On February, 21st the Wolfeboro Inn put on its first bridal show event of the 2016 season. This event was planned by wedding coordinator Nicole Gosselin, who did an excellent job of giving guests a taste of what they might experience if they have their wedding at the Wolfeboro Inn. As a DJ, I attended the event to share with potential wedding couples my services.
The room was inviting. Beautiful blue up lighting provided by the Wolfeboro Inn, captured the feeling of a traditional winter wedding and added to a calm atmosphere. The ballroom tables were draped in bright white table clothes, with a golden lining. Wedding couples were able to move throughout the room and see the possibilities for their own event plans. As I set up my DJ decorations, I chose to use my white façade to match the theme of the room. Since the afternoon was primarily focused on the appetizers, formal dinner choices, and dining possibilities, I chose to start my set with smooth jazz and American standards, styles of music which evokes feelings of calm and love. Jazz tends to be an excellent choice for formal dinners or cocktail hours as it allows for a subtle mood that gives guests opportunities to engage in conversation. Because I only had two hours to showcase my set, I chose to break my set up into four distinct styles. After playing classic and contemporary jazz, I blended in classic dance music, which includes frequent requests for the first dance. The third part of the set consisted of R&B, soul, and country music. I finished my performance with more modern music styles, such as modern hip-hop, pop, house, and reggae. These styles are most often requested for the dancing of guests at a wedding. As I played I could see people moving in their seats in rhythm with the music. At the end I was grateful for the positive interactions I had with the guests and pleased to see so many people excited by the event. Nicole did an amazing job of planning this event and for those of you who missed it, mark your calendars for March and book soon before the next event is filled!
