DJ Dev met Rob Martin and Natasha Brisson in January at the Bridal Bazaar and shortly thereafter, Natasha contacted us to DJ her wedding in August. The wedding was originally scheduled to take place at the Old Richland School House in San Marcos, but because of forces beyond Rob & Natasha’s control the venue abruptly closed and they were forced to find a new venue less than 2 months before their wedding. It was nothing short of a miracle that they found an opening at Paradise Gardens in Oceanside, a venue that I had never been to but had heard many good things about. Once arriving there, I was blown away by how gorgeous it was and how welcoming and accommodating the staff was. The ceremony began with Rob’s Groomsmen walking across the path to the alter like a scene from the Beatles’ “Abbey Road” cover art. They were followed by Natasha’s Bridesmaid, flower girls and finally the beautiful bride Natasha escorted by her father Karel. The ceremony was amazing and concluded with Mr. & Mrs. Rob & Natasha Martin walking back down the aisle surrounded by a cloud of bubbles being blown by their guests. After Cocktail Hour, the new couple were introduced and went directly into their first dance to “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz. Dinner was then served followed by toasts from the Father of the Bride, the Maid of Honor and the Best Man. Natasha and her father then shared their special dance to “Somewhere Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful World” by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole and were joined by Rob and his mother — and then I officially opened the dance floor playing a variety of oldies, current pop chart toppers and some Hatian music to show appreciation for Natasha’s heritage. We broke for Cake Cutting which was held in the gazebo and as Rob and Natasha made their way back to the reception area, they were surrounded by their guests holding sparklers provided by Paradise Gardens. Natasha then did her bouquet toss to “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” by Beyoncé followed by Rob removing and tossing the garter to “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye. At that point I kept the dance floor packed for the rest of the evening and closed with a very fitting last song chosen by Natasha, “The Time (The Dirty Bit)” by Black Eyed Peas. This was by far one of my favorite weddings of the month, if not of all time. Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Rob and Natasha Martin and I hope you enjoy the candid photos and special tribute video below that I created as my gift to you. 🙂
