I met Danny Kazmarek and Katie Ehrlich back in February after they saw us at the San Diego Bridal Bazaar in January 2011. I was immediately put at ease by their laid back personalities and especially by Danny’s sense of humor. I was also excited that they wanted to book J. Soul Productions for two events…part one and part two of their wedding. Part One took place this past Saturday, September 10th at the ZLAC Rowing Club. I was excited to return to this venue because of how much fun I had there last Summer for Shamrun & Carly’s Wedding and a week later for Steve & Akiko’s Wedding. I was also excited to work for the first time with Alicia Thorne of CZ Events, making this my second time in a month that I’ve worked with CZ Events. After Ceremony concluded, the guests took a group photo and then proceeded to the patio to socialize to the sounds of John Legend, one of Katie’s favorite artists, and other Neo-Soul R&B artists. Katie’s father Peter gave a welcome followed by a toast from the Best Man Brigg, and the guests were then seated shortly thereafter. After dinner, Mr. & Mrs. Kazmarek took to the floor for their first dance to “Steady As We Go” by the Dave Matthews Band followed by Katie and her father dancing to “Daddy’s Little Girl” by Al Martino and Danny & his mom dancing to “Because You Loved Me” by Celine Dion. The dance floor then opened up and then we took a break for a special Anniversary Dance to “Remember When” by Alan Jackson and Cake Cutting to “I Got You, Babe” by Sonny & Cher. And then I reopened the dance floor playing Top 40, Electro, Hip-Hop, Throwbacks and some Classics. After playing the final song of the night, the guests asked for an encore so after clearing it with the Bride and Groom, I played one more song to give the guests a bit more dance time. They were then asked to head out near the Ceremony area for a sparkler send-off for Danny & Katie. Not only was it an amazing wedding, it was a great indication of how awesome their second celebration next month will be. Please enjoy the photos and special video that I put together for them below. I’m so lucky to have been a part of their special celebration and I can’t wait to party with them again in a little over a month! 🙂
