Brian and Buu - Citizen Hotel Sacramento

Sacramento Wedding DJ

On a rainy Sunday evening, I FINALLY got to work at the Citizen Hotel in downtown Sac, whatta great place!! I will admit, it would have been nice to have a 'roadie' for this gig, because loading from the street to the 7th floor terrace is a bit of a challenge, but so worth it when you see the view from above!

I met Brian and Buu some months ago, and we just clicked. Kate Miller Events was kind enough to refer them to me, and I just knew that this wedding was my kind-a gig, because they just wanted me to bring the funk. The evening began with their ceremony under the 'Chuppa,' a Jewish tradition. Once married, everyone went down to the lounge on the 2nd floor, and I went to work on lighting up the room in lounge blue (see pic above). After an hour, the guests were invited back up, and the wedding party followed. B&B had chosen individual tunes for each of the party as I introduced them, and with the crowd in a frenzy, the newlyweds entered to 'Now That I Found Love,' by Heavy D. Brian couldn't resist, and went down to the floor in the splits!!

Everyone enjoyed a festive dinner, and I think I saw the toast of the year (maybe it's a bit early for that prediction), but his best men sang karoake to Piano Man, of course with custom lyrics! Although their voices made you appreciate Billy Joel that much more, their routine was a riot. Brian gave a very heartwarming speech, and then it was party time. We danced and danced, they conga'd, they E-slid, Brian did a sexy garter dance, and we just had a grand time.
