A few weeks ago I was the DJ for Tony and Niya’s wedding at Hartleys Botanica Gardens, one of our most frequented Wedding Reception sites in Ventura County. This couple had several unique ideas at their wedding, but most impressive was their very different approach to the Bride and Groom’s 1st dance. Everything was prearranged with me, the Master of Ceremonies, so I knew how to organize this special moment to make it easy for the guests and perfect for the Bride and Groom. We had all the guests, 150 in total, come up to the dance floor and make a big circle around the floor where the Bride and Groom would soon bask in this beautiful limelight. Then, the guests were given candles to light from the unity candle. The end result was truly moving. This was one of the prettiest 1st Dances I have ever seen in over 17 years of working as a Wedding DJ. If you’re having an outdoor wedding, you may want to consider this idea. You will need to check with your venue first, and most likely you’ll need some type of fire permit. I can’t offer much more advice on that but I can tell you that a Candlelight First Dance is stunning and truly unforgettable! Just take a look at that photo again.
Photographer was Ventura County wedding photographer Sun-dancephotography.com the lovely Blendi was shooting this wedding!
Sharing in the evening along with Elegant Event Entertainment and Sun-Dance Photography and making the day perfect were Command Performance Catering and Florist’s A Beautiful Day Floral & Event Design and of course on-site coordinator Wendy who is always a great help.
Whether you’re looking for a location, a DJ, or other vendor for your wedding, we hope to hear from you, but also hope you’ll consider the Candlelight Dance for your special day. Happy Planning!
