Surfsand Hotel Wedding

A calming wind juxtaposes the turbulent waters along the sandy windswept shore of Cannon Beach Oregon. On this beautiful July summer day, TJ and Kirsten decided to dedicate themselves to each other for all time. We were there to capture the moment and all the small moments along the way that made this such a special event to be a part of.

A Little Summer Rain Won't Stop A Good Wedding

The Roman philosopher Seneca once said, “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity”. There is no better example of this than a recent wedding I provided DJ services for locally.

The late summer wedding held at the beautifully scenic Water Oasis in Newberg Oregon was planned as an outdoor event. A gorgeous sprawl of seating and a running fountain welcomed family and friends from all over the country. Everything was set for a perfect day…until, like clockwork here in the Northwest, the rain decided to fall.

It was at this point that guests and the marriage party could have started panicking. Having questions that anybody in this situation might have like “Is this going to go off as planned?”, “Will the dress get wet?”, and “Will the guests be warm?”.

This is where hiring a professional with experience managing the finer details of hundreds of weddings really pays off. Owing to that preparation I spoke about earlier, we had planned ahead for just a situation. We quickly ushered guests into an indoor seating and dancing area that we had already staged in case the weather didn’t hold up. Sure we had to move some microphones and lighting, especially as the evening rolled in, but this was done seamlessly and our plan worked!

The ceremony and the reception went off without a hitch. The newly married couple danced the night away celebrating with family and friends that had come together to honor them on this very special day marking their commitment to each other and the beginning of their lives together.

When you hire DJ Cutt Entertainment you get a guarantee that no matter what unplanned circumstances come along to spoil your big day, we will use our years of experience to meet any challenges head-on as we always have a backup plan. In this way, you can be sure that the wedding you planned will always be the wedding we deliver!

What better way to start a wedding than to say, “come what may, we prevail – together!”

Why you need a photobooth

3 Reasons Why Photo Booths are This Summer's Wedding Must-Have

3. They’re the Place to Meet Someone New at The Party

Weddings aren’t just a celebration of your love – they’re a celebration of love itself. There’s a high likelihood that your single friends are secretly hoping they might meet someone special at your big party, and sparking that perfect moment with a photo booth is one of the best ways to ensure that.

And it’s not just romantic relationships that might bud at your photo booth –  tons of friends and family who haven’t met each other will finally get to bond over their new outfits, mutual interests, and love of the newlywed couple.

You never know where you’ll meet your new best friend or even The One. Make your wedding the easiest place for that to happen. You might even get a shout out when the next happy couple can say they met at your wedding.

2. They’re a Chance to Throw in Fun Accessories

Crowns, mustaches, top hats, feather boas – and whatever else feels right – are the way to bring down any lingering feelings of stuffiness at the reception. Weddings can be very serious events, but they should also be fun and let folks who have may have just had a good cry find a place to laugh.
 
You can also use these locations as a place to show off your theme or something that represents how you and your partner fell in love. Did you meet at the beach? A sea-themed photo booth experience with pirate hats, sailor accessories, and a mermaid crown could be a shout out to where your story began. Both of you love the rodeo? Bring on the cowboy hats and lassos. This is your chance to poke a bit of fun at yourselves and invite others to find the joy and magic that brought you together.

1. Let the Guests Score Their Own Keepsakes

Sometimes weddings send people home with a weird shot-glass or t-shirt. Sure, it’s cute, but it’s not something that necessarily reminds people of what they enjoyed at the wedding – spending time with you and your loved ones. Photo Booths allow you to print a catchphrase and a date, or other information, on the bottom of the photos. They also let your friends and family share their photos up to their social media pages right away. These photos remind them forever of what they were celebrating and how it felt to be there. 

You’ll already have a professional wedding photographer wandering around gettign the candid shots. You’ll want the funnier moments of Aunt Cheryl blowing a kiss to her sister in a feather boa when it’s all said and done.
