Our bride and groom shook the regular ol' wedding format up by having a long cocktail hour with heavy hors d'oeuvres before their ceremony - the ceremony ended with their first dance and parents' dances, which kicked off the dance party immediately.

We were excited to be part of their rehearsal dinner on Saturday at Chase Palm Park Carousel. Our Jazz band played during cocktail and dinner hours, then DJ Gavin got the crowd up and dancing for the rest of the evening. The next day was their amazing wedding at the Four Seasons Biltmore in the La Pacifica Ballroom. Our Party Band took the main stage and rocked the crowd with DJ Gavin playing in between their sets. Here are some photos of their superb wedding day - and a video of our band in action that night :)
Aniko and David were married on 5/3/13 at the San Ysidro Ranch in beautiful Santa Barbara. We were very honored to be a part of their fabulous day, providing entertainment with our guitarist John at their ceremony and cocktail hour, and DJ Gavin Roy for dinner and dancing at the Hydrangea Cottage. We also provided string lighting in a fan pattern which stretched across the Hydrangea patio.
Here's a cool pic from David from his Facebook page after the wedding:
and a quote from one of their guests after the event:
"Derek and I (and all the other guests!) were incredibly impressed by your talents at Aniko and Dave's wedding a couple of weeks ago - your spinning was off the charts! I've never seen a DJ move so adeptly between genres, and literally keep a packed dance floor all night. We (and all the other guests!) had such a great time at their wedding, due in no small part to your music."
Aniko and David got hitched without a hitch :) thanks to uber-planner Kelly Leonard of Event of the Season, who made sure every detail was perfect! We'll now leave you with a quick video of the dance action:

Their cocktail hour was on the El Mar patio, and the quartet played a mix of pop and classic favorites. Our amazing wedding planner was Rebecca Gigandet who made sure the entire day went perfect for Katharine and Christian.
During dancing, our couple made special song dedications to guests and special groups of friends and family - fast ones, slow ones, and even outrageously fun ones. We also played the Canadian National Anthem for the arrival of the late night snack - Poutine!
