Victoria and Adam had their most amazing wedding at the Santa Barbara Zoo. We were excited to be a part of it with DJ and Karaoke services. Karaoke does not always pair with weddings, but when it does, oh what a fun time to be had by all! Here is a video of the bride and groom kicking off the night with a duet :)
Guests were invited to sing a song as a table first, before their table could be excused to the buffet. This broke the ice which had them wanting more. It was a 100% Karaoke wedding at the Zoo <3
Congratulations Victoria and Adam!! Thank you for having us be a part of your big day :)
