DJ & Uplighting for a Sonoma County Barn Wedding

Kayla and Anthony chose an AMS DJ and uplighting for their Sonoma County barn wedding at one of the prettiest Petaluma wedding venues, Olympia’s Valley.  And this wedding reception party was lit!

Not missing one moment, Ken Viale Photography captured everything from Kayla and Anthony’s ceremony to the epic dance party.  Ken is great to work with, professional, and exceptional at helping people feel at ease.

Coordinating Kayla and Anthony’s special day was Blissful Events.  Samar does an excellent job of not missing any details, making sure everything goes smoothly and looks beautiful.  As part of their decor, the bride and groom chose AMS’ wedding uplights in Candlelight White to highlight the barn walls and drapery and it looked amazing!

With the ceremony set next to the willow pond the beautiful bride, Kayla, processed in to “Wildflowers” by Tom Petty, and the new Mr. and Mrs. walked out to “Gypsy” by Fleetwood Mac.  The wedding then moved to the Victorian lawn for cocktails before sitting down to dinner in the meadow.

Guests enjoyed delicious food prepared by Lombardi’s catering, while listening to an awesome music playlist, chosen by Kayla and Anthony through the AMS’ online wedding planner.  “Dancing In the Moonlight”, “Crazy Love”, “Fly Me To The Moon”, “It’s Your Love” and “Isn’t She Lovely” to name a few.

Party Starts with a Great DJ and Awesome Dance Lighting!

Moving on over to the historic barn for dancing and dessert, Kayla and Anthony chose “Breathless” by William Prince for their first dance song.  Followed by the other special dances:  “I Loved Her First” for the Bride and Father dance and “Simple Man” by Lynyrd Skynyrd for Groom and Mother dance.

Then the dance party erupted!!  AMS DJ Joe threw one amazing dance party.  Using some must plays, such as “Pour Some Sugar on Me”, “Tubthumping”, “Despacito”, “Mr. Brightside”, “Uptown Funk” and “Treasure” and mixing in other hits, the dance floor was never empty.

The dance party during the reception was awesome and we are still hearing from all of our friends and family about how much fun people had, and how great the DJ was.  A close friend of ours said to us during the reception that they had never seen a dance floor erupt so quickly at any wedding.”  Kayla & Anthony

Joe was the best DJ we could have imagined for our wedding! The ceremony music blended perfectly (and we didn’t even rehearse with it). He kept the guests groovin on the dance floor all night long. All our guests made comments about how great he was. Highly recommend AMS entertainment. Quick to respond, always there if you have questions, and the added lawn game option was perfect for our ranch wedding. Thank you Joe for making our day that much more special!!
