L'auberge Del mar Wedding: Jared and Katherine

L'auberge Del mar Wedding: Jared and Katherine

Jared and Katherine came to find my services via an internet search in 2010, nearly a year before their wedding.  I was happy to get to finally work a wedding at L’auberge Del Mar as I had heard so many good things about it, but hadn’t had the opportunity to DJ a wedding there.  It was an absolutely beautiful wedding, from the ceremony to the reception.  Jared and Katherine were such nice people and a pleasure to work with.  It was truly an honor to be a part of their wedding.

Jared and Katherine had their wedding ceremony right on the deck, near the Pool at L’auberge Del Mar, overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  The officiant of the wedding was referred by me, one of my best friends Michael Buckley.  He actually officiated my wedding as well, and does it professionally.  He teaches literature and creative writing at UCLA and CSU Dominguez Hills.  Katherine and Jared wanted something non-denominational, but eloquent as well.  Mike is the absolute best choice in my opinion, for this request.

After the ceremony, the guests had cocktail on the patio, followed by Dinner in the reception hall.  We had lit the room with an orange, rustic uplighting, as well as the dancing lights for atmosphere later in the evening.  The room was elegant and packed full of people–I’ve found that this is actually good for dancing.  To have a rather packed room, instead of a room that is really large and seems empty.  Jared and Katherine’s guests enjoyed the dance floor, the drinking and dancing throughout the rest of the evening making for an absolutely beautiful and memorable wedding reception.

Thank you Jared and Katherine for allowing me to be your wedding DJ.  I truly had an amazing time with your guests, the photographer Jenna, and the wedding coordinators at L’auberge Del Mar.

Here is what Jared had to say about the DJ Service:

Matt did an incredible job at our recent wedding.  He has a gift for managing the flow of an event and a knack for setting a classy vibe.  Numerous people have told me that we had the perfect wedding and much of that credit goes to Matt.
