The Crosby Wedding: Tom and Jamie

The Crosby Wedding: Tom and Jamie

The Crosby is located in Rancho Santa Fe, San Diego, California.  Surrounded by large estates, golf courses, resorts, beautiful views and winding roads, The Crosby is one of San Diego’s most elegant Wedding Venues.  Tom and Jamie came to find my services via search engines.  We discussed details leading up their wedding concerning the wedding ceremony, reception, dance lighting and uplighting.  There was no wedding coordinator other than the onsite; Tom and Jamie did an outstanding job creating a beautiful event for their guests.

Tom and Jamie had planned for a lot of songs in the itinerary.  From a fun and upbeat entrance, to lots of time scheduled for dancing and special events, it was high energy from start to finish in an absolutely beautiful venue.  One of the most fun things of the night, also it was one of the most unique, was Tom and Jamie’s idea of doing a “kissing game”.  I had never done anything like this before, so it was pretty fun to see.  I am pretty sure no one had any idea of what was going to happen, not even the Bride and Groom.Basically, I announced that “This is the kissing game.  We’ll draw couples out of a hat and they have to come up and kiss in front of everyone.  The Bride and Groom will then have to do the exact same kind of kiss”.Sure, this could go a number of directions.  People could be shy and simply opt out, or… they could do what happened at Tom and Jamie’s wedding and that is, show the Bride and Groom something they won’t forget.  The first couple was rather shy, nothing too embarassing or over the top.  The 2nd couple however, really really kissed.  The third couple, were parents of the Groom and even they were not shy at all, making the most of the game.  But really, this is one of those “you just had to be there” kind of moments.

Thanks Tom and Jamie for inviting me to be a part of your wedding day.  I had a great time entertaining your guests and was honored to be your DJ.
