Wedding at Battleground Country Club

This past Saturday, Ambient DJ had the pleasure of performing at Janice and Jonathan's wedding reception held at the Battleground Country Club located in Manalapan, NJ.  The big news of the week was  an intense heat wave with temperatures exceeding 105 degrees in the local area.  Janice and Jonathan judiciously opted to move their onsite ceremony indoors.

Ambient DJ provided sound reinforcement for the wedding ceremony, as well as cocktail hour music and a video slideshow during the reception. Beautiful classical music for the ceremony was provided by The Rose Trio.  At the ceremony, the rabbi told, in an entertaining way, the story of how Janice and Jon met, about each of their individual character traits, what makes their relationship tick, and about their plans for the future.

The ballroom at the Battleground Country Club is spacious with high ceilings and beautiful views of the golf course. We have fond memories of performing in this ballroom at a private party thrown by Marc Ecko for his mother's 60th birthday.  Today, to match the bridesmaids' and groomsmens'  royal blue ensembles, we backlit our DJ facade in blue.

Ocean City, Maryland is one of the couple's favorite vacation spots.  For the reception, tables were named for points of interest in Ocean City (e.g., White Marlin).  In my opening remarks for the wedding reception, I randomly called out some table names in order to engage the crowd.  The grand entrance went smoothly, and Janice and Jonathan enjoyed their first dance to a country track by Thompson Square called "Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not."  

The guests, not wilted by the heat, enjoyed dancing both before and after the main course.  Dancing kicked into high gear after dinner, with a lively hora medley that had both the bride and groom being lifted in chairs.  For the remainder of the evening, guests enjoyed a mix of ballads, oldies and modern dance music.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Roth hit the dancefloor!
