Wedding Reception at the Renault Winery - Egg Harbor City

Ambient DJ Service had the pleasure of performing at Mindi and Peter's recent wedding reception at the Renault Winery in Egg Harbor City.  What a perfect day for a wedding - sunny and warm with a hint of fall crispness in the evening. The couple learned of Ambient DJ Service from one of our preferred vendors, the Shrewsbury Strings, who performed the onsite ceremony music and referred our services.  Thank you Tony!

The Renault Winery offers a unique and intimate setting for a wedding reception.  Guests enjoyed cocktail hour in a wine cellar known as the Burgundy Room, walking through a wine casket to get there.  The wedding reception was held in the Vintage Room, an old-world style room that includes wine caskets.  The service was friendly, and the food delicious.

Mindi and Peter love good music.  There was to be no line dancing, no Kool & the Gang's Celebration or any other "cliche" wedding DJ fare.  With such great natural character in the room, we opted to use very sparing dance floor lighting, opting for a clean setup with a white facade backlit in yellow to match the flowers. 

Key tracks for the evening included:

Run This Town - Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye West (Grand Entrance)
Theme from Superman - John William (Grand Entrance of Bride and Groom)
As Time Goes By - Frank Sinatra (First Dance)
Somewhere Over the Rainbow - "Iz" (Father-Daughter Dance)
The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face - Robert Flack (Mother-Son Dance)
First Day of My Life - Bright Eyes (cocktail/dinner)
Here Comes My Baby - Cat Stevens (cocktail/dinner)
We're Going to Be Friends - The White Stripes (cocktail/dinner)
Everyday - Buddy Holly (cocktail/dinner)
Just One Thing - My Morning Jacket (cocktail/dinner)
Let's Go Crazy - Prince (Kick-off song for Open Dancing)
Life is a Highway - Rascal Flatts (dedication to Jack!)
You are the Best Thing - Ray LaMontagne (late night ballad)
The Seed (2.0) - The Roots f/Cody Chestnutt (open dancing)
The Edge of Glory - Lady Gaga (open dancing)
No One's Gonna Love You - Band of Horses (cakecutting song)
Bro Hymn - Pennywise (grand finale)

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Strahlendorf!
