Gig Log - Amanda & Ryan - Water's Edge in Sea Bright, NJ

On November 19th, Ambient DJ Service had the pleasure of providing music and entertainment for Amanda and Ryan's wedding reception at Water's Edge in Sea Bright, NJ.  We were introduced to this great couple through Joseph K. Brown of Joseph K. Brown Photography.  Joe is one of our recommended vendors and also did the Ambient DJ 2011 corporate photo shoot!

Amanda and Ryan were seeking a cheese-free, high energy dance party among family and friends.  Specifically, we provided music for the onsite ceremony, cocktail hour and reception party.  Water's Edge has a distinctive ballroom, with the sweetheart table located in front of large circular window with an oceanfront view.  We uplit this alcove in red, complementing the black and white color scheme and  red flowers.  We also backlit our DJ facade in red.  One wall of the dancefloor was mirrored, reminiscent of the climactic scene of Bruce Lee's "Enter the Dragon."

What really stood out about Amanda & Ryan's wedding reception was the consistent dancefloor action that began during appetizers, and grew into a frenzied scene in the final hour.  At the bride's request, we dimmed the lights and pumped up the volume.  What an awesome group of party people - this wedding reception will surely rank in our annual Top Ten Best Parties list!

Thank you to assistant Garrett Bargiacchi for a job well done in easing the demanding logistics of the setup.  Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Granato!
