Keller/Stunkel Wedding at Concannon Vineyards

Christie Keller and David Stunkel were married on Labor Day Weekend, September 4, 2010. Their ceremony and cocktail hour took place at Concannon Vineyard in Livermore, CA. It was a gorgeous September day and the ceremony was quite beautiful. The cocktail hour took place under a picturesque arbor located right next to the Vineyard. Casey MackKenzie, of Casey MacKenzie Photography, captured some truly amazing images throughout the night. Ryan Etchyson of REMedia was the videographer for this event and was able to capture some truly unforgettable moments from the evening.

Christie and David held their reception at the home of the Mother of the Bride, whose breathtaking property was just a few miles from Concannon Vineyards. Cabana Dave’s catered the delicious cocktail hour and reception dinner. There were many personal touches to the wedding; including a dessert bar that was inside the pool house and featured exquisite desserts  by SweetieCups SF. The specialty cake for Christie and David was from Lori Ammerman of Especially Created Cakes. The long King’s table was adorned with Flowers by Kelly Cook of Heaven Scent Florals. The Coordination of the wedding was done by Jill Sandy of Collective Talents and she was truly a pleasure to work with.

Congratulations Christie and David. It was truly a pleasure to a part of your wedding!

Hoffee/Prato Wedding-Oak Farm Vineyards

On April 17, 2010, I headed to Lodi, California, with Jillian Jackson, our awesome DJ Assistant.  We drove into the Central Valley, and arrived a short while later in Lodi’s growing Wine Country.  Oak Farm Vineyards was where the wedding ceremony and reception were held.  A gorgeous family owned property, the reception inside the barn was utterly picturesque.  So many unique touches, and for a small, lovely party of loved ones.
Michael Hoffee, the father of the bride, had painted several canvases of beautiful flowers, and they hung on the wall in the barn.  Gorgeous to look at, much like the wonderful cake that was perched near a painting.  River City Cake Co. made a beautiful cake.
Scott Andrew, it was such a pleasure to meet you and work with you!  Scott Andrew Photography is featured here on our blog, and I must give him major kudos for a job well done.

Anna and Anthony, congratulations on your marriage!  Thank you for including us in your amazing day, I had an absolutely fun time dj’ing your wedding.  One of the most fun I’ve ever had!

The Wedding of Christoph and Lanelle at Rios Lovell Winery in Livermore, California

I had the pleasure of DJing Christoph and Lanelle’s wedding on June 6, 2009 at Rios Lovell Winery in Livermore, California. The ceremony took place at the gazebo overlooking the vineyard in full bloom; it looked amazing. Karl Eckel, from Delford West Flowers, did the flowers for the wedding. The flowers he placed around the gazebo were stunning. He also added flowers to the cake and turned the cake from ordinary to astonishing. I was able to work with Erica Ramos from Erica Foto in San Francisco, California. They were so much fun to work with. When it came time to do the bouquet and garter toss, all of the brides’ single friends said they didn’t want to do the bouquet toss. Lanelle wanted to throw the bouquet, so she decided not to have Christoph toss her garter.  Instead, she decided to throw the bouquet to the single guys.  Everyone had a smile on their face when I made the announcement and the guys all went for the bouquet. The only catch was that the guy who caught it had to give it to one of the single ladies. I want to wish Christoph and Lanelle the best of luck and hope they have a great time on their honeymoon on the Cook Islands.
