Jeff and Sera’s Wedding at Casa Real at the Ruby Hill Winery


On behalf of Fantasy Sound Event Services, I would love to thank Jeff and Sera Park for letting us be a part of their incredibly special day.
I was their DJ for their wedding at Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery.  Our company provided the Event Lighting, which showcased the flowers of Floral Design Studio.  Harpist, Krista Strader started the night off with her beautiful melodies during the ceremony.

Jeff and Sera chose Tyler Vu Photography to capture their day, and, as you can see from these pictures, they surely will not be disappointed.  One aspect of this wedding that was so unique was that, post-ceremony, Jeff and Sera turned the Amber Room into a children’s wedding wonderland.  Movies played on a projector rented from Fantasy Sound Event Services and a mini golf course and carnival games, rented from Pleasanton Rentals, helped the staff of Casa Real create a special place for the children to celebrate.
The day was full of so many unique and incredible touches, from the gorgeous cake and cupcakes from Margaret’s French Bakery to the traditional Korean outfits the couple changed into during the reception; this was truly a day to remember.

Thank you, Jeff and Sera, for coming to us with your dreams, and working with us to turn them into reality!  Congratulations and best wishes from all of us at Fantasy Sound Event Services [but especially Kevin and myself : )]!

The Wedding Of Andrew and Rachel at Casa Real in Pleasanton, California

The Wedding Of Andrew and Rachel at Casa Real in Pleasanton, California.

I recently had the pleasure of being the Master of Ceremonies at the wedding of Andrew and Rachel on July 12, 2009 at Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery in Pleasanton, California.

When I arrived, the guests were enjoying the cocktail hour in the Amber Room, where Krista Strader was playing the harp. The bridal party was outside taking photographs with Dave from Lepori Photography. It was my first time working with Dave and it was a pleasure working with him. He showed me some of the photos he had taken in front of the fountain at Casa Real and they were stunning. When it came time for the formal introductions, I introduced the bridal party to “Let’s get It Started” by The Black Eyed Peas. After dinner was served, the bride and groom presented a slideshow for the guests to watch while they enjoyed their dinner.  Right after the slideshow, we went right into the first dance; Rachel was ready to get the party started! They danced to “Every Time I Close My Eyes” by Babyface. Then we went into the father/daughter and mother/son dances, followed up by the bridal party dance. Once the bridal party dance ended, I introduced the band, Touch N Go. Touch N Go played an hour set, and then I played a couple of songs before the cake cutting. The cake was from Jen’s Cakes in San Jose, California. The cake was incredible, one of the best I have ever seen. Oh, and did I mention delicious?  Once we had finished all the formal events, I threw it back over to Touch N Go. At the end of the night I played the last song, “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. Everyone who was still there got up and on to the dance floor and danced around the Newlyweds. Congratulations to Andrew and Rachel on their spectacular day.
