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

September 1, 2009


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.
