Samantha and Kylee were one of the happiest couples I’ve ever worked with. From beginning to end, these two ladies were low-key and calm yet fully on-point with how they wanted their wedding music to sound. During our conversations over music, Samantha and Kylee expressed particular love for music by Justin Timberlake and Beyonce. When it came time to decide on specific music for their first dance, they went with John Mayer’s cover of Beyonce’s “XO” and ended with the actual version of Beyonce’s “XO”. In an earlier post
, you’ll see that John Mayer’s cover of Beyonce’s “XO” made it onto my top five non-traditional first dance songs–it was because of what it brought out for Samantha and Kylee. The cover was an intense addition to an already deep love that these two ladies showed for each other as everyone watched them dance for the first time together that evening. As we made it into the dancing part of the night, their guests’ mutual love for Beyonce led me into a superset of her most recent hits including: Formation, Partition, 7/11, Drunk In Love, Feeling Myself, Diva, and Flawless. Though atypical for a wedding, we all rocked out–leaving it all on the dance floor. Samantha and Kylee’s wedding will go down as one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve worked with two of the most beautiful individuals not only because of the usual pomp and circumstance that comes with weddings but far more importantly because of the intensity of the emotions that everyone felt that evening as Samantha and Kylee sealed the deal. Rock on, ladies!
Samantha and Kylee’s WeddingWire Review:
“DJ Dayve was amazing from start to finish! From our very first meeting he was incredibly professional and organized. His online questionnaires and phone meetings kept the planning on track. He also worked closely with our wedding coordinator to create a timeline. During the wedding, he was nothing short of perfection! He kept us moving through the first dances, dinner and the cake cutting. Once the dancing started he made sure the party never slowed down! He had everyone dancing the whole night! We could not have asked for more in a DJ than Dave!!!”
