Recently we had the chance to be a part of Kerri & George’s wedding at one of the nicest venues New Jersey has to offer, The Palace at Somerset Park. This venue is absolutely beautiful inside and out. The ballroom’s are amazing and the grounds are just gorgeous and perfect for pictures! On top of that this unique wedding was an absolute blast.
One of my favorite moment’s of the wedding happened right before the first dance. During introductions the guests were cheering and clapping, they couldn’t wait for the bride and groom’s grand entrance. We welcomed Kerri and George into the west ballroom and had the energy through the roof. But rather then heading to the center of the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife Kerri and George surprised everyone with a little personal flair and I thought it was so cool.
Just so you know the history Kerri and George are very much into martial arts and from my knowledge Kerri’s father used to be a boxer. The couple had personalized boxing robes made prior to the wedding which no one attending the wedding had known about. So before their first dance they headed to the corners of the dance floor as if the dance floor were a “boxing ring.” They then put on their robes and met at the center of the floor. I then played into the whole bit by giving a little speech as if I were a ring announcer which was pretty fun. “Alright I want to see a clean dance, George keep your hands above the belt… Kerri’s dad is directly across the dance floor and he’s quite the contender.” It was super fun, we had everyone laughing and it was very unique. After our short skit Kerri and George headed back to their corners where they took the robes off and then met back in the center for their first dance.
This is exactly why I love being a wedding DJ. I love being a part of these fun moments!
