Dance party at Russian River Vineyards Wedding

“Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You”  by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons was their first dance together as Mr. and Mrs.  Following the first dance, Ashley and Tommy chose a unique way of doing the groom / mother dance.  Tommy started off dancing with his mom to “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts.  Partway through the song, Tommy’s dad stepped in to dance with his mom so Tommy got the change to dance with his grandma.  Ashley and her mom also dance together, sharing in this very special moment.

And then the dance floor opened up!  Stopping only briefly for scrumptious wedding cake, provided by Costeaux French Bakery, AMS DJ Emil had the dance floor packed.  Using AMS’ online music planner, Ashley and Tommy customized their playlists with some of their favs.  Playing some favorites such as “Fireball” and “Back It Up” by Pitbull, “So What” by Pink, and “Yeah” Usher.  DJ Emil did a great job of mixing all-time favorites with other great tunes to create a killer dance party.

We decided to hire AMS because their pride and focus was on “keeping the dance floor full.” It was hard to understand exactly what would make one DJ better than another in that regard, but once dancing kicked off, it was crystal clear. Skip expertly built off of our requests and read the crowd to make sure everyone was having the absolute best time and the dance floor was never empty.
