Hayley+Andrew: Rustic Oaks wedding DJ

Hayley Anderson and Andrew Walsh

Rustic Oaks Wedding DJ

Sunday, August 21st, 2016
Rustic Oaks, Moorhead, MN

Rustic Oaks first dance Yes, a Sunday.  That doesn’t happen too often for me.  A lot of this wedding party was in a wedding I DJ’ed in January, so its nice to see some familiar faces.  In fact, the best man, Andrew’s brother, was the groomsman who helped the best man rap his toast (go find January 9th, Megan and Bobby).

I did play the music for the ceremony, using Rustic Oaks’ sound system.  Very easy.  Best part had to be the exit song.  Thanks to the movie McGruber, Andy and Hayley walked down the aisle to Michael Bolton’s “Love is a Wonderful Thing.”

Other craziness included me Rick Rolling the dance, by Andrew’s request.  Since I knew Lil’ Jon’s “Outta Your Mind” was the favorite, I started that before dropping in Rick Astley.

No Dollar Dance, no garter tonight.

I didn’t bother to mark which songs are requests because almost every single one is, either in advance from Andrew and Hayley, or from guests that evening.

A confession: I did screw up.  I accidentally played Barry Manilow for Hayley and her dad, to start, before fixing it.  My mistake was writing down the songs backwards after Hayley emailed me their final choices.  I have no one to blame but myself.

And speaking of Barry Manilow, Andrew chose it because his mom used to always play Manilow in the car when taking him to school.  Day after day.
