Nella Terra Cellars Wedding – Natalie and Josh gets married!

So this the thing about Sunol, you pass through it and all you see is hills, “But” what’s hidden behind those hills will want to make you comeback every weekend, from wineries to the small historical downtown with so much lore and history.
Going back to the Hills, going up on Sheridan Rd. you’ll find this oasis and truly this is what it looks like, as you arrive you find a huge metal barrel that at night illuminates, you can seat inside and take some amazing photos, to your right you’ll find the vines and a welcoming arch with and endless road of stairs (well it does end) but it takes you to the main part of the venue, to the left you have the cozy courtyard giving entrance to an immense White Tent where the receptions are held, to the right you’ll find the ceremony area with with a cast iron custom made pergola, just beautiful for ceremonies as it can be used as it’s or decorated in so many ways, I’ve officiated ceremonies there plenty of times and it’s breathtaking seeing the bride making her way down the stairs surrounded by the vines.
It doesn’t end there, remember the oasis? go to the other side of the bridge (because yes the do have one) and you’ll find fountains, a mini pond, benches, endless flowers and do you love a game of Bocce Balls? they have a court too!
Oh back to the main part and attraction, the Bride and Groom, Natalie and Josh what a fun couple, you’ll hear me repeat this many times in my blogs and maybe because I’ve been blessed to work with so many great couples and they were fun ones to work with, we got their event going from the cocktail hour to the very end, when the guests were chanting for one more song, young and younger were dancing till the very end not matter what I played and you can hear it and see it on the video.
We provided DJ-MC, Ceremony Coverage, Uplighting, Photobooth, and Monogram Projection.

Natalie was so kind to write us a review online:
David was our DJ for our wedding at Nella Terra Cellars in September. He was great! He pays so much attention to all of the little details, he even helped make our day of timeline run smoother! The online planner made choosing our music so easy and it was a great tool to have! We got so many compliments on how smoothly the night went and how fun the music was! David also provided the photo booth, which was also a huge hit! He had so many fun props! We would 100% use David again for another event!

The Gardens at Heather Farms Wedding – Kelly and Kevin get married

April brings the best of The Gardens at Heather Farms, the simplicity yet knowing that you are surrounded by such a beauty of nature makes this venue a perfect spot to have your ceremony by the Gazebo surrounded by mounts of roses overlooking the pond, afterwards drift into the Pavilion adjacent to the gazebo for the cocktail hour to acquaint yourself with old friends (or new), family members, just about an hour after when I make the announcement inviting everyone into the reception room, from there on is just memories, great food, memorable speeches and a night of unforgettable dancing.
The above was true for Kelly and Kevin’s wedding but also every wedding I do at the at this Magical Hidden Place in Walnut Creek.
To be hones my last few weddings have been interesting because they all have had something in common “Music” well duh! right? what I mean is the styles of music my couples like but also know their guests enjoy: Oldies, Classic Rock, 80’s and a big comeback 90’s Pop and Hip Hop.
