Another wonderful wedding to cap off the "unofficial" end to summer 2011. Zach and Alyssa got married over Labor Day weekend, and their reception at Orchard Vali Golf Club in LaFayette was a blast. Their guests love to dance -- keeping the floor filled right up to the end at 11:30pm. The crowd was so enthusiastic, we actually went a few minutes past with an extra encore song.
Before you continue, I need to note I only had a phone camera with me for this one, so please excuse the blurriness you'll see in some of the photos. (This is why I'm a DJ, not a photographer!)
Zach and Alyssa enjoy their first dance, "Then" by Brad Paisley.
The bride and her father dance to "My Little Girl" by Jack Johnson.
The groom and his mother enjoy a dance. I was asked to play the opening line to Steam's "Na, Na, Hey, Hey, Kiss Him Goodbye," but then we faded into "Simple Man" by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
The bride's mother prepared a wonderful slide show with photos from Alyssa's and Zach's childhoods, working gradually up to photos of the two of them as a couple. Originally, my only involvement was to pipe the slide show music through my system and speakers... but when the DVD player and projector wouldn't cooperate with each other, I stepped in to play the slide show DVD out of my laptop.

The rest of the photos were taken during various points throughout the rest of the evening.
Congratulations again to Alyssa and Zach, and thanks for choosing me to be your DJ!
