THE OAKSIDE MANSION – STEPHANIE & PETE
One of the great things about being a wedding DJ in NJ is being a part of so many fall weddings. With autumn just around the corner, we’re reminded of Pete and Stephanie’s beautiful wedding reception at The Oakside Mansion in Bloomfield, New Jersey.
The Oakside Mansion is a charming, private estate surrounded by 4-acres of serene gardens. Equipped with lovely details including majestic chandeliers and a staircase that makes for the perfect backdrop to any wedding photo, a fall wedding here is truly a dream come true.
As always, our mission was to create excitement. And this wedding was no different. We started the evening by introducing the wedding party to the One More Time by Daft Punk. In my opinion, this is a great song to start any party!
Then, Pete and Stephanie made their grand entrance as husband and wife to the smooth sound of Electric Feel by MGMT. Immediately after, we got all 150 guests on the dance floor, with an ice breaker song, The Twist by Chubby Checker.
As the guests made their way back to their seats, we slowed the pace down just a bit. Pete and Stephanie’s first dance was accompanied by the sultry sounds of Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton. This song is definitely one of our favorite choices for a first dance.
The evening continued with It’s a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong as Stephanie danced with her father, and Pete danced with his mother. Unforgettable by Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole followed as the bride danced with the groom’s mother, and the groom danced with the bride’s mother. These shared dances are so lovely to see. It’s every parent’s dream come true to experience a moment like this.
Congrats again to Pete and Stephanie, it was an honor to entertain at your wedding.
