At the request of the bride and groom, I can record the music during the portions of the reception. I send the mix as a CD or downloadable mp3 to the bride and groom after the big day.  Some couples share their wedding music mix as a favor with their “thank you” letters. Awesome right? Some of the music is uploaded to my website here and on Mixcloud. Please ask if you’d like to hear more wedding music mixes from your favorite wedding DJ!

You can download the mixes from my Google Drive by following this link.

PART 1 & 2 recorded reception mix of Hannah & Geoff’s wedding in San Rafael, Bay Area, California. We began with the first dance, father-daughter, mother-son, then family friendly fun, then eventually some bay area hip hop classics, all the while making sure their requests were played.

The story of how a cool couple had a dazzling destination wedding... and then a fun party...

WeddingWire Review: “Planning a Maui destination wedding from Canada was made easier by professionals like Liam. Out of our 8 core vendors, Liam definitely ranks in the top 2. From my initial email, Liam was a consistently reliable communicator via email and/ or phone- he never missed an email or a phone call. He is professional, fun, pleasant and he truly puts 110% into making your wedding special and memorable. Liam is very willing to work with you to personalize your wedding: He was instrumental in creating our personalized “brother & sister remix dance mix”.

Liam truly takes advantage of today’s modern communication platforms: His website is very informative with many options for lighting, video, projection, etc. We really liked the option of loading our favorite reception and cocktail music selections into our account- it was so easy!

As a DJ and MC, Liam was pleasant, friendly and was able to read the crowd so well- I think being able to read a crowd of guests is really essential at a wedding esp. to keep people dancing, engaged and interested without being overbearing. Liam is very personable, friendly and brings the right amount of energy to your wedding reception.

We are beyond pleased with his wedding ceremony & reception services.”

Age: 30-35
Friends and family from Wales and California. Rugby star player. Rachel is a sparkly teacher. Whole family had many music requests.
Time left us with only an hour to dance and many requests to fulfill, but the dance floor went wild for this musically passionate couple!

Mucho loco! Mucho Divertido! Lots of family culture mixing too. Bridget and Christian (the bride and groom) had many ideas for traditional dances and special moments throughout the night. For example, the first song, “Danubio Azul” is traditionally played for Spanish-Peruvian weddings. The bridal party was introduced by myself, as I played my edit of The Wanted – “Glad You Came”. We also added the tradition of “La Hora Loca” which is basically an emphasis on staged craziness throughout the first hour of dancing. The bridal party did a great job playing out their ridiculous costumes. Bridget and Christian had many requests for music – much of which I’d never heard before. However I loved mixing to such a diverse crowd… and they loved it too! Crazy energy on the dance floor all night! So much fun!

Carly and JJ’s wedding proved that even small weddings on Maui (-25 guests) should have a awesome dance party. They rocked out hard for over two hours at the Olowalu… This is the mix that got them going. Carly and JJ were great to work with and loved logging in to my online song request system to update their music list. The guests also seemed to appreciate that I passed my request list around after the dancing had started. Another great wedding!
