This past Friday and Saturday we were back in the West Valley for a wedding and school dance. Two of our most popular February 2020 bookings. See how we’ve prepared for the weather and handled new kinds of events this year.
1) Family Dance – Copper Trails, Goodyear AZ
Friday, I had the pleasure of returning to Copper Trails, in Goodyear Arizona! This school is so much fun to visit because of the rich history that we have with the school. Originally, Elijah West (our co-founder) went to grade school here. I’ve also grown up in close proximity and most of my friends have gone there. On top of that, my childhood friend’s dad works there! What a small world.
(I will be sharing a fun timelapse video of the set up soon :))
2) Wedding Reception + Ceremony – Buckeye, AZ
Then, on Saturday, it poured. All-day we had showers and it was hard to escape the perils that were raining down. I was afraid that the wedding would be canceled when I woke up that morning. Thankfully, things all worked out. The wedding was held at the Rustique Acres in Buckeye, Arizona. A quaint and rustic (hence the name) farm that is converted to a wedding venue in the alfalfa off-season.
I shared the above image for others that were also experiencing the turmoils of the rain! Several of my friends in the DJ business messaged me to let me know they were also dealing with the rain. Thankfully, we all had backup tarps, canopies, and towels at our disposal
As I mentioned, the rain thankfully had no impact on the day. Other than the puddles that were scattered about for the ceremony, the wedding was perfect. Dallas Rogers, a wonderful photographer based in AZ, even captured a few photos of me from that day. I’m blessed to have her and even be able to see memories of the day.
P.S see if you can spot how the rain impacted the wedding party coming down the aisle.
Overall, this weekend was a success. Though there weren’t packed dancefloors at either event, everyone still all had a great time. Copper Trail’s first Family Dance meant that we didn’t know how many people would show up. For the families that did, there were quality memories to be made. Mothers and fathers shared many precious memories together. Even at the wedding, where most of the younger crowd were the only ones who wanted to dance – they still had fun.
In the end, I’d say that this weekend was a success and a good learning experience as well. We even collected a few reviews from an event that DJ Caleb Fine received at another even in the East Valley at Edwardo’s Reception Hall in Mesa.
