October 2017 Events Recap

Canyonwood Ridge Wedding – 10/29/17

October is always the busiest month of the year for weddings, and this year was no different! Finished out the final and 7th wedding of October with Raquel and Dan at one of my personal favorite venues in Dripping Springs, Canyonwood Ridge because of their beautiful inside ceremony space pictured above. To summarize the feels of the evening, in the words of Dan, “That dance party was all because of you, wouldn’t have happened without you”. Glad I could bring the dancing fire to a Sunday wedding!


The Allan House Wedding – 10/28/17

I will never forget this specific wedding- it was literally a life changing ceremony. When I initially met with Courtney and Matt, they explained that they were gonna officiate their own wedding (i.e. just exchange vows and rings), as they had already been legally married. I had never even heard of this before in 8 years of DJing weddings, so I was honestly a little skeptical of how it was all gonna play out because the bride and groom are usually nervous the day of, but I love untraditional stuff, so I was happy to oblige. Admittedly a strange sight, Matt walked up to the front – no officiant or wedding party in tow- and thanked the guests for coming, and then motioned to me to being playing Courtney’s processional song.

If you haven’t ever been to a wedding, the officiant usually talks about the couple’s relation, quotes some passages on love, helps the couple recite their vows to one another, helps them exchange ring vows, and then legally pronounces them newly weds. When meeting with them before beginning, they were both visibly nervous and stiff, but as soon as they started talking to each other they completely opened up. Courtney and Matt’s ceremony blew my mind because it was like them speaking from the heart to one another about their history together, why they fell in love, and are still falling in love each day with each other so much that they wanna spend the rest of their lives together. The eloquence and confidence with which both of them spoke and the way you could feel their emotions for one another.  It was such a special ceremony because of its beautiful uniqueness, just like their love – something to envy. So now, thank you to  Courtney and Matt for changing my perspective on wedding ceremonies, officiants, and love. It was an honor to be your DJ!


Agudas Achim Wedding – 10/22/17

Aliza and Jennifer put a lot a trust into me to help pull off their non-traditional, yet traditional Jewish wedding off. They were understandably nervous leading into the wedding, but it was one of those weddings where the family wants to get up and start dancing before dinner is even over. Long story short, it was one of the most fun dance segments at a wedding, even got Granpa Annon guest DJing!


Brodie Homestead Wedding – 10/21/17

Another great example of why to have a professional wedding DJ! When meeting with David and Raisha, they were open to dancing to anything and everything; However, initially their guests weren’t as obliging. Noticing a fair amount of hispanics and using my San Antonio roots, I pulled out one of the best Cumbia/Salsa/Reggaton sets I’ve ever spun and knocked it out of the park for the newly weds. Thanks for trusting in my song selections and allowing me to help make the day perfect!

Stonehouse Vineyard Wedding – 10/19/17

Thursday weddings are super rare, so I was more than happy to DJ for Jeremy and Elizabeth with their small wedding of 50 people. They didn’t expect guests to dance, but still, as a DJ the goal is to pull off the unexpected small dance party. Proud to say the unexpected dance party happened! Thanks for having me and congratulations!


TerrAdorna Wedding – 10/14/17

I was so excited to be the DJ for Albert and Jennifer! As a South Texas DJ, its awesome when you can play the all of the “super 3 wedding dance genre’s”(Classic and new wedding Hits, Country music, and Hispanic music). Favorite part of the day was the special ceremony during the actual ceremony where Albert and Jennifer poured a shot of Tequila (while I softly played Tequila by The Champs of course) as their “unity ceremony”. Definitely gonna be recommending that one in the future!


Hog Heaven Wedding – 10/7/17

Hog Heaven is actually not a public wedding venue, but rather a client of the personal trainers and newlyweds, Gina and Bane! An absolutely gorgeous skeet shooting and sport venue in Dripping Springs, its a shame it isn’t on the market for future weddings. Nonetheless, it was an amazing time and I was blown away by how everyone in attendance made me feel like I needed to go on a diet and hit the gym. Congratulations and thank you for putting your trust in Hype Rhythm.

July 2017

7/8/17 – Wedding

Blessed to have a family who supports my passion, and especially to my cousin who had me out to DJ his Saturday brunch wedding at the South Congress Hotel. This wedding was another amazing affair put together and coordinated by Michelle with Here to Help! I love brunch weddings, and especially having our family there to dance and have a good time made it unforgettable. Congratulations Mitch and Sarah!


7/3/17 – Wedding

Had a great time DJing for these two Baylor graduates, Emily and Adam, who got married out at Texas Old Town‘s Sage Hall the day before July the 4th (smart!). Guests had such a fun time dancing that we got too lit and ended up breaking the AC. Even though hot, we played it cool and still had a great time on the dance floor. Congratulations!


7/1/17 -Wedding

Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture of this wedding, but still wanted to post a big thank you to Jeremiah and Dee for having me there to DJ/Host/Coordinate their wedding. Dee suffers from a fear of public speaking and didn’t think she was gonna be able to make it through saying her vows. When it finally got to her vows, she began to break down and it looked like they were gonna have to be skipped, but instead of crying she overcame her fear and – seriously – said some of the most beautiful, heartfelt vows I have ever heard in 250+ weddings. Was really special to witness something so passionate like that, so thank you guys for having me!

June 2017

6/17/17 – Wedding

Another amazing Hype Rhythm Live wedding took place at Ashley and Andrew’s wedding at Dimebox Ballroom. Here is her review posted of our DJ/Drummer entertainment combo on our Facebook. More pictures to be posted as soon as the photographer has them ready! Thank you for having us and glad we could rock your wedding!

Thank you so much Nick Ruiz for making our wedding so awesome!!! I can’t tell you how many of our guests raved about how great y’all were! We have some friends that are booking y’all for their wedding next year! So again, thank you SO much! Y’all were fantastic!


6/10/17 – Wedding

Congratulations to Matt and Tawny! They had a (finally!) beautiful day in June and celebrated it at Texas Old Town‘s Stone Hall. This was one of the most on-time and stress free weddings I’ve ever seen thanks to Michelle with Here To Help! The couple and I met over our love of Halal Bros, who don’t usually cater, but Tawny and Matt weren’t about to take “No” for an answer. Thank you for having me!


6/3/17 – Wedding

For the past three weekends in a row the weather in Texas has been extra Texas. We would go from no rain predicted to flash flood, back to clear skies all within an hour. No matter what, the humidity was always there to remind us that the Texas summer is just beginning!

So needless to say, from the DJs perspective at least, moving the ceremony to the air conditioned inside is cool with me! And it’s even more fortunate when the sky clears up beautifully right after your ceremony, so you are still able to take planned pictures in the Spicewood Vineyards. Congratulations to Brian and Anne, and thank you guys for trusting in me to do what I do!


6/2/17 – Hype Rhythm Live

In the mix at our newest West 6th Street spot, Steampunk Saloon. Even while both us of were sick with a cold, we still brought the Hype on a very humid Friday! We are in the mix again at Steampunk next Friday 6/16 from 11pm-2am!
