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.

August 2017: Not Your Typical Wedding DJ!

 

Hype Rhythm Live at Ma Maison! Thanks Melissa Glynn Photography!

Austin’s best DJ/Drummer duo brought the house down at Ma Maison for John and Haley’s Wedding. The dance floor was packed from start to finish   and luckily we had a videographer, Airebourne Entertainment, to capture a few moments from the night. Check out the video below!

 


Back a few months (5/27/17) ago I did a wedding out at The Addison Grove for Kelsey and Donnie. The amazing folks at Agave Creative put together this awesome video which perfectly captured the feels and fun of the day. This was one of my personal favorite weddings I’ve done and am so glad there is video to look back on!


8/19/17 – Wedding

Hands down I have to say that as a DJ, Brazos Hall is my favorite venue in Austin!! With the ability for the DJ to directly plug into their 100+ overhead speaker system (w/ direct control over upstairs and downstairs, wow!) plus my own speaker system, it was the most pleasant listening experience you can get at a venue. Love working here and thank you to Tayler and Alex for having me as their DJ! This was non stop party and I was so glad to be a big part of that! Congrats!


8/16/17 – A Taste of NACE

NACE, or The National Association for Catering and Events, is one of the top event professional organizations in Austin, and also an early supporter of Hype Rhythm when we first started out. They invited Hype Rhythm to DJ and a few of Austin’s best caterers to showcase some of their best hors d’oeuvres at Trinity Hall. Needless to say I can attest, it was some of Austin’s best hands down!

This event was a fundraiser for AWADE, which to learn more about, just check out this amazing recap video that Bonnie Newman Creative did! Special appearances by Hype Rhythm providing tunes during the tasting!


8/11/17 – Wedding

Bobby and Alisha had a beautiful wedding at Villa St. Clair. Bobby is from Houston, so of course we had to throw in some H-Town rap classics in the mix. Gotta say though my favorite part was them being announced into the reception with “Congratulations by Post Malone”. Congrats and thanks for trusting in Hype Rhythm!

May 2017

5/28/17 – Wedding

Thank you so much to my fellow UT grads, Ashley and Scott, for trusting me to help them with their wedding at Ma Maison! When we were in college Ashley would hire me to DJ her organization’s parties, so from the boat parties, to formals, and now your wedding, I’m so thankful for your friendship and support! Everything was absolutely perfect, as always, from start to finish and I couldn’t be more happy for y’all as the new Mr. and Mrs. Rasmussen! My Snapchat story below.


5/27/17 – Wedding

Had a great time at Donnie and Kelsey’s wedding at The Addison Grove. Rebecca and Kim with Eclipse Events did an amazing job helping fight through the rain and humidity to pull of a perfect wedding! Of course, yours truly came through with the on point music to make an unforgettable night for everyone. My Snapchat story below.


5/20/17 – 50th Birthday Party

Jennifer was looking for unique and unusual entertainment for her husband’s 50th birthday, Hype Rhythm was just what she was looking for. We all had a great time and guests could not get enough of our contagious dance energy and great song selections! Pictured above is the look of our set up that is now included in every package. Four up-lights, two stage (party) lights on stands, Bose dual tower system, wireless mic, and of course with a real drum kit and real turntables.


5/19/17 – Wedding

Thank you to Debora and John for trusting me to help make your day unforgettable at the beautiful, new Dripping Springs venue, Canyonwood Ridge. Highly recommended for its beautiful chapel seen above!

The real story here was at the very end of the night when guests were asked to line up for the sparkler exit. Long story short, the limo driver got lost on the way to the venue and ended up bottoming out in a ditch. Still wanting to make their day perfect, I stepped up to the plate and offered my Jeep to be the getaway vehicle for their sparkler exit. Funniest thing I’ve ever done as a DJ while doing this for the past 8 years. I can now say my services include DJ, MC, Officiant, and Limo Driver! I do it all to make your day perfect!


5/13/17 – Wedding

Kim and Rob got married at Blue Rock Estate , recently opened by Disch Events, an absolutely beautiful venue! This was one of the first weddings where I was asked to play throwback hits from the early 2010’s, which makes me feel old just typing that. Haha! Congratulations to Kim and Rob and thanks for having me be there to make everything go perfect!


5/6/17 – Wedding

When you have a large, beautiful backyard, having a wedding at your house isn’t a bad idea. Thank you so much to my long time friends, Sara and John for having me to their house in San Antonio to DJ their dinner and reception.


5/5/17 – Wedding

Hype Rhythm Live did our second official wedding at Barr Mansion! We were so excited to be the preforming for this wedding, and honestly, it exceeded our expectations for how much fun it was gonna be. Luckily, we had Airebourne Entertainment there to video capture all the dance floor action! Official professional video coming ASAP! Thank you for trusting us for taking your wedding to the next level, and congratulations to my A&M friends, John and Hailey!
