Last 4 Weddings at the Summit House Fullerton

Summit House is undoubtedly one of my favorite locations. The place offers awesome food with hospitable services. We did about 4 weddings at that venue the last 2 years.

The last 2 being Annie & Tommy back in April and Jeni & Chris back in February respectively. For Annie & Tommy's wedding, we djed and lid up the room with good volume of lighting, please see Pix 1. (For complete story, please see
Chris Seid's blog)

For Jeni and Chris' wedding back in February, we simply djed and did not use any decor lighting, That is what Summit House look like from the outside without any decor lighting. I am sure the difference is apparent. (See Pix 2)

A Pomona Sheraton Wedding

We started off May with a couple fairly big size weddings at Pomona Sheraton and San Gabriel Hilton respectively. For the Pomona Sheraton wedding, it was our first time working there. A really beautiful ballroom with beautiful interior and beautiful looking chairs.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Ria and Anthony. Ria's bubbly personality and down to earth nature made my job so much easier. I believe her family did all the floral arrangements and it was absolute paramount that all the centerpieces were lit up. For her color selection, we used a combination of deep blue and tangerine.

I have to admit, it was a little pressure cooker given the fact that we did all the setup for about 35 tables in less than one hour or so because there was another conference preceding their wedding. I want to thank my crew for their swift and absolute dedication. We did go over by 5

Southern Comfort at the Castle Green Pasadena

Between the Chinese wedding and the Indian wedding, I squeezed in a Vietnamese wedding with a Southern Flair on the 1st day of May. We made our annual pilgrimage to the vintage Castle Green Pasadena.....Noted, we don't go there frequent, probably once annually.

Chelsea hired us after seeing me and my MC (Kim) at their friend's wedding from last year. So the whole planning process was relative simple and thru email. We actually never met till of the day of the wedding.....everything was well planned thanks to the ladies of Love, Ann & Joy. We provided them with DJ/MC services for both ceremony and reception. We lid up the room with some uplights and a custom design gobo and We also provided them with our projection package for their slide show.

For their first dance, they danced to Bryan Adam's acoustic version of Heaven. In terms of music, I did thrown in Sweet Home Alabama and Kid Rock to entertain the guests from the South and

We wish Chelsea and Derrick the best and welcome your comments and suggestions.
