We're beyond happy and impressed with how Above the Clouds DJ'd and emceed our wedding day at Edgewood Yacht Club. They first went above and beyond to set up for the ceremony, which had a few small constraints given the building's logistics. Paul made the audio and speakers work exceedingly well for our unforgettable nuptials!
Once the cocktail hour began, Paul was off and running. Friends and family members from the bride and groom's side got things kicked off when Paul let them perform karaoke. It wasn't even part of our plan, but it was definitely appreciated!
Paul is not only a consummate professional but also a long time friend and the setting, the venue and many of the people attending our wedding from the groom's side all knew Paul well, so this was a bit of a homecoming. He's well known in the New England music scene, so it was a pleasure and greatly appreciated he was able to take part in our special day. He helped realize our wedding vision in a big way.
We gave Paul an outline and he handled it very well the rest of the way. For toasts and our first dance, Paul made the reception and everything flow naturally and comfortably with his soothing, reassuring host voice. We also provided a playlist, and he took it to another level as members from both sides of the wedding party were dancing non-stop to his strong selections between Top 40, old school hip-hop and R&B and current music, which we greatly appreciated. Everyone got involved, and we mean everyone, from the younger teens to the older adults. If Edgewood Yacht Club did not have a 10pm noise curfew we would have gone another hour dancing without thinking or skipping a beat. That's how lively it was! When we needed to turn down the volume and transition, Paul was more than capable of directing people to the after party location and setting the mood again to send everyone home and cap off the night.
For days and weeks after the wedding, family members and friends continued to reflect on how nice our wedding was, and especially give credit to Paul and his music selection. We had more dancing, exictement and commingling between our families than we possibly expected during our planning and, again, that's all thanks to Paul's guidance and song selection. The memories from our night are everlasting.
Paul's work is heartfelt, and he brings a loving energy to a perfect wedding. Thank you Above the Clouds!
