We had a great time working for Milon and An with Scottsdale Wedding Photography and DJ services at their wedding in Arizona. They were a beautiful couple, so naturally at ease with each other and so fun that they were literally dancing on clouds.
Earlier their Mandap had awaited at the Ceremony site. They had a fascinating blend of Indian and Vietnamese culture, and were given the difficult challenge of having both families comfortable at their wedding. They embraced the better parts of each other and their natural union made all attendees happy, joyful for the abounding love and proud to be there for the Amins.
The Groom arrived by Gondola! He had been circling the waters and was waiting nearby for this moment to arrive.
He set ashore to a new adventure, looking sharp attired in Sherwani and accompanied by his parents.
An made a stunning entrance, and such a beautiful Bride.
Together they were magnificent.
Rings were exchanged,
and Milon and An were married.
They took it all in for a moment.
Then they shared a magical First Dance on Clouds, where they discovered a special place they share where the air is thin.
Having thoroughly enjoyed our engagement session with Brad and Kim and their family, we were really looking forward to spending the big day with them when it was time for their wedding. They opted for Mesa Arizona Wedding Photography and DJ services from 3 Oceans Entertainment, so Robbie and I especially enjoyed being able to work together.
Of course we had to include a shot of their wedding rings, and we thought they looked so good in one of Kim’s red roses.
The Bridal Processional is always a fun moment, when the Bride and her escort (in this case her Father) make their entrance to the wedding.
Kim was so happy she was beaming.
The family participated in a Unity Sand ceremony, which represented the blending of their lives.
And made it official by signing the marriage license with Officiant Montana Meadows.
That left them feeling very happy and very married.
A favorite pose from their engagement session found its way to the wedding day.
With the #1 best-selling bridal magazine on the Apple Newsstand, Wedding Elite Magazine recently conducted a number of internet based polls to determine the best wedding vendors in Arizona, as well as other states across the nation. 3 Oceans Entertainment was honored to be rated as one of the 2012 Top 5 Best Arizona Wedding DJs with a 3rd place finish. Congratulations to Starz Entertainment and Desert House Productions with the top two spots respectively. In fairness, one company advertises 10 DJs on staff and the other 2. We have 1, so I’m happy to take the bronze award while being outnumbered.
This particular award was based solely on number of votes. In other words, a company with multiple DJs on staff is more likely to get a higher number of votes. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, just the way some DJ companies choose to do business. It’s called a multiple operator model, or “multi-op,” as opposed to a “single-op” format. I’ve chosen to go with the single-op for two reasons; one is my wife does not want to be a DJ, and the other is I believe in dependability and accountability. With DJ service from 3 Oceans Entertainment, your DJ is Cameron Carpenter. That’s me. You get to deal directly with the person doing your event, so I learn as much as I can about your musical tastes, desires and vision for your event, and try my best to make it happen. I strongly believe that your event is about you, and frankly there are far too few DJs who believe the same way. The truth is the vast majority of wedding DJs that I’ve seen try to make it about them, thinking they should demand attention by acting stupid – yelling into the microphone non-stop in a fake voice, hosting ridiculous games and crazy contests that embarrass you and your guests, and worse. I just don’t see the point with all this ridiculous nonsense, and that’s why I’m clear about leaving the attitude and ego behind. A special event such as a wedding should be elegant and fun, and I have no desire to be some sort of party clown.
(You may have noticed that we do offer multiple services and wondered how that works. My wife and I have a system that allows us to provide two of our three services at one event, and use an assistant for the third one if needed. I network with other professionals who have a similar price and style to allow this, and also for coverage in the extreme case of illness. Please call me for details if you’re wondering about specifics.)
