Dani and Black Cape Cod Wedding

Cape Cod Reception with Wedding DJ Jacky B Barros

Here are some scenes from the fairy tale wedding of ;

Danielle (Dani) Hill and Robert (Black) Mattie.

June 1, 2019

IT ALL BEGAN…

The search for our life partner is never easy.

It started online. They connected online and knew they should meet

When asked individually, both knew on the very first date that at last they had found the one!

The one they wanted to spend to the rest of their life with.

PLANNING TIME

I was referred to Dani by David John Correia photographer extraordinaire, a longtime friend and colleague. He is an artist with a camera and has a personality that your guests will love. The really great images following are his, the others are mine.

The first time Dani and I talked about what she wanted for her day, we clicked on music. When I mentioned Too Close and Wifey by Next, she knew that I understood what kind of wedding reception she wanted. An upbeat, fun wedding with a lots of 90’s R & B and Hip Hop.

The pre bridal consultation is when I meet with the bride, groom and other wedding planners to discuss the itinerary for the wedding day.

We met at the wedding site the Crosby Mansion in Brewster, MA. This is a hidden jewel for a wedding venue! And it gets better every year thanks to the Friends of the Crosby Mansion ongoing renovation. Caretaker Brian Locke and other volunteers have restored much of this fabulous manse.

Crosby Mansion Brewster, MA

Shh don’t tell anyone and it is hard to imagine that when they booked the Crosby Mansion for their wedding, they had almost the whole mansion and property to themselves for the entire weekend! Friday – Sunday!

Special deal maybe IDK if you’re interested in the place tell Brian that you want the ‘Dani’ deal and see if its available for your day!

THE DAY

The day started for me, wedding DJ Jacky B Barros, and my lady at the Captain Freeman Bed and Breakfast with the emphasis on Breakfast! Feast your eyes on this 5-course masterpiece. Including Crème Brule French Toast with scrambled eggs and a Vermont maple sausage and homemade sorbet as an entremet and more. What a great way to start the day. Thanks Donna, Byron and Harrison too!

THE CEREMONY

The ceremony started with traditional classical music. In fitting with the formal surroundings. The bridal party entered to the R& B version of Jagged Edge Let’s Get married. Dani then had me drop the beat! She entered with the remix version for her entrance which had everyone up and dancing! Exactly what she wanted!

Wedding Introductions

The first dance was a fantastic rendition of Thinking Out Loud from Ed Sheeran sung by Courtney Andrade. Great job Courtney!

First Dance

The amazing smell of barbeque ribs filled the room and teased our palettes. We couldn’t wait to dig into ribs, mac and cheese, greens and more from Bob Oldsman and the crew of Whites Catering.

Dani sent me a great list of artists to choose from and to mix with guest’s requests. I personally go to as many tables as I can to meet the guests and to get requests. Dani’s guests added some great songs to our list.

Full Dance Floor on A Bright Saturday Afternoon

Everything from the old favorites like, We Are Family to Drakes Nonstop with a whole lot of Next, Mary j, Whitney and Michael Jackson and current pop hits like Shape of You, Despacito, and Before I Let Go by Beyonce

What a great dance party! Everyone was dancing for the last dance All of Me by John Legend.

Thank you Danielle (Dani) Hill Mattie and Robert (Black) Mattie for allowing me to be a part of your day. I enjoyed you, your music and your guests!

Warmest Regards

DJ Jacky B!

7 Reggae Seating of the Mothers Songs That Moms Will Love

Reggae music during the seating of mothers and processional is quite uplifting. This should help your wedding DJ get everyone in a more playful and fun mood with a playlist consisting of reggae favorites.

If you don’t know what music to play, check out our suggestions below:

No Woman, No Cry by Bob Marley

The song is a powerful message to women as a reminder that no matter what happens in life, things will get better. It’s also the perfect track for moms and brides to welcome a new life after her daughter gets married. 

She’s Royal by Tarrus Riley

Tarrus Riley’s song honors both mothers and brides on the special day. There’s one line that defines the women in your life: “She’s not afraid and ashamed of who she is.” It’s one quality to admire in a woman.

The Song My Mother Used To Sing by Dennis Brown

The song talks about the hustle mothers have to face every day and where children have to help them get by. You can play this song to show your mother gratitude for taking care of you.

Strength of a Woman by Shaggy

As the title says it all, this upbeat song is about respect and reverence of a woman’s grit. Shaggy’s fun tune brings resolve to deliver the line “So don’t you underestimate the strength of a woman.

Thank You, Mama, by Sizzla

If you want to have a special song for your mother, this is the best track your wedding DJ can play. If you want to honor the top woman in your life, a little, “Thank you, mama, for the nine months you carried me through,” is perfect.

La-La (Means I Love You) by Alton Ellis

This classic reggae song is ideal for a unique dance processional. You can groove and sing along the easy tune. It also works well when you play it during the cocktail hour and dance sets.

Roots Woman by Jimmy Cliff

Songs by Jimmy Cliff always make people groove to the beat. Roots Woman reminds you that all brides in different shapes and sizes are worth the all love in the world.

Choosing songs for mothers during seating can be tricky. You need to honor the woman who brought you into this world in a way that conveys your emotions, without bringing the mood down with music that’s too emotional.

People requesting a wedding DJ to play reggae music always get a nod of approval from the guests. You can choose classic reggae hits or contemporary jams to get your audience dancing.

7 R&B Prelude Music To Kick Off Your Ceremony

Wedding prelude songs are music to welcome your guests as they arrive to the ceremony. You can set the right mood by hiring a wedding DJ to greet family and friends with the appropriate songs for the occasion.

Playing rhythm and blues (R&B) at a nuptial sets a soulful mood. The genre is ideal for wedding preludes as it combines poignant tones from gospel, jazz, and blues.

Do you need suggestions? These selection should give you enough ideas to create your own playlist.

Stay With You by John Legend

You can trust John Legend to deliver the ideal wedding anthem. This song reflects on couples being together and staying through difficulties. “There will be heartaches and pains,” Legend sings. “But through it all, we will remain.”

This Is Love by Kelly Rowland

This sweet song describes what it’s like to be in love in a very poetic way. When Kelly Rowland sang out, “Can you describe the moment when two people fall in love?” It will help convey to your guests what you feel towards your significant other.

Marry Me by Jason Derulo

Weddings aren’t all tears and “I’ll Miss Yous.” This fun, upbeat song by Jason Derulo reminds everyone to celebrate a new, happy life for the couple. “Wake up every morning with you in my bed… That’s precisely what I plan to do.”

Angel of Mine by Monica

When I first saw you, I already knew.” How do you know he’s the one? Let this song do the talking for you. If this song reached Number 1 in the US Billboard Hot 100, it will also touch the hearts of your guests.

By Your Side by Sade

Rest Of My Life by Bruno Mars

As I stand here before my woman.” Bruno Mars shows what loving forever is like between married couples. The song is a reminder and a promise to love someone for the rest of their lives.

All My Life by K-Ci & JoJo

This is one of the best romantic hits from the 90s you can request from your wedding DJ. Playing this song on the background lets you belt out on thanking God to have found the one you love.

Nowadays, prelude music doesn’t have to be overly romantic or old fashioned sentimental love songs. Couples can put their spin on it, makings sure it reflect their personality and story. R&B tunes can help them achieve just that.

This country classic will certainly touch everyone’s hearts, ensuring that they feel the love between you and your spouse. Garth Brooks’ version makes use of piano music to add an even more romantic flair to the music. It’s a lovely song that declares your start to forever with, “I could hold you for a million years to make you feel my love.

From this Moment On by Shania Twain

Another wedding classic, your guests will get to feel the moment as you walk down the aisle. The opening lyrics, “From this moment life has begun,” tells everyone that you’re ready to start a new future—and to make it a good one as well.

I Swear by John Michael Montgomery

Whether you’re listening to John Michael Montgomery’s version or All 4 One’s, no one can deny that this song is solemn and pure. When the singer croons, “I’ll be there for better or worse, ‘til death do us part,” it sounds like a vow already.

7 Best Classical Brides Entrance Songs

7 Best Classical Brides Entrance Songs 

Are you planning on having your wedding in a church? If this is so, you’ll have certain limitations on what you can play for your wedding. Ask your wedding DJ to play it safe, without going too plain with some good ole’ classical pieces.

Classical music provides failsafe options for a traditional wedding. But it doesn’t have to be boring. If you don’t know how to choose, let this list of classical wedding processional songs inspire you.

Bridal Chorus by Wagner

The classic, “Here Comes the Bride” march, gives you that regal feeling of when God unites your union. It might be a popular piece of music, but given that there are a variety of versions available, you can choose one that suits your preferences the best.

Canon in D by Pachelbel

Canon is the most popular bridal entrance in weddings! This soft tune is a favorite classical melody is almost a must for ceremonies. Most couples change this piece to different versions to make it more refreshing. For instance, the rock guitar Canon in D is a crowd pleaser just as much as the original.

Midsummer Night’s Dream, Op. 61: IX. Wedding March by Mendelssohn

The trumpet sounds and blasts from violins in the intro will certainly add a grand statement to your entrance. Mendelssohn has created a rather heavenly piece of music that will surely place all the focus on the bride and the ceremony itself.

Ave Maria by Bach

Bach’s rendition of Ave Maria has a soft and pure tune perfect for bridal marches. If you can find an opera or wedding singer who can sing it for you, you’ll understand why it’s a top pick for an entrance.

The Marriage of Figaro, K. 492: Act I. Overture

If you want a more uplifting tune for your entrance, this piece would be ideal for a joyous celebration. It can set the right mood for everyone waiting for your arrival.

Clair de Lune by Claude Debussy

If you want something more subtle, but no less dreamy, then this is the song for you. It gives a light, almost floaty feeling to the ceremony. Adding a romantic touch to everything. Also, you can hear this classical track on slow dances between children and their parents.

Music for the Royal Fireworks by Handel

If you want a regal and grand entrance, Handel’s Royal Fireworks is a good choice to celebrate such a happy occasion. Or, you can use this piece for your recessional as well.

Do you want to stay conventional yet memorable with your choice of music? This classical playlist is what you can suggest to your wedding DJ.
