Filipino weddings are an impressive fusion of modern and historic customs. Traditionally, these cultural weddings are a celebration of two families coming together rather than just two individuals. I found this to be true with Sam and Cheryl's wedding. They had all the right people in place and entrusted them to do a great job with their wedding. Everyone was so thorough, detail oriented, and unified in everything they did! They had amazing communication even though they both were so busy and lived in another state than where they were getting married.

My favorite part of their wedding was the money dance! This tradition is a fun one that many cultures choose to include during their reception. I asked the men and women to line up in separate lines, grab a pin and wait their turn to dance with the bride and/or groom. The money received during the dances is perceived as a sign of good fortune, while also financial assistance as they begin their journey as husband and wife. I think every bride and groom should do this!

"From the very first phone call to the actual wedding day, Westley was an absolute professional and complete pleasure to work with. Organized, accommodating, and personable, we knew he was the right choice. Not only an incredible person, but Westley leverages an online portal that provides his clients with an intuitive and user friendly experience to plan their wedding. His repertoire of songs - both with lyrics and instrumentals - were filled with hit after hit during both the reception and the ceremony. Westley was happy to meet at the venue location prior to the wedding day and was able to quickly determine the best location to set up his equipment. His assistants were a pleasure to work with, and they were able to quickly and efficiently set up the up lighting, DJ booth, speakers, and conduct the necessary audio/sound checks. The best part of the setup process was how relaxed and down to earth they all were. They knew what needed to be done, how long it would all take, and were having a blast getting everything in order. Our favorite part of working with Westley and his crew was how personable they were - both with us - his clients - and our guests. I can’t stress this point enough. We had numerous guests approach us during the reception with countless praises of how incredible our DJ was. It seems none of our guests have attended a wedding where the DJ was so interactive with the crowd - from hyping up the crowd during the grand entrance, commanding the attention of the guests during the formal wedding events, and engaging/participating with the CONSTANTLY packed dance floor. If you are ever hosting an event that requires a DJ, and are looking for someone that makes you feel at ease throughout the entire process, DJ West and his crew is the perfect match."

Congratulations Sam and Cheryl!! Thank you for choosing me to be apart of your special day!! #SockWedding2017
