Weddings should be all about the bride and groom and those whom they wish to honor at their reception. One of my roles as a professional DJ & Master Of Ceremonies is to help facilitate the wishes of my brides and grooms and not be the star-of-the-show.
I am so pleased to share the video below with you from a recent wedding that hi-lights this very well. Jose and Luciana chose to have a cinematic film crew cover their wedding, but that is not why I am showing it to you. My point is to show the people there having a great time, making toasts, and sharing in the creation of once-in-a-lifetime moments that occurred through the process of planning in advance and hosting as MC.
In a positive way, I wish to point out the utter lack of attention paid to me in the video! (Note: at 2:59 I am partly seen standing next to the Maid Of Honor during the Best Man’s toast.) To me that is exactly where I should be – facilitating a good time for all parties involved and helping the bride and groom shine on the most special night of their lives.
