Couple Brett and Maggie were all smiles at their Chesapeake Bay Beach Club wedding in September, and so were we. This classy venue on Maryland’s Kent Island has several chic ballrooms with views of the bay, plus beautiful classic East Coast architecture all through the grounds. It’s one of our favorite waterfront venues.
Brett and Maggie’s wedding day on September 12th was picture-perfect — clear skies, a light breeze, and temperatures in the mid-70s. It doesn’t get any better!
Photographer Dani Leigh was on the scene, to capture the wedding day from start to finish. We love working with Dani! She’s gifted at making everyone look their best all day long.
The ceremony was held on the enclosed rooftop deck above the Sunset Ballroom. Painted in seaside-appropriate navy and beige, the room’s huge windows bring the views of the bay right into the site. The ceremony music was performed live by a string trio.
After the ceremony, the party moved out to the covered tent on the lawn for cocktail hour, where they could enjoy the early evening weather. Then they headed back inside for dinner in the Sunset Ballroom with expansive views of the bay. The bride and groom requested Rat Pack-style tunes for ambiance, which is always a classy choice.
The party got started back outside in the tent, in the cool evening air. This is where we did the “formal introductions” of the bridal party to Forever by Chris Brown. Then the newly minted bride and groom were introduced to Jason Derulo’s Want to Want Me, which was a fun and unique choice!
Brett and Maggie’s first dance was to Die a Happy Man by Thomas Rhett. Then Maggie and her father danced to You’ve Got a Friend in Me by Randy Newman, which must have made every 90s kid crazy nostalgic. Finally, Brett and his mom took to the dance floor, to Louis Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World.
Then the guests were free to dance the night away! We also brought our touchless photo booth — always a big hit, and COVID-safe!
After the party was over, we all wished Brett and Maggie well. Their last song was Good Riddance (Time of Your Life), by Green Day, and then we all said goodbye (but not good riddance.)
Making our couples happy is the only thing we really care about here at Maryland’s DJ. That’s why we were so pleased to read some kind words from Brett after the wedding, letting us know we’d hit the mark.
“Having Jordan as our wedding DJ was an absolute delight. The first time we ever spoke to Jordan, it was for close to an hour as he laid out his experience as a DJ, particularly with weddings, and answered all of our questions…
“At the wedding itself, Jordan was terrific. He arrived early. He coordinated with our other vendors and the staff at the venue to set up his equipment so that we weren't disturbed. He made introductions, provided announcements, and, of course, kept the dance floor grooving for the entire night.
“[Jordan] made our lives a little less hectic while planning a wedding in the midst of the ongoing pandemic: no small feat. Maryland's DJ has a strong recommendation from us, and a tremendous thank you, Jordan, for all your hard work!”
Joy has been a bit hard to come by this year, but celebrating with this crew was a truly joyful experience.
If we can help make your life a “little less hectic while planning a wedding in the midst of an ongoing pandemic…” we’d love to hear from you. Contact us to reserve your date!
