Chris & Christina's Rockin' Wedding Reception at The Palace at Somerset Park | Elite Entertainment

By Mike Walter, Elite Entertainment

I met with Chris and Christina about a year before their wedding.  They were interviewing DJs in search of someone who would work with them and their musical tastes.  They had very strong feelings about the music at their reception and wanted to make sure their DJ and MC understood them and was willing to incorporate them into the programming.  We clicked when we met and I assured them that I don’t consider a wedding successful unless I’ve played all the bride and groom’s requests.  A packed dance floor is only part of my job – I always make sure the music is representative of the couple and their tastes.

Chris and Christina are rockers – hard rockers – and they incorporated this not just in the music at their reception but so much else as well.  Instead of a flower girl, for example, they had a Rhinestone Girl named Willow who sprinkled the runner with rhinestones before Christina came down the aisle at the ceremony.  And when Christina did make her appearance it was clear that her fashion sense is all rocker as well. Her wedding dress was silver and it was bedazzled with bling and her bouquet was more rhinestones than flowers.  Chris was sporting a less-than traditional tuxedo as well (a very rockabilly look).

Musically Chris and Christina’s tastes ran the gamut.  They had some dance songs (Shut Up and Dance and Baby Got Back) some hard rock (Green Day and Foo Fighters) and some unique selections like “A Girl Like You” by Edwyn Collins (which I’d never heard before but it’s a cool, David Bowie-esque track).  One of their requests was “Kiss” which was perfect becausePrince had passed away the day before their wedding so I opened up the dancing with this and it went over great.
