Wedding Reception DJ at Dallas Petroleum Club by Discovery DJ & Lighting

Ryan & Heather’s reception on October 8, 2011 took place at a great venue overlooking the city of Dallas–the Dallas Petroleum Club. While the room presented some challenges from a sound standpoint, it was such a cool venue and I was able to work through the challenges as far as power and sound went.

When I meet with a couple for the first time, I will usually ask if they like to dance and if they think they’ll dance at their wedding. It really does help encourage guests to dance when the bride & groom dance. Well, Ryan & Heather did a great job with that, as they were out dancing almost the whole night! Not only were Ryan & Heather out there dancing, but most of their guests were too! The crowd was a lot of fun and danced to both new & old music to help celebrate Ryan & Heather’s wedding.

I always enjoy working at new venues and with new vendors. I had never been to the Petroleum Club, so it was great to get to see it and work with the staff there (they were excellent to work with). In addition, I also worked with Christopher & Angela from Lucky Pro Photography. I truly believe having a good group of vendors who communicate well and work together can help make the wedding a success. Well, Christopher and Angela were awesome to work with! Not only that, they took some amazing pictures too! They were kind enough to share the pictures with me, so I will post them below. I hope to work with them again sometime soon!

Dallas Museum of Art Wedding DJ by Discovery DJs

I’ve provided DJ services for quite a few Dallas weddings, so I’ve seen my fair share of speeches & toasts. However, Stephen’s brother Mark gave one of the best toasts I have ever heard in the 12+ years I have been DJing weddings. It was a great blend of funny and serious, and you could tell he was speaking from the heart. I’m sure Stephen, Diana and their guests will remember that for quite a long time.

Stephen & Diana pretty much gave me free reign for what to play–the only thing they requested was some Texas Country, which was played while the guests were eating cake & socializing. Once dinner was done and everyone had a chance to socialize for a bit, I picked it up with some newer music followed by a set of 90’s music. Stephen & Diana’s crowd really got into some great 90’s hits I played, such as It’s Tricky by Run DMC and Jump On It by Sir Mix A Lot.

Being Aggies, Stephen & Diana had asked me to play the Aggie War Hymn near the end of the night. All the Aggie alumni got out on the dance floor for the fight song…as you can see from the big group picture below, there were a lot of Aggies in attendance!

Special thanks to Dallas wedding planner Kathie Seeley of Grand Events for doing a great job coordinating everything and for being so great to work with. I have had the pleasure of working with Kathie several times and I know everything will run very smoothly when Kathie has planned the wedding.

I would also like to extend a special thanks to Dallas wedding photographer Carter Rose of F8 Studio. He was also great to work with and was kind enough to provide the pictures below.
