I was extremely flattered when John contacted me earlier this year to be the DJ at his wedding. He had seen my storefront on WeddingWire and started off his inquiry with, “I liked what I read”….
The ceremony and reception were held at Blissful Meadows Golf Club in Uxbridge, Massachusetts. There’s a great area with a gazebo and garden which overlooks the course, tailor made for an outdoor ceremony. That plan became just a little more challenging when the thermometer topped out at 96 degrees. Still, they decided not to move things indoors and I’m happy to report that there was no collateral damage — no one fainted. And, as a result, there was a solidarity among the guests who took it all in stride.
John and Tonja’s road to marriage was a long one, built on beginnings, separation, loss and renewal. I won’t go into the details here, but trust me when I say that it’s a REALLY great love story — the kind of thing that makes me believe in destiny. Borrowing from the toast from Mike, John’s brother and best man, it’s not important what roads it took to arrive; only that the roads converged at the right place and time.
