Michelle and Glenn had perfect weather Friday night for their wedding at the Hyatt Regency Jersey City. The wedding Ceremony was held outside overlooking the New York City Skyline. Expressway Music DJ Dave Swirsky DJ’d the Ceremony through out the reception. Here is DJ Dave pre ceremony outside.
After the ceremony guests stayed outside for cocktail hour with music provided by Expressway Music. After Cocktail hour guests came upstairs for the reception.
There were some touching, heartfelt toasts after the first dance followed by the bride dancing to “In My Life” by the Beatles with her mother and the Groom dancing to “places in my past” by James Taylor with his mother. Then all the guests joined them and the dancing didn’t stop until the reception was over!
The last song of the wedding was “Island in the Sun” by Weezer signifying their up and coming honeymoon to the Caribbean!
The following is a review the bride put up on Citysearch!
I was obsessed with planning my wedding. I was so nervous about the DJ after being to so many typical weddings. I wanted someone who could figure out what the crowd wanted while playing music from the 80’s and 90’s that I love. After googling “awesome 80’s dj” and having David and expressway pop up I gave them a call. After one conversation, which was mainly about the movie the wedding singer, I knew I had to book this company. I used them for my ceremony, cocktail hour, and four hour reception. They basically had to be there all day, and their prices were very reasonable for all of their work.
As a bride, you have to be extremely organized. Expressway music immediately sent me an online form to fill out online. This form was heaven for me! We got to pick all the songs for the ceremony, all the entrance songs, first dances, everything….and that form made it super easy as you could click on a button and hear any song you typed in. It just made me know that every detail would be taken care of and I didn’t have to worry. Did I mention, his database has every song you could think of!!! Also, we got to pick our do not play and must play songs.
So after emailing all the info and songs we already picked out, we met with David to go over every detail. When we walked into his office we were greeted by these great vinyl records of Madonna and Bowie hung on the wall and I knew we had made the right choice. Everyone in Expressway was great and easy to talk to. The meeting was fun and professional, and I wished we could have talked about music and concerts forever.
So finally the big day came. I had no worries as David and his assistant came early to set up the three different places they would have to be. It helped that David had worked a few weddings there in the past. The ceremony went exactly as planned. Cocktail hour music was great! Then came the party….
Everyone was up dancing. David played a great mix of everything. People were talking about how great my DJ was for months after. My guests wanted the exact playlist of the night cause it was so fun, but we just let David work his magic. David and his company are super nice, fun and just a pleasure to work with.
I think everyone should hire David and Expressway if they want a great DJ with music for everyone and to just have piece of mind that the wedding will go smoothly!
