Saturday March 21st 2015 Japanese Friendship Garden


Tonight Julie and I were at the Japanese Friendship Garden to celebrate Marla & Adrien’s big day.

I love the venue and especially where they do the Cocktail Hour by the Koi Pond before heading over to the main reception area.


We had a diverse crowd tonight as Marla is Filipino and Adrien is Persian so the dance music was interesting !!

After the grand entrance we did a traditional Persian ceremony called the Sofreh


Then in lieu of my normal ‘Shout’ before dinner to get the guests up we played a Persian dance song, I love ‘cultural’ weddings like this and I find that a lot of the guests enjoy the music as well, as they have never heard it before.

Concepts Event Design did all the decor and it looked amazing (as always !!)


It was also great working with  Jennifer Dery and Jeff Roldan for photography and video respectively, it has been a long time !! hopefully we will work together again soon !!

I loved Marla’s dad’s speech where he sang to her, and took 3 attempts before he finished it, starting from the beginning each time, that is perseverence !! They also did a great father daughter dance to a Cha Cha.


A really fun night tonight !!
