Delaware Museum of Natural History Wedding

 Saturday, October 24, 2020 at the Delaware Museum of Natural History

Here’s what the bride had to say:

The best DJ to work with. We’re both engineers by trade so the use of a shared spreadsheet that included questions to think about, potential music choices for various occasions during the wedding, and ceremony examples helped us tremendously! Adam was wonderful to work with, always got back to us quickly and even made a three song epic mix for our first dance!!! He also made it easy to surprise my groom on wedding day with a wedding party dance! Honestly, for any other party, we would definitely go with him again!!! The amount of quirky professionalism was perfect! Thank you for making our wedding incredible!

Bride's review Delaware Museum of Natural History Wedding

Ceremony and First Dance Highlights

The wedding ceremony took place in the dinosaur hall. Huge fossils framed the ceremony and a close friend of the bride and groom officiated. Attendance was limited to 25 guests – all of whom got COVID tests before the wedding. We set up a live YouTube stream so friends and family could watch the ceremony as it happened. The ceremony was very touching and personal – the bride and groom wrote their own vows and everything. But what really blew my mind were the birds! A bird flew in the ring to the groom, and the ceremony concluded with birds flying into the bride and grooms hands and then dispersing.

The Full Wedding Ceremony

First Dance

The bride and groom prepared a special three part first dance. It was mix of Buddy Guy – What Kind of Woman is This, Caravan Palace – Lone Digger and Ludacris – My Chick Bad.

Note: All the super-fine pictures in this post were graciously provided by Joe del Tufo of Moonloop Photography. He really captured the magic!

Surprise Dance for the Groom

This was a secret. The bride planned the whole thing without the groom ever catching on. It was a huge surprise and totally dazzling!

Microphone Safety During The Pandemic

Sharing microphones spreads germs. So, we started using two layers of microphone covers, with the top layer being color-coded foam. Each person was assigned their own color so there would be no sharing. The covers are only used once and then tossed. Notice the rainbow of colored mics below:

Cake Cutting

The cake was cut using samurai swords with the opening to Samurai Jack as the soundtrack. They even prepared a cutout of Aku the evil demon from the show.

The Dancing

The dancing was so ecstatic, that people either stayed low to the ground or were floating on air.

Shoe Game

The shoe game is where the bride and groom give eachother a shoe and sit back to back on the center of the dance floor. Then the MC asks questions, like, “Who made the first move?” The bride and groom raise the shoe to show which person it is. Most of the time they agreed. Sometimes they didn’t. The guests had a copies of the questions at their tables. The grand prize winner was the one who answered the most correctly. You can check out their questions below.

The T-Rex

There was a totally terrifying T-Rex skull in the main reception room. After talking it over with the photographer, Joe del Tufo of Moonloop Photography, we decided to uplight the skull. Joe made the most of it. I mean, look at them choppers!
