We got married on October 24, 2015 at the Hotel Eldorado in Kelowna, and what a spectacular day and evening it was.
A HUGE part of the magic of the day was the incredible support and talent we received from Jeff Hay – DJ Haymaker, not only at the wedding itself, but prior to. We hired Jeff to be our DJ, Day of Planner/go to person, and MC and it was the best decision we made! From start to finish, we got so much more than we expected! He is fun, kind and knows so much about weddings that from the moment we started to work with him, we were put completely at ease. Peace of mind when planning a wedding is hard to come by, but that is what we got from Jeff. Thanks Jeff, from the bottom of our hearts!
Prior to: We live in Calgary so although not too far away, Kelowna was still a destination wedding for us. Jeff made it easy to connect to make plans and discuss what we wanted. From choosing our music, to the set up of the wedding timeline and flow of the day/evening, he had a ton of great suggestions (all of which we used) that helped us plan the perfect wedding. He went out of his way to make time to meet with us when we were in Kelowna and had limited time – even though it was his busy busy season! The best part was the Mash up he did for us for our 1st dance. We decided to do a surprise dance with a few fun songs and moves and Jeff helped us by not only putting the Mash together (3 different versions based on changes we wanted) but also making recommendations for the music.
Wedding Day!: The entire day and party went off without a hitch (or if there was one, we certainly had no idea, because Jeff handled it all behind the scenes). He had all our music cued and managed all the logistics with our venue and Officiant so there was not confusion for us or our guests. Our cocktail hour was a smash hit with our Mash-up dance and he even extended it/and pushed back dinner so we could enjoy some of it as he knew that was important to us. The Party? Well what that will go down in history as “the best wedding ever” which is what all of our friends are saying. From some great icebreakers, to memorable and sentimental moments he pulled off the perfect mix. The dance floor shook all night and with the variety of ages we had there, he made sure there was a mix of music for everyone. Many of our friends and family have specifically asked where we found him and exclaimed how fantastic he was.
We could not have been more pleased. Thanks Jeff, from the bottom of our hearts!
