This past weekend, I dj’d a wedding reception at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. If you have been here then you already know that this is a very unique place. The reception was held in the “Hall of Fame” section of the building. I must say, It was an honor to dj there and you could not have helped but notice that you were surrounded by greatness. The plaques of champions names covered the walls and the colorful jockey silks graced the top of the room throughout. I spent the earlier part of the afternoon at the track… so being right down the street, I arrived nice and early. I even had the pleasure to take a leisurely stroll around the museum. The history of horse racing is captivating to say the least and I definitely want to make a return visit!
The reception went very well and I have to thank all of the staff at the Hall of Fame for making everything so incredibly smooth. Just outside the hall, food stations were set up. The staff was super friendly and the food was nothing short of delicious. Compliments to the chef on a superb job on the sirloin! As the night progressed, guests of all ages from 7 to seemingly 70 stayed on the dance floor the entire night! I don’t know how they had the energy… Even my feet were starting to hurt! Joann Hoose Photography was in charge of snapping pics. Thank you Joann for sending some samples so promptly. I can’t wait to see the rest. The best feeling came the following day when the bride Colleen emailed me to say how happy she was with everything and how everyone was asking her for my number. To receive an email from a bride on her honeymoon thanking me reminds me why I love to do what I do. Thank you Colleen!
