This past weekend I had the pleasure of DJing the Wilson wedding in Downingtown, PA. The event was held at the beautiful family estate of Brey and Roger Stone. Hearthstone Estate was built in 1651 and is being fully restored by the couple. After you drive over a small bridge and pass a magnificent waterfall that cascades from the property’s pond you arrive at the vintage barn where the wedding was held.
Brey and Becca did a wonderful job preparing for Olivia and Keenan’s big day. The barn was transformed into a beautiful rustic venue with lights, pillows, flowers, and linens that brought the space to life. The barn housed the appetizers, DJ set up, a photo booth area complete with props, and some seating. Just outside the barn the dining area was set up on a lush area of lawn centered around a small dance floor. It was truly done impeccably.
Just seeing Keenan and Olivia together was quite the sight. It was a pleasure to provide the music for a couple so in love. After the bridal party made use of the amazing scenery at Hearthstone Estate for their photography, a delicious dinner was served. I can not forget to mention that the brides sister Alex gave one of the most heartfelt and genuine Maid of Honor speeches I have heard in my career as a wedding DJ. It was a moving tribute to her sister, and the entire room could feel her words. Although the humidity was high, the couple and their guests were sure to make use of the dance floor when the party was ready to get started. I was happy to play such an eclectic mix of music for the unique group of guests and everyone seemed to enjoy the entertainment.
As the sun went down the grounds glowed under a plethora of twinkling lights and lanterns. As a few raindrops began to fall, the guests sent the couple off by lining the exit waving sparklers. Thankfully the rain held out all day until the very end. They say rain on your wedding day is good luck, and only a few drops gave the the happy couple just the right amount of luck.
Congratulations Keenan and Olivia. It was my honor to be part of your special day. I give you well wishes for many years together.
