What a season!
As we complete our last 2 weddings for the season, I'd like to say THANK YOU to all of our partners who help make this our most successful season ever! The venues, the cakes, the flowers, planners, hair and make up, photgraphers....everyone! If not for you, your work and your referrals, we wouldn't have had such a great season. Thanks again!
As I sit here in my office, I am thrilled to begin planning for next year. We've already started booking weddings for 2012 as well as some nice private parties. We're starting to work with our interns on both sound and lighting. We're looking to make big noise at the upcoming wedding expos and shows. And lastly, we're looking at what the new trends in music, lighting and sound equipment are in anticipation of staying ahead of our competition.
I'll post more soon!
Thanks again to our clients, vendors and famililes for a  great 2011!

Wedding of the Week!

Posted on July 29, 2011 at 12:54 AM Comments comments (25)
Our wedding of the week belongs to Jon and Olivia. This couple has been amazing to work with and I'm looking forward to doing my part and giving them the best party they've ever experienced! The venue (which is family owned and private) is in the middle of a beautiful vineyard in Healdsburg and anchored by an amazing contemporary style mansion. We've purchased a new Nikon camera and hopefully I'll learn how to use it to take some photos and post to our blog! 

Look for my follow up blog post coming soon!

Well it's been a long time since my last post. We've been incredibly busy (yay). The season is off to a great start. We've had the opportunity to work for a diverse group of newlyweds with each bringing their own personality to every event. From an "oldies" wedding, to a hip "club" style affair. Our new equipment has proven to be amazing. I truly believe it gives us an edge over our competition. Also being a "one stop shop" for DJ, Planning, Lighting and Coordinating truly give our clients the "peace of mind" that they need only deal with one company for all their wedding needs.  Please check out these photo's. They represent some of our latest work this season.

Congratulations to Todd and Erica Heald who were married this past Saturday at one of our private estate locations. This was a great group of folks looking to kick their shoes off and "fully" enjoy the day. The location was spectacular as was the food and music. There were some great surprises as the night went on. One was the organic gelato from a small company in Marin that used a bike to serve from (see attached pics). Then later, for those who were still a little hungry, the chef brought our some "Top Sirloin" Sliders served on Hawaiian Sweet Rolls. Then some Grilled Cheese sandwiches and to top it off, small, moist brownie squares and milkshake "shooter" in a shot glass. Everyone was thrilled and no one wanted to go home.

We were the Wedding Planners for this one and everything went to plan resulting in a very happy and satisfied client. Please check out the pics and send us a comment or two!


This Make's It All Worth While!!!!! (click to see more)

People sometimes ask me:
"Jon why do you do this? You've had a successful corporate career Why DJ?"
Well read this review from our latest bride and you'll see why. This may sound corny, but  when I got married, we had no money and there was no "family" money available for a formal wedding. So we went down to the Sonoma County Courthouse and were married by the Justice of the Peace. Afterwards, I went back to work and Maryann went to lunch with a family friend. We never had the opportunity to have "Our Special Day"  That was a long time ago.  As a result not having a "traditional" wedding of my own, now, I kind of live (vicariously) through the weddings of my clients and take what I do very personal. That being said, to get a review like this one makes it all worth while!
Thanks Britta and Brendan for sharing!

Runaway DJ Services was absolutely outstanding on our Wedding Day at Sova Gardens! They arrived early to make sure the setup went smoothly and spent the rest of the day making sure the music was perfect, helped with any issues that came up, reset tables, helped the clumsy dancers and even went above and beyond by cleaning up afterward (picking up trash and sweeping so we could leave the venue on-time and avoid a penalty fee!). They created a lovely atmosphere for our guests and you can tell they truly enjoyed being involved the wedding. They work extremely well together as a team to make sure you have every opportunity to relax and enjoy your special day. Jon and Bret are incredibly professional and easy to work with. We highly Highly HIGHLY recommend Runaway DJ Services- They will go the extra mile to make sure your big day is everything you hoped it could be! -Brendan & Britta Uniacke-

Sova Garden Wedding A Huge Success! (click "More" for pics)

Our highlighted wedding for this past weekend is the Uniacke Wedding! This fun loving group of family and friends was the perfect foundation for a great day. Sova Gardens provided a beautiful backdrop for an amazing ceremony, dinner and dancing. Runaway DJ and Event Planning took care of the rest. Our team; Bret (planning/coordinating), Matt and myself (DJ, Lighting and Sound), took on the wind and cold and delivered an unforgettable event! The bride, groom, parents and a ton of their friends and family stopped by to let us know they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and will be providing recommendations and referals worthy of our effort. 
We love making our clients happy! This is why we do this. Check out the pics from the event and leave us a comment or two.
As always, if you know anyone who's planning an event.....please give us a call!
