Bar Harbor Regency Wedding | Maine DJ
S+K Bar Harbor Wedding | Event Recap
If you’ve been keeping tabs on my blog you may recall that I spent Memorial Day weekend in Bar Harbor for a pair of weddings. I already wrote about Alex and Isaiah‘s amazing wedding reception at the Bar Harbor Club. Now, I want to share with you my experience with Kelly and Steven who hosted their reception at the Bar Harbor Regency.
When I first spoke with these two lovebirds I could sense a real passion. A passion for one another, a passion for life and a passion to host an awesome celebration. With the venue locked in, Kelly and Steven focused their attention on surrounding themselves with amazing vendors. After our initial email correspondence and phone conversations I was really hopeful that I’d have a chance to work with these two. Fortunately for me, Kelly and Steven thought my DJ services were the right fit for their Maine Wedding!
Throughout the planning process we had a lot of fun brainstorming ideas, discussing song selections, and planning a sequence of events that would flow nicely for their intimate wedding. You may recall, the night before (at Alex and Isaiah’s wedding) there were 180 guests. Steven and Kelly were on the opposite end of the spectrum. You see, they were planning a ceremony and reception for 36 people. In my experience, many DJs get nervous about a smaller gathering. And, in fairness, it can be tricky. However, in my career I’ve done many intimate celebrations which has given me experience to draw on to ensure everyone (regardless of the guest count) has a good time. And, it doesn’t hurt that Kelly and Steven are so outgoing and eager to party! I had a good sense after getting to know these two that their party wouldn’t disappoint.

The day of their wedding it became evident very quickly that Kelly, Steven along with their family and friends were all there to celebrate this moment. From their beautiful ceremony, to their high-energy recessional I got the impression that everyone was there to let loose. And, they were!
Hosting their ceremony and reception at the Bar Harbor Regency, Kelly and Steven had the amazing Maine Coast as their backdrop. Guests soaked up the view as we got the day started. Once the celebration moved inside and the dance floor was open there was no stopping Kelly, Steven and their friends. For a group of 36 the dance floor was always packed. The energy was through the roof. And the smiles were ear to ear. Truly, an amazing reception for two amazing people. It was such a joy to be involved with such an intimate, warm-hearted and meaningful day.

In Their Words
I’m a straight shooter and I never go out of my way to provide feedback unless it is completely warranted. In this case I felt a need to write about my amazing experience with Greg. Let me begin by saying planning a wedding is not easy and at times can be very stressful. Greg made everything so easy..not once did I stress about anything DJ or MC related. He made us feel like we were his number one priority every time we spoke. Any request we had or advice we needed he was there for us. I can say he bent over backwards for us and went above & beyond for all of our needs. He was friendly and professional..he made us feel at ease and less stressed for our wedding. His uplighting was beautiful and it made our reception look really good. We gave him a lot of control over what songs to play and he got people on the dance floor! We had a tiny wedding of only 36 but there wasn’t a moment the dance floor wasn’t packed. There’s not enough kind words I can say about Greg and how incredibly happy we were with choosing him to be our DJ. Great guy..made our lives easier and less stressed..professional & takes his job very seriously…provides superb entertainment..would highly, highly recommend his services!
