Wedding September 25, 2010

Cliff contacted Silver Sound, from the Moshulu recommended list, ten days before their wedding.  DJ Paul Evans happened to be available and, it turned out, Paul knew Titi from her Salsa dancing at Brasils Nightclub in Old City, Philadelphia.  Paul had a few days to prepare an eclectic mixture of music from Nigeria, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Haiti and Columbia.  Paul came with an assistant and three separate sound setups, with Ceremony on the upper Deck, Cocktails on the Mid Deck and the Reception in the Orchid room.  The weather for the Ceremony was perfect with blue skies and a nice breeze.  A lapel wireless mic was provided for the Officiant who remarked later, how clear her words were.  Cliff chose some special processional music and Titi walked down the aisle to an exact moment at the peak of a dramatic opera piece by Lucianno Pavarotti.  Titi and Cliff prepared special sentimental words for each other with the Delaware and Ben Franklin bridge as a backdrop.  During cocktails the Salsa tracks had some guests trying out their dance moves, other styles played were Calypso, Bossanova, Cha Cha and other flavorful genres.  During the reception our couple danced up a storm, the Nigerian and other fast moving African tracks along with Merengue and Salsa carried the day.  Cliff said “Ten Days or Ten weeks to get ready, you know what you’re doing.  I’m not sure what we would have done without you.”  Special thanks came via Email and Facebook from Titi where Paul posted over 100 pictures taken by his assistant.  Our couple is back in the Boston area, starting their lives together as husband and wife, where Dr. Titi Alabi has a family practice in Salem, MA.
