Perfect Weather for a River Farm Wedding!

Saturdays at the River Farm are always a special time, especially for those who are getting married there that day!  Chris and Cidney chose to host their Wedding Ceremony and Wedding Reception at the River Farm, and I must say they made an excellent choice!  The River Farm is located outside of Old Town Alexandria and just a few miles south of our nation’s capital in Washington, D.C.  Actually, the River Farm was once owned by President George Washington!  What better way to celebrate your marriage than to commemorate your special day on a renowned historic property such as the River Farm!

The weather was absolutely amazing, with blue skies, cool breezes, and zero humidity!  All guests were captivated by the scenic beauty that is ever-present at the River Farm.  Chris and Cidney exchanged vows at 4:30 in the afternoon, setting the tone for a joyous time with friends and family!

Chris and Cidney exchanging Vows. How Beautiful!

After a lovely dinner and cocktail reception, Chris, Cidney, and all their guests continued to enjoy their evening as DJ Jeremy kicked off dance time with popular favorites from Will Smith, Black Eyed Peas, and Maroon 5 – Moves Like Jagger!

This wedding was certainly one to remember:  Beautiful weather, delicious food, and of course, guests dancing the night away with good music!



Rain On Your Wedding Day – Lucky or Not?

Does Rain Bring Good Luck to Weddings?

Some say yes; others say no.  There are varying perceptions as to whether rain will bring good fortune to a marriage or serve as a predictor to its negative outcome.  Many speculations suggest rain on a couple’s wedding day is an omen of good fortune, leading to good health, prosperity, and with that an abundance of children!  Couples everywhere have pondered this for years, and still there seems to be no indicator as to whether rain is lucky or not.  This is why we came up with this poll to ask everyone:

How Important is the Music for Your Wedding?


, , , , ,

How important is the music for your wedding? When your guests leave the wedding talking about what a great time they had, they are not talking about the shrimp cocktail. It is because they spent the evening on the dance floor!  At Davis Event Group, our goal is to make sure every client is matched with the DJ or band that is perfect for them. It is not a process of just going through the roster and seeing who is available on the date. And, we work hard at DEG to make sure that all the details have been covered right up until the moment the DJ or bandleader takes over. No matter what else goes on at your wedding-the music will make it the party! Here is just a small sample of our reviews!  (see them on Wedding Wire)

We were just so happy with how DJ Steve read our crowd and played a perfect mix of music. He had everyone dancing the entire evening. There were just enough slow songs to take a breathe. He ws also the perfect speaker, announcing all that needed to be said in a fun and entailing manner without being too much of a presence. I guess I could say he had a perfect balance. Everyone commented on how much fun they had at our reception and I think DJ Steve had a lot to do with that!   Rosemary                                                                  ****
We were thrilled with the performance by Encore. The dance floor was never empty and our guests sang every song with the band. Encore was talented, professional, and overall, fun! Jan Davis was very helpful in booking them  for our reception and she was responsive and easy to work with. Highly recommended!   Joe
 Our DJ was Aaron Hahn. All I wanted for our wedding was for people to be on the dance floor having a great time, and Aaron made that possible. He met with us and gave us much needed guidance on our schedule and potential music selections, putting us at ease about the day. The day-of, he helped us with our processional, kept us on schedule, and he played the best music that kept the dance floor jumping throughout the night. We felt so fortunate to have him as our DJ and received a ton of compliments. Aaron was great!!
Jan Davis and our band Full Circle were amazing! We’ve gotten a million raving reviews about how awesome Full Circle was. Jan was great throughout the entire process. She gave candid opinions on the different bands based on my preferences. I would highly recommend getting in contact with Jan for your upcoming wedding.   Jayme 
Jan Davis Entertainment and Events were wonderful to work with! They really listened to me and our needs. After contacting a few other companies, and not finding what I wanted, I turned to Jan who suggested the perfect band for us on the first try! Jan made our decision really easy…she was quick to respond, easy to work with and flexible. The band we selected was fantastic! We received so many compliments from our guests on how talented and fun they were. They really turned our wedding reception up a notch! I couldn’t be happier! I highly recommend Jan for all of your wedding and event entertainment needs.

Our Latest Wedding Review!

“We booked a band and a string quartet (for the ceremony and the cocktail hour) for our daughter’s wedding. I cannot say enough about how fabulous both groups were. The band was absolutely amazing — they are gifted musicians who were, prior to and during our event, responsive to every nuance of our needs. The string quartet was also outstanding. Of course we had done our research ahead of time and knew of the band’s reputation, but we were beyond pleased. Thank you, Jan!”
