Having been in business since 1987, Milestones DJ has performed at hundreds upon hundreds of weddings. Many of those weddings were very unique and we have on occasion found ourselves in, let’s say, “interesting” situations that we haven’t quickly forgotten.
In all of our 26 years of providing services for weddings, a performance coming up next weekend will be a first for us. You see, there isn’t going to be a wedding at all. In fact, the “bride” isn’t even engaged to her boyfriend. We will only be DJing a single song – the Father-Daughter dance.
Our client Rachel’s father, Dr. James Wolf is terminally ill with pancreatic cancer. His doctors have informed him that he’ll be lucky if he lasts another six months. Rachel – as you could imagine – is sad that her father won’t be able to walk her down the aisle once that special day of hers arrives, but she felt that she could have the next best thing…the Father-Daughter dance with her dad.
Typically, we would never post private information like this about our client and their private function, but this is yet another reason why this performance will be unique. We were contacted initially by Nick Monacelli, a reporter with News 10, the ABC affiliate in Sacramento, CA. Rachel explained to us that she had been talking about this idea on her Facebook page and her cousin decided to contact the local media. For Rachel, this whole situation has gone beyond her wildest dreams.
Rachel will now be riding up to a gazebo in a park in Auburn where her dad will be able to see her get out of a limousine in a wedding dress. Many local wedding vendors have donated their time, talent and products to make this day happen for these two and if they are feeling anything like us, they are grateful to even be a part of it.
When we spoke to Rachel this morning, we told her how much we liked her idea and what a great thing it will be to have their Father-Daughter dance forever…for the both of them.
Milestones DJ is proud to able to provide our services for Rachel and James. We can’t think of a better cause for celebration than this. We’re looking forward to helping out.
