And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the pleasure of providing music for the Penn State Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity’s welcome reception that was held at Heritage Hall in Penn State’s HUB Robeson Center. Various Penn State organizations were on hand eager to talk to new and returning students. Brian Patchcoski, Director of the Penn State Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, and Sonya Wilmoth, Assistant Director of the Penn State Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, were greeting and welcoming students to the festive gathering.

This is the second year that And We Danced DJ Entertainment provided music for the awesome event! Students, faculty and organizational staff had fun hearing and dancing to LBGTQ Pride songs, pop LBGTQ songs and familiar line dancing songs such as the YMCA, Cupid Shuffle and the Cha Cha Slide. Even some of Penn State’s local police force members could not pass up the opportunity of dancing to the Cupid Shuffle.

Penn State’s Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity serves the entire Penn State community. It is currently located in the Boucke Building. Normal hours are Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm, and Wednesday they have expanded hours from 5 pm to 8 pm. The group recently changed it’s name to better serve the diversity that exists in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and related identities of the LGBTQ+ community. They offer educational social and supportive programs alongside workshops and individual consultations. The staff is always available and eager to support students, faculty and staff and honor each person’s gender and sexual diversity. The group has social media links to their activities on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr and Snapchat.

We send a big thank you out to the Penn State Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity for choosing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be part of your welcoming reception!

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the pleasure of providing sound and music for the recent marriage of Aimee Morgan and Jarrod Prebola at Belleville’s Brookmere Winery. Father Drew Morgan conducted the delightful ceremony. Aimee’s cousin Madison sung “The Way I Am” while Jarrod’s grandparents, the newlywed’s parents and Aimee’s tuxedo clad pooch were escorted to their seats. Madison was exquisite singing the beautiful “Ave Maria” following Fr. Morgan’s reflection. Aimee wore a stunning sleeveless, lace, white bridal gown designed by Maggie Sottero. The bridesmaids were garbed in champagne. Jarrod was attired in a gray suit while his groomsmen donned navy blue with petal pink ties. Beautiful doves were also present for the ceremony.

JP Edwards Grill and Bar, under the direction of Bobbi Unger, presented a delightful assortment of hors d’oeuvres and a delicious buffet for all to partake and enjoy. RW Photography was the wonderful photographer that captured the couple’s exchange of vows, first dance and all the enchanting moments throughout the day and night. Dorosh Documentaries made the couple’s video moments special with the use of drones. Aimee’s mom and sister lovingly decorated the wedding scene with flowers and crafted the beguiling bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages held or worn by family and friends. Dolce Vita created the gorgeous wedding cake. The newlyweds also had a dessert display featuring homemade cookies and candy for guests to partake, take home and enjoy.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment kept the excitement flowing with memorable music to pump up the crowd. The newlyweds began their night dancing to “Gravity” by John Mayer. Family and friends laughed and cheered while Jarrod and Aimee played the Shoe Game. At the end of the game, it was apparent that Jarrod and Aimee were the ideal couple. And We Danced DJ Entertainment kept the dance floor packed the entire night! Since Jarrod and Aimee are avid Penn State football fans, And We Danced DJ Entertainment serenaded the couple with the Penn State Fight Song.

Thank you Jarrod and Aimee for choosing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your wedding day festivities. Good luck in your new life as husband and wife!
