Today’s wedding DJ interview is with DJ Dan Moran of LifeBass Entertainment, LLC, based in Norwalk, CT! Enjoy:

Tell us about yourself and how you started playing.

I began about ten years ago performing for fundraisers and college events. Over time I started working corporate events in the area, this led to relationships with talent agencies like Kunjan Collective and Scratch Music Group. Next thing you know I’m DJing events across CT, NYC and Long Island and I’ve left my full time job in Finance.

Five years at Bridgewater Associates ingrained a doctrine of constantly pushing myself to improve in all areas and provide the best customer experience possible. That’s what all this is about at the end of the day, putting on a good time! And not just on the dance-floor, but before and after the event as well.

The Practical Guide To Insuring Your Engagement Ring (3)

Today’s guest post, brought to us by Afshin of Estate Diamond Jewelry (New York, NY) covers a very important topic that doesn’t get a lot of attention: engagement ring insurance! Enjoy:

Your engagement ring may well be the third most expensive purchase you ever make, after a house and a car, and yet so many people – for whatever reason – don’t insure it in the way they would other home contents. Part of the reason may be that they simply don’t know those expensive items aren’t usually covered by homeowner’s insurance, or it may be that they don’t believe anything will ever happen to it. Whatever the reason, a lot of those people realize their mistake only when it’s too late.

Insuring anything isn’t really that complicated, but it is true that jewelry does require a little more effort on the part of the owner. However, it is still quite a simple process that is well worth the effort. Here, we show you how to make sure, not only that your engagement ring is insured, but that it is insured appropriately.

Vineyard Wedding in Delphos, Ohio (8)

Today’s real wedding brought to us by Style & Story Creative (Columbus, OH) is brimming with glamorous vintage details! Here’s the lovely bride to tell us more:

Our wedding was utterly breathtaking. For getting married Labor Day weekend in Ohio we were uncertain what weather we would end up with. The sky was a crisp blue with beautiful big white clouds and a nice summer breeze. We were married in a catholic cathedral style church, the church I was lucky enough to grow up in, in small town rural Delphos, Ohio . The kind of church built in the late 1800s with floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows, intricate and detailed paintings, and stunning woodwork.
