Faruk and Erika’s wedding in Wilder, Idaho took place on the beautiful day of August 1, 2020. They were originally planning for a destination wedding at Brundage Mountain Resort in McCall, Idaho, but fate (ahem, covid-19) had other plans. With only a couple months before the big day, they decided to move their venue to a private residence in the quaint, rural town of Wilder, just 45 minutes west of Boise.
Despite the stress of having to make last minute changes, it appeared Faruk and Erika had the time of their lives on their wedding day. And I was so happy and honored to be part of it.
They actually hired me one year before their wedding day after seeing me perform at their friend’s wedding. They said, “we have to have you,” which is such a cool compliment. One of the main reasons was they wanted to DANCE and make sure their friends and family had an amazing time. I think we made that happen!
What I’ve Learned
I’ve learned this year that even though many couples have had to switch gears with their wedding planning, many of them are still having the most incredible celebrations. The couple’s family, friends and vendors are enthusiastic and excited to be there, and just ready to make the best out of a tough situation. Erika and Faruk’s wedding was no different.
This Huskic’s were so great to work with and I couldn’t be happier with how things turned out for them. Check out what they had to say about my services:
“Simply put, Eric went above and beyond for our wedding. With so many last minute changes due to Covid-19, Eric spent hours with us discussing our new plans and making useful recommendations to make our day go as smooth as possible.
Eric is a professional in every sense of the word. There’s a reason he was won multiple DJ awards, and for weddings he is much more than just a DJ.
Trusting someone on your big day is nerve wrecking, but choosing Eric to DJ/MC will truly give you one less thing to worry about because he will surpass any expectations you would have for someone in his role.” – Erika & Faruk
