Hurricane Productions Nate Hawley - Official Rutgers Football and Wrestling DJ

If you know anything about Hurricane Productions, you know that we have a longstanding relationship with Rutgers University. Many of our staff, including founders Vincent Velasquez and Strato Doumanis, are alumni, and our team frequently works with the university to provide media and entertainment services for its sporting and student events.

What you may not know is that our go-to DJ for many of these events is also a Scarlet Knight himself. In 2014, Nathan "Nate Tunes" Hawley was a sophomore studying Information Technology and Informatics at the State University when he began working for Hurricane Productions as a student DJ. Today, he is known across campus for spinning tunes at a variety of Rutgers Athletic events, including football games (he's the "Official DJ of Rutgers Football"), wrestling matches, and gymnastics meets.

But Nate isn't just a sports DJ – this talented young web developer and electronic musician also knows how to start a party. Raised on classic house vinyl, Nate has brought his multi-genre musical knowledge to many Rutgers Student Affairs events, as well as the annual Rutgers University Dance Marathon and Club Alex events. On the weekends, Nate frequently teams up with Emcee Robert Padovano to DJ many Hurricane Productions private events.

Megan and Tyler - Versailles Ballroom Wedding - Ramada Inn in Toms River, NJ

On a gorgeous late summer day, Megan Doorly and Tyler Ruperto were married in the quiet New Jersey beach town of Lavallette.

The couple and their respective wedding parties celebrated and exchanged gifts as they prepared for the big day. Megan and her bridesmaids walked from their rental house down to the shore. Meanwhile, Tyler and his groomsmen departed from their rooms at the Ramada Inn in Toms River – where the new Mr. and Mrs. Ruperto would later hold their reception – and shared a toast on the bus ride to the beach.

Megan and Tyler planned a first look that was captured by Hurricane Productions media professionals. The wedding party lined up along the entrance to the beach, creating an aisle for the bride to walk through. The groom waited for her near the water, with his back turned.

She tapped his shoulder and the two shared a private, emotional moment together before their ocean-side photo shoot.

That afternoon, family and friends gathered at the Lavallette Gazebo for Megan and Tyler's ceremony, for which Hurricane Productions provided a wireless sound system. After the couple exchanged vows, guests headed over to the Versailles Ballroom at the Ramada Inn for the cocktail hour and reception. DJ and MC Alvin Gay kept the party going, from the grand introductions through the final dance of the evening.

As part of their package, Megan and Tyler received a feature-length, 60 to 90-minute edit of the full-day footage taken by our videographers. This included the first look, ceremony, special dances, toasts, and even a special Delta Gamma Song performed for Megan by her sorority sisters.

Patty and Dan - Sunset Ballroom Point Pleasant NJ Wedding

Labor Day weekend at the Jersey Shore is always full of parties, but this year, Patty Rivas and Dan Kaiserman had another event to celebrate: their wedding day.

On a beautiful September afternoon, the couple was married at St. Peter's Church in Point Pleasant, New Jersey. Following a beautiful Roman Catholic ceremony, the newlyweds and their wedding party enjoyed a champagne toast outside the church before heading to the beach for a photo and video shoot. Meanwhile, friends and family traveled to the nearby Jack Baker's Lobster Shanty for a fun-filled reception in the gorgeous, ocean-view Sunset Ballroom.

With intelligent lighting provided by Hurricane Productions to set the mood, DJ Alvin and MC Vincent Velasquez kept guests on the dance floor all night as they celebrated the new Mr. and Mrs.

Hurricane's video team remained with Patty and Dan throughout the day to capture every special moment. From the pre-ceremony preparations to the final dance of the evening, it all was captured in stunning detail. As part of their package, the couple received a 3 to 4-minute wedding highlight video, as well as a feature-length, 60 to 90-minute edit of their entire wedding, including the ceremony, the beach photoshoot, special dances, toasts and the bride and groom's thank you message.
