“The DJ was very professional, personable, and was open to any suggestions that I had. During the reception, he seamlessly transitioned from one song to the next which kept everyone on the dance floor. It was exactly what I’d hoped for!” – Joslin Latz
This weekend I was honored to be a part of a company friend’s special day. Maureen Davis hired us last year for her son Kyle’s Wedding Reception, which was held this past Sunday in Seymour, Ct at the Inn at Villa Bianca.
We setup a small PA system at the lower pavilion for an outside ceremony. A wireless microphone was also provided for the officiant and a reader.
The bridal party walked down the aisle to Cat Power’s “Sea of Love”. The Bride entered to the classical Canon in D. The Ceremony was performed by a Justice of the Peace, and a reading of “What Love Is” by a family member. After the couple was married, they walked back down the aisle to Jason Mraz “I’m Yours”.
The couple went for pictures while the guests made their way to the main pavilion the cocktail hour.
When it was time to introduce the Bridal Party, parents and couple int
o the main recption hall, each couple was introduced to their own song which they chose or was selected by the couple for a special meaning.
Directly after introductions Kyle and Joslin danced for the first time as Husband and Wife together to Tim Mcgraw’s “My Best Friend”. As Dinner was served, the staff at the Villa Bianca had a complete table setting for the photographer and I, and served us all 3 courses. I mention this because this was just one facet of this venue that testified to their professionalism and committment to a successful event. The Maitre D Tiffany was on top of things all night, and coordinated the timeline and all events with us to perfection.
Our lighting for this elegant evening included LED color Wash lights for the dance floor, purple/blue uplighting on the pavilion pillars and a dance floor monogram. The monogram was a heart pattern, set with a purple color.
Dinner included a salad, pasta, and choice of Beef, Chicken or Fish.
After Dinner the couple cut a 4tier Chocolate Cake, decorated in a beach sand theme.
During Dinner, I got the chance to get acquainted with the photographer of the evening. I was thrilled to discover that she was based out of Quaker Hill, just minutes from our office. her name is Karen Schlink, and her website www.karenschlink.com should be updated soon with high quality professional shots of this Wedding. We will keep you updated and make an attempt to post some of Karen’s work here, with her permission.
We kept the music flowing smoothly with mixes that transitioned seamlessly from the 70′s to 80′s and all the way to Pitbull. Below is a video mix of the dance floor in action, many with the Bride out in front having a blast! We always tell our clients that as long as the Bride is having fun, the rest of the party will follow.
I must add the following to this post because I think some couples will be able to use this idea. Below is a picture of a koozie the couple had made with their name and Wedding date on it. There was a table with these laid out, and enough for each guest to have more than 1. I was given one of these myself. I must say this is more than just a great Wedding favor idea, it is so practical, modern, and useful. I have been using mine all Labor Day weekend since!
