The last wedding of the year always has to be a party… and luckily Ashley and Michael wanted to do just that. They were also an incredibly cool, go-with-the flow type of couple… and as a DJ, I love that!
Hosted at the Butler Room in the Rosen Hotel, it was a pleasure working with Francesca. I’ve had the opportunity to work with her before she was employed at the Rosen, so I knew things would be easy regarding setup and such… and indeed it was. Working with Francesca made this the smoothest event I’ve done there… she really had a grip on things and was always easy to locate. If she was tied up handling something, one of her staff was readily available.
The lighting was simple but SUPER effective: 2 LED washes and one centerpiece light really flooded the area. This is thanks to the tall 2nd story balcony floor of the Butler room. By having the lights up high, the entire room was washed in rich lighting.
We had requests all night from older music to true 90s bass booty music (my fave), so there truly was a bit for everyone. Check out the pics and video below! Happy New Year and may God bless all of you this 2013!
When Carlisha from A Rose Design sent Mark and Sara our way, we knew they’d be an amazing couple to work for. Sara is a geologist and Mark works in engineering for the Disney Orlando theme parks, but also used to be an animator for the animation giant. They’re huge Star Wars fans, or really any of the big epic movies, and wanted to incorporate that into the wedding.
Since they were worried that no one in their family dances (which was a “Challenge Accepted” moment for me), they also wanted to do the Bride & Groom Game Show.
Fast-forward to the day of, the Sheraton Lake Buena Vista was decorated with an all white look with centerpieces that Mark made himself. Their primary wedding color, blue, would come in through the uplighting. However, we had a small dilemma, all the beautiful white in the room was offset by the yellow tint that ordinary lights give away. This is when my wife, Monica, came up with the idea of mounting our LED blinders to bounce off the ceiling. Now the room was pure white and the blues looked amazing!!!
The ceremony was a bit cold, but guests were greeted with some of the best tasting hot-cocoa ever as they walked in to the cocktail hour. If that wasn’t enough, there were delicious cookie to accompany said cocoa.
The event itself was a blast and even when it was an intimate wedding reception, people did dance. Check out the pics and video below!
I’ve known Michael for a long time; he even worked for us at one point. He’s the kind of guy who’d give you his shirt even if it’s the only one he owns. When he told me he was hosting an intimate reception of close family and friends, I told him I’d love to be the DJ and MC for him. Though his budget was tight, I told him it was a wedding gift.
He asked me to take a few pics, too, which is why this gallery is much larger than most.
A Premier Entertainment has been at the Grand Plaza before, but I personally haven’t. As a matter of fact, it has been a while since I’ve driven out to St. Pete Beach for a wedding. All I have to say is WOW! This room is stunning!
The beachside ceremony went smoothly, despite the recent storms we had. The reception started at 12:00 in the afternoon, so all hope for lighting was lost.. ALMOST. My new lights were very visible even in the bright sunlight… so that made Michael, Patrick (my assistant) and myself giddy!

Kyle and I had the honor of being the main DJ and co-MC for Blair and Michele’s wedding… it just so happened that I tagged along with him to get some good video footage of him and since we had my system from the school party we did earlier that day, we tag-teamed this wedding.
It was a bit different than most, since their tradition was that a family member is the MC for the night. The uncle started the night off with the intros and formalities, and Kyle took over for the bouquet and garter toss.
The large video screen provided a custom slide show which Michele and Blair provided. It fit perfectly inside the Paradise Cove and everyone got a great view!

Bravo to Beth and the staff at Eaglebrooke (Lakeland) for hosting an amazing event that helped raise money for cancer research!
The party started with a few members/guests lip syncing and performing at the same time… while they dressed up like the respective artist. My wife, Monica, was even asked to participate dressed like Dolly Parton.
While guests enjoyed the performances, Eaglebrooke invited everyone to an amazing dinner. My favorite was the tortelinni. Mmm!
Check out the pics and video below… this is a great event to be a DJ for!!
