For Stephanie & Shawn’s wedding, I felt like XZibit on a new show called “Pimp My Tent.”
The wedding was hosted in their spacious backyard, and the tent looked amazing thanks to Deanna, Matt, and their staff at Sassy Soiree. However, as stunning as it was, it became even more awe-inspiring after Brandon and I set up an amazing lighting setup. It wasn’t overly complicated, just three stands with floods, a couple simple effects, some white floods and a monogram; but the look they create was stellar. They were wirelessly controlled with our computers so every special event had it’s own dramatic scene change.
Thank God that Deanna showed Stephanie and Shawn how important lighting is, as it would’ve been dark without it. Even tent lighting alone isn’t bright enough.
The party itself was pretty intense, highlighted halfway through with a fireworks show! Check out the videos and pics below!
So after a while of not working together, Kelly and I got to tag team a wedding reception again. Shawn and Whitney hosted their reception at Eaglebrooke Golf and Country Club.
Enough said. If you read my material long enough, then you know I melt for the amazing food here. We were invited to a delicious feast including a make-your-own fajitas and a pasta bar.. mmmm. Soooo good.
With 250 hungry people, we got a little behind, but no worries: people came to celebrate, dance, and have a good time. Indeed, as soon as the first beat dropped, the floor packed and stayed that way.
Our lighting package absolutely transformed Eaglebrooke and really brought out their wedding colors. Pics below and an awesome video– you gotta check it out!
TK and Jessica wanted to party and party hard. They had a big variety of tastes in music and so did their family and friends… after our last meeting prior to the wedding, I knew that Monica and I would have a blast. They did a great job planning their own wedding, as the Admiral’s Inn in Winter Haven was completely transformed; Our uplighting, flood lighting, monogram, stars, and under table lighting added the perfect final touch!
As we provided DJ and MC services for the ceremony and wedding reception, Snap Yourself Silly provided a photobooth that was used the entire time, including all the props!
Check out the photos below as well as the video summary. Though TK and Jessica left, the party continued for another hour, and several guests stayed all night… especially for a special performance of Bohemian Rhapsody from Dave and Mike.
Jason and Nikia wanted something that we love to do: TOTAL VENUE TRANSFORMATION. The Lake Eva Banquet Hall in Haines City, FL is already a beautiful place. This means monogram on the floor, total flooding with lights, uplights in a custom array, and of course our awesome spotlight to highlight them amongst the 250+ people there. Joanne did a great job with the coordination and linens while Maggi impressed everyone with a beautiful bride’s cake and a unique groom’s cake… see the photos below to be surprised!
A large variety of music was played from Nikia’s favorite group, Lady Antebellum (also my favorite), to lots of flashback booty music per request. This is the first time I played “Shake Ya Tailfeather” in years and even got to play Rated R – In Here Tonight! Check out some awesome photos and a video below! The video shows a before and after shot of the whole room. Thank you to my good friend and colleague, Jason Jani, for the idea!
Another small dance group, but they were a lot of fun; as you can tell, they danced non-stop! The location was the Omni Resort in Championsgate, Florida. This hotel ALWAYS does a great job making every vendor feel important and doing ANYTHING possible to help out with the event. Combine that with an amazing front of house service and some of the BEST food in Orlando and you have a top-notch venue for events.
The group requested all kinds of music, but responded the most to southern crunk, snap, and booty music.
Simply put, I had a blast! Check out the photos and video below. You’ll see a rotating projected logo, basic lighting, and karaoke!
