Close family and friends, who traveled far and wide, gathered at Best Western in Oshkosh after the ceremony to enjoy cocktail hour consisting of DJ's choice of music coming from the simple, but elegant Ember set up. As guests trickled in, the fried cheese curds were the fan favorite as everyone admired the centerpieces with flowers from 88 Events, framed by baby pumpkins and candles coordinating with the gold, navy, and burgundy autumn theme.
Welcome to the Charles Family Barn: equipped with a cozy pallet-stove fireplace, adorable pumpkins, sunflowers, an impressive hayloft, and two friendly barn cats. Porsha and Reed worked hard to make their wedding day as special as they could and showcase their kind personalities. Reed's dad even shared with us the history of the barn and showed us the date it was built, penciled on the barn post.
The sound of racing cars flew into the Tufte Center at Road America as Tyler and Alyssa set up for Kurt and Gaby’s wedding reception. The industrial trussing of SoundFire DJ’s Brilliance Option was set facing the front of the dance floor, where two moving heads and four wash lights would be mounted, eagerly waiting to be used for an epic party. We placed sixteen lights to balance out the room, enhance the soft vibe, and flood the walls with a soft blush, rose-gold color. Flower arrangements made by Gaby’s mom, Ginnie, provided the perfect finishing touches of the romantically chic room.
Picking the entertainment for your wedding can be one of the most challenging tasks for couples!
For better or worse, the entertainment is what makes or breaks a wedding reception. The most important ingredients couples want out of their wedding day entertainment are typically the following:
On one of the most beautiful August days, Johanna and Aaron celebrated their marriage with their closest friends and family. Under a large tent decorated by the team at Sash & Bow in the Green Bay Botanical Gardens, each plate was adorned with a packet of seeds, and each table had a description of favorite places Johanna and Aaron had been to, such as, “The Spotted Cat: our favorite little jazz club in New Orleans.” The kissing wheel was set up in anticipation of the couple of honor kissing throughout dinner.
Ninty-mile an hour straight-line winds were not what Laura and Dan ordered for their wedding day. With trees toppled over, power lines down, and branches lining the streets, family and friends still gathered to support Laura and Dan say I do. Their ceremony didn’t have any power, but it was a magical moment, as Laura walked down the aisle, her beautiful strapless, full-length Cinderella gown sparkling in the post-storm lull.
Fortunately, the Red Lion, Paper Valley Hotel had power for Laura and Dan’s Disney themed reception. Cocktail hour was held in the reception hall, with décor to match Laura’s love for Disney. Every guest was assigned a Disney character, which matched with a dinner table. Everything was soft, purple, silver, and fairy-tale like.
It's no question that wedding planning can be one of the most stressful endeavors a couple goes through in their journey to say "I do". Having a celebration with your friends and family can be one of the most rewarding experiences you'll ever have in your life, and ...
Wedding DJ prices are all over the place...
Hindsight is 20/20 they say, and after the vows brides often look back at their wedding and see clearly how they could have made life easier in the planning process. Here are the top 5 things brides would have changed...
This wedding was one for the record books in terms of how amazing everything was, and how much fun you could tell everyone had. The day started sunny & breezy on the west lawn of Stone Harbor where the ceremony took place. With a beautiful view of the canal set as the backdrop guests were quickly filling the couple hundred seats they had set out. Among some ambient music to set the mood, our wedding party prepped for their entrance. The music briefly paused, and the wedding party entered. Just before the bride's processional, the music paused again only to be replaced by the sound of Detroit muscle as Mike Rankin escorted his daughter to the ceremony site in his classic 'Cuda muscle car.
The audience gave their first of many thunderous cheers for our couple that day. Music resumed, and the ceremony took place with ease.
