Be sure to ask about our uplighting packages!

Uplighting can add a dramatic effect to your reception. The color choices are endless and we offer packages of 5 to 30 light fixtures to completely transform your reception venue. The color can be fixed or gradually change throughout the course of the evening. Our lighting fixtures are self contained and can be placed virtually anywhere!

Depending on your lighting budget, we can craft some creative options for you.  The simplest package is the “corner package” where we just put 4 uplight fixtures in the corners of the room.  We can also do a feature wall behind the head table and just provide a color wash for that wall or combine that with the corners. If the budget allows, 10-15 lights are recommended but if you really add some drama to the room as seen in the pictures and video, you’ll want at least 20 lights or more.

Here is an example of a typical wedding reception format:

Ceremony & Pre-ceremony
If your ceremony is in the same location as the reception, we can play your ceremonial music and provide any P/A and microphones required for your event.

Cocktail Hour
While the guests arrive, we are playing either a light popular jazz, classical, or a light rock-soul and oldies mix. Because your guests are spending this time conversing with friends and relatives that they may have not see in a while, we try to keep the music low-key and the volume unobtrusive.

Bride and Groom Arrive
Usually the photographer will take the bridal party for pictures after the ceremony.  Once the photographer has completed this photo session, it is time for the bridal party to enter the reception.

Bridal Party Introductions
As cocktail hour comes to a close, we will line up your wedding party and make all of your introductions.  Very often, the wedding party will be led to the outside of the dance floor, the bride and groom to the center and we’ll go right into the first dance.

First Dance
The bride and groom select this song prior to their wedding date. This song should be well thought out, and define something special about the two of you. This dance can take place either after the cake cutting, or it may have taken place when the bride and groom were introduced.

Blessing
Once your bridal party is seated at the head table, your entertainer will invite the person you have chosen by name to say the blessing. Once the blessing is complete, your DJ will now draw the attention to the person who is proposing the toast.

Toast
The toast is usually given by the best man who will already have a wireless microphone at his seat.

Cake Cutting
The cake cutting usually happens as dinner is coming to an end so that the venue can slice and serve the cake before the dancing begins.  Music selections for the cake cutting can be endless.  You can specify a song of your choice or we can play a traditional song for you.  We will coordinate with your photographer, videographer and maitre d’ as to when is the proper time to begin the music for this special moment.

Parent Dances
After the bride and groom have danced their first dance as husband and wife, they may want to dance with their parents.  If these dances are occurring, the bride will first dance with her father, and then the groom will follow by escorting his mother to the dance floor for their special dance together. The parent dances can also happen later into the party.

Party Time!
After the formal dances have been completed, we will invite everyone to join in on the dance floor. We will always play to the crowd to get everyone involved in the fun.  There is no set recipe for wedding music.  There are always traditional songs that everyone loves, yet what separates a great DJ from mediocrity is his ability to read the crowd and get them moving!  Of course you’re always welcome to provide us with a list of your must-have’s and must-not’s.

Not all traditional activities are listed here and certainly you are not required to make your wedding “traditional.”  It’s your special day and you’re in control of the planning.  We’re just here to help you along the way and make it happen.
