Wedding Ceremony Sound

When planning an on-site ceremony make sure your guests can hear this special event. J&S can handle all of the logistics for you and tailor a package that meets your specific needs.

Ceremony packages include a compact DJ system with your custom music selections for pre-ceremony prelude, processional and recessional and a two or (optional) four channel wireless mic combo kit (any combination of lapel or hand-held mics) with mixer. This is the perfect option for destination ceremonies requiring music and microphones so that the officiant and wedding vows are clearly heard by all guests.  Four channel kits include a hand-held mic on a stand for ceremony readings and an even an extra mic for a live musician.  We can even provide a line-in for musician instruments.  We offer an optional, battery powered AC inverter or ultra-quiet generator to provide electricity for remote ceremony locations where a traditional power source isn’t readily available.

Just like our wedding reception packages, we can create a custom ceremony package to meet almost any requirement including live instrumentalists. Here are the two most common packages:

 

Small Ceremony Package

The Ceremony package includes a compact DJ system, one powered QSC K8 speaker and two wireless lavaliere mics.  One is for your officiant and one to be worn by the groom.  The groom’s mic will pick up the bride’s vows as well. Your music selections to are pre-loaded for the prelude, processional and recessional.  Rates start at $200.00.

Ceremony Package Plus

The Ceremony Plus package includes two QSC K8 speakers, a compact DJ system with your custom music selections to be played for prelude, processional and recessional and a four channel wireless mic combo kit.  This is the perfect package to mic the officiant and groom plus have a hand-held mic on a stand for an additional ceremony reader and even an extra mic for a live musician. Rates start at $300.00.

Beach Wedding Ceremony?

Getting married on the beach or off the beaten path where there is no access to electricity? We have ultra-portable, quiet generators or inverted battery power systems available for a small additional fee of $150.00. Price includes equipment rental, all necessary cabling and additional setup.

Lighting Options

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!

We create custom lighting packages to meet your needs and budget.  The basic package includes 4-6 lights to accent specific architectural features of a room.  Or, we can do a feature wall to add a color wash to the wall behind a head table.  Common packages include ten to twenty fixtures to dramatically transform the look of a room.  Our fixtures are battery powered, wirelessly controlled and feature six high powered, 18watt 6-in-1 LED’s that can be placed almost anywhere.

If the budget allows, 10-15 lights are recommended but if you really want to add some drama to the room as seen in the pictures and video, you’ll want at least 25 lights or more.

Package pricing varies depending on the number of fixtures and static color vs. a programmable light show. Our most common package starts at $500 to nicely light an average sized banquet room with one static color.

Projected Monogram (Gobo)

Haven’t been to a wedding in a while? Here’s a typical wedding 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
Before your guests even arrive, we are playing either your custom music choice or a collection of light popular jazz, classical, or a light rock-soul and oldies type mix. Because your guests are spending this time conversing with friends and relatives that they may have not see in a while, we will keep the music low-key and the volume unobtrusive.

Bride and Groom Arrive
Typically, 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 to formal introductions

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 to share their first dance as husband and wife.

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 (optional)
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 toasts are typically proposed by the best man and maid of honor who will be invited to stand next to the bride and groom at their head table where a live mic has already been placed.

Cake Cutting
The cake cutting usually happens as dinner is coming to an end or a short while after dancing begins so that the venue can slice and serve the desert.  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 always coordinate with your photographer and videographer so they are prepared to capture 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 usually take place right after dinner.

Party Time!
After the cake cutting 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, but 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 so that your special day is perfect!
