Boston DJ company offers wedding planning ideas for the Red Sox fan

If you’re a Red Sox fan and Fenway Park is out of your budget or logistically impossible for your wedding, there are some other ways to incorporate your favorite team into your big day.

Option 1: Consider hiring Red Sox announcer Carl Beane to introduce your wedding party. He’s available for hire provided it’s off season, the Sox aren’t playing,  or the team is playing an away game. [ continue reading ]

Liz & Mike Watts – 10...

This Indian Pond reception was fun from the start.  Mike & Liz entered the room to thunderous applause as Young M.C.’s “Bust a Move” set the groove. Their first dance was to Ray LaMontagne’s break out hit “You are the Best Thing”. The guests were ready and the new Mr. & Mrs. Watts didn’t disappoint. They didn’t waste an inch of the dance floor.

Jeff & Holly's Andover Country Club Reception

Above you’ll see the fun, fall-themed, sign in board from Jeff & Holly’s reception at Andover Country Club. Guests were asked to make a finger print “leaf” with the various fall colored ink stamping pads. The “leaf” would serve as the spot for a signature. I particularly liked the carved heart & initials J&H on the tree as well as the available & handy wet naps.

In the picture above you’ll also see Holly & her girls as well as Jeff & Holly having their first dance. Their song choice was one I had never heard,  “Words can not Describe” by Mirah, but liked a lot.   Give it a listen – I attached the link on Itunes. It had a very 30’s, 40’s speak easy like sound.

I also loved how Jeff and Holly included the kids in the reception. They were definitely a big part of the dance party as you’ll see below.  The photo of the 4 boys was unforgettable. I hope someone put it on youtube!! The boys were in the middle of the circle poppin’,  lockin’ & breakin’.

And another fall themed idea… Below you’ll see the escort cards is a forest of trees. The different tables each had a tree type as an identifier. Great idea Holly!!

Seating/Escort Cards Mosaic

As dj at thousands of events, I’ve seen lots of fun ways to present seating/escort cards at weddings. I snapped the photo below at Dave & Liz Gogoi’s Wollaston Golf Club wedding reception.  Basically each of the escort cards had part of an image printed on it. When placed together on the seating board they formed the larger image shown in the photo. To keep the image visible after the cards were removed, a duplicate image was printed beneath. Sadly the photo is from my phone. I wish the resolution was better but I think you can get the idea.

Check back for more images from Liz & Dave’s wedding. Wollaston Golf Club is a fantastic venue in Milton, MA (about 10 miles south of Boston). It was my first time playing there but I hope to be back again soon. I really enjoyed it!!

Let me know if one makes it onto your playlist.

Fairmont Copley Plaza – Ed...

Where: Fairmont Copley Plaza
When: 10-2-2012
Who: Ed & Amanda Randles

The reception was set in the Oval room of the Fairmont Copley Plaza. If you’ve ever been, you know the room is beautiful. But without a doubt the uplighting, monogram and colored wash provided by Boston Uplights really made the space fantastic!! Music for the cocktail reception was provided by Felice Pomeranz of the Gilded harps. Here are a few pictures of the room and the fun after I got involved. 🙂

Scituate Harbor Yacht Club

I’ve worked weddings in just about every room on the South Shore but 9/24 was my first at the Scituate Country Club. I loved it and hope to be back soon!! The space has a large, open and airy dining room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beautiful & scenic Scituate Harbor. For warmer months, there is a 40′ x 60′ tent with equally amazing water views. Catering for events is deliciously prepared by Mark & Julie Ellis and their company the Chef’s Table.

Yuri & Sarah Valerio were the guests of honor and just wonderful to work for. You can see from the pictures below that there was no shortage of dancing & fun. In addition to the music, we also provided the paper hanging lanterns for the tent. The pictures are evidence of the success but these words from the Bride & Groom express spell it out. “I just wanted to say thank you for doing such an amazing job at the wedding. We had the best time and everyone can’t stop raving about what a great job you did. The day was perfect and your hard work played a major role in that. Also, a lot of people have commented on how great the lanterns looked!” – Sarah & Yuri

Paper Hanging Lanterns

If you’ve been following this blog you or are a client of 5 Star Events, you probably know that we offer amazing event lighting through our sister company Creative Uplighting. You also may know that we’ve been working on a revolutionary new way to light paper hanging lanterns. Well our lantern light is now a reality and we’ve been using it in the field. The images below are of fall themed lanterns at the Commanders Mansion of Watertown. We are so pleased with the result and are excited to bring these lanterns to more and more weddings this coming year!!

Danny & Sandy – Commo...

OK I am so backed up with pictures. I am doing my best to put them up whenever I have a chance. These pics are from my wedding this past Friday (10/14/11), at Topsfield Commons. The ride was long – 2.5 hrs in the car, and the load in was rough – through the kitchen and up the stairs, but it was well worth it. Check out the pics. Danny & Sandy’s wedding was a blast!!

Crowd Surfing!!

The party was non-stop from the first dance to the last – “(I’m gonna be) 500 Miles” by the Proclaimers. There were Irish songs, a polka and lots of great party music. Check out Sandy crowd surfing!!

Everyone was included, young and old – and all took part. This party was even more fun than the pictures show. 🙂

I wish I could post all the images here. I have so many good ones!! It was honestly tough to choose. Check back for more updates. I still have to post my Indian Pond Country Club wedding on Saturday.
