Get ready to get your dancing shoes on. Sarah & Brandon was previously married but today decided to have a post wedding celebration which had the small group of friends and family dancing the night away to different and all types of tunes. 

The theming was unlike any other theme I ever had seen… a “movie” style theme which featured popcorn and candy for guest favors. Pretty neat if you ask me. We also didn’t have a traditional cake per say but something rather sweet but for the life of me can’t remember what it was exactly called … but it was good. Also we didn’t have a traditional reception per say with a wedding party or all the odds and ends but something simple and relaxed. I Introduced our couple, they had their dance and also invited up parents to join in. All in all a good celebration with lots of fun. Check out the video and pictures below.

Ray & Kayla’s New Years Eve Wedding | The Caldwell Consistory | Bloomsburg, PA https://mixmasterdjservices.com/2017/07/31/ray-kaylas-new-years-eve-wedding-the-caldwell-consistory-bloomsburg-pa/ Tue, 01 Aug 2017 00:10:06 +0000 https://mixmasterdjservices.com/?p=6744

 

What happens when you take an awesome couple who are getting married and add it to New Year’s Eve? Well one epic celebration of course! If I had to give this wedding one word to describe it, it would be: Lit. That’s right this wedding was on fire. It packed a punch and was seriously a blast. 

First off since it was a New Year’s Eve wedding, we didn’t start until later in the evening. The ceremony would be around 5pm with cocktail hour and dinner following… Not your typical time for a wedding but we lasted well into the night.. past midnight when we brought in the new year 2017. So besides celebrating the love and happiness of Ray & Kayla, we also celebrated by taking 2016 out in style and welcoming in 2017 with some class.

Ray & Kayla were a fun couple to work with. We not only did the reception but also provided audio for the wedding ceremony which would take place up in the auditorium, a photobooth (which by the way got super busy and messy), shadow grand entrance for all the wedding party, confetti at midnight, and a live stream of Time Square in New York CIty…. who can you say that can pull all of this off? Not to mention we had a packed dance floor all throughout the night. I had so much “great” footage that I broke it down into 3 videos which can be viewed below. Also take some time to look at a few pictures I was able to capture. Thanks Ray & Kayla for having me apart of your special day. Much Love & Happiness to you both.

Danielle & Alberto | The Caldwell Consistory | Bloomsburg, PA https://mixmasterdjservices.com/2017/07/20/danielle-alberto-the-caldwell-consistory-bloomsburg-pa/ Thu, 20 Jul 2017 16:31:26 +0000 https://mixmasterdjservices.com/?p=6729

What a fun wedding this turned out to be. Not only that but what an amazing and cute couple I had the pleasure of working with. Danielle & Alberto went for a winter wedding in the middle of December located at The Caldwell Consistory in Bloomsburg, PA. We held both the ceremony + reception in the same location. 

The ceremony was held in the back ballroom in which we provided audio for with music. As for the reception, we did not provide music for the cocktail hour, Instead our couple had a mariachi band which was absolutely different but absolutely fabulous… they even had Alberto’s dad singing along. Originally we was going to do the wedding party introductions but quickly changed it last minute that I would introduce just our bride and groom; Alberto & Danielle.

The first dance was also very different, but I feel the timing of it and the mood was very appropriate… It wasn’t your typical slow dance but instead more upbeat. Our couple danced to Mariah Carey’s- All I want for Christmas is you.

A lot of other fun things happened throughout the night. A lot of dancing and different ideas and twists on things such as your bouquet and garter. Watch the video recap below to re-live their day.

John & Karrie | The Barn At Boones Dam | Bloomsburg, PA https://mixmasterdjservices.com/2017/06/20/john-karrie-the-barn-at-boones-dam-bloomsburg-pa/ Tue, 20 Jun 2017 18:51:56 +0000 https://mixmasterdjservices.com/?p=6692

 

What’s better than a wedding? How about a wedding during the Christmas season? where everything is so warm, and beautifully decorated for the season. Not to mention we was also in a barn! This is exactly how John & Karrie’s wedding was. A warm yet very nicely done wedding that took place at The Barn at Boones Dam in Bloomsburg, PA. 

Now I have a secret to tell you… I have a love/hate relationship with this venue, it’s easily not one of my favorite venues due to the setup restraints they place upon the DJ. I love however how beautiful it can be for a wedding and the backdrop it provides. I now must warn you that I told John & Karrie when they hired me I prefer to work with an assistant when working this venue and they agreed it would be in our best interest, so this is when I brought along my assistant Sean who would help run audio and controls while I was down on the floor MCing.

John & Karrie provided their own photobooth (not ours) but nonetheless it was a fun experience for all in attendance. We also did a fun activity to give guests the chance to win their right to go to the buffet line and also did a “newlywed” style game where we sat our couple back to back as they answered the questions that best fit. We had some fun with guest dancing and enjoying the night with our couple. Check out video and pictures below.

Brian & Hannah | Mountain Valley Golf Course | Barnesville, PA https://mixmasterdjservices.com/2017/06/20/brian-hannah-mountain-valley-golf-course-barnesville-pa/ Tue, 20 Jun 2017 16:47:35 +0000 https://mixmasterdjservices.com/?p=6689

Traveling, It’s what we sometime have to do. Both near and far. For Brian & Hannah we traveled to the beautiful Mountain Valley Golf Course located in Barnesville, PA (and for those of you who don’t know where that is, It’s just below Hazleton, PA) We provided DJ & MC along with Uplighting, Ceremony Audio, and a cute customized monogram. 

Not all weddings we do are local, and not all weddings we do are “sunshiny and warm” in fact we traveled just over a hour and half to be with Brian & Hannah today and it also wasn’t the best of weather either… in fact I remember it was kind of cold, windy, and if I remember correctly rainy… But oh no that didn’t stop us from having a good time. Brian & Hannah ended up having their wedding ceremony right inside the ballroom where their reception would take place as the weather didn’t want to cooperate with us. This goes to show you that you should ALWAYS have a backup plan and this is exactly what we ended up using, but it turned out to be BEAUTIFUL.

After the wedding ceremony we plugged in our purple uplighting, and customized monogram that Hannah requested we use “dog prints” to represent their dogs. (come on they are family too… just furry) A lot of close family and friends came to celebrate and dance the night away with this awesome couple. For the uplighting we also even “uplit” the cake or should I said pin-spotted it to make it really stand out. We can do this for just about any wedding. It added warmth to what was a beautiful day for this couple. Check out some photos and video below.

Scott & Jess | Rozenberg Farm | Jersey Shore, PA https://mixmasterdjservices.com/2017/05/16/scott-jess-rozenberg-farm-jersey-shore-pa/ Tue, 16 May 2017 23:47:13 +0000 https://mixmasterdjservices.com/?p=6662

On a beautiful sunny fall day Scott & Jess got married. Everything took place at on private property known as Rozenberg Farm in Jersey Shore, PA 

Scott & Jess meant though Jess’s work at the time and have known each other for 9 years and finally today they got married. It was a beautiful fall day so you know we had some nice fall decor and colors. The ceremony was held right directly outside of the barn which had another storage type barn as a backdrop. Hey Bails served as seats for guest to sit on while all the music and audio was provided by myself.

For the reception Scott & Jess had a wooden bench that guest would sign and it served as their “guestbook” a pretty neat idea if you ask me. We had their 1st dance, dinner, and all the normal stuff like a dollar dance and even dusted off some old classics and brought people up to dance to the macarena. What a great time and a great couple. Congratulations Scott & Jess. Pictures & video below.

Dan & Patty | Lime Ridge Community Center | Bloomsburg, PA https://mixmasterdjservices.com/2017/04/15/dan-patty-lime-ridge-community-center-bloomsburg-pa/ Sat, 15 Apr 2017 17:21:37 +0000 https://mixmasterdjservices.com/?p=6605

Would you believe me if I told you that this couple meant through walmart? How about if I told you they both have the same last names (before even getting married.. and no they wasn’t related.. lol) Well its true! Now Dan & Patty choose to have their wedding way before ever having reception. In fact they held off on ever having a reception until October. This is when Dan & Patty contacted me saying they were already married but wanted to have a reception celebration. A small reception none the less but with a big boom. 

When I say small reception, I mean it was a group of close friends and family, not your typical 120+ guests count… and while there also was not a lot of dancing, the reception still had a big effect a big boom if you’d like to say. Dan & Patty still wanted to have that special reception so they hired us to provide a few more things than just “music” we came out with dancing on the clouds, uplighting, and the photobooth!

The photobooth was a big success. We had guests using it all throughout the afternoon. (Yes afternoon as this reception was not your typical evening affair) Actually if you want to be quite honest everything was different about this reception. The theme was heavily put together to represent a “beach theme” from the colors to the decor. We brought out the blue uplights, had a beach themed background for the photobooth prints, and Dan even wore shorts with a nice beachy themed shirt. Did i mention this reception took place in October? forget about all the fall colors we want summer to never go away.

Dan & Patty didn’t have a traditional wedding party, instead I just introduced them as a couple. They still had a first dance which took place “on the clouds” They also did parent dances, cutting of the cake, and a bouquet and garter ceremony. (The reason I call it ceremony is because they didn’t do a toss) instead they did an anniversary dance and the couple who were together the longest got to keep the bouquet and garter as a gift.

Matt & Jesse’s Wedding | The Elks Club | Lock Haven, PA https://mixmasterdjservices.com/2017/04/13/matt-jesses-wedding-the-elks-club-lock-haven-pa/ Thu, 13 Apr 2017 18:22:52 +0000 https://mixmasterdjservices.com/?p=6578

 

Matt & Jesse’s meant at a young football game that their sons played at and started dating. It was a few years into their relationship that Matt would ask Jesse to marry him. I’m not sure exactly how Jesse found me, but I’m glad I she did and I was able to provide services not only for her and Matt’s reception, but also provide music and audio for their ceremony at a separate location. 

Jesse being in the wedding industry herself as a photographer had a basic understanding of how everything would be planned out way beforehand. At first I was only to provide services for the reception but soon was asked to also do the music and audio for their ceremony which was held at The Durrwachter Alumni Conference Center. The reception would take place at The Lock Haven Elks Club where we would have the company of some wonderful family and friends.

Music ranged from old to new and we had everyone dancing and having a good time. From the first dance to the last it was a night to remember and celebrate. Thanks to Matt & Jesse for having me apart of their special day! Some photos and video below.

Scott & Jean’s Wedding | The Barn At Hidden Acres | Bloomsburg, PA https://mixmasterdjservices.com/2017/04/09/scott-jeans-wedding-the-barn-at-hidden-acres-bloomsburg-pa/ Sun, 09 Apr 2017 15:50:12 +0000 https://mixmasterdjservices.com/?p=6560

It was a beautiful late September Saturday afternoon when Scott & Jean tied the knot at the beautiful Barn At Hidden Acres located in Bloomsburg, PA high up on the mountain. Scott & Jean are not your typical “young and in love” couple.. they are a older couple but one thing for sure is that their love shined bright today. 

The ceremony would take place outdoors directly outside of the barn over in the field near the pine trees. This made for a awesome backdrop and of course you know we provided all the music and sound for the ceremony. The cocktail hour would also take place outside of the barn where I also had the opportunity to chat with some of the guest and strike up some good conversations. One thing for sure is that Jean & Scott have a great group of family and friends.

We did things a little bit different from what you may be used to, we actually held a wedding party dance, and Jean not only danced with her father but also had her mother (whom is wheelchair bound) come to the dance floor to share a special dance with her. The love you felt between everyone today was so sweet. Thanks for allowing me to share in your special day. Below are some photos and video.

Chad & Shelly | Wynding Brook Golf Club | Milton, PA https://mixmasterdjservices.com/2017/03/29/chad-shelly-wynding-brook-golf-club-milton-pa/ Wed, 29 Mar 2017 14:48:28 +0000 https://mixmasterdjservices.com/?p=6535

Chad & Shelly’s wedding was a day that was filled with lots of love, fun, dancing and customization. I was able to work with the couple to customize different things within their timeline and make it about them, A personal connection. 

For the wedding party we did “teams” …. now what are teams you may ask? Rather than introducing the wedding party as couples I introduced them separately and also gave a little bio about each one so for Chad’s groomsmen I said representing team Chad our groom then introduced them. I also did the same with Shelly’s side. We had lots of dancing from an anniversary dance, to something a tad bit different for your bouquet and garter.

For the Bouquet and Garter we had Shelly stand in the middle of the dance floor and have all the ladies create a big circle around here. We then played music as the ladies went in a circle one way while Shelly went and spun the opposite way… all while being blindfolded. When the music had stopped, whomever Shelly was facing received the bouquet. This is just a tad bit different from what you may normally see such as the toss.

Now for Chad, we kept it traditional with a garter toss however we put a twist on it. I had Chad & Shelly sign a small nerf type football with their names and wedding date. I would then put the garter around the football and Chad would use this for his garter toss. Neat idea right?

All in all it was a good night, with good people and good food. Thanks Chad & Shelly for letting me celebrate with you. Check out the pictures and video below.
