Woodward Reception- 11/23/13- The Vault- Wedding DJ- Columbus, Ohio

December 28, 2013

 
Catching up today on some events from earlier this year in which I hadn’t had a chance to post photos.  On Saturday 11/23/13, I provided a ceremony sound system and reception DJ entertainment for the new Mr. & Mrs. Steve Woodward!  Their reception was held at The Vault in Columbus, Ohio.
 
The Vault is located in downtown Columbus, Ohio and served as an actual bank from 1965 until 2002.  In late 2002, renovations took place to create one of the most unique wedding venues in all of Columbus.  A huge vault serves as the bar/beverage area while a 100 year-old chandelier hangs from the ceiling to accent the marble floors and create a spectacular looking wedding venue.
 
Steve & Roxanne celebrated their ceremony and reception with over 150 of their close family and friends.  After the ceremony, guests made their way inside the large vault to visit the bar and took advantage of the huge balcony above the vault that overlooked the entire reception hall.
 
This reception for Steve & Roxanne was definitely one to remember for 2013! Guests packed the dance floor the entire evening right up until the bouquet & garter toss took place from the balcony down to the dance floor area late in the evening.  The catering staff even joined the party and danced with the guests to a few classic 90’s dance tracks.
 
Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Steve Woodward!

December 15, 2013

 
On Saturday 12/14/13, I provided DJ entertainment for the new Mr.  & Mrs. Sean Weisenauer! Their reception was held at The Elks Lodge in Upper Sandusky, Ohio.
 
The Upper Sandusky Elks Lodge is located just outside downtown and is a great venue to host a wedding reception.  The second floor events area was very open and spacious and featured a huge dance floor and bar area.  There were also two large bay windows behind the head table, which added a nice touch and made for a great view once the snow started falling again later in the evening.
 
The weather was rough most of the day, but guests filed in as Sean & Katie celebrated their wedding with over 250 of their close family and friends.  Greenbriar of Carey, Ohio, provided catering services for the event.
 
The guests had a lot of requests and danced until the late night hours.  This was my last wedding reception of 2013 and it was a great way to end the winter wedding season.  Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Sean Weisenauer!

It was a blast to be a part of this special day for AJ & Paige.  It was very nice to see a lot of college friends that I hadn’t seen since graduation back in 2004/2005.  This event was definitely one to remember!  Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. AJ Kissh!

Simon Reception- 8/24/13- Heritage Golf Club- Hilliard, Ohio

August 25, 2013

 
After spending time in early August providing DJ services for various other special events around Central Ohio, it was time to get back into the heat of the busy wedding season.  On Saturday 8/24/13, I provided MC services and DJ entertainment for the new Mr.  & Mrs. Anthony Simon!  Their reception was held at Heritage Golf Club in Hilliard, Ohio.  Heritage Golf Club is a private course located just outside downtown Hilliard.
 
The cocktail hour took place on a large back patio area that overlooks the golf course.  As guests arrived, they were treated to a live acoustic guitarist for entertainment.  The reception took place inside the main clubhouse area which turned out to be a very elegant and unique facility.   Heritage Golf Club provided most all of the decorations and catering services for the event.
 
The reception for Anthony & Ashley was extremely fun and definitely one to remember.  Some crowds are eager and just love to dance.  As a DJ, this is something that’s very noticeable early on during a reception.  The dance floor was busy from the first song to the last, and the guests had a lot of excellent requests.   Similar to concert, as the last song ended the entire dance floor turned and started to chant “one more song.”  I somewhat expected this ………..and didn’t let them down.

All Occasions is one of top venues in the area and a perfect choice for wedding receptions. The staff is outstanding and their catering services are top notch.
 
I had a great time providing DJ entertainment for William and Brittany.   Everyone was extremely nice and the dance floor was filled the entire night!   After the last song, the guests filed outside to join the bride and groom in launching sky lanterns into the air. Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. William Hause!

Hughes Reception- 7/12/13- The Pinnacle Golf Club- Columbus Wedding DJ- Grove City, Ohio

July 13, 2013

 
On Friday 7/12/13, I provided a ceremony sound system, MC services, and DJ entertainment for the new Mr. & Mrs. Chris Hughes!  Their reception was held at the Pinnacle Golf Club in Grove City, Ohio.
 
The Pinnacle Golf Club was yet another first time stop for me and I was amazed by the quality of both the golf course and the reception facility.  The reception location was extremely nice and the ceremony was held on a grassy in-set area just outside the reception hall.  Guests mingled after the ceremony when the space was transitioned for the cocktail hour.
 
This set-up was a perfect application for my wireless speaker systems.  I was able to broadcast a wireless signal from my main console located inside the reception hall to the (2) remote speakers located outside for the ceremony and cocktail hour.
 
Chris and Sarah were a laid back and extremely fun couple.  I worked with them in the months leading up to their reception to not only plan their ceremony and reception music, but to create a custom 1st dance mix.  The mix consisted of about 14 tracks edited to create a really fun dance set.  Their guests went crazy and their hard work practicing the dance mix paid off!  Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Chris Hughes!

Guests were treated to 5 star catering services, a full-service bar, and even a quick photo opportunity with a few showgirls before entering the reception.
 
It was great to be a part of the first wedding reception held at the Hollywood Casino. The playlist was a good mix of all types of music and the guests packed the dance floor the entire night. Ryan & Tahnee are an extremely nice couple and I really enjoyed working with them to help create a night they will always remember.

I was very impressed and Glennross did an excellent job.
 
The rough weather held off long just enough for David & Stephanie to exchange their vows, greet their guests, and take a few photos out on the golf course. Once the formal events were complete and the dancing started, it never stopped! This event was a blast and a definite night to remember for the new bride and groom. Congrats David & Stephanie!

Redman Reception- 3/30/13- North Bank Park- Columbus, Ohio

April 1, 2013

 
Last weekend (3/30/13) I had an excellent time providing DJ entertainment and uplighting services for the new Mr. & Mrs. Brandon Redman.  Kendra and Brandon were married earlier this year out of state but wanted to have a local reception in Columbus for their family and friends.  They chose an excellent facility to host their reception in North Bank Park.
 
North Bank Park is located along the Scioto River in downtown Columbus, just north of downtown and in front of the Arena and Pen West Districts.  The building features glass ceilings and walls along with a large patio and park area.  The view of downtown is excellent and once the sun sets the room really looks great and creates a nice open atmosphere.
 
This was actually my first event at North Bank Park and I hope to be fortunate enough to go back sometime in the near future.  Congrats to Brandon & Kendra!

Gracely Reception- 2/2/13- Palace Theatre- Marion, Ohio

March 10, 2013

 

The Palace Theatre in Marion, Ohio is becoming a very popular  wedding venue in the Marion area.  A few years ago, the May Pavilion was added to the theatre to attract weddings, school dances, corporate events, banquets, or any other special event.  The Pavilion is a very unique multi-level facility within the Palace which connects directly to the actual theatre, where some couples choose to have their wedding ceremony.
 
On February 2, 2013 I was fortunate to DJ the wedding reception of the new Mr. & Mrs. Will Gracely! Both their ceremony and reception were held at the Palace and I provided reception DJ services, uplighting, and a wireless speaker system for their cocktail hour.  It was a great way to start off 2013 and the evening turned out to be a fun, successful, and memorable event.
 
Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Will Gracely!
