On October 1st, I had the pleasure of hosting Stephanie and Josh’s wedding at the Stern Center in Rock Island. We provided uplights, photo booth, DJ services, and the walking on clouds effect. They were both wonderful to work with and the whole event was beautiful. The is a very special wedding because exactly 5 years ago on this date I got married. Stephanie is the hair stylist who cut my hair for my wedding and has continued to do so. My wife and I were honored to be able to celebrate with them and share October 1st as our anniversary.
Congratulations to Steph and Josh!

On August 27th, we had the pleasure of working on Kayla (Williams) and John Ledbetter’s ceremony and reception. I met these two at Ducky’s Formal Wear a while back. I was in getting my tux fitted and they were in looking for groomsmen’s tuxedos. We got to talking about their wedding and we made a great connection. We were able to step in and make their dreams come true. We DJed and emceed the night as well as had our photo booth there and did some awesome lighting with both Bistro and uplights. Our Designer, Alyssa, made Jumer’s look amazing with rustic center pieces, candles, card box, and backdrops while décor floral and wedding party flowers were designed by Kathy Mistic from the Silvis Hy-Vee. It was an amazing night and we are so happy they chose us to be a part of it. Everything came together perfectly!
Congratulations Kayla and John!

Andrea and Marion’s ceremony and reception were held at their private lake house in Alpha, IL. We had so much fun working with them to plan this amazing day. We started with a beautiful ceremony across the lake where they arrived on hayracks and large tractors. The reception building and tent were decorated wit h a rustic feel: hay bales, mason jars, burlap, and lace. The building, measuring 40’x80’ and built for the reception, was used for the dinner buffet, band, and dancing. Along with uplighting the building and the 60’x120’ tent, we also hung bistro lights, brought in a lighted LED dance floor, and set up the “dancing on clouds” effect! Once the band finished, it was time to start the party. After a couple hours of DJing, we turned everyone’s attention to the sky above the lake where we were all treated to a private fireworks show. This was truly a fantastic day.
Congratulations Marion and Andrea!

On June 11th, we had the pleasure of hosting April and Kelby’s state side wedding reception in the Blackwatch Room at Pebble Creek in LeClaire, Iowa. It was a hot day and we had just over 200 guests packed inside. We used up lights to light the whole room. We set up two TVs to play a slide show including pictures from their Dominican Republic wedding and reception. Later in the evening we mixed music videos on the TVs. These guys sure know how to throw a party! I was very excited to be a part of this reception because of how excited April and Kelby were. They were a blast to talk and plan with in the months leading up to their wedding.
Thanks for having us join you for your big day!

On Friday the 13th of May, we had the pleasure of celebrating the marriage of Amanda and Derek. We had a party! They got married at the Watchtower Lodge in Blackhawk State Park. We lit the ceremony room and provided audio while Lewis Knudsen played guitar. The ceremony was packed and we had standing room only. It was such an awesome experience. We then moved into the main room and enjoyed the rest of the evening. We had our photo booth in the lobby and we uplit the room and DJed/emceed the night. For a Friday night, they had a ton of guests! The dance floor was so full, we had to move tables out to make more room. I really enjoyed working with this couple.
Congrats Amanda and Derek!

Groom, Casey, and his groomsmen
We’re back into wedding season so it is getting harder and harder to pick the client of the month because they’re all so awesome! On April 2nd, we had our photo booth out at the iWireless Center for Courtney and Casey Wigant’s wedding. We had a blast! There was a line all night long for the photo booth which we brought props and a memory book for. Needless to say, their memory book was full and it will be a great reminder of how amazing their wedding reception was. We had a ton of big groups in the photo booth including the groom and his groomsmen.
Congratulations Courtney and Casey!

It was a beautiful Winter’s day in February when Joanna Griffin and Ryan Neumann tied the knot! This couple was a blast to work with from day one. Both are so full of joy and excitement. I got a call on January 4th that they had booked the Hotel Blackhawk and were getting married in about 2 months and needed everything. We got together and started the planning immediately!
Our lead designer, Alyssa, along with Lisa Hunt from L’Couture quickly put together a few things and sent it over to Joanna and Ryan. They were glad for all the help and wanted to make this a night to remember; and we did just that. The Gold Room was elegantly decorated and lit with our uplights. We draped off the stairs going to the dance floor and moved it to the center of the room. We also DJ’d the evening, keeping the dance floor full and hoppin’ for the night.
Best Wishes to you two!

We had the opportunity to work with Friendship Manor again this year for their Holiday Gala. We brought our photo booth and it was a huge hit. I had a line waiting at the booth all night, with many people going through more than once! We’ve been doing business with Friendship Manor for a few years and, as usual, they were great to work with. They like to change their party up every year and that’s something we specialize in. No one wants to have the same boring holiday party year after year and we make sure that doesn’t happen. Thank you to Terry Iams for the business and we look forward to next year’s party!
