Ballroom Style Wedding Celebration

It was the first of the month, September 2012. DJ Dominick and MSE were in the house to provide a killer party for Eric & Nina Sullivan’s wedding celebration. Their event started on the beach with live entertainment performing for their ceremony and cocktail hour. The grand ballroom at the Marco Island Marriott was decked out with stunning chairs from a rental company, round tables with votive/flower style centerpieces. The sweetheart table was front and center, along with the wedding cake nearby. We were setup on a stage overlooking the ballroom and the huge dance floor. The wedding coordinator for the evening was Mark Williams, and everything was in place. Our setup included intelligent “totem” style lighting flooding the dance floor. It also served as a first dance spotlight, and the sweetheart table spot. Eric & Nina added the up lighting enhancement in a “amber” color which we placed around the room. When the lights went down, the glow of the up lighting and candles created a romantic atmosphere that said “a night for love, but get ready to party!”. Their introduction was fun and upbeat and included numerous songs for the bridal party and a grand entrance for the bride & groom where the bridal party joined them on the dance floor to take the introduction to the next level. Throughout the introduction, the intelligent lights were doing a white spot scan all around the ballroom to create the buzz of something big happening. Dinner was plated, and we couldn’t get the dance floor opened fast enough. The party started immediately after dinner, and went right through the end of the night.

Their itinerary included the following:
First Dance
Bride/Father dance
Groom/Mother dance
Open dancing
