On July 21, 2018 we were blessed with the honor to be a small part in the wedding of Laura & Dan Paradise. The Chocksett Inn in Sterling, MA is a beautiful location with a gorgeous ballroom and lounge area for cocktails. We provided three systems for Laura & Dan.
Outside we provided a powered ceremony system with a lapel microphone worn by the officiant. Laura and Dan wanted to use instrumentals of some of their favorite “geek” music for their prelude and their list of music looked like this:
Prelude: Vitamin String Quartet Geek Wedding Selections
Processional: Sleeping At Last – I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)
Bridal March: Haley Reinhart – Can’t Help Falling in Love
Recessional: Israel Kamakawiwoʻole – Somewhere Over the Rainbow
The guests were lead into The Chocksett Inn for horderves and drinks at the open bar. The lounge, of The Chocksett, is a very long L shaped room that allows guests to spread out for the length of the ballroom. We provided a satellite system that played some the greatest jazz hits from Duke Ellington, Sammy Davis Jr., and Glen Miller.
For the reception we provided wireless, smart, uplighting for the entire ballroom. A total of 29 lights were used and were matched to the wedding colors Laura and Dan chose. We also provided a monogram/gobo above the sweetheart table which is an elegant way to tie a, beautifully decorated, room together. The crowd at the reception was not your typical mixed age group – we had to stick with the 70’s and 80’s to keep the floor moving… some 60’s Beach Boys were needed, too. All in all the dance floor was hopping and the decorations were popping as the wireless uplights changed colors in conjunction with the tunes.
Laura Said it best:
“Booking Chris as the DJ for our wedding was the best decision we could have made. From the planning, to the ceremony, and straight through the reception Chris was attentive and accommodating. On top of the standard DJ services, Chris provided stunning uplighting and a custom monogram that truly brought the ballroom to life. He assisted in coordinating a reception timeline that suited our needs and worked with us throughout the evening to ensure our guests of all ages would dance the night away!”
