It was a pleasure working with Kevin and Lisa on their wedding. The lovely couple hosted it at the Chevy Chase Country Club in Wheeling, IL. It was a mild Summer day and the view of the golf course from the clubhouse was amazing. The banquet room was nicely lit from the natural sunlight as we were setting up.
We introduced the couple to “Sugar” by Maroon 5 followed by their cake cutting to “Better Together” by Jack Johnson, one of my favorite acoustic tracks! Their first dance was extra special, done to a live rendition of Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” covered by several of their friends composed of a singer, guitarist and percussionist.
The lights remained dim as it was time to open the dance floor, which meant it was time to use our new lighting software. Our new software allows for more custom and precise control of our uplights enabling us to use effects and change colors instantly. Charles and I enjoyed playing with different light settings as we were DJing, which really added some energy to the room, our DJ booth and our speaker stands.
I also have to commend the banquet staff and their management for their professionalism, great service and cooperation that night. It makes our job so much easier when the staff communicates with us well and knows what they’re doing, which made the great night even better.
Thanks to Kevin and Lisa for having us! We wish you the best!
