My forte is the Wedding Ceremony And Receptions. This is where I consider myself THE BEST! I co-ordinate all aspects of the reception with everyone you have contracted for their services. If the MC or DJ on Duty doesn’t come close to this when you speak with them, then call me @ 912-844-5751.
What sets myself apart from my ‘competition’ is that I pay close attention to detail. I want your event to be ‘what YOU want it to be’ NOT what I THINK it should be’.
I make sure that I have all of the appropriate requested music. My system is loud enough for people to dance to and enjoy but not blasting out those who want to sit at nearby tables and carry on a conversation without having to leave the room.
Here’s just one example: I will come to you both and suggest we do theÂ cake cutting andÂ toast event in about 10 minutes or so. This way, you are aware of what is about to happen in case you need to freshen up or whatever. Then I go to the photographer and let them know what is about to take place. I’ll ask how many exposures theyÂ have on their current roll of film (some still use film for b&w). If it’s less than 5, I ask them to shoot them now and reload with a fresh roll of film. We’re ready to proceed.
Now on to the room captain or caterer at the reception venue. I inform them what is about to happen but notice that the couple is having a special toast. Their goblets are on the table but no champagne and the knife is not on the cake table along with at least one plate and no napkins.
Once everything is in place, ONLY THEN will I announce to the guests what is getting ready to take place. I inform the guests to please secure a beverage now. Of course, being in the South, ANY beverage will do. Water, tea, coffee, soft drink .. so as not to offend those who are non-drinkers. Now this event will take place without any problems.
I do this for ALL aspects of the reception. Your Introduction, Receiving Line, Dance Segment, Cake Cutting, Toast, Garter and Bouquet Toss, Staged Exit (if needed) and other elements youâ€™d like to add to YOUR SPECIAL DAY!
I make it a point to meet with all couples in person if possible (since 83% of my couples are destination weddings from out-of-state) as soon as they are ready to begin planning the actual reception. We’ll meet in public to discuss the music, the elements that are really needed, special events that would mean so much to them and the pitfalls to avoid. I’ll also offer ways to not only make your big day fun, enjoyable and memorable for the both of you but everyone in attendance. I will give you specificÂ questions to ask of your contracted vendors AT LEAST ONE WEEK BEFORE THE BIG DAY to avoid any extra charges. WHY? Because I’m looking out for you AND your wallet.
Together, we’ll decide on the music for the reception. Keep in mind that the reception is a dignified event and only appropriate music should be played throughout. I pride myself on providing the appropriate music and executing only tasteful events throughout the wedding reception. The reception is designed to be enjoyed by all in a fun, entertaining and wholesome environment with guests ranging in ages from 8 to 90+. I WILL NOT PLAY ANY OFFENSIVE SONGS. Some songs are meant for the bachelor and bachelorette parties. That’s fine for those events but NOT WEDDING RECEPTIONS!
