MEGAN & TONY'S ELCONA COUNTRY CLUB WEDDING | DJ

MEGAN & TONY'S ELCONA COUNTRY CLUB WEDDING | DJ

Elcona Country Club is at the foot of the Bristol Hills and has a beautiful club house ballroom that overlooks the 18th green and 10th tee. The weather on this Saturday was exactly what you’d hope for with a wedding in early October - sunny skies, slight breeze and a temperature that wasn't too hot nor too cold.. And DANG, did this couple get the perfect combination of both! 

Megan and Tony chose the Platinum entertainment package for their wedding reception based on both a recommendation from friends, and having grown up listening to Sticky Boots on the radio.  Couples like that normally have a good idea of what the Sticky Boots experience is like and know how to have a good time, and as soon as we met Megan and Tony, we knew for certain this was going to be a super-fun wedding!

21ST NIGHT OF SEPTEMBER WEDDING FOR CARRIE & NICK | DJ

21ST NIGHT OF SEPTEMBER WEDDING FOR CARRIE & NICK | DJ

Just off the shores of Lake Wawasee on 27 acres of forested land in Syracuse, Oakwood Resort provides a stunning backdrop for almost any type of event. The only type of event it's not good for is one that doesn't want beautiful lake views, well-manicured grounds or a helpful staff to make sure the event goes off without a hitch. Those events may be out there, but we have yet to find one - ha!

We met Carrie and Nick via Facetime for their initial consultation. We knew that they were going to be a great couple to work with for a lot of reasons. Not only were they fun, they also became aware of The Music Place from their support and participation of the Wawasee Kiwanis Trivia Fundraiser we are a part of every year.

JENNI & BRIAN'S CEREMONY AND RECEPTION AT ST. JOE FARM, GRANGER | DJ, CEREMONY

JENNI & BRIAN'S CEREMONY AND RECEPTION AT ST. JOE FARM, GRANGER | DJ, CEREMONY

Jenni and Brian were married in the stables on St. Joe Farm on a late-September Saturday. The weather was a balmy 80-degrees, not something that you expect on a Saturday in September in Northern Indiana. Guests were able to cool off a bit with a cocktail hour inside the Event Barn while Jenni and Brian were getting after-ceremony photos taken by their photographer, Jessica Burns of JB Photography.

The reception officially kicked off with a unique timeline. After DJ Iceberg hosted the Grand Entrance, introducing the individual members of the bridal parties, Jenni danced with her dad, Bryan. As the dance finished, Bryan passed Jenni’s hand to another Brian, her new husband, for their first dance as husband and wife. The handoff from Father to Groom was something important to Jenni and her family, and it’s unique touches like these that we love to see!

Located along the Historical Lincoln Highway, you'll find the quaint town of Bourbon. For many years, this small town has been home to Back Forty Sporting Clays, a 40-acres haven for shotgun shooting enthusiasts, but their Banquet Hall is a haven for couples who want a private wooded setting for their wedding ceremony and reception. In a nutshell, the Back Forty is pure late-summer bliss and it's exactly the setting that Skylar and Ryan wanted for their special day.

Industrial buildings are super trendy right now. Exposed loft ceilings with Edison light-bulbs combined with stained concrete floors create the perfect canvas for a truly unique wedding reception.

In South Bend, Indiana, The Brick has all these features and so (so!) much more.

When you live in the Midwest, we tend to take our big red barns, farming fields and winding roads for granted and guess what ... Elkhart County, Indiana is filled with these scenic vistas! People from all over the country visit this area for our rich Amish culture (and those delicious Amish meals).

Rock Run Creek Barn has all of those make-our-Midwestern-hearts-swell amenities, it's an 1850’s restored barn after all! But it's also air conditioned in the summer, heated in the winter and features inside restrooms ... oh, and it's handicap accessible! Such a big WIN!
