Middlebury couple Alyssa and Dominic wanted a very elegant look for their early afternoon Elkhart wedding reception with an intimate guest list of about 70 family and close friends. They chose the stunning Crystal Ballroom at the Lerner Theatre as their venue and our Gold wedding package as the perfect complement to their plans.
Working alongside Steve and Ashley from Point Photo Design of Goshen, DJ Iceberg served as master of ceremonies for the event facilitating the grand entrance, announcement of the formal plated meal and cake cutting traditions. The celebration also included a unique “bear toss” in place of the traditional bouquet and garter tosses which involved tossing a stuffed bear to the many children in attendance. Later, DJ Iceberg created the perfect soundtrack to the northern Indiana afternoon reception which included extremely contemporary music choices from current hip-hop and R&B artists such as Rihanna, Beyonce, Usher, Drake, Bruno Mars, and Macklemore.
Following the reception, the newlyweds were extremely happy with the wedding entertainment and according to Alyssa, “everyone thoroughly enjoyed Jeff and at that at the end I had asked him to stay an extra half hour…” Jeff had a blast as well and was honored to be a part of such a close knit group’s celebration.
