Brittany and Nate planned a BIG reception with nearly 300 guests, and when you go big, you can’t skimp on the venue, the food, or the entertainment. For that reason, this couple made wise choices with the entire Crystal Ballroom at the Lerner Theatre in Elkhart, IN along with our Platinum wedding package with DJ Sticky Boots as their Elkhart area wedding DJ and master of ceremonies.
After a lovely cocktail hour to the sounds of Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble, guests were treated to one of our signature custom grand entrances with Sticky Boots on the mic as all 16 members of the bridal party entered the party with tons of energy complete with custom edited music samples that fit each pair’s unique personalities and booming through the powerful RCF nightclub style sound system.
After a tasty three course plated dinner and toasts, guests enjoyed multimedia photo montages on the ballroom’s three integrated video screens while the couple danced with their parents. The Elkhart County wedding DJ also facilitated the Britt and Nate’s choice of a “Dollar Dash”. Though not an activity we typically do at receptions, with a fun group of guests like these, the action of the bride and groom running table to table in competition with each other can be quite entertaining. Nate won the Dash big-time by the way, besting Brittany by over $200!
With the special dances, Dash, and tosses complete the dance floor was open for the rest of the evening and Sticky Boots rocked friends and family with a modern mix of fresh new music with party classics for a full 3 hours non-stop until midnight. With a large number of Indiana University grads in attendance too, the night ended with an amazing sing-along to “This is Indiana” by Brice Fox and Daniel Weber. Any true Hoosier fans know what we’re talking about ;) Incredible night, with incredible people!
