For their very large late summer wedding reception, Manchester University grads wanted to return to their college roots and host their celebration on the Manchester College Campus in the Student Union. This unique venue was actually perfectly suited to a reception complete with beautiful newly constructed banquet room and full audio-visual capabilities. Because they would be having nearly 350 guests, Chaitra chose our Platinum wedding package with its more powerful sound system and dancefloor lighting capabilities.
As a way to add unique and individual flair to their event Chaitra and Ryan asked their North Manchester, IN wedding DJ to add uplighting and text-to-screen video messaging as enhancements to their entertainment package. They chose a peacock blue color with our Highlight uplighting package and our TextLive feature running through the venue’s in house video projection system. The ambient uplighting looked fantastic against white pipe and drape placed behind the head table and the two installed video screens dropped down from the ceiling flanking both side of the head table. The hundreds of guests could easily see the screens at all time and had a blast texting their well wishes and fun stories to the screen while reading fun facts about the newlyweds at the same time.
As another feature of the Platinum package, Sticky Boots pre-produced a unique medley of songs for Ryan’s mother-son dance featuring hits from several genres and eras, designed to surprise and awe the guests with their practiced dance routine. With no extra charge for this studio service, it was a great way to add even more personal touch on the reception.
After dinner and an interactive wedding party dance, the couple’s northern Indiana wedding deejay rocked the crowd for hours with a wide variety of open-format hits and hip-hop. Subwoofers, digital turntables, TextLive, and uplighting…that’s the recipe for a memorable night!
