What do you do when your fiancé loves professional wrestling and has a self-proclaimed “man-crush” on Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? You incorporate that passion into the grand entrance of your northwest Indiana wedding reception of course! John contacted us nearly a year in advance about a hiring a Michigan City area DJ for his celebration, but he needed someone that could not only bring his vision of a WWE grand entrance to life, but who could also do all the planning from a distance as he and his fiancé Kari live in Iowa.
We rose to the challenge and provided him with award-winning customer service and video conferencing for planning meetings as well as a custom-produced entrance utilizing The Rock’s theme music and a build up introducing the two of them as “Indiana’s Most Electrifying Couple!” The event was held in Michigan City’s Kreuger Memorial Hall, which is a unique log-cabin style venue made challenging by its two separate levels. Cocktails and dinner would be in the lower level while a photo montage video, grand entrance, cake cutting, and dancing would be in the main, upper level. We provide a solution of two separate sound systems, complete with wireless microphones, so that there would be music and announcements in both levels and our expert DJ and emcee kept guests informed throughout the evening as to where they needed to be to keep up with all the action.
John and Kari’s friends were ready to party to say the least, and our talented northern Indiana DJ kept the dance floor packed all evening with a broad selection of 80’s and 90’s hip-hop, current Top 40 hits, and even a little Elvis and Dean Martin thrown in for good measure. The bride and groom had a blast and the epic celebration was one even the Rock himself would be proud of!
