Katy and Ben are just one of those couples you know from the first time you meet them they are going to be a blast to work with. Everything clicks from their attitude to their taste in music, their vendor selection, and their overall vision for the celebration. The couple chose to work DJ Sticky Boots as their Goshen wedding entertainer and picked our Platinum wedding package to complete the venue. They also wanted some pops of purple in the event space at the Old Bag Factory, so picked our Splash uplighting package to complement the décor.
Bread and Chocolate provided the setting and catering duties and guests arrived to the reception with a unique configuration where the Elkhart County wedding DJ was set up in the bar/cocktail area of the Bridal Suite for cocktails and open dancing and the formal dinner and special dances took place in the ballroom. This was necessary due to the large group of guests attending, who numbered nearly 250.
Guests arrived and enjoyed cocktails with a light jazz playlist, then migrated to the ballroom for a custom edited “R. Kelly” grand entrance of each member of the bridal party, which Sticky Boots put together in the studio in honor of Katy’s undying love of all things R. Kelly. Each bridal party pair danced their way in to a different R. Kelly hit, which was a hit itself with the guests. The unique entrance was followed by toasts and a delicious plated meal from Bread & Chocolate.
After the cake was cut and special dances were complete, guests moved back out to the DJ’s area for dancing; and did they ever! This is one of the most fun, energetic dancing crowds we have had this summer, and a playlist heavy on 90’s hip-hop and R. Kelly (Katy’s favorite), was a sure cause of it. Their Elkhart area wedding DJ, Sticky Boots, excels at just this sort of vibe, and threw down a smoking set of music for the record books. The dance floor was packed for the entire evening and when it was finally time for the last dance, guests certainly didn’t want to leave. What a blast!
