Sandra and Sam had their late September Elkhart Indiana wedding reception overlooking the downtown at the Athenian Ballroom atop 500 S. Main Street. This unique wedding venue affords amazing views of Elkhart and the river and gives a classic early 1900’s charm to any reception. It was a perfect location to complement the gorgeous natural ceremony setting of Wellfield Botanic Gardens.
The DJ Sticky Boots Platinum Wedding Package was the couple’s choice for entertainment, complete with red accents and wash lighting to complement the red, white, and black décor. Sandra also loved our exclusive “TextLive” interactive video messaging, and we provide a unique lycra rear-projection screen with digital projector to make the presentation look great.
Our graphic designer created a beautiful TextLive image based on one of the couple’s engagement photos and guests had a blast after dinner texting their well wishes, congratulations and memories directly to the screen, not to mention cheers for the Notre Dame game being played a few miles to the west in South Bend that night. Later in the evening they were treated to random fun facts about the couple on the screen in between more guest generated stories and funny comments. Sam and Sandra also loved being able to keep a written transcript of all the texts from that evening after their Elkhart County Indiana wedding reception.
Guests listened to jazz favorites while enjoying a fantastic dinner buffet served by Pumpernickles Catering before dancing for the evening kicked off with Sam and Sandra’s first dance. After parent dances and a traditional dollar dance, the dance floor was opened to everyone and guests enjoyed dancing, texting, watching the Notre Dame football game on an alternate screen and were even treated to an impromptu rap performance by a friend of the groom towards the end of the evening, all captured by Marsha from Smiles by Stiles Photography. A very complete reception indeed!
