ALICIA & PATRICK'S FAIRYTALE SOUTH BEND WEDDING | DJ, UPLIGHTING

ALICIA & PATRICK'S FAIRYTALE SOUTH BEND WEDDING | DJ, UPLIGHTING

Holy moly! It was a beautiful night in downtown South Bend, Indiana! Blue skies, light breeze, big white clouds ... exactly the recipe for a stunning September Saturday.

Alicia and Patrick hoped for exactly this type of wedding day and made sure they selected a wedding reception venue that would showcase beautiful weather. The Century Center in downtown South Bend fit the bill perfectly ... Island Park for cocktails and the Great Hall with huge windows for dinner and dancing. The bonus, they BOTH overlook the St. Joseph River and East Race!

SKYLAR & RYAN'S SCENIC WOODED RECEPTION IN BOURBON, INDIANA | DJ

Located along the Historical Lincoln Highway, you'll find the quaint town of Bourbon. For many years, this small town has been home to Back Forty Sporting Clays, a 40-acres haven for shotgun shooting enthusiasts, but their Banquet Hall is a haven for couples who want a private wooded setting for their wedding ceremony and reception. In a nutshell, the Back Forty is pure late-summer bliss and it's exactly the setting that Skylar and Ryan wanted for their special day.

KATIE & PHILIP CELEBRATE AT THE BRICK IN SOUTH BEND | DJ

Industrial buildings are super trendy right now. Exposed loft ceilings with Edison light-bulbs combined with stained concrete floors create the perfect canvas for a truly unique wedding reception.

In South Bend, Indiana, The Brick has all these features and so (so!) much more. Located between the YMCA and the Farmer's Market on Northside Boulevard, this 5,000 square foot venue has a totally open floor plan, an outdoor patio, and an art-deco bar. So cool! The bonus: this was exactly what Katie and Philip were looking for!

ALYSSA & PEYTON'S 1850’S RESTORED BARN DREAM WEDDING | DJ, CEREMONY

When you live in the Midwest, we tend to take our big red barns, farming fields and winding roads for granted and guess what ... Elkhart County, Indiana is filled with these scenic vistas! People from all over the country visit this area for our rich Amish culture (and those delicious Amish meals).

Rock Run Creek Barn has all of those make-our-Midwestern-hearts-swell amenities, it's an 1850’s restored barn after all! But it's also air conditioned in the summer, heated in the winter and features inside restrooms ... oh, and it's handicap accessible! Such a big WIN!

AMANDA & ADAM'S SCENIC SUMMER BARN WEDDING IN GOSHEN | DJ, CEREMONY

AMANDA & ADAM'S SCENIC SUMMER BARN WEDDING IN GOSHEN | DJ, CEREMONY

Big red barns are kind of a staple for Indiana landscapes and Meadow Brook Barn is no exception. This farmstead in Goshen, Indiana, is well known for hosting community fairs in the early 1900’s, making its mark in Indiana’s listing of historical places.

The best part of this beautiful venue is it's filled with unique rustic spaces, magnificent views, and whimsical flowers ... which is exactly what Amanda and Adam wanted for their wedding ceremony and reception.

This Bristol-based couple also wanted a fun, lighthearted evening where people felt comfortable dancing the night away but were a bit concerned that their guests wouldn't leave the comfort of their chairs (because lets face it, summer heat combined with air conditioning and a soft chair can be a tiny slice of heaven). This is where DJ Sticky Boots and the Platinum wedding package is such a great choice because he can create the perfect mix to get all ages on the dance floor.

HOLIDAY WEEKEND WEDDING FOR STEPHANIE & PJ ON LAKE WAWASEE | DJ, CEREMONY

HOLIDAY WEEKEND WEDDING FOR STEPHANIE & PJ ON LAKE WAWASEE | DJ, CEREMONY

Indiana summers are beautiful, and can sometimes be a bit toasty. But, we tend to think just looking at water can have a cooling effect, so choosing a wedding venue on the shore of Lake Wawasee is a perfect choice!

For us, a perfect lakeside venue near Goshen is Oakwood Resort in Syracuse, Indiana! Great minds think alike and we love that Stephanie and PJ chose Oakwood Resort’s Hilltop Banquet space because it’s indoors (with air conditioning!) but still has a panoramic view of Lake Wawasee.

RUSTIC BARN WEDDING FOR GINA & AARON | DJ, CEREMONY

Barn weddings, surrounded by farm fields and rustic granary are so Pinterest-worthy and here in Elkhart County we have some absolutely beautiful barn venues to choose from!

One of our favorites is Meadow Brook Barn in Goshen, Indiana, and we were thrilled when Gina and Aaron selected this venue (and, lets be honest, we were thrilled they selected DJ Sticky Boots and our Platinum wedding package to be a part of their big day, too!).

At The Norris Estate, located in Nappanee, Indiana, all of those amenities and more are available, because let’s face it - it’s your wedding day and you should feel like royalty.
