Kristin and Donald got married last Saturday at the Eaglewood Resort in Itasca and what a wonderful day it was. It would have been nice had the weather cooperated and been as warm as it was earlier in the week but alas, we live in Chicago.

There were definitely a lot of hands up in the air shaking vigorously as Kristin and Donald entered the room!

Several members of the MDM Entertainment team went to Las Vegas last week for the Mobile Beat 2010 DJ Convention. Needless to say we all had a great time but we were there to learn and learn we did! Tweet
