Amanda and Bobby’s Dream Wedding
Love was most definitely in the air on March 10th as Amanda and Bobby said their “I do’s” and celebrated their beautiful wedding day. The setting for their dream wedding reception was at Venuti’s in Addison and they set the place aglow with their love… and special event lighting.
MDM Entertainment has the privilege of working at Venuti’s often, yet it never ceases to amaze us how different it looks at every event. Choosing the right decor, lighting and personal touches creates an atmosphere and environment as unique as the couple themselves.
When we first met with Amanda she had a fabulous vision for the look and feel of her wedding day. We were as excited as she was to bring it to life. Her first great ideas was to have a DJ Cabana to showcase their DJ; there was no doubt this was going to be a cool set-up. It would give the whole wedding a contemporary, cutting-edge look, with a South Beach lounge feel.
Amanda’s second idea was to have a dramatic, uplit backdrop to frame the head table and two fabric-draped, uplit columns at either side. The columns added the perfect touch of decor and dimension to the space.
When Amanda and Bobby walked into the room they were thrilled to see how their vision had come together! (As were we!) That’s one of the greatest things about our job, being able to make a bride’s dream wedding come true.
Before the dancing got underway Amanda and Bobby took the mic with a few words of thanks to all of their family and friends for celebrating with them on their wedding day. They also thanked their wedding planner, Karolina Warren, for all of her hard work and putting together a “David Tutera” caliber wedding (which in the wedding industry is very high praise indeed!).
When it was time to dance the night away, DJ Alan from Okyne Media Lab, jumped right into some serious club music and kept the party rocking with a mix of house music, dub step, a touch of hip hop, and a few wedding classics thrown in for good measure. We even saw some of the older folks on the floor jamming to some hard core cuts! Alan’s tunes, along with the nightclub style intelligent lighting we provided, really turned Venuti’s ballroom into a serious nightclub.
Here is what Amanda had to say about the lighting and decor on our Facebook page after the wedding:
“Oh my god you guys did amazing!!! Way to set the mood for the whole night with the lighting!!! Hands down the best day/night of my life 🙂 I will email you guys pictures when our photographer gets them back to us :)”
We can’t wait to see the pictures either! The photographers and videographers were from Furla in Chicago. We’ve had the pleasure of working with them before and are big fans of their work!
This was no average wedding reception and were thrilled to have been a part of it! Congratulations on your wedding Amanda and Bobby!
