Sara and Chad’s Wedding DJ at Cuneo Mansion and Gardens
June 16, 2012 will be a day to remember for Sara and Chad who had their wedding and reception at the beautiful Cuneo Mansion and Gardens in Vernon Hills. MDM Entertainment was honored to be chosen as their wedding DJ and to be a part of their big day.
Sara and Chad also trusted MDM Entertainment with the task of enhancing the already incredible space at Cuneo Mansion with elegant ambient up-lighting. After the three person set-up crew was finished, the room was simply breathtaking.
Sara and her wedding DJ, David Olivares from MDM Entertainment, met at the venue several months beforehand to choose the perfect color that would compliment the rest of Sara and Chad’s décor. They also discussed the rest of the details like where the club-style lighting and trussing would be placed, pin-pointed the exact spot her name-in-lights would shine on the dance-floor and went over options of where the uplighting would look best. Mary from Cuneo Mansion was fantastic in allowing Sara, her dad and David to discuss these details at the venue and really made them all feel at home.
Mary was also fantastic to work with on the day of the wedding. She and David discussed the timeline and made sure every single detail was covered to ensure a smooth transition of events for the entire evening. She made sure that dinner came out promptly while guests enjoyed the dinner music that Sara, Chad and David had programmed for the evening. It was an elegant mix of Jazz standards with crooners like Sinatra, Dean Martin and Ella Fitzgerald intertwined with more contemporary artists like Buble, Mraz, and even some Motown!
By the end of dinner, people were ready to get down! The party atmosphere was set from the very beginning with the grand entrance being introduced over AC/DC’s Back in Black and the bride and groom coming in to the Iowa Fight song. It was magical and made even better with the use of spotlights that were also color coordinated to match the nights color theme.
Sara and Chad partied like rock stars all night long! The mixture of music pleased every guest as they too danced the night away. Once the limo picked up the couple at the end of the majestic evening, David played for another half hour but the guests wanted more!
It was sad to have to take everything down and leave the room bare again but I’m sure Sara and Chad will remember that night forever.
