Ashleigh and Justin’s Wedding
As wedding season is coming to an end (as it gets cold here in Chicagoland), we just completed our last outdoor ceremony for the season as we celebrated with Ashleigh and Justin. Picking an October date for an outdoor ceremony can be a gamble here, but the weather fully cooperated with us to provide us some gorgeous fall weather for Ashleigh and Justin’s wedding at the Four Rivers Educational Center in Channahon, IL. The ceremony went off without a hitch and no one got too cold in the process! After the ceremony, we all made our way inside to enjoy the cocktail hour and then reception.
I have actually never performed at this venue before, and I will say it was a really nice place to work. When looking at the head table you could see outside on to a pond in a very nice, natural setting. Ashleigh and Justin partied with their guests all night and had a great time. Inside, assistant Amir and I were able to set up the speakers and lighting totems on each side of the head table, in order to keep all attention directed to the bridal party, instead of me as the DJ (our table was in the corner). We also used the wireless uplighting to give the entire room a very nice purple glow. For dinner, Ashleigh and Justin picked Uncle Bub’s Catering, which I loved as a very welcomed change in pace (from what most of us have come to expect at weddings)!
Ashleigh and Justin actually saw me at Justin’s cousin’s wedding (who it was awesome to see again!) just over a year prior. After they saw me, they almost immediately booked me for their wedding! They also used Liz of Eddie’s Photography who was not only really nice to work with, but did a great job capturing the day and night’s events!
Congratulations again to Ashleigh and Justin! You were an excellent couple to work with over the course of a year and a half and I hope to see you both again in the future!
