Kara and Marc’s Wedding

BY IN Weddings On July 7, 2015

Kara and Marc recently tied the knot this past June, where I was able to be their Wedding DJ down in Shelbyville, IL (it’s about 3.5 hours south of Chicago) at Spruce Street Studios. Needless to say, this was my first time working at the venue, which turned out to be a great experience. The staff at Spruce Street Studios were really great to work with, and very accommodating since I was limited to working with them over phone and email exclusively in order to make sure everything was perfect, without the ability to do a venue site walk ahead of time (since it’s so far away).

For this wedding, I (with the assistance of DJ FastLane) provided Wedding DJ services for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. This wedding had a unique set up where the cocktail hour was in the hallway (opposite the DJ setup in the reception hall) and outside. For this, I was able to use a special high-end wireless audio system to transmit the audio from the reception hall to both other locations. This let me easily make announcements throughout the entire venue while keeping music consistent as well!

Kara and Marc’s wedding photographer, Jeff Wagner of J-Wag Photography along with his crew were involved in the entire day, shooting pictures early in the morning all the way through the reception, and even ran the photobooth in the hallway.

Kara and Marc, thanks again for honoring me and letting me be a part of your lives as personal friends, as well as your wedding DJ!
