Nicole and Doug’s Wedding

BY IN Weddings On May 1, 2016

The 2016 wedding season is off to a great start! Recently I had the pleasure of being the wedding DJ for Nicole and Doug at Dunham Woods Riding Club in Wayne, IL. I was excited to work at Dunham Woods again as soon as I heard the location because I know their staff, just like me, will go above and beyond to make sure everything for someone’s special day is exactly as it should be (or better!)

I will say without a doubt this was a totally amazing wedding. To give a little background, Nicole and Doug got married in January on a beach in Tahiti (how lucky!), and now they wanted to have a celebration with all of their family and friends present. They wanted a slightly unconventional wedding, and totally casual, beach themed wedding, and that’s exactly what they got! For their wedding, they had no bridal party, no head table, no speeches (other than one great speech from Nicole and Doug themselves), no guest table assignments, and no official “dinner”. I thought this idea was awesome, and very different than the “norm”, and I’ll be the first to tell you, it worked really well. We had dinner stations where everyone was able to go visit whatever stations they’d like, and get whatever food they wanted. In order to encourage their guests to mix and mingle, they actually planned to have less seats than there were people at the wedding. You’ll see a hint of the beach theme in the pictures below, specifically the table centerpieces which held sand and sea shells.

Once the dancing got going, it didn’t stop! We literally had a packed dance floor from the first song until the very last! Assistant Jon did a great job capturing some pictures of this throughout the night. Nicole and Doug were just such an awesome couple to work with from the beginning until the very end. To the two of you: thank you so much for choosing to work with me on your wedding, and I wish you all the best in your future together!
