Chete + Doug’s Key West Wedding! DJ-Lighting-Photo Booth

Every wedding in Key West this November has had the most perfect weather I’ve ever witnessed.  Cool breeze, countless stars in the sky, and this one in particular was complemented with a full moon.  Chete and Doug had their wedding on the beach at the Casa Marina, which always hosts a picture-perfect setting.  Dancing under the palm trees and walking around in the sand really creates a novel atmosphere that everyone enjoys.

They hired us to provide DJ service, uplighting the palm trees, and a photo booth, which is always the perfect package for any wedding.  Everyone was having a fantastic time dancing back and forth from the dance floor to the photo booth, and at the end of the night, Chete & Doug received a wonderful scrapbook with the help of their guests and our photo booth staff, Talia and Jason.  Some of their guests were from Nicaragua, where Chete is from, and I was introduced to some of their music which was awesome!  I think some of that music will be making it into my playlist for future events :)

The wedding was planned very well by Jenn and Danielle from We’ve Got the Keys, and the dinner menu was nothing short of extraordinary, thanks to the staff at Casa Marina and their in-house planner, Reina.  Mary Veal Photography did a wonderful job of capturing all the precious moments, and they also hired White Orchid Studios to help create their one-of-a-kind wedding video.  It’s always great to work with such an all-star team!

Chete and Doug, if you are reading this, thank you so much for letting me a part of such a special moment in your life.  You two were awesome to work with!  Congratulations!

Kylie + Kevin’s Key West Wedding – Southernmost Mansion – DJ & String Lighting

I always enjoy sitting at my computer and going over the wedding night that I’m about to write about.  It’s like I get to relive another awesome wedding during the week.  When I sit back to think of all the great memories shared at Kylie + Kevin’s Key West wedding, I remember how beautiful the weather was.  I know it’s a bit funny to think about that right off the bat, but I remember them showing concern about the wedding, and my only (comforting) response was that Key West has a funny way of coming through with beautiful weather.  I wasn’t sure what else I could say, but I just knew things would turn around.  It had, and everything about the weather was perfect!

I was the DJ for their ceremony, cocktail hour, as well as the reception, and was also contracted to do string lighting.  My job never gets old.  Everyone was having a great time dancing and sharing memories, and I always love being a part of that interaction.  Great Events Catering put out an amazing display, as always, cooking up nothing but the best menu with the freshest ingredients.  Did you know that these guys bring out a kabob grill as part of their presentation?!  Now that’s first class!  It was also the elegant flower arrangements done by Love In Bloom that created a nice focal point at each table, while providing a very nice bride bouquet that added great colors to Kylie’s dress.  A Modern Romance was the wedding planner and everything stayed nice and organized.

As the sun began to set, it was then that our string lighting really started to pop.  This job we did is our newest design at the Southernmost Mansion, and I think it really brings out the hard lines of the property.  It’s not too much, where it becomes overpowering in pictures, but gives just enough light for people to see as their walking around (very important), and having it along the side of the pool creates an amazing reflection in the water that makes for beautiful pictures.  Now that we’ve done away with stringing the lights across the pool, it has opened up the amazing architecture of the house in all the photos.  I think the photos below speak for themselves, as Limelight Photography did a wonderful job in capturing priceless moments throughout the night.

Another flawless wedding night in Key West and a big congratulations goes out to the wonderful couple, Kylie + Kevin!
