What can we say about Rachelle and Gary? Their wedding on October 11th was a night filled with happiness… and excessive amounts of laughter. They had an awesome group of family and friends. These two had so much going on that night! It was obvious that they really wanted their guests to be entertained and enjoy their night. Rachelle and Gary both had a vision and we were more than capable of pulling it off. They were so excited at our planning meetings when we discussed their plans and what we could do to help with each aspect of their wedding entertainment. We just loved being a part of it all. We worked with a photographer from Bill Smith Photography. He was really nice, we hope to get some pics. They had their ceremony & reception at the Radisson on Leisure Lane. It is so beautiful there. When we arrived and saw the set-up of the room, we immediately were concerned with the head table getting lost with how much other things they had going on. It needed to stand out a little more so we added just a few lights and it changed it all, see our pics below of before and after. We also got a clip of one of their customized dances, they were so excited and worked so hard, their guests enjoyed it soooo much! Here are a few pics & their songs:

We had the pleasure to work with the sweet Jennifer with Pechan Photograpy. We can’t wait to get some pics. They were soooo cute we loved Nicole; she was so happy and so nervous. We love it when our couples get nervous and cry as bad as that sounds, but it feels real, genuine (Not that if you don’t cry or get nervous your not).

We didn’t get to chat with their other vendors much because the wedding was non-stop all day.  No matter what happened they were so great and happy.

They had a family friend do a photo montage of pictures and we provided the projector and screen. It was cute and all their family enjoyed it.
