The Taubman, in my opinion, is one of the highlights to the Roanoke skyline. Yes, it hasn't been there as long as some of the other Roanoke staples, but it's glass walls and metal exterior is marvelous both from the outside, and particularly the inside. When you start thinking about what a wedding might look like in there, your imagination runs a free as likely many of the artists who work is collected and on display inside. With that, Sydney and Adrian's wedding was everything I imagined it could be and more once we started planning and then of course, came to set up for the day.
The room was primed by Brad from Lighting Ninja's, Blue Ridge Catering, and florist Mark with Creative Occasions so we staged everything so we could quickly go from ceremony to reception. It's amazing how different the room looks between the two setups.
Providing DJ services, Sydney and Adrian stepped things up by adding our Club Wed enhancement, so I was DJing on full-turntables all night. We also provided dance floor lighting, ceremony sound operation for the both the officiant and the live musician they had. Let's not forget the surprise guitar performance by Adrian singing to his new bride which we had planned a few weeks prior.
It was a amazing evening! Thanks so much to Adrian and Sydney for allowing me to be apart of their wedding day and big thanks to everyone at the Taubman for their help making their venue accessible for setup and breakdown. Make sure you check out one of the amazing photos the talented Chris Jackson took during their wedding.
