Christopher & Jeremy's Wedding, Bold Rock, Nellysford, VA

What a wonderful start to the event season! Working with Christopher and Jeremy over several months to plan out their amazing reception was a absolute pleasure and their vision was a wonderful channel for our team to nail, not only the music playlist, but the lighting design we did for the entire (we mean the whole back space there at Bold Rock Cindery) to really set the mood for their wedding day. We also designed and programed a custom light show for their dance floor, such a rare thing for weddings, and a challenge we were ready for! All of the large and small details really showed their personality and made this quite the unique and fun wedding. The pop-pie for food, the food trucks with tacos, fish and chips, and other fair-like food, and the ice cream sandwich toast! It was such a wonderful night of dancing, food, drinks, and love. Congrats you guys!

Cody & Mady's Wedding, King Family Vineyard, Crozet, VA

What a wonderful day was Cody and Mady's wedding day at King Family Vineyard in Crozet. Just a short drive from our home office, this was our first visit to King Family and hopefully not our last. The sky was full of wonderful white fluffy clouds and the bluest skies, and the sunset dropping below the valley in the distance. Picture perfect is a bit cliche but a accurate description. We ran sound for the ceremony as well as DJ'ed and setup lighting in The Carriage House and couldn't ask for a better setting for a evening of amazing food, donuts, wine, and dancing. 

We've have several amazing options and layouts for King Family Vineyard already and we put those recommendations to work for Cody and Mady. We set up our large 4 speaker PA system to spread sound throughout the room, a wireless speaker was set up in The North Gallery to feed sound for the cocktail hour as well as the rest of the night as ran sound for the ceremony outside in the back field. What we love about The Carriage House is with the dance floor placed near the center rear of the room, we were able to setup a 4-corner lighting setup which once dancing begun, really brought the party vibe to the room. 

Mady and Cody couldn't have asked for a better day and we're so happy to have been there to help them celebrate their wedding day. Congrats!

Jess & Drew's wedding at Bold Rock Cidery, Nellysford VA

- WRITTEN BY LEAD WEDDING DJ, DAVID VERDE

I always love it when I get to know my wedding couples beyond the landscape of emails. In the modern world you do get to know people pretty well in text form however I had the pleasure to chat with Jess and Drew on the phone a few times, video call as well as meet in person for a venue walk through. With that by the time I arrived to their wedding I wasn't there with just my clients but among friends. The evening started promptly at 6:45pm just as the sun dipped behind the trees casting the most perfectly timed curtain of shade on the ceremony site down by the creek in the field beyond the cidery. Once they said I-Do, everyone made their way up the hill and carried the evening into the night. 

We had another first at Drew and Jess' wedding. We provided our ceremony sound support, but we also provided a mobile generator that is not available for rent to give power at the ceremony site! It's no louder a running car so it was perfect. We also setup up our wireless battery powered LED uplights outside in the reception around adding some lovely light to the stairs of the cidery deck. It was a lovely view both in decor and watching everyone have an amazing time.

Boxy Booth Moments: Grownup Disney birthday party? Yes please!

Over the weekend, we hauled our digital photobooth, Boxy Booth to Hokie country, Blacksburg, Virginia for a game day birthday party. At least that's what we thought it was. It turned out to be Kelly's birthday, and she loves Disney, a lot (so does DV-E's owner). I think the results are far greater than expected. Checkout the video montage from her event.
