NYE Wedding Night with the Burrow

Man, where to start. We don't like to play favorites, we spend hours communicating with all our wedding clients, endless emails, phone calls, in person meetings, video calls/faceTime. We get to know our brides and grooms pretty well however, some clients ask us to pull out every rabbit in our event production hat we have to help make their dream wedding come to fruition. This is also known as our "Bespoke Booking" option when our prebuilt packages just won't fit your true wants for your wedding day and you need a completely custom experience. This was the case for Elizabeth and Brandon Burrow and their amazing New Years Eve Wedding in Roanoke, VA. 

Elizabeth and Brandon knew what they wanted, and all I really had to do is let them know how I could fit into their ideas. I really think things clicked between us all when the then, bride to be said, "we want you to DJ on your turntables and after 10pm, we want the place to turn into a night club and you can just do your thing." I mean, Club Wed is one of my speciality and something exclusive to DV-E, but being given almost a green light to have complete creative freedom DJing in a night-club format at a wedding was one of the greatest gifts a client could give me/us. 

So what did we actually end off providing for Brandon and Elizabeths wedding? Basically everything we offer. I was DJing our Club Wed option, we provided a expanded Dance lights package with custom programed light show to change the mood throughout the night, we made custom video visuals and a custom countdown clock for the ball drop, room up lighting, Full range room sound, a custom DJ table. We brought EVERYTHING!

I have to be clear, we were just one piece of the puzzle and cannot take that much credit for how successful the night was. The team of vendors put together by the Burrows were top notch and I couldn't have asked for a better group of event professionals to work with and spend my New Years Eve with. I'll list them below, but here are a few photos from that night to show you the amazing design work in a already amazing venue that I just helped complement.

I could gush for days, but I'll just let the photos speak for themselves. We took a few pre-event photos, all the action photos can be credited to the ever talented Tracie Hoprich of Tracie Hoprich Photography. Special thanks to her and the bride and groom for letting me share those photos here on the DV-E blog. Before I share the photos below, thanks again to Elizabeth and Brandon for letting us be apart of such a amazing night!

Johathan & Stacy's Spring time Wedding, Braeloch at Boxtree Lodge, Vinton, VA

Johathan and Stacy kicked off our wedding season with the first wedding of the year, and they couldn't have had a more amazing event. We provided the sound, DJing, and ceremony audio where the bride and groom chose likely one of the best acoustic renditions of the main theme song from Jurassic Park. With amazing family made Asian dishes, to the sunset over looking nearby downtown Roanoke, to the beautiful venue of Braeloch. This wedding was such a great start to the year.

Allison & Seth's Transportation Museum wedding, Roanoke, VA

Our team tried to play it cool during the booking process, however once Allison & Seth decided to have DV Entertainment DJ their wedding reception at the Virginia Museum of Transportation, we then felt safe to completely geek out on how childishly excited we were to be working for them in the auto display room. The transportation museum in Roanoke is one of those venues that will always be amazing to walk into. You are literally in the company of man man giants like steam locomotive 611, and 1218. Lets not overlook the awesomeness that was happening in the reception area, where guests stat to dine beside an array of automobiles from our past, and yes, even a DeLorean

Although our setup was simple, we added a bit of color pop the the back wall and Goodyear sign behind the DJ table, and keep the party jumping all night long. We can't thank Allison and Seth enough for letting us be apart of their wedding day, it was defiantly a memorable night.

Tosha & Tony's Mountain Lake Wedding, Pembroke, VA

Tosha & Tony's wedding day was set at the infamous Dirty Dancing film location of Mountain Lake in Pembroke, VA. I've worked many events at Mountain Lake and I'm not sure I've ever seen the barn so transformed as I did this time. The rain might have changed a few things, but it didn't stop everyone from celebrating with the newly weds and taking the party well into the night!
