Human Entertainment

Weddings have become such huge productions that its hard to come up with ideas that will surprise your guests. If you are looking to think out of the box and leave your guests in awe consider hiring one of the following entertainers: 

Human Red Carpet 
Imagine just guest being welcomed hollywood style with a long red carpet, the twist? When they get to the end they realize its actually the train of a dress and that there is a live person there to welcome and direct them to your festivities. 

Flaring Bartenders 

Your bar will always be one of the main focuses at your event as guests will spend a lot of time getting their drinks, so why not have the bartenders put on a show? Consider having your bartenders mixing cocktails for your guests while putting on a fire show. 

Aerial Bartenders 
This one is our favorite! To really leave your guests in awe consider having your bartenders serving cocktails from above! Weather it be a champaign greeting, or getting drinks for your guests on the dance floor Aerial Bartenders offer guests immediate service with a crazy spin.

Real Weddings: Labor Day Weekend

To many Labor Day is the end of the summer, and in the wedding industry its the end to a very busy season. We ended the summer season with not one, but two amazing weddings!

We started is off with Dhvani and Vik's weddings events at the Hilton Pearl River. DJ Suhel got all the guests dancing from the early morning baraat, all the way to the last seconds of the reception.

The team over at Rangoli Weddings did a stunning job with all the decor and Masala Kitchen kept everything going for seconds with the great food!

Saturday we also helped Rupa and Rahul celebrate their Around the World Sangeet at the Posh Lounge at the Garden City Hotel. Guests enjoyed mehendi artists as well as some travel themed treats.

The next morning guests headed to the Woodbury Country Club for a Garden Ceremony. 

After the traditional ceremony guests headed back to The Garden City hotel for a stunning jewel tones reception designed by Jeannie at Atlas Floral. 

Guests enjoyed amazing food by Bukhara Grill and danced the night away thanks to DJ Dennis from IEDJS. 

Congratulation to the happy couples!

Wedding Lighting – what you need to know

Most people don’t actually realize just how essential a part that lighting can play in their wedding.

The right lighting can create the desired mood and atmosphere, while ensuring your guests enjoy a captivating and enchanting experience.

People are often surprised to discover that the right lighting greatly contributes to the success of their event. In order to ensure your wedding is everything you hoped and more, here is what we recommend in terms of necessary lighting:

A sangeet requires at least 20 uplights and 2 moving heads, while a reception should feature at least 40-50 uplights and 4 moving heads.

It really is important not to overlook what will turn out to be an integral part of your special day!
