Nick & Jenna’s Wedding 10/23/15

Nick & Jenna’s Wedding 10/23/15

Nick & Jenna had a beautiful Wedding Ceremony and Reception at Riverview Country Club on October 23, 2015. When I first met with Jenna & Nick, they explained to me that they wanted to do something a little different. As avid music lovers, who happen to have a bit of talent, they wanted to play a little set of music live of their own to entertain their guests. After listening to their needs, we agreed to provide a sound board, sound reinforcement, along with a small light show for the band’s setup. Not only did they sound pretty good, I was utterly blown away by the skill it took for Jenna to play percussion in her Wedding dress, especially because her kit kept sliding around on the stone floor. Nick did a great job own lead guitar and vocals, and Jenna’s dad played the first couple of songs on bass, to be relieved by one of the couples friends.
The guests were really into it, and enjoyed themselves, and I was grateful, as the newlyweds got the crowd so fired up, it was easy to keep a packed dance floor.
Besides the setup for the band. SRE provided DJ/MC service, full Ceremony audio service, along with our exclusive computer controlled wireless Uplighting that made the entire reception hall come alive.
