Morgan and Jordan didn’t let the lack of snow on their December wedding stop them from having a beautiful winter themed reception at City View.

The custom monogram was the focal point of the space which was placed on our white backdrop above the head table. We used an elegant cursive font for their names surrounded by snowflakes.

The silver chiavari chairs added the perfect touch of color and elegance to each table. They went perfectly with the sky blue table runners and other accents throughout the space.

The blue uplighting gave the room that winter feel. We coordinated the lighting color to match the table runners. To add to this look, the couple placed lighted snowflakes in the windows and swagged garland from the ceiling.

The centerpieces looked amazing. They used shimmery lighted branches in silver vases while other tables had floating candles with silver accents.

We provided the black polyester tablecloths and white napkins for each table.They chose to use a variety of banquet and round tables.

A fun aspect of the wedding was the couple’s interest in professional wrestling. The bridal party and newlyweds made their grand entrances into the reception to the theme songs of popular wrestlers. The grooms cake even had the professional wrestling symbol on it! We hope everyone had a great time in our photo booth and Escalade limousine. It was a pleasure to DJ the reception, as well. Best wishes to the newlyweds from everyone at Elite!

The place cards added a touch of shimmer and went along great with the other gold accents. We couldn’t be happier with the way everything came together.

Briana and Zach had a gorgeous day for their ceremony and reception at Timber Creek Bed and Breakfast in Paxton. The ceremony took place on the lawn and then everyone headed to the reception in a tent nearby. It is such a beautiful venue and definitely a unique!

Boice Reception 9.27.14 010

Check out the transformation from day to night. The uplighting placed around the tent makes a stunning statement inside and out! It gives the tent a warm, inviting feel and provides extra lighting as well.

We also placed a gobo pattern on the ceiling of the tent. The leaves went perfectly with the fall theme of the wedding and the rustic feel of the venue. In addition to that, we provided a custom monogram that displayed the newlywed’s names. This was placed on the dance floor to catch everyone’s attention as they entered.

The tiffany blue uplighting created a beautiful backdrop for Wes and Megan’s reception at Oak Terrace. They used touches of blue around the room including their wedding favors, place cards, and lights in each flower vase. The centerpieces were beautiful!

Along with the tiffany blue, we used white polyester chair covers and black satin sashes. To incorporate more color to each table we used  black satin runners.

They used a mixture of round and banquet tables which is a new trend we love! It’s a great way to add some variety to your seating arrangements.

This unique color combination looked amazing at the Elks Club in Pontiac. To make the jade satin sashes stand out, we paired them with our black polyester chair covers.  The white overlays brightened up each table, while the black runner tied everything together. We placed 40 uplights around the room to incorporate more color. It matched perfectly to the jade accents throughout the space.

We love the creativity used with linens on the head table. Instead of just jade satin linens, they swagged the table cloths in order to see the white table skirting underneath. Such a great idea!

Their monogram looked so pretty on the stone fireplace. This design showcased their first names with their last initial in a beautiful cursive font.

All the guests were ‘wow’ed when they walked into the ballroom. It looked absolutely stunning and we love how everything came together!  Best wishes on your new life together Erin and Max. We were absolutely thrilled to have been a part of your special day!

The space was decorated in pink, black, silver and white. We provided the silver table overlays and the black chiavari chairs with a black chair pad. The dark chairs looked stunning against the light linens.

The pink accents throughout the room looked amazing! The table numbers and menu cards added a touch of color to each table, while the pink uplighting added a more dramatic look!

We even used a pink runner across the head to table to incorporate more color. We love the way everything came together! We were honored to have been the DJ for the evening, too. Congratulations Jessica and Chet! We wish you many years of wedded bliss!
