Lindsay and Chad live in Baltimore, MD. However, they chose the scenic The Baywood Greens in Longneck DE for their Ceremony and Reception. It was blue skies over the beautifully landscaped gardens, causeways with a lake with an arched bridge as a backdrop for the Ceremony. Due to the distance constraints, Silver Sound DJ Paul Evans was able to utilize Skype to conduct a client consultation. He was excited to be chosen despite the distance and pledged to bring great sound and lighting. Will was on hand with Paul to capture some of the moments. Nearly 200 images were emailed promptly after the reception while Lindsay and Chad were on their honeymoon to which they replied,
“Thank you so much not only for the beautiful pictures, but also for being our DJ. We had a wonderful time, and cannot thank you enough. We are in Aruba now for the honeymoon and just happened to be checking our email, and it was such a nice surprise to see these beautiful pictures while we are still here! That was very special, so thank you very much!”
There was lots of dancing interspersed with backdrop pictures on the lobby balcony as well as enjoying the breezy view from the ballroom balcony. Special thanks to Lauren Hanna at Baywood Greens, who always has kind words for Silver Sound, mentioning us to her clients. It makes the drive worthwhile to work with such an enthusiastic facility professional surrounded by the most scenic manicured grounds we have ever seen. All the best to Lindsay and Chad and thanks for trusting us from such a long distance.
Recently Silver Sound DJ Paul Evans was entertaining guests of Brian and Meredith at The William Penn Inn for their reception. After their grand introduction, Brian and Meredith surprised their guests with a choreographed dance to Michael Bubble’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” Paul said it was really great to see them moving so gracefully together. “I had to grab a video clip of it”, thought DJ Paul Evans. The pictures below that illustrate this story were captured by Paul as well as his assistant Will.
Our couple also wanted to entertain their guests with a quiz that Paul Evans gave them sitting back-to-back on the dance floor. Paul asked them questions, such as, ”who controls the TV remote control” and “who puts out the trash?” The person who thought they were in charge lifted their shoe, if they thought the other person usually was in charge, they lifted their shoe. It was an interesting game and the audience was brought to laughter on almost every response.
Meredith and her bridesmaids had it going on dancing and singing together, showing ballet poses and syncopated limbo poses. During some of the more modern club songs you can see Meredith battling one of her friends on the dance floor. “Brian Walton was one of the most considerate people I have had the pleasure of providing services for” said DJ Paul Evans. ” He was always checking to see that we were ok, that we got something to eat, had everything we needed.”
Working at the William Penn Inn is always a great experience. Paul had arranged uplights in the stage area in the Carriage room, where the acoustics are excellent. So much so that you can feel the bass all down the wooden ballroom dance floor.
The night drew to a close with a strong dance floor and like the first dance ended with a dip with a kiss. All the best to our dancing couple Brian and Meredith Walton!
It could not have been a more beautiful day for the wedding of Kiersten and Felix on the river at The Water Works Restaurant. This location included a restaurant, pavilion and gazebo all located at the edge of the Schuylkill River and below the Philadelphia Art Museum. Kiersten and Felix had their ceremony at the gazebo followed by their cocktail hour and reception under the pavilion with adjoining tents on both sides to accommodate 160 guests for a sit-down dinner. As you can see in the pictures, two 50-inch plasma televisions were under each tent running a slide show that Kiersten and Felix made for everyone to see during cocktail hour and dinner.
Assistance in organizing the details of Kiersten and Felix’s celebration was provided by Megan Kline of Megan Kline Events who you can see arranging name cards in the photos below. Silver Sound DJ Paul Evans brought a four-speaker sound system. The two outer speakers tilted towards the tents so all music and announcements could easily be heard and understood. Because Paul was setup with his back to the sunset on the river, the glare was preventing him from seeing anything on his laptop screen. Thankfully, a custom built visor solved the problem. As they say “the show must go on.”
Prior to the event Paul met with Megan Kline as well as Sophia Agorastos, facility director,who were on hand for most of the event to make sure all the important logistics and catering played out. Kiersten and Felix had many guests from New York in attendance. They wanted a diverse music selection with some NYC Hip-Hop and cool grooves as well as Latin and dance club hits. There was also quite a bit of Salsa and Merengue Dancing throughout the course of the evening.
DJ Paul Evans, MC Jean Jacques and his brother Sam Jacques all had the distinct pleasure of taking turns dancing with the beautiful bride on her wedding day. All were impressed with the salsa dance moves of the groom Felix Garcia. Knowing that Felix and Kiersten wanted to have a very exciting dance party, Paul brought an extra assistant who then doubled as a dancer on the dance floor. Manny is seen break-dancing at one point and one of the guests couldn’t resist joining him on the floor. After that Felix was breaking it down while everyone circled around him.
DJ Paul Evans was surprised to look up and see Kiersten airborne followed by Felix and grabbed some quick pics as they rode above the crowd in the seated position. MC Jean Jacques, who joined Paul Evans to pump up the crowd, gave this wedding everything he had. It was discovered later that he ended up losing his voice until the following Monday!
Special thanks to Paul’s assistant Bill Burns and Jeans brother Sam for most of the photographs and video below. Congratulations to Kiersten and Felix Garcia on their new life together!
