A Rockin’ ReceptionPaul Evans
Hillary and Dennis chose a beautiful day for a garden ceremony at the Dupont Country Club, followed by cocktails on the adjoining patio and dancing in the Crystal Grand Ballroom. Hillary contacted DJ Paul Evans to add sound service for her ceremony. She had hired musicians but wanted two additional microphones with amplification. Paul assured Hillary he could accommodate her vision by providing remote sound, a lapel mic on the officiant that would also pick up the bride and groom as well as a wireless handheld mic on an adjustable stand for the readers. The plan was executed perfectly making for musicians and readers alike to sound loud and clear.
The Bridal Party was a lively bunch as you can see from the images below. They entered the reception with inflatable instruments and flashing LED glasses. Notably, when Hillary and Dennis walked in, the entire bridal party jammed out on their instruments to ‘Shook Me All Night Long’ (the whole song) before Hillary and Dennis had their first dance. Hillary had a wide-eyed expression on most of the evening, conveying that this bride came to party!
The Dupont Country Club has a large wooden dance floor to accommodate lots of dancers, great acoustics, and a friendly well-trained staff. The ballroom has an overlooking balcony from which to throw the bouquet from as well as to project a custom monogram down onto the ballroom dance floor. DuPont Country Club offers a wide area between their golf course and garden to hold ceremony indoor/outdoor cocktail hour and reception. You could say it is a multifaceted location ideal for a large and scenic wedding celebration like Hillary and Dennis had.
