Danielle & Chris’ Reception DowntownPaul Evans
Danielle and Chris were referred to DJ Taz Sellers by friends who had Taz at their own wedding and were told that “If you want the party of a lifetime hire DJ Taz.” Taz met with Danielle and Chris and started the process of helping them plan their dream event. He consulted with them on the design and look of the lighting as well as effects that would deliver the atmosphere desired. The final design seen below included 24 wireless RGBAW uplights around the massive Independence ballroom at the Marriott Downtown, two 6.5’ lit totems with intelligent moving head fixtures atop each totem, Dual H2O water effect lights providing a canopy of light on the ceiling above the dance floor and finally dual high powered LED wash lights to flood the dance floor action.
Right after introductions, the floor was packed with 300 guests ready to party. In the usual Jewish tradition, the crowd reveled in honoring Danielle and Chris with the Hora.
Following that dance set, the crowd was invited back to their seats so that Jim Webber and Arnish from the Marriott could put down an amazing dinner. While eating dinner Danielle and Chris had no idea of the BIG surprise waiting in the wings, coordinated by the bridesmaids. Danielle and Chris, like many true Philadelphians, bleed green as gigantic Eagles fans so only the bridesmaids and Taz knew what was about to happen. Taz got on the mic and asked “With us being in the city tonight I just have to ask how many people bleed green that are here tonight?” The crowd responded with a roar and “fly eagles fly” was played in the background as the crowd sang the fight song. But then Taz announced “I know that Danielle and Chris are mega fans so I don’t think just the fight song is special enough for this wedding night. Ladies and gentlemen please welcome the Eagles Drum Line Pep Band!” And with that the crowd went insane as the drum line marched into the room and proceeded to perform a 15 minute set.
Once the drum line was done the dance floor exploded with amazing music for the remainder of the evening.
Special Thanks to Jim Weber and Arnish of the Marriott Downtown and their amazing staff along with Michelle of Lafayette Hill Studios for the amazing images
