Corey & Rhianna 3.11.2016

Rhianna and Corey chose the Naples Beach Hotel for their Wedding venue for a very special reason.  Her parents were also married there! The Ceremony took place on Penthouse Beach at 5:30.  Once married they wanted us to play Mendelssohn ....then (custom edit) scratch into "Going Down For Real"!

The reception followed at the Naples Beach Hotel at Coconut Grove area on the sand. 

The First Dance Song was "Amazed" by Lonestar.  Father / Daughter "It Won't Be Like This For Long" by Darius Rucker.  Mother / Son "Simple Man".

Guests enjoyed the music and wandered between Coconut Grove and the Bar area.  We adore this couple and wish them happy honeymooning in Jamaica!  I'm sure we'll be seeing them again soon as we enjoy our jeep adventures around town!

Cameron & Monica 02.18.2016


What a gorgeous time of year for an outside wedding!  Cam and Monica held their wedding ceremony in the sand on the Penthouse Beach at the Naples Beach Hotel.  Cocktail hour was enjoyed directly after, right on the beach.  Many of the guests were from the north east and by the looks of it they all were certainly enjoying the warm tropical climate (it was 31 degrees in Boston at that time).

Congratulations! #1 Song On BILLBOARD

We want to congratulate our good friend Janice Robinson, who is currently holding the #1 Song on Billboard's Dance Chart 2015 - "There Must Be Love"!  Great news for a wonderful person.

Last spring, she teamed up with International DJ David Morales, who had a song he had written - and only one person he thought of to sing it.  Janice spent the weekend recording with David and have more hits coming.

Janice was the lead singer in the 90s ultra dance hit "Dreamer" of the group Livin' Joy.  We still love that song.

Janice has opened for Tina Turner, and has also toured with the Backstreet Boys. 

She now resides in Naples, and still has an incredible voice!  She is such a positive spiritual person.

Way to go Janice!  Wishing you many more successes!

Billy & Kayla Saturday 05.23.15

Kayla met Billy eight years ago as she moved into her new apartment in Gainesville.  They actually met the very first night she moved in, and they have been inseparable ever since.

They are such a great couple... they compliment each other so well.  Simply put, they are a happy couple.  And together they face many challenges, yet keep moving happily forward.  Billy works in West Palm Beach, while Kayla is in the doctorate program at University of Miami. An hour and a half commute doesn't interrupt their lives together though....

Their latest challenge was on Thursday morning, the day Billy was leaving for Naples for their wedding.... Their beloved dog had a misstep, and tore its ACL...  !  So sad, but with the help of a great vet and great friends, everything is well for all.

Ninety guests gathered at the Hilton Naples to celebrate with them.  It has been a while since we were at the Hilton, and we enjoyed catching up with Ashley and her assistant Tess.  Kayla and Billy have raved about how great Ashley has been in their preparation.  The ballroom looked elegantly beautiful, as the white covered chairs were accented with a blue sash, and the room was uplit with cool white led lighting.

The reception began at 8:30 pm, as the wedding party was introduced to Sam and Dave's classic "Hold On I'm Coming."  Kayla and Billy shared their first dance as husband and wife to Etta James' "At Last."  Dinner was ready in a timely manner, a reflection of the excellent service at the Hilton Naples.

After salads, toasts were made by both sets of parents, the matron of honor, the best man, and then Kayla & Billy shared a few words as they thanked everyone for sharing in the day.
 Thank you 41 Photo and Video for sharing this pic with us!

 

A photo booth was set up by the videographers Joe & DeAnne of 41 Photo and Video.  Guests had a blast with that, as well as enjoying delicious cupcakes for dessert.

The party started quickly, as dancing began on the large dance floor.  Guests had fun as the dancing continued on until nearly 1:00 am.   We were so happy to be part of their wedding day.  Congratulations!

Brandon & Neissa 6.6.2015

 
 


Another beautiful young couple we had the honor of celebrating with!  These two met in High School their Sophmore year and now they've gotten married!  They've already been through some testing times which only proves how happy they're going to be together.

Brandon & Neissa chose to get married and have the reception at Laplaya Beach Resort here in Naples, Florida.  We always enjoy working there with all the staff.  They are like family to us and always do such a great job for all these couples.

Along with music we also provided Neissa & Brandon with purple uplighting and a Monogram Projection for the dance floor.  We enjoyed as always working with the photographers, Karl & Nannette from Luminaire Foto.  They always do a great job!

In attendance the newly weds had approximately 57 guests that traveled mostly from Pittsburg, PA.  We started off introducing the Bridal Attendants including the Parents to "Party Rock Anthem" by LMFAO.  Brandon & Neissa chose a song very special to them that we edited to be just right.  "Give It All" by Train.  Their First Dance song was also by Train, "Marry Me".

When we met with Neissa & Brandon before their wedding date they told us they that they love to dance and wanted a lot of it.  They're Honeymooning on a "Joint Honeymoon" to Sandals in Jamaica with another couple that was also recently married.  I'm sure they're all going to have a great time talking about all the fun they've had!  Congratulations!

Chris & Sarah Friday 05.22.15





Chris & Sarah met each other a year and a half ago, and have been inseparable since.  Family means so much to the couple, and Friday signified the joining of two families, as forty guests gathered for the celebration.

Chris and Sarah planned the wedding from their home in Illinois, taking a few trips to visit with Sarah's parents in Naples.  They chose the Naples Bay Resort as their destination location, which is a beautiful spot on the water in downtown Naples.

We were so glad to see Lexi again - she is the fun, professional and energetic event coordinator at Naples Bay Resort.  She makes things so easy for everyone.

Chris and Sarah were married outside on the patio, which is on the water of Naples Bay.  Rain was threatening, as dark clouds began to surround the planned ceremony.  With a little luck, and likely some influence of loved ones who have passed on, the storms skirted the celebration, leaving us with only a few sparse raindrops.  The ceremony was beautiful, as Sarah and Chris exchanged their own written vows, as Sarah's brother Kevin performed as the officiate.

Cocktail hour was enjoyed outside on the patio overlooking the water, as guests enjoyed upbeat sounds from Michael Buble and other artists.

Dinner was served inside the dining room, which has recently been remodeled allowing a lot more usable space.  After their meal guests were happily up and out of their seats, dancing to a mix of music from all generations.  Chris and Sarah said they wanted a fun, dance party - and they told us they got exactly what they were hoping for.

Best wishes to Chris and Sarah - what a wonderful way to begin your lives together!
