John Maisano and Jamie Valentine April 25th, 2009

Last Saturday's wedding was so much fun for us. Last September we provided the entertainment for the wedding of Terry & Tasha Maisano. This weekend we were proud to be part of Terry's brother John's (and Jamie's) wedding, which was held at the beautiful Vineyards Country Club. The Maisano family are very close and they treat everyone as if they are part of their own family. It was an honor to again be part of another very special day for them.
We provided the music and mic for John & Jamie's ceremony, which was held outside overlooking the golf course. It was a very beautiful day, clear blue skies, low humidity, yet just a bit windy, but it was very nice and everything went smoothly.

What a great night! The food was delicious, and all 173 guests could have kept partying all night long! The dance floor was packed with people of all ages during the entire reception. John likes techno music, and one of his song requests was to play a remake of a classic by DJ Otzi - "Summer Of '69" (originally by Bryan Adams). It was the first time we played it, and we liked it so much we will try to find a place for it in future music sets.

John & Jamie wanted all their guests to be comfortable and enjoy themselves. Because they provided an open bar, they also provided a limo bus to shuttle their guests back & forth to and from their hotels. A true example of hosts looking out for their guests best interests. Again, we are very honored to have been part of their special day.

Scott & Tina,
just a note to say Thank You from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful job you did at John & Jamie's wedding. Everyone raved about what a good time they had and a huge part of that was due to the two of you and the fantastic job you did!
Not only was the music great
but the pictures were great too! I will be forever grateful!!
I have
already given your business card to a few people here at the hospital
with the highest of recommendations. You guys are phenomenal! Thank you again for being so nice to J & J and for helping to make my son's special day even more special. You guys ROCK!

Adam Rambo and Jennifer Kwetian - April 24th, 2009

Friday's wedding was at the beautiful Marco Marriott Resort. Adam and Jennifer got married on the beach, and we provided the entertainment for their reception. What a beautiful couple! Their first song was "Swayin' to the Music" by Johnny Rivers - and they explained this became their song as sometimes they find themselves slow dancing together in the kitchen!
Their reception was decorated in a beach theme with bright, tropical flowers. The room had a really cool look. It had a huge buffet line and two bars placed back to back - the room looked more like a classy restaurant than a banquet room.

They had a huge wedding party! The party began from the very start as they chose Jagged Edge's "Let's Get Married" remix for their introduction song.

Adam and Jennifer were so relaxed during their special night, and we agree with the other vendors - Jim Jett (photography), Peter Iberserder (videography) and the banquet staff of the Marco Marriott - that the Rambo's were so nice to work with. We are wishing them many years of happiness together!

Jeffrey Katz and Domini Gattoni April 18th, 2009

This past Saturday we celebrated Domini & Jeff's wedding at Bellasera in Naples. Since we haven't been there in a while this was the first time we worked with Jennifer and Darlene in banqueting, and it was definitely a pleasure. There staff was really friendly and efficient, and took great care of all the guests.
Domini and Jeff had a smaller wedding reception, which made it all very cozy and quaint. The room was beautifully decorated with chocolate colored chair covers and decorative table cloths. They chose to have our lighting system and a custom wedding gobo which was illuminated on the dance floor. It all looked great, if I can say so myself. There are pictures in the album of both the lighting and the custom lighted monogram.

What a pretty, original cake! Four layers, each layer was a different flavor. The theme of the reception was butterflies, and no, the Father/Daughter dance wasn't butterfly kisses. ;-) It was "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts. The also had a beautiful ice sculpture in the shape of a butterfly. Inside the sculpture was a luge, in which guests were able to have their martinis poured thru the sculpture instantly cooling their drinks!

Their sense of humor was apparent from the very beginning as the intro song for Domini & Jeff was "Holiday Road" from National Lampoon's (the Griswolds) "Vacation" movie.

Their First dance together was "Someone Like You" by Van Morrisson. This weekend we were working with Tonya Malay Photography (and team). The Videographer was John Manseca from Naples' Original Video Productions, Inc. Both are true wedding professionals and we always enjoy getting the opportunity to work with them.

Thank you email from Dombroski-Tezyk

I just wanted to share this thoughtful thank you email we received from Lindsey Tezyk (now Dombroski)'s mother Audrey Tezyk.

Thanks Audrey for the wonderful compliments!
Tina and Scott Dean

Hey Scott!!!

Anyway - what I wanted was to say THANK YOU to you and Tina. You did a phenomenal job at Lyndsey and Rich's wedding. We had so many compliments on how much fun it was and that had everything to do with you. The music was great and we were happy so many people had such fun dancing and carrying on. The wedding turned out to be all we had hoped for and more.

Of course, if you need recommendations, just say the word and add our names to the list of happy customers!

By the way, we had Easter dinner in North Carolina with Joyce and Ralph Bertsche who are old friends of ours. Joyce was asking how the wedding went, and of course we were bragging. She said Amy's wedding was also great, because they had this super DJ who was a YRD...Joyce said to say hello! You did Amy's wedding at The
Strand, probably 5 years ago).

Give Tina our special thanks for her part, too - we were all very
appreciative of your great work! You'll be our choice once again when
Jill finds her future husband, as well!

Thanks again and again,

Audrey Tezyk (Mother of the Bride)

Rich Dombroski and Lindsey Tezyk April 4th, 2009

Lindsey and Rich were married at the Lely Resort by the waterfall. It was a bit humid, but we all did fine. Cocktail hour was on the terrace, and the reception was inside. There was about 80 guests. Their "First Dance" was "Me and You" by Kenney Chesney. Everyone seemed to have a great time!
