Mark Williams & Christina Stoneburner 10.10.2009

Christina & Mark's wedding reception was held at the Royal Poinciana Golf Club, which is an elegant, private club in Naples. It was a pleasure working with Patrick and the staff on Saturday.

Christina and Mark had seen us at a few weddings before. We were glad to be a part of their plans. Christina had a clear vision of what she wanted her reception to be like - she wanted all 215 guests to remember her reception as being fun!

As guests entered the large beautiful room, they all took notice of the decorated five tiered wedding cake displayed in the middle of the dance floor.

After the guests were seated, the Black Eyed Peas' song "I Gotta Feeling" helped kick off the evening as each couple of the Bridal Party danced into the reception. Christina and Mark followed by showing their moves as they came in to Flo Rida's "Right Round." They went straight over to their wedding cake, cutting and sharing a piece of it together.

The cake was whisked away by the staff, and Mark and Christina took over the floor with their choreographed First Dance to Michael Buble's "Everything." If they were nervous about performing their dance, it didn't show... as they performed their dance flawlessly. Next Christina shared the floor with her dad to Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely." Mark followed by dancing with his mother to Rascal Flatt's "My Wish."

It was Christina's vision to have the formalities completed at the beginning, to leave more time for dancing later. Royal Poinciana has a large dance floor, and the crowd packed it from the opening song until the end of the night!

Michelle Reed Photography and AMC Video helped preserve the night's memories. At the end of the reception, both Mark & Christina thanked us for helping make a great night, as they said they had a blast - and so did we.

Gulf Coast HS Homecoming 09-29-09

After a week's worth of celebration including their football team's rally to victory over the Immokalee Indians, the students of Gulf Coast High School were ready to have some fun!

Their Homecoming Dance took place in their double gym on campus. The school had been transformed into a circus big top, as 1179 students dressed up for their special evening.

Having nearly 1200 kids meant being able to provide a lot of sound - and to have a flood of great sound, we had to bring in some extra speakers. There's a trick to spreading the sound out across a large area, and after some afternoon tweaking the gym was ready for the party.

It was a great night! There was a mix of music, including top forty, new hip-hop, and some old school - the crowd went wild and some students showed off their hot moves during Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean."

The dance floor area was packed all night! It's great when you can keep the students and the school staff happy - and we did. We've gotten several compliments on how much fun it was, and it was fun for us, too!
