Four Great Weddings This Weekend!

The weekend is over, four great weddings to show and four 5 star ratings!

Starting Friday afternoon we setup for two weddings at the wonderful Summit club in Tulsa, working with the summit club staff is ALWAYS a pleasure! They are very accommodating and always friends and willing to help with any need. If your getting married I would say CALL Abby and talk with her about their options, this is one venue that always strives for the very best for your wedding and they do care about the quality of the work they do for each event. Saturday all fell into place with four exceptional weddings and receptions another wedding at the beautiful Dresser mansion and I was in Ponca city at the Marland mansion to help Brian and Kellie Mccarthy celebrate with 200 of their closest family and friends until the clock struck at midnight with a package dance floor many tears of joy with a great toast by the best man and Maid of honor (who's wedding I did last year)..great family a SUPER father daughter dance...well more below :)

Jay and Cassandra said I do in May and wanted to celebrate with Family and friends here in Tulsa. They have been planning this reception for many months and it came together without a hitch(no pun intended) Saturdayt night with horse and carriage rides around downtown, beautiful weather, a 30th floor view at the Summit club, great summit club food, staff and dancing. Empire lighting design accented the room with table pin spots on each table, dance floor monogram, cake spotlights and uplighting in eggplan around the room. Dancing ended around 11:30 with many happy faces ready to head to some local hotspots downtown for the after party. Karl did a great job and as our newest staff member pulled off a fabulouse evening.

Ryan and Hillary Mottern said I do with a great ceremony that took place outside in the coutyard of the dresser mansion. We provided the wireless microphones so all the guests could hear the vows, a ceremony setup outside behind the alter so the sound would be natural, hookups for the singer and guitarist. Inside the Dresser we provided red/white lights to bring in the colors of their favorite football team(OU) and the colors of the table scapes put together by Erica at Erica Weddings. Paul rocked the house and kept the party moving along with help from Erica and her great staff all night. They had to kick the party off the dance floor with guests ready to go at 11:00! Great wedding, great reception and big contratulations to all!

I have been working with Brian from afar as they live in Dallas and only come to Oklahoma every so often and most of the time its past Tulsa into Ponca City, when I did meet with them a few months ago they said they wanted FUN! They also didn't want any "hokey" wedding songs at the wedding. We kept it modern fun and involved everyone including the catering staff! The party was host to over 200 guests, the 2nd level of the marland mansion was decked out in great colors. The grand entrance to Beyonce Crazy in Love with each member doing their own version of dancing :)

Brian and Kellie had their first dance in the grand ballroom of the marland mansion followed up by a GREAT father daughter dance with a VERY excited Father to My girl(video to come soon so check back)..Brian had a very special dance with his mother and the party started! We danced until 11:15 and they were sent off to sparklers and many cheers!

Great weekend and we are now preparing for more weddings this weekend! Congratulations to ALL that put their trust in our companies and we hope to be able to add many more names to this blog!

Congratulations to you two! FAB wedding at the German American Society last Saturday!
Here is a GREAT email they just sent to me from their honeymoon in Hawaii.


Last night, The German American Society underwent a major transformation and we were completely blown away by the beautiful looked like a completely different place, just what we were wanting!! You did an excellent job moving everything along and were awesome in getting people out on the dance floor and having a great time. Your staff did an excellent job too, working the guests and getting everyone involved. We just wanted to say how much we appreciated everything you did for us and were glad you made this special day that much more special for us. You will be highly recommended by us for any upcoming occasions/weddings!! It was just PERFECT!

Thanks again!
