Angel + Dan’s Fishing Themed Wedding Celebration at the Bridgewood Resort in Neenah

picturememory

Last Friday night, Angel Steckbauer & Dan Heilmann tied the knot, and celebrated with us at the Bridgewood Resort in Neenah, which is always one of our favorite places to play.

Angel & Dan are big fishing hobbyists, so they naturally went with a fishing theme complete with a cocktail hour full of “fishing songs.”    I love it!  What a way to get the guests in the mood.    Check out the complete list of “fishing songs.”

Guests were treated to an ecclectic mix of Angel and Dan’s favorites during dinner, which included favorites from The Dave Matthews Band, Lindsey Sterling, Mumford & Son, John Mayer and some bluegrass music.

Song Highlights:

Introductions- Under the Bridge- Red Hot Chili Peppers
First Dance- Crazy Game of Poker- OAR
Grand March- Different songs for each couple
Bouquet Toss- Blurred Lines- Robin Thicke
Garter Toss- Eye of the Tiger- Survivor
Last Song- Closing Time- Semisonic

Following dinner, guests were treated to a “gift” from Dan & Angel in honor of their fishing themed wedding.    They showed the “Youtube Clip”, “Here Fishy Fishy” from Sesame Street, it was fantastic!

Guests also had to go “Fishing in the pond” for a fish, and kiss for the number of seconds on the fish, then they would reciprocate the kiss for the guests.   Very Creative!

Guests danced all night to a bunch of requests, and some of the other hits included kids interaction, a candy toss, and the bridal party scavenger hunt!

Angel and Dan, I wish you both nothing but the best, thanks for letting me be a part of your special day!

Smores Bar, Anna + Shaun's Wedding, The Bull Sheboygan

Guests loved the smores bar and candy bar treats for dessert!  I especially loved the Smores bar, where you could actually roast your marshmellows inside on an open flame.   How cool is that?

Following the bridal party scavenger hunt, and shoe game, we had a ton of requests, and plenty of variety from oldies to current music, and a ton of country favorites in between.     The guests were on the dancefloor all night long!    Tons of FUN!

Jason + Katie Licht’s Fun Wedding Reception at the Paper Valley Hotel

This past weekend we had a RARE triple header, a wedding on Friday night, Saturday night, and Sunday evening!    First up, Jason & Katie’s wedding celebration at the Paper Valley Hotel in Appleton.    Joy Kubat and her staff were amazing as always!  If you are looking for a place for a Fox Valley wedding, the Paper Valley Hotel has it all.

Technology is truly awesome!    Jason & Katie found me through weddingwire.com, and booked us after their web meeting back in the Fall. Jason and Katie live on the West Coast, so Friday evening was the first time I had actually met them in person!

We decked out the room in Purple Uplighting, which truly transforms the room.

It was a FUN, FUN night filled with plenty of energy.    Katie & Jason were open to creative ideas, and that’s exactly what we did to engage their guests in a night of FUN!

Reception Song Highlights:

Immediately following introductions before dinner, guests were immersed with a fun kissing activity, instead of glass clinking, we drew names of couples, who then had kiss, and Katie & Jason would then mirror their kiss.   So much FUN!  Though I must admit, it got a little out of control as I think we litterally read everyone’s name on the list!

Following dinner, we got the kids pumped up for FUN with about 20-30 minutes of kids interaction and games including hula hoop FUN, NASCAR speed racers, and a freeze dance.    Then it was onto the fun with the bridal party, as we created a bridal party scavenger hunt for the bridal party and guests, elimating chairs one by one, so much fun and so many good laughs!  The guests loved it.   We closed out the dinner portion with the shoe game aka “Newlywed game” where we learned how much Katie & Jason really knew each other, and it seems that they know each other quite well!

I love the little suprises.    We created a short video for Jason & Katie, and played it on a loop throughout the entire cocktail and dinner hour.      After their first dance, Katie danced with her dad, and we surprised her with a scrolling montage of pictures of her with her dad from when she was growing up, very sentimental, and a HUGE surprise!

It was a fun night, the dance floor was packed all night!    Thank you Jason & Katie for letting me be a part of your special night!
