Congratulations Kimberly and Tony

This Reception featured the colors of black, white, and touches of pink. It was so pretty, especially in historic Ashton Villa. The tables had black cloths and the chairs had white satin covers with black satin ties. The high/low centerpieces consisted of floral arrangements with curly willow or tall candelabras. All of them had candles around the bottom. To add the final perfect touches, we had eight amber Uplights along the walls and a custom GOBO monogram on the dance floor. The room was beautiful!!

Kimberly’s cake consisted of marble cupcakes with a small layer on top to save. Tony’s chocolate cake had the Texas A&M seal on top, which was perfect since the couple both attended A&M. Of course, we played the Aggie War Hymn during the dancing, and that got a good crowd on the dance floor.

Kimberly and Tony had a great candy buffet for their guests, which was a big hit. The guests had fun laughing, dancing and eating until it came time for the last dance and the exit. Tony and Kimberly made their way to a limo as the guests threw tiny heart-shaped rice and wished them well. Congratulations Tony and Kimberly!!

Another Great Time with Mainland Bank

This was our third year in a row providing the musical entertainment for the bank’s annual Preferred Customer Banquet. They really love their customers and it shows! The guests enjoyed a wonderful dinner and dessert followed by gambling at the casino tables. Near the end of the night, everyone traded in their winnings for tickets, which go into the drawing for great prizes. The banquet is always a lot of fun and it’s nice to see Mainland Bank showing their customers how much they appreciate them. We had a great time and hope to see you all again next year!

Congratulations Tim and Michelle

This Wedding Reception was a special treat for us because we provided DJ services for Michelle’s sister a year and a half ago, and it was so nice to see the family again. The colors for this wedding were navy and ivory with touches of beige and pink. It was really pretty with all the vintage/rustic accents. There were so many details I don’t know if I could even name them all, but they included a thumbprint tree for the guestbook, a framed piece of burlap with the couple’s last initial on it, a table of little brown bags of cookies for the guests to take home (they had a doily with a tiny clothespin at the top – too cute!), a chalkboard at the bar listing the available drinks, two moss covered hearts with burlap ribbon saying Mr. and Mrs. tied to Tim’s and Michelle’s chairs, a cute little vintage-looking wood couple on top of the cake, high/low floral centerpieces with old-fashioned bottles and more. Combine all those touches with a historic ballroom, and it was perfect!

Michelle’s cake had a vintage look as well. It had three pale blush-colored stacked tiers with delicate white floral accents. Tim’s cake was another story. It was a replica of a Star Destroyer from Star Wars. It was pretty cool! There was an Anniversary Dance with the longest married couple in the room being married 56 years (awesome!), a Money Dance, and more fun until the end.

Tim and Michelle were showered with bubbles as they ran to their car and drove off to their new life. Congratulations to both of you!!

Ringing in the New Year at Bay Oaks Country Club

This country club loves their members, and it shows. They had amazing food stations for dinner, ranging from all kinds of Australian seafood (shrimp, oysters, scallops, etc.) to French cuisine, to Spanish tapas, to Swiss chocolates for dessert, and more. Everyone loved it! After their incredible meal, the dance music started up and we partied until midnight. We counted down to the New Year, played Auld Lang Syne, everyone kissed and cheered and the dancing continued. And then the American buffet then opened up, with black eyed peas, cabbage, and other goodies for everyone to enjoy. As 1:00 rolled around, the guests enjoyed a last dance and headed off to enjoy the New Year. Happy New Year to everyone at Bay Oaks Country Club!
