Following the pronouncement, Samantha & Anthony made their exit to “Everlasting Love” by Natalie Cole. Prior to the start of the reception, guests mingled and enjoyed cocktails at the rear of the mansion while the wedding party was whisked away by their photographer; Studio Ayla, who captured all the days’ great moments. Showtime! The wedding party made their grand entrance to “Now That We Found Love’ by Heavy D to great applause from family and friends ready to celebrate.

Abby and Kofi were married at the beautiful Whetstone Park of Roses on June 17th, 2017. In spite of the heat that accompanied the day, Abby, Kofi and company came to celebrate and the dance floor hummed with energy throughout the night. Their celebration was a mix of select African tracks and R & B, dated and current and guests felt free to express themselves; often putting their own spin on the beats. Thank you so much Abby & Kofi for allowing me to be a part of your day. All my best!
On Saturday, April 22nd, 2017, Amelia and Weston were united in marriage at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. Following the nuptials, they rolled up in style by limo to the Columbus Cultural Arts Center to celebrate with family and friends. It was a brisk April day, but that didn’t stop guests from enjoying adult spirits in the paved outdoor courtyard while others took in the art on display to pass the time while awaiting the arrival of the bridal party. Bridal party members made their grand entrance to “Can’t Stop The Feeling” by JT, while Amelia and Weston crashed the room to “The Walker” by Fitz & The Tantrums. The bride’s father then delivered a nostalgic yet touching speech, offered a prayer of thanks and then dinner service began.
For their first dance, Amelia and Weston embraced to “My One and Only Love” by Nancy Wilson. Following the Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances, Alumni members from both OSU and the College of Wooster assembled on the dance floor to respectively sing “Carmen Ohio” and “Scotland The Brave”. The dance floor then opened for all guests who bumped to music from a variety of decades; even forming their own conga line to “Love Train” by the O’Jays that nearly stretched into the next county. Just shy of 10:00 pm, every guest joined the Bride and Groom on the dance floor to bid them farewell to Billy Joel’s “Piano Man”. Following their Uber exit, guests continued to dance the night away. Thank you Amelia and Weston for extending me the honor and privilege to be your DJ! Photographs complements of LZ photography.

On Saturday, August 27th, Ashley & Patrick were united in marriage at the Taylor Mansion in Columbus, Ohio. The planned start time for the ceremony was 5pm, but as threatening skies loomed overhead, all was delayed by 1-hour as torrential rain and high winds swept through the grounds. The storm did not dampen the mood and in fact, washed away the heat of the afternoon giving way to a beautiful ceremony. Post-ceremony, guests gathered at the rear of the mansion for drinks and light fare while I rolled out a good mix of light, upbeat music to set the stage for the night ahead. The wedding party entered into “Bring Em’ Out” by TI and groomsmen were leapfrogging over bridesmaids as they made their way into the reception area. When Ashley and Patrick entered, the music faded and they embraced for the first dance; “Die a Happy Man” by Thomas Rhett. Guests then enjoyed a 5-star meal and then brought an unparalleled level of energy to the dance floor that did not let up until the last note leveled off. My complements to Kylienoellephotography who provided the above pictures and who went above and beyond to capture the best moments of the day. All My Best! Ashley & Patrick
On this perfect July day with comfortable temperatures, Maria and Jordan said their “I Do’s” on the steps outside the Taylor Mansion. The lavishly landscaped grounds set the stage for the perfect backdrop for their ceremony. Following the ceremony, guests transitioned to the rear of the mansion to enjoy cocktails and good cheer while the wedding party remained for pictures. Crystal Jo of Crystaljofoto was a real pleasure to work with and she was ready at the helm to capitalize on the best photo ops throughout Maria and Jordan’s day. The wedding party was introduced to “You Make My Dreams Come True” by Hall & Oats and Maria & Jordan entered gracefully into their first dance; “I Could Never Promise You” by Don Francisco. Their first dance gave way to dinner, toasts and an energy packed dance floor for much of the evening. For their final song, Maria & Jordan requested “In The City” by the Eagles. All of their guests joined them on the dance floor for this send off to spread their love for this truly amazing couple. Thank you Maria & Jordan for allowing me to be a part of your day!

We will certainly recommend Jeff for future services to friends and business associates! THANKS A LOT JEFF! You were awesome and very accommodating to us and our guests! Todd & Ken
Joe & Tricia had their destination wedding on Captiva Island on April 23rd and celebrated with friends and family upon their return in the beautiful Venitian Room at LaScala. When the time arrived for the bridal party to be introduced, they stormed the room to “Feel This Moment” by Pitbull and Christina Aguilera. Joe and Tricia then embraced for their first dance as a married couple in Ohio to “I Found You” by Alabama Shakes. After mingling with friends and family members who were unable to make the trip to Florida for the wedding, the groom’s brother and Best Man gave a very heartfelt toast. Since this was more of a casual, celebratory affair, Joe and Tricia did not engage many of the traditional formalities. Instead, they chose to be fun and willing participants in the Wedding Shoe Game and as game show host, I fielded a series of fun questions to determine just how well the beautiful couple knows one another. The evening then gave way to a night of dancing. All My Best Tricia and Joe!

Jeff was absolutely wonderful! We had such a great time dancing at our reception. Jeff was a great announcer, very interactive, had great new and fun ideas (serenading a song instead of clinking glasses) and was able to keep the party going. I loved the new ways he got the whole crowd to participate and have fun. He also went above and beyond to help manage the ceremony as well by instructing everyone where to stand and when to walk. I was not expecting that much help, but he helped everything run smoothly. He was awesome at communicating with us throughout the reception and being flexible with the schedule. I had such a wonderful and positive experience and will definitely recommend to future brides! By far the best vendor I worked with for my wedding.
