Emily and Jordan. A Featured Columbus Wedding Reception at Vue.

By Night Music DJ and Fizzy Cat Photo Booth | May 22, 2017

What a truly FUN Columbus Wedding Reception with Emily and Jordan!

We were so happy to assist these newlyweds in achieving their number one goal for their Columbus wedding reception – FUN!  Everyone had an absolute blast!

The reception kicked off with so much fun right from the start. 

Here’s what happened. For the Grand Entrance and introductions, the bride and groom choose a different song for each announced pair, including the parents. They also gave us surprise nicknames for each member of the wedding party. This was a big hit. They used snippets of these songs. Sweet Child of Mine. Big Poppa. Party Like a Rock Star. Get Freaky. Let Me Clear My Throat. Jump On It. Cotton Eyed Joe. Sirius.

Once all of the members of the wedding party made their way in and to the dancefloor, and the bride and groom joined them, they all performed a special wedding party dance to Dance With Me Tonight by Olly Murs

After that dance, with the wedding party and all of the guests circling the dance floor, Emily and Jordan enjoyed their first solo dance as husband and wife to Who I Am With You by Chris Young

From those fun, exciting and sweet first moments, into dinner and toasts, parent dances, a couple of Irish jigs as a surprise for the bride, and a packed dancefloor all night long … the night came to an end too quickly with a everyone on the dancefloor singing along to Piano Man by Billy Joel and then all going outside for a beautiful  SPARKLER EXIT.

We loved helping create this Columbus wedding reception perfection along with superstars Liz from Vue, Andrea from Metro Cuisine, and katie lee photography. Congratulations Emily and Jordan!

LEADING. WITH PURPOSE.
INAUGURATION OF DR. ELIZABETH L. PAUL AS
THE 16TH PRESIDENT OF CAPITAL UNIVERSITY

 

Inaugural Reception, The Capital Center Field House
We were so excited and honored to be chosen to participate in the inauguration of Dr. Elizabeth Paul, the 16th President of Capital University.

It was a dream to work with the talented event staff at Capital, including Nicole and Era. They thought of everything to make the week’s worth of activities happen smoothly and memorably. The entire week was designed with purpose, and we loved all of the taglines, including Connecting, Partnering, Uniting, Learning, Mobilizing, Leading and Creating.

PURPLE POWER! Everyone got to pose in a photo with (the virtual) Dr. Paul, and some lucky people got to pose with the REAL Dr. Paul! All of the fun purple props added a lot of flare to the photo festivities.

Thanks Capital for giving us the chance to meet so many wonderful students, faculty, staff and alumni. We send our very best wishes and congratulations to Sweet 16, Dr. Elizabeth Paul!

Yum!  Superstar Chef Matt Smith, was awarded the prestigious ACF award in 2015 for Columbus’ Chef of the year.  He and his staff work hard to provide the very best in fresh and fine dining. If you’re ever in need of a Columbus foodie night – stop by the Plaza restaurant, and your view of the gorgeous fountain and patio will enhance the delicious cocktails and dinner.  (Try the Blackberry Mojito – you will not be disappointed!)

Rooms
The recently upgraded rooms at The Sheraton are so quiet and comfortable, with options galore. Not only double and kings, but a club level and suites. Presidential Suite anyone? Sure – you deserve it!
