Sheraton Columbus Hotel at Capitol Square

By Night Music DJ and Fizzy Cat Photo Booth | March 28, 2017

We love the Sheraton Columbus Hotel at Capitol Square for a whole bunch of reasons, and we know you will, too!

Take a look, we know you will be excited to consider them for a dinner out, a night on the town, a special meeting, or your once in a lifetime wedding and reception.

Location
Located between The Ohio Statehouse and Columbus Commons, and right next door to The Ohio Theater, this is the perfect central downtown location. Also, it’s just a block or two from the beautiful and so-cool Scioto Mile Park and riverfront, and COSI. Walking distance to nightlife and taprooms, there is always something to look at or to do for you and your guests. They’ll be wowed.

Service
It’s no secret that we love the entire sales and catering team at The Sheraton. They are so accommodating, and truly believe in service with a (GREAT BIG) smile. You will feel so taken care of and appreciated, for sure!

Food
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!

Do yourself a favor, and allow The Sheraton Columbus Hotel to take care of you and your guests!  You’ll be so glad you did. Check out their website here.

Fizzy Cat Photo Booth fun is the open and interactive photo division of Night Music DJs.  We love to DJ events when Fizzy Cat goes with us so we can watch all of the photo booth fun!

Julie and Daniel chose a modern vintage backdrop for fun and memorable pictures, and all of the guests loved it too. This great couple had so many friends and family celebrating – we had a blast with them.

Not only did we have a great night with the photo booth fun, but their guests really knew how to party! We love big dance parties, and this was one of the BEST. Julie and Daniel picked a wide variety of music, and it was spot on.

Westin Columbus Wedding. Maria and Chris

By Night Music DJ and Fizzy Cat Photo Booth | October 27, 2016

Westin Columbus Wedding. What a fabulous night we had celebrating the marriage of Maria & Chris in the gorgeous ballroom of The Westin Columbus. These two love birds had so many unique and special touches to add to their reception, and the guests loved them all!

Night Music loved working with artist Liz Lindstrom, who traveled from Chattanooga to capture the reception by making a beautiful painting during the evening. Guests loved watching the painting progress, and we know Liz delivered a delightful keepsake. Check out her website.

Westin Columbus Wedding

Of course, The Westin always provides the finest in food and service. And, Maria and Chris made sure no one went hungry late into the party, because treats in the form of a Graeter’s Ice Cream bar and late night Sliders and Tater Tots kept the dancers fueled and happy.

Check out this video, and you’ll get a small hint of this wonderful celebration.

Grand Entrance ~ How Sweet It Is by Michael Buble
First Dance ~ You Make it Real by James Morrison
Bride & Brother Dance ~ You’ve Got A Friend by James Taylor
Groom & Mother Dance ~ Child of Mine by Carole King

Pianist Matt Munhall rocked the cocktail hour.

Thanks to our friends at the Westin Columbus for their hospitality!
