Joyful in June, Boston Store Wedding Reception
Ryan & Hannah, hosted their June Wedding Reception at the Historic & Beautiful Boston Store in the heart of downtown Erie. They were delightful to work with. Erie Wedding & Event Services was initially contacted and hired by Hannah’s mom about 10 months before the wedding. We were familiar with the family from our local church. It was an honor to be a part of this day.
Our Wedding Coordinator talked with the couple numerous times via email and text messaging as they began planning their reception. They were able to plan their wedding long distance by using our Interactive Online Planning Forms. Every time they updated the forms we were notified and could go over what they wanted. We also met with them about 3 weeks before the wedding to discuss their timeline for the night. During that meeting, we learned that the groom was having some trouble selecting music. We were able to suggest some songs for them. In the end, Ryan trusted us to choose a few ourselves for their special moments. We had everything we needed ready prior to their wedding. Part of our planning process is to communicate with the other wedding vendors. We sent the couples photographer, Penny Shaut, a copy of the timeline a week before the wedding.
Overcoming the Historic Challenge of a Boston Store Wedding.
Ryan & Hannah’s wedding venue itself is definitely a challenge. The Boston Store venue is a long hallway/lobby of a well-known retail store. This venue was once the center of activity in Erie Pennsylvania. There is a locally famous phrase “Meet Me Under the Clock”. People would meet under the beautiful clock in the lobby, which is still there, for lunch and shopping dates. The hall boasts marble floors and pillars, electricity is limited, and the lighting is very low. In order to meet the challenges of this particular hall, you need to have an expert sound engineer controlling the levels of the sound equipment. We also needed extra electrical cords to bring power to our area and the Uplighting was necessary not only for ambiance but also to provide extra lighting for the guests to be comfortable in the venue.
Our Expert DJ/Technician had to ensure that the sound levels were comfortable for everyone while battling the size, shape and building materials of the room. He was also well prepared for the limited availability of electricity. He was able to prepare for the challenges of this room by doing a site visit prior to their wedding.
As I mentioned before our Brilliant Uplighting was just the touch the hall needed to stay lit and create the ambiance. Our technician used the couple’s colors, Coral & Blue, to create a gorgeous lighting display. A plus side to our Wedding Up-Lighting is that they are wireless and battery operated so power outlets are not an issue.
Choosing The Right Music for Your Wedding Reception
The Bride & Groom also had specific music tastes they wished us to adhere to for their celebration which created just the kind of challenge we like. Our Disc Jockey had to find music that suited their tastes that the guests would enjoy and would keep the energy in the hall going. In the end, we were able to create a playlist of music to fit their needs and keep their guests happy. Erie Wedding & Event Services has Interactive Online Planning tools with a playable link to our database of music! You can also find a top wedding song lists right on our website. In addition, we offer an online Guest Music Suggestion Link we were able to provide Hannah & Ryan so that the guests were able to visit our website BEFORE the reception and make song requests for the night. The mixture of our experience, the couples music tastes, and the guests’ requests created a successful night.
