This Beautiful Winter Wonderland Wedding took place at the Scottish Rite Club in Erie Pennsylvania in January. Chris & Julia’s theme and color scheme allowed us to create a winter feel inside the venue without bringing in the cold.
How We Created a Winter Wonderland Wedding
Our planning began with the couple about 8 months before their wedding day. We met in person several times, emailed and the couple used our Interactive Online Planning Forms. Our Wedding Coordinator talked to Julia about a few special surprises we helped execute. Julia wanted to honor her relationship with her mom. The bride’s brother created a collage of photos throughout brides life and during the reception, we put it to music and played it on the halls video screen. It was a very touching moment. The song the bride chose was “Julia” by the Beatles. It was a song her mom had sung to her growing up. When the video collage wasn’t playing we showcased the Motion Monogram our design technician had custom created just for the couple. It highlighted their names and wedding date with snowflakes gently falling in the background.
Winter Weather in Erie, PA
The weather is always a little tricky in the winter and it does make travel a little more difficult. However, we always take the extra time to travel just in case. It’s also a little more of a challenge to bring our gear into the hall in the snow. The hall is one that we work at frequently, sometimes several weekends in a row. So we were very comfortable with the setup. We did provide two services we had not yet provided at the Scottish Rite Club. That made this wedding a learning experience for us as well. The Motion Monogram which required us to hook into the hall’s video system required some additional set up. We also brought our Photo Booth along for the first time and had the chance to set it up in the large lobby area.
Winter Wedding Lighting & Effects
For this Winter Wonderland Wedding, we were able to provide that Motion Monogram that no other DJ in our area is able to offer at this time. It was a HUGE part of their day. With the Brillant Blue Up lighting, It was the perfect finishing touch to pull together their Winter Themed Reception.
Three of our Team Members played a role in Bride and Groom’s wedding. Our Wedding Coordinator worked alongside the couple every step of the way to ensure that their wedding reflected their wishes. She also ensured that the timeline flowed smoothly for the other vendors and the Bridal Party. Our DJ/ Sound and Lighting Technical Expert not only created the perfect sound experience for everyone to enjoy, he also customized both their Motion Monogram AND their Photo Strip Design to polish of their Winter Themed Experience. Our friendly Photo Booth attendant assisted guests with the booth by explaining the process and helping to create the couple’s Memory Keepsake scrapbook that we sent home with them at the end of the wedding reception.
Planning makes a Perfect Erie Wedding
The process took about 8 months all together with the day of services taking about 10 hours total with travel, set up, performance and tear down. Careful planning ahead of time can make every wedding successful no matter what time of year you’re hosting it.
