Wedding Games

A perfect way to make you reception fun is by playing wedding games. My favorite game is the Shoe Game, because it is very simple and undeniably hilarious! This game is a great way for guests to get to know both Bride and Groom better. Here is how you play it:

Place two chairs back to back on the dance floor.
Remove both of your shoes.
Trade a shoe with your new spouse so that you’re holding one of each.
Have your Edge Sight and Sound DJ ask a series of questions about the two of you and your relationship.
After each question, hold up the shoe of the person you think has the best answer to the question.

This is a great way to show your guests how much you both know about each other!

It's engagement season!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!
Why you ask?
It's engagement season! Here are 5 things you need to do after he pops the question:

1. Tell family and friends. Call your most important people! Be sure to tell your loved ones first, you don't want them to find out via Facebook or Twitter.

2. Discuss a budget and a guest list size. Determining a budget early on makes the planning easier as you will know what you have to spend.
3. Discuss a date. Almost all the details will revolve around the date. Consider work schedules, out of town guests, season and holiday dates.
4. Book a venue. Make sure to make appointments to see several places just to be able to compare the setting as well as the people who you will be interacting with you.
5. Book your DJ! Most importantly, book your entertainment early. With engagement season at a boom, make sure you have your date on the calendar. 

The Edge Sight and Sound team  is so excited to meet all of our future brides!

Winter wedding tips!

Here are a few things to keep in mind if you are having a winter wedding:
1. Choose seasonal hot dishes to keep your guests nice and warm.
2. Serve warm drinks like hot coco, coffee, tea, cider..
3. Consider an attended coat-check area to accommodate all those extra outdoor layers.
4. Choose a venue with a location that accommodates most of your guests.
5. Make sure the venue will keep cross walks, parking lots, side walks and such clear of snow.
6. Venue must be warm and cozy, not stuffy.
7. If you are taking pictures outside, don't forget to remind everyone to bring warm shoes (or choose a venue interesting enough to accommodate beautiful indoor pictures).
8. Just because it's winter doesn't mean you have to stick with white or blur themes, be creative!
9. Use candles! They add a warmth to the wedding.
10. Incorporate beautiful winter accessories such as wraps, shawls and jackets for you and your bridesmaids.

Pets and weddings

I have two furry children that I adore and take every where. With that in mind, I decided to look up pictures of animals who shared the big day with their human parents. Here is my favorite picture!

Aren't they adorable! Here are a few things to keep in mind if you will be having a furry baby at your wedding:
1. Make sure your wedding venue allows animals.
2. Consider your pet's personality. (Although I would love to have my little guys at my big day, all they would do is beg for food and eventually become a hassle to me and my guests. In my case, it's just not a very good idea.)
3. Are they good with children?
4. Some people might be allergic to your furry baby. 
5. Consider having one of your guests as the designated pet sitter (this person is also responsible for food and water duty).

Make sure to take lots and lots of cute pictures!

Backup plan for outdoor weddings

It's officially fall and the weather is great for outdoor weddings. Unfortunately, we've had a very wet October here in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The crazy weather has definitely caused some very unhappy Brides and Grooms. Avoid this issue and have a backup plan for your wedding! Here are are some things to keep in mind:

1. Pick a venue with indoor options so you can move the party inside.
2. Assign people who are able to move seating and decor inside quickly and efficiently.  
3. Make sure all vendors have a backup plan.
4. If using a DJ for outdoor sound, make sure they are able to move their equipment easily.
5. Rent tents to keep everyone nice and dry.
6. Guests dressed up and brought their A game to your wedding, so make sure they are kept looking fabulous. Provide umbrellas, dry seats, towels, and such, to keep everyone cozy and happy.
7. Think about hiring a Wedding Planner (or if you book a package with Edge Sight and Sound DJs you'll automatically have one of our amazing Entertainment Directors) who can create a plan B and execute it for you, headache free.
8. Embrace the rain. Surprisingly, the rain makes for really cute wedding pictures. Check out Pinterest for some ideas. 
9. Protect your dress, makeup, and hair girl. You wanna look awesome in all your wedding pics.
10. Most importantly, keep positive! Everything will work out just perfectly ;)

How to get your guests on the dance floor

The hardest job for a Tulsa DJ is getting people out on the dance floor. After many years and many weddings later, we're pros at how to get guests dancing. Here are a few tips:

1. Lead the way
Your guests will be doing what you are doing, so lead the way and hit the dance floor. Your wedding is all about having fun, so just let loose. No one is judging you, just bust out those sweet moves!
2. Go with the flow
If your guests are loving Beyonce's upbeat music, don't kill the mood with a slow song by John Legend. John Legend is great, but lets ride the upbeat music wave with all of our surfboards (did you like that Beyonce reference? :) ).
3. Communicate with your DJ
If the request from aunt Rhonda isn't a hit, just ask your DJ to transition to a different song. Don't be scared to keep your DJ informed of what you like and don't like.
4. Have a wide range of music
Try picking different songs to please different crowds. Start the wedding with slower songs (something Grandma would enjoy) and head towards party mode. You always want to end weddings with a bang.

What to look for in a wedding DJ

A couple years from now most of your guests won't remember If you showed up in a large limo or if you had a chocolate fountain, but they will remember if they had a good time or not. At a Wedding, the DJ is the most important feature when it comes to entertainment. Here are a few things to keep in mind while picking your Tulsa Wedding DJ:

1. Don't go for cheap!!!
Cheap only means unprofessional, low experience level, low quality equipment and most likely no back up equipment/DJ. Unfortunately, you will get what you pay for. Do your research, find someone that is within budget, but also meets all your expectations.
2. Just because they are great at DJing doesn't mean they are great at MCing.
There is so much more to DJing than just playing music. A professional DJ/MC should be detail oriented, quick on his feet, quick thinker and enthusiastic. Spend time (previously to the Wedding) getting to know your DJ's personality and making sure they are a good fit for your wedding.
3. They will have an office.
If the DJ you are interviewing wants to meet at the local Subway or Bridal Mall you might want to reconsider hiring him. Having to talk louder than the other customers at Starbucks or having other wedding vendors trying to sell you their services isn't fun. An established company will invite you to their office so you don’t have to share your wedding dreams with the whole Starbucks line.
4. Make sure your DJ is a professional.
I have purposely used the word "professional" many times in this, because of how important it is in a wedding. Most DJs in the Tulsa metro area DJ as a part time gig, as a side business or just for fun, which means, your event might not be a priority to them. A full time professional DJ will give you their undivided attention, schedule meetings to go over paperwork and answer all of your important questions. They will also have legally obtained music, have a great understanding of all genres of music, high quality sound systems, and have insurance (a must for some venues).

I hope that was helpful!
And remember, anyone can play music, Edge Sight and Sound entertains.

Wedding show tips

I know wedding shows can be very overwhelming! No worries, here are a few tips to tackle that monster :)

During the wedding show:

1. Try only going to booths of vendors you absolutely NEED.
Vendors are there to SELL you their services! This means, you may be stuck talking to someone who's services you may not even need at your wedding. Try to only hit the booths of people you are interested in, don't waist your time or theirs.
2. Jot down notes.
While speaking to a vender, try writing down some notes about their services. Jot down what you liked about them, did they seam genuinely interested in your wedding, did you connect with them, etc. This will help you remember details about all the different people you've met that day.
3. Do they have any specials?
Allot of vendors will draw you in with specific specials they are offering exclusively to brides who come from a certain wedding show. Be sure to remember/write down what they are offering you so you can redeem their special.

After the wedding show: 

1. Get organized!!!
First step, organize all the cards and pamphlets you received in groups by what type of venders they are.  Second organize each group from who you liked the most to who you liked the least.

2. Check out their website.
Browse around their website and find pictures of past events, extra services they offer, look through their blog, be informed! Get to know your future vendor.
3. Look them up on Wedding Wire or any other helpful website.
Look them up on social media sites like Wedding Wire, Facebook, and Google local. Make sure you know how satisfied previous customers were.
4. Call vendors and book one-on-one meetings.
As soon as you have made up your mind about a vender make sure to setup a meeting at their office (by the way, our Edge Sight and Sound office is beautiful! come visit our office and say hi to me :) ) to go over questions you might have about their services. This is a great time to get prices and go over your wedding vision. Take notes if necessary, I know it helps me remember little details.
5. Book your wedding date as soon as possible. 
Always take at least 24 hours to confirm you business with a vendor, you want to be 110% sure that they are a perfect fit for your wedding. Take time to meet with ALL the venders you are interested on, but don't wait too long, dates fill up fast. Wedding shows bring a massive amount of business, so be sure to book your date ASAP.

Hope this was helpful.

5 tips for your reception

Here are a few tips to help you and your groom have an amazing reception:
1. Stick together
Stay near one another, you BOTH are the reason your guests are there. Plus, they want to see you guys having fun together, not separate.
2. Games
Come up with fun games to keep your guests entertained and laughing.
3. Keep the kids occupied
Try coming up with ideas to keep the kiddos entertained. Having a kids table with coloring, maybe even puzzles, will help alleviate the parents and it'll make your wedding much more enjoyable. 
4. Take photos before the reception
Your reception is for mingling, try not to waist too much time taking pictures.
5. Leave your guests wanting more
If you see that people are starting to leave, ask your DJ to announce the last dance. Try picking an upbeat song for your last dance because you want to end your wedding at a high energy level. The final memory of your wedding should make a lasting impression, not just die down!

Today I saw a future bride's status about how expensive flowers can be. I never thought about it until I did my own research, and WOW she was so right! Flowers are one of the main decorations at a wedding, not to mention you need them for bouquets and for boutonniere as well. This got me thinking, "hmm... if I was a bride on a budget, what are some alternatives for this headache?" Here is what I came up with:

Buy in bulk
Places like Sam's Club sell flowers in bulks. This makes it a whole lot cheaper if your a bride on a  budget. Do your research and checkout other places or websites that sell in bulks as well. Get informed! Be sure to read ratings from other brides who have bough flowers from this vendor before.

This goes right along with buying flowers in bulk. Places like Pinterest and YouTube are filled with awesome DIY ideas and tutorials. Making your own bouquets and decorations adds that personal touch to your wedding. Plus, what are bridesmaids for (haha)? Recruit your ladies to lend a hand and help you out!

Choose seasonal flowers
Be aware of a flower's blooming period. Sunflowers are my favorite flower and they are perfect for a  summer wedding, because this is the season they bloom. This makes them easily accessible during this time of year, not so much during winter. Winter = more expensive!

Choose fake flowers
Silk flowers are a great alternative! They photograph great and last forever.

Use alternatives
Use things like feathers, bows, ribbons, etc, to add some volume to your bouquet and you wont have to use as many flowers. You can also use vases, plastic diamonds, mirrors, candles, etc, on center pieces and nix the flowers all together!

Hope that helped!

Should you let your guests request music at your wedding?

Should you let your guests request music at your wedding? Of course! We always welcome requests, it's a way to make your guests feel part of your wedding. Just be aware, there will definitely be guests who pick inappropriate songs. A great way to avoid this is by offering your guests a chance to request music ahead of time through their RSVP. That way you can create music lists of songs/artists that should definitely be played and songs/artists, that under any circumstance, should not be played. Here at Edge Sight and Sound we allow our Brides and Grooms to electronically create request lists. This makes it easier for them to add/remove songs on the go. Our DJs follow the "Play" and "Do Not Play" lists very carefully. Also, your DJ won’t play anything that "doesn't feel right" or that can potentially kill the party. We feed off the crowd, so if all your guests are on the dance floor dancing we wont play a slow song that will kill the energy. The only exception is if the Bride or Groom come to the DJ personally and tell them to play a song. Don't worry, we allow guests to requests songs on the day of! Just approach the DJ booth and we'll figure a way to add your favorite song.

TVs at weddings

Did you know we use TVs at weddings? By having TVs we can create custom slideshows to displaying your most memorable moments. Slideshows are a great way to highlight wedding engagement pictures, destination wedding pictures, baby pictures, family picture, etc. One of the most unique ways we have ever used our TVs was when the best man, a soldier over seas, did the best man toast over Skype! He was in a complete different country, but with our technology, was still able to be a apart of the special day. How awesome is that! Such a special moment that brought many to tears.

Father and Daughter dance

Last week I talked about some great songs for The First Dance as a married couple. This week I wanted to make my own list of some great songs for the Father and Daughter dance. I tried to pick some newer and some older songs, from different genres. Here is my list:



This was a difficult list to come up with! There aren't many "new" songs that are used for The Father and Daughter dance. Remember, this list is just to help get your creative juices flowing. There is nothing more beautiful than playing a song that is unique to you and your father's relationship. Also, our clients always have the option to create their own special mix.

First Dance song ideas

In my opinion, one of the most special times during a wedding, is the bride and groom's first dance. I've watched first dances that have literally brought me into baby, sobbing, tears (what, don't judge me lol). But what if your not into the whole "super serious" thing? That's fine too! The whole point of the first dance is the image of the bride and groom coming together as a married couple. I did some research and came up with my own lists of "romantic" and "upbeat" first dance songs. Here is my list:

1. I Won't Give Up- Jason Mraz
2. All of Me- John Legend
3. I Don't Want To Miss A Thing- Aerosmith 
4. At Last- Etta James
5. A Thousand Years- Christina Perri
6. You Are The Best Thing - Ray LaMontagne
7. God Gave Me You- Blake Shelton
8. I'll Be- Edwin McCain
9. There Goes My Life- Kenny Chesney
10. I Don’t Dance- Lee Brice

1. Ho Hey- Lumineers
2. Everything- Michael Buble
3. I Will Wait- Mumford & Sons
4. Love On Top- Beyoncé
5. First Day Of My Life- Bright Eyes
6. I'm Yours- Jason Mraz
7. Marry Me- Jason Derulo
8. Not a Bad Thing- Justin Timberlake
9. Marry Me- Train
10. Such Great Heights- The Postal Service

Wedding trend- Bridesmaid dresses

So lately I've noticed a huge trend merging in the wedding world (yes, I'm one of those Pinterest freaks lol). I've noticed that more and more brides are assigning/allowing their bridesmaids to wear different dresses! Some bridesmaids have similar dresses, but in different hues of the same color. Here is an example: the wedding color is pink, but bridesmaids dresses range from hot magenta, to baby pink, to fuchsia, to rose. I've also noticed that it doesn't stop at the colors, some have complete different styles/cuts! They might be the same length (some aren't even the same length lol), but the tops of the dresses are different ie: sweetheart neck, one shoulder, scoop neck, etc.. I've also looked at pictures of bridesmaids with the same dress, but different colored shoes or the same dress, but in a rainbow range of colors. So are you as mind blown as I am? I was totally a believer of the same style, same color, old fashion way, but I kinda like this trend! There is nothing wrong with being different and letting your bridesmaids personalaties show through their gowns! But is it pleasing to eye? You'll be looking at these pictures for the rest of your life! Make sure to see ALL bridesmaids with ALL their different outfits before your wedding day, you can always make changes before hand. "Wow" your guests with uniqueness!

Entertainment Director

One of the features that separates Edge Sight and Sound from other Tulsa DJs is that we offer an Entertainment Director with all of our packages. An Entertainment Director? Whats that? An Entertainment Director is a member of our team, who works directly with DJ/MC and other vendors, to facilitate a smooth wedding day. What usually happens at weddings is either the mother of the bride or the maid of honor are left in charge of running the wedding.  This is a very overwhelming job, especially for two of the most important guests of the bride. By having an Entertainment Director at your wedding to specifically focus on you and your personalized itinerary, it leaves the maid of honor or mother of bride free to enjoy the wedding. The Entertainment Director also helps create the written schedule (itinerary) with the bride herself. On the day of the wedding, the Entertainment Director will distribute the schedule to key people (i.e. photographer, DJ, caterer) and they'll ensure all parties follow schedule unless instructed otherwise by the bride. An Entertainment Director will also coordinate with vendors to ensure details on dinner, drinks, champagne for toasts, cake cutting, photos and other details are planned with precision. They are there to keep the flow of the wedding and to make sure it runs smoothly. In other words, the Entertainment Director is a bride's best friend haha.

What to keep in mind when picking a venue

The location of your wedding is a huge deal! Here are some points to consider while picking a venue:
1. Is you venue accessible? Make sure your guests don't need to own a monster truck to get to your venue. Verify that all guests can move around/to your venue with ease. Is it wheel chair accessible? Does it have stairs? How long of a hike to it? How far away is it from town?
2. Does you venue accommodate the number of guests you are inviting? Have a general head count before you commit to a venue. If your venue only comfortably accommodates 150 people, there is no way to fit all 300 guests you have invited. How are you going to uninvited your grandma's neighbor's cousin's girlfriend? You can't forget about your grandma's neighbor's cousin's girlfriend! How rude (haha).
3. Does you venue have certain amenities? We've been to venues that don't have easily accessible electricity. Most vendors need power to operate. Also, does it have (clean) bathrooms, enough parking space, AC/heat, kitchen..?
4. Does the decor of the venue match you wedding theme? If the walls are bright yellow, will that match your mint green and Tiffany blue wedding colors? Probably not. Make sure it all flows together and makes sense. Having a modern themed wedding at a barn just doesn't look good. 
5. When you rent the venue what all does it come with the rental? Do they provide linens? chairs? tables? People to clean up after the wedding? Can you rent your own vendors or must you use the venue's vendors?
6. Are you serving alcohol? Make sure the venue isn't an alcohol free location.
7. What are the venues rates? Ask if they have off peak discounts or week day discounts. If the venue is at a hotel, make sure to ask if they offer discounts on rooms or group discounts. Also, if you go over your set time, make sure you know the overtime fee.
8. Can you have your ceremony and reception at this venue? Having both in the same location makes  it very easy for your out of town guests.
9. Does it fit your budget? Sure its a beautiful location, but don't commit to something that is way over a price you are conformable with.
10.  Least and certainly the most important of all these tips is to MAKE SURE THEY ARE AVAILABLE ON YOUR WEDDING DATE. That should be your first question. Can you imagine falling in love with the location, but finding out they are booked! Talk about heart breaking :(

Don't be afraid to ask, ask, ask! Write down your most important questions and write down the answer too. Take a few days to think about it and make sure to visit more than one location!

Weddings in the heat

Its wedding season and the hot summer days are creeping in fast. The official first day of summer is June 21, 2014. That's in 10 days!!! Scary I know. With that in mind here are a few suggestions to keep in mind when having a summer wedding:

1. HYDRATION is the most important concept of a summer wedding. Make sure everyone has a cool beverage instead of sugary soft drinks. Serve ice tea, lemonade, water, juices, frozen drinks, etc..
2. If your having an outside wedding try having a wedding closer to night time or a sunset wedding. Keep in mind, you can always have a short ceremony outside and then move the reception indoors. 
3. Provide goodies for your guests like sunglasses, sunscreen, hand fans, water bottles, etc.. All these items can be easily personalized with a cute quote or simply a Mr. & Mrs.
4. SHADE, shade, shade.. did I say shade? yup, shade. 
5. Provide misters and fans!

Those are only a few ideas to keep in mind. Now bring on the summer!

Keith Boyd- small entrepreneur with a big heart

Now that everyone knows about Keith's Ice Cold Lemonade Stands, it's time to share a little bit of Keith Boyd's story. Keith Boyd is a young man who was born with Cerebral Palsy, a condition that affects his mobility as well as his ability to speak.While attending The Little Light House, a tuition free Christian school for children with special needs, he received his high-tech eye gaze computer, which is a speech generating device. Wow, how amazing is that? Keith was finally able to participate in life by making his own choices. A truly life-changing moment! By using his eyes Keith was able to develop his own business plan for Keith's Ice Cold Lemonade Stands. In 2012, Keith's firsts stand was created to simply generate enough money to buy a toy Keith had his heart set on. Keith made enough money to buy his toy and donated the rest to his school, The Little Light House. This was the beginning of it all. Although Keith no longer attends The Little Light House, he is still raising money to help his friends! Keith's new goal for 2014 is to raise $250,000 for The Little Light House. Yes, Keith has to work harder, but his struggles only make him more determined! All this couldn't have been done without Keith's amazing parents, James and Erin Boyd, who have been by his side helping him fulfill his dreams. You two are fighters and such beautiful, strong, role models! We, at Edge Sight and Sound, are so happy to call the Boyds our friends! You guys are an inspiration to us all.

Can't wait to kick of Keith' Ice Cold Lemonade Stands 2014!!!!
Stay tuned for locations! Also, If you are looking for volunteer work this summer check out Keith's website and be a part of this amazing fundraiser.

Keith's Ice Cold Lemonade!

Guess what everyone? Its almost time for the kick off of Keith's Ice Cold Lemonade Stand! Keith's Ice Cold Lemonade is a fundraiser created by Keith Boyd, a young man with a big heart! Keith's goal is to raise $250,000 this summer for the Little Light House. The Little Light House's mission is to improve the quality of life of children with special needs, their families, and their communities. They accomplish this mission by providing tuition-free educational and therapeutic services to children with special needs ages birth to six. The LLH does not charge tuition and receives money only from private sources, such as foundations and grants.  The LLH does not receive funding from government sources or the United Way. Keith's lemonade stands are a huge help for The Little Light House. What started out as a small lemonade stand has grown into a huge, beautiful, event! Chick-fil-A's franchise owner, Arthur Greeno, introduced Keith’s idea to the Thrive15 team and they are helping Keith's goal turn into reality! Chik-fil-A will provide lemonade and tea and create special lemonade stands for each sponsor location. Lemonade will be free at the stands, but donations will be accepted. A special 24 oz. Keith’s Ice Cold Lemonade cup can be purchased for $100 and filled up all summer at any area Chick-fil-A for free. Keith will have 10 lemonade stands around Tulsa, OK every Wednesday from June 16 through August 20, 10:00am to 2:00pm, and we'll be there jamming out with Keith himself!  We are so honored and excited to help Keith accomplish his goal this summer!

Please help us get the word out by liking and sharing his pages!

Stay tuned for details! We'll be announcing every week which location we'll be jamming at!

The Patriot Cup 2014

Wow this weekend was awesome!  It was such an HONOR to be chosen by The Patriot Golf Club and Folds of Honor for the fourth year in a row to be hired as the DJ for
the welcome party and some other services. But, we were also honored to be able
to donate some services in conjunction as well this year. We love it out at the
Patriot Golf Course!
Saturday night we were hired to entertain… and we didn’t
disappoint! I was on the turntables spinning some great tunes and getting the
party dancing. We also had the tent decked out: dance floor lighting, uplighting,
Patriot logo on the tent top, dancing under the stars and a ton more.
Working with Caroline and Holly at the Patriot is always
such a great experience. This year we donated some vintage style string
lighting and it looked so good. The course is naturally beautiful and even
though it rained… The Patriot Cup was wonderful as always.
We were also able to work with the very talented Brittney Davis of Brittney Ashton Photography. They had her all over the place taking pictures that, without a doubt, will
showcase the gorgeous backdrop and preserve some great memories for all that
Ashley Farthing of Farthing Events was also a huge part of the Patriot Cup. She was
doing her creative-genius-thing at the Hard Rock Casino Tulsa for the Sunday Black Tie
Gala Dinner and the concert on Monday.
Folds of Honor gives scholarships to children of fallen or
disabled American heroes… I can’t imagine a better way to have spent my
Memorial Day weekend. THANK YOU so much to all who have served or are currently
serving for our country, and also for all the family members of those as well.

Patriot Cup

Memorial weekend is just around the corner, which also means the Patriot CupGolf Tournament is right around the corner as well.

Hooby and Jessica

"Love can unite two worlds" was the theme of this luxurious wedding. Hooby and Jessica come from completely different backgrounds, but they are living proof that love is unstoppable no matter the boundaries. It was an absolute pleasure being a part of their wedding! Their ceremony and reception took place at the Philbrook Museum of Arts in Tulsa Oklahoma. They had a two floor wedding with dinner upstairs and dance floor, with custom all white DJ setup, down stairs. We used tons of all white wireless uplighting to highlight the already beautiful venue. We wanted to say a big thank you to Farthing Events for making this two floor event come to life. Ashley Farthing's vision and attention to detail is incredible. There was even a beautiful monogram which was written in 3 different languages. It is always an honor to work with Ashley Farthing, she did an amazing job! Thanks to Redeemed Productions, you guys rock! another beautiful wedding video! Also, it was so nice to work with Bradford Martens Photography, the pictures were, wow, stunning!

Monograms are an awesome way to add to your decor. A monogram is a template placed in front of a light to project an image. In other words?? YOUR name in LIGHTS!! Our brides love monograms because they are completely customizable! This means brides are able to match napkin initials or even their invitation font to their monogram. We can also make our monograms whatever color needed and not to mention wherever you want! Walls, floor, tents, you name it! We often use monograms at weddings but, they are great for other events too! Here are a couple other ways to use monograms: at a class reunion display the year of graduation, at an anniversary party display the date you got married, at a company party display the company logo, etc. Be creative, guests love taking pictures with monograms so make it memorable!

Brian & Haleigh Mattingly

I can't help but get the chills every time I watch the video of Brian and Haleigh's wedding! It has almost been a whole year since these two have been married, it's crazy! Brian and Haleigh got married July 6, 2013 and had their wedding reception at the Glenpool Conference Center. Brian and Haleigh went with our Elite Package and had lots of fun add ons. The first detail I noticed about their wedding was their wedding colors. So not traditional and so not boring! I would have never thought of putting Tiffany Blue and red together, but it was absolutely beautiful. They incorporated their unique wedding colors with their decor and uplighting. They also had a monogram displaying their names, which added to the decor. Brian and Haleigh also chose to use two of our TVs and use them to display a picture slide show. Everything about their wedding was awesome, but my personal favorite was watching Haleigh dance with her father. She utilized our Dancing on a Cloud to make the Father Daughter dance extra special.

A special thanks to Redeemed Productions for sending us this awesome video. You guys captured Brian and Haleigh's big day perfectly!  Also, thanks to Brittney Ashton Photography for being an amazing photographer, the pictures were gorgeous! And I can't forget the team of Erica Scott Weddings for making it all come together so flawlessly.

Color Runs

Now that the weather is so beautiful, don't you feel like just being outside all the time? A great way to have lots of fun and getting your body moving are runs! Edge Sight and Sound just participated in the Color Me Rad run and it was a blast! Color Me Rad is a 5K run that uses color bombs, color cannons, color mortars, and multi-toned courses to get people going! The runners start off with white shirts and through out the race get blasted with blue, green, pink, purple, and yellow Color Bombs. Each section of the run adds a new explosion of color on you. We had a blast working with these guys! Make sure to visit their website for more info!

Have you picked your venue yet? Here are some awesome venues we love to work at!

1.Shady Lane Farm

Shady Lane Farm is a perfect venue for that outdoor bride! Its 35 acre location is full of natural beauty! Outdoor weddings look beautiful with our Vintage String Lights! They also have a beautiful barn  that can accommodate an indoor wedding. Pictures are absolutely gorgeous at this location!

2. Glenpool Conference Center

Located in Glenpool, the new Glenpool Conference Center is a modern, flexible event venue designed to provide an exciting but efficient and functional backdrop to your event. Its interior makes it very easy to transform the inside from Modern Chic to Vintage, its an open canvas! Also, this modern venue accommodates parties of up to to 800 people.  The grand foyer looks amazing with uplighting and the outdoor amphitheater makes for a beautiful wedding ceremony. 

3. Mayo Hotel

The Mayo Hotel is absolutely grand! One of the most iconic places to see and be seen is the Grand Hall of The Mayo Hotel and it can be exclusively reserved for your “I Do” moment.Your first dance as Mr. and Mrs. under the original crystal chandeliers in Tulsa’s most famous ballroom is picture perfect. Although The Mayo Hotel is extremely elegant, it can be easily transformed into a high end party that will have your guests talking about for years to come.

4. Bridle Creek Horse Ranch & Resort

If you are looking for a unique country wedding venue in the Tulsa area, Bridle Creek provides a stunning and unique location! They have a beautiful 7,500 square foot Main Lodge that brings rustic elegance to your wedding. From their custom wagon wheel chandeliers, to their 12 Outlaw Cabins, Bridle Creek is perfect location for that Oklahoma country girl! Its location in beautiful Osage Hills, just minutes from downtown Tulsa, makes it easily assessable. Their 128 acres of tranquil countryside makes it for gorgeous wedding pictures.

5.The Campbell Hotel

The Campbell Hotel is located in the historic Route 66. What makes The Campbell Hotel unique is their two completely different venues, The Campbell Event Center and The Renaissance Square! The Event Center has more of a luxurious feeling with its crystal chandeliers, barreled ceilings and built-in dance floor. The Renaissance Square has a more rustic feeling with its high sealing, iron works and open space. We love this location because you can book both venues at the same time! You can have the ceremony in one space and  the reception in the other.

This is a small amount of beautiful venues located in the Tulsa Metro area. Remember, when looking for the right venue for you, think about what kind of vibe and atmosphere you are wanting. You also want to think about your budget, do you want to do a ceremony on site, distance from where you live, etc. We love to do walk-throughs with our clients to help with layout and working out your vision for your facility. Enjoy seeing all the great venues in town!

Choreographed dancing and Weddings

Being a maid of honor and best man is such an amazing recognition of love and not to mention it is a huge responsibility! They are responsible for various aspects of the awesome road leading up to the big day, but unfortunately, the rest of the wedding party isn't involved as much. In my opinion, one of the coolest ways to get the rest of your bridesmaids and groomsmen involved in your big day is to do a choreographed dance. Choreographed dances are a huge trend right now! Have your Edge Sight and Sound DJ come up with a mix of popular songs such as Thriller, Gangnam Style, The Dougie or even The YMCA for your wedding party to dance to. The dance doesn't have to be perfect, the goal is to have fun and get your guest up and dancing with them!

The last dance

Have you thought about your last dance of the night? Here are some song choices often used by our brides:

Save the Last Dance for Me by Michael Buble
Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond
Time of My Life by Black Eyed Peas
Glad You Came by The Wanted

We always recommend choosing a slow and a fast song. By picking both songs our Edge Sight and Sound DJs can play whichever song matches the mood of the evening. Also, another detail to think about is when to actually have your last dance. Keep in mind that you dont want to have the dance too early because you want plenty of time to celebrate but, you also dont want to wait untill 10 people are left at your wedding. End your celebration early enough that friends and family leave wanting more!

Dancing on a Cloud!

While browsing through our website you might ask yourself  "what in the world is Dancing on a Cloud?" I thought the same as well lol! Crazy ideas went through my head when Randy mentioned it to me. Are a bunch of puff balls going to be floating around someones head? Is it going to be messy? What is it? Dancing on a Cloud is a machine that creates a white, cloud like fog, that stays knee high from the ground. The cloud is made out of  dry ice so its not messy and it does not smell. Oh, and don't worry, the cloud will not set off fire alarms during your event. The first dance as Mr. and Mrs. is already so special, why not make it uniquely memorable as well? Edge Sight and Sound is the only Tulsa, Oklahoma Wedding DJ that actually offers this feature. Dancing on the Cloud will have your guests running to their cameras! It creates the most beautiful, dream like, pictures. What bride doesn't want to be a princess on her big day? -- Ana

Prom songs vs wedding songs

It's prom season everybody! We've been dancing the night away and just having a blast with all the Tulsa area prom kids. Do you remember your prom? What kind of music were you dancing to? At my prom I was dancing line dances like the "Cha Cha Slide" and shaking it to "Single Ladies" by Beyonce. I still love those songs, but are they appropriate for a wedding? Sure! Here at Edge Sight and Sound one of our number one goals is to get ALL your guests involved in your wedding. One great way to get your guests up and dancing are line dances such as the "Cha Cha Slide". Line dances are upbeat, easy and are not gender specific, therefore, you can get a range of people on the dance floor. Also, a great way to incorporate your favorite songs is by using them in specific times during your wedding. Example, if you are a fan of Beyonce's "Single Ladies" like me, why not add that song during the bouquet toss. The song gets all the single gals up and it adds excitement to that special moment of your wedding. Weddings don't have to be stuffy and serious. Your goal is to have your guests leave your wedding thinking, wow that wedding reflected their personalities. Don't be afraid to make it personal!

Benefiting the Little Light House

The mission of the Little Light House is to glorify God by improving the quality of life for children with special needs, their families, and their communities. We accomplish this mission by providing tuition-free educational and therapeutic services to children with special needs ages birth to six. The Little Light House has been a part of Tulsa since October 3, 1972. What began with one teacher, five students, and five volunteers has grown into a nationally recognized developmental center for children with special needs with over 40 staff members serving 64 students alongside many volunteers. The LLH does not charge tuition and receives money only from private sources, such as foundations and grants. The LLH does not receive funding from government sources or the United Way.

 Here is a cool way for Brides and Grooms to have a fun evening with a chance to win prizes and benefit The Little Light House this coming March. The Tulsa Wedding Society is hosting this event and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Little Light House. It is at Sky Loft at First Place Tower on the 41st floor! Tickets are $15 for individuals and $50 for VIP couples. VIP couple includes reserved seating and a bottle of champagne, a great swag bag, and 5 raffle tickets and more!

Jessica and Hooby Yoon / Wedding at Philbrook Museum

    Back in September we got the honor to provide the Entertainment, Sound and all the lighting for Jessica & Hooby Yoon's Wedding at the Philbrook Museum. This great video footage was shot by Redeemed Productions.  Ashley Farthing of Farthing Events created the perfect Wedding Day for these guys, "Love Can Unite Two Worlds".  It started with the ceremony at the bottom of the garden on the steps of the Philbrook Tempietto. They continued through the Museum to the Rotunda for Hooby & Jessica's Gangdam Style Grand Entrance and Dinner. During dinner Kena was spinning the 1940's themed playlist with toasts from members of the Wedding Party followed by a "From the Heart" Toast from Jessica's Dad. They moved the Party down to La Villa for the First Dance with a Custom Remix I did of Frank Sinatra - The Way You Look Tonight. Jessica and Hooby followed that with the Parent Dances, Cake Cutting and opened the dance floor for everyone with some upbeat Arabic Music. The dance floor was packed and I was spinning all upbeat high energy hits till they ended it on The Wanted - Glad You Came. The New Jessica and Hooby Yoon had a beautiful "Send Off" departure at the front of the museum. 
      Thanks to Jessica, Hooby and their families for trusting us to do what we do best. A special thanks to the guys at Redeemed Productions, The Philbrook Museum, Kena & Our Team and most of all Ashley Farthing and her staff from Farthing Events. Ashley designed, organized, customized and executed "Love Can Unite Two Worlds". This was one of our favorite Weddings by far. - Randy Lundy
