Michelle and Harrison’s Wedding at the Metropolitan Club in the Willis Tower in Chicago

For the first time it seems like Americans can finally see light at the end of this very long tunnel called COVID-19. Fortunately, a light is already shining bright on Paul Michaels Events as business is thriving once again. On Saturday, May 15, we had the pleasure of providing our services at the world-famous Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) in downtown Chicago.

The ceremony and reception took place on the 67th floor (at the Metropolitan Club) which easily has one of the most spectacular views of the city (well, at least in our opinion). The whole celebration was an exciting experience with enhanced by incredible people, amazing food, heartfelt speeches, and of course phenomenal music.
DJ’s Brian and Shannon has absolutely no problem keeping the party alive and energized the whole night. We even had the help of some unexpected fireworks going on outside in perfect view. It was an esteemed pleasure working with Michelle and Harrison from the very beginning to the end. We wish them the best in their future endeavors as husband and wife and look forward to the next couple we can party with.

Brianna and Justin’s Wedding at Abbington Banquets in Glen Ellyn

Beautiful wedding monogram at abbington glen ellyn banquet hall

Mazel Tov Brianna and Justin! Although this couple wasn’t able to celebrate their wedding as originally planned in April 2020, after rescheduling a few times, they were able to celebrate with their family and friends with a beautiful Jewish Wedding Ceremony in 2021!

DJ Shannon and DJ Paul had the distinct honor and pleasure of being Brianna and Justin’s Downers Grove Wedding DJs at Abbington Banquet Hall.

At Paul Michaels Events we put the couple at the center of attention on their wedding day, NOT the DJs. We’re there to make sure you shine, and have an effortless and fun day, and we are there to make that magic happen, not to be the show.
In this case, as you can see in our photos (below), our DJ setup was positioned behind our lighting and speaker setup so that we could make sure the room looked incredible and we could literally spotlight our bride and groom from across the dance floor.

Whenever we work in venues with tall ceilings, or air walls (the ones that can separate larger rooms into many banquet hall rooms), we love to use our name in lights effect to personalize the space with the couple’s names. A few years back we upgraded our monogram projectors to digital projections so that we can ensure the projection looks fantastic and is crystal clear, while allowing us to project the image from nearly any angle.

Additionally, we surprised all the guests with our “dancing on the clouds” effect for Briana and Justin’s first dance as husband and wife. The effect looked beautiful and grabbed everyone’s attention for such a special moment. Luckily photographer Morgan from Indigo Lace Collective was able to capture this incredible effect!

Once we got the dancing started, DJ Shannon kept it rocking all night long!

Thanks Briana and Justin for trusting Paul Michaels Events with your big day!
