In Mid September we were able to help bring Melanie and Anthony’s perfect wedding to fruition. They held the wedding at the Loews O’Hare Hotel in Rosemont. We met Melanie and Anthony back in September (2019) at the Bridal Expo Chicago bridal show at Drury Lane. Right when we met them we knew we had immediately built a relationship with them, and we think at that time, they knew we would be their perfect DJs for wedding.
Melanie and Anthony had a mixed Persian/American wedding that was DJed by DJ Paul Michaels and DJ Shannon. Because of their wedding being a mixed ethnicity wedding, they knew they’d have a few out of the ordinary requests for their DJs. At Paul Michaels Events, we’ve always said that we LOVE unique weddings. Sure, we can do a ‘cookie-cutter’ wedding, but we’d much rather help make our couple’s weddings unique.
For their wedding, we brought out a larger than average sound system to cover the large ballroom at the Loews Hotel, and it sounded awesome!
While we’re always happy to work with couples to play any type of ethnic music, of course, we may not have any of our DJs who are truly familiar the music.
Because of this, the couple additionally hired an Assyrian DJ to play the Persian and Assyrian music, since he’d be familiar with the popular songs, lyrics, etc. We were of course happy to work with him and spend time with him to make sure that we were all aligned before the couple’s wedding to make sure the transitions between DJs would be smooth and that the couple had nothing to worry about. Of course, we were successful here!
We had a blast rocking with Melanie and Anthony and their guests until 1:30 in the morning!
