Sarah and Paul’s Wedding at The Greenhouse Loft: Chicago Wedding Djs

wedding with uplighting rentals at downtown chicago greenhouse loft

We Love Dj’ing Weddings and Receptions

#CallUsTheCrossleys

Sarah and Paul were wed on July 6 at the beautiful Greenhouse Loft in Chicago. Paul Michaels Events had the esteemed pleasure of providing services for their ceremony as well as the reception. This was a very unique venue, smaller than we are used to and with much more exposure from windows covering the entire back half of the room. The room looked absolutely beautiful and was incredibly decorated with greenery by Flowers for Dreams. The decor combined with our state of the art lighting really made this room look stunning!

Sarah and Paul were incredibly nice and easy to work with from the start. The ceremony took place right outside the building in front of the garden area. The rain was threatening to ruin the day, but fortunately, the only thing that came down was sunlight shining on the beautiful couple the entire evening.  It was one of the smoothest ceremonies that we’ve been party to, and that easiness lead to everyone having a great time throughout the evening.  It didn’t matter how many trains rolled by during the ceremony or how long it took for the dance party to start. Sarah and Paul kept smiles on their faces all night… which helped make our experience all the better. We couldn’t have asked for a better couple to work with. It was such an unforgettable and special day.

G2 Crowd’s 2018 Holiday Party at the Fairmont Chicago

G2 Crowd is becoming quite the name around Paul Michaels Events. We recently provided DJ Services for the a party at their offices, and now DJ Ian and DJ Brian recently rocked with the employees at G2 Crowd for their 2018 Holiday Party at the Fairmont Hotel in Lakeshore East, downtown Chicago.

For this awesome holiday party we provided a full audio system for the large room (dual subwoofers), as well as full room uplighting, in addition to audio coverage for their cocktail hour in the hallway before the employees and guests entered the ballroom.

Thanks for having us and trusting us with your holiday party G2 Crowd!

Kim and Dan’s Wedding at the Chicago Marriott Southwest in Burr Ridge

Kim and Dan came to us as a referral from one of their friends, which is TRULY the best form of flattery we can receive! Their friend who referred them to us knew that we’d take care of them as if we’ve known them for years, which is EXACTLY what we did!

Kim and Dan met on the dating app Tinder (See!? It does happen!) about a year and a half before they met with us to discuss their wedding DJ and entertainment services.

We provided Burr Ridge Wedding DJ Ceremony and Burr Ridge Wedding DJ Reception services for this couple so they could have their dream wedding! For their wedding we also provided our Chicago Wedding Photobooth services, and did a custom name in lights monogram projection (see the pictures below). In addition, we also provided audio coverage for the hallway outside where the ceremony and reception was held, so that guests were able to enjoy music during their cocktail hour while the venue did a ‘room flip’ of the reception hall to convert the ceremony space into an elegant reception space.

Kim and Dan were a blast to work with throughout the planning process, and were a blast the day of the party as well, where we kept their guests dancing from beginning to end!

Emily and Chris’s Wedding at Fishermen’s Inn in Elburn

When Emily and Chris got engaged, they knew who their DJ for their wedding at Fishermen’s Inn in Elburn was going to be immediately!

What an honor!

Back almost exactly one year earlier, Emily’s sister Jen got married, and we provided their DJ services in Maple Park.  As much as we love hearing great things about our DJs and our services, and we love rave reviews, it is a true testament to our services when we are hired back by the same family. That’s exactly what happened here, and it is truly an honor to be doing what we love for repeat clients like this!

For Emily and Chris’s wedding we provided wedding ceremony services on the first floor, and provided a separate DJ system setup for the dinner hall, as well as our full DJ and lighting setup for the cocktail hour and dance hall/area.  We always like to get to know our couples and what they may need for their venues, no matter how unique the venue may be. In this case, that’s exactly what we did, and we brought gear for each room so the guests could move from room to room and we’d always be prepared. 

When we moved everyone into the dance hall/area on the second floor to get the night going, we kept a packed dance floor until the very end of the night when we sent the couple outside for a beautiful sparkler send-off!

Shana and Lucas’s Wedding Reception at the University Club of Chicago

Shana and Lucas wanted awesome entertainment for their wedding reception at the University Club of Chicago on the Magnificent Mile downtown, and we delivered!

The couple had their ceremony at Saint Vincent de Paul Catholic Parish Church earlier in the day and then they arrived at the University Club in Downtown Chicago for their wedding cocktail hour at the President’s Bar.  After cocktail hour, we moved everyone into the Michigan Room on the 2nd floor of the venue. 

After all of the wedding formalities we got the night started and kept it going until the very end of the night!

Amber and Mark’s Chicago Wedding at The Stan Mansion

This past week assistant Evan and DJ Paul Michaels were able to provide Chicago wedding ceremony DJ and Chicago wedding reception DJ services for Amber and Mark at the Stan Mansion in Logan Square (Chicago).

The Stan Mansion was previously a Masonic temple, built in 1921 and completely restored in 2014 when it became a wedding and events venue. It has some incredible history and was restored beautifully. We think it was a wonderful choice of wedding venue for this Logan Square wedding!

Amber and Mark had their beautiful ceremony downstairs in the lower level sanctuary, officiated by Brett, Mark’s brother-in-law, who’s wedding we provided Chicago Wedding DJ Services for in February at the Montgomery Club in River North.

Following the ceremony, we had cocktail hour upstairs in the bar area, as well as in the foyer of the Stan Mansion. After formalities and dinner we got the night going!
