Mallory and Jim’s Wedding at Meson Sabika in Napervile

We recently had the honor of providing Naperville Wedding Ceremony DJ and Wedding Reception DJ services for Mallory and Jim at their gorgeous wedding at Meson Sabika in Naperville. Meson Sabika is a local restaurant serving Spanish tapas & sangria set in a historic mansion with a landscaped outdoor garden. 

The couple had a wonderful ceremony outside (ignoring the light drizzle, which definitely wasn’t going to rain on their parade, er.. wedding day) and then moved inside (to Meson Sabika’s event hall) for cocktail hour and to get the night started!

Mallory and Jim are such an incredible couple with a pretty long history together! They met in high school through mutual friends and stayed in touch through college, and then officially started dating in the fall of 2014.  They got engaged in 2017, and married exactly one year later!

Check out the pictures below for a quick recap of the night!

Sofie’s Bat Mitzvah at the NIU Conference Center in Naperville

Naperville Bat Mitzvah Kids Partying

End of an Era

The A-Team Crew of Chicagoland Mitzvah professionals assembled to help Sofie have the best Bat Mitzvah in Chicagoland just a few weeks ago! Sofie is the youngest in her family to have her Bat/Bar Mitzvah, and we’re proud to say that we’ve been the DJs/Entertainment for all 4!

For Sofie’s Naperville Bat Mitzvah we provided full room uplighting, and a name in lights design for the wall to match her theme. As you can see from the pictures below, everything came together perfectly to pull off the “Sofie’s Candy Bar” theme!

We spent the night dancing with both the kids and adults, as well as doing some games, and of course handed out a LOT of candy to Sofie’s guests!

Sofie and Family: Thank you for having us for the 4th time, and we hope that we’ll have the honor of DJing some weddings for you in the (near?) future!

Jill and Mitch’s Wedding

Wedding Guests Partying with Bride and Groom at Meson Sabika in Naperville Blog Cover

My good friends (from college) Jill and Mitch tied the knot this past weekend at Bethany Lutheran Church in Naperville. After the bridal party toured the suburban area taking some gorgeous pictures, we started the reception which was held at Meson Sabika in Naperville (one of my favorite venues).

This was a really special wedding to me, since there is a story behind it. I remember shortly after I had met Jill in 2008 (her freshmen year of college) she looked at me and told me that I was going to DJ her wedding. At that time, I brushed off the comment and said something along the lines of “Okay, sounds great”, assuming I’d never hear from her again. Little did I know that we’d stay friends all throughout my time in college, and eight years later I’d actually be DJing her wedding! Throughout their time dating I had gotten to know Mitch from his visits to our college, so when they asked me to work with them to deliver their special day, I couldn’t have been happier.

For their wedding, we provided both DJ and decor lighting services. We used pink uplighting (which looked amazing), and then also provided a screen and projector set up to play a photo montage created by Jenna (maid of honor) and Mitch. During my meetings with Jill and Mitch they specifically told me that they wanted their reception to remind them of college and the college parties they used to go to. They wanted to party from the first second to the last. Sadly, I had to let them down here and let them know that we had a few formalities to do (first dances, cake cutting, dinner, etc) but I’d do my best to deliver what they requested. We ended the night with a packed dance floor, and I can safely say that I delivered as requested!

Jill and Mitch – I hope your honeymoon in Antigua was incredible and I can’t wait to touch base with you when you get back! It was truly an honor to be able to work with you both and to be able to celebrate with you and your friends and family!
