Stefani and Frank’s Backyard Wedding in Palatine

Most of the events we do at Paul Michaels Events take place indoors, so its always nice when we get a breath of fresh air from the great outdoors.

Thankfully DJ Brian had that pleasure providing our wedding DJ services for the wedding reception of Stefani and Frank. It took place at their beautiful home out in Palatine, IL. From the moment you stepped foot into their backyard, you were immediately welcomed to an array of amazing homemade food, tasty drinks, and super fun games. It was the best of both worlds, giving you the feeling of a big celebration along with the intimacy of a family gathering. The amount of energy that radiated from the dance floor throughout the night was that of a wedding with 10 times the guest count.  Stefani and Frank’s friends and family showed up to celebrate!

The night was filled with laughs to make you fall out of your chair and passion that would make tears fall from your eyes. As one could imagine, all the special emotions felt throughout the night culminated on the dance floor. It was a great sight to see everyone jam out to the tunes featuring some throwbacks from Ska, the Beatles and Paul Simon.

We thank Stefani and Frank for giving us the opportunity to assist them in creating some life long memories.

Annie and Alex’s Destination Wedding in Grand Beach, MI

In times like these, it’s inevitable that couples trying to have the wedding of their dreams will face countless challenges. Thankfully Annie and Alex discovered Paul Michaels Events, which had the pleasure of providing their services for their celebration of marriage in early October 2020.

Their wedding took place in the beautiful, modest village of Grand Beach, Michigan. It started off with a wonderful ceremony near the village clubhouse. The ceremony was filled with familiar faces and voices, with the bride’s brother serving as their pastor,  and the worship pastor from their home church was able to provide delightful musical selections.

The reception took place in the backyard of a lovely house down the road. It may have looked small but looks can be deceiving!

We sent two of our DJs – DJ Brian and DJ Shannon who added a new level of energy and charisma, keeping the guests delighted all night long.

No dance floor, no problem! For this COVID-era wedding, we kept the music bumping, while guests social distanced all night. Our lights electrified the fun lawn games, and with this amazing group of people, the party never stopped!

For Grand Beach being such a small town, we’re pretty sure that this event ranks near the top of the list for the most incredible parties in the area, and we’re over the top that Paul Michaels Events could help make that happen! It was an amazing experience to be a part of Annie and Alex’s special day, and Paul Michaels Events hopes to be a part of many more to come for this couple and their friends!

Taylor and JP’s Wedding at Northfork Farm in Oswego Illinois

What an incredible wedding!

Last weekend DJ Paul Michaels and Assistant Evan celebrated with Taylor and JP for their rustic wedding at Northfork Farm in Oswego, IL. It was an excellent event and we were honored and proud to have provided our entertainment and wedding DJ services. 

We’ve worked at Northfork Farm a few times and have always had a blast. They have a beautiful venue for these summer weddings. Taylor and JP had held their ceremony outside. It was a serene setting that allowed for us to overlook some beautiful pastures. Horses ran around while the ceremony was taking place. It is great to get away from the city settings sometimes. 

What a view! After the ceremony, everyone moved into the main tent for cocktail hour. Now this wasn’t just your typical tent (like one might set up for a one time event). The tent at Northfork is a permanent structure setup on concrete…plus, it event has air conditioning and all of the comforts of a more traditional wedding reception venue..    

After a slightly delayed start to the festivities, we got the dance floor rocking, and kept it that way until the very last minute of the wedding celebration! 

If you’re looking for something a little different for your wedding or wedding reception, we highly recommend heading out to Oswego at Northfork Farm. I you like, we can assist in coordinating the venue for you. Just reach out to us by clicking here.

Jessica and Dan’s Wedding at Heritage Prairie Farm in Elburn

You’re in good hands

I think we can all agree that on the first day of your new job, you don’t necessarily expect to meet your future life partner, right? Well, not quite the case for Jessica and Dan. This couple met on their first day working at Allstate in June 2011. They clearly were in good hands!

For Jessica and Dan’s wedding at Heritage Prairie Farm in Elburn, we provided ceremony services in their separate barn (separate from the reception tent). The barn is setup beautifully for ceremonies! (Check out the pictures below).  Afterwards, we moved to the greenhouse to stay warm for the cocktail hour, before moving to the tent for speeches, dinner, and dancing of course!

We got the party started, and kept the dance floor packed until the end of the night!

Check out the pictures below for a quick recap of their wedding!

Laura and Gary’s Northfork Farm Wedding

This past weekend, assistant Michael and I (Paul) just wrapped up Laura and Gary’s wedding at Northfork Farm in Oswego, IL.

This was our first time at Northfork Farm, which was honestly a great venue if you’re looking for a farm style wedding venue. We had the ceremony outside with horses running around in the background of the ceremony (behind Laura and Gary and the officiant), and then moved to the outdoor patio for cocktail hour. After cocktail hour, everyone moved into the tent (which did have air conditioning – unlike many tent receptions) where the area was beautifully decorated with their wedding colors (teal and white with some grey tones). We provided uplighting for this wedding, which really pulled the decor together.

This was not only a beautiful wedding, but also a really fun wedding (as can be seen in the pictures below). Once we started dancing, the party didn’t stop until the very end!

Laura and Gary: I love that you knew that you wanted to hire us before even meeting with me after seeing us in action at Marc and Kara’s wedding. It was great working with you, and we’re looking forward to seeing you at other friends’ weddings in the future!
