LED Lighting Design

It was a lovely Thursday evening at the luxurious Isleworth Country Club celebrating a night of love for Tricia and Mark! These two said their “I Do’s” in front of family and friends during their romantic wedding, followed by a elegant reception. From Spark Fountains to Dancing On A Cloud coupled with stunning LED Lighting Design and DJ/MC by Soundwave, this wedding had it all. We can’t wait to relive the moments from this magical Isleworth Country Club Wedding with you!

Live Music Ceremony

The musicians filled the air with beautiful music for this lovely ceremony during the wedding prelude all the way up through cocktail hour. Dj and Owner Les Kopasz supplied a lavaliere microphone for the officiant so everyone could easily hear the ceremony.  Additionally, he provided courtesy announcements to guests with instructions on the unplugged ceremony and where to proceed after the ceremony concluded.  

A Stunning Ballroom

The ballroom was lavishly decorated with floral and candles by our good friends at Fairbanks Floral.  The color scheme was white, soft blue and soft purple with plenty of candles for a romantic glow.  Soundwave provided 18 LED Wall Uplights in soft purple to complement the decor and we Pinspotted the tall centerpieces to really make them pop. Additionally, we provided a custom monogram above the fireplace.

 

Introductions

Background music played over our speakers as the guests entered the reception room to take their seats.  DJ Les, who was behind our Designer Walnut Front Board, started off the introductions. He used our wired mic to announce the mother of the bride, the bride’s son, the groom’s two daughters, the flower girl, and the ring bearer during the song Every Mother’s Dream. Following them, the wedding party had some fun and entered to the song I’m Too Sexy. At last, it was time to welcome the new Mr. and Mrs. into the room to the song I Was Born to Love You. Little did these guests know the magic that was going to come next!

Magical First Dance

The most unforgettable first dance, was choreographed by Soundwave with our Spark Fountains and Dancing On A Cloud. The couple swept through our cloud feature to You Are The Reason! As if it was not already magical enough, our Spark Fountains were blasted strategically throughout their 1st dance song.

Playlist Ready

Following the introductions were welcoming speeches, and toasts to the bride and groom. Afterward, the guests enjoyed a tasty meal while listening to a custom playlist by the newlyweds featuring popular wedding songs like Amazed, A Thousand Years, All Of Me, On My Way To You, just to name a few. 

Dance The Night Away

As the dinner concluded the cake cutting began, which was beautifully lit up by one of our Pinspots. During this time, DJ Les played his choice of music. After, he set the vibes for a party, dimming the lights and taking requests as the dance floor opened up. DJ Les played requests such as California Love, Can’t Stop The Feeling, Get Low, Hips don’t Lie, Hot In Herre, In Da Club, and some Black Eyed Pea’s. It was a night full of Cha Cha Slide, Macarena, and the famous YMCA. 

Isleworth Sparkling Farewell

Give Me Everything by Pitbull came on for the newlyweds as their last dance with sparklers in tow!  We hope these newlyweds and their guests had as much fun as we did! Congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs on their Magical Isleworth Country Club Wedding!

Jessica + Nicholas

This pop song wedding for Jessica and Nicholas was just as much fun as it was beautiful! A gorgeous summer day was the perfect backdrop for perfect pink dresses and dashing blue tuxedos. Throw in a donkey and we were sold!

A Ceremony Under the Oak

The ceremony took place in the shade of an oak tree at Highland Manor in Apopka, Florida. The theme was light and airy with the bridesmaids in perfect dusty pink dresses. As guests arrived, a selection of instrumental songs by the Soundwave Owner / DJ/MC Les Kopasz played. Then, an instrumental version of Marry You, by Wedding Music Experts triggered the start of the wedding party processional. I Get to Love You by Ruelle filled the air as the stunning Bride walked to her Groom.  To be sure everyone could hear, the officiant used our clip-on lavaliere microphone discreetly tucked on his clothingAfter the “I Do’s,” the newlyweds were pronounced Husband and Wife and departed the ceremony to The Rest of Our Lives by the Light Heat.

Poppin’ Cocktail Hour & Reception Introduction

In the pre-function area, guests enjoyed a 2000s pop instrumental over conversations and drinks. Afterward, guests moved into the softly lit ballroom with pink hues provided by Soundwave Entertainment. To provide the newlyweds and their guests with top-notch entertainment, we had our reception system, one wire, one wireless mic, and Dance Party Lights. DJ Les played Dear Future Husband by Meghan Trainor played while the new Mr. and Mrs. entered the ballroom.

A Lovely Celebration 

After the introduction, it was time to begin the wedding traditions. Under a sparkling chandelier, the newlyweds danced their first dance to Blessed by Thomas Rhett.  A love pop selection adorned the background during their meal and You Are the Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne played while the couples cut into their cake. The Theme from a Summer Place by Percy Faith Orchestra, accompanied the father and Bride dance while What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong was the selection for the Groom and his mother. 

Top Pop Song Hits & Farewells

After the wedding traditions were over, DJ Les opened the dance floor, and requests for popular songs like, Fancy Like, Pour Some Sugar on Me, and Sweet Home Alabama played. Then, DJ Les really got the party started with fun selections like Cupid Shuffle, The Electric Slide, and Wobble! As the newlyweds and guests danced the night away, it was time for Sweet Caroline with a sparkler farewell to end the night with their guests. As their last private dance between the newlyweds said, it was a wonderful night at this Highland Manor 2000s pop song mix wedding. Congratulations to the lovely newlyweds!

John and Adam’s handsome tropical wedding took place at Paradise Cove.  The grooms’ celebration was nothing short of fun from beginning to end. They truly made March 7, 2022 a memorable night for all of their guests. From the ceremony to the grooms’ exit, we were ready to create the party atmosphere that they wanted.

Tropical Ceremony

The groom’s selected each song for the ceremony including prelude songs.  An assortment of piano covers by The Piano Guys set the mood for their tropical union.

Getting the Party Started 

The Groom’s made their grand entrance into the Key West styled pavilion at Paradise Cove.  They danced to Love Like This by Ben Rector.  John and Adam then welcomed their guests to their tropical celebration before a fabulous meal by Arthurs Catering.

Everyone on the Dance Floor 

Once the guests’ bellies and hearts were full, it was time to get everyone on the dance floor. Soundwave DJ Les Kopasz played throwbacks from the 80s to the 2000s and mixed them to really pump up the crowd.  The grooms and guests danced the night away until it was time to say goodnight. And of course, there was no better song to end the night with other than Bye Bye Bye by NSync! Congratulations to John and Adam on your special day, we loved celebrating it with you!

Margaritaville Wedding

Nicole and Jason’s wedding at Margaritaville Resort on March 26, 2022 was a perfect mix of romance and glamour. We always love working our magic at Margaritaville Resort and celebrating our couples. Nicole and Jason’s wedding was no exception!

Romantic Cocktail Hour

The newlywed’s cocktail hour was held in the tropical outdoor space. Guests enjoyed a summer pop vocalist mix by Soundwaves DJ and Owner Les Kopasz. Following the cocktail hour at this Margaritaville Resort wedding, guests moved to the Grand Ballroom. The room was beautifully decorated with romantic roses, gold accents, and white linen. Details glowed under the soft highlights of our 24 LED Wall Uplights. We also created a Monogram in Lights that was projected on the main focal wall.

Glamour in Paradise and Surprise Spark Fountains

DJ Les Kopasz added to the glam when he introduced the wedding party from our upgraded all-white sound system with enhanced dance lights…we call her The Optimus! The newlyweds shared their first dance to From the Ground Up by Dan and Shay.  As the bride and groom swayed to their 1st dance, Soundwave remotely set off two Spark  Fountains.  Spark Fountains are totally safe and smokeless, and cold to the touch; the technology is amazing.  The guests were in awe as the sparks shot 10 feet in the air on the left and right of the couple creating a spectacular visual display!  It was a picture-perfect moment for a magical night!

DJ Les was given creative liberty to choose most of the playlist, so he had a blast with keeping the dance floor packed as the guest had fun with glow sticks. As the night wore on, guests danced to a collection of classic hits and new tunes. Finally, it was time for everyone to say goodnight. Guests headed outside to wait for the newlyweds, and Nicole and Jason enjoyed a private last dance in a quiet ballroom. We had so much fun celebrating the newlyweds at their Margaritaville Resort wedding – congratulations to Nicole and Jason!

Geena and Mike’s Central Florida wedding was a lovely and fun affair from beginning to end. Held on March 26, 2022, their wedding at the Lake Mary Events Center featured plenty of opportunities for unique lighting designs from our experts at Soundwave. This is always a fun venue to transform and we were excited to return to one of our favorite stomping grounds.

Soft like the sky in lighting design
Geena and Mike opted for an intimate ceremony on their special day. Their ceremony space featured floor-to-ceiling windows and endless amounts of natural light. In the ballroom, we brought gentle color our LED lights, which illuminated the room in a quiet blue that reflected the wedding colors. Our Pinspots highlighted the newlywed table and the wedding cake. We also used the lighting design to frame the newlyweds’ silver accents. From every detail, we complemented Geena and Mike’s vision for their wedding at the Lake Mary Events Center.

Cool in blue
After the ceremony at the all-white floral trellis, it was time to get the party started. Soundwave Entertainment’s DJ David Regueiro set the stage for a grand entrance into the ballroom. As guests took their seats, Raise Your Glass, by Pink kicked off the wedding party introductions and the reception.  DJ David introduced the newlyweds just before they shared their first dance as husband and wife to Lifetime, Justin Bieber.

When the bride becomes the DJ
As the night went on, guests enjoyed a few surprises from this fun bride and groom. At one point, the bride even took a turn behind the DJ booth! Geena was a natural at having fun on the mic and giving her friends and family some dance mixes. The laughter was contagious as the guests danced the night away. Celebrations ended with final final closing song of Don’t Stop Believing, Journey. Then, it was time to really say “don’t stop believing” in this magical evening with a sparkler sendoff for Geena and Mike.

April showers bring May flowers, but on April 2, 2022 the showers brought a change of plans! Sandra and Nick were all set to have a gorgeous outdoor ceremony for their elegant wedding with party vibes at Mission Inn. But the rain quickly brought the ceremony indoors! Our team had no problem switching gears and we seamlessly transitioned to an indoor ceremony. Thankfully, none of the elegance was lost. And soon, guests were drinking and dancing with the bride and groom for a night to remember.

The Set Up

Ceremony location change? No problem! We set up our ceremony system, complete with a speaker and lavaliere mic for the officiant in the ballroom, among the reception tables. La Hacienda at Mission Inn is a gorgeous setting for any event, but this elegant wedding with party vibes was next level. The themes of blue and gold shone beautifully throughout. Our 18 LED wall uplights set to soft blue tied the whole look together. What a difference they made to the ambiance! The cake was highlighted with 1 pinspot. To complete everything, the bride and groom’s names were displayed on the wall in lights.

Saying “I Do”

While Sandra and Nick might have been disappointed with the rain changing their plans, they sure didn’t look it! We could tell that they were excited to be married, and that was what mattered most to them. The show must go on! As live music from a harpist floated gently through the air, the elegant wedding with party vibes was underway. Finally, the couple went from engaged to married as the officiant called for a kiss. After, their guests cheered with teary eyes.

Can We Dance Yet?

With a quick transition to reception, guests found their seats in the ballroom. It was time for this elegant wedding to turn up the party vibes! First, DJ David Regueiro put on I’ve Got A Feelin’ by the Black Eyed Peas and announced the wedding party and newlyweds. Sandra and Nick went right into their first dance to Growing Old with You by Restless Road. After the parent dances, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. We loved sharing in these sweet, sentimental moments! Meals were served to a custom playlist of instrumental music. The couple cut their wedding cake to Sugar by Maroon 5.

Turn It Up!

After cutting their cake, the bride and groom gave a thank you speech to their guests. Next, DJ David played the anniversary dances to honor the couples who were in attendance. After all, marriage was the reason that we were all together that day! Finally, the lights turned down and we knew what that meant! A high-energy mix blew through the room with hits like Baby Got Back by Sir Mix a Lot, Electricity by Dua Lipa, Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond, and What is Love by Haddaway. The mix was absolutely perfect for their elegant wedding with party vibes. Next, The Cupid Shuffle had everyone up on their feet. And Wobble had us heading to the bar for another drink! DJ David kept it comin’ with more from 70s rock, the 80s and 90s, early 2000’s chart-toppers, and current hits.

Say Goodbye

What a beautiful evening this elegant wedding with party vibes had been.  DJ David called for the last dance. Don’t Stop Believing by Journey played like an anthem and all of the guests joined together on the dancefloor. The guests sang and danced their hearts out! After the final song, guests gathered their belongings and got ready for the send-off. Meanwhile, the new couple shared a private moment on the dancefloor. With the entire wedding ballroom to themselves, This Is It by Scott McCreery gave them a quiet, intimate moment to take in their night together. Finally, they ran outside under a shower of sparklers and shared one final kiss at their elegant wedding with party vibes. Then, with very full hearts, they went off to start their life together.

In the last few weeks of Florida winter, on February 25, 2022, Rebecca and Aaron tied the knot at The Alfond Inn, Winter Park. The couple selected a gorgeous color palette of deep colors like black, gold and crimson throughout their outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. In addition, they requested fun pop hits all about love from artists like Coldplay and Taylor Swift. The combination was perfect for their romantic winter wedding, and we loved every upbeat moment!

But First, Set Up

Hours before all the festivities, Soundwave Entertainment arrived onsite with our crew.  First, we set up the officiant’s lavaliere microphone and speakers for the outdoor ceremony. Meanwhile, the ballroom was quickly becoming a romantic winter wedding wonderland. Alongside the rich colors on the tabletops, we set up Centerpiece Pinspots Lights to illuminate the beautiful floral. The walls appeared to glow with soft candlelight thanks to our 24 LED Uplights set to Candle Light Color. This addition has always been a popular choice among our clients, and it added so much depth and warmth to Rebecca and Aaron’s wedding! With the reception sound system, we also set up our Optimus Luxury Sound System. This is an all white, grand sound system offered exclusively by our very own, DJ Les Kopasz.

Let the Ceremony Begin

To start the ceremony, “Ladies and gentlemen, the ceremony is beginning” was announced gently over the speakers. Guests quickly finished their mingling and turned their attention toward the aisle. Dearly Beloved – Kingdom Hearts, by Vitamin String Quartet welcomed the guests of honor and wedding party. Next, A Thousand Years, by The Piano Guys stirred the emotions of everyone in attendance as Rebecca glided down the aisle on her father’s arm. After the vows and the kiss, Whole Lives, by Jake Scott ushered the ceremony out into the cocktail hour. While guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, Soundwave played a custom instrumental mix of love songs from both old and new artists – perfect for a romantic winter wedding.

Celebration Central

Never Gonna Give You Up, by Rick Astley played as the wedding party rick-rolled down into the reception area. This fun energy continued through the romantic winter wedding after an intimate moment between the bride and groom. If You Love Her by Forest Blakk ft. Megan Trainor was the anthem for the newlywed’s first dance. Then came speeches, the meal, dances with the parents, and the cutting of the cake. Finally, it was time to dance!

Get Up Outta’ Your Seat!

DJ Les fired off hits from Taylor Swift, classics from the ’80s, jams from the ’90s, hits from the 2000s and today’s chart-toppers. We even got some great photo ops with crowd participation dances like Cha Cha Slide and Cupid Shuffle. It was such a fun, flirty atmosphere we won’t soon forget. DJ Les made the call for last dance, and everyone poured onto the dance floor for a wild round of Party in the USA, by Miley Cyrus. Then, we dropped it way back, with slow, soft music as guests left the reception to line up for the farewell. But first, Rebecca and Justin shared a private last dance to Come Away with Me. Finally, they made their way outside to their waiting guests, and ran off hand-in-hand into their future together.

On a gorgeous late afternoon in the Florida winter, Kellie and Franklin stood in the courtyard of Bella Collina and said “I do” among all of their family and friends. The sunset was low in the sky, touching the very tops of the trees. Its soft glow cast glittery rays of sunlight across all of the guests. This was the perfect start to a beautiful golden Bella Collina wedding! The night only got better from there.

Courtyard Ceremony

The outdoor scenery at Bella Collina was simply breathtaking. The grandiose exterior wall of stonework, accented with gorgeous architecture, was a stunning backdrop for any wedding. Unquestionably, Kellie and Franklin’s special day on Sunday, January 16, 2022 was no exception. The ceremony was elegant, with beautifully placed floral blooms. The bride and groom looked simply divine in their traditional wedding attire. You couldn’t have asked for a more picture-perfect day!

Soundwave Set Up

After stepping into the Bella ballroom, you could see that our team had been hard at work. In the background, 24 LED Wall Uplights set to “warm glow” for this golden Bella Collina wedding shone brilliantly. They bathed the room in the warmth of gentle candlelight. In addition, we highlighted the wedding cake with a Pinspot Light. After our couples spend so much care and consideration choosing their cakes, we don’t want them to go unnoticed!

Time to Celebrate

As the guests filtered into the reception, Soundwave Owner DJ Les Kopasz was ready to go. First came the introductions of the wedding party and newlyweds. And can you guess what song they had picked for this moment? That’s right, Golden, by Harry Styles welcomed them to the room and straight into their first dance. Coming Home, by Leon Bridges had everyone feeling sentimental as the new couple held each other on the dance floor. After welcomes, speeches, and a blessing, it was time to eat! During dinner, we played a music mix based on the iconic soundtrack from “Guardians of the Galaxy.” It has always been a crowd favorite! Next, as the meal finished, the newlyweds each danced with their parents. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house! Then, we took a sharp left turn for some much-needed dancing relief!

Turn It Up

Is it just us, or has Whitney Houston’s iconic “IIIIIIII wanna dance with somebody!” become the universal call to the dance floor? This golden throwback was an excellent kick off for dancing. From there, DJ Les kept up the older hits from artists like The Beatles, Elton John and even 80’s hairbands. In addition, current hits came into play. The couple requested early 2000s pop hit like “Yeah” by Usher, and DJ Les made it all fit seamlessly for a night to remember. Our dance lights brought the perfect touch of energy against the warm, cozy ambiance of our golden Bella Collina wedding.

That’s a Wrap!

Finally, after everyone has danced the night away, DJ Les played our second to last song, Don’t Stop Believing, by Journey. After this crowd favorite, the call for final song came in with Shut Up and Dance, by Walk the Moon. Whew! What an unforgettable evening. We played soft music as guests filtered through the exit to prepare for the bride and groom’s send off. Meanwhile, the newlyweds stole a special intimate moment for a private dance to La Vie En Rose, by Louis Armstrong. Lastly, guests held their sparklers high as Kellie and Franklin ran hand-in-hand towards their happily ever after.

On December 27, 2021, just a few days after Christmas, Cary and David said “I Do” at Paradise Cove, Orlando, with all of the personal touches you’d want in a Magical Winter Wedding. Complete with whimsical Disney Instrumental music and Harry Potter themes throughout, it was a night to remember.

The Outdoor Ceremony

First, a harpist welcomed the guests in with warm, inviting melodies. Next, like a scene from your favorite action movie, “The Final Countdown” by Europe interjected as the groom and his groomsmen pulled up in a speed boat. After their arrival, the harpist resumed the ceremony soundtrack for the bridesmaids, the bride, and the recessional. We loved the view at the altar with the tall trees, hanging Spanish moss, and lakeside background. Don’t forget, outdoor doesn’t have to mean bad acoustics! Thanks to our ceremony speaker system and the lavaliere microphone worn by the officiant, guests heard the vows loud and clear.

Time to Celebrate

Afterward, we moved underneath the pavilion, lit up with twinkle lights as far as the eye could see. The ambiance was truly perfect for a magical winter wedding. The sweetheart table had quotes from Harry Potter and his and hers magic wands. No doubt that Ollivander himself couldn’t have picked a more perfect setting to suit our bride and groom! They shared their first dance to “The Way You Look Tonight” by Tony Bennett. Next, our reception system of speakers and microphones allowed for flawless speeches from both the maid of honor and best man.

While we might not have actual floating candles like at Hogwarts, we did bring some magic of our own with Soundwave LED Lighting. Thoughtfully placed around the reception, each one gave off a candlelit, ethereal glow. In the background, 4 LED Lights amped up the winter vibes with blue tones on the trees. And we can’t forget the cake! But how could you, when it’s lit up with our cake spot light? Music and lighting to fit the mood, plus good food, made for a dazzling and memorable magical winter wedding. If that wasn’t magical enough, the plated meal was enjoyed during a custom Disney Instrumental Mix from our own DJ / MC Ray Vales. Afterward, the cake cutting was to “Hedwig’s Theme” by John Williams from Harry Potter. The music was just perfect to make our Potterhead bride and groom dreams come true!

Get Your Groove On

Regardless of your favorite part of weddings, when that bass starts pumping, and our dance lights start poppin, you start dancing! DJ/ MC Ray Vales delivered a mix of 60-80’s rock, country, Latin vibes with salsa and merengue, and 90’s-2000’s Pop and Hip Hop. Tons of crowd participation favorites kept us on our toes with classics like “Cupid Shuffle,” “Electric Slide,” “Cha Cha Slide,” and “Shout.” Special requests from the bride and groom included hits like “Shake Your Body” by Michael Jackson, “Right Thurr” by Chingy, “Lean Wit It, Rock Wit It” by Dem Franchise Boyz, and even “Fat Lip” by Sum 41.

Among all the dancing was another crowd favorite: our Digital Photo Booth! It captured magical moments from guests and texted the pictures instantly. What a great way to break up the evening while keeping the energy high! Also, the prop table provided extra laughs for each shot.

Send Off

DJ Ray Vales made the last call for dancing, and everyone gave it their all to “Never Gonna Give You Up” by none other than Rick Astley. What a great night! Guests gathered their belongings and headed to the exit. The new Mr. and Mrs. Valdes shared one last Harry Potter tribute moment with their wands to seal their Magical Winter wedding. The bride and groom waved goodbye to their friends and family as a symbolic cascade of bubbles and good fortune rained down. And the day ended just as it started, with a speed boat zooming off into the horizon. Congratulations, Cary and David! May all your dreams come true.

For this wedding at the Alfond Inn, the bride and groom combined the luxurious greenery of an outdoor ceremony with the warm candle-light vibes of an indoor reception. Marissa and Michael tied the knot on November 13, 2021, in a gorgeous outdoor garden. The bride, groom and guests partied all night under a picturesque warm glow. Dancing came easily with a perfect mix of throwbacks and current hits to create a night to remember for this perfectly glowing romantic wedding.

Gorgeous Outdoor Ceremony

The wedding festivities started outside in the Alfond Inn garden, surrounded by beautiful natural greenery and a warm Florida Fall sky. After performing ceremony sound checks, we began the custom instrumental selection to set the romantic mood as guests arrived. The processional started with a love song. Marissa, the beautiful bride, walked down the aisle to “Canon in D” by Brooklyn Duo. The bride and groom stood on the steps of the terrace and said “I Do” among family and friends. Guests didn’t miss a single word thanks to our discreet lavaliere microphone, which blended seamlessly into the collar of the officiant’s outfit for a clean look. Cocktails followed with a cool, upbeat mix of Jazz Pop Instrumental music.

Cozy Meets High-Energy Reception

Inside, the ballroom was illuminated with soft, candle-light vibes. Our 24 LED Wall Upights lining the room created the perfect ambiance for a glowing romantic wedding. After DJ David had the honor of introducing the parents and wedding party, Mr. and Mrs. Gover entered the reception to resounding applause and smiling faces. Next, they shared their first dance to “Make You Feel My Love” by Adele.  Our lighting features are an excellent way to direct your guests’ attention, and all eyes were on the newlyweds’ table with two pinspot lights. We also highlighted the cake table and six tall centerpieces so all of the little details wouldn’t be lost. DJ David’s sound equipment was shielded by our Designer Boxwood Front Board to tie in the whole look of the room.

Dancing and More Dancing

The couple requested a custom mix of 70 – 80’s Rock, some Disco/Funk, 90’s and early 2000’s Pop & Hip Hop, and current hits. DJ David delivered with clean, radio edited versions of some of our favs, plus special picks from bride and groom. “Levitating” by Dua Lipa, “Danza Kuduro” by Don Omar ft. Lucenzo, the classic “Shout” by Otis Day, and so much more made their list. After drinks, dance, food, dance, cake and more dance, it was time to say goodbye. We danced one last time to none other than Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” Then, guests lit sparklers and cheered as we sent the new Mr. and Mrs. Gover off. Finally, Marissa and Michael shared one last private dance under the glowing romantic lighting, “You Are In Love” by Taylor Swift.
