Alfond Inn Tag

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.

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.

The Alfond Inn, nestled in the heart of Winter Park, was transformed into a green wonderland for the enchanted forest wedding of Matilda and Sean. Soundwave provided DJ and extensive LED Lighting Design to bring the bride and groom’s vision to life.  We worked closely with Wedding Planner, Pavone Events, and Raining Roses, florist, to create this fairytale reception.

A gentle abundance of soft, romantic LED Wall Uplighting set the stage for these two lovebirds. The focal point of the Lighting Design was Wall Texturing.  The Wall Texturing is how we illuminated the tree / forest design on the main focal wall.  To illuminate trees on the entire wall, we used 3 high powered LED projection machines with “forest” gobos.  Additionally, the oversized centerpiece trees and floral were illuminated with LED lights. Twenty-four Wall Uplights in candlelight color gave the room a sweeping glow.

Soundwave Owner DJ Les Kopasz kicked off the reception by introducing the wedding party to “Jump In The Line” by Harry Belafonte. The newlyweds then danced to “A Thousand Years (ft Evynne Hollens and Lindsey Stirling)” by Peter Hollens. 

DJ Les played a custom list of Celtic music as the guests enjoyed their dinner. The guests enjoyed the Newlywed Game, featuring a host of questions about Matilda and Sean. Afterward, the bride and groom cut the cake to Eat It by Weird Al.

Guests hit the dance floor for a high-energy mix of Alternative, Disco/Funk, 70’s rock, and throwback ’80s-’90s. The night came to a close with the lights dimming and the aptly-titled Closing Time by Semisonic. Then, guests escorted the bride and groom outside for a final goodbye under the stars, closing the evening on this Celtic-inspired, enchanted forest wedding at the Alfond Inn.

Katie & Ryan’s Alfond Inn wedding equal parts sophisticated celebration and epic party! The Alfond Inn, nestled in Winter Park, Florida, is a popular Orlando wedding venue. The Inn is well-known for exquisite culinary and service. The Alfond features a stunning lawn lined with gardens ideal for outdoor ceremonies, conservatory for cocktails, and stunning ballroom.

The couple exchanged vows in a picture perfect ceremony with the conservatory serving as the alter backdrop. Katie was a vision in her long sleeve lace gown, as she walked down the aisle to ‘Turning Page’ by Sleeping at Last.

Cocktail hour was held in the conservatory, featuring a soaring glass domed ceiling. This space is truly one of the highlights of the Alfond Inn.

The ballroom was elegantly draped in white and swagged in soft taupe. We provided full room LED Wall Uplighting in a warm candlight color. Soundwave DJ Ray Vales introduced Mr. & Mrs. Totten and the couple shared their first dance to an oldie but goodie – ‘Strangers in the Night’ by Frank Sinatra.

The evening was rounded out with toasts, dinner, cake, and a VERY busy dance floor! This crowd wasted little time in their seats, and danced all night! DJ Ray kept everyone on their feet, playing classics like ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ by Van Morrison all the way to modern day hits by artists such as Dua Lipa & Ariana Grande. To close the night, guests filtered out to ‘Closing Time’ by Semisonic before seeing the couple off with a sparkler sendoff. A fitting exit for this sophisticated Alfond Inn celebration!
