The love, laughter, and dancing kept coming at Benjamin and Allison’s wedding at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek. Their October 30th, 2021 wedding had it all: a romantic ceremony outdoors, extensive LED Lighting indoors, and even a photo booth for guests to make their own memories with the newlyweds.

Outdoor Ceremony on a Perfect Fall Day

The ceremony for this Central Florida wedding took place outside with a beautiful backdrop of palm trees and blue skies. The bride entered to Good for Me by Above & Beyond and she met her groom under a floral arch. After Ben and Allison exchanged their vows, they sealed their new union with a kiss. They made their way back up the aisle as husband and wife, while Soundwave DJ Justin played Happy Together by The Turtles.

Cocktails and Soundwave Lighting Design Magic

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails while listening to a custom playlist. The vibe was fun and easygoing, with songs like Knee Deep by the Zac Brown Band and Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison. The bride and groom enjoyed a sneak peak of their reception space before anyone else arrived, giving them a chance to see their reception design come to life.

Soundwave’s lighting design team had a lot of fun setting up the design for this space. The reception area featured 30 wall uplights in a soft white set against a soft blue drape. We provided over 15 Pinspots …each table centerpiece was illuminated, along with the wedding cake and newlywed table. Dance lights included large and small Moving Heads, with the larger Moving Heads mounted on totems.

The space was beautifully done and allowed for flexibility throughout the night. Whether the newlyweds needed soft, romantic lighting for their first dance – or dance lights and a booming bass for the afterparty – our design was ready for action.

Soundwave DJ Introductions and Formal Dances

Soundwave’s very own DJ Justin kicked off the introductions with One More Time by Daft Punk. Guests cheered as the parents of the newlyweds entered, followed by members of the wedding party. Finally, it was time to announce the new husband and wife!

The newlyweds took to the dance floor, enjoying their first dance to Twirl Me by Wildlight (feat. The Polish Ambassador and Ayla Nereo.) After the first dance, Allison was joined by her father for the father-daughter dance. Benjamin and his mother followed with their own dance, and then Ben shared a dance with Allison’s grandmother, swaying to Forever Young by Rod Stewart.

Dinner and Dancing, and AFTER PARTY for This Wedding at Hilton Bonnet Creek

After a welcome by the bride’s father and a blessing by the groom’s father, it was time to eat! Guests were treated to a plated dinner, and enjoyed heartfelt toasts from the best man and from Allison’s brother. Soundwave DJ Justin hosted an anniversary dance to songs like This I Promise You by *NSYNC and I Swear by John Montgomery. The couple cut their cake…and then it was time to dance the night away!

Unique to this wedding, the beginning of the reception, from 9:00 – 10:30pm, featured a music vibe of pop hits for all ages. Then at 10:30 the AFTER PARTY KICKED!  Soundwave DJ Justin went into total club mode with heavy mixing and scratching!  We turned off all the lights in the ballroom, increased the volume, turned on the subwoofer, and provided an extravaganza of dance lights changing to the music beat, mini Moving Heads and Large Scale Moving Heads  …total high energy with a mix of house, EDM, techno, and hip hop.

Some of the songs during the After Party included…

Cinema – Benny Benassi (Skrillex Remix) 
Everytime We Touch – Cascada (Hardwell & Maurice West Remix)
Get Low – Ying Yang Twins, Lil Jon 
Heads Will Roll – Yeah Yeah Yeahs (A-Trak Remix Radio) 
I Could Be the One – Avicii & Nicky Romero 
Pursuit of Happiness – (Extended Steve Aoki Remix) Kid Cudi                                  
Take Over Control – Afrojack

A highlight of the evening was our digital photo booth. Guests gathered around, doned some of the provided props, and smiled big. Our photo booth is always a hit at events, and gives guests a unique way to remember that special celebration!

Eventually, it was time to wind down the celebrations. This wedding at Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando was definitely one for the books, and we were honored to be part of this incredible day!

Natural Beauty in this Lake Nona Wedding

Olivia and Adonis’ wedding on October 9, 2021, was an elegant affair from beginning to end. The Lake Nona Country Club is a luxurious gem among Orlando wedding venues. Nestled in Lake Nona, Florida, this wedding property boasts lush gardens, a golf course, and spectacular views. The couple took advantage of every inch of this property with a ceremony on the grand lawn and then cocktails and dancing in the beautiful ballroom.

An Intimate Ceremony by the Lake

The groom beamed as the ceremony’s processional began. The blushing bride was accompanied by her mom and dad, and the trio walked down the aisle to Here Comes the Sun by the Midnight String Quartet. The couple exchanged vows by the lakeside, nestled under a cascading Florida Oak.

Bring Em Out!

The luxurious ballroom hosted the wedding’s cocktail hour, and the music featured a Lounge Mix from Soundwave Entertainment DJ Justin. Eventually, the guests entered the reception space, where the wedding party made a lively entrance to T.I.’s Bring Em Out. The Soundwave lighting team provided wall uplights in a very soft blush to create a warm, inviting atmosphere. The high-energy wedding party added an element of fun and excitement! Soundwave DJ Justin entertained from a designer DJ front board illuminated in white that really added a unique detail to the room. As the guests were asked to take their seats for dinner, the Maid of Honor and the Best Man delivered heartfelt toasts to the newlyweds. 

Dancing the Night Away with Soundwave DJ Justin

The party continued with favorite song requests, and the bride even had fun with her own turn at the mic! There was a particularly poignant moment during the night when Olivia enjoyed a dedicated dance with her four brothers to Isn’t She Lovely (acoustic) by Callum Wright. Snacks brought out made for a fun twist on keeping the party high energy as the wedding guests continued to dance the night away. It was a sparkling send-off as the bride and groom’s joy shined just as brightly as the sparklers!

With a photo booth, fantastic songs, and party props on the dance floor, Jessica and Alex’s wedding at Rosen Shingle Creek, July 17, 2021, was an event to remember! Rosen Shingle Creek Resort is located in beautiful Orlando, Florida.  This luxury resort is a favorite choice for many couples on their big day. Jessica and Alex decorated the area with sweeping florals, white linen, and soft touches of lavender lighting.

Every wedding is very special to Soundwave, but in this case, the bride is in the wedding industry and is a professional wedding planner with Just Marry.  We are always humbled when a fellow colleague turns to us to help make their dreams come true.

The ceremony was an intimate affair: the event was unplugged, live music flowed through the space, and the officiant was a close friend to the bride and groom. As they exchanged custom vows, their faces were glowing with love. Not ones to stop the celebration after a traditional first kiss, Jessica and Alex said their vows and then shared a flirtatious second kiss as husband and wife while making their down the aisle.

The Orlando bride and groom hosted an exquisite reception where music and lighting set the mood for a grand entrance. Beautiful white linen tables for both the newlywed table and the cake were lit with centerpiece pin spotlighting from Soundwave Entertainment. The dance floor was centered in the middle of the room, making it a focal point along with the 18 soft purple uplights that illuminated the space. Breathtaking floral arrangements with contemporary centerpiece designs from Raining Roses gave an exciting and welcoming feel.

Soundwave DJ Les Kopasz got the party started, playing “Party Up” by DMX and directing everyone’s attention to the entrance of the wedding party! As the wedding party entered and it was time for the new husband and wife to take center stage, you could hear: “Ladies and gentlemen, please stand…as I am honored to introduce for the second time today, the newlyweds: Mr. and Mrs. Van Hide!”

Guests enjoyed a delicious plated dinner as DJ Les Kopasz played a custom-curated mix of 2000s Pop Instrumental Mix. The bride and groom shared their first dance to “You Are In Love” by Taylor Swift. Halfway through the song, DJ Les Kopasz invited guests to join the couple in their first slow dance as husband and wife.

After dinner, guests flooded the dance floor and spent the evening dancing the night away with foam glow sticks, light-up glasses, and glowing props! As the night wound down, DJ Les Kopasz announced that the newlyweds would meet them for the after-party as everyone was ushered out of the ballroom. Alone for a brief moment, the bride and groom shared one final dance in private to “Lover” by Taylor Swift. While they gazed at one another, the wedding at Rosen Shingle Creek ended exactly how it started: with the couple just glowing.

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.
