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.
