Brandi Weaver and Aaron Welch Wedding 11/12/2011

I returned to the Chateau Bellevue, on November 12, 2011, which is one of my favorite wedding facilities in Austin for the wedding of Brandi Weaver and Aaron Welch. After the ceremony conducted on the veranda, the party moved inside, where Brandi and Aaron did their first dance to "Lullabye" by The Dixie Chicks after introduction of the bridal party (while "Raise Your Glass" by Pink played).

As you can see from the above picture, we had a lighted monogram for the dancefloor.

We also did pink uplighting for the room.

After dinner and toasts, Brandi and Aaron went to cut the cake and the dance floor opened up.

Kimberly and Andrew Marcus Wedding 10/22/2011

We had an awesome wedding at The Gardens of Cranesbury View in New Braunfels, TX on 10/22/2011. All of the planning had to be done via email or phone as the bride was in Switzerland and the groom was in Pennsylvania. For this wedding the color scheme was fall colors, so we used our uplighting package to add a warm glow to the facility, as you can see from the below picture:

After the introductions, the bride and groom went right to their first dance, "Faithfully" by Journey.

Special thanks goes to Laura Cathey for assisting me at this wedding.

I had a fantastic time at this wedding and from the below review (available here), so did the bride and groom:
"Greg was an excellent DJ. He had asked for song and genre suggestions prior to the wedding, and he fulfilled all of these (even the songs we requested mere days beforehand).
He provided the desired amount of interaction with the guests and announcing the different events during the evening, without going overboard. Our guests were dancing constantly after dinner, which is a credit to him keeping the right music playing.
He even surprised us by recording the best man and maid of honor toasts, which is something we'll treasure amongst our favorite wedding mementos.
We also used him to provide uplighting in the room, which again was exactly what we wanted (even though we had a difficult time describing it to him, he fine-tuned the color to create the desired effect).
I would highly recommend GGC to anyone looking for DJ services in the area."
