The Collingswood Grand Ballroom

The Collingswood Grand Ballroom

By Design Entertainment was thrilled to provide music, entertainment, and photo booth services for Mr. and Mrs. Matt and Jen Conicella at the Collingswood Grand Ballroom!  It was AMAZING!  The staff was great to work with and the place looked gorgeous.  Jen and Matt’s guests enjoyed cocktail hour upstairs before the curtains were opened to reveal the New MR. and Mrs. Conicella enjoying their first dance on the floor to “In Your Eyes”, by Peter Gabriel.  After the first dance we asked the guests to make their way down the grand staircase to the main ballroom so we could begin our formal introductions.

The Grand Entrance

Matt and Jen love their Rock n roll so we kicked off the Introductions for the parents with one of Matt’s must plays, “Nothin’ But a Good TIme”, by POISON.  The bridal party was announced to Huey Lewis and The News and Jen and Matt came in to a roaring applause of friends and family with “Back in Black”, an AC/DC favorite!  Shortly after dinner we got the dance floor hopping with some classic oldies before jumping into Jen’s favorite 80′s tunes!  From there we progressed to some newer songs highlighted with “Happy”, by Pharrel and eventually ending the night with a crowd favorite, “Don’t You” by Simple Minds!  (CAN YOU SAY BREAKFAST CLUB?)

The Photo Booth

The Photo Booth that we provided was a huge hit! CLICK HERE Nothing but smiles coming out of the fully pipe and draped enclosure highlighted with a red uplit curtain entrance to compliment Jen’s black, white, and a splash of red!  Heidi (aka My Photo Booth Babe) assisted all the guests and put together a great scrapbook that everyone signed and commented on next to their hilarious photo strips for Jen and Matt to take home at the end of the evening.  These memories will last forever!

Matt & Jen also decided to ask their friends to post pics to #conicellaweds for a little social media fun at the Collingswood Grand Ballroom!  Was a great night! #njweddingdj #bydesigndj #njphotobooth

The ceremony was held in the facilities brand new chapel in Sicklerville NJ and man is it beautiful!  You have to check it out if you are looking for an all in one location for your wedding!  After the gorgeous ceremony that featured some Mexican and American traditions it was into the main building for cocktail hour which featured an amazing selection of food and spirits.

Then it was onto the reception!

We introduced the Bridal party to “Danza Kuduro”, by Don Omar and Jen and Aaron walked were announced too “Ando Bien Pedo”, by Banda Los Recoditos.  (You will have to do the translation yourself on that one!)  After the spot lighted entrance they had their first dance to, “Close to You” by Prince Royce!

Dinner was an amazing bacon wrapped filet or salmon and I was lucky enough to try both!  SO GOOD BRIGALIAS!  The night ended with a packed dance floor around Jen & Aaron as everyone sang, “The Time Of My Life” (Dirty Dancing) as loud as they could.  Magic!

FELICIDADES Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Perez!

A Great Sweet 16!

Sweet 16 A GREAT SUCCESS!!!

Heidi, Steve, and I had a great time working with Olivia during her Sweet 16 party on Friday night!  Olivia, her mom, and dad sat with me a week or so before the event to discuss all the details and song choices for the evening and her friends had a blast with her.  By Design Entertainment supplied our DJ service along with Intelligent and room lighting as well as our Photobooth accented with PINK!  We gave Olivia a huge Grand Entrance with spotlights and one of her favorite songs “Clarity” by Zedd.  Steve kept the dance floor thumping with our booming sound system and his mixing skills as I kept the lights in sync.  Heidi took care of the Photobooth guests and memory Scrapbook that was put together with our photostrips and signed by Olivia’s friends. This was Olivia’s dream party and we were so thrilled to be a part of it.
