Reception Recap: Crowne Plaza (Lauren & Joe)

Published 01/04/2017

Lauren & Joe found by using WeddingWire! After a few email exchanges, we scheduled a meeting with myself and DJ Rick.  Unfortunately, the snow postponed our meeting so we have to move it to the following week.  When we met with Lauren & Joe we learned about there starry night theme and that they are HUGE pro-wrestling fans.  Wrestling was incorporated all throughout their reception especially in their music selections.  They also knew their first dance song was to Billy Joel's Just the Way You Are, which it was.  We talked the music they wanted to hear and learned they were fans of oldies and rock music.  Lauren's mother was very involved in the planning and decision making, but we did not have the pleasure of meeting her until the wedding day since she lives in New Jersey.  We spoke with Lauren's mother after our meeting with the couple to go over any questions she might have had for us.  Here are some of the highlights from their wedding as well as their music selections.

"Arpeggio did such a great job at my daughter's wedding!! The lighting was the perfect accent to the room and Rick was able to make adjustments to get just the shade of blue that we were looking for. The planning tools were so easy to use so that we had the perfect blend of music so that everyone could have fun dancing. Debbie made the contract process very easy and sent timely reminders to keep all of the details straight during the planning process. With their help, my daughter and son-in-law had the wedding that they envisioned!"~Caryn (Mother of the Bride)
