Jennifer and Peter--what a couple!! We first met Jennifer and Peter several months ago. They had so many questions and ideas and we were thrilled to think that we would be part of their special day. Jennifer and Peter showed their true colors when their venue was changed just a few weeks prior to their wedding date!! Yep, that's the truth--they had to find an entirely new place for their ceremony, cocktail hour and reception!! Fortunately, Jill O'Boyle at Champions Ballroom was able to step in and take care of Jennifer and Peter. They had a great ceremony at the terrace at the Inn at Sea Pines--the rain held off and the weather was gorgeous! The guests moved into the foyer and enjoyed a cocktail hour and then the ballroom was open for Jennifer and Peter's grand entrance. Jennifer and Peter danced around and had a great time to a Lyle Lovett tune. Jennifer then danced with her dad to a sweet song and then broke out into "Mustang Sally!" They thrilled the crowd! Dinner and dancing soon followed. Fabio Ventura took some incredible photos that Jennifer and Peter will treasure forever!

Hi Liz and Jamie
Thank you so much!! You guys did a fantastic job...you surpassed any expectations that we had. My dad (not a big fan of weddings) commented multiple times on how great Jamie's work was..especially the love story. I was wondering if it would be possible to get a copy of the story to put in our wedding memory book? Thanks again..if you need a reference let me know

Gretchen and Gus are one wild couple!! Well, Gus is wild and Gretchen just cleans up after him! Gretchen and Gus live in Arizona with Gus' sons, but they decided to have their wedding in Hilton Head. The ShoreHouse at the Hilton Resort hosted a great party--Alison Ward and her crew are always spectacular! Gretchen and Gus exchanged their vows on the beach and then their guests enjoyed cocktails at the ShoreHouse. Gretchen and Gus entered their reception with a Bang--they were announced and then shared their beautiful first dance and then the boys joined them for a quick dance to Apache--it was awesome!! The love story for Gretchen and Gus was quite interesting--Gus had his own version, some of it was even based on fact! Gretchen and Gus and their guests had a great time dancing and enjoying a beautiful South Carolina night. It was a pleasure to work with Mark and Lisa Staff again--they will provide incredible photographic memories for Gretchen and Gus. Gretchen and Gus ended their night with a special dance to Let's Get it On and then the party continued in the Hilton XO Lounge. We look forward to keeping in touch with Gretchen and Gus and we wish Gretchen best of luck with her three crazy men!!

Liz and Ryan--they are so great! They knew they wanted to have a very detailed reception and we really tried to work hard for them. We did scripted intros for their wedding party--they were a fun crew and they were so cool with Ryan and Liz poking a little fun at them. In addition, each bridesmaid/groomsman couple had their own TV theme song that Liz and Ryan selected for them. We also did separate photo montages for the father/daughter dance, the mother/son dance and the surprise bouquet presentation to Liz's mom. Ches at The Westin Hilton Head set up a great site for Liz and Ryan's ceremony. We were thrilled to work with Jen at Port Royal Club. They hosted a great cocktail time and reception. And, of course, John Brackett and Brent Nelson were spot-on for photography and videography! Liz and Ryan have been together since their college days at Clemson and they moved to the Hilton Head area about five years ago. We are thrilled that they live here in our home town, so hopefully we will see them again and can stay in touch!!
From Liz and Ryan
Jamie & Liz...we can not thank you enough! Ryan and I had THE perfect wedding on THE perfect day and thought that we had THE perfect combination of vendors working with us! You guys were amazing, I guess it is best said by the comments of our guests many of which stated "best wedding they had ever been to", "most fun they had ever had at a wedding", "most special they had ever felt at someone else's wedding". We know we gave you guys a run for your money with lots of ideas and little additions and also...last minute changes but you guys took it all in stride and were true professionals! Ryan and I just want to redo the wedding (EXACTLY THE SAME WAY) over and over each weekend because we had SO much fun. Also, you should know that atleast half of our guests came up to us during our brunch the next morning to compliment us on such a wonderful wedding and fantastic DJ! There are not words that can say thank you enough. You helped make our day everything AND MORE then we could ever dreamed of! Thanks so much and we hope to see you around Bluffton sometime!!

Brian and Holly Lutz--they are awesome!! We have been talking with Brian for several months, so it was such a joy to see this wedding come together. What a whirlwind for this couple--they had to evacuate their home two weeks before their wedding because Gustav was on his way. They spent time with friends and family in Georgia, so some of the wedding stress was relieved. They then made their way to Hilton Head the week before the wedding. There was a great cast of professionals who really helped make this wedding so great. Maureen Cohen was the officiant and she was awesome. A Floral Affair provided incredible decor and flowers. Shelly Hutchinson and Brent Nelson were there to record the memories for Brian and Holly. And what can we say about the Westin they provided another amazing event! Again, we were so honored to be part of Brian and Holly's special day and we also enjoyed getting to know their families in the process. Holly's father was so kind and sent us a sweet email several days after the wedding:
Hi Liz and JamieJamie - I'm sorry I didn't get to see you at the end of the evening - everything was so hectic when the reception ended. I wanted to thank you for the great job you did during the reception. Everything for the wedding went better than we expected - and you were a huge part of that. The music was perfect as was all of your commentary (especially their story). I especially loved "Hang on Sloopy" to start and "Firecracker" to end the night. If you worked in our area (Ohio) - I would gladly recommend you to anyone needing a DJ.Thank you again for helping to make the night a huge success.Steve (and Jan)

We had a terrific day! The weather was perfect and we enjoyed every minute...what's better is...we remember all of it!! Jamie...you did such a fantastic job, we are so thankfully and grateful for all your hard work. I hope you had a great time, as well! Well, things here are busy as usual! We bought our first home before the wedding, and we close on it tomorrow. So, I have been changing addresses, changing my name and packing all week! We have already decided that we are going to spend our anniversary in HH next summer...so we would love to see you guys again! Liz, I had so much fun planning our reception with you and chatting on the phone and on-line! I'm really going to miss you! So, you guys both take care and keep in touch! Thanks again!!All the best, Jaclyn and Jose Sastre

Chris and Ashley are just really fun people and their reception held true to their personalities. They chose to have scripted introductions for their wedding party. Ashley, being the beautiful person that she is was kind to each of her attendants and shared great stories and memories of each. Chris being the guy that he is chose to put in just a little dig as each of his groomsman were introduced. Their love story was filled with touching, funny, informative details about how they became a couple and how their lives had progressed to their wedding day.

Julie and Matt Clark
What an awesome couple with a great wedding story. Over the months of planning we have gotten to know Matt and Julie very well. They have been to our house, been out on the boat with us and we have spent quality time just hanging out on several occasions. These are truly two special people.
Matt and Julie pulled out all the stops for their reception. We provided uplighting for the ball room at the Country Club of Hilton Head, we projected their monogram on the ceiling (shown above). Julie and Matt opted for almost every option and trick that we have available
- We provided entertainment for their Rehearsal/Meet and Greet Party
Ceremony setup for music and microphones
- Scripted Introductions
- Love Story
- Ambient Lighting - this was a surprise from Matt to Julie
- Choreographed first dance with a first dance song consisting of a mix of over 15 different songs - kind of like the "evolution of dance" on youtube.com- this was a surprise for everyone from Julie and Matt. They even tricked their wedding party into doing the "Thriller" dance with them.
- Special dedications to the members of our armed forces
- Voice-overs - Bon Jovi's "Thank You" with a special message from Julie to Matt carefully placed in the intro of the song - this was a surprise from Julie to Matt
- Photo Montage displayed at reception during dinner
- A video toast from the Matron of Honor who actually could not attend the wedding since she was due to have her baby the very next day
I promise you boredom was not a problem at this wedding. John Bracket provided the photography and was awesome to work with as usual. This was a great reception that you almost had to witness to believe. We went all out to give Julie and Matt exactly what they wanted.Jamie and Liz Bodie
