Carly and Matt--photobooth! Beautiful Beaufort Wedding

Parris Island Traditions was the setting of Carly and Matt's wedding and reception. There was not a single element that was eliminated from this wedding. Carly wanted a fun reception with a beach theme. Our photo booth definitely added the fun! We also had a really cool beach background for each photo that printed. It was a pleasure to work with John Wollwerth--a true photographer!

Stephanie and Nick--Hilton Head wedding at Hilton Resort (Shorehouse)

Oh how we love Stephanie and Nick! They are a beautiful couple and we were thrilled to serve them! JLKevents was in full force for Stephanie and Nick--ceremony setup on the beach, cool Asian lanterns, photo booth and of course, incredible DJ/MC services for their reception. The Shorehouse at the Hilton Resort provided great service--Alison Ward and her staff were awesome! Mark Staff photographed the afternoon and evening and there is no doubt that Stephanie and Nick will have incredible images to share with family and friends for years to come!!! The night ended with lots of hugs and kisses for everyone--even for us!! It was a great night!

Allison and John--Hilton Head wedding at Crowne Plaza

Allison and John's reception was like a rock concert!! Allison and John and their crowd were ready for a party--and that is what they got! They had a beautiful ceremony on the beach in front of the Crowne Plaza and then cocktails and dinner in the beautiful Pavilion. Kristen Quillen and the staff at Crowne Plaza did a great job of serving everyone. When the formalities were complete...oh wow! The crowd went wild. They were so much fun! JLKevents also provided a dramatic Asian Lantern look in the pavilion and The Gaupers documented the event. Allison and John's wedding was a true celebration!! We were thrilled to be part of it!

Lighting at Port Royal

We had the honor of working for Melissa Sloan's wedding Saturday. Melissa wanted a Low Country Wedding with a lot of fun! She selected Port Royal Club as her venue. Jen Leiti and the entire staff were incredible! Melissa wanted to add a little bit of lighting on the back porch, so we strung cafe lights and Asian lanterns. There was a fire in the fireplace and rocking chairs and the bar--all together. I think it made for a relaxing spot! Many thanks to Gregg Flory for the images that he captured. He's always a pleasure!

Holly and Fred Hedemark

We were so honored to be part of Holly and Fred's wedding day! We have known Fred's parents for about 8 years and we think their entire family is just fabulous!! We also had the honor of entertaining at Fred's sisters wedding last February!

Holly and Fred's personalities really were evident through the entire event! They both love music and had specific selections from the pre-ceremony music to the last dance of the reception. They even arranged for a surprise serenade of Fred's parents (Marianne and Fred, Senior) to honor them for 40 years of marriage--which they celebrated on Sunday.

The beautiful Honey Horn pavilion was the site of the reception and it was "rustically elegant!" It was truly breath-taking! Downtown Catering served delicious Low Country Cuisine!

We look forward to keeping up with Holly and Fred through the years!

Palmetto Bluff and Caroline Carter

Palmetto Bluff and Caroline Carter--two great names in the wedding business!! Caroline contacted us several months ago about creating a magical and fun after-party in the cellar at the Inn at Palmetto Bluff. We were thrilled to take our lighting gear there and of course, to work with Caroline again. The bride and groom, Shedrick and Brandi were going to be completely surprised with our design--really cool, but a little scary too!! I think we were successful because according to Caroline, "Brandi walked in to the cellar last night and literally started screaming, jumping up and down, hugging me, and telling me it was the most amazing surprise. It was really the happiest I had seen her all weekend!"
