Wilderness Ridge Wedding | Erin + Hayden

Wilderness Ridge Wedding

Can we just say we LOVE winter weddings? Erin + Hayden had a stunningly beautiful Wilderness Ridge wedding and we love how The Leekers Photography captured their special day.

The ceremony was inside the ballroom, with perfectly placed chiavari chairs facing the fireplace creating a eye popping backdrop. Blooms & Bouquets nails the design aspect as usual, blowing us away with the style and decor of the entire room.

Even though there was minimal snow that day, The Leekers rocked the outdoor photo session and captured the details perfectly. We love Erin’s details and glittered KEDs sneakers!

After the ceremony, the guests were escorted upstairs for cocktail hour, sharing drinks and stories and appetizers. The ballroom was flipped for the reception, creating a warm atmosphere for the evenings events.

Our DJ Scott was there to rock the dance floor and keep the party going all night long. Check out the images from their amazing day!

Ceremony Music Ideas | Wedding Instrumentals

Ceremony Music Ideas

One of the biggest struggles of planning a wedding that some couples find is having to pick all the music that is played throughout the day, including the wedding ceremony music. Being DJs, we are always asked what our favorites are when a couple is simply tired of decision making. We keep an ongoing database of some of our favorites and we decided to share these ceremony music ideas with you!

Instrumentals or covers of popular songs are one way to inject your personality in your wedding day. These ceremony music ideas are instrumental/acoustic songs that can be used during your ceremony or for background music during dinner. Covers can be done on a piano, violin/strings, or even an acoustic guitar. An example is this violin cover of Bruno Mars “Marry Me” found on YouTube:

We also have a few other favorites, including this violin cover by the same artist of Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud”:

He has others that would work perfectly for any ceremony..

Check out a few other artists like The Piano Guys, Vitamin String Quartet, and Boyce Avenue.

You can also choose to hire a string quartet to play your music during the ceremony or for cocktail hour if you would prefer live music over a DJ playing tracks. Most string quartets already have covers worked into their overall playlist to make it easy for you and the song selection process.

Hopefully this helps make your music decision easier as you plan the details of the best day ever!

A Sound Impression Review – Brides Say It Best!

A Sound Impression Review

[My experience was] Amazing. Couldn’t have asked for a better DJ. Followed my guidelines very well. Both the love story video and DJ made the whole reception everything I could’ve asked for. I highly recommend Kurtis as your DJ. He made the night so much fun and made sure to make announcements as the night went on for each important event taking place. I was very pleased and it was excellent!

A Sound Impression Review

We first met Cody + Angie when they booked us for a Love Story video, to share their story with their guests. They have been dating since college and have such a cute story together. Cody played college baseball and Angie now owns her own nutritional/fitness company, Eleat Nutrition. You can see their slideshow video in another post!

Cody + Angie had a stunning winter wedding – And I truly mean that! Angie’s sister is a talented wedding planner that we love working with. Shelly owns Event Design, based in Lincoln but works all over Nebraska. We found out she was handling the small details and we couldn’t be more thrilled to work with such a professional.

She brought in an amazing team of vendors, starting with one of our favorites: Matt Elwood with Elwood Photography to do the photography. He truly captured the essence of their day, down the snowy photo to show the wintriness of the day.

The reception was at the beautiful Cornhusker Hotel in downtown Lincoln. We loved the silver sparkles, the uplighting, the contrasting white. Their tiered square cake was simple yet stunning. Our DJ from A Sound Impression rocked the dance floor all night long – Everything about the day was gorgeous!

Nathan + Samantha | Bluestem Tree Farm Wedding

Outdoor ceremonies are one of my favorite things about weddings, and this one was no different. Nathan and Samantha were an eccentric couple – their excitement for their big day was contagious and the love they had for each other was electric. The day was stunning and we couldn’t have asked for a better couple to share it with.

The Bluestem Tree Farm is a stunning venue, where everything is in one location for a smooth transition between events. It has an outdoor ceremony space, a vineyard, a reception building with the option of outdoor seating, and a house/patio/fire pit for those brides who would like to stay on site the night before.

Michael + Carissa | Omaha Love Story

Michael and Carissa came to us wanting a Love Story video to capture their unique story to have forever, and also to share with their wedding guests. We were moved by the fate that brought them together, as well as the emotion that was a huge part of their tale. Everything from excitement, to laughter, to tears – this love story video has it all. Grab some kleenex, you’ll need it for this one!

Father Daughter Song | Dustin Lynch – Your Daddy’s Boots

New music Tuesdays has always been a favorite of ours — So many decisions involved in planning a fabulous wedding, so by the time it comes to picking reception music, our brides are typically on decision overload. We are always on the lookout for brand new songs that would fit a wedding day perfectly.. and today we got lucky! Dustin Lynch just released a new song that would be the perfect fit for your Father Daughter dance. Watch out.. If you are a Daddy’s girl, this one might just make you tear up…

Girl you look so pretty in your wedding day white
Dancing with another man but that’s alright
The way he’s spinning you around has stopped the whole room
I’m gonna have a hell of a time trying to fill your daddy’s boots

He’s got a heart of gold, right hand like a vice
Same man on Sunday morning as Saturday night
Barbed wire tough and cowboy cool
I’m gonna have a hell of a time trying to fill your daddy’s boots

He was the first to hold your hand, first to dry your tears
We had a man to man and now I’m taking it from here
I made him a promise, girl I promise you
I’ll always do the best that I can do
I’m gonna have a hell of a time trying to fill your daddy’s boots

They say there’s things about him that you see in me
He’s the kind of man I want to be
Got to give the man credit where credit is due
I’m gonna have a hell of a time trying to fill your daddy’s boots

He was the first to hold your hand, first to dry your tears
We had a man to man and now I’m taking it from here
I made him a promise, girl I promise you
I’ll always do the best that I can do
I’m gonna have a hell of a time trying to fill your daddy’s boots

This one nearly left us speechless, until we saw feathers dipped in glitter — and then we couldn’t shut up about it. GORGEOUS! Everything about their wedding day was perfect, down to the amazing weather, beautiful couple, and an amazing team of vendors who rocked the entire wedding day. It was our first time shooting in the Omar Building, but our favorite thing about the venue was how it was such a blank canvas. The industrial feel was very clean and sleek, with the opportunity to bring in absolutely any color scheme or decor and have it work very well. The windows gave just the right amount of natural lighting, and the food was to DIE FOR! We also give major props to the Lovestu.ck Events team, as well as the Blooms and Bouquets staff for creating this fabulous reception set up. This ended up being a Same Day Edit that we surprised their guests with at the reception!

Brett + Savanna | Lincoln Wedding Videography

The wind wasn’t letting up, and as the storm clouds rolled in, we all had to make the best of the situation. Brett and Savanna were troopers, and their gorgeous wedding, full of DIY details went flawlessly. They were married near the pond at the Prairie Creek Inn, with a reception to follow in the upstairs of the barn. It was a small, intimate ceremony with their close family and friends while they planned to follow it up the next day with a larger reception where the played the video below. Being able to share their special ceremony with all the guests who weren’t able to attend was priceless! The talented Paula Moser Photography was side by side with us, capturing every little detail and moment.

Drew + Paige | Nebraska Wedding Videography

I don’t even know where to begin with this gorgeous wedding day. Drew + Paige have been together for years, and had the perfect outdoor wedding planned in the backyard of the house her grandparents built, that Drew and Paige now reside in. Mother nature, however, had different plans. Their May 4 wedding day temperature hovered around 40*, with rain and winds for most of the day, making the outdoor wedding, even with a tent, nearly impossible. They didn’t let it get to them though – Paige called and reserved a church in town last minute, and the wedding was just as beautiful as ever.

A few awesome vendors made this wedding rock..
