Happy Halloween from Music Lifeline DJ and Photo Booth!
I wanted to take a few minutes out of this spooky evening to talk about the fun of a Halloween themed wedding.
In the past we had the privilege of deejaying a wedding on Halloween. The bride and groom went all out, and dressed up as Morticia from the Addams Family and Dracula. The entire wedding party walked down the aisle as goblins and ghouls. One of the bridesmaids dressed up like Cousin Itt.
Lighting played a major role in the creepy decor. The altar was made up of an arch and a backdrop with our special string lighting. The entire room was decked out in uplights. There was special uplighting on each side of the room called a quad beam. It added a balance between spooky and elegance to the room. A layer of fog filled the room during the reception. It, paired with the dance lighting, completed the eerie look and feel.
The room was filled with pumpkins. This included the front hallway near the guest sign in book and the centerpieces. The pumpkins were complimented with fall leaves. The centerpieces also included Mason jars with willows and candles. To keep up with the Halloween theme, spiderwebs were everywhere (even on the arch). Spiders could be spotted on the webs, waiting for their next meal.
The ceremony was outside. The guests sat on bales of hay in true rustic, fall fashion. Normally I provide music for ceremonies. In this case, the bride and groom had friends of theirs play the guitar and sing. I did give them microphones and a PA system. The officiant performed a nice and simple ceremony. The pumpkins and leaves were also outside, along with old windows at the end of the aisle.
It was a bit chilly that day, but luckily the ceremony was not too far away from the reception indoors. To warm up the guests, chili and hot chocolate were served. The other food consisted of vegetable, cheese, and fruit trays.
The first dance was very nontraditional. The song was from Iron Maiden. It was a first for me, definitely not a waltz. The rest of the formalities were more traditional.
Once we opened the dance floor, the first person to jump out on the floor was a young boy with a lot of enthusiasm. He was dressed like a member of the Blues Brothers. The dance floor was packed all night long. They had a wonderful celebration. The music selection was a classic wedding base with a twist. That twist was heavy metal and alternative metal. This allowed us to balance the bride and groom’s personal taste with the guest’s general taste in music.
Weddings do not have to be traditional. They are a wonderful opportunity for brides and grooms to show off their unique personalities to family and friends. This is one example of a Halloween themed wedding that was enjoyed by all that were in attendance. We would be honored to help you plan yours.
