Customization is key! Don’t do what you don’t want to! Play the music YOU want to hear. We create a sound experience based on you. It could include a song from the first concert a couple attended together, the first dance song for members of the wedding party, and other songs that express you and your loved ones. Standard party songs should only be played if they mean something to you. - AMP’D Entertainment
Personalized ceremonies, having loved ones share readings from special books or poems help to keep the personal touch throughout the whole day. - Emily Jordan Events

Go all out with whatever has meaning to you as a couple to make it special for your guests. -A Lethal Rhythm
Add on a virtual element to a regular photo booth to include loved ones not present. Live streaming is also huge. -Shutterbooth
