We hired Rhythm of the Night Entertainment for our wedding way back in 2020. We were one of those 2020 weddings that got pushed and pushed but finally made it happen in 2022. Sara at Rythm of the Night made the process easy and seamless to move...
the date multiple times because of covid. Sara is very communicative via email and phone, which was really refreshing for planning purposes.
From the planning stage to the day of coordination, to the actual music itself, I was very impressed with Rythm of the Night Entertainment. Sara and her team were super easy to work with and generally a pleasure. Most importantly they really captured the mood and music I wanted from cocktail hour, and dinner, to the dancing portion of the evening. Very highly recommend them for your next wedding or other events.
In terms of event planning, they had a portal where you could upload a must-have list of 20 songs, a timeline of the event, and any specific song choices for things like cutting the cake, first/last dance, etc. Sara and her team had a phone call with us the week before the event to discuss the details. I also sent her a list of songs, artists, albums, and some YouTube mixes as further examples of the vibe we wanted at the wedding. She was fully onboard with all the suggestions and reference points.
The day of the wedding was great. We had a portable photo booth where they could walk around and have people take pictures of themselves that then printed to an onsite printer (people could print as many copies as they want). It was an app on an iPad and allowed virtual props to be added onto people and several backgrounds. It also had a stationary stand so people could take pictures at the designated photo booth area, which is what was done for the majority of the night. They also had a photo book where they printed an extra copy of everyone's pictures and added it to the book and let people write something under the photo. It is a really special keepsake of the night.
Day of coordination:
Their team was on top of it all. They had one staff member working the photo booth, one DJ, and one person making announcements and what seemed like coordination. It was all very seamless. For example, I said a few words before dinner was served to welcome people once hors d'oeuvres were done. They had a microphone waiting for me at my dinner table seat and said it was all ready to go. They also worked very well and seamlessly with my wedding planner and venue staff.
They nailed my request for cocktail hour and dinner music. I asked for music that sounded like the DJ group Odesza (chill electronic music). I sent some examples of Odesza, other similar artists, and YouTube playlists and it was exactly the chill vibe I wanted. One of the venue staff even complimented me on the cocktail/dinner music and said "this is exactly my vibe."
After dinner dancing:
I was going for very classic wedding music with things like Shout, Respect, lots of 80's jams, and all the best from the 90's. I asked them to mix in a few current artists like Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Ariana Grande as well. They nailed what I was looking for and it was all the hits and great wedding music. Everyone was dancing the whole night.
