|Your special touches like the book for our guests to sign, along with your very warm and engaging personality set the tone for a wedding we will never forget. You really cared about what we wanted.|
– Lisa and Jason Shelton
These are some examples of special gifts we’ve created as a way of showing how much we care about you and your wedding.
Molly and Tim were HUGE Chicago Bears fans. For their gift, we learned and played “Bear Down Chicago Bears.” The couple and all the guests sang along with our 10-Piece Orchestra. I bought them an autographed NFL Bears football. All their guests signed the ball and we gave it to them at the end of the night! Tim sang “Go Cubs Go” he received a baseball signed by Hall of Fame Cubs pitcher Lee Smith. Go Cubs, Bears, Tim and Molly!
Laura and Brian’s Favorite movie is “UP”. We love this movie too! The idea was to create something really special for the bride and groom. There was an original high gloss 24″ x 36″ movie poster on Amazon. The poster was foam core mounted, all the guests were able to sign it! Our 10-Piece Orchestra also learned the theme song.To make it extra special, we taped a dozen brightly colored helium balloons to the back of the poster. After the wedding, all of the children were able to bring home a balloon. It was a fun surprise to create!
Sheila and Mike were Big Baseball Fans. Mike is actually an umpire for baseball. For the unique gift, we purchased three major league bases and had all their guests score on this surprise! 340 guests made sure each of these bases were covered with signatures from everybody. Mike’s umpire buddies really had some fun! It was a real Homerun!! Our band also learned and played 10 Irish Waltzes for this wedding!
Stephanie and Kevin both went to University of Dayton in Ohio. We contacted the University bookstore and spent about 20 minutes on the phone while going through the website looking for a unique gift which all their guests could sign. We found an autograph basketball and had it shipped via Fedex next day. To make it that much more exciting we also learned and played the University of Dayton fight song. Half the crowd knew the words! Stephanie, Kevin and all their guests were surprised and thrilled! GO FLYERS!
Beth and Eric were big fans of bowling so I went to three bowling alleys until I found one that would sell him two new bowling pins. To make the gift extra special, we had their guests sign the bowling pins. At the end of the night, Beth and Eric were given the pins as a one of a kind gift. To make it even more fun, we included the classic bowling movie, The Big Lebowski. This was right up their alley! This was REALLY fun to do. Their guests got a kick out of it too!
Tracey and Geoff were big time New York Yankees fans. We went to several antique stores in Chicago and finally found a great photo of Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig and N.Y.C’s Mayor LaGuardia. It was taken in 1938 at Wrigley Field when the Yankees were playing the Cubs. We spray mounted the photo on a HUGE sheet of black cardboard. All their guests signed it with a silver Sharpie. The band played “New York, New York”. It was one of those once in a lifetime photos. Tracey and Geoff were thrilled!
Sarah and P.J. had their first date at a restaurant in Roscoe Village called Piazza Bella. We went there during the week, spoke to a few managers and told them we needed their help in creating something special for the bride and groom. They agreed to our idea and gave us a menu as a special gift for them. The bride and groom were VERY surprised and thrilled! Sarah and P.J.had forgotten they even told me about where they had their first date . Since they also were huge Blackhawks fans, we bought them two white Blackhawks caps which their guests signed. Our band also played the theme song when I introduced them.
Shannon and Eric are giant Cubs fans. They go to games as much as possible with their family and friends. One of Shannon and Eric’s favorite other things to do is BBQ with their family and friends. For their special gift, we got them a custom Cubs Bean Bag toss game. All their guests at the wedding signed the boards. They said, “We are so excited to use it this summer.” What a great memory from their wedding!
Rachel and Aaron love the Cubs. Since their wedding was being held at the Chicago History Museum, we wanted to create something about the Cubs, but also historic. We searched through a few antique stores in the city and came across this photo of Babe Ruth up at bat in Wrigley Field in 1934. To make it interactive with their guests, we spray mounted the photo onto a large black poster board, then with a silver Sharpie marker, all their friends signed the historic poster. They were presented with their one-of-a-kind gift at the end of the night!
Mike and Katy LOVED Seinfeld. We wanted to create something really special since we are all Seinfeld fans too! After a few phone calls, we found a store in Hollywood where the studios drop off scripts once they’re done shooting. They had Katy and Mike’s favorite episode, “Non-Fat Yogurt”. They FedExed the script to us and we gave it to them as a gift at their wedding. Ya Da Ya Da…Our 10-Piece band learned and played the Seinfeld theme song. It was a fun surprise for Katy, Mike and the band!
