– 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.
Brad and Claire met at about the most unromantic place you can think of, baggage claim at O'Hare Airport. This was such a great story we wanted to come up with something that would remind them of the unique way they met. For their special gift, we gave them a gold carry on suitcase. After their guests signed it I said "now when you go on your next trip, all your family and friends will be coming with you!"
Michael and Julie love to go jogging together. On one their early morning jogs Michael had something else in mind other than in just getting in shape. During the first break along the lake front. He got down on one knee and proposed to Julie. Who enthusiastically said, "YES!". Their jog became a sprint home to tell all their family and friends. For their special gift, we order size 22 white sneakers which all their guests signed. Gives new meaning to "Runaway Bride".
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!
Larry and Rebecca love to BBQ. Larry even created his own BBQ sauce. For their gift, we bought them a fully functional BBQ grill. The guests had so much fun with it. They signed it with such clever sayings such as "Love is Rare", "Boy and Grill in love!". This was the biggest gift we've ever given. Hope they get to use it this summer with fond memories of their wedding!
Michael and Deanne love to do lots of things together, but one of their favorite things is something most people see as just ordinary. They love going grocery shopping. So David went to Jewel and bought a box of Heart to Heart cold cereal. All their guests signed the box. It was one of most unique gifts we've even given. Sometime love can make the ordinary seems extraordinary when you share it with someone you love!
Lauren and Eric love drinking wine, going out with their friends, watching their favorite TV shows,and Golfing and Skiing. For their wedding in St. Charles, IL, we created an exact copy of the Monopoly Card for St. Charles Place. He changed the info on the card to include all their favorite things they do together. We had it printed on a 5’ X 5’ Poster board. All their guests signed the poster and at the end of the night we gave it to the Bride and Groom as a gift. Everyone really enjoyed it. Lauren and Eric were thrilled and amazed that we made that kind of effort for them. This was one of our favorite gifts we’ve created!
Nora and Brian both have very different types of jobs. Nora owns a fabulous shoe store in Naperville. Brian is a talented carpenter. We wanted to create something that combined their two jobs into something special. So we ordered wooden shoes from Holland Michigan. To really personalize it we had their name and wedding date engraved on the size of the shoes. The guests all signed the shoes which made it extra fun!
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!
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!
William K. Kellogg III is the grandson of the founder of Kellogg’s. Our band was honored to play for his 80th birthday party. We wanted to create something special for him. We found an antique shop that had magazine ads from the 30s and 40s for Kellogg’s Cornflakes. We took the ads to a framing shop and had them spray mount the ads onto black cardboard. To make it extra special, we brought a silver Sharpie so all his guests could sign the ads and give it to him as a gift. Mr. Kellogg was delighted. He shared with us many wonderful stories about his incredible grandfather! It was a “Special K” night for everyone!
