Madi and Christian’s Sun Valley Club wedding on February 23, 2019 was an exceptional winter celebration! Their ceremony and reception took place in one of the most beautiful locations in the state of Idaho… Sun Valley (Be sure to check out all of the images below!). From the romantic outdoor ceremony to the epic, all-ages dance party full of dance circles and tons of smiles, this wedding was top notch.
Madi & Christian chose to have their wedding ceremony outside on the patio of the Sun Valley Club. Despite the chilly temperatures everyone seemed to really enjoy the setting. It was romantic, serene and full of love. A stringed trio (including Madi’s own Mother!) played the Prelude, Processional and Recessional music. I provided wireless lapel microphones for the officiant and Christian which also picked up Madi’s voice.
(Note: Hiring a DJ with professional equipment for your ceremony is essential. The “clip-on” mics were hidden from view. The sound was loud and clear for all guests to hear. No distractions whatsoever.)
The rest of the evening took place inside the Sun Valley Club. The stringed trio moved into the main foyer to perform for the cocktail hour. When Madi & Christian were ready to be introduced, the amazing wedding planner and onsite coordinator (Kim Carley and Kat Stansberry), helped me direct everyone into the main hall for dinner, toasts and dancing.
The Grand Entrance was amazing. The guests roared as Madi & Christian entered the hall to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” by Stevie Wonder. Then the beautiful couple shared their First Dance to “Best Shot (Acoustic Version)” by Jimmie Allen. Some pretty special moments there.
After that, everyone enjoyed dinner, some heartfelt speeches then formalities like the Father-Daughter Dance and Mother-Son Dance. Once those were finished, we moved right into the epic dance party! Everyone celebrated and danced for more than 3 hours. It was incredible! This group was so much fun and I’m truly blessed to have been part of Madi & Christian’s big day in beautiful Sun Valley, Idaho.
