The Henderson Wedding in Destin FL With DJ Brian B

A throwback to this Henderson Wedding in Destin FL from this past Fall (the professional images recently came in). This was my (Brian B) 2nd wedding of 3 this particular weekend so I was definitely in my wedding groove. To be honest, when the bride-to-be called us inquiring on our services, she was wanting a band but felt for the space, a DJ was a better fit. I could hear the disappointment in her voice but I told her not to worry. I would make sure it was all good from the music side. The Henderson in Destin, FL provided the perfect backdrop for a fantastic celebration of love. It wasn’t quite October yet so the humidity was still pretty intense. But you know you have a great crowd when everything is done outside and they partied anyway. That was the case with Kindra and Jason’s Henderson Wedding in Destin FL.

Venue: The Henderson, Destin, FL
Wedding Planner: Sherri Kuhn, Destin To Wed
Baker: The Cake Destination
Designer/Florist: Bella Flora 30A
Headliner DJ/MC: DJ Brian B
Officiant: Casey Goben (family friend)
Photography/Videography: Michael K Photography

The ceremony was held on the Western Lawn and it was a stunning setting with the backdrop of the Henderson Park Inn on one side and the gulf on the other.

They moved to the Eastern Lawn for cocktail hours where we brought out all of our Lawn Games. They were a total hit!

Guests were then transitioned to the Grand Lawn for the rest of the evening.

Reception Formality Music

  • First Dance: “Feet Don’t Touch The Ground” by Stony Larue
  • Father/Daughter Dance: “Forever Young” by Rod Stewart
  • Mother/Son Dance: “The Baby” by Blake Shelton

Kindra and Jason gave me total autonomy with the dinner music. When I get that type of leeway, it’s game on to see who how quickly I can get them on to the dance floor. Let’s just say it was hard to tell where dinner began and when we transitioned to open dancing. We had a pretty packed floor the entire night.

Thanks for allowing me to share such a special celebration with you Kindra and Jason!

Destin Wedding Private Showcase Proves To Be A Success

Towards the end of last year, we began working on a new line of thinking for the Florida panhandle and Destin wedding market as it applies to our marketing approach. The standard way to market your company outside of traditional advertising mediums was via bridal shows. We used to do them and saw some success but over the last few years, the attendance had dwindled and even more than that, the bookings nose-dived. It became more of a social event that lent itself to competing via price. Because we are more concerned with value than price, it was a battle we decided not to engage in and have pulled out of them all-together.

So outside of doing a sneak-peak at a wedding we are performing at, how can a client see us LIVE? After all, that’s where you can see if a company can deliver the goods rather than some photo shopped image or well-edited video. In the Northeast, private showcases have caught traction and are starting to become THE thing to provide that outlet. We were an ideal candidate for this as we’re an all-inclusive event company. We offer DJs, Emcees, Live Musicians, Officiants, Photo Booths, PA Rentals, Ceremony Rentals, Dance Floor Rentals, Production Lighting, Day of Coordination, and most recently photography and videography. The only things we don’t do are florals, catering and reception rentals. So even if they had their entertainment handled, they could get the other services they needed and vice versa in a one-stop shop approach.

Destin Bridal Show

We spent November and December rehearsing and refining the presentation part of our showcase. We came up with a way to highlight all of our services but also give potential clients a 20 minute reception feel with each of our 10 local headlining MCs getting an opportunity to get on the microphone and entertain.

In getting the word out, we brought in 20 potential clients on a Saturday morning. With a strong venue partner in the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort, who not only allowed us to use their space, but handled the phenomenal food and mimosas, the stage was set for something new and fresh to be unveiled at no cost to these wedding clients. The “proof is in the pudding” as they say. 14 clients were able to book at least one service they needed and were home by the early afternoon.
