The best way, in my humble opinion, to begin the story of Lindsey and Doug is to give you a quote from Shakespeare (after all, he did pen the greatest love story of all time), "My love is deep; the more I give to thee, the more I have...".
Lindsey and Doug's wedding was a classic tale of a girl who loved a boy (and books) and a boy who loved her back. It was just so evident when we met Lindsey and Doug in person for the first time (we had a few Skype dates prior), how much they loved one another. We walked through their reception venue with them at the Moorestown Community House and chatted about how we could make her vision of books and flowers and love come to life in this English/Colonial mansion built in 1923. Yep, DONE!
Lindsey and I shared in our affinity for novels and our respect and admiration of the great Authors who penned the classics. I was super jazzed to help plan their literary tale.
I mean, is this anything but complete and utter love??

DJ or Band? Band or DJ? I could have gotten rich off of the proverbial dollar every time that question was asked. So which was it? For us it was DJ. We wanted our reception to be a party! Our guest were a majority young crowd and we knew it was going to be, for lack of a better description, a Gong Show! A band didn’t fit that image and didn’t fit our personalities. We didn’t and don’t have anything against bands, we just weren’t sure that a band would be able to play Lil’ Wayne the same way Lil’ Wayne could do it.
I wasn’t sure how to find a good DJ but I knew what I wanted and would find it when I saw it. Kristin and I went to a wedding expo, Bridal Event by Bouche Productions at The Crown Plaza in Cherry Hill, NJ. We walked in very underwhelmed and a little disappointed in the vendors that attended. As to not judge a book by it’s cover we walked around to each table and checked out what they were offering. Really though, Kristin just wanted to get her card signed by every table so she could enter the raffle portion of the experience. It worked out well for her, she WON! The one table that stood out were these DJ’s. Music was blasting and the whole time we were there a crowd was stationed around their table. We had to find out what all the commotion was about. We met Tom and Jon of Hi-Society Productions. Young, hip and very attentive; I fell in love! Three days later an email from Hi- Society Productions was in my inbox! Prompt too? More love! I hadn’t heard from any one else and with their customer service, didn’t need to. I emailed them back, set up a time and place to meet and we were on our way to securing a DJ. Taylor (my husband) and I met Tom and Jon in Northern Liberties in Philadelphia at Bar Ferdinand. After our first beer, and there were a few, we knew these were the guys we were looking for! They were friendly; interested in more than the business they could receive from us and willing and able to read our minds and see our vision. Taylor felt the love.
As months turned to weeks and weeks into days Tom and Jon’s customer service was the same it was day 3. They helped us along the way to finding the right music for each detail of our wedding. Reading between the lines of, “We were thinking of...You know, something like...Well, what do you think.” On the day of the wedding they rocked the house! Tom and Jon manned the turn tables while staying on top of the timeline for the night. They were the perfect maestro’s for our wedding!
