And We Danced DJ Entertainment was proud to provide the right songs and music for Jen Berkebile and Erik Schmalz’s spectacular wedding reception. Jen did not have a particular theme for the day, but she knew that poppies and ranunculus had to be the flowers of the day. She then chose colors that would work well with her choice of flowers. Jen wore a beautiful taupe dress, and her bridesmaids wore poppy colored dresses. The groom and groomsmen sported blue suits with poppy colored ties.

Jennifer Berkebile and Erik Schmalz met while in college at Duquesne University. They moved to the State College area to continue their education. Erik proposed to Jen in May, 2016. On June 2, 2018, Joe Jividen, friend and officiant, performed the wedding ceremony at the Rhoneymeade Arboretum and Sculpture Garden. Later, the party adjourned to the General Potter Farm to continue the celebration. And We Danced DJ Entertainment provided the music that had people dancing, singing and partying the night away. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was busy capturing the awesome fun and poses the guests were displaying that night.

Jen, Erik, family and friends were either on the dance floor or mugging for a picture behind the photo booth. Maria Crisafulli was the wonderful wedding photographer for the day. She was constantly buzzing around and snapping key photos of the guests and bridal couple. Full Circle Farms was the fantastic flower artists of the day for both the ceremony and reception. Instead of cake, the couple chose apple, cherry, blueberry, shoofly, chocolate shoofly, rhubard and strawberry rhubard pies as the dessert of the night. They were made by Dutch Valley Bakery. That Kitchen Witch was the caterer for the reception. Ellen and her staff were also busy bees keeping the bountiful buffet line moving and enjoyable.

Thank you Jen and Erik for allowing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your wedding celebration! It was very clear that day that Jen Berkebile and Erik Schmalz were meant to be!!!

 

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had an amazing time at the State College Days Inn on April 13th with Penn State’s Association of Women in Computing (AWC), the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), as they held their 2018 Semi-Formal with the theme, Under the Sea!  The professional groups decorated the room with inflatable sea creatures and mermaids. Balloon decorations were placed at each doorway symbolizing bubbles under the water. A bubble machine was churning a never ending supply of bubbles as the guests danced. And We Danced projected a stunning light show onto the dance floor.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment provided upbeat dinner music to enhance the dinner hour. A little after eight o’clock, the students were ready to have fun. Lights were turned down, and the students began getting up and moving to the music. While some guests left the dance floor to get some fun pictures with their friends and significant others at the photo booth provided by Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths, many began to sway and get down to the throbbing dance music. By the third song, the dance floor was packed with guests partying. Lights were flashing while bubbles were brewing as guests performed the Cupid Shuffle and Cha Cha Slide. The guests were having such a great time!

Penn State University has various professional engineering societies geared towards various engineering backgrounds. Each society meets on Penn State’s campus and can be found online with meeting times and locations. If you have interest in any of these groups, please look them up online!

When And We Danced DJ Entertainment announced that the semi-formal would be ending, the guests thanked us and said good-bye.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment can’t wait to party with these fine folks in 2019!

A couple met in line while waiting for their local Best Buy to open its doors on Black Friday. They got married the following year there!  Another couple met while working at Sam’s Club and decided to have their big day at Sam’s Club followed by a reception in their snack bar area. This might seem like a joke, but brides and grooms are choosing to host their wedding and reception at very nontraditional venues. And We Danced DJ Entertainment has had the opportunity to serve couples in many nontraditional settings, but we haven’t yet had the opportunity to provide sound, music, and lights at the local grocery store or tire service.

Many couples are deciding to ditch a normal setting for something that means more to the couple. Did you meet at a rock concert? Rent the venue for your wedding and reception. Meet at camp? Rent the camp for your big day. Many of these venues realize that a wedding is an important milestone in the life of a couple, and the couple will have a significant moment and memory in the nontraditional venue of their choice.  Nontraditional venues are excited to work with couples to help make their day special. 

Besides music and sound, why not add a special photo booth to the mix while marrying at your local food store!  All would enjoy a great gift of a picture with the bride and groom in the nontraditional setting. It would be an event that will not be forgotten and dearly remembered in years to come.

So, if you met at the local pizza shop and spent time going to the eatery together with touching moments together at the shop, why not rent the place and hold your wedding inside!  Pizza loving guests will sign your guest book while grabbing a slice of pizza and toasting your big day.  Call, text or email today with your wedding date and nontraditional venue, and And We Danced DJ Entertainment will gladly enhance your special day!

 

You Are Cordially Invited To Our Wedding – 3PM At Sam’s Club!

 

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had a marvelous time at the Nittany Lion Inn on December 2nd with Penn State’s Graduate and Professional Student Association as they held their annual Winter Gala.  And We Danced placed uplights around the room displaying the color blue to give a charming PSU feeling to the room. Later, the lights were synchronized to change color with the music.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment provided light background and holiday music during the dinner hour. At eight o’clock, the students were ready to have fun. Lights were turned down, and the students began getting up and moving to the music. While some guests left to get some fun pictures with their friends and significant others at the photo booth provided by Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths, many began to sway and get down to the thrilling dance music. By the third song, the dance floor was packed with guests partying. Lights were flashing while the guests performed the Cupid Shuffle, Wobble and Cha Cha Slide. The dance floor was so packed that guests were dancing on the carpeting next to the tables.

Two hours was not enough time for these students. When And We Danced announced that the gala would be ending, the guests began shouting for an encore! And We Danced quickly played a few more songs before saying goodbye to the graduate students.

The Penn State Graduate and Professional Student Association’s Winter Gala is one of our absolute favorite events of the year! We can’t wait to party with them in 2018. See you next year!

 

COOLEST.

PARTY.

EVER!

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the pleasure of emceeing and DJing Jesse and Nikki’s wedding reception at the Nittany Country Club on Saturday, October 7th.  Nikki chose the colors navy and peach as the theme for her wedding day.  Her bridesmaids, mother of the bride and mother of the groom wore navy blue dresses, while Nikki displayed elegance in her Brides of Today wedding gown.  Jesse and his groomsmen sported lovely grey suits with peach ties.

Photographer Sarina Bower of Bower Shots was quick to capture all the joy and happiness of the day.  Nikki’s mom, Donna, created the beautiful bouquets, boutonnières and corsages for the wedding party and family members.  Linda of the Nittany Country Club provided a delicious meal and awesome cookie tray for the guests.  And We Danced DJ Entertainment inspired the happy couple, family and friends to dance to their favorite tunes.  Guests had a hilarious time laughing, smiling and quickly posing with Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths BIG camera open photo booth.

Nikki and Jesse met at work, they bonded over their love for gaming and Pokemon Go and are now happily married.  Thank you for the wonderful time And We Danced DJ Entertainment experienced with all of your guests on that beautiful autumn day.  We wish the best of luck to you in the future.  Enjoy your honeymoon trip to the beautiful Pennsylvania Poconos!
