Styled Shoot - Backyard BBQ Inspiration

We love getting to work with wedding professionals on styled shoots, and giving curvy girls a spotlight to shine! This past month we had the pleasure of working with an awesome group of KC wedding pros on a “Backyard BBQ” styled shoot filled with fun touches of our hometown. This relaxed and fun photo sesh gave us all the feels, and we can’t wait to share!

Our Favorite Things - KC Wedding DJ's & Entertainment

LIFE OF THE PARTYYYYYY. That is what this post is all about! I can't tell you how many brides walk through our door saying yes, the ceremony is so important, but we just want to have a big party at the reception. And what better way to do that than booking the BEST of KC's DJ's, Bands, and Entertainment?!

Here are our top five favorite groups and individuals that will make your wedding reception one to remember. They will keep you on your feet all night, help move things along during the reception, and provide a fun atmosphere for all your guests. YOU ARE LITERALLY SILLY IF YOU DON'T HIRE ONE OF THEM. So, stop what you're doing, follow them on social media, and touch base about the services they provide. You will not regret it. Not. One Bit. 

Now, without further ado, enjoy!

1. Levity Events

Levity [leh-veh-dē] - Lightheartedness.

Weddings and events can be... and usually are very stressful for those hosting them. We add the fun and lighthearted vibe to your occasion to make it enjoyable.

Levity Weddings & Events started in 2008 as a single mobile DJ, playing for friends and family. Just a decade and stacks of awards and accolades later, we're one of the highest reviewed DJ companies in the Kansas City market and have grown to offer many professionally trained DJs and MCs, amazingly talented photographers/videographers, super fun photo booths, an insanely organized coordinator and a hella handsome wedding officiant. (We may be a bit biased.)

Diversity, transparency, simplicity and good ole’ fashioned humor are just a few of our core values, which resonate in everything we do. Schedule a meeting with us in our downtown KC showroom to experience the Levity difference.

2. DJ Alex Reed

I was born and raised in Kansas growing up in Shawnee, where I graduated high school and went to Pittsburg State University for my undergraduate degree. Music has always been a passion of mine growing up playing different instruments and listening to a variety of genres. I began DJing in the summer of 2010 because I was tired of listening to the same music at parties, weddings and bars. I have a vast knowledge of music and an eye for the crowd, so I decided to put my skills to work.

After college, I moved back to Kansas City where I worked a 9 to 5 job while DJing on the side. I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my craft and quickly realized that the time I was putting into my business was equal to that of a full-time job. Wanting to dedicate my time and attention to delivering memorable experiences to my clients, I quit my day job and began DJing full time in the Spring of 2014. Above all, I am passionate in building relationships with the people I encounter and work with on a daily basis.

Listen to what the beginning of your reception or event may sound like!

3. Icon Event Group

WE DO WEDDINGS

Welcome to the Wedding Division of Icon Event Group. While we have grown as a company to do full scale audio and video production, corporate events and everything in between, weddings is still about 70% of what we do. Wedding Entertainment is not only our profession but our PASSION. Don't settle for the 'norm' when it comes to entertaining your friends and families on your special day.

Through our many years of experience we have found that the best way to entertain is to combine a proper balance of both emceeing and skilled DJing. Microphone use is important, but it must be used correctly. Over and improper use will disengage the audience and is often times referred to as “cheesey”. A great DJ will know and use this balance to engage the audience and build energy throughout the night.

Our Icon Elite DJ's know how to mix music. They will be able to mix harmonically and beat match music to create seamless transitions between songs and different genres. Icon DJ's also know how to read an audience which allows us to play the appropriate song for that special moment. 

True professionals are always progressing which is why we are constantly perfecting our craft through our extensive and ongoing training. Our mission statement at Icon Event Group Weddings is to create lifelong memories from your celebration. Come visit with us today and see how we do what we do!
