I’m The Man! Jacob’s Bar Mitzvah at The Maplewood Country Club

 

IMG_6221What a perfect song for Jacob’s highlight reelHe’s got the looks, the charm, the moves… and an incredible group of family and friends to surround him.   It was an honor and a pleasure to serve the Halperin family for Jacob’s once-in-a-lifetime celebration at the Maplewood Country Country Club!

People ask me all the time for venue recommendations and I always say the same thing… We are spoiled here in New Jersey with some of the finest country clubs, hotels and distinctive locations to choose from… What makes a venue truly desirable and the main reason why I recommend a select few,  is because of the catering director or general manager.  This is the person who you will probably be working with the most during the planning process.  You need someone like Weisser Millien from the Maplewood Country Club.   Someone who;

Marcello Pedalino, MMP Entertainment, Maplewood Country Club1) has the kind of event planning experience that will save you time and money

2) can refer you to the best products and services in the industry

3) will respond promptly to your questions and concerns

4) understands how important timing and pacing are .. and  someone who

5) has a relaxed demeanor which will help you keep your stress levels in check both before and after the event.

Thank you to Weisser and the Maplewood Team for your hospitality and professionalism.  We look forward to teaming up again soon for yet another Signature Collaboration.
And, as you’ll hear Jacob’s dad mention in the testimonial at the end of the clip, kudos and congrats to marquee mixologist- Dj Jason Jani and our Celebrate Life Team for being such an “amazing crew” to work with.  Great things happen when creative partnerships and exclusive collaborations happen. Synergy is a beautiful thing.  🙂

“The Night Was Amazing” – Frank & Tina’s Wedding Reception at Perona Farms

Mother Nature definitely smiled down on Frank and Tina this past summer at Perona Farms in Sussex County NJ.  After nearly 10 straight days of rain, and only 5 minutes before their ceremony was about to begin, the skies finally cleared up and the sun came out just in time for their nuptials!

We quickly re-set up our equipment outside and helped dry off all of the chairs.  It was on!!     Frank and Tina wanted to have The Best Wedding Reception…Ever!  And now, thanks to some good karma that they totally earned for being such awesome people…. the reception of their dreams was taking place right before their eyes!

As you’ll see in the extended highlight reel and live video clips, Frank and Tina’s family and friends helped to make this an unforgettable day.  They brought a ton of  positive energy to the occasion and made sure that their dancing shoes were ready for the dance floor from start to finish!

A few times each year, we have clients that want to take their once-in-a-lifetime celebration to the next level.  They know that the entertainment and event production are key components.  Frank and Tina wanted a their reception to be a Signature Level Event Collaboration

With the help of my good friend, creative partner and one of the country’s premier mixologists, Jason Jani, it was a pleasure to make that happen!

Congratulations and best wishes to Frank and Tina!

“One of the Best Nights of My Life.” – Brooke’s Bat Mitzvah at 201 Club

We love to make our clients happy.

So when Brooke’s mom, Andrea, said that we helped her have one of the best nights of her life, we were totally feelin’ the warm fuzzies.

The Leon family took over the trendy 201 Club and turned it into Club Brooke for the day.

The authentic lounge atmosphere, low lighting and intimate layout that is sometimes hard to replicate at a country club or hotel- really helped to engage Brooke’s family and friends.  All that AND, one of the country’s most in-demand and marquee mixoligists- DJ Jason Jani, was working his magic as he joined The Celebrate Life Team for yet another Signature collaboration.

As you can see from the highlight reel, with the right entertainment and event production planning, you can easily make it feel like a Saturday night at the hottest club in town- even when it’s only 4:30 in the afternoon.  🙂  Kudos to Andrea for making her vision a reality.

Jordan dances with his younger sister, Brooke, at 201 Club.  Marcello Pedalino, MMP EntertainmentIn addition to the interactive cocktail hour party and all the dancing during the reception, one of the many highlights took place when we played a slow song.  When it was time for all the guests to find a partner, Brooke’s brother, Jordan, didn’t hesitate for a second when he made his way over to his “little” sister and said “I’ll dance with you!”   It was a heart-warming moment that exemplified the strong bond that the Leon family shares.

Mazel Tov Brooke!  We wish you and your family all of the health and happiness that life has to offer!

The Celebrate Life Series presents: How to Make an Entrance at Your Wedding Reception with Jason Jani

 

The Celebrate Life Series continues with a segment on how to make the beginning of your Wedding Reception more fun, unique and memorable for both you and your guests.

This episode features my good friend and industry rock star from the SCE Event Group, Jason Jani.

Over the past few years, Jason has not only transformed his body with a lifestyle intervention, he has transformed the private events scene across the country by doing some really cool things for some really cool people.
Whether it’s the use of technology, lighting and special fx or blazing a hard-to-replicate trail of fiery mixology; Jason’s way of doing business and performing has attracted a lot of respect and appreciation.

His clients are big fans too.   Especially Kate and Brian.

Kate and Brian knew that how a wedding reception starts is a good indication of how it will end.  So, they hired SCE and the ultra-talented cinematographer Gregg Lassik, from Endless Wave Studios, to make sure that their guests would experience the Best Wedding Reception Ever from start to finish.   An ordinary bridal party introduction might be alright for some couples, but Kate and Brian wanted to start off their celebration with style.  So, they enlisted the expertise of the Jersey Shore dynamic duo and created a brilliant introduction video that showed off their wicked-awesome sense of humor and uber-fun mojo.  

Check out this clip to see how it all came together and the final product.

Best wishes to Kate and Brian!
