Hosting an Engagement Party? Here's Why You Should Hire a DJ

So you just got engaged. Before you and your fiance get into serious wedding planning mode, you decide you want to throw an engagement party to celebrate the happy news with your closest friends and family.

Although engagement parties are usually more low-key and informal than the wedding itself, there's still a lot of planning that goes into it. Depending on your budget, you may be thinking about what to do for entertainment to ensure your guests have a great time.

Hurricane Productions offers DJ and MC entertainment services for all special occasions, including engagement parties. If you're about to start planning yours, here are a few good reasons to consider booking a DJ for an engagement party.

Your guests will enjoy live entertainment.

If you're hosting your engagement party at a private venue or banquet hall, you'll probably want some background music while your guests enjoy brunch, lunch, or dinner with you. Sure, you can make a Spotify playlist and hook up a speaker, but a DJ will be able to take requests and mix in real time, creating a unique experience for your guests. DJs are also generally more affordable than live musicians or bands, which are popular alternatives for engagement party entertainment.

It's a good chance to give your wedding DJ a test run.

Entertainment can make or break a wedding, and there's no better way to see how your DJ and MC interact with a crowd than watching them in action. By hiring the same DJ company for your engagement party and your wedding, you can give your DJ a "test run" for your wedding reception to confirm your decision and make sure they're a good fit for your guests.

You might be able to save money.

If you haven't already booked your wedding DJ, consider hiring Hurricane Productions for both your engagement party and your wedding day. We love bundling services for our clients, and for a limited time, we're offering a discount to clients who book entertainment for multiple wedding events.

Thinking about a photo booth for your engagement party? We can help you save money there, too: When you book an entertainment package, you'll receive a discounted rate on our attended open-air or enclosed photo booths. A photo booth is a great way to keep your guests entertained when they're not on the dance floor -- plus, they'll have a fun souvenir of your engagement party to take home!

Make an Entrance to Remember With Custom Projection Mapping

The "grand entrance" is a highlight of any special event.

The DJ plays a song, often chosen by the guest of honor, while the emcee announces that person's arrival into the room. This moment serves as the official kickoff to a reception, so it's important to make it as memorable as possible.

At Olivia's Bat Mitzvah, the birthday girl certainly made an entrance her guests will never forget.

Hurricane Productions' Strato Doumanis designed and programmed a projection mapping display to run as Olivia entered the ballroom at The Addison Park in Aberdeen, NJ. The projection mapping was fully customized to work with the layout of the room, and synced up with the song "Olivia" by One Direction. In this video, you can see Olivia's custom Bat Mitzvah entrance in action:

Your event possibilities are endless with projection mapping.

Projection mapping combines cutting-edge software with digital animation skills to turn any physical space into a dazzling canvas. For a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, Quinceañera, or Sweet 16, this technology allows for a completely customized experience with details that are unique to your celebration.

A projection mapping display can incorporate words, colors, icons, images, and music that are special to your guest of honor. The result is a stunning visual and audio experience that will captivate your guests and keep them talking long after the event ends.

The Hurricane Productions team is no stranger to projection mapping. Our sister brand MediaCutlet has worked on several corporate and university projects that leverage this technology, including a curved wall display for an Audi dealership, a staircase display for a Rutgers University athletic awards banquet, and a 60-foot playable Pac-Man game projected onto the wall of a library.

We are always excited for opportunities to bring our projection mapping skills to our clients' private events. If you want to make your grand entrance something truly special with a custom projection mapping display, contact us today to discuss your vision.

Hurricane Productions also offers all-inclusive media and entertainment packages for any special occasion. Visit our pricing page or request a quote for more details. 

Gorgeous Winter Wedding Venues in New Jersey

Spring and summer may be the most popular seasons for weddings, but some couples prefer a winter wonderland for their big day. Whether or not there's snow on the ground, celebrations held during the colder months can be just as beautiful as any other time of year. Winter weddings in New Jersey can be particularly gorgeous, especially when there's sparkling frost, evergreen trees, and warm lights in the background.

If you're getting married in or near New Jersey next winter, these local venues can provide the perfect setting for your wedding photos and videography.

The Graycliff

The Graycliff in Moonachie, NJ is an sophisticated venue with tons of photo opportunities. Here you'll find a stunning outdoor gazebo with sculptures and decorative wrought iron roof, a stone waterfall wall, and lush gardens. In addition to several well-decorated bars and ballrooms, The Graycliff also offers a bright, airy greenhouse with atrium-style windows. No matter where in this venue you hold your ceremony and reception, you're sure to get a picture-perfect backdrop.

Real Wedding: Samantha and Michael


James Ward Mansion

Known to some as the "best kept secret" in Union County, James Ward Mansion is the very essence of class and elegance. It has spectacular 24-foot ceilings, fireplaces, spiral staircases, and gold-gilded architectural detail, and its sky-lit garden atrium room includes a working fountain. For more wedding photo and video opportunities, step outside the mansion and take a walk around the charming town of Westfield.

Real Wedding: Brianna and Dan


Martell's Waters Edge

The Jersey Shore may not be your first thought for a winter wedding, but Martell's Waters Edge offers a breathtaking view of Barnegat Bay all year round. Located in Berkeley Township, this waterfront venue has a private garden for ceremonies and a pier for outdoor photos. In the Main Dining Room, you and your guests will enjoy panoramic views of the bay. Waters Edge only hosts one wedding at a time, so you'll be sure to get personalized attention and service on your big day.

Real Wedding: Alexa and Armando


Waterloo Village

One of the most popular wedding venues for all seasons (it's on our fall venue list, too), it's easy to see why so many New Jersey couples choose Waterloo Village. Located within Allamuchy Mountain State Park in Stanhope, NJ, this centuries-old canal town offers countless scenic views, including the Musconetcong River, an outdoor pavilion, and impressive historical buildings. The natural beauty of Waterloo Village is only enhanced by a fresh blanket of winter snow.

Real Wedding: Allison and Richard


The Arts Ballroom (Philadelphia)

Just a stone's throw from Southern New Jersey is the City of Brotherly Love. The Arts Ballroom is nestled in the heart of Philadelphia's Avenue of the Arts District, giving couples the opportunity to explore the city for their wedding day photo and video shoots. Inside the venue is more than 10,000 square feet of customizable space that can accommodate up to 550 guests. The Arts Ballroom's granite staircase, Grand Ballroom, mirrored Sylvania Room, lounge, and mezzanine are all excellent backdrops for your wedding day memories.

Real Wedding: Erica and Michael

Erica and Michael - The Arts Ballroom, Philadelphia

We love working weddings in our home state of New Jersey, but because of our location, we're also able to serve couples in surrounding cities like Manhattan and Philly. One of those couples is Erica and Michael Willey, who held their winter wedding at The Arts Ballroom in Philadelphia's Avenue of the Arts District.

The Willeys hired two full-day photographers from Hurricane Productions to capture their wedding events. Corynn Egrezcsky and Dave Constantini documented every special moment, from pre-ceremony preparations with their wedding party (which included our own Nick Nittoli!), to the final dance of the evening.

The Arts Ballroom itself offered plenty of gorgeous backdrops for portraits. Erica and Michael were able to take advantage of the 10,000 square-foot venue's signature granite staircase and elegant mezzanine, which overlooks the entire space.

The couple also coordinated with Corynn and Dave to plan a photoshoot around Philadelphia. The newlyweds were able to get daytime and evening photos throughout the city, making for a very special and unique set of wedding photos.

Alexa and Armando - Martell's Waters Edge

New Jersey couples who want a romantic beach wedding often choose to get married at the Jersey Shore. Alexa and Armando Pellot were no exception. They held their wedding at Martell's Waters Edge, a gorgeous waterfront wedding venue in Berkeley Township, NJ. Located on Barnegat Bay, Waters Edge provided a beautiful backdrop for the couple's day.

Alexa and Armando hired Hurricane Productions for their wedding entertainment, photography, and videography. The couple chose our Spotlight Package, which included entertainment by DJ Strato Doumanis and MC Robbie Padovano, as well as lighting design by Nick Nittoli. As an add-on service, Hurricane provided a wireless sound system for the ceremony.

 

Photographer Corynn Egreczky spent the entire day with the Pellots, capturing every special moment from their wedding party preparations through the reception. Videographer Markus Robinson also provided six hours of ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception coverage. Alexa and Armando received a feature-length, 60 to 90-minute cinematic wedding film as part of our Full-Feature Videography Package.

Why You Should Book Your Wedding DJ and Videographer As a Team

After you and your fiance choose your wedding date and venue, your next step is to start booking your other vendors. At the top of the list for many couples are selecting a DJ, a photographer, and a videographer -- and sometimes, this means dealing with up to three different companies.

At Hurricane Productions, you can book your DJ and MC, videographer, photographer, lighting designer, ceremony sound, and more, all under one roof. While you can certainly hire us for individual wedding day services, we highly recommend combining your entertainment and videography packages.

Why pairing up your wedding DJ and videographer makes sense

It might seem like your wedding DJ and videographer won't have much interaction throughout your day. The entertainment team operates from behind the DJ booth, while the videographer moves around capturing the most important moments of your wedding events. However, booking these two services together offers a huge advantage, both to you and your vendors.

They already know each other.

It takes a lot of different people and moving parts to make a wedding happen. All your vendors have to talk to each other to coordinate the day from set up to break down, and miscommunications can sometimes throw a wrench in the process. Hurricane Productions staff members know each other and are already comfortable working together. Chances are your entertainment team and media team have already done a wedding or two together, so they know how to communicate and make an event run smoothly and efficiently. Each side can plan ahead and stagger their breaks, so neither your DJ nor your videographer misses a single important moment of your wedding.

They both have access to the same wedding timeline.

Your entire Hurricane event team has access to the wedding timeline you create in our online planning portal. This means that, when the big day arrives, your wedding DJ and videographer will both be working from the exact same schedule. This becomes incredibly important if any last-minute changes to your timeline occur. Imagine if your DJ was about to start the music for your grand reception entrance, but didn't realize your video shoot outside the venue was running behind. Your Hurricane videographer can send a quick text to the DJ and MC to ensure they wait until everyone is ready and in place.

Your wedding video will have crystal-clear audio.

Poor quality audio can really detract from a beautifully shot, cinematic wedding video. That's why, whenever possible, we have our videographers plug into our DJ setup to record the microphone feed and music. Your wedding film will not only only look great, but it will have crisp, clear audio straight from the source. No need to worry about the videographer's camera mic cutting out parts of your vows or your best man's toast!

You'll save money by bundling services.

We understand that hosting a wedding is an enormous investment. That's why we offer a discount to couples who book multiple wedding day services through Hurricane Productions. The money you save by bundling your DJ and video packages can go toward another part of your wedding day budget, or give you a financial boost as you begin your life as newlyweds.

Allison and Richard - Waterloo Village

Allison and Richard Zemsky were married at Waterloo Village in Stanhope, New Jersey. This charming historical village is one of our favorite spots for fall weddings because of its natural beauty, gorgeous stone buildings, and other picture-perfect backdrops.

The Zemskys hired Hurricane Productions for full-day videography services. The couple originally booked our package that included one videographer and one assistant, but later upgraded to include Cinematic Angles in their final video.

Corynn Egreczky and Tyler Ajamian filmed all of the Zemskys' wedding events, from pre-ceremony preparations to the end of the reception. Having two dedicated videographers allowed Allison and Richard's day to be captured from each of their perspectives. This provider a greater variety of shots to choose from when our team created the 60 to 90-minute formal edit and the 3 to 5-minute highlight video for the couple.

Hurricane Productions provides a full suite of wedding day services, including entertainment, photography, and videography. Visit our pricing page or request a quote for more details. 

Brianna and Dan - James Ward Mansion

Brianna and Dan Hengst were married at the elegant James Ward Mansion in Westfield, New Jersey. Referred to as Union County's "best kept secret," this magnificent venue boasts 24-foot ceilings, spiral staircases, and fireplaces, along with a sky-lit garden atrium room. These gorgeous features provided a romantic atmosphere and the perfect backdrop for the couple's big day.

Battello Is Back! Check Out Our Favorite Jersey City Wedding Venue

Since it first opened in 2014, Battello has been one of Jersey City's most popular restaurants and event venues. Its convenient location, top-notch cuisine, and unparalleled views of the New York City skyline made it a go-to destination for couples seeking a scenic New Jersey wedding spot with an urban vibe.

Like many of those familiar with this Jersey City wedding venue, we were devastated when Battello abruptly shut down in September 2017 to make safety-related structural repairs. Hurricane Productions has worked several Battello weddings in the past, and we loved the unique, industrial atmosphere and incredible event staff.

A few weeks ago, we heard the news all Battello fans were waiting for: The venue has officially reopened its doors. According to its website, regular dinner service is now available, with lunch and brunch service resuming in mid-February. That means the first new-and-improved Battello wedding isn't far behind.

If you're among the many recently engaged couples who are planning a 2019 or 2020 New Jersey wedding, you may want to consider Battello as a venue option. Known for its nightlife and live entertainment, this waterfront establishment is easy to access from both New Jersey and Manhattan. It offers several unique spaces to host your special day, whether you want a small, intimate dinner reception or a cocktail-style party with hundreds of guests. Whatever you're looking for in a wedding venue, Battello is likely to offer it.

We wish Battello's owners and events team all the best as they make their grand re-entrance into the New Jersey wedding scene!

Yes, You Need to Plan Out Your Wedding Timeline

When you hire a wedding vendor, one of the first things they'll ask you about is your wedding timeline. A clear, detailed sequence of events allows everyone involved in your big day to understand exactly where they need to be and when.

But your wedding timeline involves more than just the start and end times for your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. You need to break down every step of your day -- from wedding party preparations to your final dance -- to keep everyone moving and on track. While your photographer, videographer, MC, and venue staff can help with this, you and your fiance need to work out a plan for each of these vendors to follow.

What does a wedding timeline look like?

Your wedding timeline is a list of specific time blocks set aside for each event throughout your day. The more detailed your timeline is, the more likely you are to stay on track.

Below is an example of a wedding timeline. Not every couple's timeline will look like this, as many modern brides and grooms choose to omit or reorder certain "traditions" during their reception. However, this list should give you an idea of what the average wedding day looks like:

  • 1:00 pm: Photographer and videographer arrive to capture wedding party preparations.
  • 3:00 pm: First look
  • 3:30 pm: Wedding party and family portraits
  • 4:30 pm: Couple portraits
  • 4:45 pm: Guests seated for ceremony
  • 5:00 pm: Ceremony
  • 5:30 pm: Ceremony ends / cocktail hour begins. Additional photo and video shots with couple.
  • 6:30 pm Cocktail hour ends / guests seated in reception room
  • 6:40 pm: Wedding party introductions
  • 6:50 pm: Newlywed grand entrance and introduction
  • 7:00 pm: Couple and parent dances
  • 7:15 pm: Toasts
  • 7:30 pm: Dinner served
  • 8:30 pm: Cake cut and served
  • 9:00 pm: Open dance floor
  • 11:00 pm: Final dance/couple's grand exit

A well-planned timeline is very important for keeping your vendors on schedule, but the biggest benefit is eliminating a huge source of stress for you on your wedding day. Your vendors are professionals, and with your plan in hand, they'll be able to facilitate seamless transitions from one event to the next, while you two enjoy your celebration.

Can our vendors help us with our wedding timeline?

Yes! When you book Hurricane Productions for your wedding, you'll have access to our easy-to-use online planning portal, which allows you to customize your wedding timeline exactly the way you want it. This will ensure that your Hurricane DJ, MC, photographer, and/or videographer all have access to the exact same information and can coordinate with each other ahead of time.

If you're struggling to plan your timeline and need some guidance, our full-time staff members are available to help you every step of the way. Our general manager, Chelsea, assists every single Hurricane client in their planning process, and can give you some insights on how other couples have structured their wedding day. You can also speak directly with your media and entertainment team to get their thoughts and come up with a plan that works well for everyone.

Your vendors can also help you with any day-of changes to your wedding timeline that may arise. Let's say you decide that morning that you really want to get a certain photo or video shot that you didn't plan for. You can discuss it with your media team to see where else during the day you can fit that shoot in. Similarly, if you realize right before the reception that you'd rather scrap the planned bouquet and garter toss, just let your MC and DJ know and they'll add a few extra tracks to the playlist.

Do we need to include every traditional wedding element in our timeline?

Your wedding timeline is your own. There's no rule saying you need to have a first look (although we highly recommend it!), nor do you need parent dances, a formal cake-cutting ceremony, or anything that doesn't feel like "you."

Your family, friends, and vendors can certainly make suggestions, but ultimately, it's up to you to decide what you do and don't want to include in your wedding day events. Just be sure that whatever you do want to happen, gets a spot on your final wedding timeline.

Cannabis Wedding Trends to Incorporate Into Your NJ Wedding

Cannabis has been a hotly debated issue in recent years, and as more states vote to legalize recreational use, it's no surprise that so-called "weed weddings" are becoming hugely popular across the nation.

As of January 2019, more than half of the United States allows for medicinal marijuana use, and recreational use is fully legal in 10 states plus the District of Columbia. More states – including New Jersey – are expected to follow suit this year, so it's highly possible that some 2019 and 2020 weddings in the Garden State could incorporate cannabis.

In legal-use states, the annual Cannabis Wedding Expo has set the bar for industry vendors that want to help weed-friendly couples celebrate their big day. As more of the country says yes to recreational marijuana, here are a few cannabis wedding trends you're likely to see in the near future.

Cannabis Wedding Trends NJ Couples Can Jump On Now

Give a nod to cannabis on your big day with these subtle incorporations.

Cannabis Plant Bouquets and Décor

One of the easiest (and least controversial) ways to incorporate cannabis into your wedding is in your bridal bouquet, floral arrangements, and other décor. Get some fresh cuts of cannabis plant to add to your greenery for a bright, natural look. You can even add some cannabis leaves to your wedding cake to tie the theme together.

Wedding Party Gifts and Guest Favors

While you can't get high at your New Jersey wedding reception just yet, you can show your love of cannabis through your favors. Personalized pipes, match boxes, and even small packages of rolling paper are all thoughtful gifts for your cannabis-consuming guests. As an alternative, you might consider gifts that contain the non-intoxicating compound CBD, which can be found in cannabis lotions, oils, and edibles. CBD-infused products provide all the benefits of cannabis (including muscle relaxation and reduced anxiety) without the potent high you'll get from products containing THC.

Hemp Attire and Cannabis Leaf Accessories

For the cannabis-consuming couple who's looking for a much more understated approach, your best bet may be attire made of hemp (think dresses, ties, and anklets) or adding cannabis leaves to your wedding day accessories.

Trends for Future New Jersey Weddings

These next few trends might have to wait until New Jersey legalizes recreational cannabis use, but are good to keep in mind if your wedding happens post-legalization.

Infused Edibles

Cannabis-infused olive oil and butter are becoming more popular in the edibles market. If you're having your wedding reception catered by a third-party vendor, consider asking for an "infused" food station of dishes cooked or garnished with cannabis, such as flatbreads, pasta, and soup.

Cannabis Cocktails

Alcohol is already a staple at most wedding receptions, so why not add a little cannabis to the bar selection? Cannabis-infused mixers like tinctures, syrups, and creamers can make it the star of your signature wedding drink.

Open Cannabis Bars

Having an outdoor wedding reception? Consider hiring a "budtender" to serve 21+ guests a selection of gourmet cannabis strains, including low-dose edibles. Like a regular bartender, your budtender will be a knowledgeable professional who can help you and your guests achieve a safe, responsible high. If you or your guests are sensitive to THC, you can also consider strains that contain more CBD.

Dedicated Cannabis Consumption Areas

While some venues allow for cannabis use throughout the establishment, couples that can't find a cannabis-friendly location can set up a dedicated area near the reception for guests who want to discreetly consume or smoke during the wedding. Limos or party buses are also a viable option for this purpose.

Empower Your Teen to Plan Her Sweet 16 with Hurricane Productions

For many girls, there's no birthday party more special or memorable than her Sweet 16 or Quinceañera. It's a day dedicated entirely to her, with family and friends gathered to celebrate the young woman she's become.

Of course, before the big day, there's the lengthy and sometimes stressful Sweet 16 planning process. Because her parents are booking -- and paying for -- the event, the birthday girl may feel like she doesn't have as much say as she'd like in her celebration.

At the same time, planning a Sweet 16 or Quinceañera for your daughter can be overwhelming. Not only are there countless details to address, but you also have to make sure a crowd of teenagers and older family members will both have a great time.

When you book Hurricane Productions for your daughter's event, we empower her to plan her own party. She has her own vision of her birthday celebration and she knows what kind of entertainment she and her friends will enjoy. Here are just a few things we do to make it easy for you to delegate the Sweet 16 planning process to the guest of honor:

She can get insights from someone who's been through it.

It's important that your teen talks through her musical tastes and vision with her Sweet 16 DJ and MC. However, the DJ entertainment industry tends to skew male -- and while we love our guys, your daughter probably wants a fellow female perspective. Our General Manager, Chelsea Rutkowski, personally communicates with every client throughout their planning process. The birthday girl can reach out to Chelsea if she has any specific questions or just wants a second opinion about some details of her party.

She has a direct contact to her DJ and MC.

Chelsea facilitates direct connection between your daughter and her DJ and MC for her Sweet 16. At some DJ companies, you have an initial consultation with the manager, sign a contract, and don't talk with the actual DJ or MC until you finalize the playlist. We believe in having your birthday girl meet the team who will be working the DJ booth at her party.

Whether you book Robbie, Alvin, Nate, or one of our other talented entertainers, you and your teen will have a chance to speak with her DJ and MC to get a sense of their personalities and musical styles. Entertainment can make or break a party, so this direct communication helps ensure your team is a good fit for the crowd at your daughter's Sweet 16 or Quinceañera.

She can use our online planning portal to customize her day.

Our clients love how easy it is to use our online planning portal. Your teen can log in and select the musical genres she wants played at her party, set her "must play" and "do not play" lists, and designate special songs for her Father-Daughter dance and/or candle ceremony. Meanwhile, you can use the portal to manage your contract and payments in just a few clicks.

Let Hurricane Productions help you and your teenager through the Sweet 16 planning process. Check out our all-inclusive entertainment, photography, and videography packages for Sweet 16s and Quinceañeras, or contact us directly for a quote.

Hurricane promotes Markus Robinson to Media Director



Hurricane Productions announces the promotion of Markus Robinson to Media Director.

He assumes the lead role for video and photo projects related to Rutgers University, non-profit partners, and private events. He will co-manage media staffing and logistics with General Manager, Chelsea Rutkowski.

He will also continue to assist with corporate video for MediaCutlet (A content creation and consulting company owned by Hurricane's co-founders Strato Doumanis and Vincent Velasquez).

"I'm most excited for growth in the company, continuing relationships and also creating new ones," Robinson said.

Robinson graduated Rutgers in 2016 with a degree in Visual Arts and Digital Filmmaking.

As a student, he was a member of the University's Media Team and produced videos for all platforms.

Robinson first learned about Hurricane Productions as a student. Hurricane's former GM, Julia Crimi (Assistant Director, Major Events and Programs - Rutgers University) mentioned Hurricane's video capabilities to Robinson. At the time, Crimi was working on an initiative for Rutgers Against Hunger during the school's summer orientation program. Robinson filmed and edited a video recap of the program.

Later that year, one of Robinson's directors at the Media Team - Larry McAllister II - sent him an application for an open position at Hurricane.

Shortly after college, Robinson joined Hurricane's team at as a freelancer and increased his portfolio while working with MediaCutlet's former Media Director, Austin King (Commercial Video Editor at Raycom Media).

His promotion as Hurricane's Media Director marks his first full-time job opportunity.

"Markus elevated himself to this position with a rare combination of talent and work ethic," Velasquez said. "I'm thankful that our former employees and our partners at Rutgers recognized his potential and helped him transition from a student to a professional. Joining us full-time energizes our entire staff."

Wedding Trends: Cannabis, Brunches, Minimalism and More

Someone tagged you in this post because you're engaged and planning a 2019-2020 wedding. It's time to get to work : Set a date, pick a venue, book vendors, find your dress, etc.

Hurricane Productions helps hundreds of tri-state area couples celebrate their big day with DJ, Photo, and Video services. Our full-time staff recently compiled this list of wedding trends.

Cannabis

If you're reading this in New Jersey, New York, or Pennsylvania: Cannabis isn't legal, yet. But its coming. And couples are drawing from cannabis wedding ideas in states where it is legal and anticipating that they can incorporate it in all aspects of their wedding day including decor, favors and dessert.

Engagement Brunches

Many couples host an engagement party to kick off their wedding activities well before the big day. If you’re not already planning a daytime wedding, consider celebrating your engagement with a late-morning fête featuring breakfast foods, endless mimosas, and a DJ. Your friends are sure to have a great time -- after all, millennials are known for their love of brunch!

Daytime Weddings

Evening receptions are still the standard, but more and more couples are opting for afternoon weddings. There are a few good reasons to consider a daytime reception. First, many venues offer incentives for off-peak events, like a discounted per-head rate or no minimum guest count. It also may be more convenient for your guests to head home in the early evening, rather than 11 p.m. or midnight. The biggest advantage? You'll be able to take advantage of more daylight hours for gorgeous, well-lit wedding photos and videos.

Sunday Weddings

While not necessarily a new trend, Sunday weddings are becoming more common as well. As with daytime events, hosting your wedding on a Sunday is considered an off-peak time for most venues, so you'll likely save some money on the reception. If you do opt for a Sunday wedding, set the time early enough so your guests aren't still in "recovery mode" come Monday morning!

Unique Locations

Forget the traditional banquet hall: Today's couples want a wedding venue that reflect their unique personalities and aesthetic. Wineries, barns, and historical villages are all on the list of locations today's NJ couples are considering for their celebrations. You can check out a few of these gorgeous NJ wedding backdrops we've captured if you need some inspiration.

Natural Greenery and Foliage

Floral arrangements make an appearance at just about every wedding, but many couples are opting for a more natural, outdoorsy feel in their wedding decor by incorporating lush greenery, tree branches, and grasses. According to Martha Stewart Weddings, pampas grass and wheat will be included in more wedding florals this year.

Minimalist Aesthetic

The price tag on a wedding can skyrocket quickly, so couples are saving their budget for the important stuff (e.g. the venue and vendors) and going minimal on their wedding details.  WeddingWire says the "bold, minimalist look" can be seen everywhere -- invitations, florals, table settings, cakes, and even wedding dresses. Many wedding experts say modern brides have been inspired by Meghan Markle's simple but sophisticated Givenchy Royal Wedding gown, leading them to embrace minimalist attire for their big day.

Fully Customized Lighting

LED Lighting was the "it" feature for the early part of the decade. But couples are customizing lighting for more than decor purposes. Ever try taking a photo on your phone at night? It's not so easy.  Lighting can enhance photo and video - not just the moments captured by professionals. Everyone has Instagram (yes, even Grandma). And lighting can make guests' DIY photos from their phones look better, too.  Hurricane Productions has always been ahead of the curve on this trend -- we offer tons of custom-designed lighting add-ons for your big day, including full venue uplighting and Name in Lights monogram displays.

Do I Need a DJ and MC at My Wedding?

When people look back on the weddings they've been to, the one element that usually stands out in their mind is the entertainment. The entertainment company you hire can make or break your reception. If you want your guests to remember how much fun they had at your wedding, you need the right event host and musical talent.

While some couples still opt for a live wedding band, many choose DJ entertainment to save on cost and venue space. DJ companies will often give you the option of hiring one person as a combination DJ and master of ceremonies (MC), or one DJ and one MC. If you're on the fence, we highly recommend having a separate wedding DJ and MC.

Why hire a two-person wedding entertainment team?

Much like having two videographers, a two-person entertainment team will only enhance your wedding day. Each entertainer brings their own style and flair, but can collaborate together to produce an engaging, unforgettable experience for your guests.

Just ask any couple who's hired our main wedding entertainment team, DJ Alvin Gay and MC Robbie "Maserobbiee" Padovano. The combination of Robbie's larger-than-life personality with Alvin's energy and musical flow keeps guests out on the dance floor and having a great time throughout your entire reception.

"Over the years, Alvin and I have built a flow were we are able to create memories and moments that will last a lifetime," says Robbie. "From Alvin bringing the energy from behind the decks, to me not only entertaining guests, but coordinating the timeline to keep the overall flow of the event on track, we are the perfect team."

Having a wedding DJ and MC allows each to focus on their strengths.

At Hurricane Productions, all of our entertainers are comfortable behind a microphone and can seamlessly transition between DJ and MC. However, a combination DJ/MC shoulders a lot of responsibility in keeping your event flowing. They'll need to step away from the DJ booth to make announcements and speak to you and your guests, meaning they may need to line up a few tracks to auto-play while they handle MC duties. With a separate MC at the helm, the DJ can focus on taking requests, mixing tracks, and crafting a musical flow that's truly in-the-moment and unique to your event.

By the same token, a separate MC is free to get out on the dance floor, interact directly with guests, and make sure everyone is having a phenomenal time. You won't have to worry about whether your friends and family are enjoying themselves; you'll be able to see it in the way your MC handles the crowd.

What should I ask my potential wedding entertainers?

As with any other wedding vendor, you'll want to sit down and chat with your potential entertainment team before signing a contract. Ask good questions to determine if this particular DJ and MC are the right fit for your wedding – what is their planning process like? Do they understand your wedding details and timeline? How willing are they to work with you on customized playlists and music edits? Do they also provide a ceremony sound system?

Through these types of conversations, you'll get a better idea of your DJ and MC's personalities and styles, as well as how they'll interact with each other during your reception. After all, you need to feel comfortable with the people who will help create your wedding memories.

Hurricane Productions offers a full suite of wedding entertainment services, including DJ/MC entertainment, custom lighting design, ceremony sound, and more. Visit our pricing page to view our all-inclusive packages, or request a quote to create your own.

The Gorgeous Garden State: Beautiful New Jersey Wedding Backdrops

When it comes to natural landscapes and scenery, it doesn't get much more diverse than New Jersey. We've got it all – beaches, mountains, forests, farmland, historical villages, urban skylines, and more.

But our home state is not a paid actor; we've photographed and filmed hundreds of New Jersey weddings and events over the years, we can confidently say that couples couldn't ask for a more beautiful place to get married.

No matter what type of aesthetic you're looking for, we guarantee you'll find it right here in NJ. Here are just a few examples of gorgeous New Jersey weddings to inspire your vision for your big day.

NJ Beach and Waterfront Weddings

For most of us in the tri-state area, no summer would be complete without a trip to the Jersey Shore. This is a place where so many families create happy memories, so it's no surprise that NJ couples flock to one of our dozens of beaches to get married. Venues like Crystal Point Yacht Club, Clarks Landing, and Jack Baker's Lobster Shanty offer fantastic waterfront views for romantic ceremonies and amazing photographs.

Real Wedding: Joe & Jamie, Clarks Landing

NJ Mountain View Weddings

If the ocean isn't your thing, New Jersey has plenty of picturesque mountains, too. Whether you're a ski fanatic or just love the majestic beauty of a mountain range, venues like Mountain Creek Resort, Neshanic Valley Golf Course, and Crystal Springs Resort will give you the view you're looking for.

Real Wedding: Melissa & Frank, Mountain Creek Resort

NJ Golf Course and Country Club Weddings

Many couples love the idea of an elegant, sophisticated wedding held at a country club. Luckily, New Jersey has tons of exquisitely landscaped golf courses with clubhouses for private events. If this is the look you're going for, you'll love venues like Battleground Country Club, Blue Heron Pines Golf Club, and Eagle Oaks Golf and Country Club.

Real Wedding: Gabriella & Mike, Blue Heron Pines Golf Club

NJ Farmhouse Barn Weddings

They don't call us the Garden State for nothing. New Jersey boasts acres and acres of farmland, and along with it, we've got spacious farmhouses and barns that are perfect for wedding photos. Try a venue like The Hamilton Manor, Perona Farms, or Bear Brook Valley for that rustic, country aesthetic.

Real Wedding: Christine & Tim, The Hamilton Manor

NJ Weddings at Historical Sites

If you want to be surrounded by a bit of American history on your big day, choose a venue like Waterloo Village, The Shadowbrook at Shrewsbury, or The Olde Mill Inn. New Jersey has a rich past, from its Native American roots, to the Revolutionary War, to the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. Many historical venues in NJ date back to the 18th and 19th centuries, and offer a perfect blend of old world charm and modern amenities.

Real Wedding: Jessica & Matthew, Waterloo Village

NJ Weddings with the New York City Skyline

There's nothing quite like looking at the twinkling lights of a city skyline – and what skyline is more iconic than Manhattan's? When you get married at a venue like Liberty House, Maritime Parc, or The Water Witch Club, you and your guests will be able to enjoy breathtaking views of the city that never sleeps.

Real Wedding: Kimberley & Eric, Maritime Parc

Laura and Matthew - Liberty House

Jersey City's Liberty House is known for its breathtaking views of the New York City skyline.

Whether you're in the garden, on the patio, or looking out from the floor-to-ceiling windows, you'll always see the bright, beautiful lights of Manhattan. This sophisticated restaurant and event venue was the perfect location for Laura and Matthew Chervenak's fall wedding.

The couple selected Hurricane Productions' Cinematic Angles Package, which includes two full-day videographers, a formal 60 to 90-minute cinematic edit, and a three to five-minute highlight video. Videographers Corynn Egreczky and Tyler Ajamian captured all of the events. Pre-ceremony preparations began at Liberty State Park  and ended at The Liberty House with a cocktail hour and reception.  Following their first look, the ceremony took place at Seton Hall University's Immaculate Conception Chapel in West Orange, NJ. Hiring two videographers allowed both of the newlyweds to get equal attention and footage for their final wedding film.

In addition to of their videography services, the Chervenak's added a photo booth for their guests to enjoy throughout the reception.

What Music Do You Need for Your Wedding Ceremony?

When you think about wedding ceremony music, you probably think of pipe organs or string quartets playing Richard Wagner's "Bridal Chorus" (better known as "Here Comes the Bride") and Felix Mendelssohn's "Wedding March." While these two compositions are certainly traditional, they are far from the only options you have for your own ceremony soundtrack.

While some religious weddings require certain song or hymn selections, many couples are able to customize the music that plays during their ceremony. This is more than just the processional and recessional songs, though – there are several other opportunities for you and your fiance to choose background music that enhances the overall ambiance of your ceremony.

Whether you're hiring live musicians or having your reception DJ provide sound for all your wedding events, here are a few key points during the ceremony where you will want to plan out your music:

1. Prelude

Prelude music usually plays for 20 to 30 minutes before the ceremony begins while guests gather and take their seats. A set of seven to 10 light, romantic songs will set the mood for the ceremony and your overall wedding day.

2. Processional

This is the music that plays while honored family members (e.g. grandparents and parents of the couple) and the wedding party walk down the aisle. The processional song signifies the official beginning of the ceremony, so there should be a tonal shift from the prelude music. You may even wish to choose two songs to distinguish your family members' entrance from the wedding party.

3. Bride's Entrance

Aside from "the kiss," the bride's entrance is easily the most anticipated moment of many wedding ceremonies. Guests typically stand up and turn around to see the bride as she walks down the aisle. While you can use one processional song for family, wedding party, and bridal entrances, most couples have a pause before the bride enters to switch to a more dramatic piece of music.

4. Interludes/Special Ceremony Events

If your wedding includes special traditions like a unity candle ceremony, you may want to choose a subdued, emotional song to play while this is happening. Some couples also choose to have a friend or family member perform a musical interlude during the ceremony.

5. Recessional

Your recessional should be a joyous, upbeat song that celebrates the start of your life as a married couple. You and your spouse will exit the ceremony during the recessional song, followed by your bridal party and family members.

6. Postlude

Depending on when your cocktail hour begins, your guests may not leave the ceremony site right away. You may want to select a song or two to play in the background as they mingle and chat. Like the recessional, postlude songs should be cheerful and celebratory.

Other Wedding Ceremony Sound Considerations

Once you've chosen the songs for your ceremony, you'll need to think about sound amplification. A good audio system is essential if you want your guests to be able to hear your music, your officiant, and your vows.

Check with your wedding vendors to see what kind of sound setup they have, especially if you're having an outdoor ceremony. Weddings held at locations like beaches, lakefronts, and gardens may look beautiful, but it can be difficult to find a power supply for microphones and speakers. One potential solution to this problem is a wireless ceremony sound system, which we provide with each of our wedding entertainment packages.

When you hire Hurricane Productions as your wedding entertainment, we'll work with you to plan out the timing for each musical moment of your ceremony. If you're having live music, our high-quality sound system ensures that every musician and speaker at your ceremony is heard loud and clear.

The Truth About Raw Footage in Wedding Videography

Many modern wedding videographers, including Hurricane Productions, offer couples their raw footage as part of their video package.

There are a lot of questions and misconceptions about what raw video footage is and what you can do with it. Whether you've already booked your videography services or are just exploring your options, learn more about this line item and understand what you'll actually be getting from your wedding videographer.

What is raw footage and what do I get from my videographer?

The most common misconception about raw footage is that it's one, long, continuous video of your wedding events, from start to finish. In reality, your raw footage is a collection of all the video files your videographer took throughout the day. Because a new file is created every time the camera stops and starts, each clip is short, usually lasting from a few seconds to a few minutes.

While the files you receive should be in chronological order, you may find some clips that are out of sequence if the videographer had to switch memory cards or if you had a second videographer shooting your wedding. Additionally, the file names will come directly from the camera. So instead of seeing something like, "Ceremony Clip 1" for the first clip from your ceremony, the file names might be, "DCIM_0001."

We deliver our raw footage to every video client, directly from the camera, through our secure cloud server. We can walk you through your clips or sequencing if you have questions, such as which series of files came from which videographer.

Do I need my raw footage?

With a Hurricane Productions video package, your raw footage is already included in the purchase price. However, you may be wondering if you really need that footage if we're already creating a formal edit of your wedding day.

Keep in mind that there are often six to 12 hours worth of raw footage from any given wedding, and feature-length cinematic edits are just 60 to 90 minutes long. When we're editing your video, we'll choose the highlights and best shots of the day, but most of the footage will not make the final cut.

Even if you only watch through your raw footage files once, you'll be able to see every single second that was captured during your wedding. There may be little moments you had forgotten about, like a quiet, private conversation with your new spouse after the ceremony – or things you didn't even see happening, like a hilarious clip of your aunt tearing up the dance floor. Having your raw footage means you'll always have access to these moments.

What can I do with raw footage?

The great thing about raw footage is that it can be arranged in countless different ways to tell the same story from different perspectives. If you're handy with video editing software, there's no limit to what you can do with your raw footage. You and your spouse can each create videos of your favorite individual moments from the wedding. You can make a funny video of outtakes and silly moments from the reception to share with your friends. You can even piece the clips together in chronological order to create your own documentary-style video to accompany the professional cinematic edit you'll receive.

Can I have my raw footage professionally edited if I didn't buy an edit package up front?

Most of our couples choose to purchase a video package that includes editing up front. Others, like Jessica & Joe and Lisa & Jaime, hire us to simply film and deliver raw footage – but after the wedding, they realize they'd like a professional edit. In other cases, a couple may initially opt for our Short Movie Package, which includes a three to five-minute highlight video, and later decide they want a feature-length cinematic edit.

Regardless of what you hired us to do, it's never too late to add editing services if you have your raw footage. We are always happy to accommodate post-event requests for editing services, even if it's months later.

In addition to wedding videography, Hurricane Productions offers photography and entertainment services. Interested in one of our all-inclusive wedding packages? Check out our pricing page or request a quote for your big day.

Should I Hire One or Two Wedding Videographers?

If you and your fiancé have decided to invest in wedding videography, then you already know the value of having your day documented on film. Photography is still important, but pictures alone won't allow you to relive your wedding the way a beautifully edited cinematic video can.

The question, then, is whether you hire one or two wedding videographers. There are pros and cons to each, and the right choice for you depends on your budget, your timeline, and your vision for your wedding film.

Here are a few important factors to consider when you're deciding which route to go for your wedding videography package.

How much do you want to spend on wedding videography?

When a couple is contemplating wedding videography services, the package they choose is often dictated by how much they can afford to spend. Hiring a second videographer means paying for an additional person's time and talent, so if you're on a tight budget, you may only be able to afford one. However, couples with a little more flexibility in their funds can explore their options for a two-person team.

A mid-point between having one and two wedding videographers is a package that includes one main videographer and an assistant. The assistant won't be operating the camera for the whole day, as a second videographer would, but this person can help the main videographer set up audio equipment, scout out good angles and locations, and direct the couple and their wedding party while the videographer captures that perfect shot.

How soon do you want your wedding video?

We make our couples' edited wedding videos available within 8 to 12 weeks after their event. Most videographers give this type of range because the time it takes to create the finished video product(s) depends on the package the couple selected and the amount of footage we need to review.

There's no guarantee you'll have your wedding video a month earlier if you opt for a single, half-day videographer, but there's a chance it could take longer to edit if you choose two: Editing six hours of footage from one videographer is a very different process than piecing together footage from two videographers who filmed for 12 hours each.

Regardless of how many videographers you hire, your service provider should be able to give you access to all your raw footage long before the final edits are completed.

What kind of wedding film do you envision?

The biggest advantage of a second videographer is the variety of shots and perspectives that can be included in your final wedding video.

Wedding photography and videography is often heavily focused on the bride, but with a second videographer, both you and your fiancé will be able to have your moments in the spotlight. This is especially important for couples who plan to get ready for the ceremony in separate locations. One videographer can only film one of you at a time, but a second videographer ensures that both the bride and her ladies and the groom and his guys have their wedding prep time documented.

As with many creative endeavors, two heads are often better than one when it comes to shooting and editing a wedding video. While your videographers will be able to collaborate and work as a team, each will also bring their own individual style, flair, and vision to the finished product. A video that combines the work of two wedding videographers means you get two unique perspectives telling the same beautiful love story: yours.

No matter what kind of wedding videography you want, we have a package to fit your needs. Visit our pricing page to learn more, or reach out to request a quote.

Do I Need to Use My Venue's Preferred Vendor List?

If you and your fiancé have started looking at wedding venues, you've likely noticed that many of them advertise a "preferred vendor list."

This list may include local photographers, videographers, florists, entertainers, bakers, officiants, limo rental companies, etc. – and at a quick glance, it may seem like your venue has helped you plan your whole wedding in one shot.

But what exactly is a preferred vendor list, and what does it mean when a company appears on one? Most importantly, are you required to use vendors from your venue's list? These are some of most common questions engaged couples ask as they begin their vendor search, and some of them aren't always easy to answer. Here are some of the basics behind the concept of preferred vendor lists and what you should consider before booking your wedding service providers.

Why do venues have a preferred vendor list?

Venues often create preferred vendor lists with their own policies in mind. Some have restrictions about the third-party vendors that come in to work events, so the preferred vendor list makes it easy for couples to choose one that meets all the requirements. In fact, the venue may even require you to use certain vendors, such as their preferred caterer or cake baker, as part of your contract. Alternatively, the venue may charge a fee for using non-preferred vendors.

In other cases, a preferred vendor list is simply a collection of wedding professionals recommended by the venue. These vendors have an established, positive relationship with the venue and may have paid for their spot on the "preferred" list. The venue might also receive a commission from their preferred vendors when couples book them. With this type of preferred list, couples are usually under no obligation to use the recommended vendors.

Before you book your wedding venue, be sure to ask whether you would be contractually required to use certain providers. If the answer is yes, carefully consider whether you want to work with a venue that limits your vendor options. You don't want to fall in love with a wedding DJ company or videographer, only to find out the venue won't allow you to use them.

Should I use preferred vendors?  

Assuming your venue doesn't require you to choose from their preferred vendor list, you should always explore all your options before going with the venue-recommended professionals. That being said, a preferred vendor list might be a good starting point for your own research if you're not sure where to begin.

When evaluating preferred vendors, approach it the same way you would if you were looking for vendors on your own. Check out the vendor's website to get an idea of the work they do and the clientele they serve. Read online reviews and find out what other people have to say about working with them. Talk to them over the phone and in person to get a better idea of who the vendor is and how they approach their work. For example, if it's a videographer, ask them about their style of filming and how they typically edit wedding videos. For DJs, ask about the planning process and how much they incorporate the couple's requests when creating the playlist.

Remember, the vendors on your venue's preferred list may have a good reputation, but that doesn't mean you'll get along with them or like their style. A wedding is a significant investment and it's important that you're completely happy with every vendor you choose. Take your time, do your research, and only book a vendor when you feel 100 percent confident that they're the right one for your big day.

Whether we're on your venue's preferred vendor list or not, Hurricane Productions wants to help make your wedding day truly unforgettable. Visit our pricing page or get in touch with us for a custom quote on our wedding media and entertainment services.

Melissa and Frank - Mountain Creek Resort

We do a lot of New Jersey weddings near the Jersey Shore, but for Melissa and Frank Golz's big day, we got to enjoy a different side of the Garden State's natural beauty.

The couple's romantic mountaintop ceremony took place at Mountain Creek Resort, a ski resort in Vernon that host private events. Afterwards, the newlyweds and their guests headed to the resort's rustic Red Tail Lodge for the reception.

Melissa and Frank purchased our Turntable Entertainment Package, which included continuous entertainment by DJ and emcee Alvin Gay throughout their cocktail hour and reception. They also hired Hurricane Productions to capture their wedding events with photography and videography services. Photographer Corynn Egreczky provided full-day coverage for the couple, documenting every special moment from their wedding party preparations through the last dance of the evening. 

As part of our Short Movie Package, videographer Markus Robinson filmed Melissa and Frank's ceremony and reception (up to six hours of coverage).

Whether you need a DJ, a photographer, a videographer or all of the above, Hurricane Productions can help you celebrate your wedding day. Check out our all-inclusive service packages on our pricing page, or request a quote to discuss a custom package that fits your needs and budget.

Lisa and Jaime - Battleground Country Club

Lisa and Jaime Mapou held their fall wedding at Battleground Country Club. This Manalapan, New Jersey event venue features a sprawling golf course, a private ceremony area, and breathtaking views from its newly renovated clubhouse.

Hurricane Productions helped the couple celebrate their big day with entertainment and media services, but it wasn't the first time they've worked with the bride: Founders Vincent Velasquez and Strato Doumanis DJed and emceed Lisa's Sweet 16 over a decade ago. They were delighted to reprise their roles at her wedding reception as part of our Request Package. The Mapous opted to add a ceremony sound system and an attended photo booth to their package.

The couple also hired a full-day videographer to capture raw footage of their wedding events. After their wedding, they reached out to request an edited version. Our creative team quickly worked to turn Brandon Perera's footage into a three to five-minute highlight video for the newlyweds.

While most Hurricane couples select one of our video editing packages during the consultation phase, we're also happy to work with clients like Lisa and Jaime on post-wedding edits if they have a more flexible budget after the big day, or simply change their mind about having a wedding film. Whether you request edits one month or one year later, we'll pull your raw footage from our secure cloud server and create your video.
