8 Groundbreaking Moments of 2014

This list usually stands as our annual “Top 25 Live Events.” Although that feature is wildly popular amongst our private event clients, we felt like it was time to move away from that format.

Hurricane continues to evolve and the question always arises: What else does your company do?

This list is a true snapshot of who we are, what we do and where we are heading in 2015:

8. Vincent and Strato launched Hurricane Innovation LLC, offer social media consulting to small and mid-sized businesses.

Starting another business isn't just about creating a website or coming up with a name. We needed clients. We needed a vision. So with the help of some of our existing web clients, Rutgers University and the addition of Journal Multimedia, Caesars Entertainment, and The Olde Mill Inn, we evolved into a social media and video consulting firm.

And we have our former General Manager, Julia Crimi, to thank for making sure that Hurricane Productions operated at full strength while we jumped into our new endeavor.

7. We got more social (and accessible) to our clients with #HurricaneSocial

Every company should do this: Let your employees be themselves ... and share it on all forms of social media.

With the help of a company-wide hashtag, we implemented a way to aggregate all of this content from each popular social media platform and display it in real-time.

If you want a true snapshot of what we're doing, where we're going (as a company and individuals) please visit HurricaneProductions.com/social or just type #hurricanesocial into your favorite social media platform.

It looks great on Instagram.

Crafty Bride Designs Her Own Wedding

Many brides and grooms love "do-it-yourself" projects for their wedding. They scour Pinterest with a fine-tooth comb, looking for inspiration to make their wedding day something truly special. Crafty bride Chrissy took her DIY skills to the next level.

Chrisst designed four of her own custom GOBOS, all decorations including centerpieces, a huge custom facade for the DJ, bouquets, and even her own gown. That's a serious undertaking, considering Chrissy and husband Joe still had the whole rest of the wedding to plan.

To tie all her design elements together, Chrissy and Joe needed the right venue. Enter the Stone House at Stirling Ridge in Warren, NJ. The Stone House's Grand Ballroom's rustic yet contemporary architecture was the perfect compliment to the wedding's fall floral theme, with more than enough space for the crafty bride and groom's friends and family to celebrate.

With the venue and design elements taken care of, Chrissy and Joe knew their entertainment was in the right hands with Hurricane Productions. Co-founders Strato Doumanis and Vincent Velasquez took the reins as DJ and MC respectively, with Chrissy and Joe joining in on the fun with some live drumming action. In addition to entertainment, Hurricane provided dynamic twin-totem lighting, accentuating uplighting to bring out Chrissy's gorgeous self-designed GOBO fixtures, and Hurricane Pulse: an Instagram streaming feature that displays photos guests take using their special hashtag (#chrissyandjoe).
