Schnee The DJ

Being a DJ is a lot more than playing music and looking flashy. My goal as a DJ is to create an atmosphere of organized fun, excitement and endless memories.

A professional DJ can manage event timing including making sure that people know when and where to walk in, when to speak and when pre-selected dances will be played. My 25+ years of experience helps me to know how to bring all planned activities within an event together so that things flow as smooth as possible. From helping coordinate the timing of the event with the venue or food service to coordinating with the photographer and or videographer to letting them know when and where things will occur, I help accomplish what needs to be done within the expected time frame.

I consider myself “user friendly”! I try to play all requests within the preset guidelines set by the hiring party and my vast experience as an emcee helps keep a friendly, fun atmosphere while subtly taking care of business.

From the pre-ceremony music, wedding ceremony, cocktails, introductions, dinner music and finally the dancing, Schnee the DJ will make your special day all that it should be ----
The most important day of your lives!

Matty D's Mobile DJ's & Photography

Our style of photography is solely based on what you want. Some brides prefer traditional photos such as a backdrop and posed type pictures. Whereas some brides prefer a more photojournalistic approach, such as more action photos that tell a story of the day. We recommend you do a mix of both styles, making your album a wonderful love story filled with lovely memories.

Matty D.'s Mobile DJ and Photography vows to provide you with an experienced photographer at a great price. We feel that your day should be captured by a photographer with a minimum of 5 years experience and 100 weddings on their resume. Our reputation in this industry for 10 years, stands for itself and we invite you to our beautiful gallery in Crystal Lake to see our work first hand.

Pastor Kurt Gamlin

I am an ordained pastor with the United Methodist Church in Woodstock. Over the years, I have had the great pleasure of working with brides and grooms to make their special day....special! I will work hard to make sure you feel the same way. I have led weddings in a variety of settings. Inside, outside, formal, informal, non-traditional, interfaith and otherwise. Some couples are worried that the service need be "too religious" but after working together we are able to strike a balance that feels good to them. I approach a wedding as this is the "brides" day and will do everything I can to help make it one of your most memorable days ever. If you have any questions, I am more than happy to begin the discussion with you.

Videography


M.A.K.Cinematography

MAK Photography is a northern Illinois company specializing in cinematography. MAK Photography offers cinema-style wedding films that showcase the highlights of your wedding day. Our films will capture the heartfelt moments of the day, leaving you with a smile on your face and tears in your eyes.
Videography versus cinematography —
Videography is capturing a moment from beginning to end. Moments are captured on a tripod with one angle of the shot. The whole purpose of this is to capture the entire event from start to finish. On the other hand, our cinematography tells a story by capturing the captivating mood of a moment in time (a groom's face when he first sees his bride, a guest wiping a tear, etc.). We move around to capture all different angles of your event to help tell the story of your wedding day with a more beautiful and heartwarming feel. Think about when you watch a home video versus a movie shown in theaters. You can see the difference. The style of shooting, quality of the video, and the storytelling are completely different. Our cinema films showcase all the beautiful details you spent months planning and all of the true emotion felt throughout the day.
