Elkhart Wedding DJ Chris & Abby

Monday, August 20th, 2012

It was a beautiful day on Saturday for the Elkhart wedding of Chris & Abby. You could not have asked for a more perfect day to get married outside at this wedding and the Music Machine had the honor of being the DJ company that entertained the guests at the reception, held at Christiana Creek Country Club in Elkhart.

The Music Machine DJ arrived early and was ready to go before the wedding ceremony began out on the golf course. Abby and her bridesmaids waited in the banquet hall and our DJ played a few fun tunes for the ladies that got them dancing.

Elkhart DJ, Disc JockeyWhat better way to start your wedding ceremony than with a happy dace. A couple of songs that our DJ entertained the bridal party with was I Got A Feeling by Black Eyed Peas, Chappel Of Love, and sent them outside to White Wedding by Billy Idol.

After the ceremony it was back inside for a cocktail hour of Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Paul Anka and many others requested by the newlyweds. For their first dance our DJ spun Rascal Flatts song for the first dance.

It was a great night at this Elkhart Wedding with a wide selection of music being loved by the guests. Our DJ played a wide selection of disco, hip hop, rock and pop and yes the most popular song of the year was requested, Call Me Lately. Thanks to the Matt and the staff of Christiana Creek, our DJ had a great time working with them.

Monday, June 18th, 2012

Master Disc Jockey and owner of Music Machine, Paul Chamberlin, had the honor of serving as Master of Ceremonies and Disc Jockey for the wedding reception of Daniel & Sara at Tippecanoe Place in South Bend, under a tent. What a terrific couple and what a fabulous wedding reception. It was a hot day but everything went smoothly thanks to the talented team of Wedding Planner Cynthia Basker and Celebrated Events from South Bend.

The day started off for Daniel & Sara at the beautiful Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the campus of Notre Dame where they were married. What a beautiful place to be married in,the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. From there the guests and family were bussed to downtown South Bend and the grounds of Tippecanoe Place for the reception where Celebrated Events along with MichaelAngelos had turned the grounds into a wedding paradise with a slightly rustic feel.

The newlyweds enjoyed a wonderful first dance to the song “You Send Me”–Sam Cooke. Afterwards the party kicked into high gear with the guests dancing the night away to the very end of the reception!

Check out some of photos we shot of the tent/decorations and dancing below!

South Bend DJ | Palais Royale

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Every wedding is a dream come true, special and unique and we have the privilege of helping many South Bend brides achieve their dream wedding and reception every year. As DJs in South Bend helping accomplish these wedding dreams for brides in northern Indiana, is very rewarding and fulfilling and we treasure the memories from every one of our former brides and grooms. Every so often though a wedding reception comes along that is one for the record books where guests, newlyweds and the disc jockey just clicks into one unstoppable rocking party that you wish would never end. A wedding reception that we will never forget.

The wedding reception of Aimee and Mark is one of those events. Aimee and Mark were married at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the campus of Notre Dame and chose the Palais Royale, in South Bend, for their wedding reception. From the moment the guests entered the Palais Royale, the fun just didn’t stop until the lights came on. It kicked off with an incredibly sweet toast by the maid of honor and an equally touching toast by the best man. From there the Aimee and Mark cut their spectacular looking cake and took to the dance floor and were soon joined by their family and friends.

Later in the reception the groomsmen rolled a piano into the center of the dance floor and Mark sat down at the ivory while Aimee led everyone in a rousing rendition of Piano Man. Check out the images below, this was one wedding for the our record books!

Wedding Planning – Find Your Dream Team!

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

I came across this article on the Huffington Post today that offers great advice for those planning their wedding day.

You are unique.  Your ideas matter.  Choosing the right vendors for wedding and reception can be daunting.  Whether it be flowers, photographers, caterers, disc jockey entertainment, or photo booths take the time to interview, call references, read blogs, but most of all… trust your instincts.  If a wedding “deal” sounds too good to be true, it probably is.  Will you be sacrificing your wedding vision to get a cheaper rate or are you being talked out of your plans to fit someone else’s limitations?

Find experienced wedding professionals. Hire creative wedding vendors with organization and personality.

And once you’ve found your perfect match, stop looking! Don’t second-guess your decision by continuing to see what you could have had. Trust in the professionals you made an educated decision to hire; now enjoy the planning experience!

Culver Wedding DJ | Lindsay & Ryan

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

Music Machine was the disc jockey, in Culver, for the wedding reception of Lindsay & Ryan at the Woodcraft Camp Mess Hall. This rustic set wedding reception was a lot of fun to be the disc jockey for! These wedding guests and our beautiful bride and handsome groom were ready to party and the dance floor was packed for the entire night.

The Woodcraft Camp Mess Hall is a really interesting set up with sweeping angled columns along the middle. The room is designed for open air with screens all around the space. However, in true camp spirit, the weather was cold and windy. Plan B took effect and custom tarps were in place around building. It did NOT dampen the spirits of the bridal party or the guests and everyone enjoyed the event.

Our Tivoli Photo Booths was in place for instant photo strips and a scrapbook for Mr. & Mrs. Rogers.

Congratulations to Lindsay & Ryan and thank you for hiring Music Machine and Tivoli Photo Booths to entertain at your wedding reception!

Not only was the Music Machine there but our sister company was too!

New Carlisle Wedding DJ | Thank You Letter

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

We love feedback from our brides and grooms! How exciting it was to open the mail today and find this note about a reception that we were the DJs for, about 3 weeks ago at St. Stanislaus/Terre Coupee Hall in New Carlisle.

A 4-H referral!  In my gig as the St. Joseph County 4-H Fair photographer, I’ve met lots of great kids and those kids have become wonderful adults.  I am so happy that Kristi and her parents, Mick & Julie, chose me to be their wedding reception disc jockey for Kristi and Steve’s wedding.  I look forward to seeing you all again soon!
