Interactive Uplighting!

We started off with a nice blue and transitioned to pick every 10 minutes.

In our efforts to give you the best that technology has to offer, we now carry an option of uplighting that allows us to give you more than just static color!  Yes, you'll find that many DJ companies can provide uplighting that will match the colors of your wedding, but with our computerized and wireless lights, we can use those same lights to bring the dance floor to life!  But before we discuss the dance floor, let me first tell you about something else no one else does...

In mid transition from blue to pink.

So, let's say that your colors are a light blue and purple and it's dinner hour.  Instead of just the standard static colors of blue and purple, think about having us create a nice subtle fade that changes from blue to purple.  It'll give you a great effect, which the end result will look amazing and give you more options!  Now onto the dance floor effect...

Now we're into full party mode!

Once it's time to start dancing, we can completely change the effects of the lights to give you something that interacts with the dance floor!  Now we're into party mode and the entire room looks awesome.  This is very easy for us to help you with, and because of that, it's only a very small fee to give you these results.  Check out the video below to see it in action!

Lighting Design for the John Hiatt Concert at Little Palm Island

Remember that song, "Have A Little Faith In Me"?  Yep, that was John Hiatt and he did an amazing job playing that during his encore performance.  We were hired by Little Palm Island to provide stage lighting that needed to be both intimate and effective.  We chose warm colors to accent the lobster traps and stage, while using white to light up the banner before the concert (the light on the banner was later turned off to direct attention to the artist).  The string lighting design was our little trick to bring warmth down onto John adding to the intimate effect, and added a nice touch to the overall look.

One of the things I like to do when lighting an event is to bring some attention to a unique item or texture around the space I'm working with.  In this case, the lobster traps on and around the stage were perfect.  Highlighting the lobster traps while watching a concert on a beautiful beach?!  I couldn't ask for any better item!  It's little tricks like this that really make our designs top-notch.

When you hire us, you get a team that cares about detail.  We spend extra time hiding and taping down wires so that there are never any distractions keeping you from enjoying the beauty of the event space.  We have gone through years of training to learn about perfect lighting placement and colors that compliment each other, leaving you with something that is absolutely pleasant to the eye.  If you are hosting an event and in need of lighting, it would be our pleasure to help you create a spectacular night.  Complemented with a DJ, either myself or someone from my team, let us give you the peace of mind you deserve.

2016 Azimut Key West Rendezvous

Havana Night - Truman Little White House, Key West

Another fantastic event goes in the books for MarineMax and Azimut!  Held at the Little White House in Key West, the weather was perfect and the location couldn't have been any better for their Havana Night themed event.  We provided DJ service, dance floor lighting, as well as a photo booth, keeping the tunes perfectly in sync with their theme.  While the photo booth was getting a ton of use during cocktails, salsa and merengue music was keeping everyone on the dance floor later in the evening.  

Furniture provided by Unearth Vintage in Miami

The MarineMax team worked hard putting the perfect list of vendors together to create an evening that really made everyone feel special.  From the decor, provided by Prestige Event and Unearth Vintage, to the food, which was provided by Great Events Catering, nothing was overlooked.  She even hired some professional dancers, Dancing with Lucy, to help teach everyone some latin dances!

How Lighting Makes Your Wedding Pop! David & Israel's Wedding - Casa Marina, Key West

Your love is bright as ever...

When I first spoke with this awesome couple, they knew right away that they wanted a real show.  Music was huge on their list of priorities, but they knew that complimented with lighting would really make their wedding stand out.  XO by Beyonce was their first dance song and very special to them.  They wanted me to create a lighting show built around that song using red as the main color.  What I was able to do was incorporate computer lighting software to achieve the most dramatic effects during that dance.  There were spot lights on them during certain moments, and then when they asked their loved ones to join them in the dance, I was able to create more lighting effects that made it seem like they were just as much a part of the moment.  This is all done with the best computer programming to give you some amazing results.  There is really no one else in Key West that does lighting like this.

And this is how the dance floor looked all night

As a wedding DJ in Key West, I spend countless hours in my office organizing and learning new ways to give you the best night possible; DJ'ing is truly my passion.  This wedding was just as exciting for me as it was for them, because they gave me their dream wedding details and let me run with it.  They gave me a small playlist and asked me to just read the crowd and "do what you do".  That liberty allowed me to pull out tracks that haven't been played in awhile, creating a dance floor that was packed and full of energy all night.  Because I actively perform an artform known as beat-matching, it is important for me to be able to play to the crowd and mix my music to the same beat so that no one ever wants to leave the floor.  I constantly bring the energy up and down, depending on the mood, so that everyone gets a chance to enjoy different styles of dancing.

And they didn't stop with just the DJ and computerized light show.  They also rented our photo booth, which was a HUGE hit as always.  Great props, insanely fast printer, and studio-quality camera made all the goofiness look amazing.  Everyone really just had an awesome time!

Now for some vendor love.  It really helps working with some of the most talented people on the island!

Lea & Chad's Beautiful Casa Marina Wedding

Not only is it a treat to be working at one of the most elegant wedding destinations in Key West, but when you have a fun and easy-going couple, weddings are just that much more fun!  When we first spoke with Lea and Chad, they knew exactly what they wanted and entertainment was high on their list.  We provided DJ service, a photo booth, and custom monogram we call "Name In Lights".  The rest of the entertainment was provided by all of their awesome guests who knew how to have a good time.  The photo booth was busy all night and the dance floor was getting a lot of use!  You will also see their Name In Lights package in a few of the pictures where they chose to have us customize a monogram that we projected above the head table all night.  This gave them a unique touch to all the pictures and it really came out nice.  Limelight Photography knew exactly how to use natural light in this setting which makes that monogram pop!  

It's always a pleasure working with Simply You wedding planners, because they help take care of everything while we're able to focus on what we do best:  help you have fun!  Jenn was the coordinator for the night, and I'd highly suggest her or one of the other ladies if you're really looking for first-class service.  Other vendors that helped make the night a success included:

Officiant:  Steve Torrence
Flowers:  Milan Events
Chair Rentals:  Prestige Party Rentals
Cake:  Cakes by Karol
Make-Up & Hair:  Casa Salon

Jimmy was their DJ for the night and we had a great conversation about how much fun everyone had.  Lea was gracious enough to leave him and the photo booth team and wonderful review which sums up how great of a time both her and Chad had!  

We were so impressed with Visualize from the moment we sent in our inquiry email. The responsiveness was amazing. We are from Texas so finding the perfect DJ in Key West was not easy, but Scott made it an easy decision for us. We had to phone conference instead of meeting in person. Scott walked me through the entire process and was there every step of the way. I am 28 and work crazy long hours and he made sure to keep on me for all the deadlines. Without his persistence, it would not have been as organized as it was. Jimmy was our MC and DJ day of and he was amazing! Scott and Jimmy helped us to build the perfect wedding list of songs, but we also had a lot of open ended areas of the night. Jimmy played all the music we wanted and at the most appropriate times. It was so perfect. We had a pretty small destination wedding and there was not one moment that the dance floor was empty, and that was my goal. He made sure to cater to all ages and man was the timing perfect. We all had so much fun, As the bride, I think I even spent too much time on the dance floor. ;) lol! They are very personable, professional and extremely experienced. We were looking for a DJ that would be outgoing and upbeat and their personalities were on point. Jimmy kept the crowd going and excited. I would recommend Visualize Entertainment and both Scott and Jimmy to everyone! We also utilized their photo booth and WOW, was that a hit. Everyone loved the photo booth and looking through the book they made us after the wedding was so much fun! It really captures the night and all the personalized messages added so much to the book. At the last minute we decided to add the, Name In Lights, and I am so happy we did. It looked so beautiful and added that special touch to the reception ballroom. It was a perfect personalized touch. Thank you Scott, Jimmy and Visualize Entertainment for making our special day EXTRA SPECIAL! We hope your business only continues to grow and succeed.
