Chris Laich Music Set Up, Riverside on the Potomac

October 16th, 2014

One of the reasons we love working in the DC area is the diverse settings and venues we get to work at for our weddings and events.  Our team at Chris Laich Music Services loves working at Riverside on the Potomac.  Located in Loudon County, Riverside is a gorgeous rustic setting.

If you are looking for a picturesque barn setting with charm, we highly recommend Riverside on the Potomac.  Couples can do everything on site (ceremony, cocktail hour and reception).  To accommodate for the size of the space and using multiple areas, we always bring our bose wireless speakers for ample sound and coverage throughout the event!

Here are some photos from a recent wedding of our set-up:

Chris Laich Music DJ Set-up, Sam Riggs

September 17th, 2014

One of the best kept secrets at the University of Maryland, is no longer a secret.  Our team at Chris Laich Music Services loves working at the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center, which is a great choice for corporate events and weddings.  What started as a space for U of M alum to congregate and entertain, is now a wonderful event space for everyone.

We love the stunning event spaces, gardens and versatile spaces to entertain.  With the multitude of spaces weddings of virtually all sizes can be accommodated.  As well as couples looking to have their ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in one location.  To accommodate for the size of the space and using multiple areas, we always bring our bose wireless speakers for ample sound and coverage throughout the event!

Earlier this summer we had the pleasure to work with one of the sweetest couples for their Virginia wedding at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens.  Alexandra and Carter had a wedding filled with joy!  It was wonderful to work with Katie DeLorme Photography, the photos are absolutely stunning from this wedding and we couldn’t wait to share them!  The staff at Meadowlark did an amazing job, and we could just tell that all of Alexandra and Carter’s guests were having the best day ever.

Chris Laich Music DJ Set-up, GW Masonic Memorial

August 27th, 2014

We are spoiled living in Washington, DC and having access to so many gorgeous Monuments and Memorials.  The George Washington Masonic Memorial in Old Town, Alexandria is also a gorgeous setting for a DC wedding.  Family and friends will be impressed by the unique setting, and can take advantage of the observation deck with amazing views of Alexandria and DC.  Our team at Chris Laich Music Services always looks forward to our weddings at the GW Masonic Memorial.

With it’s stunning architecture and location in Old Town, many couples in the area seek out the GW Masonic Memorial to rent for their wedding.  It’s a venue that offers a few different spaces for weddings and social/corporate events.  Because the main ballroom is surrounded by columns, the space is beautiful but sound can be tricky!  The last thing we want is the volume to be too soft or too loud and we definitely don’t want to detract from the space by wires and huge speakers.  We always bring our sleep Bose wireless speakers for ample volume and sound anywhere!

Here are some photos from a recent wedding of our set-up:
