Chris Laich Music Set Up, Wolf Trap

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

We have seen a big surge in rustic and barn weddings and our area has some great options.  Our team at Chris Laich Music Services loves working at the Barns at Wolf Trap.  Conveniently located in Vienna, VA on the groups of the Wolf Trap National Park Center.  The Barns at Wolf Trap is a gorgeous barn location, perfect for weddings and special events; “this historical showpiece is comprised of two eighteenth century barns joined together under one roof.”

The Barns at Wolf Trap is an amazing venue.   The English Barn and lobby is great for a small reception or meeting area and the German Barn is great for larger events.  The setting offers rustic charm but with modern conveniences (parking, kitchen, dressing room etc.).  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 Set Up, Riverside on the Potomac

Thursday, 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:

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg, VA is a stunning four diamond resort; it has incredible golf courses, a full service spa, and located near Virginia’s Wine Region.  It is a wonderful location for a wedding in Northern, VA.  Our team at Chris Laich Music Services always looks forward to our weddings at the Lansdowne Resort.

Chris Laich Music DJ Set-up, GW Masonic Memorial

Wednesday, 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:
