Sparkle Lounge 2014 at the Ronald Reagan Building

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

Every year our team at Chris Laich Music Services  looks forward to being a part of the Ronald Reagan Building’s annual Sparkle Lounge.  The event is always incredible and is the perfect opportunity to catch up with wedding industry friends and network with event professionals around the DC region.  Despite our crazy winter, the Winter Lodge theme for this year’s event was perfect.

It was wonderful to work with the team of vendors which included Stephen Bobb Photography, Hargrove, Inc., DC Rental, Projection Presentation Technology, Elegance & Simplicity Wedding & Event Designers, Inc., CORT Event Furnishings, and Booth-o-Rama Photobooths!

The Ronald Reagan’s Atrium Ballroom. which is already an amazing space, was impeccably designed this year and of course there was great food, drink and soundtrack!  Here are some of the highlights:

Chris Laich Music DJ Set-up, Whitehall Manor

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

Last week, we shared Kristen and Patrick’s beautiful wedding at theHistoric Whitehall Manor, which is one of our favorite indoor/outdoor settings to plan a wedding.  Whitehall Manor is “rich in history and located at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains on a 50 acre estate with spectacular views and a canopy of century old trees all surrounding a 200 year old manor house.”  Our team at Chris Laich Music Services always looks forward to our weddings at Whitehall Manor.

Whitehall Manor is the quintessential destination for weddings in Northern Virginia with the close proximity to DC and located in the Virginia Winery region with a variety of hotels and bed & breakfasts.   It is such an elegant setting for weddings outside and indoors.  In fact, because weather can be unpredictable Whitehall has a versatile indoor backup plan in the event that your wedding can not be outside, and they allow couples to decide the day-of.  We are always prepared to make any last minute changes which is why we always bring our Bose wireless speakers for ample volume and sound anywhere!

Here are some photos from Kristen and Patrick’s wedding, it was a lovely day so we were able to have the ceremony outside and then had their reception inside the ballroom, here are a few pictures we took of our set-up.
