Our Favorite Wedding Venue: The Midtown Loft and Terrace

People dancing at a wedding at the Midtown Loft and Terrace

One of the best parts about being a entertainment company is getting to play at some of the most amazing venues in New York City. One of our favorites is the Midtown Loft and Terrace, with a gorgeous rooftop and exquisite views of the Empire State Building, a wedding here is the definition of extravagance and elegance.

Our perfect wedding would pair this outstanding venue with some other personal favorites, which would include, catering from Pies & Thighs, a staple in Williamsburg and the Lower East Side, with fried chicken that will always leave you wanting more.

Not only can Manhattan wedding DJ Bigger Than Life DJS, send you to all the best vendors and sites, with years of experience we can provide creativity in helping choose the soundtrack to your perfect day. Bride, Haiyun and groom, Grant, experienced that first hand.

Working together on the perfect set list, their wedding day played out with an eclectic mix of songs to keep them dancing through the night. The introductions were playful, welcoming the parents of both the bride and groom with T.I. “Bring ‘Em Out” and the bride and groom themselves, to “Beyonce Crazy in Love.

To keep things fun, ladies danced and caught the bouquet to “It’s Raining Men”, and everyone watched the cake cutting to “Sugar Sugar” by The Archies.
Great food, drinks, and location, topped off by a soundtrack that you will never forget, this is our idea of the perfect wedding day.

A review from wedding wire for the wedding at Crest Hollow Country Club

What came next, was a surprise to everyone, including the groom. With the help of BT LDJ, bride, Crystal, surprised her new husband with a live marching band accompanied by dancers. In her review on Wedding Wire, Crystal describes how this “last minute skit” would not have happened without the help of the DJ’s who in just a few days helped her bring it all together, saying “The DJ did everything on cue, he only had a few days notice and my surprise to my husband and guests went through perfectly. This is the best choice for any event”.

Poconos Wedding at The Lodge at Mountain Springs Lake Resort

Young girls dancing on the dancefloor with special lighting effectsWedding Venue: The Lodge at Mountain Springs Lake Resort.
Location: Readers, Pa (Poconos Mountains)
Bride: Clarissa
Groom: Sean

 

Clarissa and Sean live in Brooklyn and work in New York City. Sean grew up in the Poconos so they decided to have the wedding in the Pocono mountains near Readers Pennsylvania. It was a 1 ½ Hour drive from New York City.

The Couple selected BTLDJS Grand Lighting Package which includes a DJ, MC, Classic light show and 15 wireless Led uplights.

 

Clarissa and Sean gave us a glowing review on the Wedding wire

Clarissa and Sean loved their wedding so much that they gave us this great review on wedding wire saying, We were very picky when selecting our DJ services because we knew that the music and dance experience was one of the most important on the wedding day; we wanted it to truly be a party! Enrique and Vince were very professional and accommodating when it came to our requests. We were very specific with the music we wanted played. My family is Dominican and my husband's family is Filipino; they were able to incorporate some Spanish music seamlessly to the reception music. They stuck to our Must Play list as well as our Do Not Play list. All songs played were mixed skillfully with smooth transitions. My guests were dancing the whole time and I was so excited to not see many people sitting down and on the dance floor instead! The MC had the perfect amount of involvement with our guests, they do exactly what you tell them you need for your wedding, whether it be a lot or no involvement. They also provided up-lighting for our reception and it was done very tastefully. Overall, when I think back to my wedding reception, I remember dancing non-stop and having a blast. Several of my guests said it was the most fun they had ever had at a wedding
