Mike Staff Productions has it all. I talked details with my DJ, photographer, and videographer a week before my wedding, but they were all very professional and easy to get in touch with. They showed up on time, helped our day stay on schedule, and were very professional. Highly recommend.Happy Bride, Carrie
Carrie and Matthew’s Love Story
Matthew and I were on a walk through the woods, along a river bank when he got down on one knee and asked me to be his forever! Of course I said, “yes!”
Our Wedding Video
A video was important to me because watching even the small trailer version, you get an awesome glimpse into our Wedding day. Five minutes of watching a video is easier for others to do than scrolling through our album of 1500 plus pictures. I’m sappy and will watch our video for years to come to relive the most perfect day! I know it will surely be amazing.
Side note: Rocky [our videographer] is absolutely great at his job. He even gave me his hand warmers when he knew I was freezing posing for our romantics!
Our Wedding Vision
Our vision for our wedding was elegant yet fun! We honored our family traditions but spiced things up with many DIY wine inspired projects! From our barrel head welcome sign, to our wine key favors, scarecrow wine box centerpieces, and even a wine barrel cake stand, our guest knew that once the fireworks went off, it was time to party!
Our Wedding Photos
Shannon and Olivia did awesome capturing our big day! Our detail pictures show true to how much planning went into them. Then our first look pictures were a special moment where it was just Matt and his daughter, and then of course just the two of us. Thank you for allowing us to step away from everyone else and have those pictures and memories to ourselves. Those will be pictures we always treasure. Also, Anytime I wanted certain group shots or individual shots, Shannon and Olivia made it happen! They also did a great job capturing a wide variety of our guests!
Our Wedding DJ
I don’t even remember a time our dance floor was empty! Randy was our DJ and I basically told him to just do his thing. We had no set playlists, just some general details about our guests, (age range, what stations we played on our devices, and a special note not to do the chicken dance) and Randy worked magic! He kept us on schedule, played last minute requests, and made sure our wedding guests were able to dance the night away!
Our first dance was to George Strait- I Cross my Heart. We both love old school country and didn’t want a song that was over played. This way when we do hear our Wedding song, it will be a special moment when we can reflect on our first dance as Husband and Wife.
