Krista and Joe’s Wedding at Martinelli Event Center!

Krista Gomez and Joe Mancuso became Mrs. and Mr. Mancuso on September 22nd, 2012 at Martinelli Event Center, and we were lucky enough to be on hand for their special day! They selected Nick to be their DJ, and they also decided to use our Event Lighting services in the courtyard and the event center. Nick first met with the couple in May, and right from the start you could tell that his style matched with theirs perfectly. They had a few meetings together, and their wedding day was here before we knew it!

The couple chose a color scheme of different shades of purple and champagne, and they had fun touches sprinkled throughout the reception. Check out the scrumptious candy bar and elegant photo table. AND THAT CAKE! So beautiful and elegant. Krista and Joe picked a lot of great vendors to work with, and that always makes our job a lot easier. Karl from Delford West provided the beautiful floral arrangements, and Mark from MSR Photography captured all the beautiful moment. All the photos in this blog were taken by Nick, but we are looking forward to receiving some more images from Mark…so keep your eyes peeled!

Krista and Joe’s wedding took place all over the Martinelli property, with the ceremony being held on the back lawn, the cocktail hour in the courtyard, dinner in the event center, and dancing brought all the guests back to the courtyard. The couple decided that they wanted our event lighting both in the event center and the courtyard, and it gave us a great opportunity to do something we have never done before! We did GOBO patterns and uplights in the event center, and then had some market lighting and GOBO patterns outside in the courtyard! The market lights were great to dance under, and Nick made sure to keep the party going!

Krista and Joe’s wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect! There wasn’t a single cloud in the sky, and it was a comfortably warm day and evening. We loved working with this relaxed and fun-loving couple, and we wish them all the best in their future together.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Mancuso!

Phillips/Mikel Wedding at the Martinelli Event Center


Jodi Phillips and Matt Mikel became Mrs. and Mr. Mikel in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at the Martinelli Event Center on August 6th, 2011. It was a sunny and warm August day, without a single cloud in the sky. Jodi and Matt are a very energetic couple, and that energy definitely shined through during their ceremony. They exchanged jokes and laughter, which of course led to both Jodi and Matt shedding some happy tears.



The party moved in to the Banquet Room at the Martinelli Event Center, where the color palette of chocolate and ivory looked stunning with the amber uplighting and GOBO washes. Jodi and Matt’s energy was magnified throughout the reception, and it seemed as though everyone was bit by the energy bug! Jodi’s father gave a speech that was absolutely hilarious, and he brought the house down with laughter. The guests all had a great time in the photo booth, which was provided by D. Lillian Photography. She was the photographer for the wedding as well, and she provided all the pictures on this blog. We had an AMAZING time working with her! You can learn more about her at www.dlillianphotography.com, or call her at 916.662.3513.



Our DJ, Marshall, made sure to keep everyone on the dance floor, busting a move until the late hours of the evening. The bridal party made sure to get in on the action, by standing on the chairs at the head table and getting their groove on to Ke$ha’s “Your Love Is My Drug”. The real crowd-pleaser, however, was when the groom’s mother was introduced to the Oak Ridge Boys’ classic hit “Elvira”. The dance floor was packed, as every single guest at the wedding joined the bridal party in line-dancing.



Congratulations Jodi and Matt! We wish you all the best in your marriage, and we want to thank you for having us be a part of your special day!
