In a Fog About Which Haze Machine To Buy???

March 23, 2017 by Randy Lehrman
Remember way back when (and sometimes now) all we saw were the $39 fogger specials?  Halloween, carnivals, and Bar-Mitzvahs...That was the only effect we had to enhance our lighting.  The giant fog cloud that enveloped our room also made old people cranky, asthmatics cough to death, and photographers mad with boggy photos.  Then the movie studios created haze machines to alleviate the smoke and create something of an atmosphere changer...and now we have these in our business to enhance all of our amazing lighting and create a whole "Club Vibe" wherever we go. As I use a ton of lighting on my events, I decided to test a few haze machines and then run a finalists test with the two top haze machines that are both $400 and below.  The final battle is between the Chauvet Hurricane Haze 4 and the American ...

What to do When Clients Aren’t Responding

March 23, 2017 by Jason Rubio
We've all been there. Whether it's a wedding, party, quinceanera or any event, you need certain key information to make sure the event goes well. Almost 100% of the time, our clients will fill out our documents and return them to us, usually by the deadline. However, once in a while, we get clients who simply don't do this. It's frustrating when this happens. You send multiple emails and no reply! You try to be polite, but as the deadline passes and you don't receive a reply or your documents, it gets harder. So what do you do? There are a few options you have. First, check your email history and see if there are other people that were copied. Often times brides will email and grooms will also email, and emailing them both will help in getting a reply. If you've tried this, then move to calling/texting. W... [read more]

Wedding Horror Story: Unpracticed Drinking

March 22, 2017 by Tony Barthel
There are a lot of people, including most of my own friends, who can be considered accomplished drinkers. While I wouldn’t qualify these people as alcoholics, they are no stranger around their drink of preference. Then there are people who drink rarely and many who don’t drink at all. Until their wedding day. It is unfortunate that some of the more experienced drinkers feel that everybody has to be part of their party and particularly sad when the object of their attention is a virgin drinker and happens to also be the bride. Such was the case as a wedding took place up in a beautiful country club WeddingHorroroverlooking the ocean in Palos V... [read more]
