Market Square at Crocker Park makes for a Beautiful Wedding Day
Erin and Sean united and became Mr. and Mrs. Pattison on June 8, 2019. Choosing Market Square at Crocker Park was a decision they made together, the first of many to come. With high ceilings, windows galore, green space and a modern feel, this venue had much to offer on their special day.
Erin and Sean chose to take advantage of the gorgeous June weather by having their ceremony outside. A picturesque scene was set on the 25,000 square feet of green space at Market Square at Crocker Park.
Selective Sound Entertainment provided all of the sound equipment necessary. By using hidden lapel microphones we were able to capture all of the emotions through the entire ceremony. This was important to Erin Sean so that nothing would be missed by their guests. As can be seen above, the sound equipment is tucked away out of sight. We didn’t want any of the equipment to interfere with the natural outdoor beauty. Nor did it get in the way of pictures of the bride and groom. It’s always our goal to have all of the focus on the couple and not our equipment. The presence of Selective Sound at any ceremony is to always enhance and never to take away from any couples special day.
Transforming the Blank Canvas
Market Square at Crocker Park gave Erin and Sean the opportunity to work with a very unique space that was basically a large blank canvas. During cocktail hour, the guests were still able to enjoy the outdoors. This was due to the 6 glass pained garage doors and a wall of windows. As the time drew closer towards Erin and Sean’s grand introduction they chose to make things more intimate. The lights were dimmed and the curtains were drawn over the windows. This allowed the warm glow from the candle lit tables set the mood.
To create more atmosphere, Erin and Sean chose to add washed out blue lighting. The wireless wedding LED lights , provided by Selective Sound Entertainment, were strategically placed so that the 39 foot ceilings would be accentuated. With the perfect linen choices, beautiful flowers, candlelight and uplighting, this couple did an excellent job of transforming this blank canvas.
The curtains were drawn and Selective Sound Entertainment’s DJ Marcus was pumping Seven Nation Army by White Stripes. The lively bridal party came in coupled together through the curtain, setting the tone for Erin and Sean’s grand entrance. The infamous Danger Zone, by Kenny Loggins, started to play. The guests were on their feet to give a big welcome to the new couple as they came through the curtain and across the floor. With an introduction like theirs it was no surprise that the rest of the evening was just as fun. As DJ Marcus kept the music going, the guests kept the dance floor packed all night long.
Recommendations for Future Couples Using this Venue
Sometimes it can be difficult to transform a blank canvas, especially a very large one. At Selective Sound Entertainment we enjoy having the ability to transform spaces. Therefore, we would like to mention a few things to keep in mind if you decide to have your wedding at Market Square at Crocker Park.
Firstly, lighting is a must! This specific venue has industrial lighting which means the lights are on or off, dimming is not possible. This can be a challenge when trying to create the perfect atmosphere for a wedding reception. Our suggestion for this venue is to add bistro lighting. With this in mind we would definitely want to make sure they were on a dimmer. Therefore, we can have them brighter during things like speeches and the cutting of the cake. The rest of the time we could keep them at a warm glow for the perfect ambiance.
Next, uplighting like Erin and Sean used, is a great choice as well. This technique adds not only needed light but color and wow factor as well. SSE has thousands of colors to choose from as well as the ability to have the colors change at different times during the evening.
Lastly, we would also recommend something fun like cryoblasts when making your grand entrance through the curtains. Cryoblasts are perfectly safe for any venue and add a spark of excitement for you and your guests.
