Erica had a vision of her wedding reception where her guests would be transported into a fanciful room based on the Great Hall at Hogwarts School of Wizardry in the Harry Potter books. Four long tables representing the four houses, floating candles overhead, and Christmas trees lining the room for the holiday season. We helped make her dream come true with extra decorations and event planning, along with an awesome team of wonderful vendors. Our DJ booth was dressed with the crests of the four houses. Our DJ/emcee was dressed as a Hogwarts student! Our photo booth picture strips and touch screen were adorned with Harry Potter-themed designs, and we offered Harry Potter-themed props such as wizard and witches' hats, wands, and Christmas scarves and mittens. We worked with Erica and Adam to incorporate a Chinese Lion Dance, and developed the timeline to keep the night running smoothly. The result? Magical!
