Star Wars (lite) themed wedding in Petoskey Michigan

Updated: Jun 10, 2019

#MayThe4thBeWithYou is one of those hashtags that some people get, and some don't. For Katelynn and Alex (as well as their puppy Rey) the wedding date had to be this!

Thomas, the owner of A+, was asked to not just be their DJ and master of Ceremonies for the wedding celebration; he was honored as their officiant too. Together they created a customized wedding ceremony, with just the right amount of feels, and some humor too.

I LOVE these two.

After their ceremony, they headed over to the Emmett County Community Center for their reception. Blue uplighting was used throughout the entire space, along with the largest DJ lighting package offered. Katelynn and Alex opted for the Ultimate Wedding package and that's exactly what they got! A+ pulled out all the stops to make the wedding celebration a memorable one. When the wedding party arrived, we started the wedding party introductions. To create an awesome flow, we moved right into "The Love Story". "The Love Story" is something that Thomas is trained to perform. He is the ONLY entertainer in northern Michigan that has taken the Love Story workshops, and it shows.


Katelynn and Alex react to a poignant part of their love story.

Because it was a Star Wars themed wedding, their Love Story needed to be EPIC. Thomas created this scrolling video, like the opening scene of all Star Wars Movies, and brought the lights down. Tears, laughter, and surprises are a part of every great Love Story.


Immediately following was their first dance! They selected "Running Home to You" by Grant Gustin. It was a great song that A+ had never used before. (They sure do love personalizing a couple's event!). After the First Dance, they moved into toasts and then a great dinner buffet from Julienne Tomatoes. When dinner was finished they jumped into the cake cutting ceremony, parents' dances, and open dancing!

A+ brought out all the stops for Katelynn and Alex with the video screen with their names on it during dinner, and some music videos and visualizations during the open dancing. It was an amazing night with A+ Event Entertainment, and the photo booth captured some amazing pics throughout the evening!

May the 4th be with you!
