Cage and Aquarium happily attended the 10th Annual Chicago LGBTQ Wedding Expo on March 18, 2018. The event was hosted at Hotel Chicago.  Rainbow Wedding Network is a wedding show tailored for same-sex couples. The expo creates a welcoming environment full of allies and vendors to help plan the Big Day. Our DJs set the mood with tunes while we met some amazing couples in the midst of wedding planning. Several vendors auctioned off their services or gifts for the raffle, and one lucky couple won a FREE full wedding ceremony! 

Host: Rainbow Wedding Network

Venue: Hotel Chicago

C&A DJs: Michael Rodriguez and Sandra Urquiaga

C&A Photographers: Jade Hull and Kristin Parra

 

Jeff and Lindy’s vintage inspired wedding was perfectly placed at Salvatore’s in Chicago in February. Lindy’s birdcage veil and fur wrap looked stunning with her classic cascading floral bouquet from Anna Held Florals. The day began with a few intimate portraits at Chicago’s Union Station of the bride and groom. The day finished with a lovely ceremony and lively reception at Salvatore’s in Lincoln Park. Here are a few of our favorite images to recap the day!

What happens when a venue decides to pair with a music company and their favorite event industry vendors to throw a spectacular event? Wine will flow and tunes will radiate vibes throughout Napa Valley’s Flora Springs Family Estate Winery. Live music and DJ sets were performed by Ivy Hill entertainers and Cage and Aquarium’s very own Tyler Huffman (aka Bothsides). Other event partners offered their services in the “cave” while guests enjoyed Trilogy wines by Flora Springs. Cage and Aquarium’s Shelley Anderson captured the evening and here are a few of our favorite photos!

Cage and Aquarium hosts an event a few times a year with our friends at Revolution Brewing in Logan Square. It's called "Date Night." Sounds fun right?!

Date Night is our DJ showcase where our future clients can come sip on some beers, eat delicious food, and listen to all of our DJs play sets. We cycle through our DJ Team, allowing all of them to play twice for the crowd. This event helps couples decide which DJ's style and sound will match their wedding, but we promise that if you hear all of our talented DJs play, you might have a hard time choosing just one! That's why during Date Night our clients also have a chance to meet our DJs in person, discuss genres, and they can answer all of your questions! It's so difficult planning a wedding not knowing who your vendors are, and first impressions matter. Here at Cage and Aquarium, comfortability, style, and fun is what we strive for. 

Did you miss our last Date Night on March 8, 2018? No worries! We will be hosting another, and another, and another!
