Wedding Tip ~ Outdoor Sound - What You Could Be Missing!
Continuing the trend of outdoor ceremonies, this could be another year in which prospective Bride & Groom's forge their own direction in customized weddings. Having an outdoor ceremony provides a more relaxed setting and circumvents many of the time restraints involved in a church ceremony but still accomplishing some of the religious aspects.
One overlooked part of the outdoor ceremony is the sound.... or lack thereof. Atmosphere Productions Professional Disc Jockey and Reception Entertainment Service http://www.atmosphere-productions.com/whatwedo.html specializes in this, the most important part of your wedding day. Whilst having an outdoor ceremony may be romantic; the fact that your guests did not hear a word of those beautiful vows makes the whole event somewhat lacking.
It is critically important that your outdoor ceremony have reliable sound reinforcement that allows ALL your guests to hear the officiant and the Bride & Groom. Remember, depending on the location, outdoor events are at the mercy of the elements, birds, passing vehicles and a myriad of other distractions.
Atmosphere Productions Professional Disc Jockey and Reception Entertainment Service http://www.atmosphere-productions.com/whatwedo.html recommend that at least a lapel microphone attached to the officiant should be part of any outdoor ceremony system. Preferably, we like to have a wireless microphone for a Reader and for the Groom - BUT we do not force the point, since many Grooms ask us NOT to wire them with a microphone.... it's whatever makes the Bride & Groom comfortable.
Our sound systems set-up includes a speaker, mixing unit, Hard-drive music system with back-up and microphones, all neatly packaged in a discreet roadcase. And discreet is the key word... there is NO need for large two speaker systems on tripods that will undoubtedly distract your guests from what is supposed to be an intimate ceremony. We don't want to be in any of the photographers pictures, so we work on the principal of being "heard, but not seen."
Therefore, if your planning an outdoor Ceremony, with more than 25 guests, we strongly recommend that you NOT depend on a boom box or an iPod... get a professional sound system. It will be a valuable enhancement to your Ceremony that your guests will remember for years to come.
