The Sound of Music... and Voice at your Wedding Ceremony
Music and Voice to Move Mountains
Audio entails music and voice, an officiant reciting your vows, reading personally prepared vows, a family member presenting a poem, music for the processional, signing of the register and recessional. Maybe pre ceremony music to set the mood before your ceremony begins.
Ambient noise can rob your guests of what’s being said, or maybe a reader is soft spoken and not accustomed to speaking before a large gathering. For the officiant, a mic allows for vocal inflections and tonal gesturing. Imagine your officiant SPEAKING LOUDILY SO EVERYONE CAN HEAR… NOT VERY ROMANTIC, nor moving.
The Importance of Sound… Before the Dance!
When I first started as a mobile disc jockey, I researched the type of equipment I would require. Included of course were two speakers to pump out the dance music. In my mind’s eye I saw two speakers on either side of the DJ table.
And so it was that I, as do many, followed the “two speakers beside the dj table” configuration. This worked for a while... until I recognized with a large room and a 100+ guests, two speakers on either side of the dj table was falling short on a few fronts…. I could offer better, thus ensuring my clients got what they really needed.
