The Riverview Simsbury Wedding – CT Wedding Venue

  |   Wedding & Event Lighting Ideas, Wedding Venues

The Riverview Simsbury Wedding: Having your wedding reception at The Riverview in Simsbury CT? It is a beautiful wedding venue located along the river in Simsbury CT. There are a couple of things that you do need to be aware of before hiring your wedding DJ for The Riverview. Like many wedding venues in CT, the acoustics there are TERRIBLE. The arched ceilings are a dead giveaway to this acoustic issue. A traditional wedding DJ sets up 2 speakers flanking their DJ setup, the problem is – NO ONE WILL BE ABLE TO HEAR announcements or toasts like this. There is way too much echo/reverb in this cavernous space.

You need to know acoustics and set up more than 2 speakers in a unique layout to guarantee that people can hear what is going on over the microphone. Without this experience – your guests won’t really hear toasts or introductions. We even have special near-field DJ speakers to help mitigate the acoustic issues at The Riverview (and their sister facility – The Waterview). Similar acoustic issues can be found at Aria and The Goodwin Hotel – other CT Area Wedding Venues.



Wedding DJ With Uplighting

The second issue – their built-in uplighting system: Their lights are arranged to light up the WINDOWS. All of the images below of event lighting at The Riverview are our uplighting set on the COLUMNS of the venue (where they should be located). This also allows us to light The Riverview during the day for daytime weddings.

Uplighting can make your wedding photos amazing. They also can enhance your wedding decor to help match your wedding color scheme. Our wireless LED lights can be dialed into an array of colors to make your wedding backdrop amazing.

What Will Lighting Do For My Wedding? Your Pinterest inspiration starts here. What style of lighting is best for my venue? How much does lighting cost and is it worth it? Can I just DIY my own lighting? There are so many questions to be asked when planning your wedding.

“Rob was able to set the perfect tone of our wedding through music.
The lighting and music were perfect. Rob helped make our day look and sound just the way we wanted. He was professional and kept everything moving on time and in a seamless fashion.”

Danielle – The Riverview, Simsbury CT

Amazing! 5 stars!
“We had the most incredible experience working with Rob and were lucky enough to have Jim as our wedding DJ. Jim was so thorough and easy to work with. He even was able to edit our music for ceremony and a special performance by our friend. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the technicalities, did a rehearsal with our musical performance and made sure to play all of the songs we wanted to hear. I highly recommend their services!”

” Rob was great! We chose DJ Rob Alberti for our wedding based on a recommendation from our wedding venue. He was very responsive during the planning process and very organized. He executed our unique wedding party script perfectly and got everyone going on the dance floor! We wish we could have had the music playing all night. He was definitely a big part of our perfect wedding day.”

Hear What Your Riverview Wedding Might Sound Like With Our Simsbury CT Wedding DJs

Afraid no one will dance at your wedding? Or that your wedding will be AVERAGE?

Whether you are a foodie, hipster couple or off-beat-bride – dancing is so important to you and you want your wedding to be a unique reflection of your personalities.

See what our past clients have to say: “Worth every penny spent!! Our guests had a blast!!! Rob kept the music flowing from one song to another” So many couples are afraid no one will dance at their wedding. We want you and your guests to be up and dancing – not sitting and being bored.

You will get guaranteed more dance time with one of our DJs. I am going to make sure everything we do and play reflects your personality and not some canned DJ routine (ie – chicken dance). You are going to have an amazing time, no cheesy DJ antics here.

Typically we will have a clip-on mic on one of you to pick up your voices. We’ll have a 2nd wireless mic for your officiate and a 3rd microphone on a stand for any readers.
