Bashir & Tracy El-Khoury

Bashir El-Khoury and Tracy Broadley were married on July 22nd, 2011 and had their reception celebration in the Capitol View Room at the top of the Hyatt Regency in Sacramento, one of the most stunning views in the area.

Tracy is a nurse and Bashir is a flight surgeon serving in the United States Air Force and assistant at Dr. Sandro LaRocca clinic. His family is Lebanese and some, including his parents, traveled all the way from Lebanon for their big day.

Bashir & Tracy attended a wedding at which we performed back on May 28th, 2011 for Nolan & Jessica Umana, who had discovered Premier Entertainment at the wedding of Cory & Lauren Kleinfeldt on August 1, 2009…

This was a great celebration, truly taking into account the unique desires of this great couple. From Lebanese dancing to Tracy’s beautiful piano performance of a Liszt piece to hilarious wedding party introductions and insanely funny toasts, a very entertaining video montage created by Premier Entertainment and Tracy even opening with a quick welcoming in Arabic, this reception was an international celebration of epic proportions. Below are highlights of the reception, along with their video montage. The music for Bashir’s portion of the video fired up their guests and really helped set the tone for the celebration.

Thanks for letting us be a part of this great day!

Marc & Alex Johnston – Grand Island Mansion

We’ve performed at more than 25 weddings at the Grand Island Mansion over the years, so I thought I knew the place pretty well, but they’ve undergone a major renovation since I was last there.  It was exciting to see such a historic and awesome place made even more spectacular.  Now being managed by Rick Francis, with whom I’ve had the priviledge of serving on the board of the Association of Wedding Professionals, International, this venue is spectacular!

So with a very fun couple, a spectacular, well-managed venue and *ahem* an outstanding entertainment company, this was destined to be an epic celebration!  Marc Johnston, an officer for the California Highway Patrol and Alex Wawrzynski, a firefighter for the Novato Fire District were married on November 18th, 2011 in the ballroom and then moved with their guests to the main dining area for a great dinner, a fun coloring contest for the kids (and more than a few adults) and their funny and romantic Love Story.  Afterwards, it was back into the ballroom for dancing, and Marc & Alex dazzled everyone with their choreographed first dance, before everyone cut loose in celebration.

It’s always to honor to serve those who serve us, and since Marc and Alex are both community servants working in heroic professions, literally putting their lives on the line for all of us, this was an especially rewarding celebration for us.  We added some nice uplighting in the main dining room as well as in the ballroom and enjoyed the very personal approach they took, including a more low key introduction of their wedding party, which they each delivered sincerely.

Marc & Alex, thanks for your service to community, congratulations on your marriage and thank you for including Premier Entertainment & Video!
