Elise Burkhart and Nick Esasky 12/27/2010

Elise Burkhart and Nick Esasky Wedding- Lethal Rhythms

The Monday after Christmas (December 27th) was more than just a Monday off for some, it was the day Elise Burkart and Nick Esasky came together as one. You may be thinking, who gets married on a Monday? But, this past Monday was their 10-year Anniversary, a date that holds a decade of their memories. Elise and Nick wrote their own vows as their dear friend Steve joined their hands in marriage. Elise ended her vows with “You know me, I know you. And the rest of our life…is about to be perfect,” while Nick’s vows ended with “Our love is endless and I will never grow tired of saying…I love you.”  The majority of couples wait to a few years after they are married to share a decade of love, support, and friendship, but Elise and Nick were fortunate to begin their marriage and their walk of life together on the same day they were claimed “girlfriend and boyfriend” 10 years ago. It was amazing to see the love they shared standing on the stage in Opera saying “I Do!”Nick Kissing his bride Elise- Lethal Rhythms

This unique couple didn’t just share their wedding day on a milestone in their relationship; they spent their special day in Opera, an event space during the day/early week, and a club on the weekends. The Opera experience is for the fun, non-traditional, party bride and groom. Nick and Elise really utilized Opera’s capabilities to give their guests an unimaginable reception.

From the cocktail hour outside, in a heated tent, to the interactive food stations opened all night, this reception went from sentimental to monumental. Guests enjoyed specialty cocktails as the bride and groom had everlasting pictures taken by Joseph Hummel. As the guests filtered from the sushi station into the ballroom laid out as a lounge, Lethal Rhythms DJ Joel Rabe had them dancing to all the latest hits! When the bride and groom walked in, guests were moved by their first dance to Dr. Hook “Year’s from now.” Toasts and speeches were open to all guests, and many came to the front to share their story of Nick and Elise’s love. But as the night moved on, so did the guests, they documented their time in the Majestic Photobooth, enjoyed a beyond gorgeous wedding cake, made by Celso’s Cakes. But, as the party went “on and on and on,” it had to come to an end at midnight.

Event coordinator, Kra (Cara) Riddell of Lethal Rhythms lined guests outside Opera along the red carpet and stairs. The guests were “armed” with spray-able snow waiting for the Mr. and Mrs. Esasky to exit into their 1947 Rolls Royce, provided by Atlanta Limousine. As the anticipation of the guests grew, Nick and Elise appeared through the doors and were covered in snow. This winter wonderland wedding, filled with feathers of silver and gold ended with white snow. It was a perfect night for a perfect couple and all captured by Lethal Video.


Here’s what Elise and Nick had to say about Lethal Rhythms:
