The Rathman Fairytale Wedding 1/29/2011

Lethal Rhythms would like to say thank you to our newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Brian Rathman! It was such an honor for Lethal Rhythms DJ Mike Beaver and Event Coordinators, Kra Riddell and myself, Deziree Valdez to be a part of their wedding day on January 29, 2011 at the W- Hotel Midtown. Though Kra Riddell has coordinated weddings before, this was my first and it was remarkably beautiful and truly unique!

When I reminisce about the ceremony and reception, I begin to imagine the elegant lighting flowing throughout the gorgeous drapery that flowed over the back wall, provided by Event Drapery. By Tulip Flower Shop’s beautiful bouquets set on pedestals created a stunning visual accent against the white lighted drapery, which perfectly framed both Jennifer and Brian as they said their vows on center stage. Guests then made their way upstairs to the Away Hallway to enjoy delicate hors d’œuvres and a complimentary open bar. As guests mixed and mingled for about an hour, they were then summoned up to the 27th floor Ballroom for one of the most beautiful reception I have seen.

The W-Midtown catering prepared one of the most enticing dinners that pampered guests with choices of salmon, steak, or chicken. After toasts were given, guests flowed on the dance floor to dance the night away with DJ Mike Beaver’s latest beats. One of the unique dances that Mr. and Mrs. Rathman chose to incorporate is known as the “Anniversary Dance”. This is a dance where all couples slow dance to a variety of chosen songs by the bride and groom. As guests dance, the DJ randomly announces numbers; this number indicates the number of years couples have been together. Once a couple’s anniversary is called, they politely leave the dance floor. At the end of the dance, the couple who has been together the longest give words of advice to the newlyweds to take on in their marriage. This was one of the most memorable moments I shared with Jennifer and Brian. As they began to slip away for the evening, they were surrounded by guests saying farewell before they exited through an outdoor elevator just in time to see the captivating city at its brightest. If you aren’t mesmerized yet, the talented Drew Newman with Drew Newman Photography, captured every special moment throughout the night.

In addition to the positive energy that flowed throughout the W- Hotel Midtown, fantastic vendors worked together to create a flawless day! Lethal Rhythms took pride in knowing guests walked away from Jennifer and Brian’s reception with everything from the Rathman’s style, taste, and vision in mind!

If you did not have the pleasure of attending the Rathman’s fairytale wedding, I hope I was able to give you a vivid recap of how perfect and romantic their special day was. Not only did I hear some of the best toasts, but every moment I shared with this wonderful couple and guests showed the dedication and devotion they have and bring together. This was truly a magical night that will be remembered dearly by family and friends alike.

Tracy and Rob- Lethal Rhythms Entertainment
I had the pleasure of working with Joel Rabe of Lethal Rhythms during the wedding of Tracy and Rob. I’ve worked with many djs before but Joel had me at hello…actually, he had me when he absolutely nailed the recessional music exactly the way Tracy requested at the exact moment they were pronounced man and wife {U2’s “Beautiful Day”}

What is the absolute #1 song that gets everyone on the dance floor? No matter what crowd it is?
The truth is, there is no one dynamic for a crowd but you can always fall back on a classic as long as it isn’t overplayed….Michael Jackson is always good but only if thrown in at the right time.
What is your favorite thing about being a dj?

Being able to surprise the dance floor with a unique spur of the moment mix that creates loads of energy and gets them yelling.

How long have you been a dj?
Started before college back in 1995 when turn tables was the only option {he can use 3 turn tables}… {aka professional entertainers…}

What is your favorite part of the wedding besides the dancing?
The fact that there is a real reason to celebrate. The bride and groom are celebrating a new beginning.

How did you get into the wedding industry?

When I first came to Atlanta in 1999 I attended a wedding at the Fox Theatre and at the time I was a professional trainer for djs on a nationwide club circuit and I couldn’t believe how basic the djs were in the Atlanta market at the time. So…I moved to Atlanta…

Top 5 songs to get people dancing:
1. Anything by Lady Gaga
2. Any classic rock and roll {like Journey…”Don’t Stop Believing” but mixed live with current hip hop beats}
3. Ladies love to dance to Top 40 like Ke$ha, Katy Perry
4. Music that takes people back like the 80’s (“Venus” by Banana Rama or the Go-Go’s)
5. Any hip hop tracks with a good beat (and a clean message)

Lethal Rhythms is anxiously awaiting for the fabulous wedding of Deven Sanders and Cliff Trowers; the Atlanta chapter of Wish Upon a Wedding’s first wish couple!  We will be providing ceremony and reception music as this charming couple celebrates their wedding on Thursday, November 4, 2010, at the W Buckhead!

The Wish Upon a Wedding organization is the world’s first nonprofit wish granting organization to provide weddings and vow renewals for couples facing terminal illness and serious life-altering circumstances. This organization takes care of all the details, and is the vision of Liz Guthrie, the Founder and Executive Director of Wish Upon a Wedding, who began the organization in January 2010.

A little about the couple:

Cliff suffers from renal failure, and is on the waiting list for a new kidney at Emory University Hospital.  He receives dialysis treatments three times a week. Deven, his fiancé, is in constant contact with Emory, and keeping track of his health. Cliff said that Deven is the woman who has stuck by his side through it all. Because of his illness, Cliff is unable to work full-time but still handles a job at a restaurant around his dialysis appointments, while Deven works at an advertising agency.

“I want to live a healthy normal life and give my soon to be wife and daughter what they deserve,” Cliff said.

Cliff and Deven received a beautiful engagement session by Janet Howard with Janet Howard Studio. More photos to come of the ceremony that will take place in 2 days!
