Late September Wedding at the Spectacular Belle Mer in Newport, RI


This fall, at one of the most stunning waterfront venues along New England’s East Coast, Belle Mer (run by Longwood Events, the same company that operates one of Boston’s premier venues, the State Room), we provided music and sound services for a beautiful outdoor ceremony on the lawn overlooking the harbor, cocktail hour and reception music and emceeing inside the Water Salon, and lighting to set the mood, for the nupitals of Mr. & Mrs. Pietsch.

From the highly synchronized grand reveal of the Salon (something truly one-of-a-kind), to the evening’s toasts by the room’s impressive fireplace, to the jam-packed dance floor fueled late into the night by 80’s and 90’s classics, top 40 and mashups — we did some overtime, per order of the Father of the Bride, who prefaced that request with “You’re hitting a home run.” — the night was certainly one to remember.

The bride, after reluctantly returning from her honeymoon and back to normal life, had these very kind words and a five-star rating to share on

“John did an unbelievable job at our wedding. He was friendly, easy to work with and very professional. He listened to what we wanted and outperformed our expectations. It’s a month after our wedding, and people are still raving about how great our DJ was. I highly recommend John and will absolutely use him again,” said the bride, who left this review alongside a five-star rating on The Knot’s website.”

Why might Newport make the perfect location to host and celebrate your own wedding? The glistening harbor and breathtaking sunsets certainly go a long way, and folks find a variety of other great reasons, too. (Personally, we love to spend a couple of days down there each summer, enjoying a hot lobster, a cold beer, live acoustic guitar, and a spin around the bay, sitting on the bow of a schooner, shoes off, our toes skimming the waves.)

So if you’re getting married in Newport, RI and need yourself a wedding DJ or other wedding services like uplighting / uplights, photo booth, green screen photos, live music, or something else — please consider us. We’ll do right by you, too!
