The Importance of Lighting Your Event Space I know what you’re thinking: “as if I need another thing on my to-do list,” right?

The Evolution of the Ceremony Song by  Lou Lanza On the many recent ceremonies that I have been a part of as a vocalist, musician, or as a coordinator the most striking trend I have noticed is the variety of styles and selections. Naturally, the evergreen type of selections have still been popular.
