It's a blog about a blog!

Hey!  We're famous!!  Skip Kelly Productions was featured on the beautiful wedding style blog, Style Me Pretty today!


Jillian & Christopher got married on October 13, 2012 and their wedding was chosen to be showcased on Style Me Pretty.  They have some terrific photos and video on the page.

I remember the day well.  Jillian was a total sweetheart and had clearly put a LOT of time and effort into planning her wedding.  The site was beautiful and just as I was getting everything set up, it started to rain.  It was just a passing thunderstorm, but it was exactly the wrong timing.  We shuffled things around and it was still a stunning night.  Congratulations to you both on your feature!!  Check out the story here.



Skip Kelly Productions has earned an "excellent" review rating on Google, won the 2012 & 2013 Wedding Wire "Bride's Choice" Award and was voted "Best of Jacksonville" in 2013 & 2012 by the readers of Jacksonville Magazine. This past year, Skip was chosen as the Music Director for Jacksonville Fashion Week, and hosted multiple events for the Belk department stores, Fox 30, Sephora, Massage Envy and CBS47, to name just a few.

Now settled in Jacksonville, FL and married to celebrity makeup artist Paulina Perez, he is bringing his unique, top-level experience to the local entertainment scene. If you are looking for a Jacksonville Wedding DJ, or a DJ for your special event, visit http://skipk.com for more information.

17 Hilarious Wedding Photos

What do I do in my spare time?  I search for goofy wedding stories to share on my blog here for no one to read!  So, while you're not reading, feast your eyes on these wedding pictures from couples who clearly have an overdeveloped sense of humor.



There's really nothing I enjoy more than a non-traditional wedding with a little creativity.  Well, that and really, really good dry-aged steak.  However, since the blog is about weddings...


The original article is from MSN and features all 17 pictures.  I just wanted to share a few of my favorites.


Who doesn't love a good zombie wedding?!


You're welcome.  Feel free to check out the original article with the rest of the shots.

Greek Gas Station Wedding!

I don't know why, but this story just makes me so happy!  A photographer was scouting locations in Greece for a photo shoot when he stumbled upon a wedding in full swing...  at a gas station!



Apparently the happy couple was strapped for cash, so the groom managed to convince his bride to hold their reception at the family gas station!

It's a heartwarming story and the full slideshow of pictures is available on The Huffington Post.  Enjoy!

Divorced Woman Sends Wedding Ring Into Orbit

While I don't usually like to write about divorce (being a wedding dj and all), I had to share this one particular story from Chris Matyszczyk at CNET.

Rebecca Gibbs wanted to make sure that her divorce was final.  Think Taylor Swift and "We are never, ever, EVER getting back together."  So, in order to make sure her ex-husband Stephen Page took the hint, she launched her wedding ring into orbit.  It helps that her new boyfriend's father is an actual rocket scientist.

Gibbs explained, "I just thought that was awesome and it was a really liberating experience for me, and while it was for me, it was also for him, to let him know it was completely over."

Sadly, the video of the launch itself is no longer available on YouTube, but the Gibbs-Page wedding video still is!!  No word on what made the happy couple grow apart.

Enjoy the entire story on CNET here.

"Morning After" Wedding Photos a New Trend!?

Sorry I haven't written anything for a while.  Things have been incredibly busy here at Skip Kelly Productions!  We've brought on a new DJ, Rhyme Jones who is now available for weddings and events.  He's pretty amazing.  He’s a musician and producer who comes from a musical family.  His uncle is in the band UB40, (“Red, Red Wine”)!  He trained with me personally and is the only other DJ I’ve ever felt comfortable hiring to be a part of my company.  I hired him because he's smart, talented and is a "creative type" which fits in well with me.

We've been getting out there with 3 bridal shows and a bridal fashion show all in one month!!  Our new ad is out in Jacksonville Magazine's "BRIDE" and we even had some commercials on the radio!  Needless to say, we've been busy, but...

Have you heard (or considered) this new trend, "Morning After" Wedding Photos!?  I literally just heard about it from "Good Afternoon America" and the Huffington Post.



Couples are inviting their photographer into the bridal suite the morning after their wedding for a "morning after" photo shoot.  The pictures tend to lean towards the steamy side, with the couple in various stages of undress or even the literally steamy with the couple in the shower!



Check out the clip from Good Afternoon America, or read the whole story from the Huffington Post.  I love the idea.  I think it's hot, sexy and really showcases the raw love story of a new marriage.  My wife thinks it's dirty and says she, "doesn't want to have to look at half-naked pictures of her friends on Facebook."  What do you think!?  "Morning After" Wedding Photos, hot trend or tacky twosome?

Skip Kelly Productions featured on The Jacksonville Bride!



Hey!  Skip Kelly Productions was featured (twice) on The Jacksonville Bride this month!


First, you'll want to catch our interview video!  Blog editor Megan Martin sat down in the Skip Kelly Productions studio to discuss what brides should know about meeting and picking a DJ for their wedding.  Even though I'm a total doofus on camera, it's still full of good information!





Second, Kelly & Jason Frotten's wedding from 4/7/12 got featured on the blog as well!  West House Photography took some AMAZING photos that you have to see.  Great work by Makeup by Paulina Perez too.  Of course, Skip Kelly Productions was the DJ, but it's really difficult to take a photo of good music.  ;)


Enjoy!

How to Know If You're Having the Same Wedding as Everyone Else on Pinterest


I completely lifted this entire post from author Natalie Linden off thehairpin.com.  I'm sorry for just copying and pasting the whole thing, but I thought it was too funny not to share.


How to Know If You're Having the Same Wedding as Everyone Else on Pinterest
By Natalie Linden - April 17, 2012



1. Do you find yourself using words like “country,” “DIY,” and “upcycling” when describing your concept?


2. Are you scouting “backyard” locations?


3. Are there Mason jars involved?


4. Will your bridesmaids be wearing cowgirl boots? Feathers? How about the groomsmen — bowties? Suspenders?


5. Are you thinking of succulents, or perhaps air plants, to add sass to your bouquet? 
6. Is your veil attached to a headband?


7. Does this very long wooden table look familiar to you?


8. Are you pinning anything cute to wood piles or tree trunks?


9. Will the guests be sitting on natural materials such as wood planks, upside-down terra cotta pots, or hay bales covered in raw linen?


10. Do arbors figure prominently in your lighting design?


If you answered yes to five or more questions, congratulations! You have great taste, and your nuptials are sure to be awesome.
