Joyful June Wedding at The Boston Store, Erie, PA.
Our Beautiful Couple hosted their June Wedding Reception at the Historic & Beautiful Boston Store in the heart of downtown Erie. Sabella’s Catering provided excellent food and decorating for the event.

We initially were contacted and hired by Hannah’s mom about 10 months before the wedding. We were familiar with the family from our local church. It was an honor to be a part of this day. We talked with couple numerous times via email and text messaging as they began planning their reception. They were able to plan their wedding long distance by using our Interactive Online Planning Forms. Every time they updated the forms we were notified and could go over what they wanted. We also met with them about 3 weeks before the wedding to discuss their timeline for the night. During that meeting, we learned that groom was having some trouble selecting music. We were able to suggest some songs for them and in the end, he trusted us to choose a few ourselves for their special moments. We had everything we needed ready prior to their wedding and were able to send their photographer a copy of the timeline before the wedding took place.
Overcoming the Historic Challenge
The hall itself is definitely a challenge. The Boston Store venue is a long hallway/lobby of a well-known retail store that was once the center of activity in Erie Pennsylvania. There is a locally famous phrase “Meet Me Under the Clock”. People would meet under the beautiful clock in the lobby, which is still there, for lunch and shopping dates. The hall boasts marble floors and pillars, electricity is limited, and the lighting is very low. In order to meet the challenges of this particular hall, you need to have an expert sound engineer controlling the levels of the sound equipment. We also needed extra electrical cords to bring power to our area and the Uplighting was necessary not only for ambiance but also to provide extra lighting for the guests to be comfortable in the venue.
Our Expert DJ/Technician was able to ensure that the sound levels were comfortable for everyone while battling the size, shape and building materials of the room. He was also well prepared for the limited electricity. By doing a walk-through of the hall prior to the wedding reception he was able to decide how much extra electrical cording and what kind to bring along.
As I mentioned before our Brilliant Uplighting was just the touch the hall needed to stay lit and create the ambiance. Our technician used the couple’s colors, Coral & Blue, to create a gorgeous lighting display. A plus side to our Wedding Up-Lighting is that they are wireless and battery operated so power outlets are not an issue.
Choosing The Right Music for Your Wedding Reception
The Bride & Groom also had specific music tastes they wished us to adhere to for their celebration which created just the kind of challenge we like. We had to find music that suited their tastes that the guests would enjoy and would keep the energy in the hall going. We were able to create a playlist of music to fit their needs and keep their guests happy. Erie DJ Entertainment has 24/7 Online planning forms with a playable link to our database of music! We also have a top wedding song lists right on our website.
Planning makes a Perfect Erie Wedding
Two Team Members worked closely with each other and the other vendors, Penny Shaut Photography & Sabella’s Catering to create an amazing Wedding Experience for Ryan & Hannah. Our DJ/Sound & Lighting Technician both created a dazzling light experience for the wedding while our Coordinator used the communication she had with the couple to create a seamless flow of events while working with the other vendors.
The planning process began when we were booked about 10 months prior to the wedding. Day of Service took about 10 hours total including travel, set up, sound checks, performance, and tear down. Additional set up time was required for the unique sound & lighting challenges of the hall.
