Best Engagement Photos

Who determines the Best Engagement Photos? It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. But how many words are there in a picture of true love? a million, ten million? We all have been asking that question for years and don’t think anyone has ever come up with a real answer. The only real answer is all in the eyes of the beholder. Love, and the number of words in the picture of true love is all very personal and unique to the interpreter.
Telling the tale with champagne toasts and kind gestures, hugs and kisses at the alter, and first dance and final songs played at the end of the night only tell part of the story.
But what about where it all begins? How about telling the story from the moment of proposal, through engagement, and just before hitting rose petal carpeted aisle of the chapel? We at Gold Starr Entertainment have come to realize that there is an undeniable way to do just that. Tell your true love story with photos and let your audience’s imagination count the words of what true love looks like to them through your photos.
Plan ahead. Set the stage. Hire a life photographer that will follow your true love story and paint it with spontaneous, beautiful, and heartfelt photos. Share them on a slideshow during your wedding reception or frame them and use them as center piece accents at your guests tables.
Let us know what you think. How many words are there in a picture of true love. Comment below with your true love story and your creative ideas for engagement photos.
Love Your Brides Maid

Love Your Brides Maid

Love Your Brides Maid?

Your wedding day is a day carved out especially for you and your new groom to show the world just how in love you are. The wedding day is such an emotional and tear jerking occasion. Some tears are of joy, some are of sadness, some are of longing for what you have.

For quite some time, I’ve wondered if this lovely day can be any lovelier? If it can be filled with even more love? As a blushing bride, how can we spread the love without raining on our parade of love? And then it came to me! Not out of thin air, but through a video on social media; which is kind of like the same thing; Thin air and Cyberspace?

But anyway! The answer came to me when I saw this video and about fell out on the floor crying. It was the most amazing show of love I had seen at a wedding yet.

Here’s how it went. The wedding happened. All the love and cheers for the bride and groom had filled the day. And then came the time for the bouquet toss. A group of the hopeful ladies crowded onto the dance floor behind the bride. There was about 30 women on that dance floor, but there was one very special one there in particular, The Maid of Honor, who had been longing to get married to her longtime boyfriend. The bride proceeded to pretend to fling the bouquet over her shoulder but did the old bait and switch.

She turned and handed the beautiful bouquet directly to her Maid of Honor, who needless to say, found this to be a great surprise. A moment later, the Maid of Honor’s longtime boyfriend dropped down on bended knee and proposed to her right then and there on the dance floor! The Maid of Honor screeched and cried yes, yes, yes!surprise-proposal

The crowd burst into cheers and I burst into tears, as will your beloved Brides Maid or Maid of Honor should you decide to show this much love at your wedding. I must say this was a great one, and you know what? This idea doesn’t only go for the ladies, it works perfectly with the fellas too. So give it a try, you will certainly change someone’s life! Take a look for yourself, Surprise Proposal.

Cutest Ring Bearer Ever!

Cutest Ring Bearer Ever!

The Cutest Ring Bearer Ever!

Boy oh boy! What a difficult choice. With so many cute little boys in your family, how do you pick just one? There is your little brother, your little nephews, your tiny twin cousins, what a sticky spot you’re in! At Gold Starr we say think out of the old ring-box and get creative.

Yes, we realize that there is only one ring box but that doesn’t mean you have to have only one bearer participant.

Here’s the plan!

Pick the most responsible 3 year old you can find and then surround him with a few “Bearer Body Guards”. Not only will you spread the love amongst the little hero’s in your family, but your wedding guests will absolutely love the sight of this! There is nothing cuter than “A Ring Bearer Secret Service” strutting down the aisle carrying the precious stones needing to make a safe and lifelong landing to your fingers, so make it count!

Give us your thoughts on this plan and send us some pics of your Ring Bearer Secret Service!

Photo Booth Fun

Photo Booth Fun

Photo Booth Fun! Here comes the bride all dressed in white… This sounds like a scratched record! If you think that sounds boring, imagine the old black suit and tie photographers kneeling as he takes a few very expensive photos of all of your wedding guests.

Think about it, you spend a bounty on a photographer who runs around in circles trying his damdest to capture candid and off guard shots of all of your wedding guests. People eating, dancing, chatting, and walking around. The worst part of this is that these candid shots mean absolutely nothing to your wedding guests because most of your guest will never see them.

Thankfully you and millions of other wedding folks are the wiser. Not only are you reserving Mr. Pro Photographer for capturing your exclusive wedding shots, but you are having fun grabbing these photos without him!

Photo Booth Magic!

Photo booths are the biggest synonym with wedding fun and the best part is that these pics are shared instantly because they are printed or emailed minutes after the shot is taken! Your guests can express themselves with funny hats, crowns, huge moustaches, playing a banjo, or wearing beads!  This is not only so much more fun than the unflattering, unfunny, and unshared photos grabbed by the pro photographer but it is hugely more economical.
One of the most popular things that couples are doing is having a themed wedding and a themed photo booth to match. Imagine for a moment. $1000 for pro shots wasted on candid shots or a few hundred well spent that also double as momentous for your guest to take home with them on that very same night. I think the few hundred makes a whole lot of sense.
Top 10 Wedding Reception Songs 2016

Top 10 Wedding Reception Songs 2016

Top 10 Wedding Reception Songs 2016

2106 was a huge year for some of the greatest songs of all time. Songs with light, heavy, fun, sexy, and spunky themes. The reception dinner songs have remained pretty much the same year after year – Frank Sinatra, Lionel Richie, Celine Dion- but the after dinner songs are ever changing and moving to new tunes. Yes there will always be the infamous Y.M.C.A by the Village People and Material Girl by Madonna as “all crowd” entertainment but luckily for us we get to experience spinning what’s considered current and representative of the now! But is it really?

Here are the top 10 wedding reception songs of 2016:

  1. Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars  – Uptown Funk
  2. Journey  – Don’t Stop Believing
  3. Whitney Houston – I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who loves Me)
  4. Walk the Moon – Shut Up and Dance
  5. Taylor Swift – Shake It Off
  6. Pharrell Williams – Happy
  7. Neil Diamond – Sweet Caroline
  8. Cupid- Cupid Shuffle
  9. Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud
  10. Black Eye Peas – I Gotta Feeling

As you can see, the most loved songs were not all created in 2016. Now we enter the wedding season for 2017 and can only wonder how many of these hits will find themselves on the most requested list. At Gold Starr Entertainment we are curious about your thought. Be a DJ for now and comment below. Which songs from the 2016 list will make it onto the 2017 most loved songs.

The Wedding Kiss

The Wedding Kiss

The Wedding Kiss

Your first kiss as husband and wife may be the most important public kiss of your life. Hundreds of people, scores of photographer and the eyes of history may be upon you at that very moment. But there’s no need to worry or lose your nerve. To kill your jitters, take a quick look at the crowd, then kiss with these pointers in mind.

  • Don’t be afraid to lean her back Hollywood Style.
  • Women, lean back like Scarlett O’Hara for a full photo with photographers in mind
  • Choose the location for the first kiss beforehand.
  • Make it a kiss for you and the guests who are watching.

The kiss should last a long time so that you give the photographers a chance to check the exposure and then click away. Meanwhile you’re kissing away. But keep in mind that this is not the time for French kissing. Number one it doesn’t show up on film and secondly there isn’t enough time to get warmed up for a French kiss.

At Gold Starr Entertainment we always suggest selecting an interesting setting and arranging a romantic place that you will remember for years to come. Be sure to have a professional photographer there to capture the moment. Lastly, when you place this kiss, make it a long and soulful kiss that expresses all your deep feelings for one anther. Use the photo of this kiss as a yardstick to measure all subsequent kisses between you and your love.

Now the young, middle aged and old can rock out together in the same room! With the latest craze in Silent Disco parties, Gold Starr Entertainment is one of the first to embark on this phenomenon.

When you want to say something to your friend without yelling over booming music filling the room, you can do it by simply lifting your headphones and speaking in a normal tone.

Here’s how it works. There up to 3 live DJ’s in the room, all playing a different genere of music, you are wearing Bluetooth neon lit headphones with various channels each dedicated to an individual DJ. When you want to switch from the DJ playing EDM its as simple as pushing a button on your headphone, when you are ready to switch back, it is as easy as pushing another button.

The Best Wedding DJs in Southern California

The Best Wedding DJs in Southern California

Best Wedding DJs!

Not only does Gold Starr Entertainment have the best Wedding DJs in Southern California, but many have said that we have the best DJs in California! Often times we encounter couples who have no idea what a real wedding DJ is and finding themselves confused or near hiring an ordinary DJ. Because so many are under the impression of there being no difference between the ordinary and extraordinary we are here to educate you. There is absolutely a huge difference between an ordinary DJ and an extraordinary Wedding DJ.

Ordinary DJ

The ordinary DJ is a guy or gal who shows up ready to play a recycled and prerecorded playlist where they may insert a tune or two upon a special request during your wedding reception. Transition, Tempo and Excitement is key! The extraordinary Wedding DJ is quite the opposite. Unlike the ordinary, your wedding DJ will prepare a custom reception playlist based upon your unique playlist with a live set complete with professional moments of master of ceremony excitement.

Your extraordinary Wedding DJ is so very important to the successful functionality of your wedding and reception because he or she is actually the lead taker and dictator of the smoothness of your wedding and reception. A professional and seamless wedding and reception is what every couple deserves, so do yourself a huge favor; instead of saving a few dollars by booking an ordinary DJ. Save yourself a huge amount of disappointment and stress which is priceless for your special day. By spending your money wisely and book one of our extraordinary best wedding DJs who is also a Master of Ceremony you will experience a magical and whimsical wedding and reception of your dreams!
