About Applause Productions


Started in 1994 with a Father and Son building their own sound and lighting set up, Applause Productions has served the St. Louis wedding market with the quality, value, and hospitality that can only be found in a family business.

In our mind, there is no better place for our unique skills and talents than weddings. We’ve had the amazing opportunity to hone those skills over the past 20 years, and now to pass them along to our new team members.  It’s very exciting and we can’t wait to share them with you!  But what can you expect when you work with Applause? Here are a few pillars of our company:

Be flexible, but be honest

We want to hear your ideas and plans for your event and we will do everything we can to help you achieve them, but we won’t make promises we can’t keep.

Go above and beyond

Being a service provider means we are there to serve. We want to do that in any way we can, and exceed your expectations.

Smooth the way

The responsibility of servicing your once-in-a-lifetime event is not to something we take lightly. Redundancy in our equipment and staff, extensive staff training, hands on owners, all means you can trust that things will go smoothly.

About the Founders, John and Amanda Potter


We live and breathe weddings.

From transforming our part time business into a full time job with part time associates, to constantly learning new skills and following wedding trends, around our house it’s #weddinglife all the time, and we like it that way!

Now that’s not to say we don’t have family and friends in our lives, we most certainly do all sorts of non-wedding things. We enjoy St. Louis Style Pizza and BBQ, nerdy stuff like Comic-Con, Harry Potter, and the latest Star Wars releases, video gaming, and all sorts of travel adventures.

We’d love to work with you at your wedding or next event! Contact us to get started.
