From the rustic venue to the sweet story of love at first sight, we loved working with our recent couple Jake and Catie at The Barn at Lone Eagle Landing. We asked them a few questions after the big day, here is what they had to say:
Q: Tell us the story of how you fell in love?
A: WELL.... Catie came to Missouri to visit her sister who had moved here with her now Husband. The first night, her sister and brother in law invited Jake & Kyle over (they were actually intending for Catie & Kyle to hit it off)- However, Catie's eyes were only on Jake. Kyle and Jake got a firecall and sped off in Jake's truck. Catie's brother in law was a police officer in that town at the time, so Catie hopped in and rode to the car accident scene. Once on the scene, Catie stayed in the police car. While sitting in the car some good looking fireman came walking up to the fire truck parked right behind where Catie was. Jake and Catie's eyes latched- Jake had the most flattering smirk upon his face- it was like time stood still- and that is where love at first site began.... The rest is all history.....
Q: How did Jake Propose?
A: We were in Florida for Catie's youngest brothers high school graduation- We planned a "photo shoot" with her sister and brother and nephew, etc. to trick Catie- Upon arrival to the beach (where Catie has gone her entire life to lay out, at the end of her grandparents street) no one was around and Jake got down on his knee with a shell made heart by Catie brother- her sister and brother were hiding in the bushes taking pictures of it
Q: Where was the dress purchased from?
A: It was an Essense of Australia dress from The Bridal Shoppe in Festus.
Q: Grooms Suit?
A: Men's Wearhouse.
Q: What were your centerpieces like?
A: We had a rustic theme, centerpieces sat on top of wood pieces. Each had a hand painted mason jar with flowers inside, a table number in a gold frame, spray painted tea light candle and a small glass mason jar with a tea light candle inside.
Q: Who made the cake and catered?
A: Jennifer Francis made the cake and it was tiered with three different flavors; carrot cake, white chocolate with raspberry mousse, and marble with salted caramel filling. Our caterer was Bowtie Catering- tasted them at a prior wedding and everyone remembers the food!
Applause Weddings is so much more than just a DJ service. With a Round of Applause package we also include videography, photobooth, uplighting, and a custom monogram. With such a great bundle deal, our goal is simplify the planning process for you as well as we can!
Dakota and Heather may have known each other since High School, but it wasn't until later that their love story began. We asked them to answer a few questions about how they met and how they planned their wedding, and we wanted to share them with you here on the blog.
Q: Tell us the story of how you fell in love
A:Me and Dakota went to school together. I had always known who he was but never really talked to him. A lot of my friends were friends with him and we eventually hung out randomly once with our mutual friend Joey at the Arnold Days carnival. It was Sophomore year of High School. After that time of hanging out we started to talk more and he became my "husband". That was my nickname for him. We used to pass notes back and forth through our friend Sara because she had classes with the both of us and eventually we just hung out more and more and then we started dating. It was Sophomore year into the summer. We were both immature back then so it didn't work out, but we still talked and sometimes hung out after that until we both got into other relationships. Until, the last day of Senior Year. We hadn't spoke for probably a year or so, until that day. He showed up to ride in the senior parade with us, which completely shocked me but all of our friends were mutual friends, so it made sense. Things got a bit crazy that day, but it brought us back together and we have been going strong for almost 8 years now. 8 years will be the day before the wedding.
Q: What are each of your careers?
A: We both work for our family businesses. I work for my dad at JH Exteriors. I run the office and a dozen other hats! Dakota works for his dad, installing & refinishing hard wood floors at Jerry's Fine Hardwood Flooring and Restoration.
Q: Tell us about the Proposal and how long was your engagement?
A: Every year on Christmas Eve we go to Dakota's Grandma’s house with the rest of his family and after we have dinner we go downstairs to open presents and then play games. We had just finished opening presents and someone said "is that all of them" so Dakota gets up and walks over to the tree and says, no I think there's one more. Well I of course, wasn't paying any attention, I was talking to his cousin and next thing I know, he's down on one knee in front of me asking me to marry him. The only people that knew what was going on was his mom & step dad & his sister because she was recording it. I was in complete shock, was not expecting it at all. I of course, said YES! It was the best present I've ever received and I know it meant so much for him to do it in the basement that he has spent so many of his Christmases with his family. It was perfect! Our engagement was a year and a half.
Q: Please provide a list of vendors and why you chose them?
A: Applause Productions - I chose them because they have nothing but raving reviews from so many others who have used them and I didn't want to hire a company that I felt like I needed to babysit or had to worry about. The work they do is amazing and it shows how much passion they have for what they do. The package prices were so reasonable and really made it a non-question.
Graze Catering - Graze was the second food vendor that I had tried and boy am I so happy I chose to go with them. There food was absolutely delicious and the cost was exactly where I needed it to be. I was happy to spend the extra couple of dollars per person to get the communication I get with Amelia, and the food itself is worth it. I love supporting small business owners.
Pie is Art - I first tried their pies at one of Haue Valley's open houses and I knew from the get-go I didn't want just cake at my wedding. So I set up a meeting with them to try some specific pies and my oh my, Cindy blew me out of the water. The pies are absolutely delicious and the little details she puts in them is really so perfect.
Kris Bokal- I met Kris when she was doing the flowers for my friend’s wedding and I always told myself when I got married that I would want her to do mine. She only does it for friends and family now, but she worked at Walter Knoll's for a very long time. She took the pictures I showed of ideas and ran with it and added to it and made them 10x better than I would have ever been able to imagine. She truly is amazing and is so sweet. I wouldn't have wanted to work with anyone else. She took my stress of picking out flowers away!
Cake House Design - I met with them to just get a very simple cake for us to cut. I got a cake there for my mom’s birthday and had so many compliments on it and I knew they would make me a perfect simple cake. They were so easy to communicate with and sit down with and just amazing at what they do. I've heard nothing but amazing things about them!
Q: Tell Us about your Style
A: My overall colors are Light Grey, Lavender and lilac. I have 3 different center piece designs. The first one is just a large milk jug with greenery falling out and a candle lit on a vintage mirror. Simple yet beautiful.
The second table design is square terrariums. There will be two black terrariums one large and one small. The small will give it the natural feel with the moss and succulents. Then the large one will have greenery and a candle inside with silver and gold mercury candle holders to tie it all together.
The third table theme is a large gold terrarium with a candle inside and greenery wrapped around it. With gold and silver mercury candle holders to tie it all together and match the other table theme.
Q: What About the Rings?
A: My ring is a pear cut style. It has channeled diamonds on each side and then my band is a channeled diamond to match. Dakota's ring is a basic black ring, Tungsten because he is allergic to nickel and will not be wearing it for work so we wanted a cheaper alternative. The brand is actually "Duke Collections" on Amazon.
Q: Your favorite wedding planning tip or advice for those still in the planning process:
A: Let people help you. If your anything like me, you're stubborn and independent and feel that it would be faster for you to just do something rather than ask for the help and push it off to someone else, but I promise you, it's not worth the stress. Let your bridesmaids help as much as possible. I also really wish I would have chosen to get a wedding planner for the day of because it's a lot of stress to plan everything out when you've never done it before.
Love always finds a way and that is exactly what happened for Heather and Dakota. We couldn’t be happier to have been a part of their wedding story.
If you haven't heard of "The Labyrinth", it's a cult classic movie that Natasha has loved since childhood. But before the wedding could be planned, there had to be a couple in love. It all came down to a successful blind date for Brad and Natasha. They were “set-up” by his sister in law, who also happened to be Natasha’s coworker. The first date was spent with dinner and a movie, and they enjoyed each other’s company so much, they just kept seeing each other! They discovered they love to see, do, and eat new things together. Natasha says she loves Brad’s sense of humor and soft side, and he loves her cooking and her “strong will” : )
We asked them to describe their engagement and wedding planning process, and here is what they shared with us:
Q: Tell us about the proposal:
A: He asked me alone at the Christmas tree in his home town Ste. Genevieve. We were engaged for a year before finding the perfect place and had to wait two years for our date to be available.
Q: Vendor Love?
Haue Valley- we just fell in love with the place!
Applause Weddings – we liked everything they offered for one price, and they were very familiar with our venue.
Arnold Florist- More than helpful and good prices!
Art by Trish- these were the cutest sugar cookies!
T’s Liquor Lane - You gotta have to have booze!
Two Mikes Catering - We liked the choices and the food was great!
Q: What keywords would you use to describe the overall style/theme of your wedding?
A: Labyrinth themed/Masquerade
Q: What’s Your Style?
A: We planned a Labyrinth/Masquerade themed wedding. The colors included white, ivory, gold, brown, & light pink. Décor was masks, pearls, clocks, crystal balls, moss rocks, white feathers, flowers and peaches.
They say you fall in love with the most unexpected person at the most unexpected time. Brad and Natasha, thanks for sharing all those details with us!
Kevin and Hannah both were working all day over the summer of 2016, which left them with not much time at all to hit the town and meet people. So they turned to a dating app just to see what was going on. Hannah was not completely committed to meeting anyone, but was only casually seeing who might be out there. Kevin, on the other hand was looking for someone to start a friendship that could blossom into a relationship. Kevin was the first to send a message and figured a cheesy pickup line would be a perfect first message. "Is your hand heavy? I can hold it for you!" When Hannah first saw the message she thought it was too cheesy and didn't respond. Until a few nights later, while Hannah was bored, she decided to respond. The two clicked instantly. After a couple weeks of chatting the two decided to meet in person. Kevin planned the date. The plan was to meet for an afternoon visit to The City Museum followed by a late lunch at Charlie Gitto's Italian Restaurant. While on the date, the two were having such a good time, that by the end, they were not ready for the date to end. The two decided to catch a movie, the remake of Ghost Busters. When the movie ended, the date was topped off with a kiss. After that the two continued dating.
On May 4th, 2017, Kevin took Hannah for a fancy dinner at Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant. During the dinner Kevin was all nervous and fidgety, until dessert was served. That's when Kevin got down on one knee and asked for Hannah's hand in marriage. With tears welling in her eyes, Hannah said yes! . #SMITTENFORSWENSON
What does Kevin love about Hannah? Her personality, she is bright and bubbly. It makes Kevin feel like no matter what he is going through Hannah will cheer him up. Kevin also loves that he can talk about anything Hannah. His other favorites are she is funny, they can be a team during the tough times and the good times and he likes that she makes him a better person.
What does Hannah Love about Kevin? Kevin knows exactly what to do when is not at 100%, whether it is making a silly face, and a bunch of hugs and kisses he knows how to turn that frown upside down. She loves that no matter how hard times get she doesn't have to go through it alone. Her other favorite things are that she will always have her best friend and partner in crime by her side to enjoy and celebrate life together.
What about he Proposal? Hannah is not one for surprises so she went with Kevin to the ring store to look at engagement fingers. They both fell in love with one and knew that they wanted to wait to make it official. They bought the ring in February 2017, got engaged May 4th 2017. Kevin made a hint at Hannah to have nails done by the end of the week. He also told her that they were going to dinner at Cooper's Hawk. Once they sat down and were enjoying themselves Kevin became fidgety and Hannah knew exactly what was going to happen. Kevin got down one knee in front of everyone and asked Hannah to spend the rest of her life with him. Happy tears started as everyone started cheering. It was a fun and special moment for the both of them.
Every wedding has its own special and unique touches to it that make it memorable. Hannah and Kevin’s day was nothing short of that. With Ceremony and Reception both being held at St. Louis Union Station, their colors included shades of pinks, purples, shades of orange, green. The theme was really fun and colorful, very summery feeling, with accents of watercolor brushstrokes in unexpected places.
High School Sweethearts Katie and Tristan met in algebra class during their junior year. He was the new kid in town, but they got to know each other by having mutual friends. After going out on a couple of ice cream and Cardinals game dates, they officially became "boyfriend and girlfriend" June 5th, 2013.
Katie remembers their first date like this, “Our first date was sort of a hot mess. We were at a Cardinals game with Tristan's family when we had a tornado warning. Because of that the game was cancelled, and we had an hour drive home in the pouring rain. To top that off one of our head lights went out on the way home! Since then, we have graduated high school and college together, gone on multiple trips and just enjoy each other's company. I love Tristan for so many different reasons. Since the beginning Tristan has always made me laugh and brought joy to my life. Tristan is hard working, dedicated, and motivated to provide a good life for the two of us. My favorite thing we share with each other is our strange sense of humor. It's like we have our own dialogue with each other.”
Tristan also told us a little about Katie. He says, “My favorite things about Katie is that she is a good cook, she is BEAUTIFUL inside and out, she likes Disney, she is super smart, she enjoys watching movies with me, she has a very soft heart for others in need, she spends her days not only caring for me but for complete strangers, she is going to be a great mom and that she loves me for me, even if I am giving her a hard time.
Q: Tell us about the proposal:
A: We went on a family trip to Disney World during spring break of 2017. We had a grand total of 11 people on the trip! We went for a week and at the very end of the trip, Tristan surprised me with a carriage ride at Fort Wilderness. Little did I know, he had an entire proposal planned. Tristan and I took the carriage ride and towards the end we stopped at a little beach and we got out to explore a little. Once we reached the beach, he gave me a present to open, which ended up being a small glass slipper with the date and the quote "Happily Ever After" inscribed on it. He then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! This proposal was special because we able to share this intimate moment just between the two of us, but able to head back to Magic Kingdom to meet our family and have a celebration at a character dinner! The rest is history.
Q: Who were your favorite vendors and why did you choose them?
A: Venue: Haue Valley
Photographer: Elizabeth Lloyd
Caterer: Two Mikes Catering
Florist: Always in Bloom
DJ/Videography/Photobooth: Applause Weddings
Bar Service: T's Liquor Lane
While we were looking for vendors, we relied on Haue Valley’s advice for a lot of things! We went with most of their recommended vendors. Tristan and I like to keep things simple and easy, but we live an hour and a half away from the venue so we needed flexible vendors! Characteristics like flexibility, affordability, experience, values and recommendations all came into play when searching for vendors.
Q: Tell Us about your Style:
A: Our colors are burgundy, and navy, with some hints or gray and blush! We love the rustic feeling, so our centerpieces all contain some wood aspect. Like I said before we like to keep things simple, which I think reflects in our overall theme. Our centerpieces are a wooden slab base, with greenery, small candles and a lantern. Our Bridesmaids gowns are very similar to my own. Lots of lace overlay, and similar shape. The color is a deep wine/burgundy color with an open back! The Grooms attire is a Michael Kors fitted deep navy tux. The groom is wearing a gray vest under his jacket, with a burgundy floral tie that match the bridesmaids gown. The groom is also sporting a navy watch on his wrist
Even though the first date may have been a little rough, Katie and Tristan wound up with a fairy tale romance. Thanks for sharing your story with us!
In case you didn't know, we are still a small family owned and operated business. We do have a small team of associates that have come on-board, and we try hard to make them feel like family too! I'll start by explaining a briefly about how Applause even started. It actually began in 1993 with John and his Father, Tom. They attended a wedding with what they say was a "less than stellar" DJ and Tom looked across the table to John and said, "I bet we could do this...." John liked the idea and Tom got to work building the first DJ set up. Now there are a lot more details to follow, but that's where it all began. Just a father and son willing to work together to build something from the ground up. But when did Amanda come into the picture? Here's a picture from November 1994, just about 6 weeks after John and Amanda started dating!
Some would call it fate, or destiny. We believe it was truly God's blessing that John and Amanda met in 1994, just after High School graduation. After just a few dates she was invited to her first DJ gig - a wedding in our hometown, Arnold MO. She thought the whole thing was quite interesting and was amazed at John's talent. In a short time, it was obvious to anyone near them that they were desperately in love. Amanda looked as she was around to stay. She was asked if she would like to try out the position of "DJ Assistant". This was a job title previously held by John's older sister who was more than ready to hand it off to someone else LOL What exactly was the job of DJ Assistant? Firstly, she had to meet the wedding party when they arrived to the venue, greet them, and begin to line them up for the Grand Entry, making sure they were in the exact order as listed on the DJ script. After the formalities, she would attend to the head table making sure they had their toast poured and then give the microphone and instruction on how to hold it, etc. to the toast givers. Later, when dancing started, it was her job to pull CD's for whatever song John said would be coming up and put away CD's that he was finished with. YES - CD'S!! Can you believe she is that old? Me either.
So, when did videography begin? It honestly was Tom's idea. He was interested in video and thought that wedding receptions were a great product to offer to our clients. Which, by the way were not Applause clients back then...because we used to be called Audio Image (check out the cool sign in these photos!). The video of the reception was included in every DJ booking. These videos were not digital, so all the editing was quite different. They also had to shoot with just one camera and the idea was to do as much "in-camera" editing as possible. This meant being very deliberate with your shots. Eventually Tom trained both John and Amanda on shooting Video and they continued this for several years before John jumped into the digital editing world. This is when we finally began selling videography for both the Ceremony and Reception.
You may not have known that we used to be called something different. Back in the day we were called Audio Image DJ. But with the addition of Videography, and honestly, the fact that Audio Image can be a bit of a tongue twister, we decided a new name was in order. Also, it was around this time that Tom decided to retire from being a wedding "front man". His new role would be as our Equipment Manager and overall support system (love you, Tom). Applause Productions is still the official registered name of the business but since Weddings have always been our specialty (plus SEO likes keywords) we went with Applause Weddings for a lot of our branding. Either way, most people just refer to us as "Applause" and honestly, we're cool with that!
So, through the years things have continued to grow and change. Here's a photo of John's snazzy DJ tuxedo vest and bowtie, and one of a very tiny Abby "helping" dad on the computer. You can now see that darling girl all grown up and working here in the office as well as shooting in the field. And of course, their 2nd daughter, Emma, being a little sassy pants that she is while she and Abby had a chance to hang with dad once on a DJ gig! Emma is still too young to help at weddings, but sometimes she gets invited anyway, or she gets to tag along on other events (that girl can carry equipment as well as some of the DJs!) From the time we began all the way through until today we have never stopped learning, changing, and growing. We've spent years working weekends and being a "wedding warrior" is definitely a different lifestyle, but one that we have embraced as a whole family. About 8 years ago, John and Amanda made the choice to homeschool their girls. It has been one of the best decisions they could have ever made. With all the time they spent working on the weekends, and with John having a full-time day job, it has allowed them to be more a part of their daughters lives through the week and in the off-season when John gets to be home with us more.
There are a lot of wedding videography companies all around St. Louis who are selling wedding films, wedding highlights, wedding videos: a lot of different names for the same thing. Usually the package is some sort of 4 - 6 minute compilation of clips taken throughout the day, set to music. Sometimes you'll hear vows, toasts, or other audio from the day, sometimes not.
So with all the choices available in our area, how do you pick just the right person to film your wedding? How do you know that Applause is the right wedding videographer for you?
We think we are the right choice for wedding videography because we have done a lot of background work to ensure our reliability and deliverability. But does that really matter to you as the Bride or Groom? Regardless of the gear, the experience, or the price tag, the final product is what you want to fall in love with before you hire a wedding videographer.
In this post, I'm going to share a few films that showcase the style of wedding video we produce. The care taken to edit your film into a beautiful love story is what really makes the difference. Editing to the music, engaging the viewer, weaving the story from beginning to end with slow builds, dramatic reveals, joyous endings, all with seamless editing that is pleasure to watch, this is what makes a wedding film edited by Applause Weddings stand out from the crowd.
Here at Applause, we edit each film with help from the same team who shot the footage. This is how we ensure that each film is handcrafted to be unique, and to tell YOUR story.
The best part (in our opinion) is that we don't stop with just the Highlights! Our Applause packages include your Full-Length Ceremony as well as a long version of your Reception (we shoot until the Last Dance!) and all of this is NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
If you watch all of these wedding films, I think you'll be able to see that there is a range of feelings showcased in each one, because each couple's wedding day had it's own vibe! Sometimes its easy to view weddings as all being the same....there's prep, vows, photos, and dancing. And that's true, those elements exist in each wedding day schedule, but won't each of these elements be planned by you, and match your personality? Won't each of these wedding traditions have your own special spin put on them, to reflect the utter uniqueness of your love? This is what we aim to reveal when we edit your wedding video.
The follow videos are just a few of the wonderful 2018 weddings we filmed. For more including lots of one minute Sneak-Peeks (also included in your Applause Package), visit our YouTube channel.

Talk about elegant simplicity! Felix and Dariyan had it all! There was lots of red, navy and sparkle just in the right places to make this day as special as this couple is!
For their September 2, 2017 wedding, Dariyan chose a beautiful white wedding gown with simply beautiful sheer elements, along with just a touch of sparkle. Pair that with the red jewels and the tiara she wore, wow! What a knockout! Her bridal bouquet was a lovely combination of calla lilies and roses in white, red and black, along with decorative sparkles for that extra added touch.
Felix wore a super sharp red tuxedo with black accents and a black bow tie, and at one point, he also wore a red jeweled crown! He certainly looked like royalty!
Their ceremony and reception took place at STL Banquet Center in St. Louis, Missouri where Applause Weddings supplied their Round of Applause package that includes DJ Services, Videography, Photobooth and Uplighting/Monogram. Felix and Dariyan had an awesome monogram that was projected onto a large red curtain, which made a great centerpiece for the whole reception area. Lots of dancing and celebrating ensued after the ceremony, and all appeared to have a great time! It was great to share your wedding day with you and your family, Felix and Dariyan! We wish you a life of love together!
For the couple who had it all, they also booked it all! Our Round of Applause package includes it all! Check it out on our website!
On November 11, 2017, Jenna and David were joined in Holy Matrimony by Father Bill Kempf during beautiful ceremony St. Ambrose Catholic Church in St. Louis, Missouri. The church pews were full of friends and family as they witnessed the love of this couple as their lives became one.
Jenna wore a gorgeous strappy, sequined wedding gown with a mermaid silhouette and a chapel length train. She chose to have a First Look with her Dad and it was obvious that he was stunned by his little girl all dressed up like a princess, ready to be married.
David sported a black tux, a crisp white shirt and black bow tie and was handsome as can be for his bride.
After the ceremony, Jenna and David took a stroll through Lafayette Park in St. Louis, which made for a great background of their fall wedding. As they walked through the park, our videographers at Applause Weddings caught some great shots of our couple walking through the fallen leaves. What an awesome way to be able to revisit that day forever on video! You could almost smell the crisp fall air and hear the leaves rustling by just watching their finished Wedding Film!
At Rose of the Hill in St. Louis, the Newlyweds and their loved ones celebrated together as Applause Weddings provided DJ services. Lots of dancing, and some singing by friends and family!
Applause Weddings offers more than just Videography and DJ Services. We also can do Ceremony Sound, Uplighting and a Custom Monogram!

Wouldn't it be nice if everything you wanted to choose for your wedding could be lined up side by side so you could simply compare? Making the right choices can be daunting especially with the pressure of the budget and the "once in a lifetime" chance to make the most of your wedding day.
I don't know if it's because we are "old school" having been in the videography business over 20 years and counting, or if it's because we are "old fashioned" and believe that hard earned money should be spent on real value, but for us, a wedding video package just isn't complete without a Full Length Ceremony. Sure, you may not watch it more than a handful of times, but those time that you do will be SO important.
The first time you see your wedding video will be when we first deliver it to you. You'll sit down together, probably after a long day at work, or on a lazy Saturday morning. There might be snacks. There WILL BE cuddling. You'll press play and suddenly it's like the whole day comes rushing back. The best part is, you'll see moments you remember, and ones you don't! You'll see details you were a part of, and the ones you missed. You'll watch everyone walk down the aisle, and then you'll see your vows as they happened, in their entirety. And finally you'll see the moment you are introduced to the world as newlyweds.
The next time you'll watch will be with your immediate family. Your parents and grandparents and this time you will all get to experience the joy over again, TOGETHER, and in the comfort of home. You'll laugh and cry at all the special moments you shared. It's just another unforgettable piece of the puzzle when two families are united.
Still another time you'll watch your full wedding video is with your children. Whether they were a part of the ceremony, or not even born yet, they WILL want to see the moment their parents became united as one and started their new family journey.
Now, it's possible these may be the only times you watch this version of your wedding film. Or, it's possible you'll get it out every anniversary, or maybe just the milestone ones. Maybe at your 25th you'll show a few clips at your anniversary party. Or at your 50th, your grandkids will be amazed at how fashion has changed (or come back around!).
We believe you deserve the best possible version of your full length wedding ceremony video. That's why we shoot with multiple cameras and multiple videographers. We want your view to be as good as the view from the guest's seats. We also want to ensure that we don't miss anything, so those extra cameras are a great backup plan for most anything that can happen.
Please don't assume that all wedding videographers approach the full length ceremony is the same way. Ask them how many cameras and how many videographers there are, and where the cameras are placed. Ask how many full-length ceremonies they've done, and Ask to SEE THEM. Make sure you see continuous footage and great audio. These are the things that we provide in our Applause packages at no additional cost.
You can check out a few of our Full Length Ceremonies below:
