Elegant Draping and Lighting for Dallas Weddings

It’s no secret that one of our favorite venues in DFW is the Ruthe Jackson Center in Grand Prairie!  Just about any week of the year, we are draping, lighting, DJing, videoing, providing photo booths, doing a slow motion video booth, providing “Dancing on a Cloud” for a couples first dance, pin spotting the cake, okay, enough already, the list is long!  It’s a perfect fit for us because RJC is one of the more progressive venues around.  Take a look at their Pinterest page and you can see the caliber of events they do.  We owe so much to Cheryl Allgood & Chip Nami!  Without Cheryl’s constant question, “Can you do this?”, we wouldn’t be the top company for elegant draping and lighting for Dallas Weddings!  The answer is always, “Yes, Cheryl, we can do that.”  Then we go figure out how!

Check out this photo by rock star photographer, Jim Rode!  Floral design by another rock star, Kate Foley!   Have you ever seen a floral arrangement that long?  (a trick to pin spot!)  Of course, the lovely draping is from Randy Ro!  Hand picked, custom fabrics, always!  Fire retardant, always. (don’t let the fire marshall make you take the drape down).  Crystal beading, not always, it’s personalized to you.  Chandeliers, by request!  Multiple chandeliers, sure, can do!  Why not, it’s your wedding!

Draping Dallas, one venue at a time!

We are fortunate to be the first call draping company in Dallas for many DFW venues.  One of our favorites is the Ruthe Jackson Center (RJC) in Grand Prairie!  Pick a weekend and we are probably adding ceremony drape and lighting.  RJC is a wonderful venue if you like the choice of an indoor or outdoor ceremony in Dallas or Fort Worth.  The garden and gazebo are stunning!  Which style drape do you prefer?

Randy Ro continues it’s goal of draping Dallas, one venue at a time!  Let’s visit about your wedding!

Draping is one of the best ways to upscale a wedding.  There are a few key points to remember when hiring a drape company in Dallas.  First, all fabric must be flame retardant.  You don’t want the fire marshall asking you to take the drape down minutes before your ceremony.  Second, it must be set up on a professional schedule.  Having guests arriving while ladders and workers are still setting up is awkward.  Most draping companies will have a staff that is working all day and can accommodate an early set up that leaves plenty of time.  Last, it’s important that your draping company works as a team with your other vendors.  Sometimes the florist may add flowers the draping.  It’s a good idea that there is communication in advance of your wedding day.

Team RRE Winner of both The Knot’s Best of Weddings 2013 and WeddingWire’s Bride’s Choice Award 2013!

So excited to announce that Randy Ro Entertainment has been awarded both Best of Weddings by the Knot and The Bride’s Choice Award  for 2013!  That means we are rated in the top 4 or 5% wedding companies in the country.  Truly something for our team to be proud of!  We work really hard (just ask some of the guys on our crew when we are doing draping and lighting for a Dallas wedding!)  We totally love what we do!  While it’s nice to be recognized for this, the ultimate recognition comes from the thank you’s we get from our couples.

Happy 4th Birthday to Piazza in the Village!

Four years ago I blogged about the wedding we’d done that night for Christine & Jonathan on WEtv’s Platinum Weddings at The Piazza in the Village.   Platinum Weddings was a show about the most expensive weddings in the world.  Their website said it was a show that “”captures the drama and decadence of wedding planning on an extraordinary budget!”  We were very fortunate to join that elite wedding vendor status.  It’s opened a great deal doors for Randy Ro Entertainment that might have not be so openable.  As I write this, I’m just thankful.   Also, a very special thank you to Alex Gorman (who was on the staff at the Piazza in the beginning) and to Amy Watts (a personal friend) who recommended me to Alex.

Another awesome thank you!

We were honored to provide MC/DJ, Videographer, Lighting Design, and Photo Booth for bride, Ashley Miller.  When her and Eugene arrived at their Marriott Renaissance Richardson Dallas Hotel reception they wanted to see the ballroom before the guests came in.  The ballroom was glowing in pink up lighting and there was a huge “M” initial on the wall behind their Cup Cake Desert bar.  Ashley’s main focus was to get into our Dallas Photo Booth right away.  Here is the picture and note she sent us on Facebook.

People are still talking about how much fun the had in the photo booth!  We thought we would add our favorite photo booth pic to your page!  Thanks again!  Can’t wait to see the wedding video!  DJ Michael was fantastic and the uplighting looked incredible.”

Texas Wedding Guide photo shoot – The WOW Factor!

This stunning and surreal photo shoot for the current issue of The Texas Wedding Guide was designed by the amazing Ed Barrett at Signature Productions.  We were there for three days on the top floor of CityPlace in Dallas.  The room is a blank canvas (which is a wedding design and decor artist’s dream).  Randy Ro Entertainment added the columns around the room.  Posh brought in the most outrageous furniture you’ll ever see.  The stands are “one of a kind” brushed silver, made just for a wedding Ed & I did last summer.To get this look:

Thank you from Janet and Steve Yi

Omni Mandalay Wedding in Las Colinas
Janet called me from Kentucky where she works as a TV news reporter.  She would only be in Dallas a few times before the wedding and we would need to do most of the planning via email, telephone, and our online planning.  As you can tell by her very thoughtful thank you note, everything went beyond her expectations.  The thing I’m proudest of is that I wasn’t the MC/DJ for her reception (I was already booked).  One of our great DJ’s, Mike Sanderson, was keeping the flow and playing the music,  Great job, Mike!  Thank you, Janet and Steven, for letting us be a part of your special day!  By the way, the picture is actually the cover to their thank you note.  That’s fabulous!

Still more nice words from Katie & Jett

I had the honor of working with Katie and Jett on August 15th at Canyon Creek Country Club in Richardson. I cannot say how much I enjoy what I do without thinking of couples like Katie and Jett. Super couple, super wedding!

PSU Vikings, Dallas Cowboy, Kansas City Chief, Tony Curtis

Angelina and Tony Curtis had a specific picture in mind when we were booked to do the lighting decor for their reception at the Piazza in the Village. Angelina later said the room looked just like she imagined!  (By the way, her inspiration came from my favorite, Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine)

We can help make your dreams come true. What can you imagine?

Don’t Settle for Ordinary

Tonight we provided lighting services at Piazza in the Village for Christine and Jonathan’s Wedding on Platinum Weddings. Christine likes the great outdoors so we brought it inside for her reception. Through lighting and design we can turn your room into anything you like. Why settle for ordinary when we can make your reception extraordinary!

The Piazza in the Village is the ultimate venue for Weddings and Receptions! Ed Barrett of Signature Productions does amazing floral design!

A recent article in the Dallas Examiner suggested Destination Weddings without leaving home.  Villa Antonio in Lake Travis, Texas, was pictured in the article.  (If you need a DJ in Austin, call R.J. Johnson or… of course, we travel!). For those of you in the Dallas /Fort Worth area, The Old Red Museum in downtown Dallas also offers a castle look and feel.  It sits right on Dealey Plaza with views of the Book Depository building, Reunion Tower, and your guests can even tour the museum while you are taking your final wedding pictures!  Nikki and Matt are getting married there in April and I’m really excited to be their MC/DJ!
