Monogram & Slide Show at the Binghamton Club w/ Mobile Wedding DJ Johnny Only

Binghamton Wedding DJ


This was a beautiful fall-themed reception complete with uplights to compliment the colors that Michelle and Mike had chosen. My projector and flat screen filled out the visual effects.

We used a slide show on the elevated flat screen to enhance the impact and memorability of the parents’ dances. Pictures of the bride growing up were shown during the father-daughter dance and pictures of the groom growing up were shown during the mother-son dance.

The flat screen was high enough and strategically positioned so that the guests could see the slide show just above the dancing couple’s heads. That way, family and friends could enjoy them both simultaneously.

Seeing memories of the past on the flat screen while watching the couple dance in front of it drew oohs and aahs of appreciation along with laughter and a few tears.

The Binghamton Club has a perfect wall space for the projected monogram, but the monogram can also be projected on the dancefloor by mounting the projector on a light stand up high and pointing it down to the dancefloor per the following photo.

As far as the music selection, Michelle and Mike left it up to me to read the crowd which is where a DJ’s experience and skill level really shows. The guests loved it! I am equally comfortable with couples who give me a list of favorites to work in for maximum fun and dancing spontenaity.

At this reception, there was a pretty good mix of ages, so I worked hard to choose songs that the majority of them would know and enjoy.

They just kept dancing all night!

Wedding Uplighting and Monogram at Binghamton Holiday Inn’s Carousel Ballroom

“Thank you so much for being at our wedding! Johnny, you were an amazing DJ and Master of Ceremonies. Everything from the lighting, to the music, and the newlywed game was perfect and better than we could have ever imagined…” “…The photobooth was also epic…” “…Thank you again! We love you guys!” Michelle and Raymond



I was the DJ for the first wedding reception in the Carousel Ballroom of the Binghamton Holiday Inn last weekend. Enhanced by uplighting and a projected monogram, the reception was as elegant as it was fun!

Notice how uplighting brings life to the room even while sunshine is still streaming in through the windows.

Uplighting and Monogram

From the guests veiwpoint, the monogram is right side up:

Looking even more striking during the dancing!

Absolutely radiant shining through the brides dress!

Uplighting and Monogram
Projected monograms look awesome even with a full dancefloor

Added visual excitement during the dancing as the uplights change color to fit the mood. Made possible because my uplights are wirelessly controlled from my computer.

DJ Johnny Only’s uplighting and projected monogram

In addition to my DJ/MC services, I supplied the uplighting and the monogram on the wall over the head table.

I also placed uplighting under the head table skirting and the cake table skirting as well to enhance the effect.

Below, there was an empty wall space here featuring a photo table. I placed the uplights at an angle to fill the space and to emphasize the table.

The material hanging from the ceiling and the chair covers were supplied by the House of Treasures.

What you don’t see is a projector blocking guests or traffic. It is off to the side on a tall stand above people’s heads and uses horizontal keystone technology to keep the projected monogram image symetrical.
