Read on to find out what makes this full-service DJ, lighting, special effects and audio-visual company a top pick for Houston weddings…and what LG Event Entertainment has in store for 2019 and 2020 couples!
Weddings in Houston: How did you get your start in wedding & event entertainment?
Lewis Grell: A good friend of mine asked me to DJ for him at his birthday party, and it wasn’t until then that I realized how much I love to entertain a crowd. This was the first step of DJing for me, and from there I became familiar with the events industry. Once I came to discover that the creativity within this profession was limitless, I was all in.
WIH: What are LG’s most in-demand wedding services?
LG: We offer a full-scale of entertainment and production—anywhere from simple lighting to a full-on CO2 blaster. Whatever you need, we can accommodate.
WIH: What do you think makes LG such a standout in the Houston wedding entertainment market?
LG: We continually evolve with the latest trends. Whether the couple knows exactly what they want or haven’t started their planning, we always suggest out-of-the-box ideas. For example: dancing dinosaur costumes!
WIH: What’s hot on the music, dance and entertainment scene for 2019-2020 weddings?
LG: You’d have to come into our showroom and find out!
WIH: Fair enough! OK…what’s your favorite first dance song?
LG: Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back”… just kidding! My most prized first dance would have to be something that truly represents the couple. Anything that has sentimental value to them.
WIH: What do you love most about working with wedding couples?
LG: The connection between the two, most definitely. I love meeting couples and just seeing the spark that’s there. Not only is it admirable, it drives me to do whatever I can to give them the best, most memorable night of their life.

Talk about a meet cute: When Ashley and Andrew both showed up a Halloween party dressed as Tom Cruise (Ashley as T.C. from “Risky Business,” Andrew as T.C. from “Top Gun”), it was only natural that they’d find each other and hit it off. That was in 2016. Two years later, the self-proclaimed goofballs–both of whom say that a sense of humor and ability to make one another laugh is what they love most about each other–tied the knot at The Astorian, in the presence of 200 loved ones. “We were raised to try and waste nothing, repurpose much, include those who are challenged, and when spending time or money, make decisions with love and prayer that support those efforts,” the couple tells us. And by taking special measures with their wedding planning, such as delivering their repurposed bouquets to senior assisted living communities in the Medical Center area of Houston, and choosing guest favors from Sweet Heat Jam Co., which sells products handmade by mentally and physically challenged individuals in Katy, the couple was able to achieve that, “and so much more, on the BEST DAY EVER!” Ashley says. We invite you to take a moment and enjoy this thoughtful and elegant wedding (including a GORGEOUS cake from local legend Cakes By Gina) as we wish Ashley and Andrew a lifetime of love!Click here to read the rest of this post »
