“Music is what feelings sound like…” - Euphoric Entertainment

Standing back, watching a wedding party dance the night way to their favorite music, we breathe a sigh of relief. After months and months of meticulous planning, design and details gone over with clients, the final hours of the wedding can make or break the entire day. With Eric Larson from Euphoric Entertainment in the DJ booth, we know the night is in incredible hands. It’s not just Eric’s many years of experience that matter, it’s his commitment to delivering the absolute best experience for his clients and his positive, can-do attitude that make all the difference.

Last summer we worked a wedding at a popular Duluth venue - Park Point Beach House with Eric as the DJ. When a windy day by Lake Superior turned into the most beautiful, calm evening, Eric didn’t bat an eye when I asked him if he’d be willing to move the dance party outside. There are so many DJ’s that would have struggled with this ask. Moving equipment, disrupting the show, so many excuses could have prevented the change in plans….but Eric was game and jumped on the chance to thrill the clients and take advantage of a rare opportunity for dancing under the stars.

When we work with Eric, we truly feel like we are on the same team. He never hesitates to assist other vendors and he will go above and beyond to make a wedding day perfect. He’s even let us borrow his car… Choosing the entertainment for your wedding day is a big decision. We strongly recommend doing your research, interviewing the vendor and making a choice based on who you think will best bring your wedding day over the finish line.

Going Corporate. Part Two.

...in a previous blog post, we showcased a corporate event with a festival theme that met the client's objective of creating a fun, memorable, INDOOR evening for their convention guests. Today we'll continue a dive into our corporate experience with events planned for a client's week long corporate retreat in Duluth. 

Corporate Event Planner - Destination Management Event

The Client: International Acquisition company in the construction trade, based out of the Twin Cities.

The Event: Annual Leadership Summit for company leadership and their guests. This event moves from location to location each year and has been previously held in places such as Washington, DC. The Summit takes place over several days and includes luncheon and dinner events for both the leadership and spouses on each day. 

The Challenge: Showcase Duluth's BEST locations, food, and fun and incorporating high-end, unique experiences for the guests. Provide on-location event planning support and coordination for the company's in-house event planner.

As a full-service event planning, decor, floral and design company, our client appreciated our ability to fulfill all of their needs on-location in Duluth. This included sourcing local favorites for the guest amenity bags, packing and delivering bags to local hotels, developing comprehensive transportation plan for 130 guests in multiple locations over multiple days, coordinating vendors, attending tastings, printing stationery pieces - you name it, we were there to take care of their every need. 

NSE and our sister company, Fleurtation, also provided floral and decor services for two day-time and 2 evening events that wow'ed the client and made us so incredibly proud! Working with Apres Tent & Party Rental for linens, dishware, tables, chairs, tenting and more we designed showstopping events that the guests couldn't stop talking about! 

Here are galleries from three of the events and the team we worked with to create the magic! All photos courtesy of Sternberg Studios. All guest transportation provided by Black Tie Affair.
