When corporate clients call us, we want to be the only phone call that they have to make to plan, prepare, and eventually execute their event. We offer so many different options + a wide variety of services that it can be overwhelming at times, so we decided to shorten it this week for you and give you a quick overview of all of the incredible ideas and services that you can include at your next corporate event...

Nashville during the Spring brings a renewed sense of living life + a fresh start from succeeding at work, to the inspiration to get outside and enjoy the beautiful sunshine. Why would your company not combine the two? Most organizations, in addition to the annual holiday parties, also host a Spring Picnic for employees and their families. Keep reading for ideas and picnic must-haves from Nashville's premiere entertainment provider..
This past weekend Nashville had the honor of hosting one of the biggest hockey events in the world, the 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend. The warm weather, friendly locals, and Winter-Park set up in the middle of downtown welcomed guests from both different states and countries. Snyder Entertainment was fortunate to be a part of the experience from Fan Fair to the invitation-only after-party.
The planning stages are officially underway for upcoming events here at Snyder, and it never fails we get emails or phone calls from our clients that start out with, "I know this may be a stupid question but.." And we just want you to know that there is no such thing as a stupid question!
Let's face it, you're going to have a great party, you're going to have an amazing DJ (especially if you hire one from Snyder Entertainment) whose going to be playing the best, most popular, dance-worthy songs all night long, BUT you're going to have a handful of guests who just aren't into dancing. And if you don't have something entertaining going on for your non-dancing guests to indulge in besides the dessert table, then you're going to have some guests who will probably leave out early. As someone who is married to a great guy who doesn't always enjoy getting his groove on, it can be frustrating to leave early simply because there isn't anything for him to "do." That's where Snyder Entertainment can solve this boredom problem, the dilemma ends, and the struggle isn't real anymore; we can provide you with a Photo-booth.
I almost sang a Glee Christmas song this morning on the way to work. I quickly changed it because it's my personal policy not transition to holiday mode until Thanksgiving weekend. While I may not be one to start my holiday planning early, it's not too early to start planning your company holiday party! We started getting calls about holiday parties back in August. Yes, people, that's how far out the planning begins. It's not too late to start now! Most people dread attending their company holiday bash, but it doesn't have to be that way! Let's plan a holiday party that your guests want to attend!
Skylar and Daniel are deeply rooted in the community. They wanted to make sure that their evening was totally inclusive and highly energetic for their guest. The idea of relaxed anticipation was apparent from day one and it carried through to the end of the night. To be honest, I came away feeling as though I had known these two for years. Their calm and welcoming spirit was appreciated and perfectly expressed through delicate touches on their wedding day. This was, in my opinion, the perfect recipe for an exciting night!
The events were held in the vintage rustic Saddle Woods Farm in Rutherford County, TN. The day couldn’t have possibly been better. Rain had threatened the day before, but by day break on Saturday, the sun was shining and temps were warming. The setting was perfect with elegant touches of burgundy and white throughout the venue. Skylar wanted to keep the color scheme more in line with the fall season and the rustic look of the venue allowed her to do just that. Exposed wood and tasteful splashes of greenery helped break up the colors both inside and out. The ceremony took place in the woods next to the barn where a minor pre-reception was held between the ceremony and dinner. Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” provided the soundtrack to the wedding party introductions. It was obvious at this point, we were in for a huge celebration. Spirited celebrations began to sporadically take place as the anticipation began to hit a fever pitch for Skylar and Daniel’s introduction. The barn erupted in loud applause from the 150+ in attendance when “Mr. & Mrs. Daniel Palo” were introduced for the first time!
Dinner was a wonderful feast made up of Chicken, Mac ‘N Cheese, and all the fixing’s provided by Two Fat Men Catering of Lebanon, TN. The dinner was followed by the cake cutting featuring music from The Average White Band (Cut The Cake). Daniel had played baseball at MTSU and so instead of doing a Groom’s Cake, he elected to have Baseball designed cupcakes for guest. A wonderfully personal touch to the evening’s sugary selections. The Matron of Honor, Anna Surratt and Best Man, Conlon Palo shared a few words with both the guest and Bride and Groom prior to the special dances.
First dance for Daniel and Skylar was a wonderful song by the New Basement Tapes “When I Get My Hands On You”. Skylar then elected to dance with her father, Tommy McRae, to the song “Send Me On My Way” by Rusted Root. Daniel closed out the special dances with a spin around the dance floor with his grandmother, Linell Palo, to the song “Simple Man” by Lynard Skynard. From the moment the special dancing ended to the sendoff, the dance floor was electric and PACKED!
Some of the songs Daniel and Skylar wanted to make sure they got to dance to were party favorites “Cupid Shuffle” and “Watch Me”. They also wanted to make sure Van Halen’s classic, “Jump”, was played which ended up getting everyone together for one of many dance circles. It was unbelievable. The photobooth was alive all night long bustling with activity from the moment it was turned on. Over 150 photos were taken and preserved in a special scrap book for Daniel and Skylar to have compliments of Snyder Entertainment.
The send off included a VERY large crowd with hands filled with glow sticks leading to a waiting Land Rover. The party continued at a local bar in Murfreesboro where all guest were invited to attend. A perfect night full of memories and celebration came to an end almost as quickly as they tied the knot.
We had the chance to work with some very amazing vendors including the folks at Saddle Woods Farm (Venue), Two Vintage Monkey’s (Wedding Planning), Two Fat Men Catering (Food), She and Him Weddings (Photographer), and Taylor Knose (Videographer).
We congratulate Daniel and Skylar and wish them nothing but success and happiness!
We've all been to at least one corporate event in our lifetime. They are a hint of boring with a splash of uneventful. Why do corporate events have to be so lame? THEY DON'T! While corporate events do require some seriousness and company wide discussion, we can help you take the underwhelming feeling of dread out of your next corporate function with several of our services! We want to make sure your next event is one that your national, regional, or local teams will all be talking about the next day!
A few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to hang out at Tailgate Brewery for their first open house event. Brad Ford was providing the music for the evening while the rest of the team hung out with our photo booth. It was a great evening mixing and mingling with fellow professionals and exploring one of Nashville's newest places to host events! G Catering and Events was there providing all of the delicious food while Details Nashville provided the photography and videography! Here's a sneak peak from the open house!
