Three Lighting Trends for 2019 Weddings

farmto table (1).png

February is almost over, which means that enough of 2019 has gone by for Bridal magazines to begin forecasting the biggest wedding trends that we will be seeing this year, and lighting keeps coming up. As we have scanned the lists, it’s been exciting to see all of the ways that Snyder Entertainment can provide options to match these big trends. Scroll to see three of the biggest reception trends of 2019, and how Snyder can help you make your wedding a day your guests will remember forever!

Personalized Details


Event planners are forecasting that personalization will continue to play a major role in the decor of many bride’s planning. Signature cocktails, special personal touches, and names and initials everywhere is what you can plan to see. This can even be done through lighting design!

Our lighting options give you the opportunity to personalize your dance floor or reception hall lighting to project special dates, names, phrases, or anything else you can dream up! This will give your reception that personal flare that will impress your guests.

Bright Pops of Color


From pops of colors in flower arrangements, bridesmaid dresses, or even send-offs with confetti, it’s projected that brides will be finding ways to break up the monotony in 2019 with brightly colored accents. These splashes of color can help show off a couple’s personality and style, without overwhelming the look of the reception.

Snyder has plenty of dance floor lighting options that will express your personality, while maintaining a classic, put-together look.

Statement Lighting


Statement lighting has been popular in weddings and events for a while, and it has not gone away. In 2019, the more show-stopping, the better! Dreamy, romantic lighting, or get-off-your-feet-and-dance lighting are possible with our lighting design options. Uplighting can also cast extra light to areas you may want to highlight (think wedding cakes!). The options are endless, because we want to be able to provide exactly what you need to have your personal dream wedding!

Rock your Resolutions in 2019 with this Playlist

We are well into 2019 now, which means our resolutions are feeling harder to keep. Isn’t it funny how ambitious we can be when we’re in the midst of the holidays, and work responsibilities feel a million years away? Then the daily grind kicks back in, and that daily gym visit you thought you were going to make feels more like a joke than a resolution.

We’re right there with you, and we want 2019 to be the year where you can be the best YOU possible. So, we did what we do best: made a great mix.

Our leader and DJ extraordinaire, Bradley Ford, recorded a live mix that’s exactly what you need to pump you up mid-week at the gym. It starts with a series of high-tempo songs that will pump you up, followed by songs that you can cool down and stretch to near the end. (Side note: he did this on the fly. If his off-the-cuff work is this good, imagine what he can do with a little planning!)

Maybe your resolution isn’t to work out, but you need some high-energy tunes to keep you focused on a different set of goals. Whatever your pursuits are for 2019, we hope this mix helps!

Connect with us on Facebook or Instagram and let us know what you like about the mix, and what goals you’re going to crush this year while listening to it!

Chat with us here to talk about what event goals we can help you with this year!

Nashville DJ Diaries | Ringing in the New Year at The BAP

Well, 2018 is officially in the books. It was a wild ride for us here at Snyder, and we are so thrilled for all that we have accomplished this past year.

To close out such a fantastic chapter in our company, we did what we do best: we partied hard.

The BAP is our annual New Year’s Eve celebration that is hosted in collaboration with some of our favorite people here in Nolensville, TN. We held the party at Mint Springs Farm, as we have done many times before, because they are always so good to us.

The BAP once was just a small gathering of friends, but it has since grown into the best party in town, and we love that we still have the opportunity to help host. Today, we wanted to share the good time with all of you. Scroll to see some of the great times that were had.


At this year’s BAP, there were many elements that took this party to a level it has never been to before! We were thrilled to provide so many things for our favorite event.

-Lighting (and you can see from the photos that there was a variety of lighting styles!)

-DJ services provided by Bradley Ford

-Social Roaming Booths

-A Step and Repeat Photo Drop

-Confetti Canons/Streamers

…and so much more!

It’s such a great feeling to be able to offer so many services to many of you throughout the year, and then to be able to turn around and share our talents with our own community to say goodbye to the year. It only feels appropriate that we ended our year this way, and we’re thrilled to share a little slice of our evening with you!

Brad’s set list from the night is up on Mixcloud; check it out and let it transport you back to New Year’s Eve. Click below to listen.

We wish you all a very happy new year, and we hope to be a part of your story in 2019. Reach out to us today to plan your next epic event!

Elevate your Events in 2019: Snyder Social Roaming Booths

Behind The Turntable-3.png

If you’ve been to an event with a Social Roaming Booth, you won’t need us to pitch them to you. You already know what a statement they make. However, if you’ve never seen a Social Roaming Photo Booth in action, you may be wondering what the heck this post is even talking about.

Before you take the time to Google it, allow us to show you a few pictures of ours in action:


As you can see, Social Roaming Booths don’t look like any photo ‘booth’ you’ve seen before. They’re slim. lightweight, and completely mobile…but they pack a lot of punch when it comes to engaging party guests! We have some on-hand here at Snyder, and we never get anything but rave reviews when we provide them for events. Today, we wanted to let you all in on three reasons why these photo booths are the thing you should have at your event in 2019.

1.) The photo booth experience is brought to your guests, instead of the other way around.

Let’s take a second to unpack why that’s so invaluable. First of all, it completely eliminates lines and clutter at your event. Guests don’t have to find a lull in the action to decide to go stand in line to get some photos and document their attendance, and you don’t have to worry about planning to accommodate space for the physical booth AND the people who will be waiting to use it. Second, no one has to leave the party. Photos can be taken on the dance floor, at the bar, at cocktail hour, etc. etc. You can capture the fun your guests are having at any moment of the party, and you don’t need to herd them to one corner of the room to do it. More candid photo ops encourage people to be a little less stiff and in turn may get you some really fun pictures!

2.) You can cover more ground of your party.

Snyder Social Booths are the perfect thing to add to an event that will already have a stand-alone photo booth! Guests love posing for photos, and you will get more people to jump into a quick photo when the camera is right there on the dance floor with them. This allows you to capture more moments of more of your guests, leaving everyone in attendance with some fun memories of the evening.

3.) Your guests will engage more, because these booths DO more.

The “Social” in the booth’s name is there for a reason: the photos taken with these booths are uploaded and sent to guests instantly via text or email. This allows your attendees to post them right away, giving others a live-action look at your party! The amazing shots of your friends won’t simply be on prints for them to see…they can share them with the world, advertising what an incredible party-planner you are.

And that’s not all: these tech-packed options can create gifs, Boomerangs, add in virtual props, Green Screen backgrounds, and so much more…without any bulk or additional prep on your end! Your guests will love having so many options to customize the photos they are taking, all without even stepping foot off of the dance floor!

Social Booths are the future, and Snyder is here to help you navigate your way there. If your 2019 resolution is to create even more memorable moments at your events than you did in 2018, then we are your people and we want to meet you. Make plans to chat with us today!

We wish you all a fantastic New Year! We can’t wait to see what 2019 brings us!
