We, at JPod Productions, were so happy with the response that we received for our first ever Best Wedding Trailer of 2012 Contest! First, I want to thank all of the people who took the time to watch all five wedding video trailers and vote for their favorites.

With that being said, the Winner of the 2012 Contest is Annoula and Mike Bikas! Their wedding had a great ethnic element mixed in with some downtown flair this past summer. They will receive a $250 gift certificate to the home store of their choice.


Using a random number generated, we also selected two voters to win $25 gift certificates to the restaurant or store of their choice. The first winner is Dino Gravenis who voted on Facebook for our winners, Annoula and Mike. The second winner is Michelle Elizabeth who also voted on Facebook and her favorite wedding video trailer was Melissa and Jayson’s film from Saltwater Farm Vineyard.  Thanks again for participating and we’ll see you next year!

It seems that one of the consistent vendors in the wedding industry is the disc jockey. The premier DJs tend to remain as the premier DJs. So, when a new disc jockey moves into that premier group, it is rare. This month’s Vendor of the Month is one those DJs that has risen into the premier DJ category over the past few years.

Brian Nicks Productions has burst onto the scene in multiple ways, but Brian’s bread and butter is being a great disc jockey. Brian has the main elements of a great DJ, which is threefold. First, he really is a great communicator, as he invests into his couples learning all about them and their wedding day. He is also is a great communicator on the wedding day keeping vendors up to date on all the formalities of the reception, so they can capture it the best way possible. Secondly, he is very good emcee. Brian has the perfect voice for the microphone and he really knows how to get the crowd going during introductions. Finally, Brian can read a crowd. That means he knows the right music to play to keep different crowds dancing all the time. The right music choices and mixing of songs will tremendously affect the reception experience and Nicks just has that knack of reading the crowd.

In addition to his role as disc jockey, Brian and his Project Manager Sam Moniz are busy as bees working on the Brides Tell All events, which allow future brides to hear from three former brides about their experiences on their wedding day. Brian gets the nod for being one of those vendors who is passionate about the business and that’s why he is August’s Vendor of the Month.
