Let it rain, but the show must go on
“Let it rain, but the show must go on”, says the invincible (bride) Maeva on her wedding night as it begins to drizzle during her first dance with stylish (groom) Romain.
The french couple prepared the absolute craziest wedding with the day-of-coordination of Levine Events, bringing a “sky full of stars” to the dinner section, over mesmerizing the guests with bistro cafe lighting 13 feet in the air.
The day begins at the extensive outdoor courses of Botanical Gardens near the Miami Convention Center. Levine Events brings their violinists to deliver “All of Me”, by John Legend, as Maeva walks down the isle. Right behind her, over 100 feet high is our drone helicopter camera, capturing the scenery so that nothing gets lost in translation. But literally nothing gets lost, because our very own Mark Levine personally translated the entire ceremony from English to french.
The chemistry between this gorgeous french couple and our crew was instant. DJ Mark Levine spent over 2 years in Paris performing for Disney, and Carlos (DJ Fusion drummer) is a francophone since childhood. The music list is just right, the bistro lights are ready, TV color show is set, video cameras tested, intelligent robot dance lights in the air… “nothing can go wrong!”, says Mark entering the wedding reception at MAPS Backlot (one of our favorite locations). Little did we know.
The drizzle over the first dance put the couple to the test as their guests held flashing sparklers to fire up the moment. 5 minutes later, the rain was so heavy that the guests could hardly see each other; and the domino effect begins, a sad bride makes an angry groom… so Levine Events must come to the rescue.
Entering the nearest room (luckily with a full cocktail bar), two Levine drummers remove the silent with the latin tradition of Hora Loca. Carlos follows the beat of Alan, Alan blasts the base to keep the guests in tune. Shortly then, Levine brings the samba dancers, stilt walkers in colorful french attire, and the bride finally understands that you can “Let it rain, but the show must go on”.
