There are few things more striking than a beautiful fireworks display. Unfortunately, due to their nature, fireworks are too dangerous for most situations. Hence the creation of Cold Sparks- a special effect that looks like pyrotechnic fireworks displays, without the dangers of fireworks.
How do they work?
Cold Sparks technology uses physics instead of chemistry to create the dazzling firework look. Instead of relying on a flame or pilot flame to ignite as pyrotechnics and fireworks do. The Cold Sparks machine uses packaged grains of zirconium & titanium, which burn at a cool 62 degrees, colder than human body temperatures, versus the 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit that traditional pyrotechnics and fireworks burn at.
Thus, giving fire marshalls, venue owners, and wedding planners peach of mind that nothing will catch fire, and they can use them indoors instead of being regulated to the outdoor venues.
How are they operated?
Cold Sparks machine is digitally controlled by a controller that an operator runs. The controller allows you to set height (Up to 16ft), volume, frequency (10,20.30 seconds).
Where traditional pyrotechnics can only be ignited once and not stopped till they run out of fuel, the Cold Sparks machine runs for 10 minutes per grain packed and can be adjusted while running.
Discuss with your fiancé what is most important to the both of you. Is it venue location, flowers, Photo/Video, music, food, or special effects for the big day? Once you figure this out it’s onto the next step; finding vendors that meet your budget and vision for your big day.
Start with a Wedding Planner:
Most couples think that a wedding planner is out of their budget so they forgo working with one. When in reality they can help you save money by recommending venues and vendors that do a great job and are reliable. They might even have special offers from vendors they know and trust.
We personally work with Lily In June’s owner and wedding planner Stephanie Coulter to help her brides find photographers, videographers, DJ’s, Photobooths, and special effects to bring their wedding visions to life.
Ask vendors for referrals:
Once you’ve found one vendor you trust don’t be afraid to ask them for a recommendation of other vendors you might be looking for also. They will be happy to point you in the direction of someone who will match your budget, style, and personality.
When we have talk with brides or are asked, we happily will mention that we work with companies like Lily In June (floral and decorations) and The Couture Cake company. We also can help refer out to venues that we are preferred at like The Pavilion at Vida Bela if needed also.
Don’t Get Locked In:
When looking at venues make sure you check what their vendor policies are. Some don’t allow you to bring outside vendors in and require that you only work with the vendors they have or a set list they work with only. Try to find a venue that is flexible on their policies so you are free to find vendors you know you’ll be 100% happy with.
HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) — The wedding industry was moving at its normal pace earlier this year, but everything changed when the COVID-19 pandemic escalated in March.
“March, April, and May are the busiest days of a wedding vendor’s life,” said Alex Leon of Weddings Unlimited, a company that offers photography, DJ services, and more. “We had hundreds of bookings, and then everything came to a halt.”
The story was similar for Michael Vayner of PicMe Events, which provides photo and entertainment booths to weddings, parties, and more.
“We had our last event March 8th,” said Vayner.
The impact of the pandemic caused Leon and Vayner to come together to bring joy back to the lives of brides, grooms, and vendors in the industry.
“It breaks our heart,” said Vayner. “We have to give back.”
The two created The Great Wedding Giveaway, which will provide one lucky couple with a full wedding experience.
“We want to give away a full wedding package,” said Leon. “It includes everything.”
Participating vendors include The Pavilion at Vida Bela for the venue, Lily in June for floral services, Lighthouse Catering for food, Roar Over Texas for pyrotechnics, Darling Way for a pre-wedding party, and much more.
“One of the most exciting things is being able to work with these brides,” said Mandi Quinata of Lily in June. “We’re able to see them really pull of a beautiful day.”
All couples are eligible to participate in the raffle-style giveaway, starting on August 15, by signing up at COVIDWeddingGiveaway.com. The first entry is free, with some proceeds from subsequent entries going to first responders and frontline workers.
The contest closes on September 15, and the winner will be announced on September 20.
“We say COVID can’t beat love,” says Leon. “And we stand behind that.”

Your first dance is on of the biggest memorable moments of your wedding!
there are so many unique ways to add an extra-special flair to this important moment and most importantly make for some serious photo ops. These are the moments that you will have and hold for the rest of your lives, you will probably forget the food and maybe even who came and with which date but the pictures of you and your soulmate dancing for the first time as husband and wife is a memory and a keepsake you’ll never forget.
One of the biggest trends in memorable first dances is a low lying fog effect called “dancing on the clouds”. Wedding DJs in Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Dallas frequently do indoor receptions, due to that Texas heat. Dancing on the clouds needs a non windy area to make for the perfect pictures. Want to give your dancing on the clouds first dance a bit of extra flair? Add spotlight or even colored lighting to make the clouds have colors and a lit up experience!
Ready for something different?
How about fresh flower petals falling all around you two as you dance? Your wedding DJ and MC service can work with your florist to get flower petals of your choosing to make this statement that your photographer and videographer will appreciate when making your memory albums and videos. This beautiful effect can be completely customized by your Wedding DJ along with Florist. The petals are delivered through a “continuous blower” and not a blast, this ensures safety and beauty as the flower petals will fall throughout the song and not just for a short moment. Wedding venues appreciate that the cleanup is easy because the flowers are naturally able to be swept outdoors. This effect can be great at any Texas Wedding inside or out.
The best Wedding DJs in Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Fort Worth & Dallas can do a confetti fall for your first dance. These blown confetti falls are available in almost any color and shimmer as well! Prefer falling streamers? No problem! Make great pictures and videos with confetti falls!
No matter what you choose
Remember, the first dance is not only the first dance but it is the ONLY first dance you will have, It will be the go to picture as one of the top moments of your introduction to the world as husband and wife. Make it the most memorable moments with these awesome effects!
