Wedding Venue Gilbert AZ – The Falls

Wedding Venue Gilbert AZ – The Falls

There’s a great new event and wedding venue Gilbert AZ has that’s worth a notice, and we’d like everyone to know about it. It’s called The Falls Event Center and we think it’s just beautiful! Arizona wedding photographer Robbie Carpenter recently visited there and was able to apply her distinctive style of specialized light writing, putting their name in lights. First she wrote outside at one of the entrances,

and then went to over to the waterfall they have on the south side of the grounds.

The Falls in Gilbert Arizona – Wedding and Event Center

It’s so gorgeous there at The Falls in Gilbert. There’s all kinds of event space, with rooms for meeting, bridal preparation and dressing rooms, even a rooms just for the guys. There’s a game room, movie theater and more. Even the bathrooms are nice!

Outside there’s patios and waterfalls, and the building is beautiful and new. It’s actually a state of the art facility that seems great for a wide range of events such as wedding, parties, and corporate gatherings. With convenient freeway access and ample parking, it’s easy to see why this is a great place.

The best part is they allow your choice of vendors (like us!), allowing customization for you with every aspect of your event. I can’t even imagine why a person looking at an event venue would choose a location that dictates choices like Photographer, Disc Jockey, or Videographer, let alone details like food, cake and flowers. It’s your event, and should be done your way. This is one of many reasons why 3 Oceans Entertainment is not alone in recommending a closer look at this fine facility when considering an event in Gilbert.

Arizona photographer Robbie Carpenter can create a specialized digital image for  you using her light writing photography. Her repertoire includes hearts, the words “love” and “thanks” or “thank you”, and she’s been known to write custom last names, as long as they’re not too long! Please consider us for Photo, DJ, or Video services in Arizona.

 

WeddingWire Winners 8 Consecutive Years

We are WeddingWire Winners for the 8th straight year in a row

WeddingWire Winners 8 Consecutive Years 2009-2016

with the Couples’ Choice Awards – previously known as the Bride’s Choice Awards – for our DJ, Photography, and Videography services in and around Phoenix, Arizona.

This is especially significant for a good reason. Although many AZ wedding vendors claim this award for a year or more here and there, very few have the distinction of winning the award every single year back to the very first time these awards were issued in 2009. In fact, 3 Oceans Entertainment is one of only 9 Arizona wedding vendors who can say this.

WeddingWire Winners 3 Oceans Entertainment website
3 Oceans Entertainment – Event Wedding DJ Photo Video services in AZ

Just for fun, let’s break this down. Looking at the winners in all categories and in all markets nationwide is a lot of effort resulting in a huge number, so let’s just look at the Phoenix, AZ market and focus on Wedding Photographers, Videographers and DJs.

This year there were 153 award winners in those 3 categories. Very cool if you’re one of them, and understandable that a company’s PR person might feel compelled to brag about it, especially if it’s the first time.

Now let’s go back to 2009, when this same program was named “Bride’s Choice Awards” and there was only a total of 63. That’s a little different story. How many of these 63 carried through with an unbroken winning streak all the way to present? The answer is 9. They are:

  1. 3 Oceans Entertainment – DJ, Photography, and Videography
  2. Ray the DJ – DJ
  3. Ray Mar Productions – DJ
  4. Face the Music – DJ
  5. Birkett Entertainment – DJ
  6. Bill Limbach, The DJ for You! – DJ
  7. AZ Celebrity DJ – DJ
  8. All-American DJ – DJ
  9. Pinkerton Photography – Photography

There were no Phoenix AZ Wedding Videographers who made the list, and only 1 Photographer. Congratulations to these 8 other Arizona wedding vendors, who deserve recognition for honor in an increasingly crowded field. 9 companies specializing in weddings in the Phoenix area with a positive and proven track record over the last 8 years is a very small number indeed.

Why would a Bride and Groom even consider someone else? An insured professional with great rates and outstanding service is the way to go when considering Phoenix AZ wedding vendors, and WeddingWire winners 3 Oceans Entertainment are worth a look.

Scottsdale Arizona Wedding

Scottsdale Arizona Wedding

What a grand time everyone had at the Scottsdale Arizona Wedding of Russ and Lida La Rose.  We were so fortunate to be involved as their Photographer, Videographers and DJ MC, working together as a team at one of the most enjoyable Scottsdale Arizona Weddings that we have ever participated in.

Electricity was in the air as they arrived at Ancala Country Club and began preparations to be married; so much that not only could the people feel it, but the surroundings also, as it bounced off the walls and even their wedding rings.

The beautiful Bride arrived and began getting ready for her big day.

It clearly worked out well, as the Bride was simply stunning.

With preparations complete, it was time to remind Russ that this was his last chance to run!

Of course he did not.  They were married with love, unity,

and a kiss to seal the deal.

There was time for sunset photos before the sun went down,

Cameron and Robbie, along with associate Stevie, were so happy to be invited to the Wedding of Yesenia and Evan in Fountain Hills to provide photography and videography services.  We had such a great time with them, and are happy to share their wedding here.

The day began with a First Look when Yesi, all dressed up and ready for marriage, had a secret surprise for her handsome fiancé Evan.

He was so excited to find his beautiful Bride, anxious to spend the rest of her life with him.

Actually, they both seemed pretty excited about the whole idea.

But there’s always time to sneak a kiss.

Time to say “I Do” to each other…and really mean it!

Instead of “tying the knot,” they used a lasso.

Then it was off to the Fountain Hills Community Center for the Reception,

Gay Friendly AZ Wedding Vendor

3 Oceans Entertainment is very clear that we are a Gay Friendly AZ Wedding Vendor.  We have always felt this way.  However, one always has to tread carefully when dealing with the media, who as a whole often seem to have one sort of agenda or the other.  Here’s what has been happening with us lately.

Pete Suratos of ABC 15 News in Phoenix contacted me to comment on a new piece he was reporting on concerning SB 1062, the supposedly controversial pending legislation concerning an exemption to allow discrimination.  By “supposedly,” I simply mean that the only real controversy is why this ridiculous bill has not already been given a gubernatorial veto.  The current numbers are somewhere between 70 to 95 % against, so how about a little representation of the will of the people here, huh folks?

Anyway, the “powers that be” in the news room were certainly looking for opposing viewpoints, but just couldn’t find any by airtime, so a little clever editing makes it almost sound like I support the bill.  Enough that I got a phone call the following morning from a producer up the line who asked if that meant I would go on record in support.  Uh, NO…but you can add me to the overwhelming majority of decent people who would never validate another excuse to discriminate and hate.

Still, it was fun to be on the evening news and at least my wife squealed with excitement when she saw her silly husband on TV.  That part was worth it to me right there.  Here’s a link to the news video:

3 Oceans Entertainment on ABC 15 News Phoenix Arizona

In fairness, the reporter kept looking in the right direction after this and asked if I knew anyone who had been directly affected by this so-called religious discrimination.  Why yes, we just worked with a great Phoenix couple who were not only told “no” by a cake baker, but then lectured about their depraved lifestyle, etc.  Rebecca and Molly were very brave to go on TV to discuss this and we are very proud of them.

They got a lot of flak and hateful comments on the internet right away, (of course!) the 24 hour news cycle marched on, and life goes on.

We’ll be working on a new video with Becca and Molly to promote awareness for Anti-Bullying Safety Classes at the Kidzone with the upcoming Phoenix Pride Festival.  Stay tuned for more.

Robbie and I are very happy to be included, and I can’t help a little horn tooting.  It’s just that VERY FEW Wedding vendors can claim this award every single time it’s been presented, right back to the very first one in 2009.  I just have to feel like that’s pretty cool.

Steve and Trisha Cornell Wedding Video Highlights by 3 Oceans Entertainment at Sedona Golf Resort

We were so happy to perform Arizona Wedding Videography and DJ Services for a great couple.  Steve and Trisha Cornell got married in Sedona at Sedona Golf Resort, and 3 Oceans Entertainment was lucky to be there as AZ Wedding DJ and AZ Wedding Videographers.

It was a beautiful sunny day with sunshine as a prevailing theme, with lots of love and laughter.

Our friends SJA Studios were there to Photograph; as always Steven Aquilino did a great job and took good care of the Bride and Groom.  The cake was made by Sedona Sweet Arts and was yummy!  Mountain High Flowers made it beautiful with floral arrangements, and the Officiant was even a treasured friend of the family!  Katie Draxler and her staff at Sedona Golf Resort did such a fantastic job, as they always do, bringing it all together.

3 Oceans Entertainment used a fresh, modern style to showcase Trisha and Steve as a couple, and also our videography style at this very moment, in September of 2013.  Please click on the link through the photo to see a 13 minute sample of the Trisha and Steve’s Sedona AZ Wedding Video, and other videos posted on our 3 Oceans Entertainment YouTube Channel.
