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.
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:
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.
Cameron Carpenter of 3 Oceans Entertainment was there at the end of summer Luau pool party at the historic San Marcos Resort in Chandler Arizona. Along with Walt Richardson, they provided some “jammin’ tunes” for the enjoyment of the guests of Crowne Plaza San Marcos Golf Resort, plus anyone else who wanted to come hang out at the pool and have a good time.
The fantastic staff at the San Marcos were stellar as usual. They created yummy traditional luau fare, had the gazebo bar stocked up and providing refreshment, and had the pool sparkling and the tub tub cozy and inviting. With a poolside bar and great food right there, what more could a person ask for?
Walt would play a couple of great sets during the day, and when he got too hot and tired, he’d take a break and Arizona Event DJ Cameron would take over the sounds of the party. It was a momentous afternoon!
The best part, was that San Tan Brewery came by with some great drink specials on ice cold beer. An outstanding crowd favorite was “Mr. Pineapple”, an incredible pineapple wheat beer described by the folks at SanTan as:
“A stylish wheat with a tropical personality, infused with fresh pineapple juice from Fair Trade Costa Rican farms, takes traditional wheat beer and adds some seriously cool character.”
We’re looking forward to Brad and Kim’s upcoming wedding in the East Valley of the Sun. We had such a nice time meeting with them about their nuptials that they decided to get together beforehand for some Arizona family photography with their kids. As they both have children from previous marriages, it was a great opportunity to witness the healing of broken families during their creation of a new blended one.
We met at The Riparian Preserve At Water Ranch in Gilbert, AZ to begin our photo session. Even though it’s a water conservation and wetland habitats preserve, it just wouldn’t be our home in Arizona without the mighty Saguaro cactus.
We spent a lovely couple of hours getting to know everyone. They got a number of photos as a result, and here are a few more of them.
