Alto Vineyards – Alto Pass, Illinois

Alto Vineyards

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

Alto Vineyards is a family-owned vineyard and winery – in fact, we’re the oldest, most award-winning winery in Southern Illinois.

We started growing grapes in the early 1980’s and our first vintage sold out in under a week in December of 1988. We were the sixth winery registered in Illinois, and we’ve been growing ever since, with over 20 wines in production and 30 years experience.

Completed in 2013, our new Tasting Room is a beautiful 5,000 square foot facility that can accommodate over 150 people.

Alto’s 9+ acre vineyard is nestled in the rolling hills of the Shawnee National Forest and is a beautiful backdrop for any event, especially a wedding!

Osage Nation in Oklahoma Recognizes Marriage Equality

Osage Nation

An Oklahoma-based Native American tribe has voted to approve same-sex marriage. The Osage Nation tribe in northern Oklahoma voted on Monday in a special election to approve same-sex marriage.

As a Native American sovereign state, tribes are not affected by the 2015 Supreme Court ruling in favour of same-sex marriage. 52 percent of people in the special election voted to approve the change of definition of marriage to include same-sex couples.

The results of the election, published by Reuters, means the tribe’s judicial branch can issue marriage licences to same-sex couples.

Ziebro DJ Services was created for these times. It started with a love of music that drove two giddy college students buy their first turntables in 2001.

From humble attempts at beatmixing in their college apartment, they would go on to dj at College Station’s most prominent music festival, host a radio show, be sponsored by EA Sports, and ultimately find their way to hosting the most sacred of events, the wedding ceremony.

Ziebro DJ Services is and always remains committed to one thing: being the best possible dj/mc for your wedding day. That’s why we have existed for 15 years and only have three djs in our crew. That’s why we are 5 star rated no matter which review site you choose. We believe that DJing done well is an art form, and we would love the opportunity to work with you to create an event to remember.

Several elements in our approach set us apart from our competition.Fully customized playlist and event planning – We work for you and we will meet with you as many times as needed to ensure your event is djed and MCed just how you like it. We combine our experience with your vision to craft an itinerary that will keep the dance floor rocking all night long!

Top of the line equipment – We use only the finest names in the industry (Pioneer DDJ-SSX, Serato DJ) to ensure that your music is delivered with clarity and reliability.

WE LOVE WHAT WE DO – We have djed around the state in a huge variety of settings. We have hosted multiple radio shows, held several residencies, and pour tremendous energy into everything we do. Hang out with us and have a great time!
