Weddings and beer…two of our favorite things mixed together made for an excellent wedding show, Wedtoberfest! The event was held at Artifact Events in the Ravenswood District of Chicago. We were honored to be selected to be a part of the show curated by founders of Naturally Yours Events and Indiewed. Here are a few images that captured this fun fall event!

Every year we look forward to joining the Green Wedding Alliance for the Committed Wedding Show. This year’s event happened last Sunday and had a great time meeting and mingling with brides and grooms to be! Tyler Huffman DJed that afternoon to guests at Greenhouse Loft with lots of vinyl thrown in! Here are a few photos from the day.

We are excited to share Lauren and Jordan’s wedding on the blog today! They were married at the end of December at the Revolution Brewery Taproom. Before we headed to the venue for their ceremony and reception we took their wedding party to the warm indoor location of Chicago’s Union Station for a photo session. The flowers by Fab Flora were stunning. The food and drinks by Revolution did not disappoint! Here are a few of our favorite shots from the day.

We are excited to share some very important news! Cage and Aquarium entered a recent partnership with Scratch Events, a nationwide DJ company based in New York. Scratch Events was founded by two men: Rob Principe (the CEO presently) and late, great Jam Master Jay of RUN DMC, and we are beyond excited about the creative lineage of our new partners. Cage and Aquarium will continue under the direction of Tyler Huffman and Shelley Anderson, but we will have a much larger pool of resources, talent, event management tools and connections within the field.

We are still in charge of all things at C+A, so expect “business as usual” with some added benefits exclusive to our staff and clients. Some of the benefits include stronger event oversight, full access to the Scratch DJ Academy for new staff training and continuing education for veteran DJs, and additional planning resources for clients among other resources.

The photography division of Cage and Aquarium has grown tremendously over the last three years. Shelley is excited to continue to lead a team of photographers for weddings, events and other opportunities.

We are very excited to share this information with you! Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. Shelley and Tyler can be reached by email at office (at) cageandaquarium (dot) com.
