Spotlight Events Puts Couples At Forefront Of Wedding Celebrations

By Kelly Church

With 25 years in the business, Spotlight Events is a team of entertainers that host weddings, corporate parties and other events. The Madison, WI company can officiate weddings, provide music, videography, décor and their signature feature the Spotlight Personal Love Story.

One of the owners and entertainers, Greg Ostrowsky, said he and his partner Russell had worked for many other similar companies over the years before connecting through a mutual friend. After realizing they had similar philosophies in life and business, they formally started Spotlight Events in 2016.

"We are very proud that in our very first year of business, we not only earned the Best of Weddings award from The Knot, but also earned the Couples Choice award from Wedding Wire," Ostrowsky said. "We have worked tirelessly to shine in five areas."

Ostrowsky listed these five areas as: music mixing, master of ceremonies, event planning, ceremony officiating and personalized milestone dances. Their specialty is what they have dubbed the Spotlight Personalized Love Story. During this presentation, the newlyweds enjoys their first dance as a married couple with their family and friends surrounding them on the dance floor. During their dance, a voice-over plays, with the groom describing how the couple met and the bride detailing the proposal.

Both Ostrowsky and his partner are ordained wedding officiants. Ostrowsky said each of them has their own style, and takes the couple's preferences into consideration when planning to perform the ceremony. Both officiants prefer to perform wedding ceremonies that reflect their own personal religious beliefs, but are willing and able to perform other types of ceremonies as well.

"We are passionate about weddings," Ostrowsky said. "On the singular day, couples commit to a lifetime of loving each other while surrounded by people who love them. Not only is this a once-in-a-lifetime event, it is an event that is all about love."

Ostrowsky said that it is important, when hiring an entertainer for a wedding reception, that a couple only has one wedding day, and the focus should be on the newlyweds. Spotlight Events wants to work with each couple as their partner, not just another wedding vendor, to help make their wedding day special and go off without a hitch.

"[Wedding days are] not about the flowers, or the food, or the cake, and it certainly is not about the DJ," Ostrowsky said. "These all enhance the event, of course, but it's the love in the room that defines the day and makes it memorable. We want your guests to feel that love; to sing and dance all night and then breathlessly thank you for inviting them to the best wedding ever."
