Waukegan's Wonderous Wedding!

SSE hit the road and traveled south into Lake County, for a fantastic wedding at Saddle Ridge Banquets in Waukegan!  Greg & Nicole enjoyed a wonderful afternoon reception, and the dance floor was packed for the party!  After our portion of the festivities was complete, our bride and groom still had the rest of the evening to celebrate with family and friends.  A special thanks to Greg’s brother Steve and his wife Alicia for all their help.  We were honored to celebrate at their wedding reception several years ago, and it was great to be back with their wonderful families.  Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Z!

Mark’s Fabulous 50th!

Family, friends, and neighbors celebrated Mark’s 50th with a bodacious backyard bash!  It’s hard to keep a surprise like this under wraps, but Michelle did a great job of shocking her hubby, and throwing one unforgettable party!  Once dinner wrapped up, we didn’t waste any time breaking out the karaoke, and we sang and danced the night away.  If your Father-In-Law happens to live a few miles from the location of your show…and he just happens to text and tell you to turn up the great tunes he’s hearing…you know you’re at a great party!  BIG thanks to Mark & Michelle…SSE is Rockin’ The Suburbs!

Tony's Fantastic 40th!

SSE’s outdoor summer celebrations continue, and we went "whole hog" on this one!  Tony celebrated his 40th birthday with family and friends, and what a happening it was.  The fun was spread out over 6 acres, with a bouncy house for the kids, games for the adults, and the star of the show…a slow-roasted whole hog on the spit!  It takes a lot of work to pull an event like this together, including the surprise arrival of Tony’s friend who traveled by train to join us!  Big thanks to Brenda and her family, the folks from Apple Holler, and everyone who partied with our guest of honor all night long.  ‘Just country boys and girls gettin’ down on the farm!’

A.N.G.E.L.S. Take Flight!

SSE joined A.N.G.E.L. at Skydive Midwest for a charity fundraiser, and we aimed high!  Brave jumpers of all experience levels took to the skies on a sunny Saturday to help raise funds for the Autism Network through Guidance, Education & Life.  Multiple merchandise booths, fantastic grub fresh off the grill, and terrific tunes kept all in attendance busy during this special event!  Special thanks to Cindy and her crew, and the whole staff at Skydive Midwest for taking the leap!
