magic is great wedding reception entertainment

I met with two couples this week who asked me to perform magic at their wedding receptions. One knew they wanted me at their wedding since I performed at a friend’s wedding reception last year.

I love to hear why people want me adding magic to their wedding party. The couple who saw me last year said it really added a lot to the evening. The table they were sitting at was filled with mostly strangers and having me join the group broke the ice and brought a sense of camaraderie to the table.

It was great to get that feedback as I really try to help bring the various people together and get conversations started. That is part of the magic.

I know I am a bit bias, yet I believe really good magic adds much to a wedding. To be fair, a great DJ or band in important too, yet the magician adds a level of intimacy and a personal touch that can make all the difference.

The Montelucia Resort in Paradise Valley has quickly become a premiere wedding venue. It combines both intimacy and sweeping elegance in a resort package most find irresistible.

As a magician who performs at wedding receptions, I find the Montelucia a perfect backdrop for a magical event such as a wedding. The staff is very gracious, the food irresistible and the ambiance

distinctively special.

Here is what a recent groom had to say about his wedding at the Montelucia:

My wife and I were married at Montelucia on November 20th. The scenery was beautiful including the hotel grounds, the Chapel and our banquet room. The service was outstanding and catered to our every wish. Everyone we spoke with gave praise to the staff and the food was simply amazing. Our guests had the best time and still are talking about the hotel. We recommend this experience to anyone that wants to plan a special event that they will never forget.

If you are planning a wedding in the Phoenix or Scottsdale area, look into the Montelucia. Since it is one of the new kids on the resort block, many are unaware this Paradise Valley gem.

If you are looking to add a bit of special entertainment to your wedding, a great idea is the magic of Gene Urban. Gene’s warm, gracious performance style is the perfect addition to make your wedding very special. No wonder he is the choice for weddings in Scottsdale, Hollywood, Santa Barbara, New York and more.

by Gene Urban:

I really like performing magic at wedding receptions, whether they are in Scottsdale, Phoenix or other places across the US. Guests at a wedding are there to have a good time.

Strolling magic is a great entertainment idea at a wedding reception for many reasons:

  • It is a great way to break the ice between people who don’t know each other
  • Many people don’t like to dance and magic keeps them happy and entertained while others gather on the dance floor.
  • Close-up magic is intimate and makes people feel welcome.
  • While the bride and groom are busy trying to catch a moment with each and every guest,  a good magician can keep those waiting feel like they are being cared for.

The true measure of my work as a magician comes from knowing my client is delighted. After a wedding reception I performed at in mid-November I got the sweetest note from the bride and groom. They wrote:

Dear Gene,

Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding. You were so amazing and truly a really fabulous part of the day. Everyone was talking about you and I honestly believe you have special powers! You are definitely a top professional. Thank you,

Reagan & Jarrod

As a performer, notes like this let me know I am on the right track with my work. I love to help make a wedding even more magical.

If you are planning a wedding in Scottsdale, Phoenix , Paradise Valley or any where in the US and Canada, I would be honored to be part of your celebration of love and life.

May you know the magic that is a partner in life and love… Gene

Magic is a very popular entertainment idea for weddings and wedding receptions in much of Europe. We don’t see it as often in the United States though.

If you Googled magicians in England, Ireland and Germany you’d see their web sites focus on the wedding market. So why don’t wedding planners in towns like Scottsdale, Phoenix, Santa Barbara, and Sand Diego hire magicians to entertain guests at wedding receptions?

Perhaps they have not thought of how great magic is the perfect entertainment choice for a wedding. Here are a few reasons the magic of Gene Urban will help make your wedding even more special.

  • Strolling magic is great entertainment for guests waiting for the wedding party to take photos and such. This is usually a down-time for the guests and the bride and groom often feel stressed knowing their guests are just waiting around.
  • Wedding receptions often include people who do not know each other. Close-up magic is the perfect ice breaker and helps bring people together. The bride and groom’s friends and family will be wonderfully entertained.
  • Table side magic is a great way to keep the energy up as guest finish dinner and wait for the festivities that follow. People appreciate the special attention and Gene is amazing at involving your friends is a most magical manner.
  • Strolling magic during the dancing part of a wedding is so appreciated by those who do not like to dance. Older family members and guests simply love the special attention and Gene Urban’s warm style is a perfect fit.

As you can see, the magic and mind reading of Gene Urban is a great entertainment idea for wedding receptions and festivities. Gene Urban is based in the Scottsdale, Phoenix area and available to perform worldwide.

A few words from our brides & wedding planners:

Gene, thank you so much for for making our special day even more special. Our friends were blown away by your magic. You are the best!

Stacey M

Dear Gene. We can’t say enough about what you added to our daughter’s wedding. We didn’t know how to fill the time between the wedding and reception and you were simply amazing. Our friends can’t stop talking about you and we can’t wait to have another party so we can bring you back.

Bob & Shari B.

You have made a believer out of me. I had never used a magician for one of our weddings before, however, the groom was quite insistent we include you;  Now I know why. Your warmth, charm and amazing magic was a fine addition to the evening.
