The Wedding of Mitch and Kim Bliven


Friday  July 20th~

Mitch and Kim Bliven

The Valley House, Hudson, Wisconsin

(sorry for the formatting issues…we are working on it as we speak!)

  Open Bar Entertainment was honored to be a part of Mitch and Kim’s wedding reception!! We were at The Valley House in Hudson, WI, and after a beautiful ceremony and dinner the wedding party and their guests were ready to rock.  AND ROCK WE DID!    Here are a few highlights (but you need to add your own at the end of this!)


We started the night by introducing the wedding party and the parents of Mitch and Kim.  At the end of the night Scotty informed me that I read ALL of the couples in the wrong order!  OOPS.  Way to roll with the punches wedding party.

The other highlight was when Kim stumbled when trying to land her dramatic pose at the front of the stage.  But we won’t even mention that…wait we just did.  Ooops again.


We had two delivered at the reception.  One by Charolette, and the other by Nathan.  Nathan’s was hilarious as he rehashed the story of Mitch (as a kid)  telling Nathan’s mom that although he would like to dance with her at his wedding when he grew up he was certain she wouldn’t still be living at that point.


There is so many here…where do I even begin.   Ummm…Shelly the “Thriller Queen” for starters.  Trenton the mohawk master.   The wonderfully long lines for the dollar dance (all money going to Mitch and Kim’s honeymoon in Breezy Point).  Swing dancing mania.    So many more.   Share yours by commenting below.

All in all it was a wonderful night, and Scotty and I felt proud that we were able to help create a wedding reception that will be remembered for a long time to come.

Stay in Touch with Open Bar Entertainment

Lots of people came up to us asking how they can stay in touch… Here are my thoughts on that. #1.  Facebook.  Click here to go directly to our fan page.  We just started this, and could use some love to boost our numbers!   #2. Get on our mailing list.  Simply e-mail me at and I’ll make sure you get on the list.  Every month or so we blog on different topics, and you will be sent an e-mail when there’s an update.   #3.  Make sure we are at the next wedding you attend.  Do you know there’s a referral bonus for anyone who helps connect us with future couples?   It’s true.  Alex Wakefield is the happy recipient for this wedding as she started the conversation with us many months back!  

DVD of the Reception!!

If you are interested in having your own DVD of the reception including pictures, music, and video…you can purchase one for $20.  Let us know, and once it’s created, will ship it out to and you can send us a check or go through Paypal.    A great gift for parents, relatives, or anyone else who would like to relive the night for years to come.

      Thanks for the kind words Lisa! We absolutely should talk about getting down to FL!! Someone told me they lived in Orlando…same people or no? If so I could parlay it into a family vacation. Bottom line we would be open to the idea!
