Fuck coronavirus. Love is bigger.

And it finds a way.

Here's one way: The Huge Little Wedding. Marry as soon as you want to. Unforgettably. Incredibly. And without putting anybody's health at risk.

Invite as many people as you want.

Huge Little Weddings work at any time, from any place: Keep your original wedding venue, go on Zoom, or say "I dos" in a canoe. Your wedding can be utterly upscale, or totally offbeat. It's truly up to you.

No matter what you make it, we'll help structure it and share it so that ALL the people you love can participate. Guests don’t just watch: They make toasts. They play games. They share in conversations.

They attend. They celebrate WITH you.

From anywhere. On any schedule.

No risks; just relationships. No masks; just memories.

DJ Derek was the best! From our first consultation meeting to the last song of our wedding day, he was professional, knowledgeable, upbeat, and fun. He took our musical tastes into consideration and crafted a unique and memorable soundtrack for dinner. And during the rest of the reception, he stayed attuned to the crowd's tastes while also staying true to our Must Play list. He was also a wonderful MC, keeping the entire event flowing smoothly and keeping us all on schedule. We could not have asked for a better DJ, and we would highly recommend Backthird Audio to anyone!

kept the party going!

Backthird did an amazing job at our wedding! We used a pop strings trio for the ceremony, and a DJ for the cocktails/dinner/dancing. The planning process was so easy with the online portal, and they were always quick to respond to any emails. Our DJ Scott did an amazing job at keeping the dance floor alive - I'm pretty sure the dance floor was full from the second it opened to the very end! We can't say enough good things about our experience!

Best wedding music ever

First of all, Backthird is incredibly easy to work with. They are responsive and kind and always willing to answer questions. We had live piano for our ceremony and cocktail hour, played by Louise Kelly. Louise did a beautiful job. The ceremony songs brought tears to my eyes, they were so perfect. Our DJ for dinner/reception was Scott Krema, as well as his assistant Ramsey. The music choices, the entire night, were perfect. Scott kept people dancing which is always the goal. And near the end of the night, he surprised us and played a Christmas song, which if you knew me, you’d know is the way to my heart. It was absolutely perfect. He listened to what we wanted and truly delivered. I can’t thank him enough for the incredible work he did.
