Perfect! I couldn鈥檛 of asked for a better couple to help with our big day!

I loved the duo of husband and wife! They both were very sweet and professional! They made sure to pay attention to all the details and were flexible as things changed on our big day. They kept the vibe going throughout the night and Skip even came out and danced with us! I loved booking with Northern Lights Entertainment! I highly recommend them for your next event!

Amazing DJ Service!!

Skip did our 25th Wedding Anniversary party, and he was amazing!!! He took the time to chat with me on the phone about everything, and even offered to meet in person if we wanted to. He made sure to thoroughly explain his questionnaire, as well as make note regarding any type of music or artist we didn't want played. Once I returned the questionnaire, he right away contacted me for a few clarifications. Skip was so on top of it!! Very professional!! When we arrived, he was all set up and ready to go. He stayed in touch with me all evening about any questions he had, and was so thoughtful in his music selections!! 100% would recommend Northern Lights to everyone!!

Easy going and professional

Skip and Laurie were wonderful to work with! We met several times in person to discuss music and the wedding day over coffee which ended up being a great time to get to know them! With all of the experience they brought to the table, our wedding day was kept on track and we didn't miss a beat! The music was great, everyone had a good time, we recommend Skip and Laurie for any event!

Team

Skip Westmoreland
Skip Westmoreland
COO/DJ/Minister

Skip started the business with his wife, Laurie. He has over 8 years of experience planning, coordinating, and performing at rehearsals, weddings, and receptions, in addition to birthday and gradaution parties. He has a love for what he does that many do not. He is our only full-time DJ and does not do it as a hobby. He is licensed as a DJ, entertainer, and ordained minister, and is also an amateur photographer/videographer and seconds for his wife, Laurie, in their photography business. He is a former IT professional and does all the editing for their photography. Skip just doesn't DJ your wedding. He gets involved every step of the way from booking to the end of the reception and treats his couples as friends, not just clients. He strives to exceed expectations at each and every wedding, attempting to always get as close to a "perfect" day for you as humanly possible.

Laurie Westmoreland
Laurie Westmoreland
CEO/Photographer

Laurie started the business with her husband and DJ, Skip. Together, they strive to be the best in the business, constantly honing and improving their skills to exceed their clients' expectations. She assists Skip in his weddings and performs the basic video recording for him when she is not the photographer.

Laurie founded Star-Crossed Photography, LLC, with her husband, who acts as a second at their weddings. Laurie has always loved photography, and a few years after Northern Lights Entertainment was founded, she began doing some photography at some of the weddings Skip was the DJ. After being the sole photographer at three weddings in 2017 and 2018, she began to study professional wedding photography. In 2019, the business was incorporated and all the professional equipment was purchased. She continued to study over the winter off-season and began booking for 2020.

Of course, 2020 was a horrible year, and all her weddings cancelled or rescheduled except one. She is looking forward to helping Skip and Northern Lights fulfill the dreams of couples and their special days by photographing many weddings to come in the future.
