We Hired A Magician for Our Wedding!
What better way to infuse a little magic into your wedding than to actually infuse some magic into your wedding!
No I haven’t gone crazy, trust me!
As my hubby and I planned the details for our wedding, we couldn’t help but feel more and more excited. But what good would it be if we were the only ones having fun, where’s the magic in that?
Like Cinderella’s ball, our wedding had to touch everyone in a way that they would not forget.
We racked our brains to find a way to stand out from the wedding crowd and that’s when it came to us, what could be more magical than an illusionist, a wizard, a real magician!
Introducing to you all, Alexander the great, magician and sleight of hand extraordinaire from Meta Illusions!
Now click to enter the magical realm of our Secret Garden Fairytale wedding!
While planning our wedding we knew there would be a lull after our solemnization up until the start of the actual dinner. Both Bobby and I would be getting ready for our grand march-in so we would not be able to receive or entertain our guests.
We all know how it can feel as guests at a wedding, waiting to be seated and for the festivities to begin.
Sure canapés would be served during this time, but it would be nice to have something else entertain our guests to keep the tempo up and keep interests piqued for our big entrance. And thus the idea of having a magician at the wedding was born.
Through some rabid googling, we found Meta Illusions and Alexander. A few email exchanges later and I found myself discussing in person the fine details of my wedding plans.
Alexander was a gentleman from the start. He was immediately excited by the theme and scope of my wedding and there’s nothing better than meeting someone as excited, passionate and motivated as you are.
After a few live demos, my mind was literally blown! This guy was the real deal! Think David Blaine, Chris Angel, Cyril Takayama, etc. Alexander was able to perform cool, up close and personal magic and sleight of hand the likes of which you would normally only see on TV. This was no children’s party magician; this was magic of the highest order!
To make things more exciting, he was even able to tailor some of the tricks to be in line with the theme of our wedding! Wow, I was really amazed I tell you!
Come our actual wedding day, even though everything else was running late, Alexander wasn’t, furthermore he actually came early which turned out to be something of a godsend. As tensions were running high, Alexander’s cool and calm demeanor helped to calm everyone down.
Fluent in English, Chinese and various dialects, he was able to entertain everyone, young and old alike.
He was so captivating that even our emcees were distracted from their duties, almost delaying our march-in.
I would later have family and friends telling me how enthralled they were by his performance, some even requested his contact details for events and parties of their own.
We asked Alexander to stay on after his allotted performance for dinner and to enjoy the rest of the evening socially. What we weren’t expecting is that Alexander would go above and beyond the call of duty to entertain our guests opportunistically throughout the entire wedding to the evenings close.
A true gentleman, professional and magician extraordinaire, our only regret was not being able to see his mind-blowing illusions for ourselves.
Needless to say, we can’t recommend Alexander’s skills and services enough.
If you still can’t believe how great Alexander’s magic tricks were, check out these video reviews from our wedding guests:
I really do feel blessed that everything turned out so perfect and magical, both for myself and for my guests.
