I was so thrilled to play Jessica and Ben’s Wedding at The Carolina Inn on May 20th, 2016! They are the nicest couple and have been together forever.
I provided music for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception for the 100 guests. As guests arrived for the ceremony I had light classical music playing. After a short ceremony performed by Ben’s Grandfather that included a sand ceremony, the guests made their way to the hallway in front of the Chancellor’s ballroom for cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres. During the cocktails hour I had a mix of soft rock, classic soul and country playing.
The doors to the ballroom opened and guests made their way to their seats. I introduced the wedding party and Jessica and Ben came to the floor for their first dance. Ben’s Mother then welcomed everyone followed by the blessing and toasts. The salads and entrées came out and I continued the same music mix as cocktails.
After dinner we had the cake cutting, parents dances and anniversary dance with the winners being 51 years married! I opened the floor with beach music and Motown that filled it for the next 1 ½ hours. During dancing I played top 40, 70’s, a few line dances and ballads. We paused briefly for the bouquet toss to “Haven’t Met You Yet” by Michael Buble and garter toss to “Hot In Herre” by Nelly, then back to dancing.
We ended the night with “Save The Last Dance For Me” by Michael Buble and guests made their way to the front for a bubble machine exit.
This was one of my favorite weddings, and not one I, or the guests, will soon forget!
Thank you again Jessica and Ben and Happy Birthday Ben!
