Man, even with the first heatwave of the summer, Jenny and Eric’s wedding at Duke Gardens was perfect from start to finish. The bride and bridesmaids looked beautiful thanks to Posh Salon, even with that heat! Bombadil was the ceremony band, they are truly amazing! I was blown away at the love in the air as Eric’s older brother served as Jenny and Eric’s officiant.
Cocktail hour was held on the lawn, with delicious hors d’oeuvres and drinks served for all. Dinner commenced under the tent, with Soigne Events catering. Man the food was so good! I introduced the beautiful couple as they started their first dance to “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds. The smiles amongst the family and friends were pretty great to witness. The bride and her father danced to “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstong while the mother and her son danced to “How Deep is the Ocean” by Barbra Streisand & Jason Gould.
Afterwards, the buffet opened up and I played light music while everyone ate and socialized. Toasts were done by parents and friends and then the cake cutting was done followed by a second ‘first dance’ to “Despacito” for the bride and groom. With Eric being a 4-time Grammy winning jazz producer, I made sure to make the wedding music award winning for them. The party went on until close to midnight with a range of music keeping everyone on the dance floor.
I had such a good time being a part of their wedding. Congrats Jenny & Eric!
