I was back to The Merrimon Wynne House again for another wedding this weekend, this time for Molly & Chip on August 4th. They are so nice and both Dentists.
The ceremony was held inside the carriage house and I was there to provide mics and music. The room looked beautiful with floral arrangements by Brides & Bouquets! The Grandparents and Parents entered to “How Deep The Father’s Love For Us”. The Bridesmaids entered to “Canon In D” and Molly to a cover of “A Thousand Years” by violinist Jun Sung Ahn. After a short service that included a reading, they recessed to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” and the 175 guests were invited into the house for cocktails.
After pics were done by Melissa Delorme and video by Thomas Blake Films, planner Jessica from Happily Ever After invited guests back to the carriage house for the reception. I introduced the wedding party to “Levels” by Avicii and Molly & Chip to “Space Jam”. LOL!! They came in for their first dance to “Forever Like That” by Ben Rector. After the wedding party took their seats Molly had her dance with her Father to “Never Alone”. Chip and his Mother’s dance followed to “Like Jesus Does”. Molly’s Father welcomed everyone and blessed the meal. The plated salads came out and the Rocky Top buffet opened shortly. During dinner, I played a mix of rock, country, and classic soul.
After dinner, we had the toasts and cake cutting to “How Sweet It is”. I opened the floor with some beach, Motown, and Top 40 that filled it for the next hour and a half. We paused for Chip’s past baseball team to “retire” his jersey and then dance to “Danza Kuduro”. So great!! I even got to play a short 2010’s hip-hop mix that kept the energy way high!! They danced hard until the last dance to “Carolina” by Eric Church. They all made a big circle and sang it to Molly & Chip who was in the middle. Everyone went to the front of the house for a sparkler exit.
Thank you so much for everything Molly, Chip. Jessica and Kaila
