Megan and Spencer’s ceremony took place behind the Fearrington House restaurant this past Saturday on an unusually hot Fall day. I handled the sound for the ceremony, so I was there bright and early for a noon ceremony. I will say, even though it was hot, this was an amazing ceremony. They had a husband and wife singing their music, and they were awesome. Their hand-written vows were perfect! It really was a special one, and of course, the sound went off without a hitch! Whew!
The guests then made their way around to the Garden Terrace part of Fearrington for an outdoor reception. I introduced the rather large wedding party to Jack Johnson’s “Better Together” and then Spencer and Megan went into their first dance “Next to Me” by Sleeping at Last. I had never heard it, but loved it! Megan’s father welcome everyone and blessed the food, and the guests made their way through an amazing brunch buffet. After brunch, Megan and her dad danced to “Butterfly Kisses” sung by one of their friends, John Sierra. I will have to say, best version of that song I’ve ever heard! Well done! Spencer and his mother then danced to “How Sweet It Is” by Marvin Gaye. Next on the agenda was a surprise for Megan’s parents. They just celebrated 33 years of marriage and never got a chance to do a first dance…so we did it on Saturday to Nilsson’s “Without You”. It was definitely a special moment. I played a few Motown songs and then moved into the cake cutting (“1,2,3,4” by Plain White Ts) and then several members of the bridal party gave short but sweet toasts. I played a few more songs, and had a little dancing before the finale which was Megan tossing her bouquet (“Ladies Night” by Kool and the Gang) and then their last dance where everyone joined in to Train’s “Marry Me”. The departure was awesome! Megan changed into a cute white dress, they hopped on a tandem, and rode off through the crowd all cheering. What a great day, and I’m happy I was a part of it!
