Ruben and Amanda were married on a gorgeous day at Boone Hall Plantation in front of the large house and then moved over to the Cotton Dock for their reception. I was waiting there with music as they arrived. Once everyone made their way out to the dock, I started the intros and everyone danced in to the summer’s big song “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke. The crowd went wild as Amanda and Ruben finally made their way out. At that point, they went into their first dance “Here & Now” by Luther Vandross. Next I passed them the mic so that they could welcome everyone and then I asked the guests to be seated for dinner. The food stations were all incredible (I may have tested out a couple of them).
Once everyone got their fill of great food, three people gave very heartwarming toasts and then Amanda and Ruben cut their cake as I played “All You Need Is Love” in the background. After they smeared each other’s noses with blue icing (LOL), Amanda and her dad danced to Kenny Rogers’ “Through the Years” and Ruben and his mom danced to “What a Wonderful World”. After those formal dances, it was time to party, and I ran through some great requests that I had gotten from the couple-everything from Mumford to David Bowie to Top 40 hits. It was a great mix. The only stops were for the bouquet (“Come and Get It”-Selena Gomez) and the garter toss (“James Bond Theme”). As the night came to a close, tons of Chinese lanterns were passed out, lit, and set free. It was an excellent ending to a perfect day. I have to say that the ladies from Viva L’Event did a fantastic job (as usual) of planning and designing a memorable wedding. Also on hand were Jonathan and Cara of F8 Photo Studios. I can’t wait to see their images. And finally, from GA, The Munn Brothers did videography. A great team pulled off another great wedding!
