Sarah and Travis wanted to have a beautiful ceremony and reception on Travis’s father’s horse farm in Chapel Hill. But, hurricane Joaquin had other ideas. It had rained for the week coming up, so a couple tents were needed. No problem. The ceremony was officiated by Sarah’s Grandfather and it was so sweet! As the guests arrived I had some light classical music playing. The Grandparents and Travis’s Mother walked down the aisle to “Jesu, Joy Of Man’s Desiring” and the wedding party to “Canon In D”. Sarah walked down the aisle with both parents to “Air On A G String”. After the ceremony the wedding party recessed to “Water Music” (Not because of the rain) and the 100 guests made their way to the connecting tent for hors d’oeuvres and drinks while the main tent got ready for dinner and dancing.
During the cocktail hour, I played a mix of indie rock, standards, alt-country, Motown and blues. A very eclectic mix I must say! After pics were taken by photographer Heba Salama, I invited guests back into the main tent for the introductions. The wedding party was introduced to “Fergilicious” and Sarah & Travis to “Celebration”. They came to the floor and had their first dance to Zapp’s “I Want To Be Your Man”, one of Travis’s favorite songs and he sang it to her while dancing. So sweet! Sarah was then joined on the floor by her Dad for their dance to “My Wish” and Travis escorted him mother to the floor for their dance to “You’ve Got A Friend” by James Taylor. Sarah’s Grandmother Elise blessed the meal and the Fig & Honey catered buffet opened. It was so good!!
After dinner we had a cake cutting to “How Sweet It Is” and I opened the floor with “The Cupid Shuffle” that filled it for the next 3 hours. I played everything from oldies to 80’s to current hits. I even played “Proud Mary” for Sarah’s bridesmaid to show her Tina Turner moves…twice..
I love this crown so much! They danced to everything and had a absolute blast! Of course, the jars of moonshine may have helped J. Thank you Sarah & Travis and congratulations!
