Allison and Mark’s reception was in the backyard of Allison’s parents. Now that may sound pretty basic, but this yard is amazing! And the bonus…it’s right by my house! The guests arrived around 7:00 and were treated to drinks and food galore and a yard totally decked out by Themeworks and Kelly Odom Flowers. They were totally blown away! When the happy couple arrived, I introduced just the two of them and they joined the cocktail party.
Once they made a few rounds, we went right into their first dance…a first for me “You’re the One” by The Black Keys. What a great choice. Next, Allison danced with her dad to a custom Beatles medley created by our own DJ Randy Bennett. It was perfect! Finally, Mark and his mom danced to “In My Life” also by the Beatles. I played a little more background music while the guests enjoyed the food stations from Ladyfingers Catering, and then it was time to dance. I opened up with some Beach and Oldies and then started to slide into more Top 40 and dance stuff. The party was off the hook! The only pause was to cut the cake, and then right back to the party! The night ended with “I Gotta Feeling”, “Shout”, and finally the new Daft Punk jam “Get Lucky”. What a great party. I’m so happy for Alli and Mark!
