This cold winter’s day Ceremony and Reception brought us to a venue where we haven’t played in a long time, and it was nice seeing it again after renovations. The Ceremony was held inside on the huge dance floor and after the room flip, the Reception followed. The color for this wedding was navy, but there were accents of light pink and gold. The tables had floor-length ivory crinkle satin cloths with navy napkins and were surrounded by chairs with ivory crinkle covers with navy ties. There were three different styles of high/low centerpieces: tall vases with arrangements of pink and ivory flowers, To tie everything together, there were blue Uplights accenting the room. Hayley’s ivory four-tiered cake matched the colors of the day, as it had gold accents on it and pink flowers cascading down one side. Stuart’s chocolate cake matched his interests, as it had a violin on the top.
One fun thing we did at this wedding was the Grand March. If you don’t know what it is, it’s a Czech tradition where two lines of people march around the room intersecting and making tunnels and circles. Eventually, it ends up with the Bride and Groom on the dance floor in the middle of a big circle. They then do their first slow dance together. This Grand March had almost everyone in the room involved and it lasted ten minutes! We later did the Anniversary Dance, and the longest married couple had been married 51 years. We asked them to give advice to the Newlyweds and the husband said, “Do whatever she says” (smart man - haha) and the wife said, “Don’t kill each other.” They got quite a laugh! The Bouquet and Garter came later and then everyone danced until the end.
When the night came to a close, Haley and Stuart enjoyed the Last Dance before running through a shower of bubbles and heading off to their new life as husband and wife. Congratulations Stuart and Hayley!
