Kelly & Adam became Mr. & Mrs. Barowy yesterday at the Vandiver Inn. It was a perfect afternoon in Havre de Grace to celebrate a marriage and celebrate they did! One of my favorites, Reverend David Flaherty (a “rockstar” officiant!) married the happy couple, cocktails flowed, dinner was amazing and a cake by Deserts by Rita capped things off. John Legend’s “All of Me” was the song that Kelly & Adam chose for their first dance as husband and wife and Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” was chosen as their last song to end the festivities. The party crowd headed to MacGregor’s Restaurant along the waters edge after that. Great day for a wedding!
It was a beautiful evening for a wedding and a chilly night for a reception at Swan Harbor Farm. No worries, Mr. & Mrs. Rubin and their guests started dancing before dinner even ended…and they never stopped! Jenna & Mike selected Anthony Hamilton’s “Dear Life” from the Step Up soundtrack for their first dance and ended with John Legend’s “All of Me”. In between the bride and groom and their family and friends kept the dance floor packed grooving to everything from old-school Michael Jackson to “Fancy” by Iggy Izalea. An excellent meal provided by Dean and Brown Catering, flowers by Amanda’s Florist and photos by Annabelle Dando Photography contributed to making this night perfect. Great party!
Kate & Phillip held their ceremony and reception at Swan Harbor Farm in Havre de Grace last night. They invited a big group (nearly 170 guests) and I’d say all of them were on the dance floor at one point in the night. Mr. & Mrs. Hooker danced their first dance as a married couple along with their beautiful little girl Evelyn to “Oh Love” by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. Guests wined and dined to an amazing meal provided by Jason & Julie’s hard working staff from Sterling Caterers. The night ended with all the guests surrounding the bride and groom and dancing along to John Legend’s “All of me”. Magical night!
I wrapped up an awesome Memorial Day/Wedding Weekend in Havre de Grace last night with Allison & Michael’s wedding and reception at the beautiful Vandiver Inn. Mr. & Mrs. Walsh exchanged vows and then celebrated with their friends and family. The bride and groom are both big-time music fans and I loved working with them to create an original and unique blend of tunes for their cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. Their playlist ranged from G. Love & Special Sauce to John Lee Hooker to Stevie Wonder. Their first dance as husband and wife was Otis Redding’s “These arms of mine” and they ended their Sunday wedding with “A Sunday kind of love” by Etta James…perfect! The celebration wrapped up with a sparkler send off and an after party in downtown Havre de Grace.
Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Halligan. Last nights wedding reception at Bulle Rock was a full on party! Allison & Tim picked some awesome music for their cocktail hour (Foo Fighters, Johnny Cash and Coldplay just to name a few) and then gave me free reign musically to get their friends and family jumpin’ on the dance floor…and they did! Great party, great crowd, such good energy!
Last night Rachel & Joel held their ceremony and reception at the Vandiver Inn in Havre de Grace. I provided the music for both and they kept it short and sweet. I’d say their “I do’s” lasted 3 minutes if that! These folks wanted to get hitched and party and they did! I received a call from the coordinator at the Vandiver Thursday night telling me that the bride had been involved in a car accident just after leaving the wedding rehearsal. For a few hours everyone was on pins and needles. Luckily she’s a tough cookie and was just fine and danced the entire evening. They invited such a fun group of people filled with positive energy and I fed off that all night. Good vibes!
Yesterday at Swan Harbor Farm in Havre de Grace, Lindsay & Matt had a beautiful outdoor ceremony and reception. I was lucky enough to work with Dean & Brown Catering for the second time in one weekend as they provided a delicious meal as always for the guests. The bride and groom danced for their first time as husband and wife to Kip Moore’s “Pretty Girl” and then the party followed. Their friends and family danced like it was Saturday night! What a great way to wrap up a awesome wedding weekend.
Katie & Rob became Mr. & Mrs. Dickson yesterday and then threw an amazing reception at Rockfield Manor in Bel Air, MD. They started in the barn behind Rockfield with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and then headed up to the main house for dinner and dancing. Katie & Rob danced their first dance as husband and wife to “Feels Like Home” by Chantal Kreviazuk and then guests of all ages filled the dance floor and an awesome party followed. Pairings Bistro provided a top-notch meal for everyone. What a great evening!
