Rachel & Donald’s Wedding + Reception at The Vandiver Inn

What a great party! Rachel & Donald’s wedding + reception last night at the Vandiver Inn was way more then your usual celebration. Guests came ready to eat, drink and dance! Following an outdoor ceremony officiated by their good friend J.R. Gregory, the new Mr. & Mrs. Spangler led their guests into the Vandiver Mansion for an hour of great eats and libations. We introduced the bridal party formally into the Vandiver pavilion for dinner and a party and the newlyweds made their grand entrance being escorted by their son Kellan to Slipknot’s “Before I Forget”. After introductions the groom’s brother, the bride’s best friend and the bride’s sister offered up ¬†unforgettable toasts for Rachel & Donald. As always, Chef Susan prepared an amazing meal for everyone and after that Mr. & Mrs. Spangler danced their first dance as a married couple to “Always and Forever” by The Green. A Father/Daughter dance and a Grandmother/Son dance came next and then the party started. Photographers Morgan and Everett of Versatography captured all the fun as guests danced and sang along to hits by artists like Run DMC, Wilson Phillips, Skrillex, The Backstreet Boys, Jay Z, TLC and more. Just as we started an 80’s set and Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl”…no power! The town of Havre de Grace went black and the electric went completely out! Liz, one of the Vandiver’s two wedding coordinators handled the situation like a rock star. Within minutes she and the hardworking staff at the Inn had a generator up and running and the party continued. We closed out a night full of fun and memories with the song “Cerveza” by Ballyhoo! That song seemed appropriate since the Groom is the drummer for Ballyhoo! and his bandmates were all there to lead the crowd as they sang their way out the door. Last night was so much fun and we were lucky to be surrounded by such positive people and good vibes. Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Spangler!
