Bonnylin & Matthew were already Mr. & Mrs. Vanwinkle, they’ve been married for months. Saturday night at the Maryland Zoo’s Mansion House, they renewed their vows and celebrated their marriage with a lively reception. Their ceremony began just after 5 pm with music for the Bridal Party & the Bride’s recessional provided by the band Sigur Rós and a recessional to “The Throne Room” from Star Wars. Cocktails and appetizers were served and passed by the staff from Dean and Brown Catering and enjoyed by all. The Zoo’s Animal Ambassadors stopped by for a visit during cocktail hour and shortly after, DJ Frank Marsden invited guests to find a seat, gathered the Bridal Party, and formally introduced them into the reception. Parents, Bridesmaids, and Groomsmen were introduced while the “Cantina Band” from Star Wars was played and Dr. & Dr. Van Winkle entered to “Han Solo & The Princess Theme” from Star Wars. Bonnylin & Matt shared a slow dance to Ingrid Michaelson’s “You & I” before a toast, a blessing, and a buffet style dinner. Following the meal, the dancing portion of the celebration began with David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance”. That was followed by songs requested by the Bride & Groom and their guests by artists like; Kenny Logins, a-ha, Billy Joel, The Animals, Whitney Houston, and many more. It wasn’t a large group, but they sure did party! Before wrapping up a wonderful evening of love, laughter, yummy eats, good music, and lots of fun, DJ Frank played “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen and had everyone singing along. We thank the Zoo’s Staff and the crew with Dean and Brown Catering for the good vibes and hard work and we wish the Vanwinkles a lifetime of happiness!
