Last night, under the full moon, Cassie & Joel celebrated falling in love by throwing an amazing party at Swan Harbor Farm in Havre de Grace, MD. No rain, blue skies, and cooler temperatures during the day made for a wonderful outdoor ceremony behind the Farm’s Mansion House with a beautiful view of the Chesapeake Bay. The recessional to Pharrell William’s “Happy” preceded a cocktail hour with friends and family members enjoying drinks and appetizers inside the Mansion House and on the back lawn. After cocktails, DJ Frank Marsden lined up the Bridal Party for formal introductions. Parents of the Bride & Groom entered in to Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars “Uptown Funk”, the Bridal Party were brought in while “Classic” by The Kooks played. The new Mr. & Mrs. Gerson entered in to “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers & Coldplay. The Bride’s Mother welcomed everyone prior to guests being invited to enjoy a tasty buffet provided by the nice folks from Eleven Courses Catering & Event Company. After dinner, friends of the Bride & Groom raised a toast to the happy couple before DJ Frank invited them to dance their first dance to “Into The Mystic” by Van Morrison. Cassie and her Father followed that with a dance to “Here Comes The Sun” by The Beatles and then Joel and his Mother danced to “Have I Told You Lately” by Van Morrison. A cake cutting to “All You Need Is Love” by The Beatles led into a packed dancefloor with Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling” starting things off. DJ Frank fielded and played requests for songs by artists such as Drake, The Bee Gees, Usher, 2 Pac, Redbone, Lou Bega, Hall & Oates and many more. Married couples enjoyed an Anniversary Dance to “When I’m Sixty-Four” by The Beatles and “You Send Me” by Sam Cooke before moving on to the final hour of the celebration, where the Bride tossed her bouquet to the single ladies while DJ Frank played Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”. The night’s festivities ended with “Wagon Wheel” by Old Crow Medicine Show and “Closing Time” by Semisonic. The weather was perfect, the food tasty, the guests festive and the Bride & Groom madly in love. Last night rocked and we owe it all to Cassandra & Joel Gerson!
