We celebrated Denise & Rand’s wedding & reception at the Vandiver Inn Sunday evening! Their ceremony began just after 4 and was followed by pictures, cocktails, appetizers and socializing inside the Inn’s Mansion House. Soon after, guests found their way to the reception area and DJ Frank Marsden officially introduced the Bridal Party and the new Mr. & Mrs. Miller. Rand welcomed and thanked everyone then turned the microphone over to his Best Man who delivered a wonderful toast to the newlyweds. A blessing preceded plated salads and a lovely served meal. Colonel & Mrs. Randolph P. Miller wrapped up the dinner portion of the night by dancing their first dance as husband and wife to “Let’s Make Love” by Tim McGraw & Faith Hill. Rand took a break as his wife danced with her Father next to Heartland’s “I Loved Her First” and then he danced with Denise’s Mother to “Humble and Kind” by Tim McGraw. For a Sunday wedding and a fairly small group, Denise & Rand’s guests and family members partied like it was Friday night! The dance floor was packed throughout the night as DJ Frank Marsden played songs from the Bride & Groom’s request list that included hits by Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Luke Bryan, Earth, Wind & Fire, Selena Gomez and many more. A close friend of the newlyweds serenaded the crowd twice with amazing covers of “At Last” by Etta James, and a version of “Killing Me Softly” by the Fugees. A piñata filled with candy was broken by some of the younger guests to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and a yummy cake baked by Desserts by Rita was cut and enjoyed by all. Just before the end of the night, both the Bride & Groom danced during an apron dance that featured songs by Louis Armstrong, Jackson 5, and Frank Sinatra. Their last dance to “Meant To Be” by Bebe Rexha feat. Florida Georgia Line preceded a grand send off with sparklers, streamers, and bubbles in the front of the Inn. It’s always a pleasure to work with our friends at the Vandiver and as an added treat, we got to work with one of favorite photographers; Pam with Pamela Harvey Photography. Denise & Rand were so much fun to work with from our first meeting through their big send off. Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Miller!
