Want to know what we really, truly loved about Barbara & Scott’s wedding? They really did it exactly how they wanted to do it and it turned out perfectly amazing and everything they could have asked for! We met Barbara about one year before their wedding date. Barbara was a general manager at a local hotel that we do a lot of events at so the pressure was on us!
The wedding day was beyond perfect. Sunny and dry yet a cool breeze is an amazing wedding day at a venue that really accentuates the outdoor space. The ceremony setting right by the pond and directly across from the reception site was very picturesque. They chose ceremony songs that were traditional but contemporary remakes which is perfect. Check out all of the amazing photos by our friend Megan with Megan Kime Photography. Kathi at Morris Peaceland Farm and her team are so hands on and wonderful to work with. It is so nice to work at a venue where the owners truly put their heart and soul into each event. After Scott & Barbara’s ceremony, everyone moved to the barn for cocktails and tunes to upbeat contemporary music like Ray LaMontagne. A very funny grand entrance with the ol’ ball and chain was quickly followed by the first dance, father/daughter then mother/son dances. We opened dinner with a welcome by Barbara’s Dad and a blessing by Scott & Barbara’s daughter Savannah. Check out the photos of the welcome, blessing and also the after-dinner speeches using our trademark vintage mic!
To open up the dance floor, we started with a special dance with Scott and the girls which immediately gave way to a surprise ‘Watch Me Whip’ performance by Scott! The guests loved it and the dance floor was packed immediately and all night long. This was such a fun group! The couple held off on choosing a last song of the night on purpose because they wanted to choose just before. We decided on ‘One’ by Metallica of course. And, of course, you have to play the long version!
Thanks for letting us rock out your amazing wedding Barbara & Scott!
