Kim & Andy were such fun and wonderful clients to work with! They really took the time to put their personal stamp on their wedding day with both decor and the song list.
This was a fun wedding and little did we know it would be one of our last pre-pandemic weddings of 2020! The governor enacted COVID restrictions on their wedding day for no gatherings of 100 or more. Luckily we were under that amount so it did not affect the wedding. The ceremony was beautiful and located to left if the main house on the property.
After the cocktail hour, it was time to get our bridal party introduced into the reception to “I Believe In A Thing Called Love” by The Darkness. Our bride and groom’s entrance followed to “Better Together” by Jack Johnson and went directly into their first dance. After the toasts, the DJ opened the night with the married couple’s Anniversary Dance which helped open up the dance floor. From there on, it was a fun time of dancing with a packed dance floor the rest of the night. We ended the night with “Wagon Wheel” by Old Crow Medicine Show with all of our guests on the dance floor with Andy and Kim and then, of course, the amazing Sparkler Exit.
