Good Day Bloggers! DJ Gregg here with this installment of the Wedding Blog.
Sam and Jackie were married on January 5th at the beautiful Morikami Museum and Gardens located in Boca Raton. If you have never been there, you are in for a treat. A real photographers paradise!
The weather was perfect for the ceremony and reception outside along the Lake. As the guests arrived, I was playing NEO classical prelude music. When the bridal party entered, I played the Piano Guy's version of "A Thousand Years" . Then I introduced Jackie to The "Glasgow Love Theme" by Craig Armstrong.
Jackie looked beautiful. After the ceremony, I played "Marry You" , by Bruno Mars. It went over great! The newlyweds and guests headed to the upstairs courtyard for cocktails and sushi!
During the cocktail hour I played a mix of classic tunes, Standards and contemporary hits. Very smooth sounds per Sam and Jackie's requests.
Once cocktail hour was over, I invited everyone to proceed to the downstairs courtyard. It was a crisp evening and the weather was perfect to dance under the stars!
Once the guests were settled in I introduced Sam and Jackie to"Sugar" by Maroon 5. I then played the first dance. "The Way You Look Tonight", by Frank Sinatra. Once that ended, I asked Jackie to dance with her Dad. They chose "In My Life" by The Beatles. It was a perfect song for them! I asked the guests to join in and then we took a quick break for the champagne toast. That was performed by Sean, Jackie's stepfather. He welcomed everyone to the event and congratulated Sam and Jackie. Soon after that, the dinner service started.
During dinner, I played some great classic rock, standards and light vocals. An eclectic mix, to say the least!
After dinner, we really heated up the night! I played a nice mix of genres. Sam's family is Persian so I was asked to play a few Persian songs.. No problem! It worked great. However, the big hit of the evening were 80's classics. they danced the whole evening!
Sam and Jackie cut the cake with "Cake By The Ocean" by DNCE playing in the background. Shortly after that I invited the guests to dance again... We danced the rest of the night. The floor was packed!
It really was a great time and I wish them the best!
