I did the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception music for Bethany and Chris on Friday, 5/15/09 and it was wonderful! They were very nice, down-to-earth, and had fabulous music. Everything was held at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club, one of our favorite places to work, in the Tavern Ballroom. They had great weather for the ceremony, their readings were really cute.
After the ceremony, they changed into traditional Korean dress (Chris' family is Korean) and performed a tea ceremony with their families. This is a very neat tradition, and I played some cool Korean gayageum music in the background while they did it.
After some heartfelt toasts and a great dinner courtesy of Teresa Hunter and the CBBC staff, everyone had a great time dancing, drinking, and catching up with old friends. Bethany and Chris get major kudos from me on their music choices - everything from classic rock to indie and a little punk thrown in there. The first dance was the Iron and Wine cover of "Such Great Heights," from the Garden State soundtrack - probably the best soundtrack in the last 15 years!
