Here are our recaps of the amazing weddings we deejayed on September 26th, 2009!
Ashleigh and Todd, 9/26/09 - Historic London Town and Gardens, Edgewater, MD
DJ: Jeff Brown
The setting: The classic Historic London Town was accented by the couple's pink and green color scheme, which included everything from the table linens to the cake.
The first dance: "I Got You Babe" by Sonny and Cher
A funny moment: The groom's frat brothers lifted Todd high into the air during Steppenwolf's "Magic Carpet Ride."
A unique touch: The bride and groom gave their beautiful centerpieces to the guest at each table with the birthday closest to the wedding date.
Laura and Michael, 9/26/09 - Ten Oaks Ballroom, Clarksville, MD
DJ: Anthony Simpson
The setting: The expansive Ten Oaks Ballroom, with its chandeliers and grand foyer, was very welcoming.
The first dance: "More Today Than Yesterday" by Spiral Staircase
A unique touch: Instead of table numbers, the tables were named after romantic songs, including "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You," "Blueberry Hill" and "Love and Marriage." Some of the guests cheered when "their" song was played!
A sentimental moment: The bride's father wrote his own special musical blessing, to the tune of a lullaby he sang to the bride when she was a little girl. Her brother accompanied him on guitar, and it was really touching.
Libby and Patrick, 9/26/09 - St. Regis Hotel, Washington, DC
DJ: David Johnson
The setting: The breathtaking St. Regis hotel was made even more beautiful by tasteful yellow roses and floating candle centerpieces, with the tables named after Washington, DC landmarks.
The first dance: "Three Little Birds (Live)" by Black 47
The music: A wide variety of music was played, but the crowd's favorite was definitely hits from the 1980s!
A special moment: The couple requested many sentimental songs, their family's favorites, to be played during dinner, and at one point the bride and her father shared an impromptu dance.

DJ: Soor Kothari
The setting: Bretton Woods, with its surrounding parklands and nearby golf course.
The first dance: "Samba Pa Ti" by Santana
The music: The guests danced all night to everything from Motown to the Rat Pack, 80s to pop hits. They even formed a huge circle to Sister Sledge's "We Are Family" and Timbaland's "The Way I Are."
A funny moment: The bride dedicated Notorious B.I.G.'s "Big Poppa" to her father, who donned a cowboy hat to everyone's enjoyment!
