Halloween was more beautiful than scary with the two weddings we deejayed on October 31st, 2009! Recaps below:
Carla and Marc, 10/31/09 - Westin Hotel, Annapolis, MD
DJ: Jeff Brown
The setting: The dramatic Westin Annapolis, with its contemporary styling.
The first dance: "There is No Greater Love" by Amy Winehouse
An interesting detail: The bride and groom's introductions were accompanied by the "Throne Room Ceremony" song from Star Wars.
A touching moment: The bride's brother delivered a very heartfelt speech, which the bride (and everyone watching) obviously appreciated!
An unexpected surprise: The bride surprised the groom with a very unique cake by Duff Goldman (TV's "Ace of Cakes") -- it was at least two feet high and a perfect model of the AT-AT Walker vehicle from Star Wars!
Sabine and Jeff, 10/31/09 - Peabody Library, Baltimore, MD
DJ: Anthony Simpson
The setting: The George Peabody Library is one of the most spectacular venues in Baltimore, with its soaring ceilings and classical embellishments.
The first dance: "Book of Love" by Peter Gabriel
The music: Lots of oldies, mixed with Latin music for the bride's family and some current hits too.
A special tradition: The bride's family was from Colombia, and enjoyed a special dance called "El Camino de la Vida" by Nueva Generacion.
A touching moment: The bride shared a special dance with her uncle to Heartland's "I Loved Her First," and both were clearly very moved. It was beautiful to watch.
An unexpected surprise: The groom took the microphone and made a speech to the guests, during which he thanked them for being there for his special day -- then announced that he wanted to recognize a special day for someone else: his sister, who was celebrating her birthday. Everyone then sang along to "Happy Birthday!"
