Talk about classy…this event was all that and then some! It was a mix of class, elegance, nature, and beauty…all wrapped up in to one! Oh, and don’t forget that we love to play events where there are a good amount of friends there.
We met Jessica and Steve through North Ridge Church in Plymouth. They’re an absolutely wonderful couple of people that are in love with each other and love to have a good time.
This was one of the more interesting weddings we’ve done because of one simple word: WEATHER. The event was at Stoney Creek Metro Park in Shelby Township. A beautiful venue if you’re looking to have an outdoor party.
We did some work for the ceremony and the weekend’s weather was proving to be a bit of a stinker. Talk about storms! At any rate, the ceremony was beautiful and went off without a hitch. (Sorry for the blur…)
Our good friends, The Rondo String Quartet
, provided music for the ceremony. It was good to see them again.
Now, the reception. The bridal party entered to Queen’s “Crazy Little Thing Called Love.” Dinner was served and after, the new husband and wife shared their first dance to “As Long As Our Hearts Are Beating” by Jenny & Tyler.
The daddy/daughter dance was to Eva Cassidy’s cover of “Time After Time” and the mother/son dance was to Charlene Soraia’s cover of “Wherever You Will Go.”
Last, but not least, our good friends from MammothBooth
were on hand to capture all the silliness and smiles from the guests. We managed to get in for a few pictures with some good friends. So, we’ll leave you on that note.
Congrats, Jess and Steve! Thanks for having us along for your very special day!
It’s always refreshing to play in a “non-traditional” venue. Jolynn and Jason found us through Brett’s cousin and had their party at the Elks Lodge in Grand Blanc, MI. The event cooler part? The bride just happens to be a former officer of the Elks Lodge 222. What an honor!
Jolynn and Jason chose royal blue and silver as their colors and the room was absolutely gorgeous! They’re big family people, so everything about the night revolved around the unity between the two families.
We got the party started by introducing the bridal party to Muse’s “Supermassive Black Hole.” After dinner, the bride and groom danced to Red Jumpsuit Apparatus’s song “Your Guardian Angel.”
Jolynn and her dad danced to “You Raise Me Up” by Josh Groban while the groom and his mother followed with the classic “Let It Be” by The Beatles. The bridal party joined in the fun with Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years.”
What a fun group of people! It was a good blend of 80s, classic rock, and top 40 all night long.
Thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Hodges for letting us share in their big night!
