Technology is such a powerful thing. And thanks to iMessage and Skype, we were able to book and again plan another wedding for an out-of-town bride and groom.

Katrina and David came to us from our good friend Jesse David Green. He’s the man…I can’t say that enough. We celebrated with this beautiful couple and their friends and family at St. Thomas Catholic Parish in gorgeous Ann Arbor. And if that wasn’t great enough, we were there with Jesse and his second-shooter Lindsey of The Billings Photography. Another great time!
 
 
Talk about unique venues…this one tops our list of the most unique and awesome places to play.

Carrie and Kyle’s wedding brought us to King’s Court Castle in the old Canterbury Village in Lake Orion. If you’ve never been there, I would encourage you to make a day out of it. Set in the medieval times, King’s Court Castle is a very beautiful rustic venue with purple, blue, and wood everywhere. It’s got the feeling of an old Renaissance-era village. What a great place!

To get things started, we introduced the bridal party to the tropical hit “Say Hey (I Love You)” by Michael Franti and Spearhead. After the intros, dinner was served and it was off to the races from there.

Once dinner was complete, Carrie and Kyle made their way to the dance floor and danced to Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister.” After that, the bride and her father pulled off one of the greatest surprises we’ve seen to date. It was the first time we had a bride and her father do the sentimental dance that broke out in to organized chaos. So much fun! “Butterfly Kisses” turned in to “Greased Lightning” from Grease. Awesome.

After that, Kyle and his mom chose “All to You” by Scott Keo. The bridal party joined the fun to the newest hit from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis: “Can’t Hold Us.”

The bouquet and garter happened a little later with the usual “Single Ladies” by Beyonce and my favorite “The Stripper” from “The Full Monty.”

And if that wasn’t great, it’s when we see songs like this on the playlist that we get excited:

Congrats again, Carrie and Kyle! Thanks for such an awesome and unique night!
 
 
It’s not every day you get to play a wedding down the street.

Literally.

This wedding was literally 2 miles down the street from where Brett lives. It was the easiest travel we’ve ever had!

Kathryn & Jacques had their party at the beautiful Western Golf and Country Club in Redford, MI. It’s a truly beautiful golf course tucked away in to a neighborhood. Have you ever driven by something every day and not known it was there? Yep. That was this venue, for sure.

The Dupuis’ kept it classic…and classy…for this one.

Introductions were made to the classic “Do You Believe in Magic” by The Lovin’ Spoonful.

Toasts were made, the meal was blessed, and dinner was served.

Once that was out of the way, the bride and groom made their way to the dance floor for their first dance. They chose Ben Folds’ hit “The Luckiest.” After that, the bride and her father danced to “Your Song” by Elton John.” Then, Jacques and his mom danced to “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong.

Mid-way through, the bride gave her bouquet away to a lucky girl to Fun.’s song “All the Pretty Girls.”

This crowd was hoppin’ all night. It was a nice change of pace from the top 40 that we’re used to as we were able to play a lot of different music from many different eras.

Congrats again to you, Kathryn and Jacques!
