That’s what Shelley and Aaron’s wedding was all about. For this one, we headed out to a private residence in Munith, Michigan to play for 300 of the bride and groom’s closest family and friends.
This was another wedding where the planning-from-far-away made all the difference. We did a lot of calling, emailing, and texting and it wasn’t until the Sunday before the wedding that I had a chance to sit down with bride and groom for the first time.
And as usual, it all paid off.
When the venue is in the country with no one to complain about noise or how late the party goes, you know it’s going to be a good time. And it certainly was.
Both the ceremony and reception were on the property. I assisted with the ceremony music (which went flawlessly) and then we seamlessly moved the party to the back where the reception would be held.
While the transition was taking place, the bride and groom were taking some of the most priceless pictures with their photographer. And it’s not everyday you get to see pictures like this:
That’s priceless, right? That’s the stuff you only see in wedding magazines, and we got to share that moment with them LIVE…and in person! Amazing!
Once dinner was complete, it was time for dancing. Shelley and Aaron shared their first dance to “When God Made You” by Newsong feat. Natalie Grant. Shelley and her dad danced to Natalie Grant’s “I’ll Always Be Your Baby.” Finally, Aaron and his mom danced to “All to You” by Scott Keo.
From there, it was all about fun. And this party was supposed to end at midnight…BUT…the bride and groom were having so much fun with their guests that we played until 2 AM! Awesome!
Thanks again to the Coles for letting us be a part of this! It’s been a while since we’ve played that late and it was worth every minute!
