People that know me can testify to the fact that I absolutely pour my heart and soul in to every event that I do. But sometimes an event comes along that is truly more special than the rest.

This will be the most meaningful event all year. Simply because my friends Abby and Mike now share an anniversary with my wife and me! HOW EXCITING! Don’t worry…we will still celebrate our big day together. :)

I had the pleasure of playing for Abby’s sister Olivia last year when she and Ryan got married at Weller’s in Saline. This time it was Abby and Mike’s turn.

The event took place at the Meeting House Grand Ballroom in Plymouth, MI. I’m normally very complimentary of most venues where I get to play, but I was not at all impressed with the way this staff operated. I wrote a Yelp review which you can read here.

Alright…with that out of the way, let’s talk about Abby and Mike!

From an aesthetic standpoint, this was one of the most elegant weddings I’ve played for in a long time. The room has very high ceilings and a Victorian feeling to it. The floor is an original hardwood that squeaks.

As an added bonus, this event was great because of the relationship my family has with the bride’s family from years of attending North Ridge Church together. It makes things easier when you get to play for friends.

Not only was I able to play for friends, I was also able to spend some time with them!

The night was an absolute blast and I’m thankful for a bride and groom like Abby and Mike who give me creative control over the entertainment. They did get me a short playlist to work off of, but most of this night was just me and my raw skill to keep their guests dancing all night…which they did.

Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me and Motor City HDJ be a part of this very special day. You are two of the sweetest people I know and I’m excited to see you start a family together. And thank you for letting me share an anniversary with you two! :)
