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.
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.
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.
