Jansen & Austin picked the Angus Barn Pavillion for both ceremony and reception on August 24th and believe me they could not have picked a more beautiful day or venue for the 200 guest wedding. The ceremony overlooked the lake and woods towards the end of the afternoon and the 75 degrees was perfect! Planner Erin McLean and The Angus Barn’s Kelly Joslin were there to make sure everything went off without a hitch and photographer Allison Satterfield was there to capture the madness.
I started playing after the ceremony and had a custom mix of soft rock and standards playing with a little classic R&B and indie rock mixed in. The wedding party was introduced to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” by Stevie Wonder and Jansen & Austin made their way to the dance floor for their first dance of “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne. The energy was through the roof and I could tell this was going to be a great reception and the guests did not let me down! After the first dance, Jansen’s Father said a few words, well not a few.. lol, and her Godfather said the prayer. The dinner music was similar to the cocktail hour as guests made their way through the buffet line.
The Ashley Cakes cake cutting followed dinner and Jansen met her Father on the floor to dance to “In My Life” by The Beatles and Austin escorted his Mother to the floor to dance to “How Sweet It Is” by James Taylor. I opened the floor with some Motown and Beach and guests were anxiously awaiting the opened floor. They actually started dancing before the cake cutting. After some 70’s funk and 80’s, I went current for the remained of the night. The floor stayed packed all night and Jansen, Austin and their guests had a blast! I wasn’t sure they were going to dance, but they were on the floor for at least an hour straight. They ended the night with “Mirrors” by Justin Timberlake and made their way to the classic car getaway to sparklers.
