I was so happy to be able to play for April and Danny’s wedding at The Washington-Duke Inn! They are such a nice couple and have one of the sweetest and prettiest daughters, Maria!
Because of the forecasted weather, they chose to have the wedding ceremony inside. Minister Barbara Lodge did a prefect job as always and the ceremony was very touching and included their daughter in the sand ceremony. After the ceremony Barbara invited guests to the front foyer for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. I had a mix of top 40, soft rock and classic soul playing. When pics were done guests started making their way down to the ballroom for dinner and dancing. The room looked beautiful with arrangements by Lyn at Fresh Affairs.
I introduced the wedding party and April & Danny and they came right to the floor for their first dance. After that Danny welcomed everyone and his Uncle David blessed the meal. The salad, soup & entrées came out and I continued the same music mix as cocktails.
After dinner we had the Ashely’s cake cutting followed by the champagne toasts. April then joined her father on the floor for their dance and Danny escorted his daughter to the floor for their dance. I invited all the married coupes to join them for a “longest married couple” dance with the winners at 51 years married. I then opened the floor to everyone with some Motown and top 40 that had both sides of the families, young and old, filling the floor. It’s always such a great feeling to see everyone having so much fun dancing together!
We paused briefly for the bouquet toss, then back to dancing to top 40, hip hop and some line dances until the end of the night.
This was one of my favorite weddings, and not one I, or the guests, will soon forget!
