20th wedding of the season w/ Andrew & Jenn!

Couple: Andrew and Jenn

Venue: Blue Hill Country Club, Canton MA

Date: 11-18-17

Say hello to Mr. and Mrs. Isidoro! I was connected with this incredible couple after they were guests last year at Nick and Joanna’s wedding. They got in touch shortly after that & after being familiar with my style and meeting over a coffee to just chat about their day – they secured the date and we were off and running with music planning.

Another dream couple to work with in all areas and not just saying that to say it. They were so prepared with every detail. I’m so SO lucky everyone I’ve worked with has been so down to earth – giving me some guidelines on what they want musically and not micromanaging the music – trusting I will incorporate their must and must not plays along with reading the crowds and keeping them moving.

I had a couple of meetings with Andrew and Jenn and we went over every song choice for the earlier parts of the night to first and parent dances, etc. and their music choices were awesome. The ceremony itself was held off site – so I arrived to the venue a couple hours early to setup for cocktail hour, dinner, and dance party.

As a vendor – this was one of the easiest venues I’ve worked. Unload right in front up an elevator to the ballroom I was set up in. Cocktail hour was just one PA speaker just outside the ballroom in the bar area.

Once I had everything set up and ready to go – guests started coming in for the start of cocktail hour. Jenn and Andrew wanted a chill mix of music for this part – Vitamin String Quartet covers to Rufus Wainwright and very mellow classic rock like Tom Petty’s ‘Wildflowers’.

With cocktail hour coming to an end everyone made their way into the ballroom and took their seats for introductions and the first dance. The bridal party was announced to Betty Who ‘I Love You Always Forever’ while Andrew and Jenn were announced to ‘Style’ by T Swift (starting at the 2:20 chorus to be exact). Going from that directly into first dance Iron and Wine ‘Such Great Heights’. From that we had a couple of toasts and into dinner with the music mirroring the cocktail playlist for the most part but adding in some indie rock as well from Mumford, Of Monsters & Men, etc.

As dinner was winding down – Andrew and Jenn cut their wedding cake to ‘Cake By The Ocean’ from Dnce and went into their parent dances. Andrew and his mother danced to ‘Into the Mystic’ from Van Morrison while Jenn and her father danced to REM’s ‘Nightswimming’ Both were great choices and we led right into an open dance floor and party.

Kicked things off with some old school funk and soul to get everyone up and moving and transitioned into some Top 40 and 80s/90s gems to mix it all up. In the middle of the dance party – Jenn and Andrew did the tradition of the garter and bouquet toss – Jenn’s song choice was Beyonc√©’s ‘Girls Run The World’ and Andrew’s song was ‘Danger Zone’ by Kenny Loggins. Near the end of the night I threw on some of their must plays from the Killers to Tom Petty – Paul Simon and Weezer. We closed the night out with a song choice of theirs Death Can for Cutie’s ‘Transatlanticism’. (SUCH a good song!)

Thank-you Andrew and Jenn! You guys rocked, your wedding rocked, please keep in touch and congrats!!!
