Bridget & Ted! Wedding 12/2015 season

THIS WEDDING WAS AMAZING!!! August 29th, 2015 at the Hilton Hotel Back Bay, Boston.

I was introduced to these two a while back from a friend of mine, Ashley (who is a regular at 6B 90’s Night on Fridays!) Bridget & Ted right when I met them have got to be the most genuine, nicest people ever. They were so easy and fun to work with and get to know over the course of planning the big day. Ted is from NY and Bridget is Boston all the way so the theme of the wedding they wanted to hear some music representing that. Their ceremony was held off sight so I didn’t actually provide music for that. My job was taking over later that evening for the start of cocktail hour which was held outside the main ballroom. I had one PA speaker and mixer to play a mix of Jazz, big band, and Rat Pack tunes which they wanted.

Once that wrapped up everyone made their way into the ballroom to be seated for the introductions. The decorations and colors looked awesome inside. Once I got everyone lined up and the attention of the crowd, I announced the entire wedding party. Parents were brought out to “Dancing in the Dark” by Bruce Springsteen while the wedding party itself and the couple were introduced to “Shut Up & Dance” by Walk the Moon. This was awesome because it set the tone early on we were here to party and the entire crowd was clapping and singing along. Once the bride and groom entered they went right into their first dance “A Thousand Years” by Sawyer Fredericks. Awesome song, they were great on the dance floor together!

We had toasts/speeches right as dinner was starting and one of the best men had one of the funnier wedding toasts I can remember. He even brought out NY Yankees hats and asked Bridget to convert, thankfully she declined! Dinner music was a mix of mellow indie tunes as the Lumineers, Of Monsters & Men, Alabama Shakes, with old school Rat Pack and jazz. It flowed nicely and the food was delish!! We were now approaching time to cut the cake and get the dancing underway. The cake cutting song was “Sugar” by Maroon 5 (and was some of the best wedding cake I’ve had, SO good!)

Ted was up first with his mother dancing to “Child of Mine” by Carole King. Great choice I must say. Bridget was up next dancing with her brother to the song “That’s Life” by Ol’ Blue Eyes, Mr. Frank Sinatra. This song had a very special meaning and even got myself teary eyed watching them sing every word at the top of their lungs and dance it up to the memory of their father. It was truly amazing to see them enjoying every minute. From that led us unto the open dance floor! This crowd was literally unstoppable. EVERY song they went nuts to and before I knew it I was doing my final announcement and saying goodnight, the time flew by. We mixed up any and everything. Kool & The Gang, A-Ha, Madonna, Backstreet Boys, NSync, Macklemore, Mark Ronson, Avicii, Tom Petty, The Isley Brothers, Marvin Gaye, Jackson 5, etc…

The end of the night was the best. I had put together a mash-up for them earlier of NY/Boston songs. Empire State of Mind, Dirty Water, New York New York, and Sweet Caroline. Every single person in that room was huddled together on the floor singing every single word.

Bridget and Ted, you guys RULE in every aspect of the word. I cannot thank you enough for letting me rock the house and it was an absolute pleasure getting drinks over the months and getting to know you both. Ted, to you I say “FREE BRADY!”

Congrats guys!!!
