The newlyweds were introduced to “I Gotta Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas, one of Ellen’s favorite songs. Then they did a romantic choreographed dance to “Harvest Moon” by Neil Young. Ellen was lovely, with a touch of adorable nervousness as they giggled their way through the moves.
The table centerpieces were shafts of wheat tied with blue ribbon. The bridesmaids wore navy blue dresses and carried bouquets of red roses. The cake was decorated with red and purple flowers and topped with a Precious Moments cake topper. A few masquerade masks, jack-o-lantern trinkets and marbles decorated the gift table.
It’s always a pleasure to work at the Garrison, and once again Todd and the staff were spot on. Jeff couldn’t help but notice the fine selection of Belgian beer they were serving! It’s like the Benjamin Franklin quote David used in his thank you speech, “Beer is the proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”
We enjoyed playing requests for a merengue, cha cha and fox trot from an 80 year old gentleman who danced to nearly every song for as long as he could. “The spirit is willing, but the hips are weak,” he told me.
Ellen and David pulled off an amazing experience for their family and friends in only a few months. Thanks so much for inviting us to be a part of it!
