Garrison Wedding of Jordyn and Dan

4.10.10 It was a pleasure to join our friends at the Garrison for Jordyn and Dan’s spring wedding. It doesn’t get much more beautiful than that view of the Hudson River Valley below, Jordyn and Dan Dancingwith the trees in bloom and green popping up everywhere.

The petite Jordyn, hair tucked up with a flower, was absolutely gorgeous in her strapless wedding gown with cascading ruffles and a gray sash about the waist. The bridesmaids wore the palest gray/green dresses. Dan and his groomsmen wore gray suits with yellow ties and flowers in their button holes.

THE DETAILS: The Garrison’s rooms were pure spring delight for the wedding; with arrangements of spring flowers in yellow, lavender and white in groups of different vases on each table. The yellow really popped, especially against the groomsmen’s ties, reminding me of spring’s first daffodils. Guests found their tables written on tags that were hung on a wire strung up with matching flowers, a whimsical touch.  Oh, and a cool, vintage photo booth!

Wedding Place Cards

The wedding day was our first day meeting Jordyn and Dan, but it was obvious that their families and friends were full of love and fun from the start. The Best Man acted out the Jordyn Smiling(drunken) telephone conversation the night Dan proposed to Jordyn and the Maid of Honor channeled the verklempt Aunt Phyllis from Schenectady in her toast.

This group was full of musicians and we ought to have been intimated, but they made us feel right at home. We even played a rockin’ song called, “I Love You Vampire, that was written and performed by Jordyn’s brother and his band Bodyface!

The bridemaids surprised…and possibly shocked…everyone with a choreographed Lady Gaga dance to “Bad Romance” that involved writhing on the floor.

Have I ever mentioned that the best part of being a DJ is people watching?

The night ended on a sentimental note with Coldplay’s “Fix You,” the song Jordyn and Dan almost picked for their first dance song. Then party goers migrated on to the Sierra Hotel for the after party.

It was a spring celebration of life and love. Thanks for having us, guys!
