Grandview Wedding: Christine and Jordan

9.17.11  Christine and Jordan’s elegant black and white wedding at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie, NY was amazing!

From the Grandview’s bounteous feast during the cocktail hour, while Jeff performed acoustic guitar, to the grand finale sendoff to “Shout” by the Isley Brothers, it was nothing short of impressive.

This was the first time we met Christine and Jordan in person, and they were very bit as fun as I’d imagined them.  Christine was gorgeous with her blonde hair in an elegant updo, and sparkling eyes as she danced, quite literally, all night long.

I introduced them as, “The Doctors Christine and Jordan,” to celebrate not only their marriage, but the completion of their veterinary degrees.  I like doctors who party!

The bridesmaids wore black gowns and carried bouquets white roses and lilies.  The tables were decorated with alternating tall and short arrangements of white hydrangeas, lilies and roses.  The white wedding cake had chocolate accents and was topped with their monogram and the cutest stethoscope cake topper!

Christine’s brother cracked us up during his toast by giving Jordan a warning to come armed with “both fruit rolls ups and ear plugs” in preparation for a disagreement.  Then Jordan took the microphone and said he was the luckiest guy in the world to be with Christine and to spend the rest of his life with her.

The Music

This was a “three Shout” wedding!  Christine’s family LOVES the song “Shout,” so those chose it for their introductions, had us play it in the middle of the reception, and then again as their grand finale.  They certainly had enough energy to convince us to bring it back happily!

The music was classic and fun, from Elvis to Journey with everything in between.

Along with their cake, guests enjoyed the Grandview’s Tableside Temptations and an international coffee bar.  Delicious!

Christine and Jordan worked hard to pull off an amazing wedding planned at a distance.  You pulled it off!  Thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of it.
