included multiple tributes to Marist College and was followed by one of the most non-stop dancing parties we’ve had all year!
Travis absolutely loves music and gave us a long list of requests for the wedding. Man, did he know his group! From “O.P.P.” to “Jamboree in the Hills,” the music united their Marist friends with their West Virginia and Massachusetts family on the dance floor.
The reception began with elaborate introduction music engineered by Travis. I announced, “Travis and Bobbie Sue had a really tough time agreeing on an entrance song. Let’s see who won…” Excerpts from songs referencing West Virginia, Boston and the Pittsburg Steelers followed before finally settling on “Bobbi Sue” by the Oakridge Boys.
Then I told the love story of Travis and Bobbi Sue, how they met, fell in love and got engaged at Marist College, finally getting married there in the Chapel that day. Their first dance, “Then” by Brad Paisley said it all.
THE DETAILS: The bridesmaids wore strapless fuchsia gowns and carried bouquets of fuchsia roses accented by pale green flowers. The tables were decorated with matching fuchsia napkins and centerpieces of pink and fuchsia gerber daisies. Guests were treated to drinks in Little Mermaid sippie cups, a tribute to Bobbi Sue’s love for Ariel.
Bobbi Sue was simply stunning! As the Best man joked, “Travis may be a great guy, but Bobbi Sue greatly outshines him.”
However, Travis is no slouch himself, as the Matron of Honor pointed out. “Our Ariel has finally found her Prince Eric and now she really is the girl who has everything.”
Travis worked the room with the microphone, singing along to “Sweet Caroline” as he egged on his guests and later on “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”
What made the night even sweeter was working with our buddies Steve Planck from Blue Sky Photography and Bill and Mike from Joyful Moments Video. These guys are easy as pie to be around, almost invisible at the wedding…and Steve is just so irresistibly fun to mess with.
Once again the Links was spot on with timing and accommodating dinner service. A true pleasure!
Travis and Bobbi Sue, you masterfully drew your friends and loved ones from across the country together into your own love story using the power of music and your energizing personalities. You are now my personal heroes! Thanks for letting us join in the fun.
