come to expect: non-stop, crazy dancing Hudson Valley weddings!  Jill and Jay’s reception under the tent was all that and MORE.

What makes this a recipe for a fabulous party?  Well, the newlyweds partying attitude set the tone.  They were introduced to a live version of “Two Step” by Dave Matthews and hit the floor with unstoppable energy.  Yep, it’s contagious.

THE DETAILS:  Lavender and white rose centerpieces and photos of the couple with table numbers on the back.  The bridesmaids wore lavender/pewter gowns.  The cake topper was a groom on skiis carrying the bride on his back.

Jill was gorgeous with her curls pulled into an elegant updo.  No wonder Jay had us play, “Hot For Teacher” as he removed her garter!  I loved watching the newlyweds dancing close and whispering the words to Ray Lamontagne’s “Let It Be Me.”

The kids at this wedding were absolutely beautiful.  Three little sisters in matching patterned yellow sundresses paired off and danced with their little boy cousins, each eight months apart.  So cute!

After dinner we indulged Jay and Jill’s love of 90’s pop and old school hip hop with Boyz II Men, the Spice Girls, Naughty By Nature and Biggy.  Yes, I must admit that is my era!  Of course, we didn’t forget the 80’s either; the entire dance floor did the arm pumping Wham! dance to “Wake Me Up Before You Go.”

The guests gave Jay and Jill an arm in arm send off on a NY note to “Empire State of Mind” and “New York, New York.”  The love was so palpable I could taste it.  (Or was that the champagne sprayed into the air by the Best Man?)

Smiling faces, laughter, singing and dancing.  Jill and Jay, it was an amazing night.  Thanks for making us a part of it!
