Matt & Bethany 10.30.10

Matt & Bethany chose to hold their wedding celebration at The Forest Country Club in South Fort Myers. It was a beautiful day outside. The ceremony site was just off to the side of the club itself, and was set under some huge oak trees. The wedding officiant, Rev. Christina Bowman , was flawless as everyone watched the ceremony commence. The ceremony was perfect. Afterwards guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in the lobby as the wedding party posed for photos.

The new couple were brought into the room to "I've Gotta Feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas. They then shared their first dance to Uncle Cracker's "Smile." They followed with their parent dance, where Bethany danced with her dad and Matt with his mother to Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World."

Toasts and dinner followed. To honor some of their friends, they requested various wedding first dance songs that guests had danced to at their own weddings. That was truly a nice touch.

The only rules Bethany & Matt gave me were: 1. Not many slow songs and 2. They want their guests to have fun!

This crowd loved 80's and 90's music - and the floor was filled all night long. It definitely was a fun and memorable night!
