Matthew and Samantha 11.17.12

Samantha and Matthew had their ceremony downstairs in the garden at The Strand Country Club.  The ceremony started at 4 o'clock.  They had a great officiant Mr. Bob Mitchell.  He always does a wonderful job for a ceremony.  The photographer they chose was named Anna Nyguen from Zee Anna Photography.  They provided a photo booth too.  It was the first time we've worked with them and they were all great!  A lot of fun!

Next, cocktail hour took place upstairs on the patio.  They wanted a mix of music such as some Led Zepplin, Van Morrison, Beatles, Adele.

The beginning of the reception was the introduction of their Bridal Attendants to "Star Wars" IV.  Matt and Samantha danced to Dave Matthews "Steady As We Go" for their First Dance.  Something a bit different for the beginning of the open dancing was that Samantha and Matthew wanted to start the party off with "Black Betty" and we played a fun song first, then another song after then we moved on with the reception.  It went over great for their crowd!

For the end of the night song, they chose "The Band Played On" by the Black Crowes.  They also provided vans for the guests to ride back to their hotel.  It was another great night!
