Kevin and Kathryn 1.26.13

Kevin and Katie traveled from Canada to enjoy their wedding day in beautiful and warm Naples, Florida.  They picked a beautiful day for their outdoor ceremony at the beach at 8th Avenue South.  The weather was perfect.  Scott and I provided the setup for the ceremony including the sound system, microphones, the electrical power and the music.  The ceremony was coordinated by Catherine from A Beautiful Florida Wedding.com and performed by Bob Mitchell who is with the same company.  It's always great to work with professionals!  They chose Charlie McDonald as their photographer - he is always fun to work with.

Katie walked down the lawn aisle to Ben Harper's "Waiting On An Angel" escorted by both her Mother and her Father.  After the ceremony they chose Weezer's "Islands In The Sun" to walk out to --- perfect!

The cocktail hour and reception were both held at the Lakewood Country Club here in Naples, Florida.  It was a pleasure meeting and working with Beverly there and her upbeat staff.

The introduction of the Bridal Attendants was the first thing we did.  It was started a bit earlier than planned since it started to get cool outside after the sun went down.  Everyone came into the party dancing to "What I Like About You" by The Romantics.

Most everyone at the reception was also from Canada.  We've seen this before, where the bridal couple has one or two emcee's (friend(s) from the bridal party) for the night (other than the DJ) that emcee and lead the speeches and toasts.  Instead of their guest clinking glasses to get them to kiss, they had to come up to the podium and give the newly wedded couple some words of advice.  Then... they kissed!

The reception consisted of approximately 70 guests, all had a great sense of humor shown throughout the evening - and everyone enjoyed their celebration with Kevin & Katie!
