Scott and Jaime 6.20.14

What a wonderfully pleasant couple!  All of their family too!  Wow!  What an honor to be part of this wedding celebration.  It was on Friday, June 20th, 2014 at the LaPlaya Resort.  They were married on the Gulf side and had the Cocktail Hour on the Gulf side also.

We, Naples DJ joined them for the Reception on the Bay side in the BayView Ballroom.  This was a destination wedding of about 36 guests (which is more difficult for a DJ than a larger party) ;-)  that Jaime and Scott planned with one of the wedding planners at the LaPlaya Resort, Julie.  The reception was sooo much FUN!  Everyone participated and the kids were enjoying participating and they were very nicely outgoing!

Since it was a quaint celebration the newly married couple chose to only have the two of themselves introduced which seemed very appropriate for the amount of guests.  After some amazing Toasts were given along with the Blessing, dinner was served.

After dinner Jaime and Scott did their First Dance to "At Last" by Kevin Michael, and the Cake Cutting followed and we played "How Sweet It Is" by James Taylor.  Around 8:20pm Scott and Jaime briefly left the reception with the photographer Peggy Farren for some sunset photos.  While they were gone Jaime and Scott had us entertain their family and friends with a game of trivia with some sunglasses as prizes.  It was entertaining for their group and they all had fun wearing them through the evening.

When they returned from the photos at sunset that's when we did the Bride / Father Dance to "My Girl" by Temptations and then Scott and his Mother danced to "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" by IZ.  At the right time we did something a bit different that Jaime really wanted.  That was to do an "Introduction" of Bridal Attendants onto the dance floor in a game announcer tone to have some fun acknowledging them, especially the Kids.  We did have some doubts how this might go over with the kids being later in the night, but it sure was a hit with this group, especially done at the right time of the night!  Great idea Jaime!  Thanks for choosing us to be part of your amazing wedding celebration!

George and Carla 6.14.14 Hilton Naples

Another great wedding with Ashley from the Hilton Naples!  Thank You Ashley!  This Saturday June 14th, 2014 George and Carla hosted about 85 guests.  Their photographer was Ashley Moore and their Videographer was Le Cape.

I love the cake!  It's called a Naked Cake!

This couple was great to work with.  They knew exactly what they wanted and had a lot of information prepared when we met with them.  Scott and I did their Ceremony, which for the Prelude Music (music while guests are finding their seats) Carla chose all Helen Jane Long songs.  Her Bridal walk down the aisle was "To Dust" also by Helen Jane Long.  It was beautiful!  Their Recessional Song they chose for after they were married was "I'm Yours" Jason Mraz.

After Cocktail Hour was the Wedding Reception in the main ballroom.  They had a large amount of Bridal Attendants which included 5 Ring-bearers and 2 Flower-girls!  They were all so adorable! We started off introducing everyone into the ballroom to "Good Life" by One Republic.

The Cake Cutting was done to "Fly Me To The Moon" by Frank Sinatra after the Toasts were given and dinner was completed.  Then, they went into their First Dance Song, "All Of Me" by John Legend.  George danced with his Mother to "Song For Mama" by Boyz II Men.  There was a lot of dancing the rest of the evening and also a special birthday cake for one of the Ring - Bearers since it was his 5th birthday!

A beautifully in-love couple.  It was so sweet watching George taking care of Carla all that evening.
