This was an amazing wedding for me! When you’ve known the bride and half the bridesmaids for your entire life, its kind of hard not to think that this would be a good time. However, it did put a lot more pressure on me then normal. Don’t get me wrong, I try to give 110% at every event I do, but the pressure rises when the room is filled with family friends, my parents and peers I’ve grown up with my whole life. Needless to say I feel like it was a total success!
Jessica and Kevin’s wedding took place at one of my favorite halls in Northeast Philadelphia at The Philadelphia Ballroom right off Southampton and the Boulevard. The venue has only been open for about 3 years now, and not only is it a beautiful, but they have one of my favorite hosts I’ve ever worked with, Mr. Lee (He even photobombed my shot with the bride and groom). He is such a personable guy, and he just makes the whole event fun and enjoyable for not only the guest but all the vendors too! I even caught him doing the Cupid Shuffle with the bride! How cool is that!!
The bridal party was fun and energetic! They were extremely hyped to come out for the intros! Everyone in the bridal party came out to a theme song. Songs like “Eye of the Tiger” and “The Eagles Fight Song” made for some really fun introductions!
When Jessica came into our office, she explained that she wanted a wide variety of music played. I expected some classic favorites like Whitney Houston and Madonna to be on there, along with some country mixed in. DJ Skitlz did a great job of mixing things up. The dance floor was packed all night! Knowing how much Jessica loves everything about Disney, I was shocked that “A Whole New World” or “Let It Go” wasn’t on the song lists. Yet, the maid of honor made sure she through a little Disney spice into her speech which ironically included both of these song titles.
All and all the wedding was a success! The bride and groom honestly looked like they had the time of their lives! Which is exactly what our goal was of the night! The father of the bride pulled me aside at the end of the night and told me that he was so happy In The Mix was a part of his daughters wedding and that he truly could see how passionate I was about my job! Which is honestly the best compliment someone can give me! Thanks so much for that Mr. Sandford! Jessica and Kevin, you’ll never know how much it means to me for my company to be part of your big day! I sincerely mean it from the bottom of my heart! This is one wedding I’ll never forget! Congratulations again!!
