7.21.18 Trent & Kelsey celebrated with their family and friends at Court Yard by Marriott.
The Cocktail Hour & Dinner
Guests were welcomed into the beautifully decorated ballroom to romantic background music, what I like to call the LOVE Songs playlist. Trent, Kelsey, and their bridal party were introduced right before dinner to the song "Welcome To The Jungle by Guns N' Roses". During dinner when guests would "clink" their glasses Trent and Kelsey decided to play what I call the copy-cat game. When their guests would start clinking I would call out a name of a couple (Trent & Kelsey gave me this list beforehand) and they would have to come up with a fun creative way to kiss. Then Trent and Kelsey would have to copy them.
We started off the dance with Trent and Kelsey having their first dance to "Nothing's Going To Stop Us Now by Starship". Kelsey was then joined on the dance floor by her Grandfather to "Grandpa by The Judds". Followed by Trent and his mother dancing to "That's What Mamas Do by Jason Matthews". Ending with Kelsey and her mother dancing to "Mama's Song by Carrie Underwood". Trent and Kelsey took the time to work with me beforehand and they had recorded messages to play over the music during their special songs. This pulled on everyone's heartstrings :). In remembrance of family and friends Trent and Kelsey wanted to do something special. All of the guests headed outside to send off hundreds of paper lanterns. This was absolutely amazing to see!
After, guests maid their way back into the ballroom and the dancing started! They danced to a very wide range of music which even included some family tradition songs that packed the dance floor and were not your average wedding songs... "Cover of the rolling stones: Dr. Hook and the Medicine show" and "Dead Skunk in the middle of the road: Loudon Wainwright III".
