I frequently get to work for couples who live in other places but choose to get married here in Massachusetts or in neighboring Rhode Island. When I first met with Ami & Tom, I was surprised to learn that they’d actually be moving out of state in the six months between our meeting and their wedding day. The reason was simple: job transfer. However, the joys (and chaos) of moving didn’t impair their wedding plans at all. For me, learning about their musical tastes and reception details was simple, thanks to the online event planning system that I have for all of my clients. It’s super-convenient, and it allows me to keep track of every detail and special request.
For Ami & Tom’s wedding, I provided sound reinforcement for their wedding ceremony as well as reception entertainment. Everyone enjoyed the music – although there wasn’t as much dancing as I’d hoped for earlier in the night (Ami & Tom had some catching up to do with the friends they’d moved away from), things definitely picked up as the night went on. I purposely saved some of the bride and groom’s special requests for later in the evening, when I knew they’d be dancing. Among the artists on their request list: Lady Gaga, K.C. & The Sunshine Band, The Gap Band and Flo Rida.
As expected, the staff at Indian Pond Country Club did an amazing job – in addition to a multiple-course meal, Ami & Tom opted for a chocolate fountain dessert station. I’ve seen lots of these in the past few years – some good, some just okay. This presentation was among the best.
Congratulations, Ami & Tom!
