Julie & Ryan couldn’t have asked for any better weather for the day & evening of their wedding reception at Clark’s Landing in Point Pleasant. After sailing in to Clark’s (which is on the bay side), they enjoyed cocktail hour in the bar area to the sounds of our piano player, with sunlight streaming in.
Their guests were definitely ready to celebrate their union and the start of a what promised to be a great July 4th weekend. Once the festivities moved upstairs, we brought in the parents, bridal party and Ryan & Julie to the sounds of CeCe Peniston’s dance fave “Finally”. J & R danced their first dance to Michael Buble’s “Everything”. Julie then danced with her father to a medley of Heartland’s “I Loved Her First” and the Stevie Wonder classic “Isn’t She Lovely”. Ryan then got his turn with his mom to Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me”.
The guests and dancers seemed to enjoy all different styles and musics. Just before dinner, our versions of Sam & Dave’s “Hold On, I’m Coming” and Tom Petty’s “American Girl” really got ’em worked up! Later on a few special requests we learned for Ryan & Julie kept the dancefloor packed… the Killers’ “Mr Brightside”, Lady GaGa’s “The Edge of Glory” and Hall and Oates’ “Kiss On My List” (Ryan got up on the spur of the moment and sat in/sang with the Smokin’ Section on one verse on the Hall & Oates) and displayed this nj wedding bands versatility.
Don and the staff at Clark’s Landing keep things humming throughout the party. Photographer Pat Furey and the tandem of Rick and Anthony from Majestic Cinema Productions were there to capture and record the day’s memories and high moments for posterity. We enjoyed seeing Rob & Aurea again…we played their wedding reception at the Primavera Regency in Stirling in November of ’04, and they now have a son and a daughter.
The Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love” was the finale for a rocking party.
