Kelly and Ankit had quite a day last Saturday. The day consisted of both a Hindu and Christian ceremony and two receptions! I was honored to be a part of reception 2 that night.
The event was held in Greensboro, NC in a newish venue called Cadillac Service Garage, which was back in the 1920s, exactly that. Wow! What a cool venue! I loved it! Cocktails started up front in what used to be the car showroom. We had our brand new “Bunn Booth” Photo Booth set up there and everyone was hopping in to grab pics.
After cocktail hour, guests made their way into what used to be the service garage (trust me, it’s gorgeous now) for dinner and dancing. I began with introductions to “Marry You” by Bruno Mars and from the jump, I could tell this crowd was into it! Next, the groom’s parents welcomed everyone, the bride’s grandfather blessed the food and dinner was served. Food was provide by 1618 on Location and it was awesome!
As dinner wrapped up, several folks gave toasts, all of which were perfect. Kelly and Ankit then cut their cake and came back to the dance floor for their first dance. I loved their song choice, “Latch (Acoustic version)” by Sam Smith. I invited the guests in to dance with them about midway per their requests. Next, Kelly and her dad danced to our custom edit of “Butterfly Kisses” and then Ankit and his mother danced to “What a Wonderful World”. Then it was time for open dancing! The only pause in the dance action was for a quick bouquet toss to “Haven’t Met You Yet” by Buble. The night concluded with a big singalong to the classic “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. What a night! Shout out to Nina with Lisa Pleasant Events for doing such a great job keeping things on track all day!
