On July 18th, Nathan and Caroline’s reception took place on the 20th floor of a downtown Lynchburg, VA building. The venue was called City View by The James, and it was gorgeous! The guests arrived around 5:00 from the ceremony and were treated to passed apps and drinks. At around 6:00, it was time to get things moving with the introduction to the song “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon (great choice by the way!). When Caroline and Nathan finally hit the center of the room, it was deafening in that room! They went right into their first dance “All This Time” by One Republic (another smoking hot song). The father of the bride then welcomed everyone and blessed the food before dinner made its way out.

After dinner, there were some great toasts, our cake cutting and finally the parent dances. Caroline and her father danced to “Daddy Dance with Me” by Krystal Keith. Nathan and his mother danced to “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong and then it was time for everyone to get up and dance! We took a quick break for the bouquet and garter, but it was mostly just a big dance party. I had done Caroline’s sister’s wedding about 4 years ago, and I remembered this family well…they love to party and dance…and I love them for it. The night ended with a sparkler departure and HOT donuts streetside! What a great time! I’m so glad I made the journey to Virginia! Shout out to Katie Lester with A Little Party for keeping the event moving so smoothly.
