Nick and Molly’s reception this past Saturday at The Washington Duke Inn was off the hook! The guests arrived to music provided by the groom’s father, Anthony Ashur. He is a really talented piano master so check his stuff out on iTunes! After the cocktail hour, we lined up for the bridal party introduction to “Raise Your Glass” by Pink. Once the bride and groom entered, I changed it to Canaan Smith’s song “Love You Like That”. The crowd went wild as they went into their first dance “Valentine’s Day” by Summertime’s End. I had never heard the song, but I liked it! As the first dance ended, the father of the bride welcomed everyone, blessed the food and then the dinner service began. It was a plated dinner and the food looked amazing!

After dinner, we cut the cake, had a couple of amazing toasts from the best man and maid of honor and then the parent dances (complete with a slideshow in the background). Molly and her dad danced to “You’ll Be In My Heart” by Phil Collins and Nick and his mother danced to “I Hope You Dance” by Leann Womack. Once that song ended, boom, dance floor packed for the rest of the night! We took a quick break for the bouquet and garter tosses, but it was really more about a full blown dance party. I played everything from Oldies to Top 40 to Arabic! What a mix! The night came to a close around 11:30 with everyone surrounding the couple as they danced to Lee Brice’s ballad “I Don’t Dance”. What a beautiful ending. I have to give props to all of the other amazing vendors there that night-Twenty-One Films, Brian Mullins Photography, and Fresh Affairs (Lyn and his team did an awesome job of bringing the outdoors inside). Great wedding!
