Beautiful outdoor ceremony in the garden…

September 21, 2019

Idea Share: Run a video slideshow during the cocktail hour to tell your story and keep the focus on why everyone is gathered together.
Idea Share: Customize your wedding right down to matching colors of the bows on each chair.
The trend is no more guest books instead a picture frame that you can display on your wall complete your quotes and names of everyone attending. Also, create a time capsule with guest advice that you open up in 5, 10 or 20 years. Michelle & Tim used postcards.
Create a theme that fits you for a way for guests to find their table. Example here is to go to bag claim for seating assignment.
Toasts: Prepare the speakers on how long and the order of who is speaking.
End the toasts with a personal thank you to all the guests and how important everyone is to you.
The dances with the parents: Practice a little and pick a song with personal meaning to you.
Most important: Remember to fun dancing and creating lasting memories.
Line dances: They do work for maximum participation of all ages.
It’s cool to dance and have fun at a wedding!!!

A Special Note to the DJ…

Thank you Ryan! You helped iron out the evening as we were running so far behind. You did an amazing job and we were thrilled to have you as out DJ! And thanks for taking some photos as well, they didn’t go unnoticed!

“We had Ryan at our 50th wedding anniversary party. He did a fabulous job. He respected our wishes to keep the music loud enough for dancing but low enough for people to talk to each other. Our family had such a good time out of the dance floor with him. If we ever have another occasion to have the need for a DJ, Ryan will be the first we call. Thank you for such a great night.” -Jan & Arnie

1997 Music Montage

Another gem found in the vault of tapes, the 1997 music montage that was used when the clock turned 1998.

You had me at “Hello” and goodbye England’s Rose.

Music Montage 1994

This was found in our music vault tape collection. It’s something produced over 25 years ago. The eight minute review of 1994 is now available for the first time on the world-wide web. If we would do it today, it probably be 20-minutes or more with new stories of the era and more songs and other parts of the songs featured. Nevertheless, enjoy this piece of history.
