“Amazing, Amazing, Amazing…. The Best Time of my Life”- Alexandra and Patrick’s Wedding Reception at The Brownstone

I knew it was going to be a great night when Alexandra wanted me to play You Make My Dreams Come True by Hall and Oates for the cake cutting-   It was delightfully-obvious that there was going to be plenty of positive energy in the room when I saw about 30 guests from Alexandra’s church choir stand up and start and sing their hearts out during the blessing-   And, there was no doubt in my mind that all of the steps that Alexandra and Patrick took to personalize their wedding reception would pay off big-time.

As you can tell from their candid video testimonial that they gave after all of the guests said goodbye, my premonitions were on point.   It was an exceptional evening at The Brownstone.

*Wedding Planning  Nugget: If you ever need a great song with a little country flair to dedicate to your sister, I think Alexandra may have found the perfect track, My Sister My Friend by Reba McEntire. It’s a happy, mid-tempo, lyrically appropriate track that you can put into a photo montage, play during dinner or dance to as an event feature.

A Wedding for the Kennedy’s at the Brownstone: What’s In A Name?

It’s not very often that you get the chance to provide the entertainment for royalty. 🙂  I had the honor of introducing Mr. and Mrs. Sean & Shannon Kennedy last week at The Brownstone, in Paterson, NJ.

Of all the names I’ve seen a bride take when she got married, Shannon pretty much hit the jackpot. Over the years, I’ve seen brides marry into last names like Lipschitze, Krapper and Bumpass.  But Shannon, who already had a nice Irish last name to begin with, Ryan….is now set for life.

You can tell a lot about your clients by the toasts.  When Shannon’s maid of honor and sister, Alyson, spoke after the blessing, she let everyone know what a special person Shannon was.  As you can see from the photo, Shannon is one of the fortunate few who have been blessed with beauty both inside and out. When Sean’s best man, Nathan, took the mic, he let everyone know how Sean exemplified the meaning of true friendship. He shared a story about how Sean would make long road trips after a full day of personal obligations just so he could visit with his college friends for a few hours.

Everybody agreed, Shannon and Sean found their soul mate and will live happily ever after, just like a royal couple should.

Special thanks to Jennifer from Jennifer Davis Photography who captured the Kennedy’s having the time of their life in our feature photo.   Jennifer and her team were a pleasure to work with. She’s also got a great blog if you’d like to see more of her artistry.

You’ll notice at the end of the video testimonial that Shannon and Sean mentioned how smoothly the reception flowed. This can only be accomplished when the staff of the venue is on board with our production agenda and timeline. Special thanks to Alberto and Gary from the Brownstone for their professionalism and hospitality.  We’ll be back next month for another wedding and then again in December so we are looking forward to more successful collaborations. -mp
