This was truly an honor, DJing for this awesome couple, Barbara and Maureen. They got married at The Mill Lakeside Manor in Spring Lake.
First of all they got the most incredible day you could possibly image. It was the last day of September and the weather was just glorious. As someone who has supported marriage equality from day one (in fact, I don’t even understand why it’s an issue) I had to think, “this is God smiling down and showing full approval for this marriage.”
There are lots of memorable things about Barbara and Maureen’s wedding but the one that I will probably never forget is that at the end of their ceremony, this couple literally danced down the aisle. They had chosen Natalie Cole’s “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)” for their recessional song and let’s face it, it’s almost impossible to hear that song and not dance. And sure enough as they exited their ceremony, to the passionate cheers of their family and friends, THEY DANCED. It was one of the most endearing and indelible moments I’ve ever witnessed at a wedding.
Unfortunately in that spot it’s impossible for me to get a picture so afterwards I asked Barbara and Maureen’s photographer, Christopher Huston, if he could share any of those images with me. Wouldn’t you know the very next day I had these great shots sitting in my email.
If you want to connect with Christopher Huston follow this link for his website and be sure to like his Facebook page right here. Thanks Chris! (BTW the shot at the top of this blog is my own rudimentary picture from my iPhone. It’s not to be confused with Chris’ professional images.)
After the ceremony everyone moved inside and it was time to party. Sometimes an afternoon reception can lack some of the energy of an evening celebration but that was not the case for Barbara and Maureen. Their family and friends had come to have a great time and it didn’t matter what time of day it was. A great time was had by all!
Congratulations Barbara and Maureen!
After the wedding Maureen and Barbara offered me this very nice review on WeddingWire
