Bringing Boston VS New York to the dance floor!

Yankees vs Red Sox…Rangers vs Bruins…Knicks vs Celtics…Giants vs Patriots…the Boston/New York rivalry in sports dates all the way back to the days of Babe Ruth. But instead of professional sports, this past weekend we brought it to the dance floor (although in a much less heated setting)…

Ryan & Sarah got married this past Saturday at the “One & Only” Westmount Country Club and I had the honor of being their DJ and MC for the night. I didn’t get to meet with them face to face prior to the wedding but we did chat a few times and they were such a great couple and so easy to work with. For their first dance they chose an incredibly appropriate song called “Sara Smile” by Hall & Oates…and it was something our Sarah was doing all night. as we had a jamming dance floor with an amazing crowd.

About a week or so before the wedding they emailed me with an idea: Ryan’s family was mostly from Boston while Sarah’s was more local from NJ/NY. So they thought it would be a cool idea to have a dance/sing off between the two groups to some area appropriate music. For Boston, we had Shipping Up To Boston, Dirty Water, Centerfold, and of course Sweet Caroline plus a few others. For the NY/NJ contingent, we used New York State of Mind, Dancing In The Dark, It’s My Life, and New York, New York by Frank Sinatra. None of us were totally sure how this would go over but it honestly couldn’t have been better. We had two side of the dance floor absolutely packed with the faithful from that area and they were absolutely going crazy each time their song was played. It was definitely one of the better ways I’ve seen to personalize a wedding and leave a memory they won’t soon forget.
