We had the pleasure of providing DJ as photography services for Ashley and John at The English Manor. Alex Cameron and Chris Catania spun the tunes and got everyone dancing. Alex filed this report:
This past Sunday, was a night of many firsts for myself. It was one of the first times in my career where I felt out of my comfort zone…and I LOVED IT. John and Ashley arrived at the fantastic English Manor with the “Cantina Band Music” from Star Wars and other movie related music for cocktail hour. As you could probably tell already, it was a movie themed wedding. Many of the songs throughout the night were from famous movies. Classics like Johnny Be Goode from “Back to the Future”, Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison from “Pretty Woman”, Twist and Shout from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and many more. John and Ashley Foglia were old at heart, so a majority of the music was between the 1950s and 1980s. This was before my time so I had to buck up on my music history. The night started off better than I expected. The dance-floor was filled and their request list helped tremendously. After the cake cutting ceremony, I did another first. I had the pleasure of leading the “Shoe Game”. I had to put on my Richard Dawson cap for this one. For those who don’t know what it is, the Shoe Game is when you seat the bride and groom back to back. The bride and groom have their shoe and the other’s shoe in each hand. I then asked them a series of questions to whom they think describes their tendencies. The fun part is that the bride and groom can’t see each other and can only interpret the answers through the audience. The questions that got the best responses from the audience were, “Who reads the most?(because they’re both librarians)”, “Who is more organized?”, “Who is the most stubborn?” Obviously, they both had different answers for those questions. The most notable question was the last one: “Who do you love more than anyone in the entire world?” The response was overwhelmingly positive which led to a round of applause and end to the wonderful Shoe Game. The rest of the night was a breeze. The newest mixer at Elite, Chris, and myself rocked out to some AC/DC, Van Halen and Meatloaf. Ashley and John were beyond thankful for a great evening. As John was leaving, he gave a firm handshake and said, “Tonight was perfect”. A wedding of firsts turned into another successful Elite wedding! Once again, Congratulations to John and Ashley Carvagno.
