Megan and Patrick planned their St Patrick’s Day Wedding at Doolan’s in Spring Lake and I had the honor of being their MC and DJ. They planned a lot of cool and unique events so their wedding would stand out and it certainly did. Whether it was the green uplighting we provided, the Irish figurines that were at each table (and got awarded to the guest at each table with the shamrock under their cake plate) or the beautiful Irish dancer who entertained their guests right before dinner, Megan and Patrick put their personal stamp on their day with just the right amount of Irish flare.
But some of what stood out for me at Megan and Patrick’s wedding wasn’t planned by them. Their toasts are a great example. Patrick’s father had passed away just weeks before their wedding and so the first two toasts (given by the two best men) were extremely emotional. But then came Megan’s sisters to lighten the mood. Kelli talked about Megan’s Grease! obsession then Maura rapped her toast over an instrumental of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme.
The dance floor at Megan and Patrick’s wedding was always packed. They’d given me a ton of requests and I got to as many as I could and they were all great choices. Their guests danced to everything from Dion’s “The Wanderer” to Prince’s “Kiss.” And of course we played some Irish sing-alongs like “Wild Rover.” And we ended the night with the live version of Garth Brook’s “Friends In Low Places” (the one with the lost verse) just as Megan and Patrick had picked. It was an unforgettable night for everyone involved and I wish Megan and Patrick all the luck in the world.
