Here’s the story of Nina (now Thompson) and her husband James!
Wow! What a way to begin the new year! It was January 4th 2013 Nina and her fiancé James arrived at the Versailles Ballroom (of The Ramada in Toms River) overjoyed to be getting married. And how could they not be? They had Elite Video, Elite Digital Images and Yours Truly as their Elite Entertainer on the scene to create new memories! Adding to the fun was an Elite Photobooth (and Elite’s purple uplighting surrounded the room).
To open the festivities I played “Don’t Stop The Party” by Pitbull as their recessional (to end the ceremony)! The bridal party and guests danced their way into cocktail hour!
Being a younger crowd, the parents and bridal party then were introduced into their reception to “Let’s Go” by Calvin Harris ft. Ne-Yo! After which i quieted the crowd and dropped “We Found Love” by Rihanna for Nina & James! Of course the bridal party was into it so we let the song play and they all danced, half filling the floor for a few minutes more!
The first dance (“I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz) and parent dances (“I Loved Her First” by Heartland, and “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts) went wonderfully.
Soon it was party time and the dance floor was packed! There were a few audience songs (Cupid Shuffle and the Wobble), but mostly it was dance/pop music with not much in the way of oldies! There was some latin music as well, “Que Precio Tiene El Cielo” by Marc Anthony (salsa) and “Suavemente” by Elvis Crespo (merengue).
We had to take a little break from dancing so that James could try to shove cake into Nina’s face! There was a jump fest for the bouquet! James did a mock strip tease for the garter and then tossed it to the boys! The garter made its way up another young lady’s leg before it was party time again!
Nina and James, along with family and friends, partied the rest of the night away before they had to say good night and good bye (due to James’ enlistment and subsequent assignment on the west coast)!
