One of the things I find funniest about this industry is how random yet cyclical where exactly I’m working can be. I feel like I go through spurts where I’m either really close or pretty far. Right now I’m in the middle of a block of weddings that are not exactly around the corner from me. That’s in no way a complaint, I actually enjoy traveling to new halls and places that I’ve never worked at, but just an observation.
This past weekend, Thomas Williams and I travelled out to Blue Bell, Pennsylvania to Blue Bell Country Club as we celebrated with Ralph & Nathalie on their big day. (side note: for as much as I enjoy traveling to new and different reception locations, I’m obsessed with and love playing golf and everytime I work on a golf course a little piece of my soul is broken…but I digress). I’ve actually know Ralph for a number of years. Jeff Kaufman, one of my closest friends and now fiance to my wife’s best friend Aubri Fouts, is a good friend of Ralph so we have actually hung out a few times. Before the wedding started, I actually asked Jeff how he thought the night would go and he told me that he saw this wedding definitely being a 9 out of 10 (my wedding being a 10 of 10 so none will ever reach that lol). You could definitely feel the energy in the room for the introductions, but being in Pennsylvania, it wouldn’t be until after the main courses that I would find out that he could not have been more right. This was the epitome of a party crowd. Nathalie’s family is Spanish so in addition to the commerical and classic hits I played, we sprinkled in a good amount of reggaeton as well as some merengues and bachatas and we had that dance floor absolutely slammed all night long.
Congrats again to the new Mr. & Mrs. Ernst and I hope you guys have an amazing time on your honeymoon to Bali!!!
