The beautiful coastline of York, Maine was the perfect backdrop for Ben & Courtney’s wedding on May 28th. Friends and family came from near & far, including Ben’s family from Tennessee. Courtney’s Aunt from New York made their fantastic cake and their decore’ incorporated beautiful ocean colors, seashells, sand and blue candles – which were perfectly placed everywhere in the room.
I remember our first conversation with Courtney & Ben, they loved current music, but didn’t want a Dance Club atmosphere. They wanted their Disc Jockey to be friendly and outgoing and were looking for someone to orchestrate and coordinate all the details and formalties. When we asked them to describe how they envisioned their reception, they said: a fun, upbeat, classy, welcoming party fit for all ages and one that respected their Christian religion. They didn’t have a lot of time to choose music & compile a request list because of their very busy schedules, so they told us they trusted our experience and knowledge & were confident we would deliver a wonderful party.
Our flower girl, Sophia was quite the dancer and her special request: Dynamite, was a big hit on the dance floor! Other requests were Walking In Memphis, Sweet Home Alabama, Marry Me, Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough – just to name a few.
Thanks to Gwen from Gwen Pham Photography – we can’t wait to see some of her photos – which are sure to be gorgeous (we saw some of the fun poses)!
The staff and food at the Dockside were wonderful. A special thanks to the coordinator, Phil Landry. Paul the bartender, was very personable and made everyone feel welcome.
We are grateful that we met Courtney’s parents years ago – so when Courtney’s Dad, Fred recently bumped into Bob, he took our business card (since he was planning his daughter’s wedding). We were thrilled to be part of this amazing celebration. God Bless you Courtney & Ben, we wish you a wonderful future together (you are a very special couple).
