Jenny & Glenn were married on her parents’ farm in Eliot on Saturday, August 6th.
We’ve known the Goransson family for quite a few years and were honored to be part of this amazing day. Nancy was hired as the week of and day of wedding coordinator, for this huge event and put her amazing organizational skills to work to deal with details & alleviate last minute stress for this special family.
As with any outside event on private property, there are many important people to work with… rental company (for tent, tables, chairs, linens, plates, silverware, portable bars), caterer, baker, florist, VIP trailer/bathroom facilities, lighting, electricity, etc. etc. Reflections Salon in Somersworth and Face First/Lisa Lawrence, members of the Seacoast Wedding Group (a networking group we belong to), were also involved in this great day – doing a beautiful job with everyone’s hair and makeup. Ann Barbi, also of the Seacoast Wedding Group coordinated their honeymoon trip to Hawaii.
The wedding colors were navy blue & yellow (colors of the Swedish flag). Jenny’s brother Peter was one of her attendants and Glenn’s best friend, Leslie was one of his attendants. Jenny’s Aunt Leslie performed a beautiful, meaningful ceremony as the cows and bulls casually grazed in the back field.
Almost 200 of their closest friends and family joined them in the fabulous celebration. A couple highlights of the evening were a surprise Flash Mob, Jenny’s mom, Helen, organized and a sing along to an old Swedish lullabye Jenny’s grandfather used to sing to her Dad, Paul; followed by a traditional Swedish dance. Jenny’s request for her special Father/Daughter dance was “Lullabye” by Billy Joel which I blended into “El Africano” by Wilfrido Vargas.
Once the dancing started, there was no stopping the FUN, the dance floor never seemed to be big enough. The energy level was over the top, you could gauge how much people were dancing, by how soaked their clothes were. There were some wild requests and crazy dance routines; it was a night filled with making great memories. As we ended the evening, so many of the guests kept coming by to thank us for creating a wonderful, unique evening they would remember for years to come. When we hear these comments, we are reminded of why we love to DJ & why we specialize in weddings!
We can’t wait to see the video that Sara McCormick of McCormick Media will be putting together.
