Angela & Chris - New Orleans Flavor To Their Wedding

09 November 2015

Angela & Chris came from the city of New Orleans and when asked why the Lowcountry to get married, their excuse was it was halfway between New Orleans and Baltimore for the families of both to come and celebrate their love. Back in September, Angela contacted me and booked me for November 7th at the Woodlands Mansion. The Woodlands Mansion is a premiere venue in the Summerville area.

Temperatures  were well above normal for November standards in the Lowcountry, but not totally out of the question. Temperatures were in the low 80s at the time of the ceremony around the 3pm timeframe.
PRE-CEREMONY: Jazz / Instrumental

BRIDAL PARTY PROCESSIONAL:  Marry Me (Instrumental) - Train
BRIDE PROCESSIONAL: "All Of Me" - John Legend
RECESSIONAL: "Happy" - Pharrell Williams

After their lovely ceremony, folks congregated over to the venue where cocktails awaited after the warm afternoon. The sounds of Marley and Santana and other reggae artists were the focus of the cocktail hour.  At the end of the cocktail hour and photos, we proceeded to introduce the bridal party and allow Angela & Chris to do their first dance.

FIRST DANCE: "At Last" - Etta James
SPECIAL DANCE: "All My Life" - Linda Ronstadt / Aaron Neville (after first dance)
BRIDE / FATHER DANCE: "Life Is Beautiful" - The Afters
GROOM / MOTHER DANCE: "My Wish" - Rascal Flatts

BOUQUET TOSS SONG: "Diva" - Beyonce

GARTER TOSS SONG: "I'm Too Sexy" - Right Said Fred
SPECIAL SONG FOR CHRIS: "No One Like You" - The Scorpions

Angela and her bridal party did a special dedication to Chris all equipped with guitars. "No One Like You" by the Scorpions

LAST DANCE: "Here & Now" - Luther Vandross --- followed by a sparkler send-off from the Woodlands Mansion as Angela & Chris were getting ready to head to Belize for their honeymoon.
