The ceremony began promptly at 3:30pm. Prior to the ceremony, I played some instrumental jazz and other wedding instrumental songs.The following tracks were played during the ceremony:
"Ave Maria" (opera style) ----------- Played while the mothers were being seated and groomsmen entered
"All You Need Is Love" (Beatles) Instrumental --------Played while the bridesmaids entered.
"Somewhere Over The Rainbow" - Iz ------ Played while the bridesmaids / ringers entered
"What A Wonderful World" - Iz --------- Played while Chloe entered.
"Amazing Grace" [piano instrumental] ----- Played while Chloe & Alan tied their ceremonial knot.
"Ripple" --- Grateful Dead ---- Recessional Song
Following the ceremony, there was a one hour cocktail hour out in the back of the club near the pool. Chloe & Alan went to get some photographs on the beach while the guests enjoyed some cocktails.
"Free--Into The Mystic" [Zac Brown Band with Jimmy Buffett] LIVE: It was a very long first dance for Chloe & Alan at 7 minutes and 25 seconds. We had discussed shortening this but the song was very difficult to edit, so it was decided to keep it as is. Chloe & Alan danced alone for the first part of the song "Free". During the transition between the songs, I invited others to join them on the dance floor. It made for a great moment.
"Hit Me With Your Best Shot" ---- Pat Benatar
"Sexy And I Know It" ---- LMFAO
CAKE CUTTING SONG
"How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)" ---- James Taylor
SEND OFF SONG
"I've Had The Time Of My Life" ---- Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes (Dirty Dancing Soundtrack)
The send off was held with glow sticks and all and I stopped the music for a bit for a break while Chloe & Alan took a brief break and left the club. They came back a while later and I began to play again for the "After Party".
It was a night of fun and great dancing and I was honored to no end and still smile when I think about it to see Chloe's 82 year old grandfather get up and attempt to get up and do The Wobble.
I wish Chloe and Alan the greatest of happiness and wish them a great time on their honeymoon down to the beautiful St. Lucia.
