It was a mix of traditional and modern at Dana + Harry’s wedding and reception. They opted for a traditional ceremony at a church, incorporating their own modern flair as the evening continued. They chose to hold their reception at the Bluewater Grill in Hermosa Beach, the downstairs of which is an upscale restaurant, while the upstairs is reserved for special events such as Dana + Harry’s. There were about 75 guests, all of whom were more than ready to celebrate! We started the evening off with Dana + Harry’s Grand Entrance (“Signed, Sealed, Delivered“), segued directly into the first dance (“Cupid’s Victim” – a special request of the bride and groom), and after dinner was served, moved into the father/daughter dance (“Blessed“).
As the night continued, we built the energy inviting guests onto the floor with our party medleys, playing everything from “Billie Jean” to “Blurred Lines,” playing a little bit of everything to keep the wide range of guests pleased. Dana + Harry opted for a dessert table in lieu of a traditional wedding cake, but wanted to stick with the good old fashioned bouquet toss (“Single Ladies” – yes, I sang it!), and of course the garter toss for the guys (“Let’s Get It On“).
From there, it was a free for all dance party until every last guest was beat. The evening went on so long we had to pull out all the stops, digging into some of our more down and dirty material (“I Wanna Be Your Lover,” “Kiss,” “SexyBack,” “Hold On, We’re Goin’ Home“). It was definitely a night to remember for everyone who was there.
