Bethany & Carrie’s Wedding: August 20, 2010

It was a perfect day for their outdoor ceremony at Stanley Park and it was a perfect reception at the Log Cabin.

Bethany & Carrie Blair

From the start of their event, the energy and excitement level was incredible. Having DJed their Jill & Jill in July, I saw a lot of familiar faces who wanted the party to continue.

For the Grand Entrance I changed things up a bit. Instead of having guests stand at their tables during introductions, I asked them to form a semi-circle around the dance floor which created an intimate welcome for members of the wedding party.

The video below show’s Carrie’s two children making their entrance before the couple of honor. Notice the lime green and pink up lighting in the Southampton Room. Awesome.

The are cake cutting ceremonies and there’s cake cutting Martini style, which is my signature wedding event. I ask everyone to gather around the couple to serenade them to the song “That’s Amore”.

Guests are given lyric sheets and raise their napkins each time the word amore is sung. It’s hard to forget 120 voices singing and celebrating before the first piece of cake is even sliced.
