Another fun wedding at Bella Giardino in Phoenix.
Music for the outdoor #wedding ceremony included “Falling For You” by Colbie Callait for the bridesmaids, “Mary Me” by Train for the bride’s entrance and “Will You Go With Me” by Josh Turner for the recessional. Making the ceremony even more special was the violin performance by the groom’s sister during the unity sand ceremony.
Immediately after the ceremony guests had fun using the #Photo Booth during the cocktail hour. Guests were invited to pick up their dinner seating assignments which were printed as sports tickets to match the wedding’s sports theme.
The bride’s brother did a great job of introducing the wedding party with his “Michael Buffer – Let’s Get Ready To Rumble” impersonation. The music played for the wedding party was the instrumental version of “Remember The Name” by Linkin Park. The bride and groom were introduced to “Bad Boys” (Theme from “Cops” TV show) since the groom is a police officer.
Right after the introductions the bride and groom began their first dance “Then” by Brad Paisley. Toasts were made by the best man and maid of honor followed by a thank you from the bride and groom to all the guests and a blessing before the meal by the groom’s father. Some nice soft jazz music accompanied the meal.
After dinner the dance floor opened with a dance for the bride and her father “100 Years” by Five for Fighting, followed with a dance for the groom and his mother “Dream Big” by Ryan Shupe and The Rubber Band. The dance floor was then opened with an invitation for all the guests to join the bride and groom and the evening’s fun began.
The groom’s parents surprised everyone when they danced to their wedding song “Pick Up The Pieces” by The Average White Band. Then the groom and groomsmen recreated a moment from the movie “Top Gun” when they decided to sing “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” by Righteous Brothers to the bride.
The guests took it upon themselves to form a “party train” at one point during the dancing.
The garter and bouquet events were a lot of fun and the money dance was a great success.
