Cave Creek Smokehouse (formerly “The Silver Spur Saloon”, formerly “The Satisfied Frog”) is the place for your wedding if you like BBQ. Located in Frontier Town this location can give your wedding an old west feeling. The ceremony location is an old brick patio with a nice bridge overlooking a pond. The bride’s changing room is actually an old historical church at the top of the hill. Receptions are held in the tented dining area.
For this wedding the bride and groom selected “Ribbon In The Sky” by Stevie Wonder as the music for the entrance of the bridesmaids, “Marry Me” by Train for the bride and “Beautiful Day” by U2 for the recessional. “I Will Follow You” by Chris Tomlin was the song chosen for the unity sand ceremony. The bride and groom’s children were included in the sand ceremony.
All around, this was a family affair with the bride’s aunt serving as the oficiant and the groom’s uncle handling the photographer duties. The groom, being a welder by trade, fashioned his own very unique cake stand from a Harley Davidson gas tank, tail pipes, chains and sprockets.
After the ceremony and cocktail hour the wedding party were introduced to “I’ve Got A Feeling” by Black Eyed Peas. “It Will Always Be” by Willie Nelson was played for the bride and groom’s first dance, followed with “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac for the bride and father, then “What A Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong for the groom and his mother.
The bride and groom’s dance music list included Kiss, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Nickelback, Stevie Ray Vaughn, AC/DC, Cinderella, Def Leppard, Eric Clapton, Elvin Bishop and The Rolling Stones along with guest requests for everything from oldies to the most current popular dance music. The bride also shared a dance with her son to “Three Little Birds” by Bob Marley and the groom danced with his daughter to “My Little Girl” by Tim McGraw. Music selected for the bouquet and garter events was “Single Ladies” by Beyonce and “You Really Got Me” by Van Halen. The last dance of the evening was Beyonce’s version of “At Last”.
