When I first met Kimberly and Jeremy I knew their wedding reception was going to be amazing in so many ways….from the music selection, to the wedding theme, to the personal touches that we created throughout our planning process.
Their Peacock-themed celebration was beautifully decorated by wedding planner, Susie Davis of A Plan to Remember and Rachel Bond of Pine Hills Florist. The reception began at 3:00pm with guests signing in and writing ‘marriage advice’ at their respective tables. I really enjoyed reading some of the comments later in the evening during dinner.
Their family and friends were very engaged with the activities that we had in store for them throughout the evening…like from the very beginning of the grand entrance into their first dance, we surprised everyone with their First Dance personalized voice over (Kim and Jeremy recorded sweet messages to each other prior to the big day and I edited the special comments into their first dance). Upon hearing their personalized recording, both the bride and groom and their guests were in awe! They danced to Keith Urban’s “Making memories of us.”
Afterwards, Kimberly had a collection of photographs of her and her dad that she made into a slide show. During the father/daughter dance, the slide show ran and guests got to watch both their dance and sweet pics of ‘days gone by’ as they danced to Krystal Keith’s “Daddy dance with me.”
Later, Jeremy enjoyed a special moment with his mom as they danced to “My wish” by Rascal Flatts.
Guests loved the crazy fun of the Photobooth by Party Down Photobooth company.
After dinner, toasts, and the cake cutting ceremony, we surprised Kimberly and Jeremy’s guests again with a Newlywed Game and followed up by inviting everyone out with the crazy fun song, “Harlem Shake.”
The guests had a great time dancing and visiting; after all, weddings are like family reunions, too, which is why they are so much fun and memorable.
A special thanks to some of my favorite wedding vendors on the Gulf Coast for making Jeremy and Kimberly’s wedding so much fun and memorable.
