The wedding party entered the room to “Get On The Floor” by Jennifer Lopez.  Jamie and TJ entered the room to applause and the song “Chelsea Dagger” (one of my favorites).  The couple had their first dance to Miranda Lambert’s “Making Plans” immediately after their entrance.

The Father of the Bride, Tom Dunn, offered a warm welcome speech and dinner was served after a prayer by Pastor Tim Truesdell of Christ’s Family Church.

Later, toasts were offered by Shannon and Josh, Maid of Honor and Best Man.

Jamie was a member of the University of Iowa Dance Team, and at 10:00 she, along with her friends from the team, did a special performance of the Iowa Fight Song!

Below are some photos highlighting the elegant and fun event:

We used battery powered uplighting to create an uncluttered look which was important since the lighting was on the window sills.

Jamie and Andrew: A Country Club Wedding Reception

A beautiful day was in store on May 12, 2012 for the new Mr. and Mrs. Jamie and Andrew Porter and their Davenport Country Club Wedding Reception.  We were there to provide cocktail and dinner music, introduce the wedding party and provide music for the formal first dances.  The popular local band, Funktastic 5 took over at 9PM to heat up the dance floor.

Davenport Country Club, as always, was exceptionally elegant, and underwent some renovations over the winter to give the venue a new look.

Jamie and Andrew were an excellent couple to work with; very friendly and photogenic!

Here are some photo highlights of the evening:

Guests were able to enjoy the newly added wine cellar decor in the club’s elegant bar area.

Our equipment set up was directly in front of the band.  Jamie and Andrew had their first dance around 8:40PM and danced to “At Last” by Etta James.  When I finished my set at 9 PM we had our equipment and table removed within a few minutes so the transition from DJ to Band barely missed a beat!
