Melissa & Michael - August 28th
The Bond Ballroom is another facility that is a firm favorite of ours. With a downtown urban location overlooking Bushnell Park from the 11th Floor and a classic elegant interior decor with a 12th Floor balcony, it truly is a breathtaking. Elli and the staff, as usual, do an outstanding job making sure everything is just right.
Brian Ambrose Photography is a long time friend and associate of ours. Along with being one of our top recommended photographers, Brian & Kate are great to work with and know how to capture the event with flare and style.
Michael & Melissa also decided to pick all the songs for the reception. They picked a nice mix for friends and family to listen to during the Cocktail Hour, Dinner and dancing. Making sure that we played all those special songs was a priority and added to the unique nature of the reception.
After traditional introductions down the beautiful staircase, Michael & Melissa went into their First Dance. But, Melissa had a surprise for Michael. We had arranged and practiced ahead of time to have "God Bless The Broken Road" sung live. With the backing track played over our sound system and Steve Casillas with the wireless microphone singing live, this certainly added a beautifully and elegant touch to the start of the reception.
After dinner, Michael & Melissa's spirits were not damped by the rain and family and friends joined the Bride & Groom on the dance floor for some their favorites:
- James Morrison - Better Man
- James Morrison - You Give Me Something
- Percy Faith - Theme From A Summer Place
- Jackson 5 - I'll Be There (The Minus Remix)
- Kool & The Gang - Get Down On It
- Jennifer Lopez - Lets Get Loud
- Ne-Yo - Closer
- Rihanna - Disturbia
- Free - All Right Now
- Joe Cocker - Feelin' Alright
- Shania Twain - Man, I Feel like a Woman
- Five For Fighting - 100 Years

"We could not have asked for a better DJ. Your music reflected who we are as a couple and the reception was a success, because of your music and professionalism. You answered all my calls, hundreds of emails and gave me one on one personalized attention - something every bride needs. You are the best of the best. I will refer everyone looking for musical entertainment both in the private and corporate world to you!.... Your work will forever be a part of our family celebration - our wedding."
