The party truly began with the wedding dance. Megan let her hair down and added a Kate Spade necklace for the celebration. I can't tell you which song was played during their first dance, because I was too distracted watching their fancy footwork (dance lessons paid off), and I was thinking of all the happy times that lay ahead. I smiled as Dale did a great job with "My Girl" during the Father-Daughter Dance.
The Spectrum Band was amazing with a wide repertoire of oldies and classic rock-and-roll hits. The 9-piece ensemble filled the stage with sax, trombone, trumpet, bass, keyboard, drums, percussion, plus male and female vocalists. We were impressed, and the crowd was obviously pleased as the dance floor stayed full all evening (even Melanie danced from her wheelchair).
Guests could linger by the full bar in the lounge by the fireplace or watch from the loft, which also had an open bar. The hot drinks table was also getting a lot of attention with hot cocoa, cider, coffee, marshmallows, chocolate stirring sticks, gold straws, and six flavors of creamer. Not to mention the monogrammed coffee sleeves. I told you that Megan thought of everything.
The photo booth was busy all night, too. Its gold backdrop added glitz to the crazy props.
About 10 pm, a doughnut truck arrived. This was a nod to the AGD doughnut tradition, but with a twist, because the man makes gourmet-flavored frostings for his glazed doughnuts. A foodie's dream!
About 11 pm, there was a delivery of Imo's Pizza (Spencer's favorite local shop). Hot and tasty "midnight snack" to end the perfect evening.
