6/30/12 – Jessica and Bryan Rego Wedding

Posted in Weddings at 1:55 am by Administrator

This was a very interesting wedding. It took place in Historic Bristol, RI right before there 4th Of July Festivities. On Friday, June 29th I meet both Bryan and Jessica at noon on site to take a look and see how things would be layed out since I was doing music for the Ceremony, Cocktail, Dinner and Dancing parts of the night.

The layout was nice, wished I would have take a few pictures. It was extremly humid being right on the water front under a tent. She had a company come in a hang Chinese Lanterns. She also highered in a Steel Drum artist for before the ceremony and for cocktail hour in the cabin that was on a hill.

Early afternoon was really nice in Bristol. I left a little early in case of traffice but there really was none so I have not been there in a long time so I drove the parade route and it was decorated beautfully. I then headed over to Mount Hope Farm to start loading in.

When I got there it was the same time as the caterers who were also running the bar that night. They explained the tent company screwed up putting the floor down. As soon as the Bride and Groom arrived she was upset cause of the layout and I just reminded her that if that is the only thing that goes wrong today it was a really good day and not to sweat it, we will make it work.

I started playing music for the Ceremony a little early around 4:20 or so. Ceremony was starting at 5:00pm. Guests slowly started trickling in and the ceremony started a few minutes late due some late arriving guests and that was ok. Jessica is a very big Disney person so her choice for the Ceremony music was all Disney songs.

After the Ceremony they had a small cocktail hour at the cabin on the hill overlooking the tent for the reception. During the Cocktail hour the father of the bride arranged for a Mickey and Minnie to show up and that was a nice touch.

At around 6:00 pm I lined up our bridal party and every one was ready for the fun to start. They decieded to go with a Will Smith themed Entrance. It was pretty cool. Songs ranging from his days in the 80’s up till the early 90’s and it was really different. Due to some logistics issues I had to play a song while I moved a speaker so both would be under the tent. We did the 1st dance right off the bat and they picked Rhythm Of Love/ Can’t Help Falling In Love by Straight No Chaser which is a vocal group with no instruments they each do different instruments with there voices….

The speechs were great, the Maid of Honor the Brides Sister talked about how Bryan had planned on proposing in Disney on one of there trips. Then the best man went and his speech was up there as well. Dinner went a little long and that is ok cause they had stations of Beef and Chicken, many different types of Potatoes and Deserts.

After  the bride and groom walked the tent for a bit we did the cake cutting and formalities. They bought some glow necklaces which was a nice touch for open dancing. Once the dancing started the energy stayed there until it was time to end at 10:30 since there is a noise ordinance in Bristol. Overall it was one of the best weddings that I have done outside in a long time.

Keep checking back for the play list from that night…..
