Elizabeth & Matthew’s Vernon Downs Reception

Elizabeth & Matthew’s Vernon Downs Reception


December 4th, 2015

No comments

We wrapped up our very successful 2015 wedding season by celebrating with over 200 of Elizabeth and Matthew’s family and friends at Vernon Downs over Thanksgiving weekend.

Elizabeth and Matt met nearly 3 years prior to their wedding date at Magpie Irish Pub in Rochester after an online courtship (they joke they are still waiting for their commercial to be filmed).  After waiting patiently for Matt to propose on Thanksgiving 2014 it was clear Liz had a plan in place.  Within days she said she had almost every vendor booked for their reception and we were fortunate to be selected to provide the wedding entertainment and uplighting.

Elizabeth and Matt Vernon Downs First Dance

While the day itself was cold with some light snowflakes in the air, the room at Vernon Downs was elegant and the action on the dance floor was hot.  The goal was simple, mix in some of Liz and Matt’s favorite with a few selection from their guests and have people dance all night.  We accomplished that and then some!

After cocktail hour it was time for the introductions. The wedding party walked arm in arm to Safe and Sound by Capital Cities (one of the bride and groom’s favorites).  As the guests rose to their feet to welcome in Elizabeth and Matt they provided the crowd with an incredible welcome to Shake It Off by Taylor Swift.  As they entered the room the wedding party stood on the edge of the dance floor as the bride and groom shared their first dance to the Imagine Dragon’s cover of the legendary Stand by Me.

Following the first dance Elizabeth and her dad danced to My Little Girl by Tim McGraw and Matt and his mom danced to My Wish by Rascal Flatts.  At the conclusion of the formal dances were two wonderful toasts by Katie the Maid of Honor and Nic the Best Man. The blessing was a reading of Elizabeth’s grandfathers annual blessing.

Once the food was served and cake was cut it was time to party and dance.  Liz and Matt put together a phenomenal list of requests they wanted to hear.  We started out playing some 70’s and 80’s music to get the older gets on the dance floor before transitioning to many of their favorites including two of Matt’s monster jams: Like A Prayer (Glee Version) and Danza Kudoro from Don Omar.

Elizabeth and Matt Vernon Downs Wedding

Elizabeth and Matthew’s wedding was the perfect way to end our 2015 wedding season at one of our favorite venues to perform at.  It was great working with Tom Studios as they took the professional photos and Michelle and Frank from A Mad Affair Custom Events and Design as they decorated the room from top to bottom.
