From Sue and Chad…

Sue and Chad got married last June and sent this email to Yves shortly after the wedding. Sue was great to work with, an event planner by trade, she knew what she wanted and was very organized (we love that) but when it came time to party it was off the hook!


Thank you so much for helping throw an AMAZING party on Friday night.  I can’t tell you how many people have reached out to tell me Nite-Time might be the best band they have ever heard…

The music is such an important part of a wedding and you guys 150% delivered for me!  Chad was so surprised by all the songs you learned for us and I couldn’t be more thankful to you for your efforts.  I will send you a formal thank you for your files in the next week or so.
Thank you again!!!!!
Best Regards,

Stephanie and Adam

Date: 10/2/10

Location: Roton Point, Rowayton, CT

First Dance: Nobody But Me, Lou Rawls

Stephanie and Adam’s wedding was quite unique and a lot of fun for the guests and the band. First off, it was in one of the most beautiful settings we’ve encountered this season. Right on the water on Roton Point in Rowayton, CT.

The Ceremony






The sun was shining off of the bay when the guests first arrived, which gave the perfect back drop to Stephanie and Adam’s ceremony, which was personalized by several readings from friends and family. It adds so much to have these personal touches as part of the ceremony.





The format that Stephanie and Adam chose for their reception was a bit different from the norm. It’s a great way to do it though, more of a European style wedding.


Guests Cocktailing






They chose to have their cocktail hour directly after the ceremony, which is pretty standard, but they served dinner in it’s entirety, family style, before any dancing took place.


Tables Set Beautifully for Family Dinner








During the cocktail hour they chose solo guitar to set the tone for guests to mingle, have a drink (or two) and sample some delicious appetizers.





During dinner the upright bass and saxophone were added to the solo guitar to form a jazz trio that was the perfect backdrop to their meal.

What I haven’t mentioned up to this point is that Adam is Australian, and there is a tradition in Australia that you have a friend MC the event. We’ve encountered this tradition before, but not so hilariously as we did when their friends Craig and Joe took the mic that night. They had the group in stitches with stories and jokes about the happy couple that they interspersed with the music.

After dinner Nite-Time‘s full compliment of musicians took over. Starting with Stephanie and Adam’s first dance, we proceeded to play dance music that kept the crowd up and moving until the end of the night. It was another successful wedding for another great and unique couple.

One more fun fact: at the end of the night we said goodbye to Stephanie and Adam and asked Adam where they were going on their honeymoon. He told us he could not divulge any details, because it was a secret still well hidden from Stephanie. Too intriguing!  As Adam put it, “she’ll find out when we get to the airport.” I still wonder where they went. I’ll have to ask when they get back!


It’s been really fun going through all our past client correspondence. I can’t believe I didn’t do this sooner. Kristin and Ira were great. They got married at the 76 House in Tappan, NY last December. It was a beautiful afternoon wedding, but don’t let the proper tone of this email fool you. They cut loose that afternoon with all their friends like it was 3am and the club was jumpin’!

Dear Yves,

Thank you so much for creating the perfect soundtrack for our wedding day. The song choices, from our first dance to the final number, fit our theme flawlessly. Needless to say our guests were very impressed. Nite-Time has garnered our deepest regard and we gladly provide our highest recommendation.

All the Best,
Kristin & Ira
