Michelle and Mike saw us at Jamie and Bill’s wedding out at Salt Air Farm in 2012 and like Jamie and Bill they are huge classic rock fans. They love Pearl Jam and chose songs by the band both to start and to end their night. It was a lot of fun getting to really rock out and Yves did a great job channeling his inner Eddie Vedder!

For the cocktail hour, which was jammed packed with every imaginable kind of food and drink, Danny played solo guitar versions of rock classics while the guests mingled and munched.

Next the party moved into the main ballroom. We brought in the couple’s parents with the Hall and Oates classic You Make my Dreams Come True and we announced the bridal party with Michael Jackson’s Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough. Michelle and Mike entered to Signed,  Sealed, Delivered by Stevie Wonder, but they chose the Pearl Jam ballad Future Days for their first dance. The song is heartfelt and beautiful, a perfect choice for a first dance.

We had a great time playing Michelle and Mike’s special requests which included Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins, Free by Zac Brown Band and Run Around by Blues Traveller. Michelle danced with her dad to Billy Preston’s You Are So Beautiful to Me. She specifically asked that we sing the second verse, which is often left out and is not in the popular version by Joe Cocker. It was a very sweet moment. Mike chose My Wish by Rascal Flatts as his dance with his mom, which always gets folks choked up.

For the last dance of the night the couple requested that we play Yellow Ledbetter by Pearl Jam, a song that I honestly never knew had real words 🙂 Yves did a great job singing them though, whatever they are! Of course, all of Michelle and Mike’s friends got out on the floor and made it one of those awesome moments that we love, when everyone comes together.

We had a lot of fun with Michelle and Mike’s musical selections and their fun loving dancing crowd. Here are some more fun pics from the night…

Michelle and Mike had all of their guests put their thumbprint and name on this drawing. They formed the leaves of the tree and will be a keepsake for the couple forever. Cool!

Knigi and Bogdan had an intimate wedding upstairs at The Water Club on the East River in NYC. They found us online and hired a slightly smaller five piece version of Nite-Time to fit the space. They had their dancing shoes on from the get go, as did their guests. This couple truly enjoyed their day and each other. They chose the iconic You Are So Beautiful by Joe Cocker as their first dance which our amazing Danny Powers sang to perfection.

All in all the celebration was warm and joyous with plenty of dancing. Knigi’s mom and Bogdan’s dad shared a special dedication dance with Bogdan’s mom and Knigi’s uncle. We had a great time and the guests really appreciated the music. We are so happy to have been a part of this wonderful couple’s most special day.
