It was a beautiful day for Alida and Paul as they celebrated their marriage at the beautiful Fontainebleau Inn in Alpine, NY. They had a lakeside ceremony followed by reception and the weather, although a bit humid, was rainfree and that alone was a major accomplishment given the weather we’ve been experiencing this summer in Central New York.
This was the first time I have worked with the caterers that Alida and Paul had selected. The caterers where none other than the world famous Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. Oh my, what a wonderful treat it was to have such a fun caterer… pulled pork, bar-b-q chicken, salt potatoes, salad, baked beans, cornbread and the oh-so-famous Dinosaur sauce. It was awesome and judging by all the comments I heard, everyone agreed.
The Maid of Honor, Annalee Murphy and Best Man, James Cook gave the toasts while Tom Lucie gave the blessing before the meal.
Alida and Paul’s first dance was “Something” by the Beatles. The Father/Daughter dance was “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” by Israel K. and the Mother/Groom dance was “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts.
It was a crazy night on the dancefloor punctuated by a surprise slide show that the bridesmaids put together for the Bride and Groom. The slide show had an added benefit of giving everyone about 15 minutes of rest. LOL. In spite of the heat and humidity everyone danced like there was no tomorrow.
One of the hottest songs of the night was the Chris Brown song “Forever”. C’mon… you’ve seen the YouTube video right? Just to clairfy, this video is not from Alida and Paul’s wedding but a recent “hot” video on YouTube featuring the song…
Thank you Paul and Alida for having me be your DJ and MC. It was a real pleasure for me and I wish you both all my best wishes for a long and happy marriage.
