The wedding of Lauren and Ross actually was the second of two back-to-back weddings that I DJ’d this weekend, both at the Fontainebleau Inn. It also happened to be the nicest weekend of weather we’ve had all summer. It was just about as perfect a day as you could ask for.
Lauren and I had had many conversations leading up to the wedding. As I got to know her more it became apparent that she is one of the most considerate people I know. Imagine being the person hired to work at her wedding and about the first thing she asks me upon arrival is whether there is anything she can do for me. That’s the kind of person Lauren is… always thinking of everyone else.
This was a joyous day; one that included the bringing together of Lauren with Ross and his daughter Jessica. They had their wedding ceremony at lakeside.
At the conclusion of the ceremony, everyone made their way up to the patio for cockatil hour. After the formal introductions, Lauren and Ross had their first dance to a great song by the Jayhawks, “I’m gonna make you love me”. The Father-Daughter dance was done to the song “True Grit” by Glen Campbell and then Ross danced with his daughter to the song “Hoodoo Voodoo” by Wilco.
Lauren and Ross both have a love for music. They provided me with a great list of song suggestions, one in which I discovered some new music that I was not familiar with. Now as a person who already owns over 8,000 CD’s you might think that there couldn’t possibly be music that I wasn’t familiar with. Ha! Thanks guys, for helping expand my music horizons.
I’m so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with so many wonderful couples and families. Lauren and Ross, you guys are the best and I wish you a long happy marriage.
