Casa Ybel Resort played host to the couples beach ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner reception. Songs for the event included “Marry Me” by Train as she walked down the aisle, “Crash” by Dave Matthews for their first dance and “You Got It” by the all time great Roy Orbison. Great group of people from Illinois and the happy couple are located in Arkansas. Antigua here they come!

That’s right, twice in one day! We almost made it though the ceremony and the sky started to unload on the wedding party. We went back inside the beautiful Lido Beach Resort in Sarasota and started from the beginning. Best part is that I was able to play the ceremony twice!
We had a great cocktail set and at the end of the first dance, the bride and groom jumped on the swimming pool in full attire! I stayed overnight and relaxed around the pool the next day with their amazing group of guests. Thanks Desiree and Skip for an awesome weekend!

Nothing, even rain showers, could stop this couple from their Pink Shell wedding on Ft. Myers Beach. Awesome ceremony song selection: “Collide” by Howie Day, “Landslide” Fleetwood Mac, “With or Without You” by U2 and “There is Love” as she walked the aisle, her parents wedding song also! Cocktail and dinner sets were in the Grand ballroom and concluded with a night of dancing to thumping Pitbull and FloRida by Dj…me!

Never underestimate the power of a first impression…Louise saw me perform in Florida and knew one day when she got married I would be the one to perform for her wedding. Luckily for me she married Paul, one of the nicest human beings on the planet. I was wisked off to Manhattan Beach, CA for a dream wedding in Los Angeles. I performed at mixer the Friday night before and cocktail/reception the day of the wedding. Their first dance was “The One I Love” by David Gray performed on a beautiful cliff in Palos Verdes. The couple had college friends from all over the country and more of the nicest people I have ever met. This was not only a dream come true for them, but for me also. I am forever grateful and will never forget this event!

Beautiful wedding last night in Naples, Fl at “The Inn on Fifth”. Stephanie from “Along Came Stephanie” and her crew put on one of the most elegant weddings ever. I sang “You are the Best Thing” by Ray Lamontaine for the first dance and a special arranged version of “Old Time Rock and Roll” for the bride and her father. The night went into the late hours with me as Emcee and DJ through out the event. The night ended with a sparkler send off for the couple and me eating a killer filet as the road crew packed up, thank you again to our beautiful bride, Jackie!
