Prelude music included steel drums, and right before the wedding party Jack Johnson's "Better Together"
The bridesmaids entrance: Arioso
Melissa's Processional: Over the Rainbow by IZ
The Recessional: I'm yours by Jason Mraz
Cocktail hour immediately followed this wedding party and family went for pictures.
Cocktail Hour Music: Caribbean music - the kind of music to run your toes in the sand. Key West Cigar Club and Smoke Shop was hired and rolled cigars from cocktail hour through the end of dinner. The introductions followed as we introduced both sets of parents, the entire wedding party, and our guests of honor.
Parents: Praise You by Fat Boy Slim
Wedding Party: Motown Philly by Boyz II Men
Newlyweds: Streetfighting Man by Rage Against the Machine
Anthony and Melissa went right into their first dance, Crazy Love by Van Morrison
The dinner was Buffet style with a Caribbean/Latin flair. There was Paella, roasted pork, grilled fish, grilled chicken, steamed veggies and black beans. As all outdoors and Southernmost put forth a beautiful display.
Musical highlights of the evening included a special dedication to Anthony's stepdad, it was his birthday, and they had a specialty cake made just for him. Just before the newlyweds cake cutting, the beginning "In da Club" by 50 Cent where it says "It's your Birthday" was looped, I followed with "Birthday" by the Beatles and he blew out his candles. It was then time for the newlyweds to cut the cake. This was destined to be absolutely smashing! The song they selected was "Hit me with your best shot" by Pat Benetar, I guess you can figure out what happened next!
Throughout the night everybody dance to a lot of the old school type music sprinkled with some of today's top songs. All in all the wedding was an absolute success thanks to Melissa and her staff at Southernmost. Thank you for all your help!
Closing Song: Kings of Leon - Use Somebody
