Old Red Courthouse Dallas Wedding Reception 6/16/12

I’m writing this post more than 6 months after Joseph & Jessica’s wedding, but I can still remember the intros like it was yesterday. They chose 2 really great upbeat songs for the intros (Fire by Joe Budden & Let Me Clear My Throat by DJ Kool). As you can see from the pictures below, the groomsmen really got into it by dancing into the reception. Once I hit play on ‘Let Me Clear My Throat’ and formally introduced Joseph & Jessica, the entire place erupted in thunderous applause.

I tell my clients that fun intros like this can really help set the mood for the night, and I really think the intros really did help get the party atmosphere going early in the evening. The energy in the room from the time the intros were done until the last song was absolutely great. Their friends & family really knew how to party and help Joseph & Jessica celebrate their wedding.

Joseph & Jessica wanted to something unique at the end of the reception–a private last dance. I had heard about private last dances, but hadn’t had a client want to do one before. After we had the last dance for all the guests, I gave them the info for the sendoff. Within a couple minutes, the room was empty–the only people who were left was Joseph & Jessica, along with their photographer (Jessica Schaack) and me. Joseph had selected a special song as a surprise for their private last dance. This dance had a totally different feel from their first dance. It’s hard to describe but it was so intimate and special…it really was a great moment. (The last picture below was from the private last dance.)

Speaking of pictures, this was another wedding in 2012 where I got to work with one of my favorite Dallas wedding photographers–Jessica Schaack of Rae Portraits. As usual, she did an amazing job, as seen in the pictures below.
