Laura + Steve – The Riverview Simsbury CT – Quirky Jewish Wedding

  |   Jewish Weddings, Real Wedding Stories

If there is one word to sum up Laura + Steve’s wedding at The Riverview in Simsbury CT it has to “QUIRKY”.  They were just the sweetest couple and anyone who met them could just see how in love  these two were.  But they marched to their own beat and it came through in everything they did at their wedding.

They took photos with their golden retriever, there were large pink 3′ diameter balloons, Laura wore a short white and pink dress and they were super involved in their music choices.  Their first dance music list that they submitted to me as MUST PLAY was about 9 hours worth of music.  We had to work together to hone that down to the important songs so that we got to play the right mix of music for they and their guests.

We started their reception with quick introductions, first dance and about 200 people came to their feet for the hora before salad was even served.  This was going to be a fun Sunday afternoon wedding.  The sun was shining even with the rain outside but that did not stop this crowd.  They came out in numbers on the dance floor to dance to just about anything.

While Laura + Steve were outside taking some special photos with their photographer, Seth Kaye – we had everyone up and dancing for about 20 minutes while we waited for them to return and cut the cake (cupcakes) and dance with their parents.

Laura’s mom had sensitive ears and we worked with her to ensure there were no issues with the music volume.  What a fun crowd this quirky couple and their guests ended up to be!
