If i were to describe this wedding or try to sum it up in one word it would be "LOVE". I was seriously amazed at the love these two shared for each other. I got to witness my first (FIRST LOOK) and OMG I teared up not as bad as Zac and Traci did but I got emotional. This set the whole mood for the night. It was a truly love filled wedding.
The Wedding Ceremony
When the crowd started to arrive you could tell everyone was so laid back. No Stress at all. Everyone that you were around were so friendly and kind. Everyone was starting to make there way in and being seated. It was so very cold for the Month of May but everyone was in such good spirits. The ceremony kicked off with Traci's cousin playing the guitar for the parents and bridal party entrance. He done such a great job. I played the bride entrance song and the beautiful Traci stepped out and entered the beautiful pavilion at Shelby Hills Farms. The pavillion overlooked a phenomenal farm and a huge lake. Its a gorgeous venue if you have never been there. Now i will say this for there ceremony, you could tell these two had God at the center of their relationship. You could feel the passion in the words of the pastor. A prayer a sand ceremony and a ring exchange (with tears included ) and we were ready for those special words. Zac you may now kiss your bride. These two were now joined as one.
The reception was set. We had the basic system with uplighting set and ready to go. The hardest part of the night for me is the opening speech. I know anyone that has read these blogs knows that I struggle with this. I don't know how the crowd will accept me and it makes me anxious. This one was no different. I struggled with wording at first but fell right into place when everyone started to laugh and open up. We had the night set and ready for the bridal party. Once they started to arrive I could tell we were in for a real good night. They were plotting how they were going to enter for the grand entrance so they were already trying to make it exciting. The Bridal party done such a great job with the entrance. There were two best men and the Matron of honor reeled both of them through the door. AMAZING. Dinner went phenomenal. Traci made us an awesome table list and wow it worked so good. We got everyone through the line really really fast. Great Job Team Mulberry Orchard for the awesome service and the amazing food. (I actually had to give them such a big shout out especially on the Mac and Cheese) I am still trying to get their secret recipe on that. After dinner we did the Toast cake cutting and all the special Dances. It was for sure time to start the fun stuff you could tell that the crowd was coming apart at the seams ready to dance and celebrate for sure. So that's what we did. We had the wedding selfie (WITH 91 PEOPLE) then straight into the party. We had so much fun and kept it going up until the circle of love. I Love DJing weddings and have such a great time doing so. I get to meet awesome people who for some become friends or even DJS themselves. We meet awesome vendors like the Photographer Shannon Meredith with PHOTOGRAPHY BY SHANNON. We get to witness love first hand. This was one wedding where you could feel the love. Ill leave you with this. 1 Corinthians 13 "If I speak in tongues of men or of angels but do not love I am only a resounding gong or clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. I think that is an apporpriot verse for this young beautiful couple. Thank you Traci and Zac for trusting us with your special day. We hope it was everything you wanted and more.
