Tonight I was lucky enough to get a beautiful first taste of fall while I helped some newlyweds celebrate their marriage. The Eagan Community Center is a beautiful venue surrounded by nature, and I couldn't help but snap a few pictures as some fall colors start to arrive.
I could tell right from the start what a close-knit group of people I'd be working with throughout the evening, and the speeches were very reflective of that. The wedding party and their guests all felt like one big family, and I knew I'd be packing the dance floor with the entire guest-list.
As we finished up the first dances, we started of group dancing with the "Anniversary Dance" (Take a trip to Google if you need some background, I know I did when I started DJ'ing). I knew going into the dance that the Bride's grandparents were going to be the longest standing, as her mother told me prior to the dance that they were soon to be celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary. They weren't the only experts though, most of the married couples on the floor had at least 30 years under their belt! For their anniversary and to show the crowd that they've still got it, they did a little dance to "Begin the Beguine" by Artie Shaw. I was a little bit blown away by their genuine happiness and fun spirit as they danced to this classic tune.
