Rebecca and Brady's wedding (10-17-2009)

Some receptions are a celebration and then there are those that are a total, no-holds-barred, absolute throw-down! This one was the latter. The reception was held in the Patio Room at the Brentwood Country Club. First off, props to Jim Talbot and crew for being such fine hosts. They were professional, friendly and ultra-fast on cleanup when a guest had broken their glass on the dance floor. I'd highly recommend this facility to anyone. The guests started arriving around 5:15pm. I put on some light dinner music, welcomed the guests, then started circulating to get the first round of pictures. I dearly love the expressions when that first group of pics hit the slideshow. After a pretty extensive photo session, Rebecca and Brady (and their team of photographers) made their Grand Entrance. The first dance was fun with Bill Wither's "Lovely Day", followed by the traditonal Bride-Father and Groom-Mother dances. After cake-cutting, we cranked it up a bit and the dancers certainly weren't far behind. These guys danced to everything I could throw at them, and then some. We finally shut things down around 10pm.

The only bad part of the evening was the end. It was one of those parties you just don't want to see end. Here's wishing for years and years of happiness and joy to the lucky couple. You guys deserve it.
