Andrea & Shea (War Memorial Plaza - Nashville, TN)

This one turned out to be quite the social event. Got the chance to work with my new friends from Ace Photography again. Wow, do these guys do fantastic work! Lighting was provided by Nashville Event Lighting (they beat me out on this one) and they did a superb job. The start was a bit bumpy. Power had to be drawn a fairly long distance and because of rain we had to shift our rig over to be under the plaza's canopy. Fortunately, the rain held off and everything stayed nice and dry. Seeing how the plaza is so spread out, we dropped a wireless speaker on the opposite end. It worked like a charm and you could hear clearly, all over the plaza.

Both Andrea and Shea are precious and we enjoyed a nice first hour of just light dinner music, letting everyone visit. When the party got started, it really got started and the scenery was simply stunning: I have to say it, these guys pulled off the absolute best garter toss I've seen to date. Andrea was seated and Shea really did a production for his removal. Problem was, when he went in there was no garter to be found. Andrea had Shea then turn around and sit down while she searched for it on his leg. Low and behold, there it was, and it was a University of TN, orange and white garter and the moment it came into view, Shea asked me to fire off Rocky Top. The crowd came un-glued.

The rest of the night was excellent and I was thrilled to play a part.

(Note to self: Don't setup under the ledges. Pigeons have impeccable aim)
