I've been saying for a very long time that one of these days I might just go for it and deliver the whole reception party as a black and white collection. I just LOVE the look of it!
What do you think?! Yay or Nay!?! Leave your thoughts below :)
This is one of the last weddings I shot at the amazing Stoweflake Resort in Stowe VT. If you've never been to Stowe, you definitely have to visit. It is such a cute little place! There is a lot to do there at all times and the food is amazing! Vermont has some amazing food overall but this area is a tourist hub so you find it in abundance.
Anyway, back to our black&white reception. This crowd was FUN!FUN!FUN! and it was a blast celebrating love with them! I knew they will be ever since I met Beth and Dan for the engagement session a year back. They were so much fun to hang with and we ended up connecting over our love for tacos and awesome beer.
If the party is important to you, no matter what you do, my advice is to not skip on picking a great DJ. We all have that awesome friend with a huge music playlist but your wedding day is not the time to try that. I have seen weddings go terribly wrong that way. Trust me on this! Hire a great DJ and you won’t regret it!
Once you do pick the best guy (or girl) for the job, trust them. Let them do their job. Sometimes, when you have too many “special requests” and the DJ builds a playlist around them, the night tends to be a bit choppy. This is what these guys do every weekend. Give them a general guideline and trust them.
In this case, the last song of the night was a “special request” : Wagon Wheel. It’s a tradition to Dan’s college frisbee team. When this song started everyone put their arms around one another and sang along. I got goose bumps just remembering that moment. Beth cried happy tears. The whole room was just a big mushy bowl of love.
Cheers to you all!
