Wedding Entertainment with DJ Irving G: Henderson Park Inn, Destin FL | Harris Wedding
With the sugar white sand on the beach, the perfectly clear sky and the turquoise water color on full display, it was another awesome spring day on the Emerald Coast of Florida. Our bride and groom, Justin and Hayley Harris, had assembled an all-star supporting cast of vendors to work with us at Henderson Park Inn in Destin, FL. We had Michael K Photography, Florals by the Sea, Cake Destination and Beach Walk Café. There was no doubt that we were primed for an amazing wedding.
As the guests filed down to the beach, you could just feel the excitement. When Justin saw Hayley walk down that aisle, his face lit up with a huge smile. It was such a beautiful ceremony.
With the ceremony over, the guests transitioned to the lawn for cocktail hour. They enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while listening to the the smooth Caribbean sounds of our steel drummer extraordinaire, Rudy Applewhite. Drinks in hand and the great company of friends, many of whom had not seen one another for a long time, made for the perfect combo as we got ready for a fun-filled reception.
Mr. and Mrs. Justin Harris walked into the reception and the crowd went wild. The first dance was a very appropriate choice with it being a beach wedding. They danced to “Kokomo” by the Beach Boys. The happy couple was just lost in the moment.
The music for the dinner hour was a mixture of laid back reggae, some retro throwbacks and a few current selections mixed in. Guests were singing and clapping along to many of the songs. As we got ready to transition into dancing, we picked up the tempo a bit.
Once we segued into open dancing, it became very apparent that the crowd loved that old time rock and roll. Everything from The Beatles to Jerry Lee Lewis, guests couldn’t get enough. From the very first song, guests were out on the floor!
When the crowd really got down, the white Wayfarer shades came out and the dance floor stayed packed almost the entire night.
I even got on the dance floor and led a few dances with Justin, Hayley and their guests.
How did they end this perfect night? With a glow stick tunnel of course. All of their family and friends cheered them on as Justin and Hayley made their way through it. It was a great send-off and completed an awesome reception.
