Rick and Emily held their ceremony on the western lawn area on an idyllic early summer afternoon amidst a leafy garden. But this bucolic scene didn’t stop them from walking down the aisle to Europe’s “Final Countdown.” I think that last sentence may warrant an exclamation point. Needless to say, Rick and Emily have a wonderful sense of humor and they and their guests couldn’t have been more fun to play for.
The dance floor got started with a megamix of soul classics including Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, and Shorty Long, but really got popping once Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite” came on. Midway through the night the mother of the groom had planned a special musical toast to the newlyweds. Emily and Rick met while working at Fenway Park, where Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” is played in the seventh inning stretch. When that tune came on, the entire room of guests started waiving Red Sox pennants in the air. It’s these little personal touches that make weddings really memorable for the guests and the DJ alike.
It would be tough to pick a song of the night, but the mini booty bass set of “Tootsie Roll,” “Da Dip,” and “Baby Got Back” was a personal favorite for sure. Thanks Emily and Rick for having the D-Mac crew on board for the event; I can only hope everyone had as much fun as we did!
P.S. to everyone planning a wedding… Emily and Rick had a late-night espresso bar on the eastern patio. Mega bonus points for having delicious coffee to keep the DJ going through the night! Highly recommended to all.
A big thanks to Leo Druker Photography for the awesome flicks!
