The early spring wedding season continued at Marc & Annie’s Park Hyatt Sunday evening wedding. The beautiful ceremony and lovely reception were both on site and the coordination at the Park Hyatt was flawless.
The wedding party assembled to Andy McKee “Rylynn” a fantastic acoustic guitar tune. Annie made her way down the aisle to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros “Om Nashi Me,” not your typical choice, but a great one nonetheless. The ceremony lasted about 30 minutes, and as with most Jewish weddings, the crowd erupted into “Simon Tov” as soon as Marc stomped on the glass, making the union official.
Cocktail hour was held out in the corridor while the staff flipped the room for dinner and dancing and we rearranged speaker placement. Marc & Annie provided an extensive suggested playlist from which I created an ipod playlist. Songs included John Mayer “I Don’t Trust Myself (with Loving You),” Donora “I Think I Like You,” and RJD2 “Ghostwriter.”
Dinner was served and in between the first and second courses, Marc & Annie had their first dance. They chose Alicia Keys “If I ain’t Got You (Piano Version)” and following that, I invited the other guests to the floor for a quick dance set to some Motown classics. The floor filled immediately and it was a little tough to get the guests to sit down and finish their meal!
After dinner and several toasts from parents, the three “pretty good men,” the maid of honor, and a thank you from Marc & Annie themselves, the guests were itching to get back on the floor, which they did with great energy. Dancefloor hits included Ace of Base “The Sign,” Backstreet Boys “Larger than Life” (to which Marc and his friends knew all the choreography), Beyonce “Single Ladies,” Outkast “Hey Ya,” and Jackson 5 “ABC.” Everyone wanted more, but I had to end it (an hour later than planned!) with Marc & Annie’s choice, Usher “Nice & Slow.”
I’ve been to dozens of weddings — this one stacked up with the best of them! Congrats Marc & Annie!
