Sunday’s newlyweds Katie and Jon were able to pivot around bad weather and the only sign of rain was from the tears of joy in the audience. Katie’s uncle, Pastor Doug, gave a touching sermon and we provided the ceremony mics and music to complete the wedding nuptials. The ceremony garden was a quaint space that provided a private service with surrounding fence and simple, elegant landscaping. It was also nice that power was close by for the wedding dj! Katie and Jon kept it elegant with stringed versions of Christina Perri’s “100o Years”and Canon In D for processionals; they used Stringspace Quartet’s version of “All You Need is Love” by the Beatles for their recessional.
Following the ceremony, guests were greeted with o’er dourves and drinks as they exited the ceremony and entered the wide open cocktail space. The bar was built in to another building adjacent to the barn and functioned well. I did notice the larger than normal menu list of alcohol and other drinks available by Chef By Request caterers. The ceremony speaker only had to be turned to provide cocktail hour music for the guests.
During cocktail hour, Hoosier Barn’s very own director, Vicki, went over the itinerary for the evening, as one should do with the wedding dj, and was most helpful throughout the night. Jon and Katie as well as the entire wedding party walked into “Can’t stop the feeling” by Justin Timberlake. Their first dance was a new song from Ed Sheeran, “How Would You Feel.”
Touching toasts and a buffet followed the festivities and dancing ended at 11pm. Katie gave her bouquet to the longest married couple after the anniversary dance and despite it being a Sunday wedding, the dancefloor was full for this wedding of 80 guests. And the entertainment was spot on!
