Welcome to Jam-Rock !
Nicole and Astley shared a love for each other, shared a love for family, and shared a Jamaican heritage allowing me to get my "Yankee-Boy gone wicked pon tha' jam" swagger on ! Their friends and family came from far and farther to celebrate this couples love on Valentines day 2009. Friends from Iraq, Jamaica, New York, New Jersey, and Panama tried their best to out-party the few-but-funky Virginians in the room.
Our services began with providing sound and music for the ceremony. Nicole and Astley decided upon a warm splash of romantic jazz to set the mood for their nuptials. Astley walked in the room as we played Kem's "I Can't stop Loving You." The wedding party entered the room to an extended version of Musiq Soulchild's performance of "Love". After a short moment of silence in recognition of Astley's and Nicole's mothers whose presence was felt as if they were smiling ear-to-ear from heaven, Nicole and here Papa graced into the room as Patti (LaBelle) bellowed out "I Love you, I Love you." from her classic tear-jerker "Want and need you baby". Never mind the song.......... Nicole brought tears to every one's eyes.
The officiant, the bride, and the groom were all heard as we mic'ed the ceremony ensuring that the 80+ guests would hear the vows. The couple recessed to Kirk Frankiln's "Declaration" declaring the couple one.
The reception showcased the couples Island heritage as I played Smooth-yet-Jazzy Caribbean tunes and upbeat Jazzy R&B tunes while the guests snacked on gourmet Beef Patties and other Island favorites. The couple's extended first dance began with Luther Vandross' captivating voice and ended with all of the married guests encircling the couple with their love and a "Happy Valentine's Day" kiss ! Smooches Yall !!!
The party was one and the guests ate, danced, and sang-along with the mix of Caribbean, Old-School, R&B, Classic Soul, and a brief splash of Hip-Hop tunes. The event was due to end at 9:00 PM.........Right............We came to party and celebrate what the Almighty has brought together. Bless Up & Respect to the couple.
