Congratulations to Dustin and Shawnna Kennedy on their nuptials! Their Wedding Ceremony and Reception was at The Villa at La Tranquila Ranch. The Ceremony was very elegant. It was officiated by Pastor Randy Greene and his wife sang a beautiful acapella version of “The Lords Prayer.”
After the Ceremony, family and guest made their way through the receiving line to congratulate Dustin and Shawnna, then made their way into the Bar Lounge area for Cocktails where they enjoyed complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine. Meanwhile, Dustin, Shawnna and their immediate family and Bridal Party were taking pictures.
Once pictures were complete, the reception was ready to be started. After the introduction of the Parents and Grandparents, we changed the mood to the up-beat song “White Wedding” by Billy Idol as I introduced the Bridal Party. We then welcomed Mr. and Mrs. Dustin and Shawnna Kennedy; they walked in as the song “So Happy Together” by The Turtles played and all the family and guest came to their feet and applaused.
After Dinner was blessed, Dustin and Shawnna were served at their table while their family and guest lined up at the buffet station to be served. The meal was delicious! After dinner, Dustin and Shawnna took some time to visit each table with their photographer to spend a bit of personal time and take pictures with their family and guest.
We then moved on to some of the formalities such as the champagne toast. The Best Man Jerry and Maid of Honor Kendra said a few words and gave their toast. After which Dustin and Shawnna welcomed and thanked their family and guest, followed by the cutting of the cake. While Shawnna changed dresses, I opened the dance floor with some Big Band, Oldies 50’s and 60’s music. Then the couple danced their first dance as husband and wife to Elvis Presley’s “I Can’t Help Falling In Love.” It was breathe taking! It was followed by Shawnna’s dance with her father Kenneth to Bread’s song “If.” Then Dustin and his mother Trish danced to the song by Ben E. King “Stand By Me.”
All the married couples were then invited to the dance floor for the Anniversary Dance. When we finally ended with the couple that was married for the longest years, they shared some great marriage advice with Dustin and Shawnna, and in appreciation for their longevity in marriage Dustin and Shawnna presented them with their bouquet.
The dance party was started with a mix of 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s dance music. The music selections were a mixture of 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and Modern Dance/Top 40. We had a great crowd that stayed till the end to drink, dance, and have a great time. It was a fantastic party!
Thank you Dustin and Shawnna for allowing me to be a part of your Wedding Celebration…it was an honor! I wish you both many, many, many years of happiness and children. I also want to thank Sandra, Debra and the staff at The Villa at La Tranquila Ranch. I look forward to working with you all again in the near future.
