Mary and Dave celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary with family and friends at Madeleine Parish Hall in Portland, Oregon on Sunday, August 19, 2018.
Background music was a mix of their favorites from the past such as “(Theme From A) Summer Place” from Percy Faith, “The Wonder of You” by Elvis Presley and selections from the Beatles.
Shortly after their guests arrived and before the buffet opened, Mary and Dave renewed their vows. A little later, as everyone was finishing their meal, a slide show was presented. As you can imagine, this featured many photos from 50 years of marriage. As this was happening, I played some of their favorite songs in the background.
50th Wedding Anniversary Slideshow Music Selections:
- Barbara Streisand – People Who Need People
- Ella Fitzgerald – Someone To Watch Over Me
- Nat King Cole – When I Fall In Love
- Elvis Presley – Can’t Help Falling In Love
- Bette Midler – Wind Beneath My Wings
- Billy Joel – Lullabye
- Elton John – Circle of Life
Following the slideshow, Mary and Dave danced their first dance to “Some Enchanted Evening” by Perry Como, inviting their guests to join them about half way through the song. Many then stuck around for “Unchained Melody” by the Righteous Brothers and then some more uptempo music from the Beatles and swing dances, “In The Mood” and “Jailhouse Rock.” The “Hokey Pokey” was also requested.
Congratulations Mary and Dave and thank you for choosing PRO DJs.
