Blaze’s Bar Mitzvah Neveh Shalom Portland

 
It was a Chanukah-themed Bar Mitzvah for Blaze’s celebration on Saturday, December 28, 2019 at Congregation Neveh Shalom Portland, Oregon.
 
The candles on the Menorah ice sculpture lit up the room as guests packed the dance floor for Israeli dance favorites and Top 40 hits.
 
Mazel Tov Blaze!

Vancouver WA Heathman Lodge Wedding

 
Amanda and Nick’s Heathman Lodge wedding took place on Saturday, October 19, 2019 in Vancouver, Washington. Just before, I was admiring the fall foliage this time of year and thinking what a great backdrop for an outdoor wedding, but the weather has been a little unsettled so good thing the ceremony and reception were both held inside the Lewis & Clark Ballroom.

Heathman Lodge Wedding Ceremony Highlights:

  • Bridal Party & Bride Entrance: Forrest Gump Theme (Alan Silvestri)
  • Bride/Groom Exit: Heavy D & The Boyz – Now That We Found Love

The reception followed immediately in the same room and guests enjoyed conversation with background music that featured a variety of styles, including country hits as requested by the bride.
 
Heathman Lodge Wedding Reception Highlights:

  • Grand Entrance: Sugarland – Stuck Like Glue
  • Cake Cutting: James Taylor – How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)
  • First Dance: Lee Brice – I Don’t Dance
  • Groom and Mother Dance: Garth Brooks – It’s Your Song
  • Last Dance: Rascal Flatts – Back To Life

The dance floor was a tiny square in the middle of the room that filled for the opening slow dance and spilled over for much of the afternoon for the upbeat songs that followed.

The party really lit up for fun participation dance songs, such as the “Cupid Shuffle,” “Cha Cha Slide,” and the recent country/hip-hop smash “The Git Up” by Blanco Brown. The bride missed that one the first time and requested I play it again only a few songs later. It went over just a strong the second time 🙂

Near the end, Amanda and one her guests rocked a swing dance to Luke Bryan’s “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)” before the entire room joined the newlyweds for the last two songs.

Magical Bat Mitzvah Party On Sauvie Island

 
DJ Rich Ellis had the opportunity to perform at Ava’s Bat Mitzvah Party on Sauvie Island on Saturday, July 20, 2019 at Kruger’s Farm. He was also the DJ at sister Ella’s bat mitzvah party in 2015 and Steve Marker was the DJ for older brother Benny’s bar mitzvah in 2013. There will be one more for this family coming up in five years 🙂
 
Taking place outdoors under the giant oak tree behind Kruger’s Market, this open air celebration under string vintage lights, was described by one guest upon arrival as magical.

At most bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah parties, I normally lead the kids in some games before or after dinner. However, for this event, there was so much to do, including games like Cornhole, Croquet and a giant Jenga, plus hay rides.

Near the end of dinner, quite a few guests were dancing to the background music (always a good sign) and not long after ‘The Hora’ got everyone else out of their chairs immediately to begin a great night of dancing on the farm.

The floor was packed for every song from start to finish and the 160 guests in attendance brought the energy for big hit songs, “Stayin’ Alive” “Happy,” “Uptown Funk,” “Cant’ Stop the Feeling” and more.

Most guests were dancing on the main floor, but some were dancing where they were, like around the camp fire for s’mores

As twilight set in, the energy ramped up even more.

Wonser Woods Estate Estacada Wedding

 
Our moderate Northwest summer continues and provided a very comfortable setting for Rachel and Chris’ outdoor Wonser Woods Estate Estacada wedding on Thursday, July 18, 2019.
 
Wonser Woods Estate Estacada Wedding (7-18-19)
 
Wonser Woods Estate Estacada Wedding Ceremony Highlights:

  • Wedding Party Entrance: Clint Black and Lisa Hartman – When I Said I Do
  • Bride Entrance: Jason Aldean – You Make It Easy
  • Bride/Groom Exit: Chris Stapleton – Millionaire

There is a lot of room to move around at this venue and the 150+ guests took advantage of nearly all of it. Dinner and dancing were held under a large tent. Background music was a variety of favorites, including some Country selections as requested by the bride.

Wonser Woods Estate Estacada Wedding Reception Highlights:

  • First Dance: Brett Young – In Case You Didn’t Know
  • Bouquet Toss: Shania Twain – Man! I Feel Like A Woman

When the dance floor opened, we had only a few couples and their kids interested in cutting a rug, but eventually everyone else got going and we had a good hour plus long run of dancing fun to hit songs such as “Happy” and “Uptown Funk.” The couple’s 7-year-old daughter also requested the currently red hot “Old Town Road” twice 🙂
