Apocalyptic Mt Hood Wedding A Real Blast
The final PRO DJs Portland wedding of 2012 took place on what was suppose to be the last day of civilization. We have been hearing about it for years, the Mayan calendar predicted the world would end on December 21, 2012. For Deanna and Cory, this seemed like the perfect day to tie the knot and to take it one step further, why not get married halfway up the Oregon mountain most likely to erupt 🙂
For this Mt Hood wedding, they chose to rent out four cabins at the Cooper Spur Mountain Resort and the ceremony took place outside just after twilight with a light snow falling. With about 40 guests in attendance, friends and family formed a circle around the bride and groom and an Indian medicine woman who performed the ceremony, as the music of the Native Flute Ensemble ‘Deer Spirits Welcome the Dawn’ played in the background.
After they were official, Cory had requested Billy Idol’s ‘White Wedding’ followed by ‘It’s the End of the World As We Know It’ from R.E.M. and the Dave Matthews Band’s ‘End of the World’ and the celebration was officially under way.
Next, everyone took a short walk to the main lodge for a champagne toast before returning to the cabins for the reception. Each cabin hosted a different part of the reception, with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in one cabin, dinner in another, dessert in a third cabin and finally karaoke and dancing with me in the main cabin. This worked out perfectly and everyone had a great time going door-to-door for each event.
The karaoke portion of the evening got off to a rockin’ start with Deanna and several friends singing Pat Benatar’s ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot’ followed by Cory with Matchbox 20’s ‘3 AM’. After that, the list of singers was long and diverse, they covered everthing from C.C.R. to Taylor Swift and about 15 women singing and dancing to Flo Rida’s ‘Low’ really brought the house down in Cabin #4.
After several hours of rockin’ the mic, the outdoor hot tubs beckoned and on a beautiful night, this Mt Hood wedding came to a perfect end. Best wishes Deanna and Cory. Your guests won’t soon forget this one.
