Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel Portland Wedding

It was a comfortable 75 degrees for Brenda and Brian’s Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel Portland wedding ceremony in the courtyard, but much hotter on the dance floor for the reception later on in the Marina Ballroom on Saturday, July 27, 2019.

The reception continued with dinner scheduled for 7pm downstairs in the Marina Ballroom. I had a short window to move my sound system and set-up again just in time for the first guests to arrive. Shortly after everyone was seated, I introduced the parents, officiant, wedding party and bride and groom for the Grand Entrance. This was followed by the toast and dinner. Background music was similar to what was played during cocktails, but a little softer tempo.

When the dance floor opened to all shortly after 9pm, it was evident guests were hungry to get going and have a good time shaking it up. They appreciated a variety of music, but especially “Twist & Shout” and “The Twist,” Cha Cha dancing, disco classics and recent hit songs.
