October Wedding McMenamins Kennedy School
Frances and Arthur’s wedding and reception took place at McMenamins’s Kennedy School in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, October 5, 2019.
The first weekend of October brought sunshine for their exchange of vows in the courtyard. Normally I start the ceremony prelude music 30 minutes before the wedding. However, this couple chose to have a full cocktail hour before the wedding and requested all music from “The Postal Service” during this time.
Portland Wedding DJ Ceremony Highlights:
- Wedding Party Entrance: Death Cab for Cutie – I Will Follow You Into The Dark
- Bride Entrance: Bright Eyes – First Day of My Life
- Bride/Groom Exit: Rawnald Gregory Erickson The Second – Strfkr
The reception followed immediately in the Gymnasium. It was a nice evening and a few guests stayed in the courtyard, but most went inside. I had background music playing in both locations until dinner.
Portland Wedding DJ Reception Highlights:
- Grand Entrance: Hall and Oates – You Make My Dreams
- Cake Cutting: Queen – You’re My Best Friend
- First Dance: The Flaming Lips – Do You Realize?
- Bride and Father Dance: Stevie Wonder – You Are the Sunshine of My Life
- Last Dance: K-Ci & JoJo – All My Life
It was a small group, but they filled the dance floor for much of the night. We got off to a great start with “At Last,” “Twist & Shout,” “You Can’t Hurry Love” and the bride and groom’s request for Barry White’s “You’re the First, the Last, My Everything.” Missy Elliot’s “Work It” was also well-received, along with “Pony, “Uptown Funk,”Get Lucky” and more.
Best wishes Frances and Arthur and thank you for choosing PRO DJs.
