July Wedding At Charbonneau Country Club Wilsonville
Susan and Ben’s wedding and reception at Charbonneau Country Club in Wilsonville, Oregon was held on Saturday, July 24, 2021.
It was a beautiful summer day. A little warm, but the wind was blowing and occasionally offered subtle spray from the nearby lake to maybe cool off some. I made sure to place a microphone cover on the lapel I provided for the officiant. The cover looks like a small critter, but it completely blocked any noise from the wind, so it was welcome.

The newlyweds requested a generations dance where I asked everyone to raise their hand if they were married and to keep them raised if they had been married one year, 2, 5, 7, 10, etc. The longest married couple was Norma and Leon (over 50 years). Next I invited all married couples to the dance floor for the opener selected by the bride… “This Will Be (Everlasting Love) by Natalie Cole.
I received requests for hit songs from all eras, including The Contours ‘Do You Love Me’ and Bruno Mars w/Mark Ronson ‘Uptown Funk’ plus plenty of hits from the past 15 years, such as ‘Dynamite’ and ‘Cupid Shuffle’ along with requests from the bride and groom for ‘Footloose,’ ‘Wobble’ and a few Country songs.
Congratulations Susan and Ben and thank you for choosing PRO DJs.
