Bethany and Dustin came to us from a referral from the incomparable Katie Whitcomb Photographers, so we knew off the bat they would be a terrific couple to work with. They were also holding their reception at the lovely Blue Heron country club at Blackthorn Golf Course in South Bend, IN which is a venue where we entertain frequently. At Katie’s wise suggestion, Bethany chose to work DJ Sticky Boots as her South Bend area wedding entertainer and picked our Platinum wedding package to complete the venue.
Guests arrived and enjoyed cocktails to a contemporary hit playlist on the warm summer evening under the tent on the outside patio before drifting indoors for the grand entrance, dinner and toasting, all under the expert direction of their St. Joe county wedding DJ and emcee.
Other musical selections for the evening included a crooner playlist of Rat-Pack favorites for dinner time, and then a fun upbeat mix of new hits and party classics for dancing. A highlight on the dance floor later in the evening came when all of the Bride’s sisters and cousins came together to sing a stirring rendition of the Dixie Chicks classic “Cowboy Take Me a Away” which was met with a standing ovation for their friends and family. Later in the evening, nearly the entire group of guests, many of whom were from Texas, came together to do an intense circle-style line dance to “Cotton Eyed Joe” which was one of the most impressive displays of line dancing their Michiana wedding deejay had ever seen!
