When you spend so much time in the city, you get so used to the super tall skyscrapers and the hustle and bustle of the city–so when we get the rare opportunity to see a change of pace without even leaving? We absolutely jump on it! That was especially the case this past weekend when we celebrated with Ashley and Giuseppe as they tied the knot at The Foundry in Queens!
Though we did not play at the beautiful off-site ceremony, we did get to be a part of everyone’s favorite 2/3’s of any wedding–the cocktails and reception! So, (obviously) upon arrival, the party was expecting some cocktails! With our jazz trio, Pablo, Michael, and Nathaniel, the party enjoyed some gentle jazzy tunes, and plenty of delicious drinks! Everyone engaged in small talk, the beautiful views just beyond the patio, and discussed the gorgeous ceremony! As the cocktail hour ended, the party was ready for something more serious… it was time for some food, and dancing!
The party settled in for the reception in the gorgeous courtyard, and the night was kicked off! After everyone took their seats, it was time for the main entrance of the night: Ashley and Giuseppe making their debut as husband and wife! Together, they entered to “Signed, Sealed, Delievered”, played expertly by our band! With the crowd properly warmed up, it was time to get down to business. In their first dance as husband and wife, Ashley and Giuseppe spun around the dance floor to “You and Me Together”, in an expert rendition by GTO! From there, it was time for the Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances! Ashley and her Father danced to “Good Man” and Giuseppe and his Mother danced to “Mother” both sung by GTO! There certainly was not a dry eye in house, so with this, it was time to dance the night away!
With blood sugars higher and pumping strong, the entire party was ready to cut a rug! They danced the night away to beloved hits such as “Message In A Bottle”, “Light Switch”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”, “Cold Heart” and more! Another fun dance we caught was a beautiful dedication to Ashley’s best friend! It was an extra sweet moment that was the perfect chance for the party to grab a quick drink and refresh, as Katrina serenaded the party to “Right Back Where We Started From”.
With the burn of dancing still fresh, the party was going strong–that was, until it wasn’t, and it was time to go! Everyone’s dancing shoes had been sufficiently broken in, and the party found themselves heading home. After a night of so much fun, such a perfect day would surely not be soon forgotten–by us, any of the attendees, or the beautiful couple themselves! Congratulations!
