The date was March 18, 2022 when this lovely couple came together with all of their guests in celebration of their wedding event!

Mary Grace and Tom, now Mr. and Mrs. Hackett chose the beautiful wedding venue The Larkfield located in East Port, NY.  Inspired by the Tuscan villas of Italy, the Larkfield was the perfect setting for romance with the elegance of Old World style, demonstrated in timber and stone façades, soaring hearths, manicured gardens and interior balconies.

The Around Town Band from Around Town Entertainment was the New York City band the couple had selected for the wedding celebration. The band first provided a jazz trio for their cocktail hour. The trio played a lively mix of jazz and contemporary selections to entertain their guests as the drinks flowed and the perfect ambiance was set.  The trio was a pianist, a bassist and a guitarist. The combination of the three was just the right blend to not overwhelm the space but still the right touch to create a spirited vibe in the space.  The guests loved the music and the night was off to a great start.

From there the guests moved to the main reception in the Vilaggio Room where they were greeted with the orchestral sounds of a 12 piece band.  The NY wedding band had the guests right through the door and onto the dance floor.  It was an exciting party from the very start.

The bride and groom had a very special first dance to the Frank Sinatra song, “You Make Me Feel So Young.   The band of course prepared the requested song for the special moment and performed this live.  The bride also had a special wedding dance with her father to the very appropriate song “My Girl” by the Temptations.  The groom then escorted his mom to the dance floor and they had a wonderful moment together dancing to the Nat King Cole song “Our Love Is Here To Stay.   The guests were moved by the moment and felt compelled to jump in on the next dance song.   The dance floor was full with an excited bunch and the energy in the room was astounding.

The dancing continued and the guests were on their feet for hours as the band played continuous live music throughout the evening.  The Around Town Band was asked to play a few of the couple’s favorite songs, to include “Friends In Low Places” by Garth Brooks, “Glory Days” by Bruce Springstein. 

These songs were a huge hit as was the entire evening where the guests danced.  It was the perfect way for Mary Grace and Tom to start their lives together.  This was a classic New York wedding style event with the perfect combination of champagne, dancing and great company along with the perfect New York Wedding Entertainment.

Around Town Entertainment was honored to be part of the great celebration and we wish Mr. and Mrs.  Hackett a lifetime of love and dancing.
