On the evening of March 30th, 2019, Anne headed to The Inn at Longshore for her old friend Audrey’s wedding. Unbeknownst to Anne, this wedding would change her life… At the reception, while Anne was waiting in line for a drink, she felt a tap on her shoulder. She spun around to meet a woman named Elissa. Elissa began to ask Anne a load of questions, as a part of her hunt to find a worthy companion for her “charming and handsome” son, Adam. Based on the description, and photo that the woman showed her, Anne was certainly intrigued! As the wedding came to an end, Elissa asked Anne for her number so she could give it to Adam. Anne enthusiastically obliged.
Days went by; Anne was yet to hear from Adam. She started to think that surely it was too good to be true. That is, until April 4th, when she finally got the text she was waiting for! Their conversation continued through the day and night and on. Adam asked Anne if she would like to go on a date with him the upcoming weekend. On the evening of April 11th, they met at the Manhattan Cricket Club, which continued until they were the last customers in the bar.
Adam and Anne celebrated their big day at Le Chateau in South Salem, NY. Their ceremony—which took place on Le Chateau’s grounds—was accompanied by Around Town Entertainment’s pianist! Anne looked radiant as she glided down the aisle as the pianist played “Can’t Help Falling In Love,” and Adam smiled in anticipation. After the couple exchanged their vows, they happily walked back up the aisle to “Here Comes the Sun” as their friends and family applauded.
Adam, Anne, and their guests then headed to Le Chateau’s scenic Pierpoint Room for cocktails. As everyone drank and mingled, they enjoyed music from Around Town’s Jazz Trio, which featured a pianist, a guitarist, and a bass player!
Everyone then moved over to the Ballroom for the reception! The wedding party entered the ballroom to Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” played by Around Town’s Altitude Band. Everyone cheered as Anne and Adam strutted into the ballroom to “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)” by Natalie Cole, getting the celebration started! The band then slowed things down for the couple’s first dance—” Everything” by Michael Bublé! From the way they looked into each other’s eyes as they danced, it was clear that Anne and Adam are each other’s “everything.” Anne then shared a dance with her father to “Love Someone” by Lukas Graham, and Adam and his mother—the woman who started it all—danced to Stevie Wonder’s “You Are the Sunshine of my Life.” After the slow dances concluded, the Altitude Band brought the energy up as everyone came onto the dance floor to do the Hora!
Anne and Adam took a moment to celebrate another couple—Anne’s parents, Amy and Marty, who were celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary! A toast was shared in their honor, and Amy and Marty said that they hope Anne and Adam share as much happiness as they have over the years. Amy and Marty then took to the dance floor to recreate their first dance to Billy Joel’s “You’re My Home.”
The Altitude Band had everyone rocking well into the night, playing all of Anne and Adam’s favorite songs, including Ray LaMontagne’s “You Are the Best Thing” and “Love Shack” by the B-52’s!
Thank you Adam and Anne for having the Altitude Band underscore your fairytale wedding!
