Being a hopeful romantic, Michael had a very well thought out treasure hunt to surprise his love Alison. The weekend before Christmas, Michael arranged to meet Alison in town to give her a Christmas present. When they met he handed Alison a package of Oreos and said that it was the first clue in a treasure hunt and that her Christmas present was buried at the end of it. The first clue was printed on the inside of the Oreo, which initiated a succession of clues around the Brooklyn area. Some of which involved pulling an orange rubber ducky from a lake in Prospect Park to ascertain a clue inside. Eventually the treasure hunt ended at Domino Park at a tree where they had carved their names into when they first started dating.
When they arrived at the tree Alison saw that it was covered with fairy lights, there were white roses and candles all over the ground and music coming from somewhere and he got down on one knee. It was incredibly beautiful and emotional, and also well-timed as the sun was just setting over the trees. Now that is a well-planned hunt! Something the pair will never forget!
Michael and Alison’s wedding was an absolute dream! Everything about it was gorgeous. They had the event at the beautiful Shelburne Farms Inn in Shelburne, Vermont. The ceremony was held in the Coach Barn, a unique and timeless setting on the shores of Lake Champlain with a spectacular view of the Adirondack Mountains.
With a clear sky overhead and string lights, a pianist from Around Town Entertainment started off the day with a special performance as guests walked into the large outdoor courtyard. As guests took their seats, the pianist played John Legend “All of Me.” The bride entered through the Coach Barn’s beautiful brick arched entryway and down the aisle as a piano cover of “Here Comes the Bride” was played much to the enjoyment of family and friends. After the bride and groom exchanged their vows, the pianist performed an emotional ballad of Leon Bridges’s “Beyond.”
Next up was the Cocktail hour where everyone enjoyed drinks on the lawn while catching up with friend’s and family. Guests also gathered around the lake at sunset to watch a guitarist from Around Town Entertainment perform. The reactions from the crowd were priceless. We loved seeing how happy they were!
The party then transitioned to the West Hall for more music and dancing. Michael and Alison picked the Around Town Entertainment’s Around Town Band to perform at the reception and they didn’t disappoint! The wedding band got everyone on the dance floor quickly as the bride and groom entered the building to Beyoncé & Jay Z’s “Crazy in Love.”
The couple then had their first dance to David Gray’s “Sail Away” while guests joined in on the dancing afterward. Then the father and daughter held their own dance to Frank Sinatra’s “The Way You Look Tonight.” The mother/son also had an intimate moment while the wedding band played Lynard Skynard’s “Simple Man.” Truly touching moments! After toasts, the Around Town Band played high energy classic hits including covers from Queen to Nelly to keep guests dancing all night. What a way to end the night!
