Scott and Hilary’s wedding reception was a great time for all of their family and friends.  It was held at Aquinas College’s Donnelly Center.  With well run management by the event coordinator Andrea, the service and food was excellent.

During dinner we relaxed with Colbie Caillat, Norah Jones and Michael Buble.  Scott and Hilary had their first dance to Bryan Adam’s “When you love someone.”  They did a unique thing I haven’t seen before and that was they danced with their In-Laws.   Scott danced with Hilary’s mom and Hilary danced with Scott’s Dad, to Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight.”

To get things started after the special dances, the bride and groom had a really successful dollar dance.

Music for the dancing part of the evening was a lot of fun.  Following the direction of classic oldies to top 40’s later in the evening, I was able to follow the flow of the dance floor and keep people dancing till 11:45.  When I had to stop playing, I had a group of people shouting, “One more song!”

The highlight of Scott and Hilary’s wedding reception for me was most definitely the “Dance Off.”  The bride and groom thought it would be a great idea to get the wedding party to challenge each other to a dance competition to no other than Michael Jackson’s “Beat It.”

Derek Zoolander and Hansel would be proud!
