On Saturday we were at Laube Hall in Freeport Pennsylvania. The event was a wedding reception for Carly and Christopher. Carly and Christopher were married at 3:00 pm at St. Barnabas Church in Brackenridge. Guests began arriving at Laube Hall at 4:30 pm where they enjoyed cocktails and appetizers as the bridal party posed for photographs. At 6:00 pm we formally introduced the bridal party into the ballroom and then everyone enjoyed a 7 minute photo montage featuring Carly and Christopher. Next, Carly and Chris cut their wedding cake and then played The Newlywed Game prior to dinner. Dinner was prepared by the staff at A Grand Affair Catering and was served buffet style.
After dinner, Carly and Chris shared in their first dance together as husband and wife to the song Can’t Help Falling In Love by Andrea Bocelli & Katherine McPhee. Next, the newlyweds danced with the bridal party and then Carly danced with her father and Chris danced with his mother before we opened up the dance floor. Throughout the remainder of the evening, guests danced to the sounds of DJ Pifemaster until the wedding reception ended at 10:30 pm.
