The Historic Smithville Inn has been serving up hospitality seasoned with delicious meals since 1787. Just recently, Allyson and Matthew chose this cozy destination located in Galloway, NJ for their big day. After the ceremonial “I Do’s” and cocktail hour came every guest’s favorite part of the night-the reception.
To set the mood, guests entered the reception to Lionel Richie’s All Night Long. Wedding guests quickly took their seats and welcomed the bridal party and parents of the bride and groom as they danced their way into the reception while Children by Robert Miles played. Next up was our bride and groom, and boy did they come to party! Allyson and Matthew made their big debut as husband and wife to Tootsee Roll by 69 Boyz.
Next up came the first dance for our bride and groom. They chose Bobby Darin’s Beyond the Sea for this iconic moment as newlyweds. After the bride and groom whisked around the floor, Allyson and her father danced to And I Love Her by the Beatles. Matthew and his mother followed suit and shared their dance to Bob Dylan’s Forever Young.
After the traditional first dances, the bride’s parents welcomed all of the family and friends and the pastor offered a blessing. At the close of the delicious buffet dinner served up by the staff at the Historic Smithville Inn, we opened up the dance floor and let’s just say that everyone wearing a fitbit hit their 10,000 steps.
To honor those that have been married for many years, we played the anniversary dance game to Frank Sinatra’s You Make Me Feel So Young. The longest married couple was married for 65 years! They got onto the mic and shared their secret to a long last marriage.
After the anniversary dance, the cake cutting, and bouquet toss, our newlyweds and guests were free to pop, lock, and drop it for the rest of the night!
Our bride, Allyson, and her friends loved 90s club music so we sprinkled that in our playlist throughout the night. Check out our playlist below!
