Hurricane! What Hurricane? Wedding at the Tendenza in Philadelphia, PA
#TBT for our “Throwback Thursday” we pick August 28, 2011, the evening of Hurricane Irene
Our #TBT wedding highlight includes Jessica and Matt’s dream wedding at Tendenza in Philadelphia, PA. Although the evening of August 28, 2011 was the evening of Hurricane Irene, it was also the same evening as Jessica and Matt’s special night. With months of planning behind them, they would not allow even a hurricane to spoil their happy occasion. The focus that evening was not on the weather but on their unique and special reception. We were lucky to host their ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Their cocktail hour was thematically planned with an 80’s vibe and included artists such as Depeche Mode and New Order.
As the bridal party entered the reception room the song of choice was The Scorpions Rock You Like a Hurricane. The bride and groom’s first dance included the song Polka Dots and Moonbeams by Frank Sinatra recorded with The Tommy Dorsey orchestra. The situation outside could not compare to the amount of energy and enthusiasm during the reception. A song named Home by Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros was a huge crowd pleaser. The last song of the evening was Hero by Enrique Iglesias which had an intimate and special meaning to the couple was followed by an encore of Higher and Higher by Jackie Wilson. All in all it was a fantastic evening with a special group of guests and we were honored to play an important role.
