The Smith’s Take-over Loose Mansion
This past Saturday evening, I had the pleasure to be a part of Erin & Dan’s special evening at Loose Mansion. Although heavy rain greeted the guests upon arrival, the Mansion was in it’s usual spectacular form. As the guests arrived, I noticed something about this group, they were truely excited to be at the Mansion with Erin & Dan and families.
As the guests mingled & visited with each other, I began the formalities. From the middle of the steps I addressed the 190ppl and gave them a quick overview of the evening to help make this reception more spectacular. With the greeting over, it was time to get the crowd ready for an energetic entrance by the Bridal Party. As I announced the Bridal Party members they strutted and danced their way down the beautiful mansion staircase to “Sexyback”. By the time I got to the last couple (Best Man & Maid of Honor) the Mansion was filled with eletricity & anticipation for our Guests of Honor. The song switched over to “Can’t get enough of your love, baby” by Barry White, “Ladies & Gentleman it’s an honor to introduce to you, Mr. & Mrs. Dan Smith” as the last name was said, the 190 guests screamed it along with me. Here they come down the staircase, strutting, dancing and celebrating what is going to be a wonderful marriage.
As the evening progressed on the new 3rd floor addition, I witnessed 2 firsts. The very first first, was a bride’s maid doing the chorographed step-by-step dance to “Bye Bye Bye” by N’sync, and receiving a rousing ovation. The second firsts, was when guests were in a circle dancing, a gentleman with a prostetic leg brought his chair to the center, loosened his leg, spun it around, reattached it and went back to his table. From that point on, I knew this was the party crowd they showed they were going to be during the entrance.
With all the guests fully engaged in dancing, I looked around and said to myself “this IS truely an ENCORE event”.
