I’ll start by saying Matt and Susan have lots of friends. Over 300 people attended thier celebration. I’ve not been to The Kolping Center in some time. It is a sprawling room with a huge dancefloor. It was decorated nicely for Christmas and easily held this large crowd.
Let’s start with a look at our set-up for the night.
The head table and our set-up. The Bose speakers are so sleak you barely notice them here.

Matt and Susan came to us on referal from a wedding I did 7 years ago. Tune into my next blog for more on that.
These two are just right for each other. They are both fun and easy going. It was actually difficult finding ways to customize their reception becasue they both so easy going.
Customize we did though. Susan is a big New Kids on The Block fan. So their wedding party was introduced dancing their way in to Hangin Tuff. Everyone knew why, when that song came on. Matt is a huge Notre Dame Fan so the newlyweds entered their party to the Notre Dame Fight Song and 300 + cheering fans!
Another chance to customize came up when Susan let me know she did not want the garter removal. While at the same time Matt really wanted to throw the Garter. It just so happens that I knew they were going to Philedelphia to Monday Night Football for their honeymoon. So I suggested placing the garter on a Football and having them both sign the ball before tossing it to the guys to the Monday Night Football theme song.

They really had a great time. Here are a few more pictures from this incredible party.
Let's open the dancefloor!
So Susan made Matt Promise not to smash. He fell for it.
When your last dance looks like this, you know it was a party
