La Boda Loca

Is that a new Ricky Martin song? Nope! For those of you not fluent in Spanish, La Boda Loca means “The Crazy Wedding”.

Anita was one of the most unique Brides I’ve met in the last 20 years. She was all personality. She’s cool. She’s crazy. She’s fun. She’s the only Mexican I know who has a southern accent and likes 80′s Rock Hair Bands like White Snake, Poison, and Bon Jovi. So unique!
.
What a great night! Let’s start with the cake which looked more like a circus! I was cracking up when I saw it. I thought it was the coolest. I salute all couples who dare to be different!
Bride Quote Of The Year from Anita: “Rich, if the guests look at me when I’m coming down the isle, I may throw-up!”
.
That was so funny. I joked with her that maybe I should make an announcement before the ceremony. It would go something like this:
“Ladies and Gentleman, the ceremony is about to begin. Please DO NOT make eye contact with the Bride or she will throw-up on you. Thank you.”

We had a good laugh at that one. Yes, she was nervous. VERY nervous! Here is a picture of the beautiful Bride with her new husband Tim. Look Mom! No more nerves! Two Bands and a DJ: Anita celebrated her Mexican culture by having Marriachi’s play during the cocktail hour. Tim celebrated his Italian culture by having an Italian Trio play during the dinner. Very cool.

Yes, I loved this Bride! But the Groom was awesome too. He was kind, articulate, and had a great sense of humor. And you could tell how happy he was to marry Anita. What a great couple.

Motown Wednesday!

That was so cool. I just got back from the Four Tops-Temptations Concert. I was the Master Of Ceremonies for the show this evening. I love being an MC! What a fun job I have! What a great show too! Here is a cool pic I took of the legendary Temptations on stage while they were singing “My Girl”. (a very popular song at weddings!)

Wedding – Mountain Winery

100 people attended Tyson and Sahana’s celebration at the Saratoga Mountain Winery last night. And what a beautiful night it was! The groom Tyson is my hero. Here he is dancing to “Like A Prayer” by Madonna with a bunch of girls and a groomsman. It is rare to see a guy dancing to Madonna. Two thumbs WAY UP for this groom!
Tyson and Sahana could not make up their mind on their first dance song. In fact, they didn’t tell me what it was going to be until 2 minutes before they were actually going to dance to it. But I could easily tell after the song started that they were very happy with their decision. The guests loved it too.

First Dance: “Is This Love” – Bob Marley
Father-Daughter Dance: “Stand By Me” – John Lennon
Farewell Dance: “When I’m 64″ – The BeatlesHere’s a great picture of the beautiful bride Sahana having fun with her husband! They had 3 cakes last night. One cake for them…and then one cake for each of their friends who were celebrating a birthday. What a classy move to think of others on your wedding day.
