Ranesha & Ryan's Wedding


Today we are heading to The United Veterans Association Of Blair County in Altoona for the Wedding Reception of Raneasha and Ryan. Mother Nature has continued her fun of raining on parades today with a steady cold rain. 

After the Grand Entrance and toasts by the maid of honor and best man, we were treated to a meal by the UVA, that was out of this world. We then cut the cake to "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" by Queen. Ryan was nice enough to feed Raneasha the cake, she made him take a shot to the chin of cake. A little cake battle ensued afterwards before they got cleaned up and took center stage for their first dance as husband and wife to "For You I Will" by Monica. The bridal party was then asked to join the bride and groom for a special dance to "Party Rock Anthem" by LMFAO. Followed by the God Mother/Daughter Dance & Mother/Son Dance.

We then opened the dance floor and paused for the garter/bouquet toss and the Mr & Mrs Game, where learned that Ryan is more likely to drop his phone in the toilet and is on Facebook more, while  Raneasha wears the pants in the relationship and is more likely to deal with a spider in the bathtub.

Cousin Steve then treated us to a short story about the accordion and than a polka played on his accordion.

There was some bizarre drinking game with the groom, best man, and a couple other male guests and groomsmen that happened to Thuderstruck from AC/DC...don't ask what, because we are not so sure we understood it either.

We then had to inform the Bride and Groom that somehow the song they had chosen as their last dance was for some reason coming up corrupted. We asked them if they had another song they would prefer and they said they would think of something. It was then we found out that the song was the first song they ever kissed to, and by god if we had to sing it ourselves we were going to make that song happen. After about 5 different ways of trying to figure out how to make it work with no Wi-Fi we figured it out and were able to make that special moment happen for them. The night ended with "What a Wonderful World" by The Clarks.

Congratulations To Mr & Mrs. Duffy!

Blaise Alexander Hyundai Mazda Christmas Party

Tonight we are headed to The Atherton Hotel in State College for the Blaise Alexander Hyundai Mazda Holiday Party. Guests start arriving around 7PM and enjoy some time to talk things over with people they haven't seen in a while and just mingle and enjoy some drinks. 
While we were still doing some prep work as guests were filtering in and the music was on, our Bride from September 29th came over to say hello, turns out her husband works for Blaise Alexander Hyundai Mazda, it was a nice surprise to see them again.
After mingling for a bit the General Manager John Broome took to the microphone to thank everyone for coming out. Again, it is nice to hear the managers take value in their employees. As they gave out awards last night he said several times "I wish I could give everyone an award". After the awards and some acknowledgements of people in the company who others don't see everyday and thanking everyone for all they do it was off to the dancing.

Ciara & Andrew's Wedding

Today we are headed right up the road for the Wedding Reception of Ciara and Andrew. We have to tell you from the word go, this was one of our favorite couples to work with. Ciara knew what she wanted but was very laid back and open to suggestions. Andrew was the kind of guy you meet, say a few words to and are legit belly laughing with just 5 minutes later. 10 minutes into meeting these 2 together, we felt like we knew them for years.
After the Grand Entrance there were a few toasts from the best man and the maid of honor. It was then Andrew's grandfather who had been picked to do the blessing, but thought he needed to make a toast and informed all of us that the only way he knew how to make toast was with a toaster in the kitchen. (Andrew gets his sense of humor from here, you can tell)
After that we are served dinner from Curt's BBQ in Mill Hall and then cut the cake. 
After the cake cutting, Andrew & Ciara took…
