Reception Recap: Officers Club (Denise & Andrew)

Published 05/15/2018

Denise & Andrew were referred to us by their venue (Officer's Club) and their photographer (Erick Brown) and when we met with them on a rainy day we learned how much of an important the music at their wedding was to them.  We also learned the pair met at a bar while they were both stationed in Hawaii! Denise's dad also was worried about the music since he understood that the music can make or break a wedding, needless to say, we liked him. During our meeting, we chatted all about the music and learned the big do not play - Pearl Jam.  When the big day finally came in May it was a beautiful night at the Officer's Club filled with lots of fun and dancing, just what they wanted. The bride also shared a special father-daughter dance with a song she has known would be the song she would dance to her dad with at her wedding since she was a little girl.
