(Declan) was selected to provide music for the Weaver (Zayne & Jamie) wedding at Historic Shady Lane in Manchester, PA on June 17th, here’s his recap!
It was my first time spinning tunes at this venue and I have to say, wow! Beautiful property, well organized, and Steve and the staff are fantastic. The tent was beautifully laid out and decorated and the couple added a bit of their personal touch to it as well.
The ceremony was down the hill in this quiet little area near the main house. One word would describe this location, picturesque.
Cocktail hour was up the hill in the patio area and they were treated to live music from Ethan, on keyboard and occasionally on acoustic guitar. Ethan actually grew up with Jamie, and come to find out, she had said to him a long time ago, you’re going to sing at my wedding. That’s how good he was and is.
After introductions, first dance (Pulp, “Something Changed”), Toasts, we eased into the dinner portion of the evening. To my delighted surprise, Zayne and Jamie requested that the dinner hour be filled with Irish Folk music. Being from Ireland myself, I was thrilled to put together a playlist for this hour. I really enjoyed getting to play songs I NEVER play at a wedding.
After parent dances, the cupcake bar, the actual bar, and dance floor were open to all!
