And some of the special details that WE LOVE:

Kiss to Kiss activity during dinner.

Katherine and Brandon provided us with the names of a few special couples, and DJ David called on them to help demonstrate “how a married couple is supposed to kiss”.  This was so fun and inclusive, and helped set the tone for the dancing that followed.

SPECIAL Anniversary Dance

As a way to fill the dance floor while also celebrating married couples, this dance began with the bride & groom AND anyone married 50 years or more.  Then newest married and longest marrieds, including the bride’s Great Aunt & Uncle, Chuck & Marilyn Smith, enjoyed the spotlight and applause before other married couples were invited to join them and fill the dance floor.

Goodbye Circle Sing-along into Sparkler Exit

Everyone was invited to circle up with the bride and groom and join in singing their alma mater, Carmen Ohio together.  At the end of the song, the wedding party led everyone outside to prepare for the spectacular SPARKLER EXIT!!!
