The Alverthorpe Abington Art Center Wedding of Allison and John
On Saturday October 5th, 2019 I was the Wedding DJ for Allison & John’s wedding reception. The party was held at the Abington Art Center in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Allison and John were a really fun couple, and a blast working with. As a Wedding DJ it’s important to play all sorts of music from many different genres and eras including a plethora of diverse artists. Most brides and grooms are concerned with making sure we play a little bit of something for everyone. In my opinion four to five hours is more than enough time to keep everyone happy, whether it be with Country, Jazz, Motown, Rock and Roll, Hip-Hop or Top 40, I have no problem fitting it all in. This was very important to Allison & John, simply because as in most wedding receptions, their guests varied in both age and musical taste.
This was a wedding that I was anticipating for months, because I knew it was going to be a great time at a great venue. We have been working at the Alverthorpe Manor located at the Abington Art Center for many years. It’s always nice to work at a familiar, scenic place. Once cocktail hour ended, we brought everyone in to the pavilion and began our introductions. The parents, flower girls, bridal party, and bride and groom each had came out and the guests were cheering so hard it almost overpowered the music. Once the first dance was finished, everyone was ready to dance the night away. After dinner ended, we quickly got all the guests out on the dance floor. I played everything from “Land of a 1000 Dances” by Wilson Pickett to “Friends In Low Places” by Garth Brooks as well as tons of other great party hits in between. The bride and groom were out on the dance floor through out the entire night, along with their friends and family. The reception was a great time, which enjoyed by all. The up lights were also a nice touch to the décor of the reception; they really set the mood during dinner and dancing.
Allison and John were wonderful to work with! I enjoyed getting to know them before the wedding and it was an honor to be a part of their celebration. I also had the opportunity to work with Mallory McClure Photography, they did a phenomenal job. The pictures came out great and I appreciate Mallory for letting me feature them on the blog.
