Bride Blogger Update: Bust a Move

Bride Blogger Catherine was married this past weekend and I am dying to hear all about it!  Yet, until she returns home to D.C. after the honeymoon, I supposed we will have to wait…In the meantime, here is her fun story behind their band!


My fiancé (now husband!) and I wanted to have a lively dance party during the reception, so we decided to put a lot of thought into choosing the right music.

Music is what drives the energy of the night, so know in advance what your dancing preference is. Because music was so important to us, we decided to hire a band — one of the best decisions we made.

We knew the moment that we watched their promo videos online that they were a perfect complement to our vision. The song that sold us: Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a prayer.” What made us love them more was being able to meet them and to see them perform at local wedding planning events.
