Ben & Michelle’s ABULAE Wedding Reception

Here are some of the fun highlights of Ben & Michelle’s beautiful ABULAE Wedding Reception!

Once again, Joannie & I would like to start out by thanking Bjorn Meisner of Bjorn Meisner Photography and Brad Rich of A.B. Rich Films for their beautiful work that you’re about to enjoy. Thank you, gentlemen!

Lots of our friends have commented on how beautiful and fun Michelle & Ben’s wedding was and how we set the bar pretty high. Well, you can’t pull that off without a lot of work and planning. Like Michelle, Joannie, Jessica, our daughter Jen and Ben’s sister Nora to name a few. We also had some very high-quality wedding pros helping you out. Besides our photographers Bjorn and his assistant Kate, as well as our videographer Brad, there are two other exceptional wedding pros to thank.

Visually, much of the credit for the way Michelle & Ben’s ABULAE wedding reception looked go to our long-time wedding colleague and friend, Shelli DeBilzan of Forever In Bloom! She did a remarkable job on the flowers and decorating of the ballroom! The ballroom looked like a million dollars (without spending anywhere near that)!

Master of Ceremonies & DJ

Secondly, I would like to thank Matt Rush from Bellagala for his fine work as our Master of Ceremonies & DJ all night long. Thank you, Matt, for your fun attitude, your professionalism, and for keeping the night moving along without a hitch.

Michelle & Ben’s ABULAE wedding reception finale begins with the wedding party at nearby Mears Park for some great night shots complete with sparklers!

The image below is Bjorn’s handiwork along with the Photoshop post-production work of yours truly tossed in.

After Mears Park, everyone was back inside warming up for the Grand March, speeches, cake cutting and the “Shoe Game!”

Michelle & Ben’s first dance as husband & wife followed. Then dancing, including my dance with Michelle as “Father of the Bride” and also Jessica’s dance with her son.

The highlight video has a ton of still images and great (and funny) video clips of people dancing. Then the Bouquet & Garter toss, and the final dance of the evening to Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” on a packed dance floor!

Thank you for letting us share Michelle & Ben’s beautiful ABULAE wedding day with you! Happy New Year!
