River Cottages Wedding Reception the Harveys Jensen Beach Florida

                          The day started off about 3:30pm with gorgeous breezy weather. The setting was River Cottages in Jensen Beach Florida. We were helping run the audio for the ceremony and perform the MC and DJ duties for the reception. Our ceremony system was setup over on the lawn area facing the inter-coastal waterway. We had a small bridal party with 3 groomsman and 3 bridesmaids. The cute little flower girls set the entrance of the bride as they came down the aisle. 

                          After about a 10 minutes ceremony the guests headed over to the reception area underneath the large canopy for cocktails and drinks. The bridal party and family stayed over by the lawn for group photos. We had background music playing with a nice mixture of tropical beachy style music to accommodate the guests and set the mood. We were setup with a fantastic view behind us of the inter-coastal waterway and a long dock right out to the water. Definitely a great place for some pictures. The long open bar to the left side of the DJ booth and the guest tables setup to the right of us. We had a large open dance floor right in front for our guests to dance, bride & groom to do their first dance and much more. 

                         Our bride gave us some selections of music to play for the DJ along with some of our own ideas so we incorporated many of those songs for dinner and the up tempo music for the dancing crowd. The groomsman came out to say a few words to the bride and groom along with some of the other guests who came up to toast to the married couple as well. We then followed the toasts with the cake cutting right on the dance floor. 

                          Later on in the evening as the sun went down we lowered the lights and turned on the DJ lights with moving colors to get the guests in the mood for some fun dance music. We played everything from the 70s,80s and 90s to some current music from the 2000s. We had guests dancing to some of the classic hip hop hits from the 90s and some 70s and 80s rock and roll. We closed out the night with time of your life by Bill Medley. 

                          A great benefit of having your wedding or party at River Cottages is the guest houses to stay in. If you have people coming from out of town you can set them up with a room to stay right where the reception is. The setting is nice along with the views. Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Harvey!
