Tricia Huddas & Co. Real Wedding: Colleen and Mike Part 3

The dance floor was packed all night at Colleen's reception. The venue, Till Midnight took care of a lot of the details; and Colleen was particularly lucky that they use black linens as their standard, which is what she wanted to use.

As you can see her decor was Black and Red – Colleen loves red roses so the look was carried throughout the wedding. The bridesmaids wore a simple black Ann Taylor dress and the groomsmen were clad in classic black tuxes with red ties. We used a damask logo on all of her wedding invitations, programs and menu cards – Colleen even found black damask votive candles that could not have been more perfect.

For Colleen and Mike's first dance their good friend and groomsman, Tim Obbink, serenaded the couple with the song Follow Through by Gavin DeGraw.

Tim comes from a truly musical family. His mother was the pianist for the ceremony, and Tim stepped in for the lighting of the Unity Candle and played the piano and sang I Will Be Here by Steven Curtis Chapman. It gives me goose bumps just thinking about how beautiful and touching it was!

The band, Mac Daddy, let Mike and Colleen join them for a song! I am not sure how we didn’t get a picture of that, but I know it is out there in the world of YouTube – probably better that it stays that way! Mike was great on the drums, but Colleen’s tambourine skills need some work

Colleen loves sweets so there had to be a significant dessert bar. In addition to the cake made my our Mom, they served chocolate mousse, brownies, lemon bars and in honor of Colleen – Cupcakes (Mike's nickname for Colleen).

The evening went …wait for it…'til midnight, and I think had we kept the band going, the guests would have kept on dancing well past - the true sign of a spectacular evening.

Here is my new fiancee and myself relaxing after our spin on the dance floor.

It was a great night and Mike is a welcome addition to our family! Cheers and congratulations again Colleen and Mike!
