Woodring’s Floral Gardens provided the beautiful pink and coral flower bouquets, boutonnières, and corsages for the day. Melanie and Brandon chose Dolce Vita Desserts’ chocolate cake with a hint of coffee as their wedding cake flavor along with lemon flavored white cupcakes. The frosting on the wedding cake depicted a stunning forest scene with coniferous trees and mountains. Paul’s Provisions furnished the luscious food for the event. Kimberly Wright of Kimberly Wright Photography was capturing those special moments between Melanie, Brandon, family and friends throughout the day and night.

Tyler Kleinle of TK Videography & Photography was constantly on the move securing the memorable moments of the day along with special wishes for Brandon and Melanie from friends and family members.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment was 1,809 feet above sea level while providing sound, lights, emceeing and music for Katie Foytik and Kurtis Webb’s marriage and reception at Harrison’s Above the Valley Event Center in Centre Hall on August 11th. Katie wore a stunning off-white, sleeveless gown with a beaded bodice. Her sparkly, gold sequined tennis shoes were a marvelous pairing to her ensemble. Katie held a beautiful bouquet of light orange roses offset by a collection of white flowers.  Kurtis and his groomsmen wore black suits with white shirts.

Katie was escorted down the aisle by her father. Joshua Wallace of Milton, PA was the officiant for the ceremony. Katie was traditional for most of the ceremony, but she was untraditional for the recessional. She surprised her husband by having And We Danced DJ Entertainment play “Fly, Eagles, Fly” for the recessional, since Kurtis is a BIG fan of the Philadelphia Eagles . When he heard the beginning of the song, his jaw dropped, and he quickly turned to Katie with a stunned expression! Before leaving the room, he shouted E-A-G-L-E-S at the end of the song and left to take some stunning photos with the view at Above the Valley!

Kurtis and Katie met through a social app. Her theme for the wedding was gold, white and pink. Dolce Vita Desserts provided an enticing array of cupcake flavors for the event along with the beautiful white cake that Kurtis and Katie cut together to celebrate the day. Shannon Susi was the photographer for the Foytik-Webb marriage day.

While Kurtis and Katie were preparing to feed each other a piece of cake, the crowd was asked if the couple would be nice while feeding each other the piece of cake. Kurtis and Katie were not nice and had icing smeared on their faces. And We Danced asked if they would kiss, and Kurtis promptly made sure that Katie had more icing than he did while kissing!

Thank you Kurtis and Katie for allowing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your marriage ceremony and reception. Good luck in your new life as husband and wife!

The bride’s theme for the event was navy blue accented with gold and coral. Her bridesmaids wore stunning navy blue dresses which were accented with beautiful coral bouquets designed by Woodrings Floral Gardens of State College.

The fast-paced summer tour continued for And We Danced DJ Entertainment at the Ramada Hotel & Conference Center with the marriage of Dwayne Smith and Beth Stover on Saturday, June 16, 2018.  Beth wore a stunning taupe colored lace dress accented with sequins.  Her matron of honor wore a similar lace dress accented with sequins in a dark tan color.  Dwayne wore a dapper gray suit while his best man sported a navy blue suit for the occasion.

Beth and Dwayne chose orange and purple as the color theme for the day.  Balloons decorated the walls and tables, and a gold balloon “congrats” sign appeared on the wall behind the bridal party table.  The bouquets, boutonnières, and table arrangements were designed by the neighbor of the groom and featured a remarkable blending of white to orange flowers.

The newlyweds started the night dancing to “We’ve Only Just Begun” by the Carpenters.  They had both graduated in the early seventies and wanted the music for the night to feature sixties and seventies music melodies.  And We Danced led the festivities for the bouquet and garter toss.  No ladies or men wanted to admit that they were single.  Dwayne and Beth helped And We Danced target the single ladies and men in the attendance.  A young woman caught the bouquet.  The photographer, a relative of the groom, caught the garter.  When it came time to place the garter on the young woman, we found out that the young woman was the photographer’s daughter.  Instead of placing the garter on the leg, the garter was placed on the young woman’s arm!!

The night was spectacular and featured tons of fun!  And We Danced played a memorable song for Dwayne’s oldest living relative that was in attendance that night.  He appeared on the dance floor dancing with his relative.  Many guests captured pictures and video of the event.

Thank you Dwayne and Beth for inviting And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be the entertainment and emcees for your wedding reception!!!

And We Danced DJ Entertainment was proud to provide the right songs and music for Jen Berkebile and Erik Schmalz’s spectacular wedding reception. Jen did not have a particular theme for the day, but she knew that poppies and ranunculus had to be the flowers of the day. She then chose colors that would work well with her choice of flowers. Jen wore a beautiful taupe dress, and her bridesmaids wore poppy colored dresses. The groom and groomsmen sported blue suits with poppy colored ties.

Jennifer Berkebile and Erik Schmalz met while in college at Duquesne University. They moved to the State College area to continue their education. Erik proposed to Jen in May, 2016. On June 2, 2018, Joe Jividen, friend and officiant, performed the wedding ceremony at the Rhoneymeade Arboretum and Sculpture Garden. Later, the party adjourned to the General Potter Farm to continue the celebration. And We Danced DJ Entertainment provided the music that had people dancing, singing and partying the night away. Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths was busy capturing the awesome fun and poses the guests were displaying that night.

Jen, Erik, family and friends were either on the dance floor or mugging for a picture behind the photo booth.  Full Circle Farms was the fantastic flower artists of the day for both the ceremony and reception. Instead of cake, the couple chose apple, cherry, blueberry, shoofly, chocolate shoofly, rhubard and strawberry rhubard pies as the dessert of the night. They were made by Dutch Valley Bakery. That Kitchen Witch was the caterer for the reception. Ellen and her staff were also busy bees keeping the bountiful buffet line moving and enjoyable.

Thank you Jen and Erik for allowing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your wedding celebration! It was very clear that day that Jen Berkebile and Erik Schmalz were meant to be!!!
