And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the time of their lives celebrating with Elese Merkovsky and Michael Tressa in the Aspen Room at Toftrees Resort. Their reception followed their wedding nuptials at the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center on Penn State’s main campus which was performed by the bride’s uncle, Reverend Paul Merkovsky. Elese wore a stunning sleeveless, lace gown while Mike sported a blue suit and maroon flowered tie. The bridesmaids were arrayed in navy blue, sleeveless gowns, and the groomsmen were attired in gray suits, light blue shirts, and dark ties.

McCarthy Flowers created sensational flower arrangements that were displayed in the Aspen Room alongside the lovely bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages held or worn by family and friends. The bride and groom cut a charming wedding cake created by the bride’s aunt. Elese and Mike had a magnificent display of candy and cookies for friends and family to box and take home in celebration of their wedding nuptials. Toftrees’ Katie Clegg along with her staff were absolutely fabulous mixing and pouring drinks, creating fabulous displays of hors d’oeuvres and later sliders, and serving the scrumptious meal entrees to guests.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment kept the guests dancing and having fun the entire night. After introductions, Elese and Mike performed their first dance to Francis & The Lights featuring Chance The Rapper’s “May I Have This Dance.” While dancing in front of the big windows in the Aspen Room, the bride and groom showed off their exciting dance moves. The bride then danced with her father to Rascal Flatts’ “My Wish.” Next, Mike took the stage with his mother dancing to “When I Look At the Sky” by Train. Mike has an incredible sense of humor, and it showed while cutting the rug with his mom. Later, Elese, Mike, family and friends laughed, sang, shouted, and had an incredible night dancing to the sounds of And We Danced DJ Entertainment. The last song of the night truly expressed the feelings of the happy couple, (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.

Mike and Elese met in State College while working for a local television station. They began dating a few months later. The couple moved to Chicago and continued their romance. Mike proposed to Elese at her favorite vacation destination, the Outer Banks in North Carolina. After celebrating, they decided that the best place to hold their wedding ceremony and reception would be in the town that they first met each other, State College, Pennsylvania. Now, their new adventure as man and wife begins.

Thank you Mike and Elese for choosing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your wedding day festivities. Good luck in your new life as husband and wife!

And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the pleasure of providing sound and music for the marriage of Sash Schaeffer and Bo Hickey at the lovely Belle Mountain Estates. The couple met in Philadelphia when Sash was attending Temple University and Bo was working at the University of Pennsylvania. Bo’s grandfather, Ray Kauffman, performed the charmingly warm ceremony under the sunflower and flora festooned trellis arch. The bride wore a beautiful sleeveless, lace, mermaid style gown with train. Sash’s bridesmaids were attired in fabulous sleeveless, dusty blue gowns. Bo and his groomsmen sported navy blue suits with debonair dusty blue ties.

Since Bo and Sash live in Texas, they wanted a little western theme incorporated into their wedding day. The bride and her bridesmaids carried a delightful arrangement of sunflowers, baby’s breath and greenery created by Forever in Bloom. Charlene’s Cake Company crafted the gorgeous, three tiered wedding cake along with red velvet, chocolate and strawberry cupcakes. Mission BBQ presented a bounteous assortment of hors d’oeuvres, and a delicious buffet for all to partake and enjoy. Diane Kovach of DB Impressions Photography was the wonderful photographer that captured the couple’s first dance and all the enchanting moments throughout the day and night.

And We Danced DJ Entertainment furnished the heavenly tunes for all to enjoy that night. Bo and Sash begin their night dancing to “Best Shot” by Jimmie Allen. Following their first dance, Sash, Bo and their bridal party enticed family and friends to get up and dance with Walk The Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance.” A memorable moment occurred when Bo was dancing with his mother to “A Mother’s Prayer” by Melissa DuVall. Sash was watching the moment on the side of the dance floor when Bo’s mom invited her to dance with them. It was an amazing moment to see the three dancing. As the song began to fade, mom placed Sash’s hand in her son’s.

Thank you Bo and Sash for choosing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your wedding day festivities. Good luck in your new life as husband and wife!
