One of our favorite tropical venues sits right here in Orlando, Florida. Paradise Cove is a hidden gem with a tiki bar and pavilion and beach! So naturally this style of venue tell us a few things about our couple before we even start to dig in. One: they are relaxed and fun loving. Two: most likely they want to dance!!!!

When we first talked to Megan + Chris we asked them to paint a colorful picture of how they wanted their wedding reception to feel and the music style they wanted to accompany it. In three words, they said “lots of dancing!” Like most of us, they couldn’t just choose their top 3 favorite songs, but rather they wanted a wide variety of music including country, EMD and Top 40. Chris LOVES deep house and Megan loves Justin Timberlake, Top 40 and Country!

Their wedding started off on the beach at Paradise Cove. Chris’ entrance included a boat entrance to the ceremony to the song “Sexy Boy” featuring Shawn. Following the ceremony was the cocktail hour with beachy vibe music like Bob Marley and Jimmy Buffett, followed by cocktail hour at the tiki bar.

For the reception, we set up amber uplighting underneath the wedding pavilion. The ambiance of the lighting was incredible and enhanced the already strung market lighting. To kick off the reception, we introduced the parents, family, and wedding party in. Then came Megan + Chris to “Now That We Found Love” by Heavy D and they transitioned right into their first dance as a newlywed couple to “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran.

After their first dance they had a champagne wedding toast by one of their bridesmaids and groomsmen. Dinner music vibes included all types: R&B, love songs like Boys II Men, and Mariah Carey. We always enjoy working with Orlando Caterer, Cocktails Catering! To make sure they had plenty of time for dancing, we suggested the Parent Dances right after dinner so they could just dance the rest of the night away!
