October 17, 2014 had us set up for Cory and Nicole’s Crystal Grand Banquets Wedding! This was our second appearance at this Lemont, Illinois venue, and, as usual, the service was impeccable! Before guests walked into the Grand room, they were able to search for their name cards, which were leaves on an apple that was fully imprinted with the “Hainlen” last name (because Cory’s family owns an apple orchard)! Once they entered the room, guests were greeted with live music from a three-piece bluegrass band, The Kindred Sisters, while they enjoyed a few cocktails on the house.
Once introductions started, the energy in the room really picked up! The bridal party gave it their all as they each struck a pose or did an unforgettable dance as their names were called; and to top it all off, Cory and Nicole entered from the top of a beautiful staircase raising their hands as everyone cheered on!
During dinner guests enjoyed hearing heartfelt speeches by the best man, maid of honor, and bride and groom. Once the plates were cleared the dance floor filled up! We played many of Cory and Nicole’s hand-picked favorites such hits from Destiny’s Child, Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, and TLC. It was a mainly 90′s throwback night that had guests partying until the very end!
Congratulations Cory and Nicole on your wedding! Thank you for letting us be a part of your big day and being an awesome couple to work with!
