On Saturday September 24, 2016, AWB hit the road for the picturesque Ball Ground, GA’s Wheeler House for the wedding of Scott and Kelsey Sears. Scott and Kelsey saw us at our showcase on January 10, 2016 at Tin Roof Cantina, booked us that evening and were an absolute pleasure to work with!
The weekend’s festivities began with Atlanta Wedding Band’s own Nathan Sexton and John Thrasher performing Scott and Kelsey’s rehearsal dinner at the Corner District, also in Ball Ground. Memorable toasts were shared and Nate and John performed requests late into the evening.
On Saturday, Atlanta Wedding Band’s own Brandon Kunka and Nate Sexton performed the wedding on dual classical acoustic guitars. The bridal party entered to “Canon in D” by Pachelbel, the radiant Kelsey entered to “She is Love” by Parachute, and the processional was capped off by the classic, “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” by Stevie Wonder.
AWB’s reception band included John Thrasher on guitar and vocals, Brandon Kunka on bass and vocals, Nate Sexton on guitar and vocals, Jeff Spirko on keys and fiddle, and Casey Crogan on drums.
Kelsey and Scott’s first dance was to the stunning Sam Smith B-Side, “Latch”. Scott and his mom danced to the Michael Jackson classic, “I’ll Be There”, and Kelsey and her dad danced to Stevie Wonder’s timeless “Isn’t She Lovely”. All three first dances were sung by Atlanta Wedding Band’s own, Nathan Sexton.
The dancing/reception portion of the evening was highlighted by covers from artists; Earth Wind and Fire, Third Eye Blind, Coolio!, .38 Special, Ray Charles, Tom Petty, and George Michael to name just a few. Scott and Kelsey’s closest friends and family flooded the dance floor with glow in the dark necklaces, glasses, bracelets, you name it. Even an impromptu karaoke party was enjoyed during one of our breaks!
We’d like to sincerely thank Scott and Kelsey for being so great to work with and wish them all the best! Until next time!
