Having the opportunity to play two weddings for a single family is always a special event for AWB. To entrust our crew with that means the world to us!
Becka and David’s big day started out with a gorgeous ceremony at the Dekalb County Courthouse in Decatur, GA. With a beautiful classical acoustic guitar duo and vocals, our little mini-ceremony band covered Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect”, instrumentally for the bridal party, and the same song with vocals for Becka’s grand entrance! Stunning! After David and Becka were wed in a very heartfelt and moving Jewish ceremony, they exited to Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” instrumentally. Awesome pick! Who was going to ‘stop this feeling’ we had to make this one of the most epic nights in AWB lore? No one!
First dances commenced with some fantastic choices from this all-star, dreamy couple: “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not” – Thompson Square (Becka and David), “In the Mood” – Glen Miller (Grandparents 67th wedding anniversary dance – what a moment!), “The Girl” – City and Colour (David and his mom), and “Sweet Pea” – Amos Lee (Becka and her dad), sweetness to the max!
What do we absolutely love about traditional Jewish weddings? The Horah of course! With an epic seven-minute version of the classic upbeat, chair hoisting throwdown, we are always blown away by the pure elation on the bride and groom’s face while taking in the scene. David and Becka’s moment was one we will never forget!
When we say this reception dance floor was off the chain, roof raised from the foundation – fun, we mean it! Absolutely slamming all night long! Here were some choice picks from the reception (David and Becka have awesome taste!).
“Wagon Wheel” – Old Crow Medicine Show
“Signed, Sealed, Delivered” – Stevie Wonder
“Locked Out of Heaven” – Bruno Mars
“Careless Whisper” – George Michael
“Despacito” – Justin Bieber
“Can’t Stop the Feeling” – Justin Timberlake
Wilders, Azeffs, we can’t thank you enough for letting AWB share these TWO very special days with you guys. You are dream clients to work with and we sincerely hope our paths cross again soon! And from the bottom of the collective AWB heart, thank you so much for these glowing kind words in this awesome review.
“Seriously the best! If you want a band for your wedding these guys are a must! Atlanta Wedding Band played at both our ceremony and reception for our wedding this past January. They are so easy to work with (they helped us work in many surprises throughout our wedding) and sounded amazing. Our dance floor was full the entire reception. We got so many compliments from guests after the wedding too! I highly recommend them.”
Until next time folks!
