On March 25, 2017, Atlanta Wedding Band hit the road for Chateau Elan Winery in Braselton, Georgia for the wedding of an awesome pair, Paul and Liz Blackwell.
Atlanta Wedding Band kicked off the festivities for the evening performing the ceremony for Paul and Liz in Chateau Elan’s beautiful lobby. Nathan Sexton performed the timeless classics, “Trumpet Voluntary” for the seating of mothers and grandmothers, “Canon in D” for the Bridal Party Entrance, “Bridal Chorus” for the bridal entrance, and the Marvin Gaye throwback, “How Sweet It Is” for Paul and Liz’s exit.
All of Paul and Liz’s closest friends and family then convened upon the Chateau Elan ballroom for some heartfelt toasts, cocktails, dancing, and the finest of dining.
Atlanta Wedding Band’s reception band included Nathan Sexton on bass, guitar, and vocals, Marshall Coats on guitar and vocals, John Thrasher on guitar and vocals, and Travis Jones on drums and vocals.
Paul and Liz’s first dance was “Scotch and Soda” by the Kingston Trio. Great pick!
The reception was one filled with very high energy and the mass majority of Paul and Liz’s closest friends and family flooding the dance floor! Some notable covers from the night included the following; “Make You Feel My Love”, Bob Dylan, “Shake It Off”, Taylor Swift, No Diggity by Blackstreet, Teach Me How to Dougie by California Swag District, “Tearing up My Heart” by N Sync, “Footloose” by Kenny Loggins, “When a Man Loves a Woman” by Percy Sledge, “Eastbound and Down” by Jerry Reed, “Blackbird” by the Beatles, “It Had to Be You” by Harry Connick Jr., “Don’t Stop Believin” by Journey, and “I’ve Had the Time of My Life” from Dirty Dancing, to name a few.
AWB would like to thank Paul and Liz Blackwell for having us as well as everyone from Chateuau Elan. Until next time folks!
