Let's be honest: Emily and Austin are basically rock stars. From the moment you stepped onto the beautiful lawn at the Ball House & Cottages, it was clear that this wedding would be anything but traditional. Vitamin String Quartet tributes to bands like Blink-182 and the Foo Fighters set the mood for the arriving guests. The bride herself walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of "Hear You Me" by Jimmy Eat World. The ceremony was personal and downright hilarious, filled with quotes, anecdotes, and tons of love shared by the couple (which isn't surprising considering Sara Michaels from Saramonies was the officiant!). At the end, they proudly made their way back down the aisle to another song by Yellowcard, "Only One".

Cocktail hour and dinner (also at the Ball House & Cottages) were more relaxed, featuring ballads from the couple's favorite bands like American Aquarium and Anberlin mixed with some acoustic rock and indie songs. The wedding party rocked into the reception to "The Middle" by Jimmy Eat World and their first dances featured other great songs from the '90s. With a Goof Booth inside and multiple themed food stations outside, there was plenty for the guests to enjoy before we kicked off the party with more danceable hits from the '80s and '90s. We had a wide range of music here. I'm talking R. Kelly and Outkast to Lil Jon and Usher. Bayside and Fall Out Boy to NSYNC and Kelis. At the end of the night we sent off our bride and groom to "Semi-Charmed Life" by Third Eye Blind. With a party as rocking as the bride and groom themselves, it was truly a night to remember!

"Esther was the DJ of our wedding and she totally rocked! She got everyone on the dance floor and understood all of our different requests for music. She kept up very on time which allowed for much more fun on the dance floor! She made everyone feel so comfortable and even got out on the dance floor to make sure we knew how to wobble correctly. I would definitely recommend Esther for any function!"
