It’s a rare occasion when the weather, venue and guests all seem to work together to create an atmosphere that you can almost reach out and touch. David and Kristin’s wedding was one of these occasions. The weather was in the 70s, not a cloud in the sky and just enough wind to keep the bugs away. We set up in property’s bank barn, a style that is common in both Maryland and Virginia and consists of a two story building where the top level is access by a earthen ramp originally used for storage of wagons and tractors. This particular example had one of the lofts converted into a seating area with a balcony overlooking the rest of the venue.
One of the main reasons to have a live band is the energy that is created when the guests are on the dance floor and the band begins to react. We feed off the crowds entry and they do the same. Eventually, both sides work themselves into a frenzy and the outcome is the Pièce de résistance of what a live band can do.
Thanks again to David & Kristin for having us this weekend.
