It was an absolutely beautiful day for Melissa and David’s lunch time wedding reception at Oliveto Ristorante & Bar, overlooking the water in Brays Bay Reserve at Rhodes. Melissa and David were actually married earlier in the week on Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsundays and chose to celebrate today with 80 of their family and friends.
Guests arrived and were treated to a selection of antipasto and welcome drinks as the mingled and caught up. A delicious entree was then served before the first of two games were played. This engaged the guests and using a little creativity, I managed to put lots of smiles on the guests faces and generate much laughter.
This was followed by a wonderful main meal before we had some lovely speeches from Best Man, David’s Dad, David and finally Melissa. The cutting of the cake was next and then another game, which once again was a hit with everybody. Guests were then served a tantalising Dessert.
It was now time for David and Melissa’s first dance. Melissa had changed into a ‘bolero’ type gown for the dance and looked absolutely dazzling. Guests danced and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon before it was time for the bouquet toss and the final dance.
David and Melissa are a truly beautiful couple who had been engaged for three years. They organised their whole wedding in around three weeks, so it was a great credit to them that they pulled it off. It was a lovely reception with guests enjoying the afternoon as we celebrated this life long commitment. Melissa and David, thank you for your trust and the great honour and privilege you bestowed on me in allowing me to be your Sydney Wedding DJ and MC for your wedding celebration – may love, laughter and music fill your lives forever.
