The cocktail hour began in Ridgecrest. Guests enjoyed a wide variety of Stroudsmoor hors d’oeuvres – about 35 types in unlimited quantities. They hydrated with premium brands at the bar and enjoyed mingling indoors and under the Ridgecrest Pavilion.
The reception began with introductions of the bridal party and parents, and a grand entrance by Danielle and Michael to a medley of upbeat songs including “Shut-up and Dance”. Welcome Mr. and Mrs. Michael and Danielle Incontrera – announced DJ Paris – and the crowd went wild as the couple took the dance floor for their first dance to “For Once in my Life” by Stevie Wonder.
A welcome was given by the Parents of the Bride, followed by heartwarming toasts from the Maid and Matron of Honor, and Best Man – with a dash of silly laced in. Then dinner was served, seconds were delivered, the cake was cut, and the Bride danced with her dad to “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder (get that they like Stevie?), while the Groom chose “Have I Told you Lately” by Rod Stewart for his mother-son dance.
With photo ops out of the way and everyone stuffed from dinner – the rest of the reception was spent on the dance floor!
The next morning, the couple said goodbye to their guests while enjoying breakfast at the Inn. They left for a honeymoon with the following memory of their wedding day . . .
On November 10, 2020, we wish Danielle and Michael a Happy Second Anniversary and hope they will celebrate many more to come at the Inn.
