LIVE from the beautiful Langdon Farms…

15 Sep

After our first meeting with our DJ we were excited to come up with a clever formal introduction for our wedding party. Shawn had given us a couple of examples but we wanted to definitely do something original. After a few days we came up with something perfect that evolved into something MORE perfect.

So for those of you who don’t know…my principal is also a radio announcer on a local sports talk radio station. Can you tell where this is going? We were thinking that we’d have him announce each person of our bridal party as a basketball player, giving stats, etc. as they walked out. This all turned into a “Game Show” type of feel that we fell in love with! He came to our house with the DJ one afternoon (ps this was totally a secret from EVERYONE except the four of us) to record this stuff. After the DJ heard his voice and his words…he insisted on doing it LIVE because it would be so much better. I totally agree! Let me not forget that I sent my principal 4-5 facts about each person…he’s NEVER met any of them…and he put this together ON HIS OWN in less than an hour. We are forever grateful for this memory he helped us make. The bridal party was so surprised and they all laughed and most importantly…DIDN’T KILL US! So yes, you’ll see that some of the words are offense but since they were our nearest and dearest they thought it was hilarious too!

LIVE FROM BEAUTIFUL LANGDON FARMS…ITʼS TIME FOR MEET
THE WEDDING PARTY…
LETʼS START WITH COUPLE #6…THE GROOMSMAN
GRADUATED FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MONTANA WITH A
HISTORY DEGREE…WHICH DOES HIM ABSOLUTELY NO GOOD
TODAY AS A PROFESSIONAL D-J, BUT HE CAN GIVE YOU A
BEAT ON EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OIL AND
VINEGAR…
HEʼS ESCORTING A BRIDESMAID FROM OREGON STATE WHO
SPENT LOTS OF TIME SEARCHING FOR A DRESS, BUT YOU
WONʼT FIND SEARCHING FOR A POT OF GOLD– SHE HATES
NEIL YOUNG. BUT SHE DOES LOVE RED CHAIR BEER AND
RUNNING…THOUGH NOT NECESSARILY IN THAT ORDER.
PLEASE WELCOME DREW AND LISA!
OUR NEXT GROOMSMAN IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY MATRIX
AUTOMOTIVE, FOR ALL OF THE GERMAN CAR DRIVERS. YES,
HE CAN TALK ALL ABOUT YOUR CLUTCH, BUT YOU BETTER
CLUTCH HIM IF YOU TALK ABOUT BLOOD OR MEDICAL
PROBLEMS.
AND IF HE TALKS TO HIS COUNTERPART RIGHT NOW, HEʼD
HEAR A CRAZY SOUTHERN ACCENT. SHE MADE IT HERE ALL
THE WAY FROM GEORGIA, BUT WAS ONCE LEFT BEHIND AT
ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY ON A SCHOOL FIELD TRIP.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, JUSTIN AND CHRISTIE!
NEXT UP IS THE MAN WITH THE NICKNAME ALL US GUYS WISH
WE HAD…THE FASTEST FAT MAN EVER. KNOWN BY MANY AS
FATTY FIRE INSPECTOR, THIS EAGLE SCOUT ALSO KNOWS
HOW TO SWING THE SCISSORS AS AN AMATEUR BARBER.
YES, HE MAY NOT LIKE HIS HAIR TOO TALL, BUT THEREʼS
NOTHING SHORT ABOUT WHO HEʼS CUTTING DOWN THE AISLE
WITH. THIS BRIDESMAID IS MORE THAN SIX FEET OF SMOOTH
AND STUNNING. HOWʼS THE WEATHER UP THERE? SHEʼD
KNOW…SHE ONCE JUMPED OUT OF A PLANE! SHEʼS ALSO
THE MOTHER OF THE TWIN FLOWERGIRLS WHO EARLIER
MELTED OUR HEARTS…
WELCOME DOWN THE AISLE, DAN AND PATRICIA!
OUR NEXT COUPLE STARTS WITH A MAN WHO SOME THINK
MAY BE A FISH IN A HUMAN BODY. PERHAPS A MIX UP IN HIS
CONVERSION FROM GILLS TO LUNGS EXPLAINS WHY HIS
NOSE BENDS SLIGHTLY TO THE LEFT. THIS ITALIAN ROOFING
GURU USED TO SWIM THE CLACKAMAS RIVER FOR FUN AND
REFUSES TO EVER “DROP THE BATON”…
WELL, HE BETTER NOT DROP THE ARM OF THE BRIDESMAID
NEXT TO HIM…ITʼS ACTUALLY HIS WIFE! SHEʼS A REAL
ESTATE APPRAISER AND TOGETHER THEYʼVE MADE A HAPPY
HOME FOR TWO LOVING BOYS. I WONDER IF THOSE BOYS
KNOW THEIR MOM ONCE FELL OUT OF A MOVING CAR DRIVEN
BY THEIR GRANDMA…
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TONY AND JEANNA!
UP NEXT IS THE MAN WHO IS NOT ONLY EXACTLY SIX YEARS
AND ELEVEN MONTHS YOUNGER THAN HIS BROTHER, THE
GROOM…HE ALSO CAN CALCULATE EXACTLY HOW MUCH
ELECTRICITY IT COSTS TO CHARGE HIS PHONE AT HOME
VERSUS WORK. WILL HE EVER FIND A CURE FOR HIS PENNYPINCHING
WAYS?
WELL IF THERE WAS A CURE, THIS BRIDESMAID COULD FIND
IT RIGHT IN NATURE. SHEʼS A NATUROPATHIC DOCTOR,
MOTHER OF TWO-YEAR-OLD WESTON AND NEW BABY EISLEY,
AND MARRIED A GUY MEGHAN TOLD HER TO NEVER GO OUT
WITH…
LETʼS MEET ERIC AND DELLA …
FINALLY, THE BEST MAN IS STARTING THIS WEDDING AS A 5-
FOOT-8 POWER FORWARD, WHICH LEAVES HIM EXACTLY ONE
FOOT SHORT OF MEASURING UP TO HIS BASKETBALL IDOL,
KURT RAMBIS. ORIGINALLY FROM SOUTH DAKOTA, HEʼS
AFRAID TO GROW OLD AND UNHIP, AND IS THE CONNOISSEUR
OF ALL THINGS SWELL…
SPEAKING OF ALL THINGS SWELL, CHECK OUT THE MAID OF
HONOR AND EVERYTHING SHE LOVES IN ADDITION TO HER
BEST FRIEND MEGHAN. SHEʼS A MASTER PHOTOGRAPHER
WHO SPENDS LOTS OF HER TIME TRYING TO SHOOT HER
FAVORITE FELINE PHOTO…SHE WAS EVEN THE CATʼS MEOW
WHEN SHE SAVED SOMEONEʼS LIFE PERFORMING THE
HEIMLICH MANEUVER…
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, ROUNDING OUT OUR WEDDING
PARTY, BEST MAN NICK AND MAID-OF-HONOR HEIDI!
