Wedding at La Mirage in Ulster Park, NY – Christopher & Kayla’s Fall Love-Filled Real Wedding

 Wedding at La Mirage in Ulster Park, NY-
Christopher & Kayla’s Fall Love-Filled Real Wedding

Chris & Kayla are a really great couple! Both teachers, I had a strong attraction to them because we both shared a love for teaching and helping children strive to reach their potential. What was even nicer, was that we had met through DJ’ing her cousin’s wedding 2 years prior & it was so nice to be thought of when it was her turn to get married! You can just tell by the way Chris & Kayla look at each other that there is not only so much love between them, but so much love within them.

It was a beautiful & warm fall day during Columbus Day weekend & the foliage was at it’s finest here in the Hudson Valley. With the girls dressed in candy apple red, and red roses all around, it was hard not to feel love for celebration of Chris & Kayla.

Sam and his crew at La Mirage in Ulster Park did a wonderful job with the room and the food that night – everything was simply perfect! They are a great venue to work with!

With the wedding party coming in to “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor, you could tell this wedding was going to be a non-stop party!

We spoke with Chris before the wedding and asked him if he’d like to try & surprise Kayla during their first dance with a small token of love. Chris said he would love to try, because it was VERY hard to surprise Kayla with anything! So for their first dance, we slipped Chris a beautiful white rose, and as they started their first dance as husband & wife, he pulled the white rose out of his jacket pocket for Kayla, and her expression of surprise & then tears in her eyes from being so touched by the gesture was simply priceless! They shared their first dance to the beautiful ballad “There You’ll Be” by Faith Hill.

Kayla then danced with her dad to “Butterfly Kisses”. But what was so nice was that it was the Faith Hill & Jeff Carson version – it was a very unique twist on this classic father-daughter dance song. Click here to hear this version of the song!

Chris then danced with his mom to a true classic by Bobby Helms “My Special Angel.”

For this wedding we shared Chris & Kayla’s love story right before the toasts. There was laughter & tears, and then a lot more laughter. It was so touching to be able to share that story with their guests!

This wedding was the party that just did NOT stop. These guests came ready to party right until the end! There were several points during the reception that the floor was so hopppin’ – that we had to hold on to some of our equipment from the vibrations of the dancing! Now THAT’S some power dancing!!!


Tossing the bouquet to “Man, I Feel Like A Woman” by Shania Twain, and Chris removed & tossed the garter to “Sexyback” by Justin Timberlake – everyone was having such a great time!

Chris & Kayla chose “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)” by James Taylor to cut their cake to. This song was very special to us, because it was the identical song we chose to cut our cake to at our wedding!

Some of the party favorites from the evening were “We Are Family“, “Party Rock Anthem“, “Build Me Up Buttercup“, “Get Down Tonight“, “Jump On It“, “Let’s Go“, “Gangnam Style” and “Shout“.


The last song of the night was “I’ve Had (The Time of My Life)” by Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes and the guests formed a circle around Chris & Kayla, started a kickline and then all came in for a big bride & groom hug – you could see everyone there was truly happy for Kayla & Chris, and so happy to be a part of their celebration of love!

Thank you Chris & Kayla for giving us the opportunity to be the music entertainment for your wedding celebration! We enjoyed every moment with you & love that we still chat even after the wedding! We wish you both a lifetime of good health & happiness. Be each others always…forever!
