A Solid Dose of Awesome
If I had to describe our wedding in two words, I'd pick crazy and awesome. If I had to describe Cara and her band in two words I'd just say crazy awesome. Months before the rings were exchanged and I publically smooched a beautiful woman in a white dress, Cara was working with us to make it easy. She was proactive with her communication, and was always prompt in her responses. There were no questions asked or extra fees charged for any of our custom requested songs. Honestly, I couldn't have asked for an easier person to work with. Now, while she is darn good getting everything together for the big day, it doesn't even begin to compare to how well she and the band performed. In the few weeks since our wedding we've talked to a few of our guests. Without fail, they've all mentioned two things: the food (which was copious and delicious) and the band. They were just this magical piece of the wedding puzzle that placed itself perfectly. Our first taste of their talent was from the pianist who played the ceremony. While guests were being seated she played some lovely instrumental versions of some contemporary pieces we requested. These included Justin Timberlake's Mirrors and the theme to Jurassic Park. (No judging! It was to make sure I remembered to smile and breathe.) She also was absolutely flawless playing the classics we requested. My favorite was Canon in D during the bride's enterance. It was beautiful. After the ceremony, they ran the show. They began by introducing the Wedding Party to a top-notch rendition of "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough', and encored with a flawless version of "Happy" for our first dance. During dinner they played background music which added to the atmosphere yet still allowed for casual dining conversation. Then, after all the food and speeches they kept on playing some of the best live music we could've asked for. I think my favorite moment with her was during our last song of the night. It was a low key song: "Shout", by Otis Day and the Knights. My new wife and I were dancing surrounded by all of our friends and family. The next thing I know, my wife and I are running around a circle of our friends and family high-fiving all the cheering people. We wouldn't have made it around to everyone, but they stretched that sucker out until we had made a trip around that circle of smiling faces! I know it's a memory that will always make us smile. That's it though. That's the level of thoughtfulness you'll get from Cara Samantha. It really is unreal, and I can't recommend her enough. The hardest part about working with someone like Cara, is that at the end of the day you have too many wonderful memories, and if you're like me you want to share them all. I mean I could, but I think you get the gist. I guess to put it succinctly, Cara and her band were a solid dose of awesome on our crazy day. P.S. Tell your guitarist everyone mentions how awesome he was, and loved his outfit.
