There is a little rule of thumb we always pass along to our wedding couples…when the bride has a good time, everybody has a good time. It seems simple enough, but the couple sets the tone for the party and if you want your guests to have a ball, you should plan to do the same. I can think of no better example of this principle in action than Margie & Drew’s wedding. We knew it was going to be a legendary evening when the bride and groom started dancing at sound check… hours before the ceremony began. Once the reception was underway, the guests followed suit and the floor stayed packed all night!
Margie’s thoughts on The Highballs:
“Are there words that could truly express just how much we think of The Highballs!? It was four years ago that I first saw them and at some point in the evening I text Drew and said, “if we ever get married can we PLEASE have this band at our wedding?” Booking them was the very first thing we did in the planning process and on September 24th, 2011 that text came to fruition and we could not have been happier! From word “go” Meredith was such a pleasure to work with and during our consultations whether via phone, email, or face to face, she was incredibly attentive, professional and yet I felt like she was a friend. There was never a doubt in my mind that everything we discussed would be delivered and boy did they ever! If we’ve heard once we’ve heard it a thousand times since that they were by far the most amazing band our guests had ever seen or heard. The dance floor never cleared the entire night and in the days following my knees were killing me due to the fact that I literally bounced from place to place around the tent. Every song was as good as the one before. Hands down THE BEST addition to our day. Already scheming the next big event where we can hire them again!”
