Stefan and Daniel chose the Hotel Northampton in Northampton, MA to celebrate their special day.
This event was actually my first LGBT wedding, and I was really excited to finally be a part of this new shift in cultural acceptance, where everyone is seen as equal in regards to making a decision on who they could marry, whether that person is male or female.
Coming from a Jewish background, I actually opened the reception with their entrance into the ballroom, their first dance, and then asked everyone to join Stefan’ and Daniel in a Hora Dance as a celebratory opener to their special day
Among having several toastmasters throughout the dinner portion of the reception, the wedding couple and their guests danced throughout the night to many selections from the 70’s – today, and sang along with renditions of Neil Diamond’s” Sweet Caroline”, and Billy Joel’s “Piano Man”
As a special moment, Daniel was staged just outside the ballroom and on cue, entered the ballroom with microphone in hand, entertaining the guests to a lip sync version of Celine Dion’s “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now.”
Stefan and Daniel’s wedding will always be treasured as both my first LGBT event and a celebration of two very special people.
