The Details

Sharon and Mike were united during a ceremony at Bartram's Garden, a historic garden in Philadelphia on the Schuykill River. There was a reception/party afterwards featuring delicious food, a great band, dancing, drinking, exploring the garden, photo booth pictures, and general merriment!

I am working on updating this site as a record of that AMAZING day! Please send us any good pictures you took, through email or facebook or whatever! I'll let everyone know when I get it done!


The Music!

Our ceremony musician was our friend, Joshua Marcus, whose albums are great and can be purchased from his website.

We entered to "The Book of Love" by The Magnetic Fields.

During the ring warming ceremony, Joshua played "Who Knows Where The Times Goes" by Sandy Denny, followed by "I Haven't Seen This Day Before" by The Innocence Mission.

He finished with "In The Aeroplane Over the Sea" by Neutral Milk Hotel, one of our favorite songs, ever.

We will be forever grateful to Joshua for his playing! He did a fantastic job.

We also hired a local band to play for a while during the reception.  Everyone really seemed to enjoy The West Philadelphia Orchestra! They are an Eastern European style brass band and they are very fun to dance to!

During dinner, we heard a soul and R&B mix made especially for us by our brilliant, music-loving friend Owen Riordan!  Mike and Sharon also made the mixes that played before the ceremony and in-between other things.  We recommend the MyWeddingDJ app for iPhone, which was helpful.

Craig Wasko was the default DJ for our too-short, but super fun, 80's dance party, with technical help from Nick Lally, and our P.A. was graciously loaned to us by Gina and Jason at our favorite local arts venue, The Rotunda.
