Square One has performed at Park Tavern in Atlanta several times and ranks it as one of its favorite places to play in the Atlanta area. Its size is perfect for any size wedding, and its proximity to Piedmont park makes it a perfect location for weddings and other private events. For more information about having your wedding or private function at Park Tavern, click here.
One of the more unique venues the Square One Band has performed at has been the Rustix Manor in Woodstock, GA. It’s layout and location is perfect for a large outdoor wedding, and even though it is located in a Woodstock, it has a much more rural feel because of the amount of acreage that belongs to the venue’s owner. In a word (or three), a very cool place! For more information, click here.
One of the more memorable events that occur during the reception, especially for brides, is the Father-Daughter dance. Over the course of the last several years, Sweetwater Junction has been asked for advice on what to pick for this (hopefully) once-in-a-lifetime occurrence.
Here are a couple of things to consider when picking that special song:
1) Tempo: How fast is the song? Unless you want to be doing a jitterbug, you may want to make sure the song is on the slower side. Trust me, I have seen many occassions where the song choice was far to fast, especially if the father of the bride is older.
2) Length: More often than note, dancing for more than four minutes or so may become a little awkward; remember, you will be the focal point for your guests. If you are naturally uncomfortable in the spotlight, you may want to pick a song that is shorter in length.
3) Lyrical Content: Obviously, you want to pick something that is appropriate and defines the kind of relationship you have with your father. With that, I have included a few links that include many choices for a Father-Daughter dance. Good luck in your decision making!
Square One was back in one of its favorite cities this last week, Charleston, SC. Fortunately, the weather behaved for the evening as the wedding was partially indoors and outdoors. The client and their guests were great and seemed to really enjoy the band. Here are some photos from the event.
The band had the pleasure of performing at Cator-Woolford Gardens in their beautiful atrium. This is the third time the band has played there, and the first in the atrium. The bride and groom were great, and so were there guests. Working with Jenny from It Takes Two event planners is always excellent, as well. Pics to come shortly!
The band was on the coast this weekend, and it was a stormy one! Fortunately, the tent did its job and kept the gear and the guests (mostly) dry. Because of the constant change of plans due to the weather, I wasn’t able to focus on getting good pics with my camera, but I took a few with my phone. If it’s true about it being good luck for a couple for it to rain on their wedding day, then this bride and groom should be together for a long time!
The band recently had the pleasure of playing in one of our favorite cities, Charleston, South Carolina. Although it was a typical Summer night in Charleston (hot, humid with the threat of rain), the band as well as those attended had a great time! If you are thinking about getting married in the South, Charleston would be a great place to consider; here is a great listing of Charleston venues to check out.
The band got to stay off the road this last weekend and had a great time playing a beautiful wedding in Atlanta. Great clients, lots of festivities and partying into the night! I was only able to get a few pre-show shots, but figured it would be worth posting them regardless. Enjoy!
Having sat through many, many , many (do you get the picture) speeches by the best man at a wedding, some good and some bad, I thought it would be of use to round up some helpful links to articles that tackle this potentially very stressful experience. I hope they will be useful to you or anyone you know that needs to give a speech as the best man…good luck!!
