September 20th, 2014 was an incredible day for Nighty Nine Entertainment, Canden Schwantes and Manny Arciniega! It was wedding day!
Manny and Canden's wedding ceremony and reception turned Canden's parents backyard into an absolute DIY dreamscape! It was positively beautiful!! Amanda Scott from A Swanky Affair was at the helm steering the days' activities flawlessly!
The arrival and seating music for the ceremony was a jazz fusion mix from Gilberto Gil's The Soul of Brazil" album.
The ceremony was spectacular and yet down to earth. Everyone was seated under a tent with elegant decor placed throughout the seating area. The bridal party arrived accompanied by a friend playing the guitar. Manny is a muscian and approximately half of the guests were also musicians! Canden walked down the isle to another custom song played by a string duo. During the ceremony one of the groomsman and bridesmaids performed a guitar/vocal duo that was breathtaking! The party began once Canden and Manny were presented as husband and wife.
The ceremony was followed by dinner with a special appearance by a local mariachi band!
The toasts featured speeches from the following people: Kelsey McGraw (Maid of Honor), Jay Schwantes (Canden's Father), Sergio Arciniega (Manny's Brother) / Mario Arciniega (Manny's brother).
The cake cutting and special dances followed the toasts and featured music from a vocal strings duo.
The party was a BLAST! Everyone came to rock the dance floor! There was a variety of music which included Texas "two step", salsa, and top 40 dance music!
The weather was perfect, the party was a blast and fun was had by all including our favorite wedding DJ Jim Unger!
Kudos to the following teams for their wonderful performance:
