Bands are a common theme for us at weddings this year. We’ve seen a lot of them and it always brings a different dynamic to a wedding party than a DJ does. It can also be lots of fun to shoot when there’s a collective of musicians. Saturday nights wedding was no exception.
Grant + Nicole had hired Chess Club to play at their wedding and during the sound check everyone around just kind of stopped and listened. The sounds coming from the tent were out of this world. Now I don’t know the band, didn’t talk to them at all nor am I getting a cut on any booking they may have in the future but if you’re considering a band for your wedding…you’ve gotta book these guys. The hair literally stood up on the back of my neck during a few songs. Willie Nelson, Adele, Cee Lo…its all there and its all funky. The dance floor was full all night long and even the slow songs brought a crowd to the floor.
Luckily, Chess Club took a break between sets, we hunted down Grant and Nicole one last time, for one last shot and all they had to do was hold still for about 10 seconds. Sounds easy until you consider that it’s 11.30 at night and the bottles of wine are nearing the end and you’ve been partying for hours. Should be simple…just stand there…REALLY still until I come back and get you.
