Falmouth Country Club Navy Wedding
This military wedding just so happens to take place on a golf course, the bride’s family’s golf course, and it is a show-stopper. Abby and John’s gorgeous ceremony and reception took place at the Falmouth Country Club. It has gorgeous greens, dress whites/blues galore and a beautiful bride for the win. It was all kinds of beautiful and a whole lot of fun! It was an honor to work with and play for such a sweet couple. They never stopped smiling and their infectious joy was visible from the moment the ceremony music started!
After their first look photos in Portland, the most beautiful and romantic ceremony on the golf course happened. Abby’s brother walked Flower “Gram”, Great Grammy Harris, down the aisle followed by a lovely bridal party that included many family members and officiated by a close family friend. Paul French played guitar accompanied by Abigail’s friend on cello for the bride processional, Canon in D. This was our first look at a “ring warming” where family members “warm” the rings before the exchange. Truly a beautiful family affair.
Abigail and John wowed guests as the saber team positioned itself in formation just outside the tent entrance to execute the formal Arch of Swords followed by the kiss and introduction as husband and wife leading into the first dance. What a lovely military tradition! We are blown away by these photos. Amazing work, Greta Tucker Photography!
The couple asked us to learn Guava Jelly by Johnny Nash for their first dance which was a funny song that John sang to Abigail when they first met in Hawaii. Sounds a little like Top Gun moment! Guests were invited to join the couple on the dance floor for a mini dance set of Barry White, Whitney Houston and The Contours. The party had officially started! Toasts were delivered on the dance floor, thank you remarks from the happy couple and everyone sang Happy Birthday to Great Grammy and others. The band played What a Wonderful World for a combination father/daughter and mother/son dance. Continuing with the formalities, Abigail and John cut the cake – this would be a large whoopie pie with the sword and we had some fun with them on the bouquet and garter toss. We closed out the night with John’s request for Wagon Wheel for their last dance. The crowd was incredibly fun on the dance floor and we hated to see the celebration end.
We are thrilled to share their wedding photos captured by the amazing Greta Tucker Photography here. Hats off the to the venue designer, Sarah Goodwin from Daisies and Pearls and Broadturn Farm for the incredible florals you’ll see below.
Abigail, John, family and friends, we want to thank you for your service! Aloha!
We are delighted to share Abby’s review posted on The Knot and Wedding Wire: “John and I couldn’t be happier with our experience with Wavelength. They played at our reception under the tent at Falmouth Country Club and every guest we spoke to raved about how talented they were. The energy they brought was something that a DJ simply can’t compete with, yet many guests mentioned that the songs sounded so good that they thought they were listening to the originals! We also deeply appreciate that they learned a few special songs for us. Johnna was fun to work with and extremely receptive and professional. Going into the big day, we were at ease knowing that Wavelength would run the show according to our plan and get the party going ASAP! Paul played guitar at our ceremony and we’re so content that we chose to add that service. He set the tone for our deeply personal ceremony. He was also kind enough to practice and play “Canon in D” with my friend for the bridal processional. I’m confident that there is no better wedding band for couples getting married in Maine. I’m forever a Wavelength fan and will sing their praises to every couple I meet! Thank you!!!”
