A Portland Company Wedding
Karen and Casey had the most amazing Portland wedding at the historic Portland Company Complex on November 22nd. What a wonderful and very popular venue for a a Portland wedding to bring friends and family from all over to share in such a magical day. It was the coldest day in November but the party inside was hot!
Over months of planning from Minnesota on the phone, by email and then meeting in person in Portland, we could imagine the layout and design for Karen and Casey’s ceremony and reception but to see it come together the way that it did was just beyond anything we have ever seen.
Ceremony and Reception Music
They chose a duo to play their ceremony music. For instance, Over The Rainbow, Ode To Joy, Jack Johnson and Stevie Wonder. Next, we covered cocktail and dinner music playing quietly until we kicked off a super fun dance party. Karen and Casey choose Whatever It Is by the Zac Brown Band for their First Dance. Parent dances included The Way You Look Tonight for the Father/Daughter dance and What A Wonderful World for the Mother/Son dance. When the formalities were done, they danced the night away! What a great time!

Here’s what Karen said about Wavelength on Wedding Wire: “Wavelength provided AMAZING music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and reception. Months later, we are still getting compliments from guests of all ages on their performance, professionalism, and playlist. Johnna, the manager, was extremely well organized and made the entire process run smoothly even as we planned from afar. Aside from a few key songs (e.g. first dance, parent dances, ceremony pieces) we gave the band full reign on the playlist and they did not disappoint. The dance floor was packed all night due to a great mix of oldies and current music. They even learned a special request for MKTO’s “Classic.” One complaint we often have of live bands at weddings is that the music is too loud for conversation during cocktails and dinner – despite being in an open warehouse with minimal acoustic insulation Wavelength played at just the right volume all night. THANK YOU!” Read more Wavelength wedding reviews.
