Simple elegance, fine dining, and fun atmosphere are three ways you could describe this GREAT wedding!

Lisa and John’s reception at Florida’s Hyatt Pier 66— the third Hayes family wedding that top South Florida band The John Parker Band had the pleasure of performing for!– was truly a great one.

Daniel of Daniel Lateulade Photography— an awesome guy who stayed the entire night (and then some!) to capture every last image of the evening– shared a few of the shots with us.

We’d love to be a part of YOUR big day too, contact us so that we can help!

Always happy to meet couples planning for their big day, John Parker, of The John Parker Band, participated in the Southern Ocean County & Long Beach Island area’s “Wedding Road Show“.  Having spent many months of every year of his life in L.B.I., and having played many Long Beach Island weddings, John is at home on this beautiful Island. “LBI gets in your blood, & once you’re hooked,  there’s really nowhere else quite like it!” John says.  LBI, long-known as an upscale beach destination, is ever increasing in popularity for weddings.

Organized by the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, this year’s show was graciously hosted by the Boat House, a fun and casual, yet elegant and enchanting, bayside restaurant & wedding venue in Beach Haven.  Drawing hundreds of brides & grooms– all excitedly anticipating their own weddings– the Wedding Road Show is an unparalleled New Jersey Beach Wedding resource. Music, entertainment, venues, food…the best of the best opportunities were ALL there!

Throughout the day, John met with brides, grooms, and their families (his cutie kids & future bandmates Sara and Wes helped when things got busy!!).

Nestled along the remote and pristine haven of silky sand and unspoiled vistas that is Amelia Island,  is the impeccable Ritz Carlton Amelia Island and its breathtaking grounds. A genuine storybook setting for a wedding, which turned into reality when Stephanie & Seth celebrated their wedding ceremony and reception there recently.

Of performing at the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island, John Parker says “Entertaining at Ritz-Carlton hotels is always a flawless experience. Their unparalleled customer service and attention to detail are a perfect fit for my OCD personality (laughs). Everything is just so, and brides and their families can count, unequivocally, on having a stellar and unforgettable wedding celebration.”

Stephanie and Seth’s wedding was no exception. Featured in the Spring 2011 issue of Amelia Island Weddings, their big day was one to celebrate. With Palm Beach’s John Parker Band performing, the Bride and Groom and their guests danced the night away. “I loved the music, and the whole evening was upbeat and memorable,” Mother of the Bride Dianne later commented.

Amelia Island Photographer Holly Allain captured images while “the John Parker Band had everyone dancing” (Amelia Island Weddings p 17)!

After being married at Sacred Heart Church, Jessica and Adrian, along with their family and friends, celebrated at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s Music Hall Foyer. This amazing venue was the perfect backdrop for the Bride and Groom.

Guests enjoyed the music of a pianist (and a surprise dance!) during cocktail hour in the Balcony Foyer before moving to the main hall. With Pittsburgh’s top wedding band and event performer John Parker and The John Parker Band providing awesome entertainment, there was surly no shortage of special moments for Brian Reid of Reid Portraits to capture (a sampling of those photos is below) Jessica and Adrian’s guests danced all night!

A venue this majestic is pretty much all you need for a great wedding. Fun family, friends & great music doesn’t hurt either!

Is YOUR Wedding Gown waterproof? – does your videographer have SCUBA gear handy? – this post Wedding swim by a wedding party after a Florida Wedding in Palm Beach was caught by John Parker on iPhone video.

Florida Wedding Pool Jump
Towards the end of the video – look at the bottom of the screen. The funniest thing is the videographer complete with underwater light & complete scuba gear including mask and fins swimming in the pool. Is that extra? And I wonder, does pool water have an adverse effect on Wedding Gown preservation? 🙂

I have had so many great engagements at the Carnegie Museum Music Hall Foyer – and I always tell my family how nice it is. So imagine my surprise when my favorite people in the whole world came to visit!

My client & the Carnegie staff both have known Sara & Wes from when they were born & were very gracious, & surprised at how big they had gotten – though I’d like to keep them 5 & 6 for a little while longer! 🙂

And my daughter, Sara, wanted to hear her favorite song – “Sara Smile”

Happy days… Here’s to family! – john
