Andy and Molly’s wedding was an upscale celebration at the Hotel Monaco. With many out of town guests, the couple knew they wanted to have their ceremony and reception in one location. The hotel accommodated all their wishes by providing a large ceremony space, rooftop cocktails, and beautiful ballroom.
The bride and groom envisioned an amazing party and there was no way to do that without a fantastic live band. The couple enlisted the premier John Parker Band to perform all evening long at their reception. Everyone enjoyed nonstop dancing, singing, and popular music!
We love this photo taken of the groom before seeing his bride. The couple chose to do a first look, which is when a bride and groom see each other before the ceremony. They were able to take many photos together with their photographer, Christina Montemurro.
The bride looked glamorous. Her dress was sleeveless with a high neckline, sparkly belt, and full skirt. Her bouquet was an array of gold, white, and yellow blooms. It was exquisitely done by My Garden Floral.
Their ceremony space was so pretty with cream floral arrangements and a white aisle runner. We love the cool design of the carpet too! And the John Parker Band played music during the ceremony.

What a great shot of guests mingling during cocktail hour. A rooftop is certainly the place to be! Guests must have been eager for the reception to start to listen to some awesome music by John Parker Band. They were all set to start the night off with introductions in the ballroom.
The ballroom was decorated tastefully with white flowers and black tablecloths. Votive candles were scattered throughout the room and impressive light fixtures hung from the ceiling. The dance floor was in the middle of the room with John Parker Band all set up. The bride and groom had their first dance to the song “El Camino”.
Bride & Groom Dance: Amos Lee- El Camino
Mother & Son: Grateful Dead- Standing on the Moon
Other Requests: Taylor Swift- Shake it Off, Old Crow Medicine- Wagon Wheel
Guests listened to toasts from the mother of the bride, best man, and maid of honor as the first course was served. Afterwards the groom and his mother danced to “Standing on the Moon”.
The night started off with popular hits to bring everyone out on the dance floor. The band wanted all their guests to have a great time and playing familiar songs is definitely the way to go! The couple had a few songs they requested to be played, including “Wagon Wheel” and “Shake It Off”.
The newlyweds trusted the band to make the right choices of what songs to play. John Parker Band had a few tricks up their sleeves with groovy lighting, energetic band members, and swinging tunes. Take a look at that dance floor! It was packed! We love the angle of this shot, the view of the band and guests having fun.
“What an amazing band! Our wedding was so memorable thanks to John Parker Band. Everyone had a fantastic time. We were so lucky to have you at the wedding!” –Bride and Groom
How about a little guest singing? John Parker offered the mic to guests who wanted to sing along to their favorite songs. We bet everyone loved the performance!
