Jacob Henry Estate Wedding Joliet

Jacob Henry Estate WeddingA memorable part of the day was the Jacob Henry Estate wedding ceremony.  The beautiful mansion grounds perfectly blended in with the romantic elegance of the estate.  Our performers played a traditional wedding march as Nicole walked down the aisle surrounded by smiles and adoration.  Even though the ceremony was short, it was overflowing with personal words and thoughts from loving friends and family.  Perfect weather held up for the Jacob Henry Estate wedding, in fact there was a slight breeze with partly sunny skies making it a magical day.

After ceremony formalities, friendly staff helped move guests to the Victorian Ballroom. We couldn’t have been more excited with a full stage to perform and having a perfect view of the dance floor!  Felix and Fingers kept the cocktail hour vibe mellow with songs such as Round Midnight by Thelonious Monk. Couples were on the dance floor as soon as Felix and Fingers started performing.  In addition to mingling, everyone enjoyed butler passed hors d’oeuvres while sipping on their drinks.  We thought the smoked salmon pinwheels were DELICIOUS!  Everyone was having a great time!

Full Stage Interactive Show

Jacob Henry Estate WeddingAs guests arrived at their beautifully appointed dinner tables it was clear to see everyone was comfortable and relaxed.  Because this was an afternoon wedding, Felix and Fingers were able to perform a more interactive show.  In fact, lighthearted comedy and a few games were played while guests enjoyed roast tenderloin of beef and chicken piccata.  Our performers played Name That Tune game songs such as Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash and Call Me by Blondie for a fun and competitive audience.  And who would have thought stand up comedy was one of our strengths?  A few jokes and voice impressions were a hit with the crowd!

Now that the cake was cut and the wedding to-do’s were complete, it was time to party until the very end!  Nobody was going to leave the Jacob Henry Estate wedding early with Felix and Fingers dueling piano show.  Our performers quickly transitioned into upbeat and catchy dance tunes such as My Sharona by The Knack and Stayin’ Alive by The Bee Gees. Above all, we couldn’t help but notice the brides maids were having a blast with the Snapchat Geofilter!  About 15 minutes before our show was going to end, Felix and Fingers wrapped up the party with an official last dance song.  It was great to see guests dancing and singing Last Dance by Donna Summer all the way to the parking lot!
