We have to say the Oak Lane Wedding was a first for us with setting up and stepping around barnyard animals!  The Oak Lane at Oregon wedding was located in the rural town of Oregon, Illinois.  We couldn’t have asked for better weather.  Large oak trees on the property provided perfect shade for the outdoor ceremony.  Congratulations John and Jessica!

Oak Lane Wedding on the Farm

Since this was a barn type of venue there were farm animals strolling the grounds.  A giant pot bellied pig and a beautiful peacock made their presence known as guests arrived for the ceremony.  In all honesty, this is the first ceremony we have performed at where a pig moved between guests in their seats.  Moreover, try rolling in your piano avoiding peacock poop!  We found down home country fun at every corner with this event.  In addition, the bride and groom exchanged vows under a beautiful white trellis surrounded by 16 acres of country charm.

Oak Lane at Oregon holds title to one of the oldest cattle barns in Ogle County.  This barn was the highlight for many photographic opportunities.  Our performers for the Oak Lane wedding were Jim Gritschke and Mike Scott.  We played a traditional instrumental wedding march as the stunning bride made her entrance.

Baseball Fans and Outdoor Fun

We had to essentially be at two locations at once during the Oak Lane wedding.  Felix and Fingers played upstairs in the barn and since this was an expansive area we needed to cover a lot of space with our show.  Hence, this was an great opportunity to use our wireless speaker system ensuring full musical coverage for every guest in attendance.  The bride and groom were HUGE Chicago Cubs fans.  Guests arrived to every table labeled with a number and it’s corresponding player’s name from the 2016 World Series team.  During cocktail hour, everyone enjoyed outdoor yard games such as giant Jenga, ladder ball and Baggo.  As a matter of fact, all the yard games were built by the brides grandpa!  We played some great background music and everyone was able to keep busy and enjoy their drinks at the same time.

Above all, guests enjoyed a delicious catered Midwestern dinner under warm gold lighting in the cattle barn. Not only did the wedding party enter to I Believe in a Thing Called Love by The Darkness but it was the perfect wedding introduction song as well. John and Jessica assigned friends and family members as hosts and hostesses to help facilitate their dinner.  We played some light dinner music in the background and everything ran smoothly.   After dinner, Jim and Mike made sure the dance floor was packed with great hits like Honky Tonk Badonkadonk by Trace Adkins.

In conclusion, as we were wrapping up our show the mother of the bride gathered everyone outside to play a final game.  This game had to do with how the bride and groom grew up.  She got everyone involved (including us) in singing a song that she came up with.  Everyone had a great time and it was the perfect song game to close out a fun wedding!
