Felix and Fingers drove through acres of Iowa grapes and golden corn to perform at the Cedar Ridge Winery and Distillery. If you are searching for an amazing venue in Iowa, this vineyard will indeed be the perfect backdrop for your special day. Congratulations Jason and Emily!
Cedar Ridge Winery Wedding Swisher Iowa
Felix and Fingers are no strangers to the Cedar Ridge Winery and Distillery. We love being greeted by first name and enjoy the warm hospitality of this venue. Our performers for the Cedar Ridge Winery wedding were Mike Potts and Greg Percifield. To be honest, these two guys are a super duo. Not only will they engage the crowd in an amazing interactive piano show, but they will have your guests singing and dancing all night long!

To start with, the bride and groom held their ceremony outdoors. Guests had amazing views of what felt like Napa Valley surrounded by lush grapevines and rolling hills. We played a traditional wedding march as Emily walked down the aisle. She looked stunning. After the bride and groom exchanged vows, everyone headed indoors to enjoy award winning wines and internationally recognized spirits during cocktail hour. Felix and Fingers used uplights to decorate our setup, and Cedar Ridge Winery generously provided the AV equipment. Guests enjoyed wine and hors d’oeuvres as we played a variety of light background jazz music.
Felix and Fingers know weddings can be stressful and couples often run out of time. This wasn’t the case at the Cedar Ridge Winery wedding as Jason and Emily made their friends and family a priority. During dinner, the bride and groom walked around and spoke to each and every one of their guests. It was so much fun watching the bride and groom laugh and smile with their guests.
A professional winery staff made sure everyone enjoyed their Beef Wellington with seasoned mashed potatoes as we played background songs such as L-O-V-E by Joss Stone. In addition to a fabulous meal, Emily and Jason chose a non-traditional wedding cake surprise…it was made of ice cream! We didn’t actually get to try it, but it looked amazing!
Throughout the entire reception you could hear guests commenting on how they loved our show. There was no shortage of song requests and our performers worked hard making sure everyone heard their song. For one thing, we couldn’t be happier this awesome crowd got into our sing along part of the show, in particular With or Without You by U2 and Wonderwall by Oasis. They sang their hearts out! If you ever want to pack a dance floor, start the party out with Baby Got Back by Sir-Mix-Alot. We had a blast seeing all the great moves this fun loving audience brought to the floor!
In conclusion, we would like to thank the Cedar Ridge Winery staff for helping us make this wedding happen. Everyone had a great time and we received tons of compliments on our show! It’s always nice to leave with a few bottles of fine wine from this vineyard. Above all, on our way back to Chicago we stopped at the Largest Truck Stop in the world. It was tons of fun browsing all their products. Who knew balloon helicopters could be so much fun?
