As we drove up to play for this DeKoven Center wedding, we couldn’t help thinking that this is the perfect place for a fairy-tale wedding. The historic charm and gorgeous grounds seemed to transport us back to a simpler, more romantic time.
DeKoven Center Wedding
This property was at one time Racine College and was built in the early 1850’s. The historic American Gothic buildings give this place an atmosphere that is unmatched by any more modern facility. For your wedding ceremony, you can choose between the charming St. John’s Chapel with a maximum capacity of 200, or one of the many surrounding outdoor areas. This 11 acre lakefront property is resplendent with beautiful gardens and gorgeous trees. For your reception, you have a choice between The Great Hall and The Assembly Hall. Both have gorgeous historic architecture and have capacities of 250 and 125 respectively. Your guests will be more than impressed with this venue. Their commitment to excellence shows in every single detail. Click here for more information about the DeKoven Center.
After dinner, the staff quickly rearranged the tables to create a large dance floor. And then it was time to dance! To begin, we played Better Together by Jack Johnson live for the couple’s first dance. This is a great tune, with a nice beat, that is just perfect for a first dance. As the night went on, the song choices we’re becoming rowdier as was the crowd. We don’t usually have requests for Love Me Like a Reptile by Motorhead. But we play anything and everything so no one left disappointed. ZZ Top also made an appearance with Sharp Dressed Man which brought out some great moves from the groomsmen. Definitely a wild and fun night for all.
