Mira Vista Golf Club was all aglow at Nora and Chad’s reception. And, not just with the soft uplighting, the beautifully lit cake, the dance lighting and the gobo over the dance floor – but with a crowd of fun guests who were there for one purpose: To have a great time and celebrate with the newlyweds. Often times I’ll start mixing in some fun music towards the end of dinner, and this group was on the dance floor in a heart beat. We postponed the parent dances for a bit, so the guests could get going and have some fun for a bit.

I love this photo of Nora’s parents, Starley and Barbara.
Another great photo of Nora and Chad. Looks like fun to me!
Happy Couple. Happy DJ.
