Spectacular tropical views greeted guests as they arrived at the beautiful beach side Ocean Manor Resort in Ft. Lauderdale Friday. Upon entering the hotel guests were escorted to the eleventh floor penthouse for the ceremony. Exquisite floral decorations covering the room leading the way to the beautifully decorated alter. Erin and Reid could not have envisioned a more perfect setting for their ceremony to take place.
Upon MB Entertainments arrival, Mike was greeted with an unexpected surprise: a noise ordinance no one had been informed of. This slight set back was overcome and although speakers were heard at low volumes the ceremony went off went out a hitch! Following the ceremony guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in the penthouse while MB Entertainment and Ocean Manor set up by the pool for the reception.

The noise ordinance becoming a slight larger problem during the reception. MB Entertainment was told to only set up one speaker, which was barely heard by the white noise coming from the pool side speakers to block sound to surrounding buildings. Our Amazing Wedding DJ Mike using the ordinance to their advantage setting the mood with a lighter tone to the music. Erin and Reid had also hired Bobby Vegas of MB Entertainment to sing classical melodies during the reception that were barely heard as the noise level was to be kept almost to a whisper.
The low music was unable to stop this crowd from having a blast. The reception began and the wedding party was introduced. Guests stood to greet the newlyweds following the wedding party and parents entrance. The celebration kicking off with the first dance followed by the father daughter and mother son dances.
