Accidentally In Love!

It was a magical night at Circa on Seventh in Kenosha when Courtney & Ivan tied the knot and celebrated with family and friends!  Not only were we thrilled to provide music and entertainment, but it was honor to officiate their ceremony as well!  Our Thursday evening rehearsal went very smoothly, and we had no doubt their service and reception would turn out wonderfully on Saturday.  Courtney & Ivan met in grade school, started dating in high school, and have been together ever since!  Katie and the entire event team at Circa on Seventh did an amazing job preparing the space for dinner after the ceremony concluded.  We kicked things off with a fun grand march before cake cutting, speeches, and toasts.  As always, Kaycee, Nick and the culinary team prepared a fantastic dinner!  We were especially excited for our bride and groom’s choreographed first dance – what an unforgettable moment!  Big thanks to the entire crew at Circa on Seventh and everyone who came out to give their best wishes to the new Mr. & Mrs. G.!  Congratulations!
