Guest Star: Colleen and Jarod’s Summer Spectacular

Colleen Grogan & Jarod Garbe were married on May 21, 2011 with their reception at the La Grange Country Club.  Their wedding was an absolute riot!

Colleen and Jarod knew they had to have The Stitely Orchestra after they played for Erin, Colleen’s sister, at her 2007 wedding. And after hearing Stitely rock out at Colleen & Jarod’s wedding, Frank O’Hare, Jarod’s best man, chose us to play at his wedding on St. Patrick’s Day this past Saturday.

The evening began with Stitely’s classic jazz trio of piano, drums & saxophone, followed by an 8-piece reception band that included singer-trumpet player, Andew Distel. Colleen and Jarod really like oldies and classic rock, Motown, and 80’s hits, as well as a handful of songs from the 90’s & 2000’s. Their special songs and requests definitely reflect their musical tastes:

  • First dance: “You Send Me” by Sam Cooke
  • Father/daughter: “Unforgettable” by Nat King Cole
  • Mother/son: “The Wonder of You” by Elvis Presley
  • Last song: “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey

Other special songs requests included:

  • “Better Together” by Jack Johnson
  • “Buddy Holly” by Weezer
  • “Keep on Loving You” by REO Speedwagon
  • “Footloose” by Kenny Loggins
  • “Nothing Can Change This Love” by Sam Cooke

Together Colleen, Carly (Stitely’s Event Planning Coordinator) and Lindsay Uyeda from the La Grange Country Club planned a fantastic fiesta. Thanks to Lindsay, Jason from Jason Kaczorowski Photography and Diane from Diane Michelle Florals for such a great event!
