Guest Star: Dance ’til you Drop at the Dorner-Combs Wedding

Christine Dorner & Mike Combs married on April 21, 2012 at the beautiful Germania Place in downtown Chicago. We were already familiar with this lovely couple since the Stitely Orchestra played for Mike’s sister’s wedding last August. (Remember Liz and Hank? Liz is Mike’s sister and Christine was her maid of honor. Christine returned the favor; Liz was her maid of honor too!) Christine and Mike also chose the Stitely Orchestra after hearing them at Liz and Hank’s wedding.

After a relaxing cocktail set played by Stitely’s jazz trio, the couple and the bridal party burst onto the scene to the Chicago Bulls Entrance Theme. After a couple of toasts Mike and his mother, Gail, cut a rug to “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” by Stevie Wonder. Christine and Mike danced to “The Best Is Yet to Come” by Frank Sinatra before cutting their cake to the sounds of “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)” by Marvin Gaye.

Then the real party began. Christine tossed her bouquet with abandon to Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” while Mike tossed his garter to the sultry “Stripper Song” by David Rose and his Orchestra.

Christine and Mike like a mix of classic Motown and rock, along with more recent tunes, so throughout the evening Stitely flooded the dance floor with hits like “We Found Love,” “Party Rock Anthem” and “Dynamite.” The night ended with the Ray LaMontagne’s sweet serenade, “You Are the Best Thing.” What a wonderful way to end such a wonderful wedding!

Thank you to Amy and Carolyn at An Event Less Ordinary for their coordination throughout the evening as well as the planning process. Thanks also to Cristina G Photography, Sally O’Brien from Sally Films, Katie at Kenmare Catering and Germania Place. You made this night a smashing success!
