Guest Star: Gettin’ down with Gina and Tyler

Gina Bucciferro and Tyler Neill tied the knot on May 26 at Chicago’s Holy Family Church. This super-sweet couple chose a Stitely solo pianist for their ceremony, creating an atmosphere of intimacy in the beautiful old church. The bridal party processed in to Frank Mills’ “Music Box Dancer” by Frank Mills, while Gina walked down the aisle to “Forever” by Ben Harper. (Such a great song!) They chose a fun, distinctive recessional- “Linus and Lucy” by Vince Guaraldi from Charlie Brown & the Peanuts.

Gina and Tyler’s reception took place at the gorgeous Rooftop Terrace of the Harris Theater in Millennium Park. The couple really enjoys new music, but their parents really like oldies and Motown, so they booked the ultra-versatile 10-piece Stephanie Rogers Band. And SRB totally rocked the joint!

After a brief cocktail hour of solo piano, the bridal party was introduced to a raucous rendition of “Get up Offa That Thing” by James Brown, followed by the parents’ who entered to the sweet sounds of “This Will Be an Everlasting Love” by Natalie Cole. A quintet of bass, drums, keyboard and singers serenaded the guests as they enjoyed their delicious dinners provided by J & L Catering.

The real party kicked-off with Stephanie’s rendition of “We Got Something” by Adaline for Gina & Tyler’s first dance. Then they played an acoustic, “less-romantic” version of Kaci Brown’s “Thank You” for Gina and her father’s special dance, followed by Tyler’s dance with his mother to “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts. Since the couple and their guests wanted a lot of different musical styles Stephanie played a lot of new tunes like “Rolling In The Deep”  and “Party in the USA” peppered with classic hits. Said Steph, “We had an amazing moment in a circle of ‘Last Dance,’ which they loved because of the recent death of Donna Summer and the whole disco/Motown vibe they wanted.”

Kudos to Chrissy from Big City Bride for planning a wonderful evening, A Stem Above for gorgeous flowers and decorations and Robyn Rachel Photography for the fabulous photos! We love working with you guys!
