History in the Making - A Magical Hampton Wedding at Oceanbleu, Westhampton East End of Long Island - www.EastEndWeddingGuide.com
After dating for eight years, both sides of the family new that Diana and Ryan were a perfect match for each other. Diana and Ryan were wed on a rare cloudy and misty Saturday in August. The weather certainly did not dampen their happy mood. In lieu of a beach ceremony at Oceanbleu, the ceremony was moved to Oceanbleu's tented deck. The deck overlooks the dunes and the Atlantic Ocean. It's an amazing view.
Their wedding had several unique touches that made this wedding day History in the Making. The first special touch was when East End Entertainment's string quartet played Under the Sea from Diana's favorite movie is The Little Mermaid for the recessional. It set the tone for a fabulous evening because many of the guests chuckled when they made the connection with the music.
The next special touch took place during the first dance set. As the guests were moving to the sounds of East End Entertainment's DJ Michael, Ryan secretly moved to behind the dj console to grab his American Flag. As Ryan took his flag to the dance floor and raised it above his head, the chorus of Proud to Be An American was mixed in. This was the signal to his groomsmen that they were now free to drink the rest of the evening. It was evident Ryan and his groomsmen have a strong bond of friendship.
At a wedding it is always nice to see and hear one of the guests perform. The next three performances made this wedding one of a kind. After the first dance set concluded, it was time to toasts the newlyweds. The first toast was given by the maid of honor and matron of honor. At first, it appeared like any other toast but when the beat kicked in, they rapped to the instrumental track of the theme to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. At one point, as they were rapping about Diana and Ryan's relationship, the entire sun-glassed, bridal party came on the dance floor as backup dancers.
The festive mood continued through the second dance set and dinner. During this time, the groom's younger sister, elegantly sang a song, dedicating it to her new sister-in-law and brother. It was beautiful moment. During the tail end of dinner it was time for the father of the bride and his crew to spring to into action. As most people know almost anything is possible in the Hamptons. Although he wasn't able to get one of her daughter favorite country to sing at the wedding, he had a dynamic secret plan. For the finale, the Diana's father dressed up as King Triton, and three others were dressed up as crustaceans, from the Little Mermaid. The expression on Diana's face was priceless. King Triton and the crustaceans along with all the guests sang to the song, Kiss the Girl, "Sha lalalala, Lalalala Go on and kiss that girl".
Everyone danced the final two hours of the reception and then were treated to an after party bon-fire on the beach. What a wedding!!! Many years of happiness to Diana and Ryan.
