Ryan & Lisa Greif

With a goal in mind of a fun, organized, funny and energetic celebration, Christian couple Ryan and Lisa Greif accomplished all of that and more.  Their wedding reception, held at the Davis Veteran’s Memorial Center was catered by one of our favorites, Cracchiolo’s, out of Woodland.

The reception started with fun music as guests arrived.  Introductions of their parents, and custom introductions of their wedding party followed.  Wedding party introduction music included Vogue, Hot Stuff, If I Knew You Were Coming I’d A Baked A Cake, Let’s Get Physical, Miss America Theme, We Are Family, Zombie Nation, Le Freak, Superman, God Blessed Texas. Secret Agent Man and Unbelievable, before Ryan & Lisa came in to the Black Eyed Peas, “I Gotta Feeling.”


Dinner followed, with tables being sent to the buffet line with songs chosen by Ryan & Lisa and then a fun centerpiece giveaway and a hysterical version of The Shoelywed Game.

Ryan & Lisa’s Love Story was a huge hit, with guest laughing and clapping and crying throughout.   Because their faith plays such a major role in their lives, we were able to bring that in throughout the reception, while keeping everything fun and exciting.

Toasts followed, including one from Jonnalee Henderson, one of the bridesmaids.  This was the second time I’ve had the opportunity to hear Jonnalee give a toast, the first being at the wedding of her sister, Kara, to Jake Spooner last year.  Once again, Jonnalee knocked it out of the park – she’s a dynamo who proves that big things come in small packages.  (And thanks for referring this wedding to us, Jonnalee!)

After a traditional bouquet and garter toss, it was time for the first dance, and they chose Must Be Doing Something Right by Billy Currington, which I edited down for them  from 3:54 to 2:06.

Lisa followed with a dance with her Dad, a custom recording we made of Heartland’s I Loved Her First.  Then it was Ryan’s turn to dance with his mom, to a custom recording we made of “You’re Gonna Be.”

And since the next day was Mother’s Day, we finished with a recording that Lisa made for her mom, of Josh Groban’s You Raise Me Up, and invited all moms and their children to the dance floor.

Dancing rocked the house for the remainder of the evening and before we knew it, it was time for their finale, to Lonestar’s Amazed, which we played with highlight audio clips from their welcoming and reception. 

As Ryan & Lisa headed off on their life together, all their friends and family were gathered in two lines, showering them with bubbles and cheers!
