This July, we got the chance to visit one of our favorite Frederick wedding venues to celebrate with Jordan and Christine. This special wedding at Springfield Manor was one of our first forays back into events, and it was delightful — masks and all. 

Springfield Manor is a working winery, distillery, and brewery just outside of Frederick. With its classic stone farmhouse, fields of purple lavender, rustic barn or chic ballroom, and stunning views across the foothills of the Catoctin Mountains, this venue is an idyllic country escape. 

The wedding ceremony took place at the outdoor pergola, with views of the hills in the background. The bridesmaids and groomsmen proceeded to the ceremony site to a piano and cello cover of A Thousand Years by The Piano Guys. Then Christine made her grand entrance to Haley Reinhart’s Can’t Help Falling in Love.

After cocktail hour outside on the patio, the party headed into the classic ballroom for the reception. DJ Ebi made the intros, with the bridal party entering to SexyBack by Justin Timberlake. Then it was time to introduce the newly married couple! 

Jordan and Christine’s first dance was to Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You by Lauryn Hill. Then, Christine split her first dance into two halves, first with her mom, and then with her dad. This was a lovely way to make sure the mother of the bride was included. They danced to Because You Loved Me by Celine Dion.

Jordan then danced with his mom to Sparks by Coldplay, which just goes to show there are no rules when it comes to picking wedding music — just go with what you like! 

After speeches and dinner, it was time for the party! The guest list for the wedding was on the smaller side, and many guests wore masks throughout the evening for safety.

DJ Ebi kept things moving with the bride and groom’s “must play” list, which included tunes like: 

Then there was a surprise — a performance of the dabke, which is a traditional Arab dance with variations performed in Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, and more. The dancers also broke out drums for a live drum circle, giving the dance floor an interactive element.

When the party had ended, Jordan swept Christine into his arms and carried her off under the showers of sparklers. 

We loved visiting Springfield Manor again and celebrating with Jordan and Christine. It was a great way to spend a summer evening, and get back into the swing of weddings.

If you’re scheduling your 2021 wedding, now is the time! We expect it to be a busy wedding season, as 2020 couples have had to reschedule for next year. Reach out today to book your date with Maryland’s DJ!
