If you came across a photo of Jake and Casey in a wedding magazine, you’d probably assume “Oh, those are models. There’s no way that is a real couple.” 

But you’d be wrong. This pair may look like they came straight from central casting, but they’re the real deal. And at their November wedding, Maryland wedding DJ Brian Doane got to help make their day a success. 

This Springfield Manor wedding took full advantage of the stunning fall foliage that Maryland does so well. Tucked into the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, this beautiful vineyard/brewery/distillery is a bucolic gem. And all that beauty was captured in full by the photography and videography team at TLIC

DJ Brian recalls, “[Jake and Casey] had some really awesome song selections for their wedding.” The couples’ parents and grandparents made their entrances to Love Will Turn You Around by Kenny Rogers, which has such a sweet, easy groove. Then the wedding party came down the aisle to Skylar Grey’s ethereal cover of Stand By Me. Finally, Casey made her grand entrance to Joel Sunny’s dreamy version of Dandelions by Ruth B.

The couple said their vows under the venue’s gorgeous minimalist gable-style pergola, with stunning views of the fall foliage beyond. That scenery looks like a Bob Ross painting! 

After the “I do’s” and that first smooch, the couple beat a happy retreat to the classic This Will Be (An Everlasting Love) by Natalie Cole.

Cocktail hour was an outdoor affair, with classic love songs to set the tone. Then the guests moved into the gleaming white reception hall to get the party started. The wedding party intro was a 90s banger—none other than Space Jam by the Quad City DJs. [IT STILL SLAPS.] Then Jake and Casey kept the energy high with their entrance to Higher Love by Kygo and Whitney Houston. “One of my all time favorites,” says DJ Brian. 

The pair hit the floor for their first dance: Erato’s cover of I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me). If you’re not familiar, it’s a must-listen! Next, Jake and his mom danced to Son of A by Dillon Charmichael, followed by Casey and her dad to My Girl by The Temptations. 

The night was a blast. DJ Brian says, “The highlight was definitely the last song of the night, which was First Date by Blink 182. I've never had that as a final song, but it was super fun and got a ton of energy on the dancefloor with their friends and family."

Finally, it was time to say goodbye. The wedding planner ushered the guests outside and handed out bubble guns, while Jake and Casey had a private last-last dance to Angel by Paul Cauthen. Then they headed out into the night in a shower of bubbles.
