27 Miracles is known for their surprise Rose Ceremonies for many different reasons( you never know what the roses are bringing to you) but we always manage to get the surprised party off guard. On the day of Stella and Tom’s wedding that was exactly what we did. Tom from the day that he met Wedding Planner Rosie Moore had said I want to do a special song for Stella and surprise her. Moore said sure we will help you do that. Tom and Stella both like doing Karaoke and when they went out on their first date he sang the song to her called, ” Wonderful Tonight” by Eric Clapton. It was the most romantic gift a groom can give to his beautiful bride on their wedding day. It is not that every groom has to sing, it is whatever the groom deems special for his bride to be on their wedding day whether privately or in public.
Keep the romance going even after the wedding day…if you sang to your bride as you dated…keep on singing….it is not about the keys you can hit…but the words you choose to sing to her …..
Are you a fan of the movie, Dirty Dancing, featuring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey? Well, the terrific tune of the day is a popular song from the movie; “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” was originally sung by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes.
This song describes the feeling of being in love and having a good time. Due to the joyful feeling this song brings, it is a great last dance song choice. Guests can be invited to the dance floor to enjoy this last lively song as well.
Here is the Dirty Dancing scene featuring “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.”
Here is one of 27 Miracles couples using this song as the their final dance for the wedding
For a more upbeat, modern atmosphere, here is another version of the song. It is called “The Time (Dirty Bit)” by the Black Eyed Peas.
Regardless of which version you choose, either the original song popularized by Dirty Dancing or the modern version, “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” will definitely have your guests dancing.
27 Miracles is honored to know and have served many military clients at their weddings. Today is not the only day that we say thank you, but every day. But in honor of Memorial Day, today we will take time to honor those men and women that gave up their family life so that we can be safe.
We salute you soldiers and thank you for your sacrifice.
27 Miracles proudly supports our Military troops that serve our country. Fridays are noted as Red Friday. For the Month of May every Friday 27 Miracles will share the military weddings done in honor of those that serve our country so that we can have the freedom that we have today. Please take a moment to read this story on the meaning of Red Friday:
Last week, while traveling to Chicago on business, I noticed a Marine Sergeant traveling with a folded flag, but did not put two and two together. After we boarded our flight, I turned to the sergeant, who’d been invited to sit in First Class (across from me), and inquired if he was heading home. No, he responded. Heading out, I asked. No, I am escorting a soldier home. Going to pick him up? No. He is with me right now. He was killed in Iraq. I’m taking him home to his family. The realization of what he had been asked to do hit me like a punch to the gut. It was an honor for him. He told me that, although he didn’t know the soldier, he had delivered the news of his passing to the soldier’s family and felt as if he knew them after many conversations in so few days. I turned back to him, extended my hand, and said thank you. Thank you for doing what you do so my family can do what we do.
Upon landing in Chicago the pilot stopped short of the gate and made the following announcement over the intercom. “Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to note that we have had the honor of having Sergeant Steeley of the United States Marine Corps join us on this flight. He is escorting a fallen comrade back home to his family. I ask that you please remain in your seats when we open the forward door to allow Sergeant Steeley to deplane and receive his fellow soldier. We will then turn off the seat belt sign.” Without a sound, all went as requested. I noticed the sergeant saluting the casket as it was brought off the plane, and his
action made me realize that I am proud to be an American.
So here’s a public Thank You to our military Men and Women for what you do so we can live the way we do.Red Fridays. Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing Red every Friday. The reason Americans who support our troops used to be called the “silent majority.” We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record
breaking numbers. We are not organized, boisterous or overbearing. Many Americans, like you, me and our friends, simply want to recognize the vast majority of America supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday – – and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a
deafening message that…every red-blooded American who support our men and women afar, will wear something red. By work of mouth, press, TV – Let’s make the United States on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers. If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, coworkers, friends, and family, it will not be long before the USA is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the once “silent” majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on.
The first thing a soldier say when asked “What can we do to make things better for you?” is, “We need your support and your prayers.” Let’s get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example and wear something red every Friday.
Today’s wedding celebrates Stella and Tom. Tom is Former JR. Vice Commander of the Veteran of Foreign Wars, Retired United States Army.
You get what you pay for. That statement is true especially when it comes to the wedding industry. A great tip in regards to planning your wedding is to hire professionals. Wedding professionals value both their time and yours, providing you with great service catered to your needs.
27 Miracles believes that your wedding day should be everything you dreamed of. That being said, hiring a wedding planner will relieve stress, allowing you to be a guest at your own wedding. Also, there is no need to worry about finding the perfect dj, the photographer that will provide you with amazing photos, and other vendors. Our wedding planners can assist you in finding the vendors that suit your wedding style. Put your mind at ease knowing that you have the best vendors for your wedding.
To give you a visual understanding of why hiring professionals is important, here is a video of a wedding reception gone wrong.
