Amanda & Ryan had one of the most epic rehearsal dinners I’ve had the pleasure of documenting! I wish there was a count of how many bottles of wine and champagne were poured at the historic Antoine’s Restaurant, how many great roasting toasts were delivered, and who won the award for best motion picture in 1982! (that’s an inside one for Ryan:) One of the coolest things about this great celebration, though, was learning that the famous wedding song “Going to the Chapel” was actually sung by some lovely New Orleans ladies back in 1964 and actually knocked off the Beatles from the top spot on the charts! I learned this interesting little tidbit because Ryan’s mom actually surprised them with a performance by the original performing artists, “The Dixie Cups”! It was a great night that I was told went well past the time the band stopped playing and I took leave, but you couldn’t tell the way everyone partied the very next night!
