Van Halen Wedding VideoQuestion: Can a Van Halen song work as a wedding highlight reel?
Answer: I am willing to try.
On July 14, 2018, Collins and I filmed a wedding at The Market at Grelen in Somerset, Virginia. We knew this wedding would be fun as we have filmed this family (or friends of this family) three other times: Brittany, Savanah, and Sarah. Too bad Jen & Josh Adams were married before I knew them as you will see them in all four of these videos.
Anyway, I had several songs in mind for this wedding (and I am using a country song for a different version of their wedding highlights) but when Melanie & Kevin entered the reception, I knew what I had to do - and I accepted the challenge. They came in the big tent to the sound of their friends and family cheering and to the music of "Dance the Night Away" by Van Halen.
It is remarkable to think that this song (which was recorded before most of the attendees were born) is still this popular. Like "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey, or "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang, some party song don't fade away.
It also turns out that Melanie is quite the dancer. And dancing had something to do with them getting together to begin with - or so I heard.
Now check out their video and see what you think: CLICK HERE. I hope you enjoy it as much as the wedding couple does. CONGRATULATIONS, Melanie and Kevin! It was an honor filming your wedding.
