La Fonda On Main - closed on June 21, 2008
On June 21st, the doors of La Fonda on Main were closed to the general public. Cappy and Susan Lawton were celebrating the wedding of their daughter Avery, to Jamie Moore. Avery and Jamie were such a fun couple to work with. They are total freaks for all things Mariachi! These people know the names of more Mariachi songs than anybody I had ever met.
Avery and Jamie wanted to make sure the music for their reception would be a mix of oldies and American classics that their guests would enjoy, along with some Latin music that would reflect their love and appreciation for the heritage in San Antonio.
The band set up in the patio of La Fonda, and guests started to stream in at 6:30. They swayed and the cha-cha'd as Groove City played great old school Latin music. The couple wanted boleros by Luis Miguel, beautiful old Rancheras, and specifically requested Piel Canela.
Then the couple arrived and had their first dance. Jamie and Avery selected John Hiatt's Have A Little Faith In Me. The band prepared this song as a custom request for their first dance.
At the end of the night, nobody wanted to leave, but rules are rules, and outdoor music has to be done by 11pm. This was a fun party, and the couple was thrilled to have all their family and best friends join them in the celebration.
The daughter of restauranteurs, Avery's decor was mostly edible. Take a look:
