Stephanie & Nick Gallo!

..............Sweeter than the candy table was our bride and groom Stephanie & Nick! Del's Groove had the honor of performing at their reception at the beautiful Mendenhall Inn. The grand ballroom, welcoming and warm was beautifully decorated. The grand staircase is the perfect entrance for welcoming the bridal party. Parents of Stephanie & Nick were so accommodating along with the staff at The Mendenhall. Stephanie's mom & dad, Richard & Teresa and myself had a great chat about their old neighborhood, which is where I live.

.............After the bridal party intros, Nick & Steph danced their first dance to Etta James - At Last, I finally got to sing the first dance! Not to mention, one of my favorites. It took no time to get this reception rockin! I must say, this couple had friends and family that danced their feet off, and, some were dancing in the air! Please enjoy the many photos taken by photographer David Zaveloff, as a matter of fact, we even got one of him hard at work...see if you can spot him! You can visit David at and view his beautiful work.

All the Best to Stephanie & Nick, thank you for having Del's Groove!

Special mention to a beautiful venue for any occasion.

Beke Beau - Make Up Artist

..........In between my "Wedding Singer" entries, I hope to introduce to you some of the wonderfully talented vendors that Del's Groove gets the pleasure to meet and work with. This entry is about Make-Up Artist Beke Beau. Taken from her bio,
Béke is characteristically philosophical about the power of the make-up: "I love what it does when it’s done beautifully—make-up can boost confidence and promote a positive self-image, inspiring a woman to feel more powerful. I get excited about my role in each transformation.”
Béke’s other passion is in doing her part to help preserve the environment through exploring the use of safe, natural and cruelty-free products. She insists that “women can look every bit as glamorous without the chemical preservatives and other ingredients that raise health concerns.”

On November 4th, Beke had her second open house at her Studio located at 76 Rittenhouse Pl, Suite 204 in Ardmore Pa. With bubbly in tow, Bandleader Emanuel Del Pizzo, his lovely wife Teresa and myself stopped by for a meet. It was great to meet Beke, I would be lying to you if I was not thinking to myself, gee, was she thinking my make-up looked like crap? Well, if I ever have a special event, I certainly would book her. Also, a little known fact that Beke told me, she herself is also a singer! A duel Diva herself. It was a pleasure meeting Beke, look forward to next time, please visit her website . Also at the open house were two other lovely ladies &
