Nathan and Anne’s reception took place last weekend in the NC mountains in Asheville at the historic Biltmore Forest Country Club. The weather was a a little iffy, so we had to move me inside, but that didn’t stop this party!
Guests arrived around 6:00 and were able to grab a drink and enjoy traditional music (flute/guitar duo) by The Magills. Around 7:00, I did the introductions to JT’s “Suit and Tie” and when Anne and Nathan finally entered, everyone went nuts! The father of the bride, Dr. Scharf, gave a nice welcome (even saying “back by popular demand is DJ Joe Bunn!”…I did Anne’s sister’s wedding last year in Charlotte at Myers Park). I thought that was really cool of him. Anyway, after the welcome, it was time for the food stations to open up. Everything looked amazing, and once everyone got their fill of great food, it was time for the cake cutting. As soon as the cake was cut, I asked Anne and Nathan to take the floor for their first dance as husband and wife. They chose “Sweet Thing” by Van Morrison. Great song! Next, Anne danced with her dad to “Wildflowers” by Tom Petty, and finally Nathan and his mom danced to Ella Fitzgerald’s “Cheek to Cheek”. After that, no more stop, just a pure dance party! The couple had picked some excellent songs and I did my best to play as many as I could while still sprinkling in some stuff I knew would be big hits. It was rocking all the way up to the departure at 10:00. Shout out to Maura with Honey Darling Events for planning the event and keeping everyone on schedule! I hope to hit the mountains again soon! Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. Rogers!
