Wow! What a fun night DJing Patty and Alan’s wedding reception at The Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill, NC on June 9th!
Their ceremony was held at the University Presbyterian Church and guests came over to The Carolina Inn after for the cocktail hour and reception. The cocktail hour was held in the front room and I had a mix of standards playing. The wedding party stayed at the church for a short time getting pics taken by Brain Mullins Photography. After pics were done, they came over to the Inn for the reception. The doors to the ballroom opened and guests were invited to their seats by planners from Elle’s Dream Events.
I introduced the wedding party to “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” by Michael Buble and Patty & Alan to “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)”. They had their first dance to ”Your Song” followed by parent’s dances. Patty & her Father danced to “Carolina In My Mind” and Alan & his Mother to “Have I Told You Lately”. Her Father welcomed everyone and Reverend Kate blessed the meal. The appetizers, Salads & entrees came out and I played a mix of standards & classic rock. After dinner we had the toasts and Ashley’s Cake cutting to “How Sweet It Is”.
The Classic Carolina Photo Booth opened and I opened the floor with “Build Me Up Buttercup”. People ran to the dance floor! Not kidding!! That is such a great feeling as a DJ. For the next 1.5 hours the floor stayed packed to Top 40, Motown, 80’s 2000’s and even Hanson (Patty’s favorite group growing up). There was even an appearance by Rameses Jr. that was a surprise to everyone. He stayed around a while and danced with everyone and got lots of pics taken. I ended the night with “Sweet Caroline” and finally “Twist & Shout” by The Beatles before a blue & white pom pom exit down the hallway.
What an absolute amazing wedding reception! Thank you Patty (and her Mother!), Alan & LaShayla. I had the best time!!!
