This was my first time at The Parlour At Manns Chapel in Chapel Hill and I am in love with it’s charm! Anna and Clay had both their ceremony and reception there on September 23rd.
The First Dance
Their ceremony and cocktail hour were both held outside and they had live musicians for those. After pics were taken by Krystal Kast Photography, the 75 guests were invited into the 130 year old chapel for dinner by planner Cheryl-Anne with Kast Events. I introduced just Anna & Clay and they came in for their first dance to “Coming Home” by Leon Bridges. He is one of my favorite artists! Her Father welcomed everyone and Minister John Oliver blessed the Beau Catering meal. During the delicious dinner I had a mix of indie and classic rock, classic soul and some standards playing.
After dinner we had the Cupcake Shoppe Cake cutting to “Love You Madly” by Cake and the Two Roosters Ice cream truck opened outside. I opened the dance floor with some Motown and top 40. Guests danced inside and enjoyed the beautiful weather outside while eating ice cream. For the next 2 hours I played lots of 80’s and 90’s and some current top 40.
We ended the night with a few sing a long songs including “Total Eclipse Of The Heart” and “Sweet Caroline” before a sparkler exit. What a sweet couple and beautiful venue! Thank you Anna, Clay and Cheryl-Anne!
