Erika Grogg and Jack Snyder made the trip from their home in New York City and were married on February 21st at the beautiful, historic William Aiken House in downtown Charleston. They were joined by about 100 of their closest friends and family members, with guests coming from all over to join them on their special day. I was able to work with some truly amazing vendors for this weeding.
Amanda Assey Lewis and her assistant, Becky, of Southern Chic Weddings & Events were awesome and took care of everything! They planned a beautiful event and kept the team of vendors informed and coordinated. Priscilla Thomas of Priscilla Thomas Photography took some unbelievable shots…just check them out below! Also, Drew Pond of Dockhouse Digital did an amazing job, as always, capturing every special moment on video. You can even view the trailer from Erika and Jack’s special day here.
After a beautiful ceremony in front of the coy pond and fountain, and one that included their dog, George Bailey, the bride and groom enjoyed some cocktails and hors d’oeuvres along with their friends and family, then everyone then made their way upstairs for an amazing dinner. After dinner, guests braved the chilly weather, with some help from several propane heaters, and found their way to the black and white dance floor under the tent awaiting the grand entrance of our bride and groom. I introduced the new Mr. and Mrs. Jack Snyder, Jr. to the party to “Happiness” by Chris Malinchak. They then had their first dance as husband and wife to “Latch (Acoustic)” by Sam Smith. Jack and his mother then danced to “Your Song” by Elton John.
We then opened the dance floor with “Shake Your Body Down” by Jackson 5. The bride and groom gave me an amazing playlist, and when I say amazing, I mean it! I played about 55 songs in 1 hour and 45 minutes and everyone loved every song. It was everything from old school hip-hop like Paperboy, Notorious B.I.G and LL Cool J, to house and dance music by artists such as Seven Lions, Avicii and Cedric Gervais, to 80’s pop like Whitney Houston and Prince, just to name a few.
It was an unforgettable day with great people and a great party. I am so happy to have been a part of Erika and Jack’s wedding and to have been able to work with them and such a great team of vendors. I can’t wait to DJ their anniversary party when they come back down to Charleston!
We all at Bunn DJ Company wish Erika and Jack the best and a lifetime of happiness!
