The 1927 Lake Lure Inn and Spa Wedding Venue

I was so honored to DJ Sarah and Zach’s wedding at The 1927 Lake Lure Inn and Spa in the mountains!!! Zach is the 4th family member whose wedding I have DJd. This venue has one of the most beautiful views I have played at.

The First Dance

Their ceremony was held across the lake and guests walked over or took a trolley. After the ceremony, they came back over to The Inn for the cocktail hour and reception. As guests arrived I had a mix of soft rock and classic soul playing. I had so many guests come up and say “hey, weren’t you the DJ at…” LOL. Yup, that was me, I’m the family’s personal DJ!! After pics & videos were taken by Chelsea lane Photography and Dallis Covey, planner Mandy from An English Flower Cottage told me they were ready for intros. I introduced only Sarah and Zach to Redbone’s “Come And Get My Love” and they had their first dance to “This Years Love” by David Gray. The view of them dancing alone with the lake and mountains in the background was so romantic!!

The Blessing & Cake Cutting

I invited the guests into the dining room for dinner and Sarah’s Grandfather blessed the meal. During dinner, I had a mix of indie rock, classic soul, and standards playing. After dinner, we had the toast inside the dining room and cake cutting in the lobby of the hotel to “How Sweet It Is”. While the staff finished cutting the cake I invited guests to the porch where I was set up for the parent’s dances.

The Dancing

After everyone was on the porch, Sarah danced with her Father to “She’s Got A Way” by Billy Joel. Zach escorted his Mother to the floor for their dance to “God Only Knows” by The Beach Boys before I opened the floor to everyone. For the next two hours, guests danced to Motown, top 40, lots of early 2000’s hits, and some hip-hop. Since this is where they filmed Dirty Dancing, I ended the night with “(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life”. But, they weren’t ready to leave yet and kept screaming ONE MORE SONG!! So, I ended with “Take Me Home, Country Roads” before the sparkler exit.

Thank you, Sarah, Zach, and Mandy for everything! It was so great to see all the cousins and play for them again!!!


Bunn DJ Company believes DJing is more than just showing up and pressing play. It’s also more than just knowing how to choose songs and mix them together. Being Raleigh area wedding DJs is about creating experiences and atmospheres. That’s what our DJing philosophy boils down to. We don’t want to just provide the perfect music. We want to create the perfect day. That’s why we excel in what we do. And this wedding was a perfect example of that. Working with this awesome couple to create the day they envisioned is something we’ll never forget. And it’s a service we provide at all our weddings again and again.
