I was so glad that Alexis and Stephen had me for their wedding DJ on July 13that The Rickhouse in Durham, NC! When I first met them in February I knew this was going to be a fun time!!
The ceremony was held at Immaculate Conception Church earlier in the day. The 80 guests had a little bit of a break before heading over to the Rickhouse for the reception. When they started arriving I had a mix of rock, country, standards and classic soul playing. I even had music playing on the back patio that overlooks the old Durham Bulls Stadium. The room looked beautiful with candles everywhere and floral arrangements by Tre Bella.
When Alexis and Stephen were ready for intros, I invited the guests to their seats and lined the wedding party up with help from planner Amanda with A Swanky Affair. They came in to “Can’t Stop The Feeling” and Alexis and Stephen to “Shut Up and Dance”. They took their seats and Stephen welcomed everyone. Her Father blessed the meal and the salads came out before the Rocky Top buffet opened. During dinner was same music mix as cocktails.
After dinner we had the toasts and Nothing Bundt Cakes cutting to “Sugar” by Maroon 5. The formal dances followed. For their first dance they chose the brand newacoustic version of ”Speechless” by Dan + Shay. It was so sweet!! Alexis and her Father had their dance to “My Little Girl” and Stephen and his Mother to “Humble & Kind”. The mini bundt cake display opened as did the dance floor to some oldies and Top 40 that filled it. I even played a special edit I made of the Bills version of “Shout” for all the guests from Buffalo!! I know photographers Shaun and Danielle from Visual Rituals got some great shots of that.
For the next 2 hours guests danced, enjoyed the s’mores station outside and taco station inside. We ended the night with some sing a longs before the last dances to “Sweet Caroline” and finally “Bye, Bye, Bye” by N’Sync.
Thank you so much for everything Alexis, Stephen and Amanda!!
