I was thrilled to play Anna & Jeremy’s wedding at The Museum Of Art! They have great taste in music and I was excited to be able to make their wedding playlist dreams come true.
The guests arrived at the museum for the outdoor ceremony and I had a mix of indie rock (mostly picked by Jeremy) playing. The guests found their seats and the ceremony soon started. After a short ceremony that included a reading, the guests made their way inside for the reception. During the cocktail hour I had a mix of indie and classic rock playing with some classic soul mixed in. Guests mingled and enjoyed drinks and the photo booth.
After pics were taken and the cocktail hour ended, I introduced the wedding party and Anna & Jeremy came in for their first dance and parents dances. After that they took their seats for the served salads and entrees. During dinner I continued the cocktail hour mix.
Following dinner we had a few toasts and the cake cutting, then an anniversary dance to “You Send Me” by Sam Cooke. I opened the dance floor with some Motown and top 40 that soon filled it for the next 2 hours. Some 80’s, 90’s, top 40 and oldies for the 120 guests to dance to was also played. I even got to play some indie dance music and see Jeremy’s Mother & Uncle show us their award winning moves to “Orange Blossom Special” by The Stanley Brothers!
This was one of my favorite weddings, and not one I, or the guests, will soon forget!
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. Begin a wedding DJ 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 all our Raleigh Weddings again and again.
