Summer and Paxton’s ceremony and reception took place at the historic venue The Sutherland in Wake Forest, NC, just outside Raleigh. The day began with us providing the mics and music for the ceremony, which was able to be held outside! The weather was amazing once the rain cleared for them. The guests then made their way to the other side of the historic home for cocktails.
After about an hour, I did the bridal party introductions and brought everyone in to “Bring Em Out” by TI. The guests went nuts as Summer and Paxton came in last and headed to the center of the dance floor for their first dance to “Between the Raindrops” by Lifehouse. That was a great song, and my first time playing it.
Next Summer and her father danced to the classic “My Girl” by The Temptations and Paxton and his mother danced to “Moon River”, another classic track. Summer’s father welcomed everyone and blessed the food and the buffet opened. As always, Rocky Top Catering did a fantastic job. As dinner wrapped up, the couple cut the beautiful cake by Ashley Cakes. Finally the dance floor opened and my folks didn’t disappoint! Oh, I forgot to mention that half of Wilson was there, including my mom and dad! The groom’s parents are friends with my parents! What a party! I even got out there and rocked with my mom for a little bit to “24K Magic” by Bruno Mars! Amazing reception! Shout out to Bowtie Collaborative for grabbing a shot of my mom and dad dancing…it’s the best.
