After 10 years, it was finally time for Jennifer and Peter to walk down the aisle! I was so thrilled to be their wedding DJ at Brier Creek Country Club on July 14th!
The ceremony was held in the back garden and I was there to run mics and play music. As the 150 guests arrived I had a mix of classical covers of pop songs playing. The wedding party walked down the aisle to the John Legend song “All of Me” covered by violinist Daniel Jang. Jennifer walked down to another Daniel Jang cover, “Perfect”. After a short service by officiant & cousin Patrick Fuller, they recessed to “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” covered by Jade Gibson.
The guests made their way to the clubhouse and Palmer’s Cove for cocktails and appetizers. During the cocktail hour I had a mix of standards, classic soul and soft rock playing. After pics were taken by photographers from In His Image, the guests made their way to the other end of the clubhouse to the large ballroom for dinner and dancing.
I introduced the wedding party to “Levels” by the late Avicii and Jennifer & Pete to “One Foot” by Walk The Moon that he had timed perfectly! They came in to loud applause and had their choreographed first dance to UB40’s cover of “Can’t Help Falling In Love”. They did a great job with it!! After that her Father joined her for their dance to a medley I made of “Have I Told You Lately” and “My Girl”. It was so sweet. Pete escorted his Mother to the floor for their dance to “I Hope You Dance”. Her Father welcomed everyone and blessed the meal before the salads and entrees came out. During dinner I had a mix of 90’s R&B, standards, classic rock and classic soul playing.
After dinner we had some toasts and opened the floor with some beach music, Motown and 80’s that filled it for the next 3 hours!! We paused for the cake cutting to “You’re My Best friend” and a toast by “Uncle Steve”. LOVE that guy!!
We ended the night with “Time Of My Life” from Dirty Dancing and finally “Don’t Stop Believin’” before a sparkler exit from the front of the building. Thank you so much for everything Jennifer, Pete, Doranda & Shannon! That was a blast!!!

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.
