One of the coolest venues in downtown Raleigh is Vidrio, where Christy and Stephen chose to have their wedding reception on January 26th.
The reception was held on the whole 2ndfloor of the restaurant. As the 75 guests arrived I had a mix of 80’s, rock and classic soul playing in the bar area where I was set up. Guests enjoyed cocktails, passed hors d’oeuvres and the music. After visiting with everyone for a while, Christy and Stephen had their first dance to “Mario Kart Love Song” by Sam Hart. After that Stephen danced with his Mother to “Days Like This” by Van Morrison. LOVE that song!!! I invited everyone to the banquet room at the end of the floor for dinner and desserts. During the buffet dinner I had the same mix of music as cocktails.
After dinner I invited everyone back out to the bar area for some dancing. Before opening the floor to everyone Christy dances with her Brother to “Stand By Me”. I opened the floor to everyone with ”Build Me Up Buttercup” that filled it pretty well with people dancing and singing it. Some 90’s and early 2000’s mixed with some 80’s kept them dancing for the rest of the night. I even played “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” for Christy and her Sister to dance to that was one of the biggest songs of the night.
Thank you Christy and Stephen! I had a blast playing for you and I loved your Gryffindor tie Stephen (I wore Hogwarts cufflinks that night)!!
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.
