What a wonderful time I had DJing Krystal & Paul’s wedding at MacGregor Downs with her 3 beautiful daughters! They are all so nice and had the most touching wedding on June 28th.
The ceremony was held in the right side ballroom that houses a beautiful fireplace. Rabbi Edery officiated the ceremony on the opposite wall from the fireplace. I provided a mic for him, two readers and all the music. The Bridesmaids entered to “Watermark” by Enya and Krystal to “A Thousand Years” by The Piano Guys. After the service they recessed to “No One” by Alicia Keys. While the staff flipped the room for the cocktail hour, I invited guests outside to the lake for a group pic by photographer Kristen from Captivated Photography.
After pics were done, the 60 guests came back inside to get away from the heat and enjoy cocktails. I had a mix of standards, Disney songs (for Krystal’s daughters) and soft rock playing. After the cocktail hour we invited guests to the dining room down the hall for dinner and dancing.
I introduced the parents and wedding party to “We Are Family” (get it??). Krystal, Paul and 3 daughters were announced as “The Fab 5”! I Love it!! They came in and had their first dance to “It’s Your Love” by Tim McGraw. They welcomed everyone and thanked everyone for coming. A blessing of the wine and bread followed and the salads and entrees came out. Dinner music was the same as cocktails.
After dinner I opened the floor with some oldies and top 40 that soon filled it for about 45 minutes. We took a break for the toasts, cake cutting and then the parents dances. Krystal and her Father danced to “Daddy, You’re My Hero” first. Paul and his Mother’s dance was next to “First Lady In My Life”. Both were so sweet!! I had an anniversary dance to “The Way You Look Tonight” with Paul’s Parents winning at 56 years married. Wow!! I opened the floor to everyone again and it stayed filled until the end of the night and the last dance to “Home Sweet Home” by Motley Crue.
Thank you so much Krystal, Paul, Ava, Ella & Olivia! I am so happy for all of you!!

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.
