Jenna & Tyler’s wedding is not one I will easily forget. From the beautiful Merrimon Wynne House to the gorgeous floral arrangements from Meristem Floral. The wedding was perfectly planned by C and D Events, with Catherine leading it all. She did such an amazing job!

I had the pleasure of being the DJ for the ceremony and their reception so I got to see it all. The bride and the bridesmaids looked beautiful, with their hair and makeup done by Makeup by Ashley Mooney. The ceremony went off without a hitch and then the cocktail hour began. I played a mixture of music up until the introductions. “I Gotta Feeling” played in the background as I introduced the bridal party before announcing Mr. and Mrs. Cardillo. The happy couple took their first dance to “Alone with Me” by Vance Joy. They really sold it by singing every word to each other. I either cried or it was allergy season in the venue!

After I wiped my eyes, everyone was seated and served dinner by Beau Catering. To say the food was delicious would be an understatement. “That’s Amore” played in the background while the cake was cut, which was provided by the great Ashley Cakes. We enjoyed some toasts by the maid of honor and the best man before the special dances started. The bride and father danced to “My Little Girl” by Tim McGraw. That was followed by the son & mother dance to “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts. Open dance time commenced with 3 hours of pop, 90’s throwbacks, and some of the best all-time sing-along songs. The night ended with a beautiful sparkler exit

Thanks for having me Jenna and Tyler!

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.
