Taryn and MG chose the historic and amazing Merrimon-Wynne House to have their ceremony and reception this past Saturday. They actually got married outside and it couldn’t have been a prettier fall day. The ceremony took place at 4pm and with the sun setting so early, this was a perfect time, not yet even chilly! We provided the audio while Arioso Strings handled the music. They were great as always.
After the ceremony, the guests went inside the original house, while the final touches were put on the Carriage House setup where dinner and dancing were to take place. Around 5:40pm, the guests entered and then introductions were next. The bridal party and newlyweds entered to the Bruno Mars song “24K Magic”. The crowd went wild as Taryn and MG entered and went to the center of the dance floor for their first dance to “From This Moment” by Shania Twain. I’ve been playing this a lot more lately. It must be making a comeback! After the first dance, Taryn and her father danced to “I Loved Her First” by Heartland and then MG and his mom danced to “My Wish” by Rascal Flats. Next up was a welcome from Taryn’s mother and then a blessing from Pastor David (who was also the officiant). They also did the cake cutting before dinner, which I kind of liked! You should have seen the SIX cakes by Hayes Barton Dessertery! Dinner came out next prepared by Donovan’s Dish.
After dinner, it was basically all open dancing for about 2+ hours and this crowd didn’t let me down. They rocked hard! The end of the night was a sparkler departure. What a great wedding! As always, our friends at A Southern Soiree did a great job planning. Looking forward to some great photos from Caroline Lima.

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.
