I was so excited to finally be DJing Reecha and Heath’s wedding at Rose Hill in Nashville, NC on December 8th! They were originally supposed to have their wedding in September, but Hurricane Florence had other plans for the day.
Their ceremony was held inside Nathan Hall and I ran a mic for Reverend Kayelily Middleton and all the music. The room looked gorgeous with floral arrangements over the fireplace. As the 200 guests arrived I had a mix of contemporary love songs playing. When the ceremony was about to begin, Kayelily entered and instructed the guests to silence their phones. The Parents entered to “Setembro” by Quincy Jones. The Bridesmaids entered to “A Thousand Years” and Reecha to “Perfect” by Andre Soueid. After a short service that included a blending of the sand with all 5 of their kids, they recessed to “Happy”. Kayelily invited guests to the Manor House next door for cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres. During the cocktail hour I had a mix of rock, R&B and standards playing.
After the room was flipped and pics and video were taken by Southern Love Studios and Morgan Scott Films, planners Jennifer and Nicole from Vision Events invited guests back to Nathan Hall for the reception. I left music playing and went to line the wedding party up. I introduced the Parents, flower girl and ring bearer to ”Can’t Stop The Feeling” and wedding party to “Forever” by Chris Brown. Reecha and Heath came in to the panjabi hit “Kala Chashma”. They danced from one end of the room to the other and then had their 2nddance as husband and wife to “Every Time I Close My Eyes” by Babyface. I love that song!!! Heath danced with his Mother after that to “Unforgettable” and Reecha danced with all 5 kids to “Mama” by Boyz II Men. So sweet!!! Heath welcomed everyone and the youngest son, Braedon, blessed the meal. During dinner I had a mix of rock, reggae and R&B playing. At the end of dinner a guests preformed an Indian love song karaoke that got people dancing.
After dinner we had toasts and a cake cutting with a birthday announcement for Reecha’s daughters 21stbday along with 5 others . Before opening the floor to everyone Braedon, his brother Bryce and a few other boys did a dance routine to “Fortnite Rap Battle” and one of Reecha’s bridesmaids along with 4 other ladies did a dance routine that started with a Celia Cruz song and ended with J. Lo. I mixed into “Suavemente” and a couple India dance songs that filled the floor!! It was so great mixing all different styles of music together and keeping everyone dancing. Reecha’s daughter Chelsea even sang her favorite song “U Got It Bad” by Usher to surprise her!
We ended the night with “Don’t Stop The Party” by Pitbull before a sparkler exit. Thank you so much Reecha, Heath, Nicole, Jennifer and Walter. I had the best time and so glad I was able to play for you!!
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.
