Kylie and Matthew had both ceremony and reception at The Mayton Inn in downtown Cary NC on April 13th and I was thrilled to supply music for both.
The ceremony was held on the back patio under a tent just in case of rain. As the 100 guests arrived I had a mix of light classical music playing. The alter looked beautiful with floral arrangements by Tre Bella! When the ceremony was about to begin, guests took their seats and I found Reverend Barbara Lodge to attach her mic. The Parents and Groomsmen entered to “Jesu, Joy Of Man’s Desiring” and Bridesmaids to “Air On A G String”. Kylie and her Father came down the aisle to “Canon In D”. After a wonderful service by Barbara, they recessed to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”. Barbara invited guests inside for the cocktail hour with help from planner extraordinaire Sally Oakley.
During the cocktail hour inside I had a mix of beach music, classic soul, and soft rock playing. After pics were taken by Jason from Veritas Digital Photography the guests found their seats and it was time for the wedding party introductions. I acknowledge the Grandmother and Parents, then introduced the wedding party to “We Are Family”. Kylie and Matt were introduced to “You Make My Dreams Come True”. They came into loud applause and took their seats at the head table. The food stations opened shortly and I went right back to music during dinner.
After dinner we had the toasts and Once In A Blue Moon cake cutting to “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)”. The cake was delicious!! Then, we all sang Happy Birthday to Kylie’s 92-year-old Grandmother!! After the cake cutting and after Kylie cleaned all the cake off her face (thanks to Matt.. LOL), they had their first dance to “This Magic Moment”. The parent’s dances followed to “Stand By Me” and “How Sweet It is”. I opened the floor to everyone with some Beach music and Top 40 that had young and old dancing for the next couple of hours.
We ended the night with the last dance to “Save The Last Dance For Me” and a sparkler exit.
Thank you so much, Kylie, Matt, and Sally!! I had the best time!!!

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.
