Daniel and Ben’s wedding took place at the incredible Umstead Hotel in Cary, NC. The day began with cocktails outside the ballroom in the pre-function area. We had some great tunes playing and also our photo booth taking pics!

The First Dance

After the guests were seated, I introduced the wedding party to Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love”. Once Ben and Daniel hit the dance floor, they went into their well choreographed dance to “Come Fly With Me” by the one and only Frank Sinatra. It was the perfect beginning to a great night. Ben’s father welcomed everyone with an amazing speech and toast, the blessing was given, and then dinner was served.

The Dancing

As dinner wrapped, it was time for the cake cutting. I played James Taylor’s “How Sweet It Is” and then several people gave toasts, all of which were great. Next up Ben and Daniel danced with their mothers to “Stand by Me”. About 2/3 through the song, they switched and danced with their new mothers in law! Super sweet! As the final notes of that song ended, it was time to open the dance floor. I had tons of requests from the couple and only 90 minutes to rock, so I was ripping through songs fast! From song one until “Last Dance” by Donna Summer, this party raged. I loved every minute of it. Check out the sneak peek photo by Martha Manning. I can’t wait to see the film by Twenty One Films! Congrats Ben & Daniel! Thanks for having me!

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.
