Amy and Brian chose downtown Raleigh’s Solas Nightclub for their wedding ceremony and reception on March 12th. As guests arrived for the ceremony on the top floor they were treated by music performed by a live violinist. The short ceremony was soon over and guests made their way to the first floor for cocktails. During the cocktail hour I had a mix of beach music, standards and classic rock playing.
The Wedding Introductions
After pics were taken by photographer Rachel from Thirteenth Moon Photography, the guests were invited up to the 2nd floor for dinner and dancing by Solas’s Miriam. I had the same mix playing on this floor and went to line the wedding party up. The small wedding party (including their funny ring bearer Chase) was introduced to “Sirius” by Alan Parsons and Amy & Brian to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” by Stevie Wonder. They came right to the dance floor and had their first dance to Heatwave’s “Always and Forever”. One of my favorite ballads ever! The buffet opened in the back of the room and I continued the same music mix during dinner.
After dinner we had the toasts and opened the floor with some beach music and oldies that filled it for the next 2 hours. During dancing I played beach music, oldies, some current top 40, 80’s and a couple line dances until the last dance to “Wonderful Tonight”.
What a fun night and a great group to DJ for. Congratulations Amy & Brian!
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.
