Michelle & Scott’s Wedding at The Angus Barn
I always love DJing weddings at Raleigh’s Angus Barn Pavilion! This was my first of the year and what a great wedding it was.
The Wedding Ceremony
Michelle and Scott had both ceremony and reception at the Pavilion. The ceremony was held at the pond and was picture perfect after the short sprinkle of rain that helped cool it down a little. I supplied music and also mics for Scott and their officiant who is also his Aunt. The Parents walked down the aisle to “Turning Page” by Sleeping At Last. After that the wedding party came down to “Home” and Michelle & her Father to “The Cello Song”. After a short ceremony they recessed to “You Make My Dreams Come True”. The 130 guests were invited to the pavilion for cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres while photographer Cade Bowman got some shots.
The First Dance
During the cocktail hour I had a mix of indie rock, country & classic soul playing. After the cocktail hour guests found their seats and I went to line the wedding party up. I introduced them to “Forever” by Chris Brown and Michelle & Scott to “What I Like About You”. They had their first dance to “We Got Love” by The Talbott Brothers. It was my first time playing this song and I love it! Great choice. They took their seats and Michelle’s Father welcomed everyone and Scott’s Aunt blessed the meal. During dinner I played the same music mix as cocktails.
After dinner we had the toasts and cake cutting and Michelle joined her Father on the floor for their dance. The song was a surprise to her. He had a friend blend 5 country songs together that were special to them while she was growing up. So special and sweet!! Scott escorted his Mother to the floor for their dance to “My Wish”. I opened the floor to everyone with some Motown and top 40 that filled it for the next 2.5 hours. What a fun crowd! I played country, line dances, top 40, oldies and some sing a longs. We ended the night with “Sweet Caroline” and a huge sing a long circle with everyone in it before a sparkler exit.
Thank you Michelle & Scott and congratulations!

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.
