Lauren and Chris chose Highgrove Estate in Fuquay-Varina, NC for both ceremony and reception on a picture perfect November 3rd day.  I provided a mic for their minister and music for the reception.

The Wedding Ceremony

As the 80 guests arrived for the ceremony they were treated to live music by Mary Page and another from Arioso Strings.  After a short ceremony that included a bible reading by her Grandfather, they were married! The guests made their way to the back patio for cocktails.

The Cocktail Hour

During the cocktail hour I had a mix of country and soft rock playing.  After pics were taken by Bill from Thirteenth Moon Photography the guests were invited into the ballroom for dinner and dancing.  The room looked beautiful with arrangements by Flowers On Broad Street.

The First Dance

I introduced the wedding party to “Shut Up And Dance” and Lauren and Chris came in for their first dance to “We Found Each Other In The Dark” by City & Color.  We had the parents dances next.  Lauren danced with her Father to “My Little Girl” and Chris & his Mother to “Mother Like Mine” by The Band Perry.  Lauren’s Father welcomed everyone and blessed the meal.  The salads and family style entrees came out and I played a mix of standards during dinner.

The Dancing

After dinner we had the toasts and I opened the floor. I started with some Motown and Top 40 that soon filled it.  We paused for the cake cutting to “Sugar” by Maroon 5 and bouquet toss to “Single Ladies.  The coffee and s’more stations opened and I went back to dance music until the end of the night.  I played a great set of early 2000’s hits that Lauren and her girls had a blast dancing and singing along to!!

We ended the night with “You Are The Best Thing” and a sparkler exit from the front of the house.  Thank you Lauren and Chris 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.
