Christina & Cody’s Christmas Wedding
I was thrilled to DJ Christina & Cody’s beautiful wedding at The Fearrington 2 days before Christmas! They are the nicest couple and I am so happy for them! It was also great running into a past couple and parents of a Bride I had DJd for before.
The Wedding Ceremony
Christina and Cody chose Pittsboro NC’s Fearrington Village for both their ceremony and reception on December 23rd. I supplied music for both. The ceremony was held in the Garden Terrace in front of a fireplace. As guests arrived I had a mix of contemporary love songs and Christian Christmas songs playing. They had singers for the processionals and during their first communion as husband and wife. After a beautiful ceremony officiated by Christina’s Grandfather, in the beginning, they were married and recessed to “The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year” by Andy Williams. The guests made their way to a tent on the walkway for the cocktail hour. During the cocktail hour, I had a mix of jazz standards and Christmas music playing.
The Introduction and Dances
After pics were taken by photographer Erica Serrano and video by Twenty-One Films, the guests were invited to the barn by planner Jessica from Happily Ever After for the reception. After the 150 guests found their seats I introduced our new married couple to “White Dress” by Ben Rector. They came in and had their first dance to a shortened edit I did for them of “Tenerife Sea” by Ed Sheeran. Christina then danced with her father to “The Girl You Think I Am” by Carrie Underwood. Cody & his mother followed dancing to “I Can’t Begin To Tell You” by Bing Crosby and Christina’s father welcomed everyone before her Grandfather blessed the meal. During the served dinner I had more standards and Christmas music playing.
After dinner we had the toasts and anniversary dance with the winners being married 57 years! Wow!! I then opened the floor to everyone with some oldies and top 40 while the photo booth opened. We paused briefly for the cake cutting to “LOVE” by Nat King Cole and a Happy Birthday sing a long to a surprised Maggie. The bouquet and garter toss followed then back to dancing to top 40/hip-hop until the end of the night. Their last dance was to “Today” by Brad Paisley that is soon to be a HUGE wedding song and then snow & silver bells exit from the front of the barn.
Thank you so much Christina & Cody and Merry Christmas! AND, a HUGE THANK YOU to Cody for your service to our country!!
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.
