I was thrilled to DJ Cathy & Taylor’s wedding at Doubletree in RTP! They are the nicest couple and picked some great music!

After the ceremony at St. Thomas Moore in Chapel Hill, guests made their way to the Inn for the reception. During the cocktail hour, they had a live pianist playing. After the cocktail hour, the 120 guests made their way into the ballroom for dinner and dancing. I introduced the wedding party and Cathy & Taylor came in for their first dance followed by a welcome from Cathy’s father and a blessing by Craig McCoy. The salads and entrées came out and I had a mix of standards, classic soul, and soft rock playing.

After dinner we had the toast and cake cutting, then opened the dance floor for a short time with some Motown and top 40. After some dancing, we had the anniversary dance, then back to dancing til the end of the night. During the next 2 hours, guests packed the floor and danced to top 40, oldies, and some sing-a-longs that included a circle of friends all singing “Friends In Low Places” and “Piano Man” at the top of their lungs! So great!!

We ended the night with “Save The Last Dance For Me” by The Drifters and finally Donna Summer’s “Last Dance”.

This was one of my favorite weddings and not one I, or the guests, will soon forget!

Thank you again,

DJ Randy Bennett

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.
