Becca & Matt’s Raleigh Wedding at Oro Restaurant
I was so thrilled to DJ Rebecca & Matt’s wedding at downtown Raleigh’s fabulous Oro Restaurant & Lounge! I knew this was going to be a great one and that they were big dancers after seeing them at Kim & Casey’s wedding.
The Cocktail Hour & First Dance
Their ceremony was held at Mahler Gallery on Raleigh’s Fayetteville Street for 80 guests. After the ceremony, the guests made their way to Oro just 2 blocks away. During the cocktail hour, I had a mix of soft rock, classic soul, and standards playing. After pics were taken by Taylor and her crew from Blue Barn Photography, they made their way to Oro for introductions. I introduced Becca & Matt to thunderous applause and they had their first dance to “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray Lamontagne. I invited guests to take their seats for dinner and the salads came out.
After the salads and appetizers were out we had the toast and the family-style entrées came out shortly. During dinner, I had the same music mix playing. Guests actually started dancing toward the end of dinner. I cleared the floor for the parents’ dances to “What A Wonderful World” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”. Some Motown brought everyone, I mean EVERYONE, back onto the floor for the next 2 1/2 hours. They went hard!! I played oldies, top 40, and some hip-hop and even dropped The Killers on them with everyone singing it.
I ended the night with “Wagon Wheel”. What a fantastic wedding and crown to play for! Thank you Matt & Becca 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.
