Jenn and Jay’s ceremony and reception took place at the amazing Angus Barn. This is one of Bunn DJ Company’s favorite venues in NC. For this wedding, we handled the microphone for the officiant as Arioso Strings handled the music. It was a perfect ceremony and great start to the day.
The First Dance
After the ceremony, the guests made their way to the other side of the pavilion as the quartet continued to play. I broke down the ceremony gear and got ready or the beginning of the reception. The salads were placed, the blessing was said and then it was time for introductions. I fired up Ed Sheeran’s “Castle on the Hill” as the bridal party made their way to the dance floor. Once Jenn and Jay walked in, every guests was standing and going nuts! They then went right into their first dance, “When You Say Nothing at All” by Alison Kraus.
Dinner was served and then after a little while, we began our toasts, starting with the father of the bride. Mr. King gave a very touching speech and welcome followed by the matron of honor and then the best man. After a few more minutes, dinner wrapped and we moved into the father/daughter dance. Jenn and her dad danced to “It Won’t Be Like This For Long” by Darius Rucker for about two minutes and then Jay and his mother joined in. After that song ended, it was open dancing time! They only picked a few must plays, so I was ripping through all types of songs and genres and steering clear of the line dances as they asked! The only pause in the dancing took place to cut the cake (as “At Last” by Etta James played). The night ended with a big sing along to “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi and then Ed Sheeran’s song “Perfect” closed out the night. The guests grabbed sparklers and headed outside to send off the newlyweds the right way! I can’t wait to see the images from Tammy at L’amour Photo!
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.
