Joe and Emily had both their ceremony and reception at Delightful Inspirations here in Raleigh, NC. They have a beautiful space out back where the ceremony took place, and the weather was actually amazing. I was handling the microphones and the music for this part of the day as well. The ceremony, officiated by Jay Bowers, was perfect and my favorite part was the recessional to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” by Stevie Wonder. They both looked so happy coming down that aisle! Afterwards, the guests made their way inside for the reception and the air conditioning!

Drinks and food were flowing as I played my “cocktail” mix and waited for the bridal party to arrive. Once they did, I went out and lined everyone up. They were ready to get into the room and start the party! I cranked up AC/DC’s “Rock N Roll Train” and did all of the intros and got a huge roar when I finally introduced Emily & Joe Giguere! They went right into their first dance “Wanted” by Hunter Hayes (a great song). Emily and her dad danced next to “When My Little Girl is Smiling” by The Drifters, and finally, Joe and his mom danced to “When You Say Nothing at All” by Allison Krauss. Before the late lunch/dinner, Jay Bowers came up and gave a lovely blessing and then the incredible buffets opened. The food looked fantastic, and the guests seemed to enjoy it. As the plates started clearing, the parents of the bride (actually great folks from my hometown of Wilson, NC) came up next and gave a quick toast and then Emily and Joe turned to the cake cutting. Finally, it was my turn to get these guests up and dancing, and from song number one, it was ON! Now, let me tell you, sometimes daytime weddings are a struggle, but not this one! These folks came to have a good time, and for almost two hours straight they danced hard! At the very end, we played “Gone Gone Gone” by Phillip Phillips and then made two lines inside to send off Joe and Emily the right way! What a great wedding! Congrats! I hope to get some photos soon from Rebecca at Red Fern Photography to add here.

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.
