The Grand Ballroom in the Capital Club Building Raleigh NC Wedding Venue
Jackee and Adam chose the top floor of Raleigh’s Historic Capital Club Building for their ceremony and reception in The Grand Ballroom. I was thrilled to be working with planner Nicole from Vision Events, caterers Rocky Top Catering, and photographer Kirsten Lehrschall who were all a dream to work with! As guests arrived for the ceremony, I had a mix of 20’s jazz playing. The ceremony was about to begin and I had the 100 guests find their seats.
Adam and their minister Dan Ellis entered an instrumental of “The Luckiest” and I then played “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” by IZ as their children came up the elevator and into the room for their performance which was one of the highlights of the whole night for me. Riley, Regan, and Jo made their way to their mics and guitar to play “Swept Away” by The Avett Brothers.
As the song was ending the doors of the elevator opened again with Jackee waiting to walk down the aisle with her father. Timed & performed perfectly! After the ceremony, they announced the bride and groom and I played “Wet Willie” by Goldfish (a 20’s themed dance track) as they exited for pictures. For the cocktail hour, I switched to electro swing (20’s jazz blended with current dance beats). After pics were taken, Jackee and Adam were ready for their grand entrance. I introduced them to “Home” by Edward Sharpe and they made their way to the dance floor for their first dance to “Bring Your Love To Me” by The Avett Brothers.
We had a couple of toasts and then went right onto dancing to Motown & oldies, some line dances, 90s hip hop & dance music. We ended the night with Adam and his friends singing “Friends In Low Places” and a filled dance floor to “Ice Ice Baby” and “Poison” until their last dance to “Time Of Your Life” by Green Day. What a fun bride and groom and their daughters could not be more wonderful! Thank you Jackee and Adam 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.
