Wow, last Saturday was a busy one for me at this particular wedding. Not only was I the DJ for the reception, but I also was doing the mics and music for the ceremony, and the uplighting for the Old Well Room at The Carolina Inn! It was another hot Saturday, but I think they got lucky and the sun “hid” for a while during their short but sweet ceremony. My favorite part of the ceremony was after they were married, they chose “You’re My Best Friend” by Queen for their recessional! The guests then made their way to the front porch of the hotel for cocktail hour where I also had music playing (almost forgot about that).

As the guests entered The Old Well Room, I was cueing up the introduction for the bridal party “Uptown Funk”. A great way to start the event I’d say! Once Ben and Mary entered, they went right into their first dance, one of my faves, Ray Lamontagne’s “You Are the Best Thing”. Immediately after, the food stations opened.

As dinner ended, we did the cake cutting (another Edible Art masterpiece) and then Ben and his mother danced to “Simple Man” by Lynyrd Skynyrd. No more stops after that. No bouquet and no garter, just straight up dance party! What a blast! These folks came to get down! I had a blast, the couple had a blast and the purple room looked amazing! Shout out to Stephanie and Kristin from Viva L’Event for another great job. I’m sure Cara Galati of F8 Photo Studios will be replacing my iPhone photos on this blog with some of her magic soon.

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.
