Jordyn & Casey’s Plantation Wedding at Rose Hill
This is one of the sweetest couples I have played a wedding for! I was so happy to be the DJ for their ceremony and reception at Rose Hill in Nashville NC on November 19th.
The Wedding Ceremony
Their ceremony was held in the back looking over a pond with white swans swimming in, despite the really strong wind. Jordyn’s mother found some awesome versions of “Canon in D”, “The Bridal March” and “Wedding March” on line for me to use. I will def use these again! After the ceremony by Minister Francios, they recessed and the guests made their way into the house for cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres. During the cocktail hour I had a mix of soft rock, classic soul, standards and country playing for the 100 guests.
After the cocktail hour, the guests made their way next door to the ballroom for dinner and dancing. The room looked beautiful with our uplights that matched the linens and floral arrangements by Brides & Bouquets. They found their seats and I introduced the wedding party to “Uptown Funk”. Jordyn & Casey came in for their first dance to “Stay With You” by John Legend. After that came the parents dances and a heartfelt welcome by Jordyn’s father. The salads and entrée’s came out and I continued the same music mix.
After dinner we had the toasts and Simply Cakes cutting to “Sugar, Sugar”. I opened the floor to everyone with some Motown and top 40 that filled it with young and old for the next 3 hours. The Classic Carolina Photo Booth was a huge hit all night! We paused briefly for the bouquet & garter toss, then back to dancing till the end of the night. We ended the night with “You Shook Me All Night Long” and a sparkler exit. What an amazing night thanks to planner Carly from La Fete! I can’t wait to see the pics by Rachel & January with Thirteenth Moon Photography and video by Thomas Blake Films!
Congratulations Jordyn and Casey and thank you for your service to our country Casey!

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.
