I was really looking forward to DJing Madison & Daniel’s wedding at Prestonwood Country Club! They are such a nice couple and I really wanted it to be perfect for them!
Their ceremony was held earlier in the day at Resurrection Lutheran Church and the 150 guests made their way to Prestonwood directly after. They enjoyed cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres in the hallway in front of the ballroom where I was set up.
The doors to the ballroom opened and guests found their seats. The wedding party entered from the side hallway and Madison & Daniel from the top of the grand staircase. They came down the stairs and had their first dance followed by a welcome by Maddie’s father and blessing by Daniel’s father. The salads and entrees came out and I had a mix of country, rock and classic soul playing.
After dinner we had the parents dances, toasts and cake cutting then opened the floor with some oldies and top 40 that filled it shortly until the end of the night. We paused briefly for the bouquet toss and then back to dancing. We ended the night with “Don’t Stop Believin’” and finally a huge circle in the middle of the dance floor with everyone’s arms around each other to the UNC alma mater before a blue & white pom-pom exit from the front of the building.
This was one of my favorite weddings, and not one I, or the guests, will soon forget!

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.
