A Memorial Weekend Wedding at Merrimon Wynne
Katie and Will’s wedding took place at The Merrimon-Wynne House just around the corner from the Bunn DJ Co. HQ and right beside the Governor’s Mansion. We are there all the time, amazing place! The ceremony was in the lawn just beside the Carriage House and main house. We provided the music and audio and it was a perfect ceremony. That’s always a great way to start the evening! Especially when the recessional is one of my favorite songs, “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray Lamontagne.
After the ceremony, guests hung out in the main house and on the lawn playing corn hole and other games and enjoying drinks and passed food by Rocky Top Catering. As cocktail hour wrapped, the guests made their way into the carriage house for introductions. The parents entered to “How Sweet It Is” by James Taylor, the wedding party to “Forever” by Chris Brown, and finally Will and Katie came in to “Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)”. A quick blessing was said, and the buffet opened.
As dinner concluded, the toasts started. There were some great ones that night! After the toasts, we went right into the special dances. Katie and Will danced to “Unforgettable” by Natalie and Nat King Cole. Next Katie and her father shared a dance to “In My Life” by The Beatles. And finally, Will and his mom danced to “You Can Close Your Eyes” by James Taylor. Next, it was my turn to rock! There were no other stops, so it was party time! It was such a nice night that a lot of folks were on the lawn, but once we opened the doors and cranked the music, they packed the floor! The night closed out with a rousing rendition of “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey and a sparkler sendoff. What a great night! Congrats guys!
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.
