This was my second wedding in July at Merrimon-Wynne and I loved every minute of it! This time was for Nancy and Jason and I provided music and mics for the ceremony in the carriage house with pastor Randy Taylor. The ceremony was so nice and included a couple readings. Great job as always Randy Taylor!

After the ceremony, guests made their way to the house for cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres while photographer Hooman got some shots and the staff flipped the Carriage House for the reception.

After the cocktail hour the 100+ guests made their way back to the Carriage House that looked beautiful with floral arrangements by Diane at Bowerbird Flowers. They found their seats and I introduced the wedding party and Nancy & Jason. They came in and had their first dance and parents dances, then I opened the floor with some Motown and oldies for dancing while the dinner buffet opened in the house. Guests could either dance or visit the buffet. What a great idea!

After everyone had eaten I took the dancing up a notch and the floor filled for the next 2 hours. They danced to line dances (heavily led by Nancy’s little niece) and top 40, 2000’s hits and some 80’s. We paused briefly for the garter/bouquet tosses and then back to dancing til the end of the night. We ended the night with “Forever” by Chris Brown and they made their way to the front of the house for a sparkler exit.

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.
