I had not met Amanda and Andy until the day of their wedding. I had skyped with them for our initial meeting, so was looking forward to meeting them in person and DJing their reception.
The Wedding Cocktail Hour & Dinner
After the ceremony guests made their way to the pavilion and patio for cocktails, passed hors d’oeuvres and amazing veggie and cheese table. During the cocktail hour I had a mix of country, soft rock and classic soul playing. After Warren was done with pics I invited the guests to their seats. I introduced the wedding party and Amanda & Andy came right in to their first dance followed by a funny & heartfelt welcome by Amanda’s father. The food stations opened and I continued the same playlist as cocktails.
The Dancing and Exit
After dinner they went over to quietly cut the cake then had toasts by the Matron of honor and Best man. I opened the floor with some beach, Motown and top 40. We paused briefly for the bouquet and garter tosses, then back to dancing with a everyone doing a train around the pavilion to “Second Line” the traditional Mardi Gras song since Amanda’s parents are from New Orleans. The night ended with 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.
