I can’t put down into words how much fun I had at this wedding! The smile on Gina’s face all night was well worth all the work. What a wonderful couple!
After the ceremony earlier in the day the 120 guests made their way to Brier Creek Country Club for the cocktail hour, dinner & dancing (lots of dancing!!). The cocktail hour was held in Palmers Cove bar and I did not provide music for that.
After the cocktail hour the guests made their way down the hallway to the ballroom where I was set up and ready to go. I introduced the parents, wedding party and Gina & Luke and they came in for what would now be their second dance as husband and wife after dancing to their intro song for a little. Gina then danced with her father and Luke with his mother. Luke thanked everyone for coming and we had a couple toasts before the plated salads and entrées came out. During dinner I had a mix of standards, soft rock, country and classic soul playing.
After dinner we had the cake cutting and anniversary dance with the longest married couple marries 54 years. It was an extra special day for me because it is also my parent’s anniversary on this day! I opened the floor to everyone with some Motown and oldies and it instantly filled for the next 2 hours! I played lots of sing a longs, 2000’s hits, 70’s and 80’s and current dance music. Even a few country songs went over great.
We ended the night with a big sing a long to “Sweet Caroline” and finally Gina’s father leading a sing a long to “New York, New York” that wad the highlight of my night!
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.
