I loved playing for this group so much! Both Nerea & Richard are not only military, but Nerea is going on to teach at West Point! There were lots of guests that were also military and came to celebrate!!

After the introductions into the room, Nerea’s father took the mic for a laugh filled welcome and the Greek buffet opened. During dinner I had a mix of standards, classic soul and indie rock playing.

After dinner we had a few toasts and the cake cutting, then Nerea and Richard had their first dance followed by her dance with her father. I opened the floor to everyone with Motown and top 40 that filled it for the next 2 hours. During that time I played lots of current top 40, a few 80’s and 90’s songs and some Latin salsa & merengue.

This was one of my favorite weddings, and not one I, or the guests, will soon forget!

Thank you again

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.
