Bride and Groom: Robin & Dan Kirk
When & Where: The North Hills Club in Raleigh NC on April 24th, 2016
I was able to work with some truly amazing wedding professionals for this one!
Planner- Lauren Hayden from North Hills Club
Florist- Sandy M Designs
Photographer- Kelly Sullivan
Cake- Blue Moon Bakery
First Dance: A Thousand Years- Christina Perri
Cake Cutting: Sugar- Maroon 5
This was one of the most laid-back wedding receptions I have ever done, and Robin and Dan wanted it that way. This was not either’s first wedding, but still as sweet as if it was their first. Both were so excited to be getting married to each other!
The Cocktail Hour
The cocktail hour was held on the back patio overlooking the pool with jazz standards playing like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Michael Buble, My personal favorite style of music. Robin and Dan joined their 70 guests after some pics were taken by photographer Kelly Sullivan. As the cocktail hour ended guests made their way inside and to their tables with floral arrangements by Sandy M Designs.
The Introductions and Dinner
Robin and Dan came in to “It Had To Be You” by Harry Connick and right to the floor for their first dance to “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri. Dan then thanked everyone for coming and the food stations opened. During dinner I had a mix of classic soul, soft rock and standards playing.
After dinner we had the Blue Moon Bakery cake cutting to “Sugar” by Maroon 5 and then opened the floor with some beach music and oldies. During the night guests danced to line dances, oldies, some 70’s and 80’s and a few ballads.
Thank you Robin & Dan and congratulations!
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.
