What a romantic wedding ceremony & reception Morgan and Justin had at Highgrove Estate!!

The Wedding Ceremony

The ceremony was held in the back overlooking a pond and wooded hill. As the 110 guests arrived I had a mix of classical versions of pop songs playing. The ceremony was underway shortly officiated over by Minister Randy Taylor.

After the ceremony the guests made their way to the back patio for cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres. During the cocktail hour I had a mix of country, rock and soul playing while Rachel from Thirteenth Moon Photography and Phil from Twenty-One Films got some pics.

The Reception

After the cocktail hour, I invited guests into the ballroom for dinner and dancing. I left music playing in the ballroom and went in the house to line up the wedding party with help from Highgrove’s Grace. The wedding party came into the room and lined up in front of the sweetheart table. Morgan & Justin came in to thunderous applause and right to the floor for their first dance to “I Don’t Dance”. After that they took their seats and the salads and family style entrees came out. During dinner I played more country, rock & classic soul.

The Dancing

After dinner we had the toasts and cake cutting then the anniversary dance that started with all couples (not just married) with Morgan’s Grandparents winning. They were so cute and looked as happy as they could be! I opened the floor to everyone with some Motown and top 40 that filled the floor for the next hour and ½.

We paused briefly for the bouquet toss and an AO Pi loving cup song, then back to dancing til the end of the night. We ended with “From The Ground Up” and a sparkler exit from the front of the house. I was thrilled to see Justin dancing even though he never dances!!

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.
