Destiney and Bradley had an early ceremony and reception a couple of weeks ago at the amazing Rose Hill Plantation Wedding Venue in Nashville, NC  (Click here to visit the Rose Hill Plantation site). The day started with an outdoor ceremony with the gorgeous plantation home from the 1800s as the backdrop. Destiney arrived on a horse-drawn carriage as I played an amazing version of “A Thousand Years” that she found. Now that’s a memorable ceremony!

After the ceremony, the guests made their way to the porch of Nathan Hall for cocktail hour where I also had music playing. Once inside, I did the bridal party introductions to U2’s “Beautiful Day” and then the couple went right into their first dance, a first for me, which I loved, called “Yours” by Russell Dickerson. It’s the wedding version if you go look it up! Destiney and her father danced next to “I Loved Her First” and they were great. Bradley and his mother chose Josh Groban’s “You Raise Me Up”. Destiney’s father welcomed everyone, the blessing was said and dinner was served!

After dinner, we did the toasts and cake cutting and then got some folks out there dancing! The only pauses were for the bouquet and garter. A nice start to the Spring for sure!
