Anthony and Liane drew the unlucky straw on the Spring weather calendar. It was pouring down rain and unusually cold for early April, but they didn’t let it ruin their amazing reception and wedding at Merrimon-Wynne House Raleigh. (Click here out this awesome venue)

The day started with the ceremony taking place in The Carriage House portion of the property. We did the mics, and they hired a guitarist for the music that was great. Guests moved into the original house for cocktails after the ceremony and we “flipped the room”. I moved my ceremony system outside under the tent for dinner and then started setting up my main DJ console and uplighting for the dancing.

After cocktails, guests came into the tent for an amazing welcome from the bride and groom, and then food stations provided by Posh Nosh Catering. As dinner wrapped, several folks gave amazingly funny toasts. We then moved into the Carriage House again finally for dancing. Anthony and Liane did their first dance to “We Found Each Other In The Dark” by City and Colour. That’s a great song! I had heard it but never used it before. Right after they did their dance, it was ON! Party time! These guests came to get down! We rocked until 11 pm, when it was time to shut down and send them off with a sparkler departure. Truly a great party. I can’t wait to see the images from Riley McLean. Kathy with Sally Oakley Wedding & Events did an amazing job keeping this one running so smoothly!

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.
