Ali and Will’s Wedding at The Fearrington
I never met Ali & Will until the day of their wedding. They both live in London and had a destination wedding here. I was thrilled to play their wedding and spin some Latin for Ali’s side of the family.
The plans for an outdoor wedding were foiled by rain, but the great thing about The Fearrington is that there’s always a back-up plan. The ceremony was moved into the Garden Terrace where the reception was supposed to be and the reception moved to the beautiful Fearrington Barn.
After a short ceremony with music provide by Florian Music, the 110 guests made their way to the barn for the reception. The cocktail hour was held inside the barn with music again by Florian Music. After pics were taken the wedding party was ready to be introduced. I went to line them up and introduced them to “Whole Wide World” by Wreckless Eric. Great song!! Ali & Will came in and right to the floor for their first dance to a minute of “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” by Aerosmith. Alison’s Father welcomed everyone and the food stations opened. During dinner, I had a mix of Indie rock playing.
After dinner, we had the toasts and I opened the dance floor. Within minutes the floor was packed with beach music, Motown, and top 40. It stayed that way for the next 3 hours! We paused for the cake cutting to “Love You Madly” by Cake (get it???) and then back to dancing to top 40 and Reggaeton.
We ended the night with “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen and finally “Love On Top” by Beyonce. As guests left I played the Gipsy Kings “Hotel California” before the sparkler exit. What a fun night and awesome group to DJ for!
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.
