I chose to celebrate my birthday with Laura and Dayton on their wedding day at The NC Museum Of Art. I had so much fun playing for them and their guests, it was a great decision!
The ceremony was held in the back plaza and Arioso Stings provided music for them. They always do such an amazing job!!
After the ceremony, the 140 guests made their way inside for cocktails, heavy hors d’oeuvres and to check out the art exhibits. During the cocktail hour I had a mix of standards, classic soul and classic rock playing. After pics were taken by Martha and Adrienne from F8 Photo Studios, I lined the wedding party up for intros with Morgan from the Museum. I introduced them to “Can’t Stop The Feeling” and they came in to loud applause. Laura & Dayton entered to “On Top Of The World” by Imagine Dragons and their pastor blessed the meal. The wedding party joined everyone at the food stations and I continued dinner music.
After dinner we had the Cinda’s Cake cutting to “How Sweet It Is” by James Taylor followed by toasts. After a Short break, Laura and Dayton made their way to the floor for their first dance to “Wonderful Tonight”. After that she danced with her Father to “The Way You Look Tonight” and Dayton and his Mother to “My Wish”. I invited all the married couples to the floor for an anniversary dance to “Remember When”. The winning couple were the Grandparents at 55 years married! So great!!
I opened the floor with “The Twist” and the energy went through he roof instantly. The floor was packed and guests were ready to dance the night away. For the next hour they danced to oldies, a couple line dances, top 40 and even some 80’s & 90’s. We paused for a bouquet toss to “Run The World” by Beyonce and garter toss to “Another One Bites The Dust”.
We ended the night with “Sweet Caroline” and finally “My Girl” before a glow sticks exit. What a fun night and I’m so glad I was able to celebrate my birthday with you Laura & Dayton! Congratulations to you both.
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.
