Virginia & Chase has such a magical winter wedding at The Fearrington on December 10th! Their ceremony and reception were just beautiful.
The Wedding Ceremony
The ceremony was held in the Garden Terrace in front of a huge roaring fire with minister Barbara Lodge. As the guests arrived I had a mix of classical pop songs playing. The parents entered to an acoustic guitar version of “In My Life” and the bridesmaids to “I’ll be there”. For Virginia’s entrance her cousins played guitar and sang “I Will” that sounded amazing and so very special!! After a heartfelt ceremony with written vows and a handfasting ceremony, they recessed to one of my favorite 80’s songs “I Melt With You” by Modern English. Barbara released the guests and invited them to the barn for cocktails while photographer Krystal Kast got some shots.
The entrance to the barn was decorated with lite Christmas trees on both sides and a table down the middle with seating assignment cards. During the cocktail hour I had a mix of classic soul and indie rock playing. After Krystal was done with pics, Virginia & Chase joined their 100 guests for a short time before being introduced. I introduced them to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” and her parents welcomed everyone. They had their first dance to The Velvet Underground’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror” and the food stations opened.
After dinner we had the toasts before the parents dances. Virginia met her Father on the floor to dance to Sam Cooke’s Nothing Can Change This Love”. Chase escorted his Mother to the floor for their dance to “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts. It was a surprise song for Chase. I opened the floor to everyone with some Motown and top 40 that filled it for a marathon 3.5 hours! We paused briefly for the cake cutting to “Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps” by Cake, then back to dancing to some 80’s alternative and 2000’s hits.
We ended the night with “Time Of My Life” from Dirty Dancing and a sparkler exit. Thank you so much Virginia & Chase and congratulations!
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.
