Sam and Jacob took the scenic drive down from their home in Brooklyn, NY for their wedding on April 25th at Middleton Place in Charleston, SC. The grooms were joined by about 85 of their closest family and friends who enjoyed the beautiful spring day at one of Charleston’s most iconic and beautiful places.

I was able to work with some incredible vendors on this one! Katie Poole and her staff from The Burlap Elephant were amazing and planned a beautiful wedding while making everything so simple for us vendors. Also, it was great to work with the very talented Leigh Webber of Leigh Webber Photography and I cannot wait to see the final shots! Charleston Stems provided the beautiful arrangements for the ceremony and reception.

After guests enjoyed a beautiful ceremony and cocktails overlooking the Butterfly Ponds and Ashley River, they made their way into the Pavilion for dinner and the reception. After some amazing southern cuisine by Butcher and Bee, Sam and Jacob danced with their mothers to “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac. When then officially started the party with traditional Jewish wedding song “Hava Naglia” and everyone rushed the dance floor to lift our grooms up in their chairs…their parents were even hoisted up by the guests!

We kept the party going with tons of great music. I cannot say enough about how awesome the playlist template was that Sam and Jacob gave me! I played something from every decade going back to the 50’s. I played everything on this night! I played Ace of Base, Robyn, Paula Abdul, Rihanna, Kanye West, Notorious BIG, Marky Mark, Vanilla Ice, Frankie Valli, Spice Girls, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Beastie Boys…just to name a few. We closed out the reception with “FourFiveSeconds” by Kanye West, Rihanna and Paul McCartney.

The grooms were great, their families were great and all of the guests were great! I had so much fun playing for them, if they all had just half as much fun as I did then it was a success! I am so honored to have been part of the first same-sex wedding at Middleton Place and to have been able to work for such great people.

We all at Bunn DJ Company wish Sam and Jacob all the best and a lifetime of happiness!
