I was beyond thrilled and excited to be Sean & Scott’s DJ for their wedding reception at The Fearrington Barn in Pittsboro NC. It was held on Halloween night, but instead of having a typical Halloween party, they chose to have a black-tie / masquerade party. So great!! For the ceremony, they had one of my fav’s ministers Robin Renteria perform the ceremony in the beautiful side garden, complete with red carpet and live classical musicians. One of the best parts of the ceremony was Scott’s handwritten vows he sang to the tune of “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift. I have never seen that before and loved the idea. After the ceremony, guests made their way to the patio in front of the barn for cocktails and I had a mix of jazz standards playing.
After pics were taken by photographer Corey Williams from Glee & Bliss Photography the 160 guests started making their way inside the barn for dinner and dancing. Sean and Scott entered and came right to the dance floor for their dance to Lana Del Rey’s “Young & beautiful”. I LOVE that song! They took their seats and both their fathers came up for a hilarious welcome and roast. The served dinner came out and I played a mix of classic soul and Motown.
After dinner, I opened the floor for a short time with some Motown, top 40 and 80’s hits that filled it with young and old for the next 3 hours. We paused for a few toasts, a special happy birthday sing-a-long to Sean who’s birthday was the upcoming Tuesday, and cake cutting to “Sugar” by Maroon 5 and then back to dancing until the end of the night.
I ended the night with “Time Of My Life” from Dirty Dancing but guests weren’t ready to leave yet (including Sean and Scott) and kept chanting “One More Song”. So, I caved and played “Disturbia” by Rihanna before they had their sparkler exit.
