It was so great to play for the Wiggins Family again! I met them 3 years ago when I DJ’d one of their other Daughters , Laura and Steve Avent’s wedding. They had so much fun they had to have me back and I was thrilled to be there! Sarah and Barrett had their reception at the beautiful Donald Trump property, The Point located right on Lake Norman outside of Charlotte NC. There were boats on the lake and after the rain passed, it was beautiful outside.
Guests arrived to the cocktail hour and I had a mix of classic Motown, beach music and country playing. After some pics taken by Marylou with Allbliss Photography the wedding party and Sarah and Barrett were ready to be announced into the room to “Are You Going To Kiss Me Or Not” by Thompson Square and had their first dance to the very appropriate “Someday, Sarah” by Dave Barnes. Sarah’s Father came up to welcome everyone and Mark Pitts blessed the meal. The meal was a “backyard BBQ” without the back yard. Pit pickin’, slaw and potato salad, BBQ chicken, baked beans.. It looked awesome! For dinner I continued the same style of music as the cocktail hour.
After dinner Sarah’s Father met her on the floor to Michael Buble’s version of “Daddy’s Little Girl” and Barrett escorted his Mother to the floor for their dance to “That’s What Mama’s Do” by Jason Matthews. Great country song! I opened the floor for a short beach and Motown set then mixed into the sing if the summer, “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke and I heard a loud “WOOOOO” !! After a couple current songs and some 70’s disco, it was time for the toasts and the cake cutting to “How Sweet It Is” by James Taylor. Sarah’s Bridesmaids surprised Barrett with a choreographed dance to “You’re The One That I Want” from Grease as he sat in the middle of the dance floor and they danced around him. So great. I opened the floor again and kept them out there until the bouquet toss to “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love” and garter toss to “Country Boy’s World”. A few sing-a-long songs followed and it was time for the last song of the evening “Wonderful Tonight” and they made their bubble exit from the front of the building.
One of the highlights for me was Barrett’s cousin showing his breakdancing moves to “Scary Monsters” by Skrillex. That kid is great and would give MJ a run for his money!
What a fun reception and I can not wait to DJ their final Daughter’s wedding!
