Gracey Hulbert and Richard Nam made their way to Charleston from Naples, FL to the have the picture-perfect St. Patrick’s Day wedding at The Vendue in Charleston, SC. The newlyweds-to-be were joined by about 50 of their closest family and friends who all enjoyed a beautiful wedding on a beautiful day. The ceremony and reception were held on the main level of The Rooftop and everyone enjoyed an amazing dinner in The Vendue’s signature restaurant, The Drawing Room. The Vendue is known as “Charleston’s Art Hotel” which was fittingly perfect for this bride. Gracey is quite a talented artist; she even painted the table assignments for her wedding dinner, which were unbelievable!
Working with Alex Crall and his incredible staff at The Vendue was remarkable. They all were fantastic, made everyone feel so welcomed and made it all so easy for the vendors and guests.
After guests enjoyed an outstanding dinner, everyone headed back up to the rooftop where we had some great music waiting for them…not to mention a crepe station! Gracey and Richard performed an amazing choreographed first-dance to “Everybody Loves Somebody” by Dean Martin. Gracey then danced with her father to the aptly named “Gracie” by Ben Folds. It was a very special moment and dance for the two of them as Gracey is the youngest of three girls, the two older whom are married. I don’t think there was a dry eye on that rooftop as they danced. Richard joined the other special woman in his life, his mother, on the dance floor and they danced to “A Parent’s Prayer” by Stephen Curtis Chapman.
Gracey and Richard put their full faith and trust in me to keep people dancing, telling me to do what I do. We packed the floor from the beginning to the end. I played hits from the last six decades, everything from Sister Sledge to Redbone to Journey to Calvin Harris to Whitney Houston to Missy Elliott. We unfortunately had to end what was a perfect evening, and we ended the night with Donna Summer’s “Last Dance.” I also have to mention one of their wedding hashtags since it was so great and I loved it…#saymynam.
I had such a great time working with Gracey and Richard and their families. From the first time we talked I knew they would be great to work with. They were fun, excited and just awesome people. It is clients like them, and weddings like theirs, that make what I do not feel like work. It was a privilege to get to know them and be part of their special day. I just hope they and their guests had as much fun as I did!
We all at Bunn DJ Company wish Gracey and Richard all the best and a lifetime of happiness!
