Jenny & Clayton’s Grand Wedding at The Umstead Hotel in Cary, NC

Jenny & Clayton’s Wedding by Emily Chidester Photography

We’ve been a part of so many amazing weddings so far this season and we’ve only just begun! Earlier this year we got to provide DJ and photo booth service for Jenny and Clayton’s wedding – here’s a few words about their big day:

Jenny and Clayton had a beautifully quaint wedding out at the amazing Umstead Hotel in Cary, NC.  Their first dance was to ‘Forces’ by Japanese Wallpaper.  You can see some great photos from the very talented and fun Emily Chidester Photography below.

This couple has very diverse musical tastes!  Their play list included: Avicii, Florence + The Machine, Hozier, Calle 13, Flume and Daft Punk to name a few.   They also really love some motown, folk hits, lots of indie rock and top 40 dance music from today like Bruno Mars and Lil Jon.

Tiffany & Chris’s Superstar Wedding at Renaissance North Hills!

 

Tiffany & Chris were married at Jones Chapel at Meredith College and their reception was at Renaissance North Hills Hotel in Raleigh, NC on May 23rd, 2015 on an absolutely beautiful North Carolina day.  Tiffany & Chris were amazing clients to get to know during our many ‘meetings’at Tyler’s Taproom at Seaboard Station.  They wanted an absolute blow out party after all the formalities were done and that’s what they got!  We had a packed dance floor from start to finish and snuck in some amazing old-school tracks that blew the top off the venue but the song of the night had to be ‘The Man’ by Aloe Blacc!  Thanks for being such amazing clients.

Here are the amazing wedding vendors that we got to work with and who did such a great job for our couple:

Vesic Photography – Vesic Photography is simply the best photographer that I have ever worked with and you can see his amazing work below.

Ed Sansbury – Ed is a wonderful wedding officiant and I am lucky to have worked with him at many events.  Always a pleasure to be around and always does a great job for his clients.

Fresh Affairs – The Fresh Affairs team is one of the best local wedding floral designers and is another one of our preferred vendors!

Sweet Memories Bakery – Sweet Memories is so wonderful to work with.  I always hear the clients rave about how good the cake is and … isn’t that what it is all about?!

Tiffany Mentrak – Tiffany and her team are very talented professional hairstylist.  We always see her great work but we just don’t get to see her enough!

Southern Video Design – John is so great to work with!  We have worked with him multiple times and are amazed at how great his videos are but we never even know he’s there shooting such great footage!
