Allison & Andy’s Awesome Wedding at The Rickhouse in Durham, NC

Allison & Andy’s Wedding by Jamie Blow Photography

 

We recently had the pleasure of providing music and photo booth for Allison and Andy’s awesome wedding at The Rickhouse in Durham, NC! DJ Jim Unger loved working with these two and the incredible team of vendors who made it all possible!

At the ceremony, Allison and Andy chose a selection of Vitamin String Quartet covers and The Lord of the Rings songs which are always fun to play.  For their cocktail hour, they chose some great classic crooner style songs from Sinatra, Harry Connick Jr, Ella Fitzgerald, Bobby Darin and Nat King Cole.

At the reception, we played “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars for their introduction song which really brought up the energy! After dinner was over we packed the dance floor for the rest of the night until we played a great mix of James Taylor, Ray Charles, Swing to Temptations . Once the dance floor was really going strong, we brought in artist from their playlist like Beastie Boys, 50 Cent and 69 Boyz.

If this wedding was any indication of the years ahead for them together, Allison and Andy are in for a lot of fun! Our best wishes to an awesome couple.

Allison’s Review on Wedding Wire:

5.0/5.0 “All Around Raleigh DJ was absolutely fabulous! The DJ (Jim Unger) played all the songs that we liked and was able to read the crowd to determine the perfect next song. The dance floor was packed the entire night and the DJ helped to make it an amazing wedding.” – Allison

Laura & Blair’s Wedding at The Cotton Room in Durham, NC

Today we’re taking a look back at Laura & Blair classic southern fall wedding sprinkled with gold magnolia leaves.  This couple let their unique style come through in every little detail on their wedding day and everything came together amazingly. Laura and her team of bridesmaids made the gold magnolia backdrop for their wedding ceremony.  The groom is a musician and Laura’s entrance song was his own version of Canon in D…wow!  Make sure you scroll through all of the photos below because it got a little out of control when I called Laura and Blair up and let them take over the turntables!

“Thank you to these amazing wedding vendors for helping us make Laura and Blair’s wedding day perfect!”

 Venue: The Cotton Room is a true Durham original with exposed brick, lots of sunlight and wood floors but what truly makes this venue top-notch is the incredible staff.

Photography: Joseph and Andrea at Connection Photography were absolutely amazing to work with again!  Check out their beautiful and artistic style in the photos below.

 Florist: Only Tre Bella could capture the bride and groom’s exact style in flowers.  We are lucky to work with Tre Bella a lot and they always impress.

Wedding Cake: Miel Bon Bons artistically captured Laura and Blair truly unique style with the delicious and beautiful wedding cake.

Catering: Triangle Catering provided an amazing in-house experience worthy of the amazing day.
