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
