Brier Creek Country Club Wedding for Lauren and Renato in Raleigh, NC

How much did we love working with Lauren & Renato?! Soooo much!  We met Lauren & Renato at small event in Lafayette Village about a year before their wedding and we immediately noticed and appreciated how excited they were to get married and they just seemed to smile all the time.  They ended up working with a few of the members of the NC Wedding Ring: Watkins Flowers of Distinction, Kevin Seifert Photography and us of course.  Brier Creek Country Club hosted their wedding and looked perfect as always!  Their on-site coordinator was Shannon and she was such a pleasure to work with and really catered to the clients on their wedding day.

Lauren & Renato’s music choices were a mix of very contemporary and casual like Haley Reinhart and Ed Sheeran to classic wedding music and great Latin dancing music.  Their wedding day was upbeat, emotional, incredibly fun and even better than they ever expected!  You’re going to love seeing all the happy smiling faces in the great photos from Kevin Seifert Photography below.

Enjoy married life and best wishes to Renato & Lauren!

We loved reading this review from Lauren & Renato

“Having All around Raleigh DJ was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Eric Hodgden was our DJ and he did an amazing job. He was always willing to help and answer all of our questions we had during the planning of our wedding. He met with us a couple of times and followed up with emails fairly quickly. The day of the wedding, Eric did an incredible job by keeping everyone entertained with great music and announcements for our events in the reception. We couldn’t have been happier how our wedding turned out, thanks to the music provided by Eric. As some people said, our wedding was lit! We highly recommend booking All around Raleigh DJ for your wedding day! Thank you so much, Lauren and Renato”

Vivian & Edward’s Dinosaur Wedding at Museum of Life and Science in Durham, NC

Red Bridge Photography – Vivian & Edward’s Wedding at Museum of Life and Science – Dinosaurs!

Vivian & Edward’s wedding at the Museum of Life and Science was really amazing and special in so many ways!  This was a really unique venue that we didn’t know too much about but, as you can, it is pretty obvious why this great couple chose this spot.  Where else can you have your photos taken with a T-Rex on the Dinosaur Trail and with butterflies in the Magic Wings Butterfly House!

As you’ll see in the wonderful photos from Red Bridge Photography below, the couple went with a very pretty green accents which really brought in the lush scenery surrounding the museum.  The newlyweds got time to take their photos in the butterfly house and had their ceremony out on the grass right in front of the building.  Very stunning!

The vendor team below was spectacular to work with.  Everyone pitched in and worked so hard to make this wedding seamless for Vivian & Edward and their friends and family.  Please visit them and tell them that they rock!

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
