Katrina & Kalep’s Blessed Wedding at The Cloth Mill at Eno River

Katrina & Kalep by Sarah Morrel Photography at The Cloth Mill at Eno River

Katrina & Kalep by Sarah Morrel Photography at The Cloth Mill at Eno River

Katrina & Kalep’s midsummer wedding was held at The Cloth Mill at Eno River and it was a truly special wedding to be a part of. We started the night off with a very special first dance cover of “Beloved” by Tenth Avenue North performed by the groomsmen (and they did great!). Katrina & Kalep made it very clear to us that dancing at their wedding reception was VERY important so we made sure to really focus on getting the party started right away. And did they dance!! Check out the great photos below from photographer Sarah Morrel Photography and the video from Johl Kuhn Creative. If you want to take a look at a real wedding reception timeline then Katrina & Kalep’s below.

Here is Katrina’s review of All Around Raleigh DJ Company:
“On our initial meeting, Eric had proactively googled around and found our website on the Knot. He used the info to create a “sample” playlist for the evening, which showed me right away that he really wanted to do this thing! And gave me a taste of what he thought we might like.

His easygoing, super friendly personality and professionalism immediately put me at ease and I walked out of the meeting going, “I DEFINITELY want to hire him!”  It was a fabulous decision–he played a huge role in keeping our friends dancing all night, and even let me (the bride) come pretend to be the DJ, which was freaking awesome. So hilarious!! Thank you Eric so much from the bottom of our hearts.” – Katrina & Kalep, August 6th, 2016

Here were the wonderful vendors we got to work with:
