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:

Alannah & Gabriel had a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception at The Bradford in New Hill on October 8th, 2016. Despite the not so wonderful weather caused by Hurricane Matthew, the couple and guests remained in high spirits. Our DJ took a positive spin from the hurricane and used “Rock You Like A Hurricane” by the Scorpions for the grand entrance of the Bridal Party into the reception. We worked with an incredible group of wedding vendors that made the day even more special for the newly married couple. Below, check out a review from Alannah as well as just a few of the fantastic photos by Caroline Lima Photography.

Wedding DJ: All Around Raleigh DJ Company – DJ Michael did a great job of working through the hurricane and helping where he could. Check out Alannah’s review of Michael: “Michael is something special! He was such a pleasure to work with leading up to the wedding, he has such great ideas and insights that he always presents in a very friendly and approachable way, he is so kind and wonderful to be around, and above all else he is great at his job! We got married during Hurricane Matthew and the schedule got a little delayed. Michael (and all of our other incredible vendors!) was kind enough to stay for an extra hour in order to ensure that we had a great party with tons of people on the dance floor. We are so grateful!” -Alannah

Wedding Venue: The Bradford – The Bradford is one of the newest and is quickly becoming one of the favorite wedding venues in the Triangle area. We are so lucky to be able to work with clients at this awesome venue!

Wedding Photographer: Caroline Lima Photography – Caroline is one of our favorite wedding photographers to work with. As you can see, she does an amazing job capturing photos even in the most difficult circumstances. Great Job Caroline!

Wedding Cake: Sugar Euphoria – We get to work with Sugar Euphoria at quite a few weddings. Everything always turns out great with them! They do an awesome job working with their clients, they will leave you very pleased.

Bride’s Hair Stylist: Wedding Hair by Liz – Liz is one of the most outgoing wedding professionals in the area. We love working with her and her team. Like Alannah says in her own review, “Liz is a consummate professional and an absolutely hilarious, wonderful person.”

Wedding Caterer: Donovan’s Dish – Thank you to everyone at Donovan’s Dish for your amazing work at this and every event that we get to work together!  A truly amazing caterer.

Wedding Florist: Flowers on Broad Street – As you will see in the photos below, Flowers on Broad Street does some pretty amazing work!  They are located in downtown Fuquay-Varina and we love their work!

Rentals: Greenhouse Picker Sisters – Holly and Amanda are fantastic! The Greenhouse Picker Sisters provides vintage rentals, decor, and event styling for weddings, styled shoots,
and more.

Event Coordinators: C and D Events – Courtney and Dana (CandD) and Bailey did they most amazing work with Hurricane Matthew bearing down on their wedding.  Somehow they not only kept every single guest happy and safe but also made it easy for the wedding vendors.  Great, great team!

Officiant: Randy Taylor – Randy was perfect! He always does a great job and makes sure that your ceremony honestly expresses who you are, the depth of your love, and your hopes for your future together

Eric & Lindsay’s Fairytale Wedding at Barclay Villa in Angier, NC

Eric & Lindsay's Wedding Thank you to Amy Allen Photography from All Around Raleigh Wedding DJ

Eric & Lindsay’s Wedding Thank you to Amy Allen Photography from All Around Raleigh Wedding DJ

Lindsay & Eric were married at ‘The Castle’ known as Barclay Villa in Angier, NC just before Christmas.  This was a very romantic, authentic and FUN wedding!  The bride and groom are two of the nicest people that we have had the honor of working with and it was a lot of fun to provide some Beauty & the Beast inspired music as well as some other classics to set the mood for the evening.  The crazy thing was that no one involved with the wedding has any local ties.  They wanted a castle for their wedding and low and behold they stumbled upon Barclay Villa while searching the internet.  We were lucky enough to be a part of a great vendor team that really worked hard to make these out of towners feel welcome and make their wedding perfect.  This was a very special wedding to be a part of. 

Check out the vendor team for Lindsay & Eric’s wedding!
