Stephanie & Patrick’s Hip Hop Wedding at Bay 7 in Durham, NC

 

 

 

It was all smiles at Stephanie & Patrick’s wedding at Bay 7 in Durham, NC and we’re so glad to have been able to provide the DJ service, lighting and photo booth on their wedding day.  We’re also super pumped to share some images from one of our all-time favorite wedding photographers of their wedding by Connections Photography!

Their reception started off with the new couple and their very dapper wedding party walking in to the beautiful Bay 7 ballroom at the American Tobacco Campus with House of Pain’s “Jump Around” setting the perfect mood for the PARTY to come. The newlyweds took the dance floor to share their first dance as a married couple to “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds which is a fabulous song for a first dance.

The amazing dinner by the highly acclaimed Angus Barn was served and the Empty Pockets Band took over with their amazing performance.  Stephanie & Patrick really wanted to hit it hard after dinner so the band took the rest of the night off!

After some very special and entertaining toasts by Stephanie’s sisters and Patrick’s Father, Patrick invited his Step-Mom out for a really touching dance to “Humble and Kind” by Tim McGraw. Then Stephanie and her father shared the dance floor to “Pintame” by Elvis Crespo which was a lot of fun and transitioned into a dance with the groom and is Mom to “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts.  We broke open the dance floor with “September” by Earth, Wind and Fire but quickly to a ton of great hip-hop by Nelly, Young Joc, Fetty Wap, French Montana, Lil’ Wayne, Petey Pablo, Flo Rida, Lil Jon and a whole bunch more.  It was an intense and crazy dance floor especially with the uplights going hard to turn Bay 7 into a night club for the night!

Patrick and Stephanie designed their timeline to maximize time spent on the dance floor, and I’m really glad they did! Their friends and family kept dancing the entire time, all the way up to the last song of the evening, “Wagon Wheel” by Old Crow Medicine Show. It was a fitting song to capture the mood of pure joy and celebration of this wedding. Congratulations and best wishes go out to Stephanie and Patrick!

Stephanie & Daniel’s Train Station Wedding at 305 Trackside in Southern Pines, NC


We’re back with another amazing wedding that we got to DJ for!  It was all smiles at Stephanie & Daniel’s wedding at 305 Trackside and we’re so glad to have been able to provide the music for their day.  We’re too excited to share some of our favorite images of their wedding by Jennifer B Photography!

The night opened up with some light acoustic music for the cocktail hour which allowed everyone to catch up and have a few drinks as the newlyweds took photos with their bridal party and family.  We brought everyone in to the reception area and then introduced the parents and bridal party to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” by Stevie Wonder but changed it up to, one of our favorites, “Come and Get Your Love” by Redbone to introduce the Bride & Groom. Stephanie’s Dad said a very nice welcome speech then Daniel’s Dad said a blessing to open up dinner. Dinner was served with Motown, oldies, light, upbeat, classic soul and jazz gave the occasion a timeless touch, allowing guests to share memories and enjoy the delicious cuisine from 39 West Catering.

After beautiful toasts from the Bride’s brother and then the Best Man, the newlyweds took the dance floor to share their first dance as a married couple to “Baby, I Need Your Loving” by The Four Tops.  Stephanie and her Dad then danced their Father/Daughter Dance to an instrumental version of “Perfect” by Ed Sheehan followed by the Mother/Son Dance to “Wonder of You” by Elvis . We opened up the dance floor with the Anniversary Dance and it was immediately clear that Stephanie and Daniel’s guests came to celebrate!  We happily obliged and had a really great night of dancing and celebrating this amazing couple.

Stephanie and Daniel designed their timeline to maximize time spent on the dance floor, and I’m really glad they did! Their friends and family kept dancing the entire time, all the way up to the last song of the evening, “Hooked on a Feeling” by Blue Swede. It was a fitting song to capture the mood of pure joy and celebration of this wonderful couple’s wedding. The night ended with a very fun sparkler exit. Congratulations and best wishes, Stephanie and Daniel!

Kelly & Steven’s Sweet Wedding at The Sutherland in Wake Forest, NC

Kelly and Steven at The Sutherland by Carolyn Scott Photography

Kelly & Steven had their wonderful, classic and fun wedding at The Sutherland wedding venue in Wake Forest, NC on a gorgeous summer day and we got to help make it a great day for them!  Please check out the amazing work by Carolyn Scott Photography below.

The couple’s wedding ceremony was on the beautiful and intimate front lawn of The Sutherland.  The cocktail hour was on the back patio and the reception was in the pavilion.  The ceremony music was acoustic covers of contemporary songs like ‘Latch’ and ‘Fast Car’.

To start their reception, we got their guests a little fired up and brought everyone in to the carriage house. Steven and Kelly are huge Game of Thrones fans so we played the intro to G.O.T. for their Grande Entrance and they had an absolute blast with it. Kelly & Steven chose ‘I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)’ by Sleeping at Last (great cover!). The dinner playlist was classic, timeless music style similar to Michael Buble and Harry Connick Jr. Their dancing playlist included Pitbull, Sia, DJ Kool and other old-school hits, MGMT.  Along with the wonderful vendors below, we helped throw this amazing couple a great wedding reception full of dancing and laughter.  After a few hours, things got more and more fun and everyone really got into partying so at the very last minute the bride and groom chose to really close it out strong with ‘Shots!’ by LMFAO ft Lil Jon and the dance floor just about blew up!
