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 transitioned 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!
