Bry & Jonathan’s Wedding at Market Hall Park View

Bry & Jonathan by f8 Photo Studios

Where to start with one of our new favorite weddings of all time!  Bry & Jonathan enjoyed a timeless wedding at Market Hall Park View surrounded by their best friends and family.  It was a perfect night with cold temps outside but a nice warm atmosphere and lighting inside.  The wedding professional team lead by Timeless Events made the night smooth and fun for everyone.

The evening started with a very well coordinated grand entrance by the bridal party with different songs and fun choreographed dances by each couple.  The bride and groom enjoyed their first dance to ‘The Time of My Life’ while their guests all sang along and swayed. Bry and her dad then surprised everyone with a mashup Father/Daughter dance!  After dinner and toasts they cut the cake provided by Love Cake and we got the party started with the traditional Jewish Hora and, just like that, the dance floor was the place to be all night. You’re going to love the photos below from f8 Photo Studios.  The uplighting in warm candlelight and the ceremony string light chuppah were both provided by All Around Raleigh DJ.  We really enjoyed designing and installing the lighting for this wonderful couple.

Mazel Tov to Bry & Jonathan!


Debra’s Review (Bry’s Mom) on Wedding Wire:

Exceptional & Professional DJ

My daughter was married on December 19,2019 & we were fortunate to have Eric as our Dj. From my first contact with Eric to the end of the evening was an exceptional experience for us. He was so prompt in answering our emails. He kept the party going playing the perfect music keeping everyone on the dance floor the entire night. He is extremely personable making this a memorable beautiful occasion. In addition to having him DJ the wedding he dit the uplighting for the wedding & everything looked beautiful. He gave my daughter options fo the uplighting to give her the effect that she wanted. He is a true professional who loves what he does & that can be seen the way he interacts at an affair. Our guests are still commenting on what a great wedding & what great music. We are very happy with our decision to use Eric& All Around Raleigh DJ.

Megan & Brian’s Downtown Raleigh Wedding at Market Hall in Raleigh, NC


Megan & Brian were married on an early summer Saturday at Market Hall in the heart of Raleigh in an area known as City Market.  All Around Raleigh DJ not only provided the party but also the uplighting around Market Hall’s gorgeous and rustic interior walls.  You’re going to love the photos by our friend Sarah Lowder Photography and the video by one of our other favorite wedding vendors Jon Warlick Media.  Nicole and the team with Premier Party Planners were amazing to work with as always and put together an amazing vendor team as well as an amazing wedding for Megan & Brian!

It was looking a little iffy but the storms held out so the couple could have a perfectly beautiful ceremony on the downtown cobblestone street outside Market View!

This wedding was a little unique because Brian and a bunch of their friends were DJs too. The party portion of the evening started around 8:30 pm and the only time the dance floor wasn’t hopping was for a crazy bouquet toss into the decorative canopy!  We promptly had a re-run which kicked off a room full of screams! Brian & Megan provided us with a few songs for the evening but they said “we just want everyone to have a blast”!  The requests piled in from a room full of DJ’s and members of bands! The crowd was very connected to what they wanted to hear, and they were ALL IN… ALL NIGHT LONG!

Congratulations to you Megan & Brian and cheers to many years of happiness!

HERE is Megan’s review of our service:

“Jim from All Around Raleigh was the best DJ!! We were married on June 1st at Market Hall and thanks to Jim, it was a party. I come from a family of DJ’s and musicians and everyone made sure to go out of their way to tell me how great the DJ was. Flawless transitions and kept our guests on their feet all night. He also had a perfect announcer voice and helped to make sure everything was running smoothly and on time. We added the ceremony package and the uplighting package to our day. Best decisions ever!! Our wedding was outside in downtown Raleigh and all of our guests could hear the ceremony even from the back. This was very important to me. The uplighting made for the perfect atmosphere inside the reception. Thank you Jim (and Eric) for everything!! I will be recommending Eric and his company to anyone who needs a DJ!” – Megan
