Ashley & Patrick’s Rustic Wedding at Cross+Main in Youngsville, NC

Sometimes clients hire us only a few weeks before their event and sometimes they reach out to us very early in the process.  Ashley & Patrick hired us almost a year before their wedding because they REALLY wanted to have an amazing wedding reception that flowed smoothly and was a blast for all age groups on their wedding day…and they got it!

Ashley & Patrick’s had their small town feeling wedding reception out at the lovely Cross + Main in Youngsville, NC. They did their staged photos with Veritas Digital Photography out on Main Street with all of the quaint small town signs and storefronts.  Then they moved inside for the reception.

The buffet by Rocky Top Catering was amazing, of course!  Ashley and Patrick have very diverse musical tastes. The Grand Entrance was to ‘Uptown Funk’ by Bruno Mars then we shifted into the first dance which was to the lovely tune ‘Unchained Melody’ by Elvis Presley with the Mother/Son and Father/Daughter dances to ‘My Wish’ by Rascal Flatts and ‘I Loved Her First’ by Heartland respectively.

There were two things that really made this wedding unique: they made it very clear to us that it was important to incorporate their older guests into the wedding dancing so played a lot of fun older dance tunes, but after all IT IS a wedding, so things got a little out rowdy as the night went on.  Also the toasts from Ashely sister, who was her Maid of Honor and Patrick’s Best Man were AMAZING!  We’ve got some great shots on our trademark vintage microphone (which we made wireless!) in the photos below.

Ashley & Michael by Amy Allen Photography

Ashley & Michael were married on a beautiful late summer day at The Stockroom at 230 Fayetteville Street in Raleigh.  Their ceremony and reception were both at the same venue separated by a cocktail hour for their guests at The Big Easy in downtown Raleigh right across the street.  Ashley and I first met at a wedding about one year before that over a few wonderful cups of coffee.  She is a coordinator with Sweet Sarabell Events and she decided that All Around Raleigh DJ was the right DJ for her based on her experience working with us.  What an amazing compliment because wedding planner get to work with so many different DJs!  We really had a great time at this wedding getting to know Ashley & Michael and their wonderful parents and great friends and family.  The wedding party all stayed at the downtown Raleigh Marriott and their pre-wedding photos were taken there. Take a look below to see the videography by Honeydew Films, the vendors that helped put it all together, Ashley & Michael’s timeline and some spectacular photos!

Kathleen & Darren’s Wedding at Jiddi Space & Courtyard in Raleigh, NC

Darren and Kathleen were married in downtown Raleigh at Jiddi Space and Courtyard.  The courtyard served as the location for the wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and dancing.  The processional for the ceremony was ‘I Can’t Help Falling in Love’ by Daniel Jang and recessional was ‘This Will Be’ by Natalie Cole. After the ceremony and cocktail hour outside in the courtyard dinner, toasts, and the cake cutting were inside.  For the cocktail hour, the clients chose a great mix with the likes of Nat King Cole and Ella Fitzgerald. The music for dinner was more contemporary music with Jason Mraz and Jack Johnson.  Immediately after dinner, their first dance was to ‘L.O.V.E.’ by Nat King Cole and then DJ Michael got dance floor hopping right away.  The dance floor stayed full all night and it was such a fun wedding to be a part of.  They ended the night by with all of their guests circled around them with ‘Country Roads’ by John Denver setting the tone for a great end of the evening!
