Michelle & Joseph’s Angus Barn Wedding in Raleigh, NC

 

Michelle & Joseph were incredibly fun to work with and had a really fun vision for their wedding day. We met this lovely couple about six months before their wedding date and they immediately let us know that they wanted the best DJ company to make sure their family and friends had an amazing time since so many were coming from out of town and they were very special to them.

The wedding took place on a beautiful evening with a casual cocktail hour using the outside/inside The Pavilion at Angus Barn.  We announced the parents, bridal party and bride and groom during a rousing grand entrance to ‘Dynamite’ by Taio Cruz followed immediately by the ‘I Don’t Dance’ by Lee Brice.  We rolled right into dinner by the amazing Angus Barn following a welcome and blessing.  After dinner we enjoyed toasts and cake cutting before the special family dances.  We opened up the dance floor with an anniversary dance because family was especially important to Joe & Michelle.  After that the dance floor was absolutely packed from start to finish.

You’re going to love the video by Morgan Scott Films and photos by Southern Love Studios (no longer in business).

Thank you for treating us to a wonderful evening and best wishes to Michelle & Joe!

Ashley & Adam’s Wedding at Market Hall in Raleigh, NC

Ashley & Adam’s Wedding by Morgan Caddell Photography

 

Ashley & Adam are two of the most fun clients that we’ve ever gotten to DJ for!  They are very good with friends with some of our favorite wedding coordinators with C&D Events which is always a little extra special.

We welcomed the bride and groom into the reception after the cocktail hour and moved quickly into shortened versions of the first dance, Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances.  Adam & Ashley made it a priority to accentuate dancing and fun at their reception so having those dances right away helped us move quickly after dinner by the amazing Catering Works

The toasts by the Best Man and Maid of Honor were fun and very touching and you’ll love the photos below by Morgan Caddell Photography.  We got Ashely & Adam and their guests up and dancing for a solid 2 1/2 hours which is exactly what they hoped for!

Here’s to dancing into a happy future to Ashley & Adam!

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.

Liz + Trey Wedding at Market Hall Raleigh by Radian Photography – The Dabke Lebanese Dance

We were so incredibly lucky to be a part of Liz & Trey’s wedding at Market Hall!  We got to know Elizabeth and Trey and their wonderful family over about a year. It was obvious very quickly that this wedding was going to a fun family affair. We even got to provide this amazing group of people with uplighting at Market Hall too!

The evening started with a spirited grand entrance to ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ by Justin Timberlake which really got the multi-generational crowd pumped up.  We went straight into dinner with a welcome and blessing by Elizabeth’s Dad.  After a wonderful and relaxing dinner, we moved onto Trey & Elizabeth’s First Dance, Father/Daughter and Mother/Son Dances followed by toasts on the timeless vintage mic.  The newlyweds then moved onto the Cake Cutting of their beautiful cake done by Ashley Cakes.

The party that followed was epic! We opened up the dancing with the Palestinian heritage Dabke Wedding Dance which is always fun for everyone.  The dance floor didn’t stop rocking for even one moment!  Check out the pics below from Radian Photography.

Elizabeth & Trey were amazing to work with and we wish them the absolute best!

Karen & Dean’s Wedding at Duke Gardens in Durham, NC

Karen + Dean Duke Garden Wedding by L’amour Foto

We were so incredibly lucky to be a part of Karen & Dean’s wedding! Our friend Emily with Events by Emily connected us and we are proud to work with her and her clients. Dean & Karen were married at Sarah P. Duke Gardens on a beautiful early Fall surrounded by their friends and family. This was actually a follow up to their wedding in China a few months back! Karen and Dean are really amazing people and met in grad school while at Duke.

The chose to have a live harpist playing as the Mothers, Wedding Party, and the Bride and her Father came down the aisle with us providing microphones so the harp and the vows were nice and clear for everyone to hear. Immediately after the ceremony, the guests enjoyed a perfect cocktail hour which included some of their favorite artists like Bruno Mars.  We brought Karen and Dean into the reception to a roar of applause and had their first dance to Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran which they had choreographed together and was amazing!  Dinner was accompanied by some light Jazz music of they choosing and allowed for great conversation between new friends.  They chose to cut the cake to Everything by Michael Buble and which we transitioned into a packed open the dance floor. Everyone had a blast and celebrated the couple to some of Karen & Dean’s favorite music. As their wedding reception came to an end, they chose the song Good Life by One Republic as their last song of the night and we saw these two wonderful people off to start their new life as a married couple. It was an honor to DJ for you Dean & Karen and best wishes!
