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!

Casie & Nathan’s Wedding at Walnut Hill in Raleigh, NC

Casie & Nathan by Blissmore Photography

 

We met this wonderful couple at an open house almost exactly one year before their wedding and it was an instant connection!  They were visiting and working with our friends at Lily Rose Events to help choose their wedding vendors.

The most important thing to Casie & Nathan was to have fun and make their wedding day fun for their guests too.  We can work with that plan!

We started the evening off with their wedding ceremony in the Walnut Hill barn.  After the ceremony,  everyone moved to cocktail hour under the tent in the front grassy area at Walnut Hill where the guests enjoyed appetizers from the wonderful folks at Southern Harvest Catering and music via our wireless 3rd speaker.  After a quick flip, we invited everyone back to the barn where we introduced the couple right into the First Dance followed by the Father/Daughter and Mother/Son Dances.  Everyone was in such a rush to get dancing that we invited everyone onto the dance floor immediately and they didn’t stop until the sparkler exit.  Guests of every age had a blast just like they wanted!

Congratulations to Casie & Nathan and thank you!

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.
