Kelly & Steven’s Sweet Wedding at The Sutherland in Wake Forest, NC

Kelly and Steven at The Sutherland by Carolyn Scott Photography

Kelly & Steven had their wonderful, classic and fun wedding at The Sutherland wedding venue in Wake Forest, NC on a gorgeous summer day and we got to help make it a great day for them!  Please check out the amazing work by Carolyn Scott Photography below.

The couple’s wedding ceremony was on the beautiful and intimate front lawn of The Sutherland.  The cocktail hour was on the back patio and the reception was in the pavilion.  The ceremony music was acoustic covers of contemporary songs like ‘Latch’ and ‘Fast Car’.

To start their reception, we got their guests a little fired up and brought everyone in to the carriage house. Steven and Kelly are huge Game of Thrones fans so we played the intro to G.O.T. for their Grande Entrance and they had an absolute blast with it. Kelly & Steven chose ‘I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)’ by Sleeping at Last (great cover!). The dinner playlist was classic, timeless music style similar to Michael Buble and Harry Connick Jr. Their dancing playlist included Pitbull, Sia, DJ Kool and other old-school hits, MGMT.  Along with the wonderful vendors below, we helped throw this amazing couple a great wedding reception full of dancing and laughter.  After a few hours, things got more and more fun and everyone really got into partying so at the very last minute the bride and groom chose to really close it out strong with ‘Shots!’ by LMFAO ft Lil Jon and the dance floor just about blew up!

Maddie & Mike’s Wedding at Junction West in Raleigh, NC

Maddie & Mike’s Wedding at Junction West by Brett Seay Photo

What a special night for an amazing bride & groom!  We got to celebrate with Maddie & Mike and their friends and family at Junction West in downtown Raleigh, NC and it was spectacular.  Luckily for everyone, Maddie’s mom is great friend of ours and the best wedding designer you’ll ever work with.  Check out the uplighting in candlelight that we provided which really set the room off in the prettiest direction.

We have been lucky enough to work with this group for quite a few weddings now and we have gotten to know some great people through the years!

This was a super joyous wedding from the very beginning and we loved adding our touch to the soundtrack.  Maddie & Mike’s music list was, in a word or two, classic and perfect.  Our goal at every wedding is to get everyone dancing and it definitely happened at this one.  This is a wedding that the family will be talking about for years to come and we hope it brings a smile to their face like it does to ours.

Keep on dancing Maddie & Mike!

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!

Trey & Paul’s North Carolina Museum of Art NCMA Wedding in Raleigh, NC

Paul and Trey were married and had their wedding reception at the NC Museum of Art.  The wedding backdrop was a beautiful, custom piece made by Paul and Trey.   “Simple Gifts” by YoYo Ma & Alison Krauss signaled the entrance of the entire wedding party, including Trey and then Paul.  The formalities were beautiful and somewhat typical, until they vows.  Trey and Paul, both had hand held microphones and had prepared loving, thoughtful and simply beautiful vows.  The vows were a topic of conversation for weeks prior to the big day.  They had been preparing for quite some time and were quite moving.  The couple had been together for years and it was evident at the end of the ceremony.  When the couple was announced, officially as a couple, once they kissed and were announced, the crowd erupted in screams and applause!  That was the cue for the recessional song – “Finally” – CeCe Peniston!  A positively perfect ending to one of the most beautiful and joyous ceremonies I’ve seen in a very long time.

The cocktail hour followed and then it was time for the grand entrance of the couple. We revved up the crowd which didn’t take much at all because everyone was very ready for the introduction.   “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” by Starship was cued and as the couple came around the corner into the dining area their family and friends went crazy!  Paul and Trey, together, entered the room, holding hands with the biggest smiles on their faces you have ever seen!  They made their way around the entire room and then found their seat. At which poiint, dinner followed and then the cake cutting.

The toasts were a high point in the evening. They were very entertaining, passionate, meaningful, thoughtful and some were absolutely hilarious!  They went on for a solid hour!

The first dance and an officially same-sex married couple was “Pure & Simple” by Dolly Parton and it moved everyone into the main reception hall and focused attention on the dance floor.

As the song faded the applause slowed down, the dance floor ignited with screams to “I’m Coming Out” by Diana Ross.  There was not an available square inch available anywhere near the dance floor for the rest of the evening!

It was an evening full of joy, love, happiness, thankfulness for family and friends and togetherness.

A Perfect Wedding at Morris Peaceland Farm for Barbara & Scott

Morris Peaceland Farm Wedding by Megan Kime Photography – All Around Raleigh DJ

Want to know what we really, truly loved about Barbara & Scott’s wedding?  They really did it exactly how they wanted to do it and it turned out perfectly amazing and everything they could have asked for! We met Barbara about one year before their wedding date.  Barbara was a general manager at a local hotel that we do a lot of events at so the pressure was on us!

The wedding day was beyond perfect.  Sunny and dry yet a cool breeze is an amazing wedding day at a venue that really accentuates the outdoor space.  The ceremony setting right by the pond and directly across from the reception site was very picturesque.  They chose ceremony songs that were traditional but contemporary remakes which is perfect. Check out all of the amazing photos by our friend Megan with Megan Kime Photography. Kathi at Morris Peaceland Farm and her team are so hands on and wonderful to work with.  It is so nice to work at a venue where the owners truly put their heart and soul into each event.  After Scott & Barbara’s ceremony, everyone moved to the barn for cocktails and tunes to upbeat contemporary music like Ray LaMontagne. A very funny grand entrance with the ol’ ball and chain was quickly followed by the first dance, father/daughter then mother/son dances.  We opened dinner with a welcome by Barbara’s Dad and a blessing by Scott & Barbara’s daughter Savannah.  Check out the photos of the welcome, blessing and also the after-dinner speeches using our trademark vintage mic!

To open up the dance floor, we started with a special dance with Scott and the girls which immediately gave way to a surprise ‘Watch Me Whip’ performance by Scott!  The guests loved it and the dance floor was packed immediately and all night long.  This was such a fun group!  The couple held off on choosing a last song of the night on purpose because they wanted to choose just before.  We decided on ‘One’ by Metallica of course.  And, of course, you have to play the long version!

Thanks for letting us rock out your amazing wedding Barbara & Scott!

“Amazing Experience – Everything from start to finish was perfect! Eric went (cliche I know) above and beyond to make sure our wedding was everything we wanted. He tailored our play list to match our style and taste. Held one on one meetings with us to go over song choices, listen to options, make sure we had the chance to choose a song for every important moment through out the day! Even beyond the music, Eric gave recommendations for other vendors. Even sent a little “You’re getting married” gift! Eric, thank you for making our wedding so special! Thank you for your wonderful personality, being organized and making sure every detail was covered and being so excited to help make our day great! I absolutely recommend All Around Raleigh DJ to any and every bride!” – Barbara & Scott

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!

The Barn of Chapel Hill Wedding for Sabrina & Rob

Wow, did we really get to be a part of this good looking couple’s gorgeous wedding?!  We got to work an amazing team of wedding vendors but most of our interactions were with Alexia and Dana from C&D Events. It cannot be overstated how nice it is to work with the professional team at C&D.  We already had a ton of experience coming out to The Barn of Chapel Hill but every time we show up we are stunned by the beauty of it and the dedication by the owners.

Sabrina & Rob chose to let us provide the audio and microphones for the very sweet and beautiful wedding ceremony on the patio at The Barn of Chapel Hill.  Then the cocktail hour was full of drinks and games and music on the back patio while the couple went out for their portraits with Ally and Bobby.

Just before the grand entrance, we opened up The Barn, brought everyone in and the rest is history as you’ll see in the photos below.

Thank you Rob & Sabrina for letting us be a part of your wedding day!

Casey & Orlando’s La Hora Loca Wedding at Renaissance North Hills

Casey & Orlando’s La Hora Loca Raleigh Wedding All Around Raleigh DJ Carolina Media Star

One more amazing wedding this year that we get to brag about!  Please enjoy this all-too-short synopsis of an amazing evening that we shared with Casey & Orlando and 150 amazing people.  We only got to chat with Orlando & Casey via phone but we got a great feel for this part Colombian wedding.  Orlando and his family had a serious taste for fun Latin music and shared it with us. By the time the night was over we felt like we had known Casey & Orlando our whole life! Check out the absolutely amazing photos by Carolina Media Star and pay them a visit if you’re looking for a great photographer.

 

Casey’s review on Google Maps:

Our DJ was THE BEST!!!!! We knew he was our DJ after he talked to us on the phone for almost an hour even before we had hired him for the wedding. He did an excellent job communicating with us before and he far exceeded our expectations on our big day!!! – Casey
