Brier Creek Country Club Wedding for Lauren and Renato in Raleigh, NC

How much did we love working with Lauren & Renato?! Soooo much!  We met Lauren & Renato at small event in Lafayette Village about a year before their wedding and we immediately noticed and appreciated how excited they were to get married and they just seemed to smile all the time.  They ended up working with a few of the members of the NC Wedding Ring: Watkins Flowers of Distinction, Kevin Seifert Photography and us of course.  Brier Creek Country Club hosted their wedding and looked perfect as always!  Their on-site coordinator was Shannon and she was such a pleasure to work with and really catered to the clients on their wedding day.

Lauren & Renato’s music choices were a mix of very contemporary and casual like Haley Reinhart and Ed Sheeran to classic wedding music and great Latin dancing music.  Their wedding day was upbeat, emotional, incredibly fun and even better than they ever expected!  You’re going to love seeing all the happy smiling faces in the great photos from Kevin Seifert Photography below.

Enjoy married life and best wishes to Renato & Lauren!

We loved reading this review from Lauren & Renato

“Having All around Raleigh DJ was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Eric Hodgden was our DJ and he did an amazing job. He was always willing to help and answer all of our questions we had during the planning of our wedding. He met with us a couple of times and followed up with emails fairly quickly. The day of the wedding, Eric did an incredible job by keeping everyone entertained with great music and announcements for our events in the reception. We couldn’t have been happier how our wedding turned out, thanks to the music provided by Eric. As some people said, our wedding was lit! We highly recommend booking All around Raleigh DJ for your wedding day! Thank you so much, Lauren and Renato”

Missy & Ricky’s Chatham Station Wedding in Cary, NC

Missy and Ricky tied the knot on a beautiful late spring evening at Chatham Station in Cary, NC.  What an amazing wedding venue they chose!  Chatham station has tons of natural light and whitewashed brick which makes for great photos.  The layout, design, florals and the overall timeline were incredibly well thought out by Sweet SaraBelle Weddings & Events.

Our newest favorite wedding photographer, Megan Kearns Photography, had a connection with this couple that was obvious.  You’re going to love her work in the gallery below. Missy and Ricky have been together for over ten years and it showed on their wedding day.  They shared their heartfelt love for each other throughout the evening. They danced together a lot and enjoyed each other the whole each other’s company throughout the evening.

Missy’s father’s speech was really emotional, and even though it took him a couple of tear filled pauses to get through it, he truly conveyed how much he loved both Missy and Ricky. After the meal was over, Missy and Ricky’s friends and family rushed the dance floor and kept DJ Evan busy with tons of great requests all night. Everyone had a blast on the dance floor!  Finally, as the night came to an end, Missy and Ricky had one of the best popper exits (cool photo alert) we have ever seen!

 

Thank you for trusting us with your spectacular wedding day. Congrats again Missy & Ricky!

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

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!

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!
