Chantal & Alex’s Wedding at Bay 7 in Durham
Chantal & Alex had a wonderful wedding ceremony and reception at Bay 7 in Durham NC on December 30th! I provided sound for the ceremony and music for the reception.
The Wedding Ceremony
The ceremony was held on the first floor of Bay 7 and officiated over by Rabbi Gruber. The room looked beautiful with floral arrangements by Tre Bella. Music was performed live by Save The Date Music. After a short ceremony that included reading and signing of the marriage contract, the 100 guests made their way upstairs for cocktail and live music by a pianist.
After some pictures were taken by photographer James from Walters & Walters, planners Amanda & Katherine from A Swanky Affair invited guests back downstairs for dinner and dancing. I introduced Chantal & Alex and they came down the stairs to their sweetheart table. Both their parents welcomed everyone including all the guests from Russia and the salads and entrees came out. During dinner I had a mix of standards, soft rock and classic soul playing.
After dinner the Shutterbooth photo booth opened, we had the Ashley Cake Cutting to “Sugar, Sugar” and the toasts. They made the way to the dance floor for their first dance to “Zichiti L’Ahov” (A Hebrew song) and I invited everyone to join them after a couple minutes, and they did. Chantal danced with her Father after that and Alex with his Mother. I opened the floor with “Hava Nagila” and it filled very shortly. For the next 2.5 hours the floor was filled to 80’s, 90’s and early 2000’s hits as well as some oldies thrown in. I ended the night with Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” that turned into a big sing a long before everyone left for the after party at Tyler’s next door.
What a fun night and great couple! Congratulations Chantal & Alex.
