I was back at the Cotton Room to DJ another wedding for the second day in a row, this time for Kim and Will on July 28th. I LOVE The Cotton Room and was thrilled to be back.
Kim and Will’s ceremony was held along the far wall with floor to ceiling windows. They had Reverend Ed Sansbury to officiate. He always does such a wonderful job! The Parents through their children walked down the aisle to “Arioso” by Bach. Kim and her Father entered to “Canon In D”. After a short service that included readings by all 4 of the children, they recessed to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”. Ed invited the 50 guests to the social hour in the back of the room and I started a mix of rock, county, standards and classic soul.
After pics were done by Photographer Megan Kime, the white linens opened to reveal the ballroom and I invited guests to their seats for dinner. I introduced just Will and Kim to “On Top Of The World” by Imagine Dragons and they came in for their first dance to “Thinking Out Loud”. Her Father joined her on the floor for their dance to “What A Wonderful World”. Will escorted his Mother to the floor after that for their dance to “Like Jesus Does” by Eric Church. His Uncle Mike blessed the meal and the family style southern dinner came out. During dinner I played more soft rock, country, soul and standards.
After dinner we had a toast by Will’s childhood friend Trey and an anniversary dance to “Unchained Melody”. I opened the floor for a while with some Motown and top 40 before pausing for the Ambrosia Cakes cutting to “How Sweet it is” by James Taylor. While the staff served the cake, I opened the floor again with some top 40 and hip-hop (and The Git Up” twice for Kalee, the cutest little flower girl!!).
We ended the night with a last dance to a minute of “Wonderful Tonight” then a surprise mix into ”Shut Up and Dance” to end the night.
Thank you Kim, Will and Chris!! I was honored to DJ for you!
