I was so excited to DJ Mia & Jonny’s wedding reception at The Historic Carolina Inn on April 2nd with some of my favorite fellow vendors in Kristen from The Inn, photographer Cara from F8 Photo Studios and planner extraordinaire Stephanie & Lauren from Viva L’Event! The weather was perfect for their outdoor ceremony with 120 guests.
The Wedding Cocktail Hour
After the ceremony guests made their way inside to the Chancellor’s Ballroom for cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres. After some pics were taken by Cara, the wedding party was ready to be introduced and I invited guests to their seats. The parents and wedding party entered to “Timber” by Ke$ha & Pitbull and Mia and Jonny to “GDFR” by Flo Rida. They came to the dance floor and had their first dance to “I’ll Be” by Edwin McCain for a couple minutes, then into “Harlem Shake” with the wedding party joining them on the floor for a short group dance. It was pretty great! Jonny then welcomed everyone and the salads and entree’s came out. During dinner I had a mix of soft rock, classic soul and standards playing.
After dinner we had toasts by the Maid Of Honor and Best Man and the cake cutting to “Sugar” by Maroon 5. Get it?? Mia joined her father on the floor for their dance to “Days Like This” by Van Morrison and Jonny escorted his mother to the floor for their dance to “Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica. Before opening the floor to everyone we had a longest married couple dance to “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne with the winning couple married 59 years!! I opened the floor to everyone with some Motown and top 40 that filled it for the next 3 hours.
The Bouquet, Garter and the Last Dance
We paused briefly for the bouquet toss to “Single Ladies” and garter toss to “Pour Some Sugar On Me”, then back to dancing to some current hip-hop and dance music. We ended the night with “Turn Down For What”. What a fun night and awesome crowd to DJ for! Thank you Mia, Jonny, Mary, Cara, Kristen & Stephanie for an amazing night!
