Lizzie and Jordan’s Wedding At The Rickhouse
Lizzie and Jordan had me as their wedding DJ at the amazing Durham’s Rickhouse that backs up to the Two Doors Distilling. They have great taste inn music and I was excited to play for them and their 150 guests!
The Cocktail Hour
After a beautiful the ceremony at Duke Chapel the guests had a little break before heading over to The Rickhouse for the reception. It gave photographer Hooman from Vesic Photography and Phil & Jess from Twenty-One Films some time to get some great shots! When the guests arrived for the cocktail hour I had a mix of rock, classic soul, standards and alt-country playing. The room looked amazing with hung market lights and uplighting by Get Lit.
The Introductions and First Dance
When the wedding party arrived I invited the guest to find their seats and went out to line the wedding party up with help from planner Dana from C and D Events. The wedding party came in to “Magic” by B.O.B and each couple had their own personal dance moves on the dance floor. Lizzie & Jordan came in to “On Top Of The World” by Imagine Dragons and came in to loud applause. They had their first dance to “Swept Away (Sentimental Version)” by The Avett Brothers and then welcomed everyone. The buffet opened and I continued the same music mix.
After dinner we had the toasts and parents dances. Lizzie and her Stepfather danced to “What A Wonderful World” and Jordan and his mother to “Find Your Wings” by Mark Harris. I invited the married couples to the floor for an anniversary dance to “Can’t Help Falling In Love” before opening the floor to everyone. Motown and top 40 followed with 75% of guests hitting the floor during the first 2 songs. They danced hard for 2 hours to top 40, classic party songs, lots of 80’s and some sing-a-longs. We paused for the cake cutting and bouquet & garter toss, then back to dancing till the last dance. We ended the night with “You Make My Dreams Come True” and a sparkler exit. A couple of my favorite moments were looking out and seeing a Grandmother having a blast to “Shout” and an impromptu conga line to “Brown Eyed Girl”.
What a fun night and awesome couple. Thank you Lizzie, Jordan and Dana!!
