If you dream of a storybook wedding in a castle like Reynolds and Matthew did, The Barclay Villa in Angier NC is the closest you can get locally!

The ceremony was held in the back in front of a stone gazebo and officiated over by their friend Guy. They had a live pianist and 2 singers provide the music. I ran mics for Guy and Matthew.  After the ceremony that included a hand binding portion, they recessed and the 130 guests made their way to the other side of Barclay Villa to the pool area for cocktails. I had a mix of classic instrumental jazz playing.

After the cocktail hour, guests were invited to the ballroom for dinner and dancing by planner Chelsy Ferguson from The Gathering Co.  The two story room looked beautiful with floral arrangements by Jeffrey’s Florist.  After guests were seated, I introduced the Parents from the hall to “A Sky Full Of Stars”. The wedding party was next from the top of the stairs. Reynolds and Matthew were introduced to “Levels” by Avicii and came to the bottom of the stairs for their first dance to “Perfect Duet” by Ed Sheeran and Beyonce.  It was so sweet that they were singing it to each other.  Her Parents welcomed everyone and the dinner buffet opened. During dinner I had instrumental and vocal standards playing.

After dinner we had a few toasts and the cake cutting to “Lover Of The Light” by Mumford and Sons. While the staff served the cake and coffee we had the Parents dances.  Matthew and his Mother were first to “Carolina Moon” by Jim Reeves.  It was so touching and a song the Grandparents danced to 75 years ago! Reynolds and her Father’s dance was next that started with “Cinderella”, then after a few minutes I played “The Wobble” that they did alone for a minute, then opened the floor to everyone that filled it for the next 2 hours.

During the dancing I played some beach music, oldies, 80’s a few line dances and Top 40.  We paused for the bouquet toss to “Run The World” by Beyonce and garter toss to “Pour Some Sugar On me”.  We ended with “Friends In Low Places” and finally “Sweet Caroline” before a sparkler exit.

Thank you for everything Reynolds, Matthew, Kathy and Chelsy!  I had the best time DJing this wedding.  The pics and video by Warren McCormack Photography and Memories Of A Lifetime look amazing!!
