I was so excited to be back at Merrimon Wynne in downtown Raleigh again! This time for Brianne and Casey’s wedding on Friday, November 1st.

Their ceremony was held on the lawn and I provided mics and music.  Their officiant was Brianne’s Brother, Beau, who did an amazing job! As the 100 guests arrived I had a mix of light classical music playing.  The Parents and Groomsmen entered to the “Masters Theme”.  The Bridesmaids entered to “Minuet in G’ and Brianne and her Father to “Canon In D”.  After a short service with a couple readings, they recessed to “Triumphal March”.  Beau invited guests into the house for the cocktail hour where The Merrimon Wynne handled the music.

After pics were done by The Picture Guy, planner Kristin with Viva L’Event invited everyone into the Carriage house where I was ready. The room looked beautiful with arrangements by Plume Events.  I left music playing and went inside to line them up for intros.  I introduced the wedding party to “The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air” theme and Brianne and Casey to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”.  They came in to loud applause and had their first dance to “Claire de Lune” from Oceans 11.  After a couple minutes, I invited the wedding party to join them until the end of the song.  Her Father welcomed everyone and gifted Casey a bag of candy to bribe Brianne with.  So funny!!  Chef Beau Bennett from Beau Cateringwelcomed everyone and described the food stations before they opened. During dinner I had a mix of rock, classic soul and standards playing.

After dinner we the toasts and Cupcake Shoppe cake cutting to “How Sweet It Is”. While the staff cut the cake and served it, we had the dual Parents dances to “What A Wonderful World”. An Anniversary dance followed to “The Way You Look Tonight” by Sinatra.  I opened the floor to everyone with “My Girl” that filled it with young and old.  For the next 2 hours guests enjoyed dancing, lawn games and visiting around the fire pit.

We had a last dance to “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne before a sparkler exit from the front of the House. Thank you Brianne, Casey, Kristin, Brittnee and Abby.  That was a fun wedding!!
