First Dance

Amy and Brian chose downtown Raleigh’s Solas Nightclub for their wedding ceremony and reception on March 12th. As guests arrived for the ceremony on the top floor they were treated by music performed by a live violinist. The short ceremony was soon over and guests made their way to the first floor for cocktails. During the cocktail hour I had a mix of beach music, standards and classic rock playing.

The Wedding Introductions

After pics were taken by photographer Rachel from Thirteenth Moon Photography, the guests were invited up to the 2nd floor for dinner and dancing by Solas’s Miriam. I had the same mix playing on this floor and went to line the wedding party up. The small wedding party (including their funny ring bearer Chase) was introduced to “Sirius” by Alan Parsons and Amy & Brian to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” by Stevie Wonder. They came right to the dance floor and had their first dance to Heatwave’s “Always and Forever”. One of my favorite ballads ever! The buffet opened in the back of the room and I continued the same music mix during dinner.

The Dancing

After dinner we had the toasts and opened the floor with some beach music and oldies that filled it for the next 2 hours.   During dancing I played beach music, oldies, some current top 40, 80’s and a couple line dances until the last dance to “Wonderful Tonight”.

Thank you!

What a fun night and a great group to DJ for. Congratulations Amy & Brian!
