Brittany & Binal chose the top floor of Raleigh’s Cardinal Club for both their wedding ceremony and reception.  It is a beautiful room with huge floor to ceiling windows overlooking Raleigh.  You can see for miles from this room!

After the ceremony, guests made their way to the front room for cocktails while the Rebecca Naderman and the Club staff got the room ready for dinner and dancing.  Brittany had a live pianist provide music for the cocktail hour.  The room was ready, pictures of the wedding party were taken and Brittany and Binal were ready to get the reception underway.  Guests made their way back into the North dining room and I was ready to go.

The wedding party was introduced to Michael Franti & Spearhead’s “Say Hey” and each couple danced into the room with their own unique move.  Brittany and Binal came into the room and stopped on the dance floor for their very, very special first dance!  I invited Brittany’s brother Robert up and he sang and played acoustic guitar for their first dance, a cover of Matchbox Twenty’s “Overjoyed”.  He was awesome and I will never forget what a special moment this was!

The wedding party, Brittany and Binal took their seats and the food stations opened shortly with a potato bar, Indian bar and satay station.  I had a mix of standards playing during dinner.  After dinner, we had toasts by the Binal’s Best man, Brittany’s parents and her brother and then the Ambrosia Cakes cake cutting to Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours”.

I opened the floor with “My Girl” and guests started dancing.  I even included a few indian songs for Binal’s family.  The night came to an end with “Sweet Caroline” and the floor was filled with their friends and family singing along.  What a wonderful couple and it was great to see that they both had a HUGE grin on their face the entire time.  They are so happy together!
