John Batchelor and Brittney Martoccia made the trip from their home in Indianapolis to Charleston for their picture-perfect Wild Dunes wedding at Wild Dunes Resort on September 19th.
I was able to work with some truly great people on this wedding, including: Samantha Martin and her wonderful team at Wild Dunes Resort, Aly Cokeley of Palmetto Weddings who made my job so much easier (and will be coordinating a certain someone’s wedding in March in Charleston…), and April Harnish who took some amazing shots from the entire day. Can’t wait to see the final pictures, especially those great dance floor shots!
John and Brittney had a beautiful ceremony performed by Benjamin Cokeley, of Palmetto Weddings, with the ocean as the perfect backdrop. After guests enjoyed some cocktails on the deck, everyone made their way to the ballroom for the reception. I then introduced the new Mr. and Mrs. Batchelor to “This is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan. The newlyweds then danced their first dance as husband and wife to “Close Your Eyes” by Michael Bublé. After the first dance, Brittney danced with her father for their father-daughter dance to “My Little Girl” by Tim McGraw. John and his mother had their mother-son dance to “I Hope You Dance” by LeeAnn Womack. Brittney also danced with her stepfather to “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts.
After some amazing food, catching up with family and friends, and funny and very heartfelt speeches by the Maids of Honor and Best Men, we opened up the dance floor with “I Want You Back” by Jackson 5. I knew they were going to be a great group of people when we were barely through the second course of dinner and guests started requesting songs and wanting to know when the music was starting! I played everything, but they really liked the ‘90’s hip-hop…if you couldn’t tell from the intro song. I played everything from DJ Kool, Michael Jackson, Usher, Lil Jon, Old Crow Medicine Show, Nelly, Sir Mix A Lot to Van Morrison, Frankie Valli, and ACDC.
We closed the night out with “Don’t Stop Believin’” before sending off the new couple with a sparkler exit. No one was ready to stop partying, they were great!
This was one of the most fun weddings I have had the privilege of DJing and feel very fortunate to get to know John and Brittney. We all at Bunn DJ Company wish them all the best and a lifetime of happiness!
